Question about Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum
I've made sure that the filters, hoses, brushes are all clear of dirt and clogs. The motor spindle is indeed spinning. I put on a brand new (properly sized) belt on, and within one minute the belt began smoking and eventually broke due to the heat from the spindle. I unfortunately know that it's very hot due to touching it. I removed the cover to the motor to inspect the carbon brushes, which don't seem to be worn down. I did observe some white and yellow sparks between the copper rotator and the carbon brushes upon power-up, but not as bad as many youtube videos show as motor arcing. Is the motor just overheating? Could it be lack of airflow through the filters?

SOURCE: Brush is not rotating.
Turn the vac over, remove the access plate, covering the brush roll, 2 to 4 screws. Brush roll part number is 2032032if you need it, belt is a Bissell Style 7. While you have the brush roll off, check in dirt inlet to see if it is clogged, also check the hose to see if it is clogged. You won't feel suction at the bag tube, it has to have a bag on it and the lid closed before it will create suction.

Most likely the brush motor is bad and not turning, part #2036757, would sell for around $23. To get to it, start taking out screws on the top cover, that motor is under the that top access cover.

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.
