Turn the machine over so you can see the bottom. If you look carefully at the plate that covers the roller, at the back behind the brush opening on either side, there is a clip that is recessed and you can push it with a flat blade screwdriver as you lift the plate up. This will allow you to take the plate off and remove the roller. Put a new belt around the roller pulley and insert the other end of the belt through the opening in the roller housing of the machine and re-install the roller. once it is installed, rotate the roller by hand to make sure that the belt is not pinched. Replace the bottom plate and rotate the roller again. The belt is running between two guards and it is possible to pinch it and damage it. This is why you rotate the roller by hand, to ensure that it is not pinched.
Now, if you look at the back wheels, on the side of the machine where the hood meets the bottom, there is a clip on either side that you can pry on gently and this will release the back portion of the hood. To release the front portion of the hood, there are similar clips located at the back corners of the bottom plate. Basically, you are prying the hood away from the base of the machine and releasing it. Now, turn the machine over, (back on it's wheels) and lift the hood off the machine. The handle of the machine should be down for this. You will see the belt where it comes through the roller housing and you will have to grab it and pull HARD and stretch it around the motor shaft. Once it is attached, rotate the belt and roller by hand to make sure that everything turns easily. Replace the hood and press the sides gently. You should hear and feel the latch/clips snap into place. If your machine has a height adjustment, there will be an adjustment knob that will have come off when the hood was removed. Replace the knob and you are done.

I have same problem, somehow take top all apart, looks like allen screws holding bag container on, remove that, get to screws right underneath top shell, then get to motor pulley from above . be careful not to pull off motor pulley when wrapping other end of belt around brush underneath, or else you'd have to take top all apart again. Good luck.

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.

I followed the instructions that were supplied @ the FixYa site, to remove the hood. Removing the hood was the problem. Just follow the online users manual pages 22 thru 26. you must spread the hood by the rear wheels to remove. Thank You Very Much. Delano

How do you install a vacuum belt for Hoover soft and lite supreme????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Remove the bottom plate by removing the screws, clips or levers and then if you cannot get @ the belt from the bottom then the top cover should come of and then you can get @ the belt. Cut the old belt off and then lift up the side of the brushroll with the belt pulley, then slide the new belt onto the belt pulley and re-install the brushroll, then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt so that it is running in a straight line. Now, replace the bottom plate.

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.
