Having problems with your Hoover Vacuums ?

I have a 20 yr old upright U4689-910 with a broken agitator belt. I have a replacement belt. I have removed the L shaped plate on the bottom of the vac. It is not clear to me how to replace the belt at this point.


Answers :

If it is like the older hoover models you need toDISCONNECT FROM MAINS FIRST then
lift out the roller with the brushes on it, grip firmly at both ends and pull away from body of hoover, loop the belt over it and push it back in. Make sure you loop belt over the pulley the correct way or the brushes will rotate in the wrong direction! (there should be a diagram to show that on the hoover)

I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way

Dyson dc07 The rotating brush on the bottom of my vacuum was filled with strings. I removed the brush by undoing all yellow plastic screws from plate. Removed all strings and replaced as best I could and it was hard to get the brush back in and the belt around it. I dont have my manual but it fits so it should be correct....? Right?

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there's two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it's a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

It is not clear how to access the front spool on a Eureka 'Boss - smartvac' 4870K vacuum cleaner, when replacing the belt. Trying to force the flimsy black plastic lever attached to the shiny silver spool where the front end of the belt appears as if it should go, would cause breakage.

Cracked On the bottom of my vacuum, the area around the belt housing is cracked. It looks as though the whole plastic bottom piece would have to be replaced just because of the crack.
