Question about Bissell 37604 Lift-Off Pet Bagless Upright / Canister Vacuum CleanerVacuum
My husband cleaned out the filter and cleaned the rotating brush. When he tried to continue vacuuming, white smoke started coming out of the lower base of the machine and smelled like burning rubber. We have no idea what could have caused this because all he did was clean it as we normally do. We have only had the vacuum cleaner for a year and a half and Bissell won't do anything to help us because the warranty expired six months ago.
Make sure everything is dried off, I encountered the same symptoms once when I had some water remaining in the rotating brush after wiping the machine down.

Turn switch to OFF position.
Press button and slide latch towards outside of cleaner. Rotate dirt cup toward back of cleaner.
While holding dirt cup, grasp filter frame and lift out filter. Empty dirt cup after every use. Dirt cup can be cleaned with a damp cloth. Allow to dry thoroughly.
Pull middle section of filter out of filter frame. To remove debris from filter, tap it on a hard surface or brush it with a soft brush.
Remove lint, strings, etc. from the brush roll located on the underneath side of the nozzle.
Replace the brush roll when the brushes do not touch the edge of a card as it is moved across the opening on the bottom of the nozzle.
Further disassembly of the cleaner is not recommended. Hope this helps!

Locate and purchase the correct belt for your Eureka vacuum cleaner from the local grocery or department store. Vacuum belts come in different sizes according to your model of vacuum. Check your owner's manual or the vacuum itself for your model number.
Turn your vacuum cleaner over so that the bottom of the unit is facing you. Remove the cover plate from the bottom by undoing the screws that are holding it in place with a screwdriver.
Locate the belt pulley rod near the back of the vacuum base coming out of the motor. With the vacuum cleaner base turned upside down and facing you, the motor and pulley rod should be up near the top of the base.
Slide the vacuum brush roller out of the slots at the bottom of the vacuum base and remove the old belt from the brush roller and pulley rod. With the brush roller off of the unit, clean the brush by removing any strings or cords wrapped around the tube.
Install the new belt by looping it over the belt pulley rod next to the motor and then looping around the end of the brush roller in the belt slot. Hold the brush roller and pull back on it to tighten the belt while you slide the roller back into the slots on the vacuum base.
Replace the base cover plate by snapping it back into place and securing it with screws. Turn vacuum back upright and turn it on to test the belt and verify the unit is working
