Hi Tessa. The Nano won't go completely flat but it does go back about 110 degrees. You may want to take a look at our Air™: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hoover-Windtunnel-Air-Multi-Cyclonic-Bagless-Upright-Vacuum-UH70400/14237595 or Air™ Steerable: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hoover-Bagless-WindTunnel-Air-Steerable-Upright-Vacuum-UH72400/22904051. Their main handles go pretty flat and are great and cleaning under the bed. Hope this helps,

It goes fairly flat, but won't go all the way under the average bed. The hose attachment is so easy, however, that it's a simple matter to just switch and use that for going 'way under the bed.

Contact Hoover. You should have the phone number in the owner's manual (you can probably google it too). I did see the part number in the manual as well.

I believe the part number is also on the vacuum itself. Look on the bottom part of the vacuum.

answer 1
I'm sure that is true, but my experience using the Nano is it picks up just as well. I have a 12amp vacuum also, and the Nano is just as good. The head is narrower, maybe that concentrates the flow in a smaller area which retains the velocity. It probably won't last as long, but I don't think any vacuum does these days. For the price all I care is it cleans well, which it does.

I don't know what the amps have to do with the power of the suction, I did read somewhere that there's little to no relation, though. What I know is that I had a much more expensive vacuum before this one and they both work equally well.

answer 1
If you have the owners manual look on page 11. If not unplug the vacuum, place on floor flat with nozzle base facing up. Remove the 5 screws. Pull & lift the guard off. Remove the brushroller. Remove old belt and replace with new belt. Slide the new belt onto the motor shaft, the new belt should be on the area of the brushroller without bristles. With the new belt in place pull & slide the brushroll into the nozzle making sure that the endcaps are in proper alignment, rotate the brushroll to assure that the belt is aligned. Reattach nozzle guard using the 5 screws you set aside only after the tabs and slots on vacuum and nozzle guard are in place.

It explains in the owners manual how to replace the belt. You have to turn the vacuum cleaner over, take out five screws to remove the plate covering the brushroll and belt. Be prepared to get frustrated because it's very difficult to tuck the belt back around the motorshaft.

answer 3
really easy. Remove the plate on the top of the blue base, near the button that says hardwood floors, so you can get to where the belt winds around a little metal finger piece. Slip the belt off and then remove the roller by lifting it straight out, which will release the belt completely. Replace new belt and reassemble

Pull up the user manual online. Just a tip - don't sprinkle your carpet with carpet freshener granules. After just 4 months this vacuum got clogged up and there was no suction. I tried taking it apart 4 times to get the white powder out, but it never worked right again. I had to by a another vacuum.

Call the customer service number on the manual that came with the vacuum--they should be able to tell you how to change it. If you didn't get one or cant' find your manual just google "Hoover Customer service" and you should be able to find a #)

Remove 4 screws under the vacuum, remove the cover, remove the roller, clean the roller up and make sure it turns freely, slide the belt over the roller, put the roller back in with the belt over it, stretch the belt so it fits over the mother shaft, spin the roller and check for any tight spots or belt alignment issues, if non, put back on cover, turn upside down, plug in Vacuum and turn on checking for proper roller operation, if correct, back to work!

Hi Breeze, just lay your Nano down, remove the screws around the nozzle guard, remove the old belt, loop the new belt around the metal motor shaft, place the other end around the brushroll, replace the nozzle guard and screws, and you're ready to go. Let us know if you need any more help!

You have to unscrew the bottom piece. Turn it upside down and unscrew all the screws and u can pull the black bottom piece out,then take out that oiece that turns and u will see the belt. But good luck on finding a belt. I cant find one

I believe amps doesn't necessarily correlate to suction power/cleaning quality. Amps is a measure of how much electricity/power is used by the unit...so although 12 amps uses more power, the 10 amps may clean just as well if not better than the 12 amps depending on how efficiently the cleaning unit is engineered.
