How do you take apart a Hoover brush n wash to replace the belt?

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
On a Hoover brushroll there are 2 types, wood and metal, and the metal can be washed with water and the wood should only be wiped off, knowing the name brand of the vacuum most of the vacuums the belt change is done by removing the bottom plate and exposing the belt, 1st hook the new belt around the brushroll and then use a screwdriver or similar with a bent hook on the end and then pull or hook the belt on to the motor pulley and then track the belt to make sure the belt stays on, then re-install the bottom plate and turn the vacuum on to test to see id the belt was installed correctly. The other is to look for 2 or 4 screws on the bottom and then remove the top cover and follow the instruction listed above without the bottom plate. A belt change should be done every 4 to 6 months on regular basics and to keep the belts in the refrigerator to keep them fresh.

That means that the belt is stretched and it is slipping on the motor shaft, that is why it is hot and smells like burning rubber. You need to replace the belt. Here is the correct belt you need:

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

Hoover Wind Tunnel V-Belt no longer turns brush


that is the correct belt what you dont see is a tension pulley that when the handle is released pushes on top of that belt giving it the tension it needs. try replacing the other belt, even if it isnt broken it could easily be stretched out ( all belts of that type should be replaced every year - even if you didnt use the machine at all ). if that doesnt work that tension pulley could be damaged you would need to take the bottom of the machine apart to fix that.

Steam vac hoover F7458900


There is no belt, the brush block is turned by a turbine. Check the brush block, make sure that the shaft that goes into the turbine isn't broke off, If ok, then replace the turbine, or take it apart and clean it out.

Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.

Take the brush block out, is the shaft that goes up into the turbine there, or is it broken off. If gone, then replace the brush block. If there, then probably the turbine isn't working, this is what drives the brushs. It may be just clogged up, you can remove the turbine, take it apart and clean it out real good and put it back together. If it works, then you are set, if not, then it will have to be replaced.
