Hoover Elite II Model # u4689-910 Impeller replacement

My buddy broke a window in my car and while he was helping me clean it up with my hoover he sucked up a big piece of glass that broke an impeller blade most of the way off. I removed it but now that it's out of balance it's so violent that it's unusable. I can get a replacement impeller but I can't get the old one off. I managed to twist the impeller so that it now rotates on the shaft but it doesn't seem to be threaded and it's not loosening off anymore. I've tried prying it as well but I'm afraid that I'd need to use enough force to damage the motor shaft or the motor housing assembly. I've looked at schematics and can't find anything that actually retains the impeller on the motor shaft. I've run out of ideas on how to replace the impeller in my vacuum. Please help if you've got any ideas. Thanks.

I have had to use a dremmel tool to cut the plastic around the shaft, you can also something sharp and a hammer to break away the remainer of the fan. There are no threads on the fan so to keep truning it may or may not get it off. Just have to watch and not damage the motor shaft and housing.

What is the belt part no. for a hoover elite rewind?? model no. UH71009RM

If you look up the Hoover page for the UH71009 (the non-remanufactured Elite Rewind), there are 3 different belt model numbers listed. One part number is simply for a 2 pack of the belts. See . Click on the Parts & Accessories tab.

I believe the belt part number is 38528058 , .

I hope this helps.

How do I make the noise stop?

Seems like the bearing on the side of the roller has gone bad. If there is a dirt gone deep inside, it is hard to clean it. It can also go bad if the roller hits the uneven surface like the transition strip between carpet and tile. It can unbalance the roller causing it to go off its axis and get misaligned.
This is the roller for the Hoover Elite Rewind

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


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:

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:

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:

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,

Hoover elite, model no. u4671-930

in the front on the bottom you will see 2 slots put a small screwdriver in and push up on the clips in the slots and the bottom cover will come off .be careful not to break the clips.just push up on the clip and pull out on the cover at the same time.before you replace the belt clean the old rubber off the motor shaft first ,if you don't the new belt won't last very long
