Question about Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum
Unscrew the plate. check if there is any screws at the bottom, if none, exact little pressure to pull out the bottom cover. At this point you should be able to see the broken drive belt along with the two drive bars. Remove any debris from the vacuum head. Untangle any long threads wrapped around the beater bar. These only put more strain on a drive belt, so keep this area of your vacuum clean. Slip the new drive belt on the beater bar. Connect it with the drive shaft. You may need to use the screwdriver to stretch the belt enough to get it over the two shafts.
Make sure the beater bar turns freely with the new drive belt attached. Put the plate back over the beater bars.
