If the burning smell was like rubber burning it is probably the belt. If you only used it a few times I suggest bringing it back to place of purchase. A belt should not go after just a few times of use. Besides if anything is burning after just a few uses I would return it.

When you smell burning like that it usually indicates that the belt is worn and slipping on the motor shaft. You probably need to change the belt. You can get the belts for your model here:

SOURCE: Bissell carpet cleaner not sucking up.

I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

SOURCE: Carpet not getting moist

Huh I had this issue. It was killing me only used it like six times then no water. I took this apart four times man. They told me it was the pump. I finally ripped it all the way down. It was the pump. But it was the black connector on the main motor. Which runs the pump it came loose. I pressed it back on problem solved. Make sure you crimp it a bit. so it does not vibrate off again. Hope this helps.

Bissell lift off bagless making high pitched noise, fan seems to run for 30 seconds after shutting off, and a burning rubber smell, is it the belt, and how easy are they to change


The burning rubber smell is usually the belt. Be careful not to use it on your carpet as the rubber belt can get hot and liquify and really mess up your carpet (if you have one). Here's a link to some instructions for replacing the belt.

Belt is hot to touch


If the belt is hot or you smell it burning then chances are it has stretched a little and is slipping on either the motor shaft or beater bar shaft. If you are sure the beater bar is not restricted from turning then I would just replace it. Try this.. With the power cord disconnected, open the vac head to gain access to the beater brush and belt.. then remove the belt.. place the beater bar back into its holder and see if it easily turns by hand.. if it is free to turn..then plug the vac in and turn it on for a few seconds.. you will see and hear the motor come on but you should NOT smell anything burning at that time. If you do.. you may have another issue with the motor or power cord or both.. if you don't smell anything burning, then disconnect the power and just replace the belt.... Good luck.
