UNPLUG THE VACUM CLEANER FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET! OK, now you cannot sue me.
The plastic tabs on this machine can snap and break. Be gentle and try not to break anything.
Remove the roller guard on the bottom using a screwdriver where indicated to pry the retaining tabs.
Remove the upper shell of the motor housing using the same method on its retaining tabs.
Slide the belt off the motor shaft.
Remove the roller being sure to keep track of which way it came out so you can replace it in the right direction.
Remove the belt from the roller.
This is a good time to clean out the dust and debris especially from the roller and the motor's air vents (for cooling the motor).
Place the new belt on the roller.
Install roller in the correct direction.
Pry the new belt over the motor shaft. This will take some muscle and guts to stretch it.
Replace upper shell housing.
Replace roller guard.
Be ready to shut off immediately in case there is a problem.
Plug in and test.

I just replaced my hoover belt and it is too loose to make the brush spin. Is there an adjustment to tighten the belt


Greetings from GoVacuum,

The belt is going to be loose as long as the vacuum cleaner is in the upright posistion. If you have the vacuum cleaner with the handle locked in the upright setting, then the belt will be tight around the skinny belt. Once you release the handle of the vacuum cleaner, you can watch as the belt tightens over the roller brush. There are numerous problems with this particular model. We have recorded a very helpful video review of how to replace the belt, and do basic maintenace for this particular model. Hopefully this will help you figure out the correct installation, and other maintenance work you can do yourself.

Here's the video;


If this still does not fix the problem, and the brush is still not spinning, please feel free to email me at chris.jones (at) govacuum.com. I'm always more then happy to try and help you fix the vacuum.
