    I stupidly removed the motor to change the belt. Belt is changed. I can't get motor back in. (I now know I didn't have to do that.) It appears the holes don't line up.

If you can't see the motor shaft then you will have to take the top cover off. Some have a couple of scres to remove from the bottom. Then is a slot on each side, from the bottom put a flat blade screwdrive in the slot and push out and up to release the locking tabs. The knob may pop off so watch for that coming off. Put the belt on the brush roll, then feed the belt up thru the opening and stretch it to go over the motor shaft. Put back together.

My Hoover Soft and Light Supreme upright vacuum has a model #U4264-930. The last two numbers in serial # are 05. I have no manual and need to change a burned out light bulb. Need to know two things:...


http://www.vacshopusa.com/pdf/hu4253930.pdf Use this link to download a pdfd scehmatic for your model. This link is the site I got it from. http://www.vacshopusa.com/elite_%26_elite_ii.htm You may find more info there. Just from looking at the schematic, I would guess the bulb cover would pop off (carefully) and see what type of bulb it is. Remove it, take it with you to buy a replacement.

What are the replacement filter bags letter...."Y"?


  1. The bags have different letters on them now for reasons like Hepa Filtration and Hypo Allergenic. Most of the upright style bag are interchangeable and same with the canisters. If you are really unsure of what to get bring the full one to the store with you or write down what it says on it as well as the type of machine with the serial Number.
  2. You could also check your manual and see if it tells you in there.
  3. If you do not posses the manual yopu can get one on line at WWW.pronto.com.
  4. I hope this helps and please vote for me on your way out. Thanks for choosing Fixya.com...have a nice day

I own a self-propelled Hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner (Model U6425-920). I do now have an owner's manual and was wondering how to clean the HEPA filter on this model (*this model uses a vacuum cleaner bag also).
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The best way to clean the HEPA filter is to take it outside and use a blower over the trash can and blow off the dust and dirt, or use things like an old paint brush and brush it off, or you can vacuum it off with another canister vacuum or shop vac if you have an extra one. For the best filtration is to replace it, there fore the air flow will catch most of the dust and dirt and then you would have to watch how fast it gets dirty and then do the maintenance.

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.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom of the vacuum and you need to either remove the bottom plate and once you have taken the screws, etc. out the top cover will come off. And then you can proceed with the removal and the install of the new belt. 1st you need to remove @ least one end of the Hoover brushroll and take of the old belt and slide on a new belt. Once the belt is on the pulley side of the brushroll; then re-install the brushroll. Make sure that the brush is spinning freely B4 you install the new belt, then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook to use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then take and roll the belt until it is tracking straight and then re-install the top cover and or the bottom plate, tighten down the screws, levers or clips. So, 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.

Posted by Maya B on Jun 04, 2008
I received this vacuum (Hoover Vacuum Elite/Allergen Filtration 12 Amp Motor) from a friend. After using it in a few rooms it started giving off this burnt odor and the motor starts to sound as if it's dying. What is wrong with it and how can I fix it? If I need to change a part, which one is it and where do I get it from?
I love the suction in this vacuum even though it can be very loud when the attachments are being used. You can email me at fine_wonder@yahoo.com Thanks very much! -Maya


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Vacuum Elite/Allergen Filtration 12 Amp Motor. It certainly sounds like a motor that is on its way to going out or burning out – you can replace the motor and you can get the part from your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area, either new or used to save money, or you can contact the cust serv dept @ Hoover. 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.
