Did you check the inlet hose down by the brush roll, it may be clogged there. Your system says that that must be a clog. Did you drop something like a big marble down thru the hose and have go all the way thru?

My Bissell has been new filters, belt and had the hoses cleaned. Still blows dirt out the back onto my feet and has no suction.

The first place to look is to see if you have a clog where the dirt flows into the vacuum down by the brush roll. This is a very common place for clog, it may be back in deep where it is hard to see.

Bissell 3750-T Bagless Upright Vacuum motor is hot, noisy, and smells like it is burned out, but still working. Can I replace the motor?

There are threee filters inside this unit. Be sure all three are clean. You can't clean the Hepa filter. You can only replace it. You may even try pluging it in and running it (not while vacuuming the carpet) without the filters to see if it is clogged up anywhere. It's not uncommon to **** up an object that doesn't fit though the vaccum hose very well and for that item to cause hair etc to catch on it and plug that hose. Before you know it you have a big plug in that hose. The hose detaches easily. Look through it.

I have a bisell vacuum but no suction The spinner at the bottom is not spinning how do i reset

You have a clog somewhere in the hose. You may have a belt off. You MIGHT have a air driven brush, if that is the case, dont look for the belt ... look for the clog. You may want to use a shop vac to help you remove the clog. Loosen what ever you have to to assure the hoses are CLEAR.

Good luck

My bissel upright vaccum cleaner belt got damaged and i replaced it with a new one , but it got damaged immd after replacing

In the area where you replace the belt, see if you can remove the beater bar, and check that there is nothing stuck in the area that is causing the damage, like a small screw or similar item.

Check all filters, hoses for clogs. If sucking and still not picking up you may need a new belt.

When the vaccum is running the motor gets hot & smells & is very noisy.

Sounds like yu may have a clog, either in the inlet by the brush roll, or the hose. If the hose comes loose, see if there is suction there. If no suction then it is clogged. If suction, then the inlet maybe clogged.
