I figured out on my hoover upright that many of those models don't access the belt by removing the plate under the vacume. the housing top actually prys off (with the help of a flathead screwdriver). step on the handle release button and lay the handle down first so you have a little room to work with. good luck

Get a new belt, then remove the bottom plate. The belt goes around the brush roll and the motor shaft. If you don't see the motor shaft, then you will need to remove the top cover to get to it. The belt will stretch to go from the motor shaft to where the brush roll sits in. If this model has 2 belts, then the drive belt(flat) goes from the motor shaft to the bigger pulley close to the brush roll.

Hi, I just replaced my belt for my Hoover Upright Futura with replacement belt 38528040. Now it is making a very loud noise with a lot of vibration. What would be the cause? Could it be the new belt? It...


It is not likely to be a belt problem. I would remove the belt and brush assembly, turn the vacuum on, and see if it is still loud. If it is, the motor fan is broken and will need replacement. If it sounds normal, the problem is in the brush assembly. Examine the ends of the brush for damage or play in the bearings. The brush may need replacement ( part # 48414081 )

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.

How to change belt on Hoover DM6227T


Hi Diane
There are two options here; Go to the Hoover UK website and download the user manual (http://service.hoover.co.uk/manuals/Manuals.aspx?Section=6) and add in the DM6227 code and number without the T letter. The pdf downloadable (and free) user manual will upload to your computer.

Or follow this method:
There are two rear screws on the top of the hood of which you'll have to swing the handle all the way down to reveal both screws at the back of the top hood. Undo these screws and put them in a safe place. Then gently prise off the main control selector height dial and the top hood should be able to pop off easily. Then you'll main roller brush should be revealed as well as the broken belt.

Once the belt is removed, clean the brush roll of any threads or hairs that have stuck the bristles down. Then fit new belt, align the roller bar properly including the new drive belt and then refit the top hood back on, snap fitting down, two screws in and gently refit the control dial height adjuster back on making sure the front raised part of the dial knob is facing the Hoover.

Anything else don't hesitate to contact.

Hoover model u5146900 the belt drive is bare metal wears out the belt quickly is there a part that fits over the pin?


The belt drive shaft does not actually wear out the belt unless it has a burr on it, however frequent use does.It should be kept clean and polished with no residual dirt ir burnd rubber.
On a department store brand vac you should expect to change the belt every 3 months, broken or not as it stretches under normal use for best results. Remove and clean the end caps on this unit for longer belt life and use only genuine Hoover belts with matching part #.
For longer wear and tear, next time around consider a vac with a fibre embedded gear belt similar to the fan belt on your car.
A belt of this nature gives 100% performance at all times and therefore keeps yopur carpets much cleaner.

Bearing screeching?


Hello,
Yes, it could be a motor bearing. Another possibility is the fan could be broken. Remove the bottom plate from vacuum. Spin the belt motor pulley slowly and view the fan. You may have a plastic fan that has broken or something is keeping the fan from spinning. Here are links with illustrations to an online guide. (the links will say "belts" but it will show how to get to the fan). Click the one that best matches your vacuum.
Hope this helps.

Since the Steam Vac does not have any belts... the logical issue is Switch setting (Hi, Low, Off) on the base cover. The only other is dirt collection on the air intake for the brushes (unit uses air passing over plastic fan blades to spin the brushes). To clear the dirt problem, remove the clear plastic cover located just in front of the brush Switch. You can now use your finger nail (or an old tooth brush) to clean the filter screen located just below the Switch. Don't tear it, just gently remove the accumulated dust/hair.
Brushes should spin once you reassemble and power it up!!

My Hoover bagless vacuum starts to smell like something's burning


What does it smell like? If it smells like burnt anything-it could be that the fan is broken and lodged in the motor. You can see if the fan is good just by looking into it.

Trying to fix new belt to Hoover Turbo Power vacuum cleaner. Don't see how the belt becomes taut. Fitting it around the roller, there is nowhere to fit the belt to, it just sits loose.


I looked at the user instructions guide online and saw where the 'other end' of the belt should be fitted. It was extremely hard to fit but eventually managed it. Thanks for this solution site. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
