How do I get to my belt?????

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Sorry…I would need to know more information as to what brand name & model # in order to let you know how and where to get to and change your belt. Usually the belt is changed from the bottom by removing screws r clips and then you can get @ the belt from the bottom or the top cover will come off in order to get to the belt. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

I need to replace the belt. Have the belt and the vacuum bottom off. What do I attach the belt too?


This unit has 2 belts. The V-belt on the brush usually doesn't cause problems. The larger flat belt requires regular replacement ( belt # 38528-035 ). The belt is first placed around the motor shaft toward the rear of the machine, and then around the large pulley. You must have strong fingers to stretch the belt over the drive pulley. Start the belt at the top of the pulley, and try to "roll " it around the pulley a little at a time, holding the belt firmly around the pulley as you go.

How do I replace the drive belt in the hoover u6401?


Remove the plate from the vacuum's underside. You will see fourscrews or two clips that attach the plate to the vacuum. Removingthe plate will give you access to where the belts are running. Remove the old belts and replace with new belts. The hoover self-propelled models use two different belts. One is a flat belt Hoover #38528035 and the other is a V belt Hoover #38528034. You can find these belts at www.vacbelts.com on these pages:

MY VACUUM IS NOT PICKING UP


Hi This is quite complicated but I'll try and simplify this for you:
If this is a Panasonic upright then there are two drive belts as you know. Once you take off the sole plate (where the beater bar is) by undoing screws and the beater bar is looking at you, you would have to take off the smaller belt motor pulley first before putting on a new larger drive belt. If the smaller belt is still intact and you only need to replace the larger belt, you'll still have to take off both belts to put on the new drive belt.
Motor pulley belt has to be taken off first then the old drive belt, then grasp the beater and slide on new larger drive belt before having to attach the motor pulley belt and then the larger belt onto the motor pulley. Once all belts have been attached ensure that the beater bar is pushed in correctly before you screw the sole plate back on.

Belt Stretched on my Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900


hi, In order to to replace the V belt the one that turns the brush, One must take off the bigger belt " drive belt" that goes over that hugh wheel towards the back. When a belt gets stretched they will not turn the brush very well. If you have bought replacement belts the bigger belt Drive comes 2 in a package. Then you have your little V belt that helps turn your roller brush over. Yes the belts don't last long on my hoover. For kpatr22101 When you rpelace that V belt it goes over the roller brush into a little groove on the brush and then over a plastic round wheel then you must put on that bigger drive belt that must fit over that hugh wheel towards back and smaller on in front. Yes it is hard to get on. the I hope this helps. Cindy G.

BELT TO THE BRUSH SEEMS TOO LOOSE EVEN WHEN REPLACED


Hoover U6437-900 U6439-900 Upright
LOOSE BELT. THE BELT IS STILL LOOSE EVEN AFTER REPLACING

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The reason it seems like the belt is too big is probable correct, you may have the wrong size belt for your vacuum, use genuine belts – your particular model is a self propelled model and takes two (2) belts and they should stretch on very tightly and snug and it is smart to use the genuine belt package for the model that you have and we Recommended the belt change for flat belt(s) are 4 to 6 months for better cleaning
They should be tight on the belt pulleys in order to do the best cleaning – use genuine belts
