You have to take off the bottom plate that covers the brushroll and put the belt on the brushroll. Then stick the belt into the slot going to the motor part of the vac. Then you can put the plate back on. Next, you have to take the top of the vac off. With the vac upside down,using a straight edge screwdriver and release the pressure locks. There are two on each side of the vac,one near the rear and one up near the brushroll. Just put the screwdriver between the top cover and the base and pry. It should be fairly easy. Then you can put the belt on the pulley. I use a phillips screwdriver to strech the belt to the pulley. This is the hardest part to do. The belt number is 38528-040.

I have a Upright Hoover Elite. Can't get belt back on right.


The belt loops over the motor shaft and the brush roller. Verify that the arrows on the end caps of the brush roller are facing DOWN or you will be doing the job over again. Start with the motor shaft and stretch the belt to allow the brush roller to seat. A new belt can require a strong pull on the brush roller to get it seated.

Replace belt on hoover vacuum U4655


Turn the machine over and remove the 4 screws which hold the cover on the brush. Remove the cover and brush roller. Remove old belt. Slide new belt over the motor pulley, first. Then slide roller through new belt (if self propelled model, slide roller through the small belt, also) and slide brush roller into slots on housing (note: slots are different, match roller sides to correct slot.)

On hoover steam carpet cleaner, the brushes do not rotate on low or high settings.


Follow these steps if the Brushes Fail to Spin
•If the brushes on your Hoover carpet cleaner fail to spin, there may be a problem---some sort of blockage---with the suction or with the belt that turns the brushes.
Turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and inspect the brush area. Debris, strings, or pet hair may be tangled in the rollers, keeping them from turning. Use a pair of scissors to cut away any obstructions in this area. Flip the Hoover carpet cleaner back over, and turn it on to see if cleaning the rollers has solved the problem.
To check the belt, turn the Hoover carpet cleaner over, and remove the bottom plate screw with a Phillips head screwdriver. Investigate the belt area to see if it is broken or has somehow slipped off. If it is broken, you can order a part from Hoover.com or from many of the other online parts stores.
When the belt arrives, simply slide it on in place of the broken belt, reattach the bottom plate and turn the Hoover carpet cleaner right-side up. Turn it on to test your solution.

Vaccum not turning or sucking


Hello,

It definitely sounds like your belt is broken. If something gets vacuumed up into the brushes, and prevents the brushes from spinning, the motor will continue to try and spin the belt and the brush, but since the brushes can't spin, this will burn right through most belts.

Especially since you mentioned a sock being sucked up, and the roller brush not spinning, this is a tell tale sign of your belt needing replacing.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Hoover Windtunnel Replacement Belt, Non-Self Propelled, Hoover Part # 38528033
- Depending on how long the sock was stuck in the brush, you may need a new roller brush as well. The roller brush for your model is Hoover Part # 48414110. Here's a direct link for the roller brush for your vacuum on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/generic-hoover-windtunnel-tempo-fusion-upright-12-inch-replacement-roller-brush-hoover-part-number-4.html

If you have the Hoover Tempo Widepath vacuum that you listed the repair under, then here's a direct link back to our website, govacuum dot com, to the exact belt for your Hoover Tempo:
http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar9.html

Now, once you have a new belt, this repair is pretty straight forward. I'll explain step by step what you'll need to do to change the belt.

Step 1. Make sure your vacuum cleaner is unplugged. The easiest way to change the belt in your vacuum is to turn the machine upside down, so the handle is on the ground holding it up, then lean the vacuum over a counter top or work bench.

Step 2. Remove the bottom plate of your vacuum cleaner. You'll see on the bottom of the vacuum 4 screws that are located on each corner of the brush, remove all 4 screws, and lift up on the bottom plate that covers the roller brush.

Step 3. After removing the bottom plate, you should now be able to access the roller brush completely, and you'll probably also notice that the belt on the right side of the roller brush is broken. You may just remove the broken belt completely and throw it away. Lift straight up on the roller brush itself to remove it from the vacuum.

Step 4. Test the roller brush. After something gets stuck in the brushes, and it causes the belt to burn, there's also a good possibility that your roller brush may need replacing as well. Also the roller brush will wear down over time, and the brushes will wear down as well, greatly reducing the cleaning ability of your vacuum. You'll want to test your roller brush, to ensure that it spins freely. If it doesn't, then as you install the new belt, it's possible it could also break immediately. To test the roller brush, remove it completely from the vacuum. Holding just the end caps of the bar with your fingertips, try to spin the brush in your hands using your thumbs. This is how it should look when you test your brush (the roller brush is to a different machine, but testing it will work the same):

3a76171.jpg
The roller brush should spin at least 3 or 4 times in your hands on each spin. If the brush will not spin at all, or you feel some resistance when spinning it, then you'll probably want to go ahead and replace the roller brush as well at this point.

Step 5. Once you have your new belt, and new roller brush (if needed), it's time to install them. First wrap one side of the belt over the metal motor pulley in the back of the vacuum, opposite the roller brush. Now after you have one side of the belt wrapped around this metal pin, put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. Using the roller brush as leverage, stretch the belt with the roller brush inside of it back into the roller brush tray. You'll notice that on the left bearing cap on the end of the roller brush, there's a little rectangular shaped notch. Make sure that the rectangular notch is vertical, and slide this end into the agitator housing first, then fit the other side (circular notch) into the housing. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be able to stretch the brush with the belt back into place.

Step 6. Test the belt and the brush before putting the bottom plate back on. To make sure that belt and brush are properly installed, pull the belt forward towards the brush, and make sure that the brush spins while you're pulling the belt. If the brush does not spin, then either the belt is pinched underneath of the roller brush, or the brush is bad / installed incorrectly. Make sure that the brush spins freely before reinstalling the bottom the plate, otherwise the belt will burn and break again as soon as you turn on the vacuum.

Step 7. Reinstall the bottom plate, and screw down the four screws. Now you can turn the vacuum on, and make sure that the brush is spinning. If the brush is not spinning, repeat the steps above to make sure that the belt and brush were put in correctly.

That should fix your problem. Ideally you should change your belt at least once a year. Even if the belt doesn't break, it will stretch out. When the belt is stretched out, it will not pick up as well as a new belt will.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

How to replace vaccum belt on a hoover tempo


Turn the machine upside down. Take the screws out of the bottom plate and remove it. take out the brush roller and old belt. Wrap the new belt around the metal shaft of the motor first and put the roller inside the belt loop and use the roller as leverage to stretch the belt up to the brush housing and slide the roller in place. Give the roller a spin by hand the make sure everything moves freely before you use it. It should spin with out much effort, if it doesn't you probably have the belt pinched, and you need to free it up before putting the bottom plate back one. It will take a little elbow grease, but it will go on.

Hoovers usually list what kind of belt they take on the serial tag.

Good Luck

Hoover windtunnel vacuum belt


There are 4 screws that you need to remove. The belt lies between the roller and a pin. With a little effort, you just pull out the roller, and the belt will come loose. When putting the new belt, you need to insert the belt into the pin first and then put the other end of the belt onto the roller. Then pull the roller and put it back into its groove. Voila!
