This is no problem! You will need a flat blade screwdriver and about 10 minutes!

*Always use genuine hoover parts for repairs, discount store belts can be as much as
1" longer than OEM parts, leaving you with a slipping, less than desirable effect.

To replace this belt:

  1. Remove the bottom plate by inserting the screwdriver into the slots on either side and then gently pulling up on the plate. It will pivot from the front so lift from the back.
  2. Pull out the brushroller and old belt.
  3. Remove the height adjustment knob on the top of the hood by lifting it up or prying on it.
  4. Loosen the hood by sliding the screwdriver inbetween the base and the hood and prying outward.(from the bottom) There should be arrows moulded into the base pointing to the positions where the tabs are. (4 tabs)
  5. Lift the hood off of the machine
  6. Put the new belt around the brushroller and place the brushroller in place.
  7. Pull the belt through the hole and put it over the motor spindle. Careful to make sure there is no twist in the belt. This can be difficult as there is plenty of tension on belt.
  8. Replace the hood. It should snap into place.
  9. Replace the height adjustment knob
  10. Replace the bottom plate.
Best of Luck!

Why does my hoover belt keep snapping?


Hello! Your belt will need to be replaced about twice a year. If your belt is breaking within a couple uses of you changing it, you may not have the correct belt for your vacuum. Double check the owner's manual or Hoover.com to verify the belt number for your vacuum. Always replace the belt with a genuine Hoover belt. Hope this helped!

I need a replacement belt for Hoover Elite upright vaccum ,model no. U5043-930. What belt do I get?


Hello,

Your vacuum cleaner originally came with Hoover belt part number 38528027, however Hoover has now discontinued this part number, and replaced this belt with the new belt which is part number 38528040.

The new belt is a little bit smaller then your old one, but unfortunately this is the only belt that Hoover currently makes that will fit your model.

Here's a direct link to our website if you still need to purchase one:
http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar7.html

I have also uploaded the parts diagram and instruction manual for you. The parts diagram gives you every single part number for all parts on your vacuum should ever need to know another part number. The owners manual will give you step by step instructions on how to change the belt, as well as other maintenance instructions.

Part Diagram for Hoover U5227-930:
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/vacuumcleanerbacgs/Part-diagram-hoover-u5043-930.pdf

Owners manual is actually for the commercial version of your vacuum, but this will be identical to your instruction manual which Hoover doesn't have available for free:
http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/C1414900.pdf

I hope that this information was helpful to you. If it was, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top corner of the repair.

Thank you very much,
