Question about Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Lift off won't **** up.

The top half shut off during vacuuming. It will not **** anything up but the rollers are still spinning. There is no burning smell. I did find a clog in the hose but no where else. I know that if it gets clogged it will shut off but now the top half will not come back on. Is there a reset button somewhere or did the vacuum die?

Why is the roller brush spinning half heartedly and making a hesitant whining noise. It's not really picking up anything.


May have a faulty wire or there could be something rapped around the spook at the end jamming it enough to strain the motor and slow the spinning

I replaced my Bissell vacuum cleaner belt with a Bissell belt. I ordered it from them so I know it's the right one. I replaced it and the roller won't spin and the belt smells like it burning.


Beckiande485:

You will need to unplug the vacuum from the wall, lay it down so you can see the bottom of the vacuum head and remove the bottom plate (foot plate) Probably philllips head screws. pull up on the roller (called the beater bar). The beater bar will come straight up. Disconnect the belt and check the fittings at the ends of the beater bar... I'll bet that they don't spin easily (The fittings have roller bearings in them, and the roller bearings get gunked up with hair, carpet fibers and dirt). Pull the end fittings off of the roller and remove all of the hair and carpet fibers off of the end of the beater bar and the fittings and out of the bearings. Check to make sure that the roller bearings spin freely. If they do not spin freely, put some rubbing alcohol in the bearing (you can pour it onto the bearing and spin the bearing manually until it spins freely, or you can use a spray bottle with alcohol in it as I do. Once the bearing spin freely, dry them out so no alcohol remains in the bearing, then a drop or two of light machine oil (3 in 1 oil will do) in each bearing and spin the bearing again to distribute the oil. Now would be a good time to check for any clogs in the vacuum head where the hose connects, and check the hose for clogs. Reassemble the beater bar and reinstall it in the vacuum with a new belt, reinstall the foot plate.

Your machine should run like new.

Motor runs, brush won't turn, burning rubber smell


Easy to fix. The burning rubber smell is hair in the roller against the belt! Congrats, you have a healthy vacuum, you are lucky! Unplug the vacuum, remove the screws that cover the belt and roller brush. If you are nervous, take pictures with a cell phone or digital camera as you go for re-assembly. ok, pull the long roller out of it's slot and out of the vacuum. cut all hair off the roller and carefully move the belt from side to side to do the same. If the belt slips off, it slips back on easily. If the area is too tight for fingers guide it back on with any long thin wooden object. You can squeeze the belt to narrow it and slide it back over the thin metal rod that spins it from the motor. Slide the roller through the belt and back into it's slots. If it won't slide back on, turn it a quarter turn. Repeat till it does slide back into place. Put the face plate back on-tighten screws, flip it over, plug itr in and it should work!

Vaccum not turning or sucking


Hello,

It definitely sounds like your belt is broken. If something gets vacuumed up into the brushes, and prevents the brushes from spinning, the motor will continue to try and spin the belt and the brush, but since the brushes can't spin, this will burn right through most belts.

Especially since you mentioned a sock being sucked up, and the roller brush not spinning, this is a tell tale sign of your belt needing replacing.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Hoover Windtunnel Replacement Belt, Non-Self Propelled, Hoover Part # 38528033
- Depending on how long the sock was stuck in the brush, you may need a new roller brush as well. The roller brush for your model is Hoover Part # 48414110. Here's a direct link for the roller brush for your vacuum on our website:
http://www.govacuum.com/generic-hoover-windtunnel-tempo-fusion-upright-12-inch-replacement-roller-brush-hoover-part-number-4.html

If you have the Hoover Tempo Widepath vacuum that you listed the repair under, then here's a direct link back to our website, govacuum dot com, to the exact belt for your Hoover Tempo:
http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar9.html

Now, once you have a new belt, this repair is pretty straight forward. I'll explain step by step what you'll need to do to change the belt.

