Question about Hoover U8145-900 Savvy Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Belt type Ok, thank you for the help! I did have the top off, but did not know the taking the motor loose trick, thank you for that! Now I have a couple of more questions, and thank you so much for all of the help! I got a belt from sears, & the sales guy sold me an off brand belt. It looks just like the belt that broke, although do you have to force the motor back down into place? I think it may be the wrong belt? I have looked on the Hoover website & they do not even have parts listed for this vacuum? Is this the timing belt, or do you by chance know the model number? Thanks :)

The belt number is 91001028. The belt will be snug but not real tight, so the belt you got may not be the right one. Most repair shops for vacuums should have this belt in stock.

I had just changed the belt and I turned it on to see how it was working , and I noticed that it sounds like the motor is working hard


Take the belt off machine, try machine with the belt off, if motor sounds OK, try spinning the brush before putting belt on, if brush does not spin freely, see what is clogging it.
When brush spins freely, reassemble correctly and try.

It is making a racket when i turn it on. I took the brush off and cleaned it it is not the belt i don't know how to take the cover off the top front so i can look near the motor can you help please. ...


These units have two screws that hold the "hood" in place. With the belt/brush roll cover off look on the underside for the heads of these screws. Once these are removed the top should come off.

I can't remove nut from end of vacuum.


The nut is reverse threaded . If you hold the fan with one hand use a ratchet to loosen the nut, you will have good enough leverage to break it, but if you don't then here's a little trick....Take your vise grip pliers and clamp it to the belt end shft of the motor. Now with your worktable (or floor) brace the vise gripped motor shaft . with the ratchet, turn the nut to the right. Like you're tightening it. this should be sufficient enough torque to bust that nut. I hope I was able to help you , let me know. Thanks, Rene (the Vacuum Doctor)

I need help changing belt on my Eureka Optima


If you're not familiar with how the vacuum is put together, taking it apart can be a real pain. Thankfully, most of the screws on the unit are the same size and type. For the ones you need to remove, a #2 Phillips should do the trick.

Unplug the vacuum, and flip it over, flat on the ground.

Press the silver button on the neck where the roller head attaches to the body and pull the head off. This isn't completely necessary but it makes it easier to work on.

Remove the 12 screws holding the case together. There will be 2 smaller (I think) screws by where the head swivels. Keep track of those.

Once ALL the screws are removed, the case should be loose and pretty easy to remove.

Flip it back over and carefully move the top cover to the side.

If you're looking at the piece head on as if someone were vacuuming facing you, the belt side of the brushroll should be on your right.

Remove the far side (non belted side) of the brushroll first by lifting it straight up.

The belt should be slack enough to remove the belted side of the brushroll and replace the toothed belt.

When reinstalling the brushroll, stretch the belt a little and put that side back first. Trying to get the belt side in after doing the far end takes too much effort.

Make sure the belt is tracking straight by rotating the brushroll and adjusting the belt as needed.

Since it's all opened up you may want to give it a good cleaning too.

Reverse the rest of the steps to put it back together.

Good luck!

Noise


What does this noise sound like? If it's a squealing noise, chances are that it is a belt going bad. You can purchase a new belt at your local Sears, or probably even your local grocery/department store. The vacuum belt is easy to replace and inexpensive. Instructions for belt replacement are in the owner's manual, or sometime on the belt's package. Hope this helps... Please take a few seconds to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!

If it a Savvy, then it is the timing belt, part # 91001028. If this is a V2, then there is no belt.

Eureka Uno brush not spinning


There are 2 or 3 screws on the top to take out and the top cover will come off. Belt is #61120A U long life, brush roll if you need it is #62365-2. If the brushs look ok and the ends turn freely, then it is probably ok. The belt goes around the brush roll then up to the motor shaft.

Brush belt came off my Bissell ProHeat


take the bottom cover off the machine so you can see the brush that the belt drives, you have to take the brush out next. slip the belt on the brush then set the brush back in you should see where the belt hooks up to the motor, now heres the trick they are all different here some belts are put on where they are straight like a car it just loops both sides. put it on this way first if the belt is very loose when installed this way, it means you might have to twist it half a turn for it to be on right, you will be able to tell though. because if its loose it wont turn the brush. i think you can handle it.
