In order to know the right belts to use for your Hoover cleaner, you would need to get either the model number of your unit or the part number of the belt. Hoover upright model number can be found either at the back or at the bottom of the unit while the part number can be found in the manual that came with your vacuum or you can do a quick search online. You may also contact Hoover (800) 944-9200 for further assistance.

I'm not sure about a 3 month old vac, I'd probably go the warranty route. However, for the older vacs thy start getting false positives. The sensor is simply a microphone hooked to a computer chip detecting sounds of dirt entering the bag.
To rig it to start working, you'll need to remove the tool accessory tray and elbow that enters the back of the vac, and attached to the bag. This will reveal the microphone at the elbow, and wire that runs into the bottom area of the vac. When on, a large amount of air comes from the bottom screw and area where the wires enter. My fix was to clean up the microphone contact points a little bit with a screwdriver, and then leave the vac running while putting in dampering in the hole at the bottom, and around the back of the elbow. Cotton balls and electrical tape at the bottom hole, and napkins around the outside of the elbow (wedged between the back of the vac assembly and elbow did the trick). The schematic for the vac is here: http<colon>//www<dot>vacsrus<dot>com/CartGenie/pg_U6485900<dot>asp Look for micrphone.
1) Get the actual model number of your Hoover. The information you gave is just what appears on the front of the unit, and that's not the model number. You will find the actual model number on a small tag at the rear of the vacuum near bottom, or on the bottom of the unit.
2) Take that model number to a local independent vacuum cleaner store (not a department / big box store, which will have very limited belt offerings), where they will set you up with a new one. Probably wouldn't hurt to call first just to make sure they carry them / have them in stock.
Can you verify the model number? However, based on your posted description, it sounds like the flat belt is either broken or fell off. to access the belts turn it over and remove the bottom plate (4 screws). the Flat belt will connect to the motor shaft in the back and the large black pulley.

I cannot figure out how to get to the inside pulley where the belt hooks. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Hoover legacy belt change can either be changed from the bottom of the vacuum by either taking out the screws, clips or levers, and then you can remove the bottom plate or the top cover, what ever the case might be. Then you can cut off the old belt and then guide the new belt onto the motor pulley by using a long nose pliers or a screwdriver; if it is hard to reach and then take the brushroll and slide it inside of the belt and then pull back until the brushroll will fit into the brushroll holder, then you can replace the top cover or the bottom plate and reverse the procedure that you did to change the belt. 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. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Remove the bottom plate, then use a flat blade, from the bottom edge of the top cover, pry out to release the tabs and the top cover will come off( there maybe 2 screws form the bottom to remove). Then you can replace the belt.
