Hello,

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.

Take care.

How to install new belt? doughewines@yahoo.ca


First lay the vacuum on it's front side and remove the bottom plate covering the agitator. It is usually held in place with 2 tabs,although there may also be screws. The upper cover can be removed next. Pry it loose by inserting a screwdriver along the outer sides. There are usually small arrows molded into the base indicating the places where tabs hold the cover on. You may want to pull off the heigth knob on top of the cover first. Place the new belt ( #38528040), around the agitator, and push the belt through the opening in the base. Next the belt must be stretched around the motor shaft. This will require some strength, as the belt must be stretched a fair distance. It is best to use a strong screwdriver as a lever.

I have a Hoover Model #U6430-900, Self-propelled Ultra Wind Tunnel Upright- I am sure the actuator arm- for the self propelled function- has broken. My question is how do I remove the plastic cover on top...


Hi There,

Here's a step by step guide that will explain in detail how to remove the top cover on your Hoover. The repair was written for a different problem then one you're experiencing, but you can follow along step by step to see how you can remove the top cover.

If you haven't already purchased the actuator arm, here's a link for you to the part on Amazon
Hoover Windtunnel Self-Propelled Windtunnel Actuator Arm

Here's the repair guide:
Step 1. Make sure that the vacuum is unplugged. Turn the machine upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. I find the easiest way to do this is to put the brushes on top of a counter top or work bench with the handle of the vacuum resting on the floor. Remove the four screws that hold the bottom plate in place. Remove the bottom plate, both belts and then the roller brush from the machine:


391f9a0.jpg
Step 2. There are 3 screws that hold the top brush cover in place that need to be removed. On the right side the screw is down below the transmission to the right. There's also a screw in the agitator tray, in the middle that needs to be removed. NOTE: This small screw in the agitator tray is only present on some models, you's may or may not have this little screw, but all models will have all other screws circled. I have circled both screws that need to be removed:


a2c6df2.jpg
The screws on the left side that need to be removed are also circled. One screw holds the upper brush cover on, and the other two screws secure the hose in place. Remove all three screws as well as the transparent hose cover:


e00d104.jpg
Step 3. After all of these screws have been removed, there are two clips that are the last things holding the top brush cover onto the vacuum. Use a flat head screwdriver to push these clips off on both the left and right sides. The right side clip is near the pulley that the flat belt2_bing.gif rides on, and the left side clip is next to the internal hose.

Step 4. Once both of these clips have been pushed so the unhook from the lower agitator housing, remove the top cover.

Once you have removed the top cover, here's a link to a guide that will show you how to replace the actuator arm itself:

I hope that this information helped you fix your vacuum cleaner. If you have any follow up questions, or need clarification on something, please feel free to use the comment box here on the Fixya repair page, and I'll be happy to answer any of your questions.

If this was helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback. This is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community if an answer was helpful.

Thanks again,

How do you put a Hoover runabout belt on vacuum


I found this on another site and it worked for me. RonL

Looking at the brush, remove the two screws from the black plate holding the brush. There are two clips that holds this plate once you remove the screws. This should be easy to remove with a flat type screw driver. Now is the tricky part to remove the top cover of the vacuum so you can access the compartment to put the belt on. The whole top part of this vacuum comes off. If you look above the part where black plate was, there are two more clips on the top left and top right hand corner. These two hold one end of the top cover. It is not as simple as pushing the clip to one end to slide out. You have to find a gap between the edge of top cover and bottom structure(right next to each clip) and shove the flat screw driver in and push the top cover away from the bottom structure and push down the top cover. You will notice that there are invisible hinges between the two which locks in the top cover.

Do the same procedure for the bottom right and left edges(right next to each end of the brush) of the vacuum and separate the two(bottom structure and top cover) out using the flat type screw driver..

Hoover upright model u5095-930 belt change


I couldn't find your specific model but this may be similiar to another that you have to position the new belt around the agitator (beater bar) on the bottom of the vacuum, replace the cover, and then turn the vac over and remove the TOP cover to lift the new belt up and place it on the motor shaft/pulley. The new belt may require some effort to pull it over the pulley.

Hope this helps.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Usually there are screws, clips or levers on the bottom of the vacuum and you need to either remove the bottom plate and once you have taken the screws, etc. out the top cover will come off. And then you can proceed with the removal and the install of the new belt. 1st you need to remove @ least one end of the Hoover brushroll and take of the old belt and slide on a new belt. Once the belt is on the pulley side of the brushroll; then re-install the brushroll. Make sure that the brush is spinning freely B4 you install the new belt, then take a belt puller or a screwdriver with a left or right hand hook to use as a belt puller and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley, then take and roll the belt until it is tracking straight and then re-install the top cover and or the bottom plate, tighten down the screws, levers or clips. So, 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.

Need to change a belt on a hoover encore supreme upright vacuum


I'm more specialized in Kenmore vacuums, but I believe there should be 2 screws at the bottom of the vacuum. You will need to remove these 2 screws to be able to remove the bottom cover. Once the bottom cover is removed, you should be able to access the belt and agitator.

I figured it out! The key is removing the "head" that covers the headlight - use a flathead screwdriver to pop it off.....then the belt connects from the agitator to the motor pulley. Phew!
