There are 2 screws near the front on the top cover. remove them and the top cover comes off and you can get to the belt. Also check the brush roll, make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also.

How to replace belt on hoover SH40060


You have to remove the roller to get to the belt' look at the face and bottom to find the screws that hold the plate that covers the roller. Take the plate off and look @ the roller, to see where the belt runs. then take the roller out, you should be able to see the pin shaft that comes from the motor,the belt goes around it and over the roller.Be patient putting it all back together,and don't over tighten the screws, they strip easily, Good luck!

Replace belt on hoover vacuum U4655


Turn the machine over and remove the 4 screws which hold the cover on the brush. Remove the cover and brush roller. Remove old belt. Slide new belt over the motor pulley, first. Then slide roller through new belt (if self propelled model, slide roller through the small belt, also) and slide brush roller into slots on housing (note: slots are different, match roller sides to correct slot.)

I ran the vacuum over throw rugs and the brush roller just stopped. I can't get the roller to work now... it won't even spin and the "brush" feature is in the ON position.


You've got a broken belt. Most Hoover Vacuums have a spare belt attached to the vacuum itself. Replacement is fairly easy and usually won't require tools. To replace your belt:
  1. Unplug the vacuum
  2. Locate clips on bottom of vacuum-Hoover uses clips that can be opened by hand.
  3. Lift up the plate that encloses the rollers
  4. Remove broken belt
  5. Remove roller from it's compartment
  6. Install replacement belt (hooking it around the motor and roller, using the roller for leverage to stretch out the belt until you have the roller in it's compartment.
  7. Replace cover
  8. Put clips back in place.

No power to brushes no result when brush switch activated


If you hear the brush moter running then the belt driving the roller has probably broken. It can be easily replaced by removing the brush plate underneath and pulling the roller out. Replacement belts are available on-line or may be available in hardware stores.Fit the new belt over the steel motor spindle first, then place the belt over the roller and insert the roller.
The belt will break if the roller gets jammed, so buy 2 belts and keep one as a spare.

Model 3590 roller not turning


There is a small rubber belt that connects to motor and the roller. It is common that this belt will break or wear and needs replacement. However, you must check the roller to see if it turns (spins ) freely. If it is stiff, then a new belt will be ruined in minutes. You must replace or clean the bearings at the ends of the roller (sometimes easy-sometimes hard). This roller must turn easy so the belt can do its job.
Replacement parts are easily available. I bought a roller with new bearings for a hoover about 4 months back----cost $13. and af course a new belt for $2.20. Goodluck< MAcgivor

How do I put a new belt on Hoover Concept One vaccume cleaner?


you most likely have to remove the cover over the roller, which has screws usually. then you will see the belt. the roller slips out replace the belt by putting it over the roller and a metal rod that is up under the cover you removed. this will be a hard job putting the roller bar back in the vacuum because the belt is so tight.

Belt replacement


No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something)  is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement. 
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.
