No power in the brush


You may have either excess friction in a bearing or a slipping belt. Unplug the vacuum cleaner, remove the bottom plate, try turning the motor pulley by hand. If it is very hard to turn, remove the belt, then check the brush bearings and the motor bearings to see where the gum-up is. If it turns normally, try turning the motor pulley with one hand while holding the brush with the other to see if there is any slip in the belt or in the brush pulley. If the belt is loose, first check for loose screws or broken motor mounting posts. If those are all good, and the motor is as far back as the screw mounts let it go, the belt is probably stretched and should be replaced.

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.

A burning smell when in use


Martinsivyer:

Turn the machine upside-down and see if you can turn the beater/brush bar with your hand. You should see the brush turning and feel the resistance from the motor. The brush/beater bar may be binding, and what you are smelling is the motor shaft spinning against the rubber belt. You can remove the base plate and check the brush/beater bar with the belt disconnected. If the brush/beater bar is difficult to turn, you need to remove the brush/beater bar and clean the bearings at each end, Remove any threads that are wound around the beater bar ends so that the bearings roll easily and smoothly. Check to see that your machine is not set too low for the surface that you are bacuuming. While you have the belt disconnected, check thi inside surface to see if the motor shaft has been spinning against the belt, you'll see the damage to the inside circumfrence of the belt.

Eureka Altima - before I can get one room vacuumed the belt breaks. Why?


If the belt is breaking that quickly, there is one very prominent culprit that could be causing the problem. Check to see that the beater brush, the roller brush that the belt is supposed to drive, is turning freely on the unit. Remove the brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at both ends of the beater brush by the hard rubber holders and turn the brush by hand to work it into the joint. Reassemble and be sure the belt is put on so the brush turns in the proper direction. Paul

You get to the belt & brush roll area from the top. On the hood of the vacuum, right behind the word Altima, to the right & left sides, you will see a screw. Remove them, lift off plastic hood. Check belt if broken or just stretched too big to catch brush to turn it. Check ends of brushroll for any hair, thread buildup & clean it. See if end caps turn easily. If one or both ends do not turn easily, the brush roll would need to be replaced.

Brushes not turning


If your brushes are rotated by a black rubber belt, chances are that they belt has stretched out or has been worn and you need to replace that belt, also , check and remove any black rubber residue from the brushes and where the belt loops around. Also check for obstructions thru the hoses restricting air flow.

Bissel pro heat /brushes do not turn


Belt worn or hair build up can clog it from spinning. I've seen this on other models. Just remove the hair slowly. If the Belt is worn you can replace that from Bissel or any store that sells their product.


Check to ensure that the pump belt and brush belt are intact and installed according to the instructions provided in the User's Guide.

The pump belt is located under the belt access door on the side of the machine. This belt should be looped around the red pulley and the silver motor shaft.

To check the brush belt, please follow these directions:

Turn the machine OFF and unplug from the wall outlet.

Step on the handle release pedal to lay the handle down on the floor.

Remove the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle and set them aside.

Turn the machine over to expose the brush.

Look for the red retainer plates, which hold the black brush arms in place. Remove the two Phillips head screws to access the toothed brush belt. Check to ensure the belt is intact and looped around the brush end, as well as the red pulley with the ridges.

Remove any dirt or debris from the brush assembly.
Inspect brush, brush arms, red brush arm retainers and red pulley for damage and replace parts if applicable.

Belt Stretched on my Hoover Windtunnel Farrington upright model U6431-900


hi, In order to to replace the V belt the one that turns the brush, One must take off the bigger belt " drive belt" that goes over that hugh wheel towards the back. When a belt gets stretched they will not turn the brush very well. If you have bought replacement belts the bigger belt Drive comes 2 in a package. Then you have your little V belt that helps turn your roller brush over. Yes the belts don't last long on my hoover. For kpatr22101 When you rpelace that V belt it goes over the roller brush into a little groove on the brush and then over a plastic round wheel then you must put on that bigger drive belt that must fit over that hugh wheel towards back and smaller on in front. Yes it is hard to get on. the I hope this helps. Cindy G.
