The belt on my Hoover Elite Rewind UH71003 keeps coming off.


Those machines come half way across the world. The belt stretches while it waits. Buy a new belt for it and you'll be good as new.. actually better.
Here's a full length description of why.

Belt keeps coming off


Hi There,
Most likely 1 of 3 problems.
1. The belt is stretched and so is just slipping off
Solution change the belt
2. THe brush roller has siezed bearings so brush cant turn properly so belt is slipping off the shaft.
Solution - check see if roller turns easily by hand if not change the bearings.
3. THe motor has twisted in its body due to cracked housing or worn rubber seats.
Solution- Depending on your skill and age of vacuum replace the housing or the vacuum.

My belt keeps coming off on my tiller its a 24


There are several possibilities:
1. the belt is old and over stretched and needs to be replaced.
2. you have a bent shaft that causes the pulley to speen crooked.
3. The pulleys are not lined up. You should be able to adjust them by loosening them and sliding them back and forth on the shaft.

The belt keeps coming off


A belt will come off for several reasons.:

Wrong size or stretched... should be changed ever 3-6 months.

Misaligned pulley on brush or idler pulley on 2 belt unit

Misaligned motor.. this is rare

Put in a fresh matching genuine belt and keep a spare handy. Belts stretch and slip long before they break

Belt Keeps Coming Off


Replace the belt with afresh, proper sized one. Yours is stretched. It will be shiny on the underside. hoover belts are meant to fit snug. Check the bearings on the end of the brush roll to remove dirt and thread. The proper belt will need to be stretched into place using the brush for leverage. Likely that your low carpet is more dense causing enough drag to throw the stretched belt.

Belts


It is the flat belt that gets stretched and should be replaced at least every 6 months. The V belt wears down so it won't it right in the brush roll V. Maybe the belt tensioner wheel has a problem, sometimes they get hook up and won't engage the V belt. Check the brush roll also, if where the V belt rides in is covered up with belt, replace it. There is no adjustment, doesn't need it if everything is working the way it should.

I have a Hoover self-propelled Windtunnel, purchased 6-04. It gets light use. I have replaced the v belt 3 times, once under warranty, and it must be replaced again. It appears to be in very good condition, but is stretched too big. When I purchased 2 v belts a year ago, one was already too stretched, but when my Dad took it back, the salesman put it on another model and said it was fine (Dad never mentioned this to me). Is there a way to adjust the vacuum to hold the belt tighter? Do they really just stretch out like that normally? The flat belt has never been replaced and is in great condition.


Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. It is a good idea to change your flat belt every 4 to 6 months as a rule and the V belts @ least once a year and always use the genuine Hoover belts, there are generic or replacement belts out there but they have a tendency to stretch faster then the genuine belts. What you mentioned is not unheard of and another tip is to store any extra belts in a Ziploc bags in the refrigerator. Feel free to contact your local vac dealer if you have questions or call Hoover factory and ask for tech support. 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.
