Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Hoover legacy belt change can either be changed from the bottom of the vacuum by either taking out the screws, clips or levers, and then you can remove the bottom plate or the top cover, what ever the case might be. Then you can cut off the old belt and then guide the new belt onto the motor pulley by using a long nose pliers or a screwdriver; if it is hard to reach and then take the brushroll and slide it inside of the belt and then pull back until the brushroll will fit into the brushroll holder, then you can replace the top cover or the bottom plate and reverse the procedure that you did to change 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.

HOW TO mAKE BRUSHES SPIN


Check for broken belts, or belts that have been thrown off the pullys.
I use the websites that sell parts to see what is inside stuff, and download the users (owners) manual and read it.
Try Sears Parts Direct or the Parts Store (Google those names) for diagrams to see what belts or whatever it uses. If you can't understand the diagrams, find almost any 10-year-old. They seem to be incredibly clever, but then they have nothing else to do except try and figure stuff out.

Hoover wind tunnel the red light dirt finder stays on


There's a microphone inside the tube the dirt runs up. It listens for dirt coming up the tube. They just go bad and there's no making it better. You can either replace that entire assembly or ignore it. Fairly easy to replace. I'll include the part so you know what you're looking at.
Good luck! The Vac Dr.

Changing a belt


Take off the bottom plate, look in the bottom to see if there are any screw, could be 2 of them, then from the bottom there is a slot on each side of the top cover, using a flat screwdriver, insert blade into the slot and pry up to release the locking tabs. Belt # is 38528040. Put the bell over the brush roll, put belt thru opening and put atound the motor shaft, put back together.

Dirt finder


The sensor may be bad, or it may be coated over with dirt. Re,ove the hose at the back of the vacuum, the head of the sensor is down inside that opening, reach in there and clean it off and see it that corrects the problem, if not replace the sensor.

On the back, take the hose off, inside the duct you can see a disc,(it is on the bottom of the duct) it may be filmed over with dirt, that is the sensor, clean it off then try again. If it still comes on, then it may be bad or you have a clog in the hose or the dirt inlet by the brush roll.
