Vacuum cleaner belt
\015 I need to check to see if the belt is broken on my Hoover Wide Path Vacuum Cleaner, model # U5165-900. How do I go about checking this?\015\012Thanks!\015
Just take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll. The number of the belt is 38528040. Check the brush roll to make sure the ends turn freely, if not the replace it.
The best way to check to see if you need a belt on your vacuum cleaner of any brand is to flip it over and turn the brush on put on a glove that you would use for gardening or snow shoveling and press your palm against the brush if you can stop it with any amount of pressure the belt is bad and needs to be replaced. Just because the belt isn't broken doesn't mean it isn't stretched out and a streched out belt won't spin the brush on carpeting therfore not cleaning properly. Also it is a good idea once you remove the brush to make sure it spins freely hair and strings can collect in the bearings and freeze up the brush also burning up belts.

I accidently ran over a sock while vacuuming underneath my bed and the belt broke (brush does not rotate now). I've always changed the belts in my vacuum cleaners, but the Healthy Home manual states that I need to bring it into a shop so that a professional repairman can change it. I find this ridiculous and now wish that I never bought it. How do I change the belt myself? PS I have already bought a replacement belt.

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use.

My hoover Wind Tunnel vacuum cleaner's motor spindle keeps overheating. Because of the high temperature, it keeps burning through belts (the big, wide ones). I have taken it in to the vacuum repair shop about three times now, and the problem has never been fixed. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this or should I just buy a new vacuum?
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. ... Hoover U5396-900 Turbo Power Vacuum

We have a Hoover upright vacuum cleaner, model Core 7. There is a switch that turns on and off the brush drive. This operates via a cam with a bearing putting pressure on the final drive belt to engage the brush head. My brush head is not turning and with the lever set to engage the drive there is still considerable slack in the final drive belt. There appears to be only a bearing deflecting the belt, should there be a pully or other device mounted on this bearing? There is so much slack a
Yes, there should have been a white plastic sprocket on top of the bearing - in its channel the belt would sit. Unfortunately no parts are available for this unit that can be bought retail - only available by order to dealer repair shops.\012\012\012 ... Hoover Vacuums
