Why are the belts burning and the brush not turning?


Check the ends of your brush roll. Most have bearings on the end and if one of those is locked up and will not turn it will burn the belt. Sometimes hair will get in the bearing area and will contribute to the bearing locking up.

Bissell powerforce brush won't turn when powered


Hey, you may want to have check if the brush turns by hand without the belt in place. If the brush doesn't turn manually, you'll need to replace the brush.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website to assist you.

Brushes will not rotate


I can't tell for sure from the pictures, but there are two possibilities - the drive belt to the brushes broke, or the brush can't turn due to excessive hair wrapped around the shaft. If the belt is OK but the brush does not turn, you should smell burning rubber.

If the belt is broken, you have to remove the bottom plate to expose the brush, remove the brush and the broken belt, and replace the belt, and put it back to gether. While you have the brush out, now would be a good time to clean it - remove the hair, etc from the brush and around the shaft. Good Luck!

Brush will not turn


Assume that the belt is broken to the power brush /head. Did you happen to smell burning rubber or see small pieces of black rubber? Look in your manual for replacing power head/brushes belt! With the unit off , try turning the brushes by hand and clean them off of debris, etc., as well while there. See if you feel some tension or hear the motor moving inside, indication that the belt is still attrached and if it doesn't seem to have any resistance and you see small pieces of rubber and /or, the band/belt may have just broke from normal usage. WalMart sells most types or your local vacuum repair facility.. check the Yellow pages and let your fingers do the walking.. Good luck

My enviro vac is being stubborn


First , spin the brush roll by hand and see if it spins freely. Then remove it.
CLEAN OUT ANY HAIR OR THREAD UNDER THE CAPS Inspect the end caps , if one is melted you will need to replace the cap if available or the entire brush roll assembly.
The "metal piece" is the motor shaft. Clean any burned rubber of with fine wet dry sand paper, then install a fresh belt, using the brush for leverage to stretch the belt into place. Rotate the brush again to be sure it is not binding and that the belt is not pinched anywhere.
Buy 2 belts and keep your spare inside the hood of the vac.

Brush froze up and keeps breaking belts


I had the same problem but I found that I had replaced belt incorrectly. After placing one end of belt around pully, it has to be run behind the "belt disengager" which looks like a 1/2" wide metal tab just past pulley. After placing belt correctly I had no more belt, burning smell or brush problems.
