Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum Cleaner

The rotating brush won't stay activated. I have checked the brush for debri (threads, etc) and everything is clear. Once the handle release pedal is depressed, the brush may come on for a few passes with the vacuum and then disengage (the brush switch remains on). If I apply some pressure to the upper handle, it appears to activate the brush for a slightly longer period of time. I have tried the trouble shooting tips in the user's guide to no avail.

I just fixed our bissell. If yours turns off in the up right position when working properly your problem may be the switch that activates that feature. Turn the vaccuum over unscrew the 5 torx screws from the bottom brush area. flip it back over and remove the plastic top cover. There is a blue switch on the right side above the wheel. It is held down by a screw. If that screw is loose it wont function properly.

The brush will not rotate. I thought this was a direct drive system.


Note: The brush will not rotate when the machine is locked in the upright position, because an internal micro-switch turns the brush motor off.

- Check the belt through the clear brush cover. If this appears damaged or broken, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have this replaced. If the belt is intact, please continue checking the following:
- Ensure both power switches are turned on when you check for brush rotation.
- Unplug the power cord and remove the handle completely. Slide handle back into the lower section of handle, ensuring the screw is in tight. If the handle is not aligned properly, this will affect the power of the brush motor.
- Look for debris wrapped around the brush (i.e. string, hair, fibers, etc.). When the machine is unplugged, cut away any visible hair, fibers or debris from the brush roller. This brush is NOT removable from the machine.
- If something has become lodged in the foot and the brush shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug this from the outlet. You can now remove the obstruction. The brush will automatically reset when the vacuum is plugged in and turned back on.

If you continue to experience difficulty with this, please take your machine to the following Service Center in your area. The warranty on this machine is five years.

The brushes on my new healthy home vacuum wont rotate when the machine is turned on how do i access the belt location


If you turn the vacuum over so you can see the brush roll, there is a brush cover that is held on by (4) screws. Remove those screws and the base plate cover will come off. With the base plate cover off you can access the roller brush an belt. If you need a replacement belt you can get it here:
