Question about Vacuums
I need to check to see if the belt is broken on my Hoover Wide Path Vacuum Cleaner, model # U5165-900. How do I go about checking this?
Just take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll. The number of the belt is 38528040. Check the brush roll to make sure the ends turn freely, if not the replace it.

The best way to check to see if you need a belt on your vacuum cleaner of any brand is to flip it over and turn the brush on put on a glove that you would use for gardening or snow shoveling and press your palm against the brush if you can stop it with any amount of pressure the belt is bad and needs to be replaced. Just because the belt isn't broken doesn't mean it isn't stretched out and a streched out belt won't spin the brush on carpeting therfore not cleaning properly. Also it is a good idea once you remove the brush to make sure it spins freely hair and strings can collect in the bearings and freeze up the brush also burning up belts. You can get belts bags and just about anything else for you vacuum at www.stevessewandvac.com
