I am wondering if you have purchased the correct belt- there are two belts on your machine. Go to this site and have a look at the belts there. Also, if youno longer have your manual you can download one from this site with your MODEL # and it should have instructions on installing the correct belt. Good luck to you.

    if the belt is not properly fitted onit only the gear will move the belt is to control the speed of gear and run the unit.so fit it properly.its simple.

  • tech expert12 Aug 15, 2008

    the gear will continue moving till the belt is not attached properly on it.

  • tech expert12 Aug 15, 2008

    just ease out one end to put the band round on that gear(which you call wheel) Not so easy getting it back, and this is the only way of putting it all back together as it was before.

As I was vacuuming my vacuum cleaner stopped working


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Your Hoover Windtunnel may have stopped working for several reasons. First, make sure that your unit is properly plugged into an electrical outlet and make sure the electrical outlet is working correctly. Vacuum units, and other appliances, protect themselves from sudden electrical charges, ups and downs. Make sure the electrical fuse and breaker are on, if not reset breaker.

Some units may heat up and will automatically shut themselves down to prevent fires. Allow your unit to cool down for 30 minutes while the thermal protector is automatically reset. Overheating, may have been caused by a clogged hose, dirty filters, full bags or a roller brush that is not running properly. All these situations compromise the unit's air flow and make the unit work harder, making it to heat up.

To avoid these situations and to keep your unit running at it's maximum capacity, make sure to change filters regularly (recommended every 3-6 months), clean your brush roll from any tangled hair strands or debris monthly (roller brushes are recommended to be replaced at least yearly), and replace belts every 6 months.

You can purchase direct your replacement belts, bags, roller brush and filters from Crucial Vacuum with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

Hoover WindTunnel Self-Propelled V Belt


when you released the end to slide the new belt on it allows the tension roller to slide into the wrong position. Remove the top so that you can see the roller, at the left side of the roller mechanism there is a screw, loosen it enough to allow the roller to return to the correct position.
good luck

Replaced the belts on Hoover WindTunnel U6473-900/brush won't tur


There is a belt tensioner that maybe not contacting the belt when you tilt the handle back, It is either jammed and not moving up and down freely or it is broke. Look down below the belt, there should be a small wheel, that has to contact the belt.

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.

Brush won't spin


Yes it could be the belt or the "Bearing Assembly". I had the same problem with a vacuum I got from a friend. 1st I replace the belt,but when I turned the vacuum on I could smell something burning and then the belt broke in half. I then realized the brush roller was stuck in place and would not turn even with force applied. I later found out that 1 of the 2 Bearing Assembly's was worn out,when a Bearing Assembly is worn out the brush roller can not spin. So now it looks like I need to buy a whole new brush roller,unless I can find a place that sells the Bearing Assembly for part number 61445-1,which is a roller brush for a GE Wal Mart vacuum.
