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.

Bissell power steamer brushes will not turn


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller is not turning. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

The brush is not working when I turn the power on and the belt appears to be on and intact. How do I fix it?



This is actually a bad design by Bissell. Remove the Lift-Off portion of your vacuum cleaner. Down at the bottom, where the Lift-Off portion was sitting, you should see a small electrical plug part. What usually happens is this plug arc's, which causes it to burn the plug, and stop the power nozzle from spinning. If you see any black, or burning around this plug, take your vacuum back into Bissell, they will fix this, or give you a new vacuum for free. They don't even sell us their warranty stations this plug piece, you can only exchange it for a new vacuum.

If this is not burned, check the reset button for the brush, it's either located near the plug, or on the side of the brush portion of the vacuum.

I hope this was helpful to you.

I bought a Bissell 1695 power steamer from a friend without a manual with instructions nor the attachments. Can you help please??


Hello, I went to a local repair shop & was told that I may as well trash this Bissell 1695 model because very few parts were available & none were what I needed. Of course, I have to research things for myself & to try to keep from buying a new power steamer. Called Bissell Customer Service. CSR told me that the model was discontinued, none of the parts that I need are available & referred me to five authorized KY dealers (all of which are an hour or more driving time away). I am going to call all of them tomorrow & hope I can find a solution to one broken pivot arm that holds rotating brush roll. I found a helpful website that has a schematic and lists all parts that are available to order (& unavailable). There is also one service note regarding the parts that I need that says the entire base assembly with brush motor must be replaced because of a design change. Of course, it's not available either. Hope this helps some. The website is: hescoinc.com

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

Power brush on Green Bissell power steamer


Take off belt cover on the left side of the top cover, turn cleaner over, take out screw from red lock and remove, pull cap and brush roll out, unhook the cogged belt, then you can replace the pump thru that opening. Put belt over the pump pulley and stretched to go over the motor shaft. Then check the cogged belt and the cogged end of the pully to make sure that there are cogs, replace belt if there are cogss missing or belt is broke, if no cogs on the pulley, then you will have to replace the pump. Pulley only comes witht he pump.
