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

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.

Brush roller not spinning properly

Yes there is a belt and yes it is easy to replace it. There are a couple of screws that hold the cover on and then you can just lift out the brush, get the new belt around the motor shaft and then around the brush. The new belt will need to be stretched tight but that is a good thing....
new belts can be purchased at many grocery stores or vacuum repair shops...

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

Brush roller on windtunnel won't spin

It sounds like you need to replace the actuator arm or the cable to it. Look for Hoover part 43143046 for a start. I've got a similar problem.

Roller Belt Keeps Slipping Off

You could try contacting Hoover for parts availability. If it's and older WindTunnel and Hoover no longer has the part, try eBay.
