Belt keeps snapping

I have a Bissel Cleanview II. I go under the vacuum to replace the belt. I can remove the brush and get the new belt on. But it looks as the metal drive spindle on the motor just melts through the belt. Is plastic piece suppose to be over the metal spindle, or am I just putting it on wrong?

Check your brush. It is likely that the brush is broken and will not spin. Hold the brush by the end caps and spin the brush and if it will not spin freely that is your issue.

Why do the belts keep breaking


Hi there,

Well the problem happens due to the belt If the belt not installed correctly, the rubber belt will grate against one of the components in the roller brush housing. The friction of the belt against the housing produces a pungent burning odor. To correct this you need a right belt, each vacuum cleaner manufacturer produces specific belts for specific machines. An incompatible belt installed on the vacuum cleaner will cause the belt to break or burn.

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

The belt on my vacuum cleaner model 6596 bissel powerforce bagless turbo keeps breaking. As soon as I put on a new belt and start it up the belt snaps. It is the durabelt meant for this vacuum model....


I would guess you aren't centering the belt correctly, thus it's edge is caught between the brush and another solid object, causing the breakage.
When you get the belt on the the brush and the brush back in place, turn the brush a few times by hand to make sure it's not catching on anything. After you get the powerhead put back together, do this again. It's a common problem if the powerhead isn't assembled correctly.

Here's a video clip from the Bissell site demonstrating changing the belt.

I put a new belt on my vacuum and right away it broke


There may be a problem with the brush roller itself. When the belt is removed and you have the brush in your hand, make sure that you can turn it.

If the brush turns fine, what I suggest is put another belt on, and before you close it up, turn the brush with your fingers. The brush should turn. If not, and I have done this myself before too, the belt may have been caught under the brush and not able to turn at that point.

When you get it closed up again too, before plugging it in, give the brush another turn. Just make sure that it is not pinched by the lower housing too.

Good Luck,
Mark

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.

WHAT'S THE EASIEST WAY TO INSTALL BELT?? I KEEP BURNING BELTS.


First check to see if the brush rolls freely with no belt in place. If not remove the brush roll and clean and lube the end caps. If the caps are nylon try to gently pop them off to inspect underneath.
Clean the motor shaft with extra fine wet dry sandpaper, then install the belt around the shaft and onto the brush before engaging the brush in it`s socket. Now use the brush to leverage into place.Check again for free smooth rotation, then replace the cover plate

Changing the belt


It is quite easy. Just take off the bottom of the vacuum encasing the roller brush. It should snap off or you may have to unscrew some screws and lift the cover off. Then remove the roller and clean it while you have it out. Now put the new belt on the motor shaft or pulley and slip the brush into the belt. Then replace the roller brush pulling the belt tight. Replace the cover and clean house.

Bissel Cleanview II (bagless 12 amp)


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

What it sounds like is that your belt has either broken, or has been stretched to a point where the brushes won't spin. What you'll need to do is turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and turn on the vacuum. Are your brushes spinning at all? If your brushes are spinning, when you put the machine on the carpet, does the brush stop spinning, or slow down noticeably?

If either one of these happen, you'll need to replace the belt. Most Bissell uprights will use Bissell Style 7,9, and 10 belt (3 styles, 1 belt). The best way for you to find out what belt your machine takes, is to refer to your owners manual. You may also email me your model number, and I'd be happy to ship you the correct belt.

The instructions on how to replace the belt are also diagrammed and explained at the above link.
There is also a troubleshooting page on page 14.

Please email me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to answer any question you may come across.

Hi Pmob20,

 

Remove the brush and clean all the string or whatever may be trapped at the end edges of the brush.  This is usually the case with Bissel vacs, that string or fiber gets trapped at the ends of the brush assembly.
