Did you make sure the brush that the belt turns is free to move? Sometimes they get bound up and will not turn and as a result, the belts either burn or break. Remove the roller brush, clean the ends and remove any debris, lubricate the ends of the rollers where they are held by the stationary brackets and re-install with belt in correct position. Belt must be installed in the proper manner as well.

What belt fits the hoover preferred?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

In order to know the right belts to use for your Hoover cleaner, you would need to get either the model number of your unit or the part number of the belt. Hoover upright model number can be found either at the back or at the bottom of the unit while the part number can be found in the manual that came with your vacuum or you can do a quick search online. You may also contact Hoover (800) 944-9200 for further assistance.

You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Hoover replacement parts for your Hoover vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Why does my hoover belt keep snapping?


Hello! Your belt will need to be replaced about twice a year. If your belt is breaking within a couple uses of you changing it, you may not have the correct belt for your vacuum. Double check the owner's manual or Hoover.com to verify the belt number for your vacuum. Always replace the belt with a genuine Hoover belt. Hope this helped!

Hoover Ultra U6430-900 WindTunnel Bagged Upright Vacuum what belt # do I need both belt # please


The wider belt is # 38528035,( package # 40201170 ), and the v-belt is # 38528034, ( package # 40201200 ). The wide belt should be replaced twice as often as the v-belt.

Brushes don't spin


Hello :
try this please : switch the carpet/bare floor dial back & forth 5 times, ending on carpet. Tilt the handle back as if to vacuum upright & lay the vacuum on its side so it is resting on the side opposite the carpet/bare floor dial. Turn the vacuum on.
or try this also if the above suggestion didn't work :
Maybe the belt is broke. You will have to replace the belt before the roller can spin. You must have run over something in the carpeting like string or whatever to have it break. Happens all the time. Get several replacement belts to keep as spares while you're at it as nothing is worse then having to vacuum and no spare belts.
please rate !

Brush wont spin, belt is perfect


It sounds like the motor that spins the beater brush is burned out,If it is under a yr old it should be covered by the manufacturer warretee. Find a Hoover service center that does warrentee repairs.

Hoover elite, model no. u4671-930


in the front on the bottom you will see 2 slots put a small screwdriver in and push up on the clips in the slots and the bottom cover will come off .be careful not to break the clips.just push up on the clip and pull out on the cover at the same time.before you replace the belt clean the old rubber off the motor shaft first ,if you don't the new belt won't last very long

Tab that holds cleaner upright broken off


If your cleaner hasbeen purchased within the last year it should be under warranty. By the way you are describing this problem the back assembly is the best solution, and can be replaced by a warranty dealer. Go to the Hoover web site hoover.com to locate a dealer near you.
