    If no screws on the bottom, then they must be on the top cover. You
    didn't state brand or model number, so it is hard to tell what you have.

    It's a Hoover Concept One upright and there are no screws anywhere to dissemble the bottom.

    The model number is on a tag probably on the bottom. Some of the older Hoovers didn't use screws. The bottom plate has catches, usually 2 of them to undo to remove it. The top cover on some had tabs, there should be slots from the bottom edge that you can fit a flat blade screwdriver into, pry out and up to release them. If I had the model number, I might be able to look at a picture of it and can tell you better.

The roller has stopped rotating and I wanted to see if the belt needs changing. I cannot find out how to get to where the old belt is located.


Remove the bottom to find the belt. There is usually a spare in the compartment. I think there is 8 or 10 screws.

Beater bar Belt Removal from Upright Electrolux...
Posted by wrenn on Jul 14, 2008
I am trying to change the belt on an Electrolux Model 1717 Upright Vacuum and I am having difficulty disassembling the vacuum to remove the beater bar and belt.
Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. . Normally there are screws, clips or levers that would remove the bottom plate or if that does not work then the top cover will come off and that will expose the belt. Once that is off and the belt is exposed then cut off the old belt and then lift up the brushroll on the pulley end and install the new belt around the pulley end and re-install the brushroll. Then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bent right or left end to stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line and reverse you steps in the reinstall of the top cover or 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.

Belt is broken


Most upright vacuums will have 2 screws on the bottom of the vacuum. Remove both screws and snap off bottom cover to get inside of the head. Remove old / broken belt and slide agitator off from the head unit. Stretch new belt with both hands then place around the agitator and pulley coming out of the motor. Place the agitator back into place (there will be some resistance from the new belt, but that is common). Put back on the bottom cover and place back the screws. You should be all set then. Hopefully this helps.
