Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
How do you open the Vacuum to change the belt? It's an old Hoover Runabout.Upright Model U4267-930. I can get the plate off and remove the roller, but the shaft/rod the belt goes on is completely enclosed. Does the top of the vacuum lift up? Thanks, Debbie

Turn vac. over, remove the buttom plate over the brush roll, then at the bottom edge of the top cover, using a flat blade screwdriver, insert into the slots and pry up to unlock the tabs, then the top cover will come off. Put the belt on the brush roll and feed the belt thru the opening and put stretch it over the motor shaft. Put the top cover back on and push to lock the tabs.

Need help installing belt on Hoover self propelled upright vacuum
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Ultra U6430-900 Wind Tunnel Bagged Upright. The best way to install the belt on a Hoover to replace one or both of the belts @ the same time for the best cleaning. The average belt change is every 4 to 6 months for best results. There is a tool that looks like a screwdriver that has a right or left angle on the end that serves as a belt puller and to hook the belt(s) onto the brushroll 1st and then take your puller and then pull or stretch the belt onto the motor pulley. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

The rod must be your brush roll. it should just pull out, Have you removed the cover over the brush roll? When you do get the brush roll out, turnb the ends and make sure they turn freely, if nit, replace it also.

I couldn't find your specific model but this may be similiar to another that you have to position the new belt around the agitator (beater bar) on the bottom of the vacuum, replace the cover, and then turn the vac over and remove the TOP cover to lift the new belt up and place it on the motor shaft/pulley. The new belt may require some effort to pull it over the pulley.
Hope this helps.
