How to replace geared belt on Hoover Savvy U8171
\015 I purchased a replacement geared belt for my wife's vacuum cleaner via an aftermarket vendor. Of course, it came with no instruction and now I can't figure out how to get it around the pulley. I have taken out all the screws I can see, but I can't figure out how to access the pulley. I checked the manual and the only geared belt help it gives is with the powered hand tool. Any ideas guys? Thanks for any help,- Tom\015
Tom, This one is tricky. First get the belt on the geared motor pully, and then insert the roller through it. You will have to roll the brush toward the body of the vac to have enough room. Patience is the best on this model.

I have an old Hoover vacuum model # U5035-930. The belt broke and I tried replacing the belt myself. I couldn't stretch the belt to attach it to the motor pully. It was belt # 38525-027 M6. Which I got from the previous owner. I took it to a vacuum repair place and he replaced it with belt # 38528-027 J4. I cannot find this belt anywhere.
Belts 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.

On our Hoover U6445-900 (Mach 6.9) we replaced the small belt that goes to beater brushes in front of unit. Upon starting, the Hoover quickly got hot and smoky. We shut it off and looked things over carefully, but the second try also resulted in friction heat on the belt. Now it appears the belt may have stretched due to heat and the brushes won't spin. Any ideas?

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks
