I have no owners manual and need to replace the belt on a Hoover powermax model #:U5242-930 can you help thanks Bab


I don't see this unit on the Hoover support site. However other Powermax vacuums come up in the search for manuals: http://www.hoover.com/CustomerService/manuals/Default.aspx .

Most of the units have very similar belt replacement procedures. First unplug the vacuum. Then press the handle release lever and place the handle in the low position. Next remove the hood by turning the two slots either side of the hood with a coin. Rotate the hood towards the front of the unit and remove it. Then remove the agitator brush roll and the old belt. Discard the old belt.

With the lettering to the outside, slide the new belt over the motor pulley. (The old belt should have been on the pulley. If the belt broke and isn't in place, look for it on the right as you look at the front of the vacuum above the agitator brush roller's position.) Slide the agitator brush roller through the belt and place the belt in the belt guide on the roller. Grasp the agitator and put it into position. Fit it into the rectangular slot on the left. Then pull it into position on the right side of the vacuum. Check if the agitator and the belt turn freely and that the belt isn't pinched between the agitator and the bottom of the unit. Replace the hood by aligning the tabs with the slots on the base. Then turn the coin slots to secure the hood.

I hope this helps.

The brush has stopped turning when used in the upright position


I have one too and I'm trying to fix it as I write this.I also have an older version and I've had no luck.I've taken evey screw out ,spayed tweeked and tried everything possible.my solution would be to stay away from Hoover steam spin scrubs.I'm going to invest in one with brushes like a vacuum.Those that are easily replaced as well as the drive for it be it a belt or a turbine like I've read this unit has

MY VACCUM WILL NOT PICK UP THE DIRT SO HOW CAN I FIX IT


There are two things that can cause an upright vacuum to stop working

A: Air Flow or Suction-Make sure that the air flow is not impeded by a clog, full bag, or dirty filter.
B: Agitation- Make sure that you have a good belt, the roller is engaged, and that the height adjustment is set appropriately. Most vacuums need a belt change about every six months whether it is broken or not.

You may want to ask a more specific question with your make and model number included.
Hope I could help

Good Luck

My Model is a U5465-900 - I need to replace the agitator housing.


I don't seem to be able to find a site with entire replacement parts list. Or a cross reference to the U5465-900 model. It has a 15" agitator. The housing has been "rubbed" through at one side of the agitator and is no longer capable of containing the agitator in the proper position.

Thanks


I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You can check your local vacuum dealer in you city or state and they sometimes will have a micro fiche or breakdown of your particular vacuum or you can contact the Hoover Factory Website listed below --- or check your owner’s manual for a parts breakdown or check the yellow pages in the city or state you live in

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
