Hi In the UK we have similar machines but they are made by Vax. If you can't source the correct user manual from Hoover.com consider the following - it is a free download.

The Vax Mach 5 and Hoover model you have are the same other than the name. Dont forget to rate, thanks.

How to replace the belt on bissell healthy home vacumn


I think this is a terrible answer.. but after researching everywhere on how to change the belt, most answers were to look up the owners manual. So I looked it up online. this is all it has on changing the belt:
"Belt maintenance
The brush belt is designed to last the useful life of the cleaner when used according to all
instructions in the user guide under normal household conditions. If you feel that it needs to
be checked or replaced, call BISSELL Consumer Services or visit the website to locate an authorized service center. Do not attempt to disassemble the vacuum foot to change the belt."

Frustrating! Good luck!

MY Vacumn seems as though it is not picking anything up. It is also making more noise than usual. I cleaned both the filters and looked to see if something was clogged. Maybe I am missing something. ...


Well check the entire system for dust blocking the air. If it's not in guarantee anymore try checking the main fan, it could be missing some parts. Also, check how much air is going out the vacuum

My Kenmore Progressive vacumn motor turns off and on while vacumning. I don't know if I should take it for repair, purchase a new one or find someone who can do easy repairs (family member).


Turn on the vacuum but don't move it--just start at the plug end of the cord, bend and pull gently on the cord, but hold the plug in the socket. Work along the cord while listening to the motor for cutoff. When you get to the internal break in the cord, any bending or pulling will immediately start and stop the motor. If this occurs near either end of the cord, it can be cut off shorter and a replacement plug put on (if on that end). If it is the vacuum end, the machine needs to be disassembled part way to reattach the cord. If the break is near the center of the cord, just replace the entire cord. Good luck!

Brush will not turn


The most common problem is the handle isn't screwed in tight enough when the machine was assembled. Try tightening it down all the was and the electrical connections will then seat properly.

Fantom twister wont work light is on


When you say, "just stopped", did the MOTOR stop operating and there's no sound from it at all? Or, is the motor still working or sounds like it does, and it stopped vacumning?

If the MOTOR stopped, most likely there is a short somewhere in the connection at the motor. Think 'repair shop'.
If the motor still runs and there's no VACUMN ACTION, think Roller Brush which operates by virtue of a rubber belt. Turn the machine on its side and turn it ON, keeping FINGERS !AWAY! from the roller area. If the Roller Brush is not moving it may be that the belt has slipped off or is broken or simply too loose to turn the Roller. Also sometimes debris such as strings, long hair, carpet strands/fibers will become wrapped around the roller especially next to the roller bearing/brace points, to the point of binding so tightly that the roller will no longer be able to actually roll which would now prevent it from 'Vacumning' or sweeping dirt and such up into the vortex of the vacumn chamber. In which case, !!UNPLUG!! the machine, use small scissors to cut away the material wrapped around the roller paying particular attention to the brace point areas.

No vacumn action


Is the roller turning, if not you may need a new belt and/or brush roll. Did you check the inlet by the brush roll?

Bissell Healthy Home Vacumn


On the Healthy Homes Vac, did you check the switch for the vac, there are 2 on the handle, and the one could be open. Check the wiring at the motor, could even be the motor itself. If at the motor there is a thermostat, it could be bad, but comes with the motor.
