Question about Hoover Tempo Widepath Upright Vacuum - Blue
The belt on my hoover Widepath tempo vibrates, slapping against the belt channel walls. I observed this with the sole plate off. I suspect that the belt may be stretched too much, but want to rule out agitator brush problems (though does not look excessively worn or damaged).

If you are refering to the roller underneath, the belt nees to be replaced. Simply remove 4 bottom screws and then the roller, Place new belt on roller and thenon motor shaft, pull belt with the roller to install in position and install bottom plate.

Perhaps the belt is stretched. Replace it with Hoover belt # 38528-033. Remove the rug plate on the bottom ( 4 screws ), and remove the brushroll. Place the belt around the motor shaft first, then position it around the brush, and push the brush back into the housing. Expect resistance from the belt, as it must be stretched several inches. After the brush is in place, turn it with your fingers to be sure the belt is centered, and not pinched between the brush and the housing. After replacing the bottom plate the vacuum should be ready to use.
