How two tighten belt on wide path foldaway vac

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
There really is no way to tighten the belt, the belt does need to be changed every 4 to 6 months as recommended by the factory manufacturer and to store any extra belts in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator to keep them fresh. Your belt has stretched and therefore is not cleaning as well as it should, 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. I believe the Widepath is made by the Hoover Co and the phone # and website are listed below if I am correct.

Thanks, Don – The Vac Man

Where to purchase belts


Independent sewing and vacuum, or sew & vac stores, typically carry a wide selection of belts. Be sure to know your model number of your vacuum, even if you have the old belt, as they stretch considerably and can be difficult to match an old belt with a new one.

Spray path is too wide. Is there a deflector available


I had the same problem with my proheat. The water would spray a wide path out the sides. I think it must be a defect as I have replaced my unit due to another problem. I purchased the Bissell machine without the heater and the nozzle is fine.

When vacuuming hardwood floor, hair gathers on brush and never sucks into vacuum. I spend most of my time cleaning off brushes. How do I clean hardwood floor with dog hairs.


1. Broom and dust pan, then mop
2. Wet dry vac with wide non-brush attachment
3. Here's a link to a vacuum professing to clean pet hairs well

4. Try to find a wide attachment for the hose that has no brush, maybe something from a wet dry vac.

5. Take your dog outside and brush every day. It helps, but no matter what you do, you will have pet hair if you have an indoor pet.

6. Go to the source. See if your dog will be vacuumed. Half serious on this one.


Good luck!

I just bought a foldaway hoover with wide path. I plugged it in and started to vacuum and dust flew everywhere. Walmart would not give me my money back so they gave me another hoover foldaway with the wide...


Take to Walmart, plug it in and start to vacuum THEIR floors!
Try removing the dust container and look for anything blocking airflow including the HEPA filter. Make sure the dust cup has a seal where it joins the vacuum. The fix is probably simple, but it shouldn't be up to you to do so!

Our vacum isn't picking up @ all.we did have some thread around the brushes, about an inch wide. it has an odor like it is getting hot. the vacumn is about 1-1/2 yrs old. we need help. thanks BETTY COX.


Hi, The most likely cause would be a blockage. If you remove vac hose, does it **** on your hand? secondly, with the vac unplugged, Can you turn the brush reasonably freely ? Is the drive belt on?

Kirby Ultimate won't clean carpet


when you install the hose connector it trips a switch that switches the vac motor into high speed because the vac path is longer using the hose. check the belt after you remove the front. make sure the direction of rotation is in the direction of belt travel stamped in the impeller. try adjusting the head height

Don't have one yet, but your problem might have solved mine. Bought this cleaner used and now will go to vacuum store to buy spring. Water just pouring out like a faucet.
