Need to replace a belt on Hoover Model 5035-930 belt 38528-027 Also reattach bottom lift wheel (has clip that came out)


There are four retaining screws that hold the brush guard in place. Remove those screws and the guard comes right off the unit. After removing you will see the drive belt.Once you have taken off the old belt just give the new belt enough slack to get it onto the axle ( you'll probably need a flat head screw driver. However it shouldn't be that tight of a fit. Simle fix.
As for the height adjuster that is a common problem with those model vacuums. They just seem so break. I have an older unit myself, the piece you are referring to will continue to come apart or break no matter how many times its fixed.

I can't figure out how to change the belt on my hoover bagless Sprint upright. Please help.


1 set up vacume with bottom facing you , making it easy to deal with.
2 remove the 4 screws holding base plate on and carefully remove the base plate, on mine there is a small catch that must be released.
3the belt compartment is on the right, remove the old belt, it's about 1 and 1/4 wide.
4 You have to put the belt on the stainless steel motor spindle first, then work the belt over the plastic drive wheel, and spin it around a few time to ensure it's running on track ok.
5 Replace the base plate , click in the self catching clip last.
6 Replace the four screws and test the vacume.

Belt Stretched on my Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900


hi, In order to to replace the V belt the one that turns the brush, One must take off the bigger belt " drive belt" that goes over that hugh wheel towards the back. When a belt gets stretched they will not turn the brush very well. If you have bought replacement belts the bigger belt Drive comes 2 in a package. Then you have your little V belt that helps turn your roller brush over. Yes the belts don't last long on my hoover. For kpatr22101 When you rpelace that V belt it goes over the roller brush into a little groove on the brush and then over a plastic round wheel then you must put on that bigger drive belt that must fit over that hugh wheel towards back and smaller on in front. Yes it is hard to get on. the I hope this helps. Cindy G.

Hoover upright windtunnel isnt propelling itself anymore


If the V belt is loose with the handle down, then maybe the idler wheel under neath the belt isn't contacting the belt, may be jammed down, just push on it to see if it moves up and down. Belts don't last very long, you may want to replace both of them.
