Question about Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
If it is the belt how do I change it?
My wife had the same problem. after checking the belt (not very user friendly) and all the wires on the motor for loose connections i was about ready to chuck it when i noticed the handle wasn't flush with the rest of the upper body of the vacuum. there's a phillips screw on the back of the neck about an inch lower than the little power brush attachment that had either loosened or had never been properly assembled. there is a little blue triangle with a phillips head in it right next to the hole for this screw. hers was working of and on for a while before it stopped all together so it probably has a tendency to back itself out. when the handle and body don't line up, the brush switch will stop working. the handle may feel secure even if this screw is loose so check it anyway. be careful not to tighten it too much because it's only going in to plastic and can strip easily. hope this helps.
what a piece of junk by the way.

Just in case you had the same problem - there is a button at the top that says brush - press it as I asked my wife and she insisted she had and after taking this thing apart and finding nothing - i pushed the bttuon and it worked fine.
she thought I meant the tilt foot pedal which also turns it on.

Thank you to the person who posted about the loose screw on the back of the handle! You saved me buying a new vacuum! The beater brush on our Healthy Home has been working only intermittently for the last 6 months, and it was getting worse. It was to the point where I could only vacuum about 20 square feet before it would quit. I tried cleaning it, changing filters (thinking it was a suction problem), I considered taking it in for service, but didn't want to pay for that. I was seriously going to just buy a new vacuum this weekend, but thought I'd do some internet research first before giving up. Thanks so much for posting this, and for others who may be experiencing this problem, check that screw before you do anything else. It's stupid that one screw could cause such a big problem, but it was really easy to fix! It's a good vacuum, it's just too bad it wasn't made a little better. Thanks again!