Step 1. Make sure your vacuum cleaner is unplugged. The easiest way to change the belt in your vacuum is to turn the machine upside down, so the handle is on the ground holding it up, then lean the vacuum over a counter top or work bench.

Step 2. Remove the bottom plate of your vacuum cleaner. You'll see on the bottom of the vacuum 4 screws that are located on each corner of the brush, remove all 4 screws, and lift up on the bottom plate that covers the roller brush.

Step 3. After removing the bottom plate, you should now be able to access the roller brush completely, and you'll probably also notice that the belt on the right side of the roller brush is broken. You may just remove the broken belt completely and throw it away. Lift straight up on the roller brush itself to remove it from the vacuum.

Step 4. Test the roller brush. After something gets stuck in the brushes, and it causes the belt to burn, there's also a good possibility that your roller brush may need replacing as well. Also the roller brush will wear down over time, and the brushes will wear down as well, greatly reducing the cleaning ability of your vacuum. You'll want to test your roller brush, to ensure that it spins freely. If it doesn't, then as you install the new belt, it's possible it could also break immediately. To test the roller brush, remove it completely from the vacuum. Holding just the end caps of the bar with your fingertips, try to spin the brush in your hands using your thumbs. This is how it should look when you test your brush (the roller brush is to a different machine, but testing it will work the same):

3a76171.jpg
The roller brush should spin at least 3 or 4 times in your hands on each spin. If the brush will not spin at all, or you feel some resistance when spinning it, then you'll probably want to go ahead and replace the roller brush as well at this point.

Step 5. Once you have your new belt, and new roller brush (if needed), it's time to install them. First wrap one side of the belt over the metal motor pulley in the back of the vacuum, opposite the roller brush. Now after you have one side of the belt wrapped around this metal pin, put the roller brush through the other end of the belt. Using the roller brush as leverage, stretch the belt with the roller brush inside of it back into the roller brush tray. You'll notice that on the left bearing cap on the end of the roller brush, there's a little rectangular shaped notch. Make sure that the rectangular notch is vertical, and slide this end into the agitator housing first, then fit the other side (circular notch) into the housing. With a little bit of elbow grease, you'll be able to stretch the brush with the belt back into place.

Step 6. Test the belt and the brush before putting the bottom plate back on. To make sure that belt and brush are properly installed, pull the belt forward towards the brush, and make sure that the brush spins while you're pulling the belt. If the brush does not spin, then either the belt is pinched underneath of the roller brush, or the brush is bad / installed incorrectly. Make sure that the brush spins freely before reinstalling the bottom the plate, otherwise the belt will burn and break again as soon as you turn on the vacuum.

Step 7. Reinstall the bottom plate, and screw down the four screws. Now you can turn the vacuum on, and make sure that the brush is spinning. If the brush is not spinning, repeat the steps above to make sure that the belt and brush were put in correctly.

That should fix your problem. Ideally you should change your belt at least once a year. Even if the belt doesn't break, it will stretch out. When the belt is stretched out, it will not pick up as well as a new belt will.

Beaterbar will not turn and very loud grinding


Greetings,

When the Dyson DC07 makes that horrible grinding noise, there's really only one of two things that can be wrong. I have taken a few pictures to help you try and diagnosis the problem.

The grinding noise is made by the machines clutch mechanism. The clutch is what stops the roller brush from spinning when you change the vacuum from carpets to bare floors. The grinding noise is the clutch slipping, and not being to able to turn the belt. In most vacuums when the belt can not spin freely it will cause the belt to burn or to break. On Dyson's, the clutch mechanism prevents the belt from burning or breaking if you were to get something stuck in the brushes such as a towel underneath of a bad, or tassles on an oriental rug.

So when you hear this grinding noise, only two parts could be bad, the actual clutch mechanism itself, or the roller brush. I'll gladly help you diagnosis, and give you instructions on how to fix your Dyson.

