Appears that you may have all the belts in place but the beater brush is jammed and it can't spin.. the jam may also be blocking the vacuum port so that you don't get any suction to that area. I suggest you unplug the vac, then open the base section to gain access to the beater bar and check to make sure the brush can spin freely.. also check that the drive belt is properly seated on the shaft and that there are no obstructions in the vacuum port.. hope this helps you..

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.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

My bissell helix cleanview vacuums brush doesn't spin


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly. If the belt is missing and you need to replace, I would still do the cleaning on the beater brush. It should move freely when you turn it by hand.

Brushes won't turn


Look at the ends of your brushes were the brush piece attaches to the vacuum. Sometimes they are broken or just stuck. good luck

Brush not moving in Bissell pro-heat


if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

Bissell proheat self propelled series 7950 won't spray water and pump belt isn't broken.


I'm having the same issue and it was the pump. The metal drive gear sheared off of the plastic pump shaft. I JB Welded it back together, now I just need a schematic to reassemble the cleaner.

Bissell model 8910 carpet cleaner


Depending on which style you have, it may have a opening on the right side as you look at the front of the machine. If not you may need to remove the cover. If it does it says "belt access" and has two 1/8" (about) slots in the cover. with a small screw driver or something similar insert tool into slot and gently pry(if you are looking from the side) the left slot up and towards the right and the right slot up and to the left. It will slowly (or quickly depending on how hard you have to push) pop up and you can slide it off and see the pump. I think it is easier to just remove the 4 screws that hold the pump in place so you can replace both belts at the same time and not struggle with having to stretch the new belts. The last time I did this the Sprocket(small metal peice with teeth that turns the brushes) had broken off. I cleaned and dried everything and used 30 second epoxy to glue the sprocket back on and it works fine lasts a long time. Once you have removed the 4 screws holding the pump you can use a flashlight and screwdriver, knitting needle, pen etc. to hook the belt from the brush on to the pump shaft(sprocket) very easy. You may need to tilt and angle the pump a little to gt the belt over the lip on the sprocket. Like I did when I did this you will need to put the smooth belt on over the pump shaft first then put on the brush belt and screw the pump back into place (4 screws just snug because you can easily strip the plastic mounting holes) and put smooth belt on the electric motor shaft. you may need to stretch the belt a little because it has no gears it is just friction that turns the pump. Clean and dry everything this will make this repair last longer. If you will take a few minutes after each use to clean at least around the belt area they will last a long time. You can even put a belt conditioner on them for added life. Have a wonderful day!!!!!
