SOURCE: Hoover U8147-900 WindTunnel V2 Bagless Upright has

Most bagless uprights are exposed to dirt being drawn through their motors and filtered afterwards. As a result when you see sparks the motor has generally suffered its final breath... Today's uprights often run with high RPM disposable motors where older bag type uprights used lower speed rebuildable motors.
So the short answer is you likely need an entire motor as a minimum. If the unit is a higher end model mover $200 , in great condition and less than 5 years old, take it to a Hoover service center and either buy and install a motor or have them rebuild it. But also consider this...
What most people don't realize is they spend more on high priced consumable filters for many cheap bagless vacs than they ever would spend on bags and in the end the bagless is dirty to handle and has a shorter life span. Mass merchants sell the vacs cheap because their profit is in the filters
Remember a vacuum is the hardest working appliance in your home in the toughest possible conditions
If you replace this vac do so at a pro shop and see the options they have. You will get good advice , you will spend a bit more with better results and less frustration because you will build a relationship .....and always know where to go for service.

How do you replace the beater bar belt on the hoover u 6626-900


It is not a "Beater Bar". Hoovers have brush rollers and are easy to replace. Turn the machine over and remove the 4 screws which hold the cover on, over the brush. Remove the brush roller. Slide the new roller through the small belt (self propelled models) and secure into slots (note: slots are different, match roller sides to correct slot.

Describe how to replace belt on hoover windtunnel bagless


If you turn the vacuum so the bottom is facing up you will see the base plate that covers the roller brush. There will be four screws (usually phillips head), remove the screws and the base plate will lift off. You now have access to the roller brush and belt. Lift the roller brush up and remove the old belt. Place one end of the new belt over the motor shaft and the other end over the roller brush and put the roller brush back in place. Now simply replace the base plate and you're done! This models requires Hoover belt # 38528033 (single) or Hoover belt #40201160 (2 pack). You can get this belt at www.vacbelts.com.

Belt replacement


No belt- it is motor driven. what happens to these if the rollers get stuck(by- say, a Lego® or something)  is the roller itself has an insert which will break, requiring roller replacement. 
simple fix, but costs a little more than a belt. remove two screws holding the roller cover, accessible by flipping the vac over. then figure out which roller is broken, and remove the 2 outer screws on that side. pull the outer bearing cup assembly straight out to remove the rollers.
I have found the rollers as cheap as $3.50 ea/ for generic replacements. Also I reckon any Vac shop would have them on hand.

Replacing a hoover windtunnel vacuum belt U8147-900


This has no belts, there are 4 small brush rolls, if the ends are bad and not turning then you will need to replace them. The newer ones have metal instead of plastic so are better. Should be able to buy the brush rolls at a local shop or from http://vacuumsuperstore.com/U8120.html
