Question about Hoover Company Wind Tunnel U53019 Upright Vacuum
Posted by Anonymous on
These motors have a fuse incorporated in the field winding and it sounds like that blew. These motors sometimes overheat at the front bearing and the bearing will melt into the plastic housing. This will cause the fuse to blow. It sounds like that's your problem. You can remove the motor by removing the three screws on the bottom of the powerhead and then check the front bearing for any bubbling or blistering in the plastic housing. The shaft of the motor should turn easily.

I couldn't find your specific model but this may be similiar to another that you have to position the new belt around the agitator (beater bar) on the bottom of the vacuum, replace the cover, and then turn the vac over and remove the TOP cover to lift the new belt up and place it on the motor shaft/pulley. The new belt may require some effort to pull it over the pulley.
Hope this helps.

1. Remove the 4 screws holding the bottom plate.
2. remove roller and old belt
3. install new belt on motor spindle first and then on roller.
4. pull roller, stretching belt, set into roller cavity.
5. turn roller by hand to center belt.
6. reinstall bottom plate.& screws

SOURCE: Belt replacement
No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something) is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement.
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.