Step 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. Then turn the vacuum upside down so that the brushes are facing up. It's easiest if you put the head of the vacuum on top of a bench, or counter top. This is how the vacuum should look:


b45ef25.jpg
Step 2. You see on the bottom of the vacuum 3 plastic screws that are usually the same color as the vacuum cleaner. If you're vacuum is purple, the screws will also be purple. Use a flat head screwdriver, and turn each of the 3 screws a half of a turn, counter clockwise to loosen then. After each screw has been turned (you don't need to remove the comletely, just a half of a turn is all), simply pull upwards on the bottom plate to remove it.


13bda0c.jpg
Step 3. You should now be able to see the roller brush exposed. You'll now need to remove the roller brush. This will take some patience, and some work in order to get this brush out of the vacuum. There is a special tool that has been designed to help you get the brush out easier. I would try getting the brush out first before buying this special tool. The easiest way is to use a flat head screw driver and pry the belt up while pulling up and out on the brush. With some patience and some manuvering, you'll be able to get the brush out of the vacuum. Here's where you should put the flat head screw driver on the brush:


9665ae3.jpg
Step 4. Once you get the belt out of the vacuum cleaner, it's time to test it. Use your finger tips to hold just the end caps on the very end of the roller brush. While holding just the end caps, use your thumbs to try and spin the roller brush. Does the brush spin freely? It should rotate completely several times on each spin. If the brush doesn't spin, or you feel some kind of resistance to the brush spinning, then this indicates that your roller brush has gone bad. Here's a picture of how to test the brush:


3a76171.jpg
If the roller brush went bad, then you'll need to purchase Genuine Dyson DC-07 Roller Brush for Models That Use a Clutch Part # 904174, then reinstall the new roller brush into the vacuum when you get it.

If the brush however was able to spin freely, and it span multiple times on each spin, this indicates a little more serious problem of the clutch itself has gone bad. The clutch replacement repair is a much longer, more challenging repair to do. I posted a video on how to replace the clutch below so that you may follow step by step instructions on how to change it. It was really helpful for me the first time I did this repair.


I hope that this was able to at least diagnose the problem for you. That horrible grinding noise can only be one of those two problems.

The vacuum cleaning brush is not spending


Yes belt probably broken. Also the brush roller heats up on the ends, causing the plastic end cap nearest the belt to melt/weld to the end. It's supposed to spin freely. Also 2 bearings inside tend to become sticky, probably from heat. Next thing you know, the brush roller is seized and will not turn. Probably the whole reason the belt breaks. New belt & new brush roller, 30-35 bucks. It will happen again. Now you've spent almost half what it costs new. Lose the junk. 2 years for a cheap vacuum is the normal life span anyhow.

Bissell lift off, brush won't move smell burning rubber belt fine


OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck

Vacuum roller stops at half tilt.


You need a new belt. Belts will stretch to the point that they won't turn the brush roll under load, they will just slip. Check the brush when you change the belt to make sure the ends turn easily, if not, then replace it also.

Brush won't spin


Yes it could be the belt or the "Bearing Assembly". I had the same problem with a vacuum I got from a friend. 1st I replace the belt,but when I turned the vacuum on I could smell something burning and then the belt broke in half. I then realized the brush roller was stuck in place and would not turn even with force applied. I later found out that 1 of the 2 Bearing Assembly's was worn out,when a Bearing Assembly is worn out the brush roller can not spin. So now it looks like I need to buy a whole new brush roller,unless I can find a place that sells the Bearing Assembly for part number 61445-1,which is a roller brush for a GE Wal Mart vacuum.

Need help with my Hoover Savvy U8172-900 -- agitator does not spin when on


You probably jammed the roller brush and the gears on the motor stripped the teeth out of the drive belt.  You have to take the bottom and the top covers off the lower unit to replace the belt.  There is a hidden screw that keeps you from taking off the top, thus creates work for authorized Hoover repair shops.  You'll find that screw under the round red label in the center of the top of the lower section.  Peel it up and there is the screw.
