Question about Hoover Vacuums
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.
