Question about Bissell Vacuums
The belt side of the brush fits into a groove that doesn't allow it to spin. I never noticed because it has worked great until recently. I thought it was the belt but it won't even spin by hand when in place????

if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

- Remove the access panel, which is on the bottom of the machine. There are 4 tabs to lift on the access panel to remove. Start with tab 1 then 2-4 tabs.
- Check the brush, and belt for any damage. Clean off any debris on the brush.
-The belt may not be broken but may show signs of wear. If belt is broken or shows signs of wear, replace belt.

Most likely your brush needs to be removed and cleaned.
Clean all debris that might be in the bristles of the brush. You will see a holder for the brush on each end that holds it into the frame of the vacuum. The two holders should turn freely. If they do not, spray a bit of WD40 between the brush and the holders and rotate the holders around the brush.
Doing this will clear up the most common occurring cause of the problem you are facing.
Good luck and feel free to contact me if you find this does not solve your problem.

Remove the beater brush assy & remove the
shaft & brgs that go through it 7 clean out the
hair,fuss ect,so it will turn
You need to take your vacuum apart once a year or more
to clean things so they continue to work

Make sure all the pulleys the belt attaches to are spinning properly, if one is stuck or not spinning fast enough that will easily generate enough friction to melt the belt each time you replace it. Might need to replace other parts, or clean out more than just the brushes.
