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.

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.

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.

Hoover flair needs a belt replacement


Remove the small screws on the bottom of the powerhead. On some models there are 2 hidden beneath the rubber wheels in front. Just pop the wheels out with a flat blade screwdriver and remove those two as well. Remove the hood and you have access to the belt, motor and roller.
Here's the correct belt:

There are two snaps underneath to release the bottom plate. Next remove the top cover by gently prying off the base with a flat screwdriver. this will expose the belt. Install the new belt on the roller nd then push through the hole to attach to the motor shaft. reinstall the cover and bottom plate.

Replace the belt


Once the bottom plate has been removed, the motor shaft is silver, but hard to see. hook the new belt on it first. then start rolling on the top of the large black pulley to install.

Hoover very noisy after new belt installed.


what is the belt # you have installed (generic)? Yes, there are problems with using generic belts on Hoover Vacuums. If you have noise I would suspect the roller, and replace it. the cost is about $25 and is something that you can install. The newer type are mande of wood and are very quiet.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom of the vacuum and you need to either remove the bottom plate and once you have taken the screws, etc. out the top cover will come off. And then you can proceed with the removal and the install of the new belt. 1st you need to remove @ least one end of the Hoover brushroll and take of the old belt and slide on a new belt. Once the belt is on the pulley side of the brushroll; then re-install the brushroll. Make sure that the brush is spinning freely B4 you install the new belt, then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook to use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then take and roll the belt until it is tracking straight and then re-install the top cover and or the bottom plate, tighten down the screws, levers or clips. So, 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.
