The brush bearings wear out on these things. I know I replaced mine twice before buying new carpet. I've had it for 10 years,

SOURCE: brush will not turn

Possible Solution: I had the same problem with my Powerforce vacuum. Please take note that I AM NOT a vacuum cleaner repairman, nor have I played one on TV. Try taking your beater bar out, and if it looks similar to the one pictured (Model#203-1195), get a cresent wrench. Look at the end of the beater bar one will be squared on the sides to hold the shaft inside statonary. Take the wrench and adjust it to fit the nub on that end. Grab the bar in the center, and turn the end with the wrench. Mine popped and came loose, then it could be turned by hand. A little light oil allowed to run into the end cap, turn it up and spin it a few times to let the oil work down the inside and put it back on. Mine works fine for now. Good Luck!!

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.

If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.

Hi Janet. Thank you for asking this question. Your vacuum wasn't designed with a brush on/off switch so having the brush continually spin is normal for your vacuum.

Sorry to hear about the difficulty with the brush. If your brush does not turn by hand freely, then your brush needs to be replaced.

Here is a quick link to order a new brush:

The brushes on my Bissell 9200 have stop rotating. The microswitch near the wheel seems to be OK. How can I troubleshoot the problem?


If the belt is still OK and you can turn the brush by hand (make sure the power is off when you try) then there is only the drive motor and the power switch left in the circuit. Bissell's are very simple machines and you can easily remove the topc over with about 6 screws so you can get at the insides and spares are easily obtained.

Brushes not turning on 8920 2x Bissell


Brushes are switched on by lowering the handle which activates a micro-switch located inside the lower part of the machine. Vacuum must be running as well. The DC power for the brush motor comes from a Bridge rectifier located on the PC board located in the handle. I have drawings that might help you.

I assume you checked the belts to see if any cogs were stripped of of the belt. If ok, then I wuld suspect the brush roll motor, it is any inexpensive part and doesn't take much for it to fail. Undo the top so you can get to it and unhook the belt and see if it still shuts of, if it does, ten replace it, it it doesn't, then there is a problem with brush rolls or belts.
