Flip the machine upside down and remove the four screws from the baseplate. Replacement should be fairly self-explanatory from there. If it's a self-propel model, note that the v-belt in the front WILL look loose normally, so it does not usually require replacement.
If you have a self propelled model, the belt you need ends in 035, if it's non self propelled it ends in 033.
Contact me if you need more assistance in changing the belt.

Bissell powerforce brush won't turn when powered


Hey, you may want to have check if the brush turns by hand without the belt in place. If the brush doesn't turn manually, you'll need to replace the brush.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website to assist you.

A smell like burning rubber comes out of the vents whenever it is used. It starts as soon as the vacuum is turned on. I've emptied the filter, but maybe I need a new one? I don't think the suction...


Hi sevillekathe...
The problem is that you have is that hair,strings,etc has gotten wrapped around the beater bar of the vacuum and it is trying to slow down the motor but the motor will not slow down so the smell you smell is the belt burning up because it is slippling and creating smoke and smell
You will need to remove the beater bar from the bottom of the machine and clean the hair,strings,etc from around the bearings on each end of the beater bar.
Also check your filter bag, check the hose going to the vacuum if you have one for blockages, and once you have the beater bar off check your belt condition and look for blockages going to the bag.

The brushes wont turn,but it has good suction for the hose


you have to remove the bottom cover to inspect the belt. Usually if the brush is jammed, you will smell an odor similar to burning rubber. In the absence of that smell, its likely the belt. Its easy to replace

Eureka 2961 BVZ no suction, burning smell


I have the same vacuum. The burning smell is letting you know that your belt is either broken or about to break. I have had mine for a year and have had to replace the belt 5 times. Now I have to replace the brush roller 'cause it broke under normal use. My next vacuum will be a Dyson Ball.

Vacuum smells like burning rubber when on, no suction, leaving black marks on carpet


Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!

No suction, burning smell, expells dust


If by "suction" you mean it's not picking up dirt and debris on carpet, odds are your belt needs replacement, and the belt has burned, causing the burning smell. Ensure that your brushroll spins free, and replace the belt. (Belts should be replaced in any vacuum with a rubber belt every 3-6 months, regardless of use.)

If you mean that you are not having any airflow at the end of the hose, you most likely have a clog in the main hose and the burning smell is caused by your motor overheating. Ensure that there is nothing blocking the hoses.

If you have suction in the hose, and your brushroll is turning, there may be a clog in the head area behind the brushroll. Look in the hose that your wand plugs into, and ensure that it is also clear.

Main Brush Failure


first check if the brush motor is turning before you spend money on a new brush roller and belt. remove the belt by unscrewing the screws holding the brush cover ( the part touching the floor ) and slip the belt of the rotor. turn the vacuum on, and the brush on while the vacuum is in a reclined position. if the motor is not moving, you need a new motor.

Smells like it is burning up when I use it!


You should unplug the machine, then remove the plate that covers the beater bar. Remove all debris from the beater bar, (strings, hair, etc.) and insure the belt is in proper position. If you have run it very long out of proper position, it may require replacement. Next before you put it back together remove any debis that may have collected in the intake behind the bar. You can also lubricate the bar with machine oil or WD-40.
