Belt length for delta 1 inch belt sander; model 31-050

I purchased 30 inch belts from a hardware store and can't get them to stretch to go over the rollers. They don't show a 31 inch only this belt and a 36 inch one The 36' belt appears too long comparing it to my broken belt. Is there a 31 belt or what do I use

SOURCE: brush roll wont turn

Might be that the the idler wheel is stuck and not engaging the V belt. If you look down just past the V belt you will see a black roller, it needs to be against the belt. It is either stuck or the asm. is broken.

SOURCE: Belt Stretched on my Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900

hi, In order to to replace the V belt the one that turns the brush, One must take off the bigger belt " drive belt" that goes over that hugh wheel towards the back. When a belt gets stretched they will not turn the brush very well. If you have bought replacement belts the bigger belt Drive comes 2 in a package. Then you have your little V belt that helps turn your roller brush over. Yes the belts don't last long on my hoover. For kpatr22101 When you rpelace that V belt it goes over the roller brush into a little groove on the brush and then over a plastic round wheel then you must put on that bigger drive belt that must fit over that hugh wheel towards back and smaller on in front. Yes it is hard to get on. the I hope this helps. Cindy G.

Most rollers have several different positions you can install the brush in check and make sure the roller height is equal.

SOURCE: The roller brush will not turn. The belt is not

Hello,

Sometimes the belt can stretch cause the roller to not turn. Also make sure the roller brush is free of any debris.

Use this link to access your vacuum to change belt or clean the roller brush.

New belt sold to me for model 116 , belt #20-40111 seems too small, is this possible?


A new belt is usually an inch or two shorter than an old belt. Belts must be stretched to almost twice their original length to be installed.

Where to purchase belts


Independent sewing and vacuum, or sew & vac stores, typically carry a wide selection of belts. Be sure to know your model number of your vacuum, even if you have the old belt, as they stretch considerably and can be difficult to match an old belt with a new one.

The belt on my Hoover Elite Rewind UH71003 keeps coming off.


Those machines come half way across the world. The belt stretches while it waits. Buy a new belt for it and you'll be good as new.. actually better.
Here's a full length description of why.

Re my Sears 3" belt


What did you use to make is smaller (to shrink?)
Is the back of the belt cloth or paper?

Dampness usually makes things stretch--
But too much moisture, and you tear easily, too!

My Hoover U6439-900 also losing belts


When upside down there is no resistance,on carpet there is.
You need to try a a fresh, genuine hoover belt and buy a spare, belts stretch and slip after 30 -90 a days of normal use, often to 25-30% oversize Hoover belts generally fit very snug. If your belt looks shiny inside, that is likely the issue. Try that and post results

Belt won't stay on


A belt will slip off because it is stretched, or the brush bearings are worn, or the motor drive shaft is misaligned.
Hoover belts fit snug.
After as little as week they begin to stretch. Even though they are not broken, they will spin loose. IF you can stop the brush with little effort and the belt keeps moving the belt is stretched. Do not buy a belt buy size, buy it by model. But 2 and store your spare under the hood of the vac if possible.For best cleaning results,change every 3-4 months if you vacuum weekly. 6 months at most.
Most times your old belt will be stretched as much as 30% oversize. If it looks shiny inside it has likely been slipping.
Before reinstalling check that your brush rolls freely and clean the bearings at the end of the brush roll.. Once reinstalled check it again before turning on the vac.

Small belt driving the brush...stretched out with hair accumulated in groove beneath belt. Is there a clutch or other means of tightening the belt. Went to store found belt...same size, therefore...


You do not by a belt by size, buy it by model only. A new Hoover belt will generally be very snug when installed. As heat builds from use it stretches and becomes worn sometimes as much as 30% oversize. Good that you have cleaned out the hair. Check the end caps of the brush as well. Go to a Hoover service center or retailer and buy the matching belt by model # on the package and you will be set.

The power drive belt of my hoover u3305-030 vacuum keeps falling off, what am I doing wrong?


Hello
One possible solution to your problem is you have the wrong size belt. Check your belt, it should have a letter on it, if it is old, it may be stretched out. Check in your owner's manual, near the belt area, or on the inside of any cover for the correct belt size(which is a letter). Be sure to check that you have the correct size and if not or if it is old, go to your local home depot($1.89+tax for Hoover Model belts) or any other store you know provides vaccuum belts, and purchase a replacement belt.

Belts


It is the flat belt that gets stretched and should be replaced at least every 6 months. The V belt wears down so it won't it right in the brush roll V. Maybe the belt tensioner wheel has a problem, sometimes they get hook up and won't engage the V belt. Check the brush roll also, if where the V belt rides in is covered up with belt, replace it. There is no adjustment, doesn't need it if everything is working the way it should.

I have a Hoover self-propelled
Posted by klsh on Jun 16, 2008
I have a Hoover self-propelled Windtunnel, purchased 6-04. It gets light use. I have replaced the v belt 3 times, once under warranty, and it must be replaced again. It appears to be in very good condition, but is stretched too big. When I purchased 2 v belts a year ago, one was already too stretched, but when my Dad took it back, the salesman put it on another model and said it was fine (Dad never mentioned this to me). Is there a way to adjust the vacuum to hold the belt tighter? Do they really just stretch out like that normally? The flat belt has never been replaced and is in great condition.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is a good idea to change your flat belt every 4 to 6 months as a rule and the V belts @ least once a year and always use the genuine Hoover belts, there are generic or replacement belts out there but they have a tendency to stretch faster then the genuine belts. What you mentioned is not unheard of and another tip is to store any extra belts in a Ziploc bags in the refrigerator. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer if you have questions or call Hoover factory and ask for tech support. 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.
