How do I change the belt in an upright vacuum?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Well, I can try to tell you a how to for a generic vacuum, but we really need more information as per the brand name and model # in order to tell you the best way to change the belt on your current vacuum. Most vacuums have a removable bottom plate o which will release by screws, clamps or levers and the bottom plate should come off or the top cover will come off. Then the belt should be exposed. Then cut off the belt, lift up on the brushroll side where the pulley is and place the belt on the pulley, then reinstall the brushroll – now use a belt puller or screwdriver and pull / stretch the belt onto the motor pulley – then track the belt by rolling the belt in a straight line – if the install worked then reinstall the top cover and or the bottom plate. 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

Eureka Altima Bagless Upright Brush is not spinning


You probably just have a broken belt. The belt needs to be changed about every 6 months regardless. I believe yours takes a style EXT U(Extended life upright), or a regular Eureka "U" belt works fine too.

Changing the belt?


Take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll. The belt runs from the brush roll to the motor shaft. Get a new belt, it will strectch to go around both.

How to change the belt on a Hoover High Performance upright vacuum cleaner

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Most of the Hoover upright vacuums service from the bottom and to start remove the bottom plate, that should expose the belt – if this is the case, some Hoover’s might be self propelled, if not the self-propelled vacs have 2 belts and the non self propelled models have one belt – so remove the belt(s) and then lift up on the brushroll and slide the belt onto the belt pulley then take a screwdriver tool with a hook on the end and stretch the belt onto the motor shaft – once this has been done the track the belt(s) and it should straighten out and run straight, re-install the bottom plate, plug in and test. If you cannot get @ the belt from the bottom the look for 2 or 3 screws – remove the screws and the top cover will lift off and then follow the procedure mentioned above… Questions? Please feel free to contact your local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or contact the Hoover factory for more details.
