This is a parts schematic for your hoover savvy. You have to take off the brush guard on the bottom and also the cover on top (there is a screw under the round hoover logo). You will then see how the belt is attached. Very easy to do. Hope this helps

    I can't see how the belt is attached as the belt broke and I have no way of telling if it goes over,under or in the middle of the guide wheel. If it goes in the middle of the guide wheel the wheel will have to be removed and then reinstalled after installing the belt on the motor.

Roller bars on bottom not rolling


The belt has probably broken. Hoover says that the belt on this model should last the life of the vacuum, but that is rarely the case. They do wear and break. Changing the belt is simple and the belts aren't to much. You can get a replacement here:

On my Hoover Savvy U8174-900 on carpet setting, the brush spins when I pull the vacuum towards me, but stops when I push it forward. Belt is tight and fine.


Hoover savvys have two very common problems that cause this. The first and most obvious is the belt that you checked already. Many times the belt is tight but those particular belts have teeth and should you lose any teeth on the brushroller OR the belt it can cause this.

The other problem this is a symptom of is a bad switch in the handle. It sounds odd but the switch assy in these machines controls 2 motors, one that causes vacuum another that causes the belt to turn! Often time that switch assembly is bad and the smaller motor that drives the belt does not run when the handle is in a certain position. This causes your brush to stop but since the louder bigger vaccum motor is still operating you never hear the small one quit. I would run this again and listen for a difference in sound. In this case you will buy a replacement circut board that is installed in the handle (i usually replace the entire handle assy, the small extra cost is worth the dependability as nobody can seem to determine for sure what makes them go bad)

You can get the parts from any hoover service center, use their dealer locator to find the nearest one. Be sure to take the old parts in and compare when buying new, hoover makes running changes to their product so 2 machines with the same model number can be different.

Aside from a stray bad or pinched wire you're more than surely dealing with one of those two items. I'd focus on the first paragraph as that is by far most common and least expensive.

Best of Luck!!

Hoover US8174-900 Savvy Bagless


It uses a cogged belt, turn it over, remove the bottom plate, remove the other screws from the bottom, turn vac back over and remove the Hoover emblem, there is a screw there to remove and the top comes off, then you can get to and replace the belt.
