Question about Vacuums
Generic problem for all Vacuums
I have an older Hoover
Posted by rrunner on Apr 24, 2008
I have an older Hoover vacuum and cannot figure out how to put the belt on?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
I am not sure how old your Hoover is but the old style the belt would change from the bottom and you would have to remove the bottom plate, lift out the brushroll and slide the belt onto the center of the brushroll, then look for the belt guide stamped right on the bottom of the vacuum and it will show you how to twist the belt in order for the belt to work, if the belt is on right you will have suction, if the belt is on wrong it will be blowing instead of having suction. If it is newer – you will have to remove the bottom plate or the top cover depending on the age of the vacuum and the belt will be on one side and the procedure is still the same – lift out the brushroll, slide the belt onto the brush, re-insert the brushroll into it’s position, then take a screwdriver or what I call a belt puller and stretch the belt onto the belt pulley then track / roll the belt and it will run straight and true. 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.
