Question about Hoover U6437-900 / U6439-900 Windtunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum
My Hoover upright vacuum, model U6476-900, has a front agiator belt that is loose and slips on the agiator so it will not turn under a load. I replaced the beld, 385280-34, but its the same problem, too loose. Is there a tension adjustment on the tension roller? How is this tension problem corrected?
If you are looking at the belt while the vacuum is in the upright and locked position, the belt will be loose. The idler removes tension so the brush doesn't spin while you walk away and put heat marks in the carpet. Hit the lever that allows you to move the handle low, like you are vacuuming under the bed, and the belt gets tight.

Make sure brush setting is ON (carpet) not OFF (floor)

There is no tension adjustment.
Id say you uswed the wrong belt. Hoover have many many sizes of belt. Check with your dealer

There is no adjustment. As they wear they cut the groove in the roller deeper. Sure fix,and what Hoover will tell you to do is to replace the roller. If your like me though that isn't any good. so what I did was wind wax coated dental floss into the groove that the belt rides in and in and then put a couple of drops of super glue to hold the end and it works like a charm. Don't put too much in there the belt has to have a groove to ride in.
