Re: windtunnel belt

You didn't state your model number, they have different ones. Take off the bottom plate, the belt and brushroll will be exposed. If you canned see the motor shaft to put the belt on, then the top cover will have to removed also. Usually is a couple of screws from the bottom to take out, then you wil see a slot on each side from the bottom, use a flat blade screwdriver, put intoi slot and pry up to release locking tabs, top will come off. Belt goes from brush roll to motor shaft. If this is the model that uses 2 belts, then the belt goes from the motor shaft to the bigger pulley, and the Vee belt goes from the smalled pulley to the brush roll.

How to stop the main belt from comming off the motor shaft on a hoover modle u6634-900/windtunnel

Hello there! If you have replaced the belt and it is still slipping off, you may be not have the right belt for your vacuum. This unit takes a flat belt and a v-belt. Make sure you are replacing the belts with Genuine Hoover Parts. I have included the links below where you may go to order the belts specific to your cleaner.

The wider belt is # 38528035,( package # 40201170 ), and the v-belt is # 38528034, ( package # 40201200 ). The wide belt should be replaced twice as often as the v-belt.

Belt slipped on my hoover self propelled windtunnel

Please give additional information?
Sometimes belts can be mounted in 2 directions. If installed in the wrong direction, the roller will rotate backwards and the belt can come off. Also, it is possible that the belt has stretched. Verify that the roller spins freely with the belt off. If it doesn't, remove it and clean it and verify that the bearing are good.

Flat belt on Hoover Windtunnel requires to be replaced regularly

No it is not normal. The brush roll may be bad causing extra stress on the belt. The other option is the belt is installed incorrectly. I believe this model has a brush on/off option and the belt must be correctly installed around both the motor shaft and the shaft for that brush on/off switch.

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 U5399-900 WindTunnel Vacuum

38528033 is the belt number or just 033.
40201160 is the part number for a 2 pk
sometimes they are referred to style 160 as well

All these are the same belt. Hoover makes things so simple don't they? LOL

Greetings from GoVacuum,

Here's an instructional video that we made showing how to change the belt on a Hoover Windtunnel upright. If your model is not a self propelled model, basically follow the same insturctions, expect instead of placing the belt over the pulley, just put the belt through the roller brush, and stretch the roller brush back into the agitator housing.
Please feel free to send me an email if you have any other questions. My email address is
