I'm having the same issue and it was the pump. The metal drive gear sheared off of the plastic pump shaft. I JB Welded it back together, now I just need a schematic to reassemble the cleaner.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Belt keeps burning and breaking

Hello There,

It sounds like you need to replace the roller brush. If your Bissell is breaking belts that fast, then that can only really mean one of two things. The first being that the belts are not being properly installed, and the roller brush is pinching the belt which causes the belt to break, but after 3 belts I doubt this to be the case.

Probably the more likely problem is that the brush roller's bearing have seized up. You may test this by removing the roller brush from the vacuum, and holding it with on your two pointer fingers holding the outside bearing caps of the brush, making sure not to touch the actual part that spins. Now try to spin the brush while holding the bearing caps with your pointer fingers. The brush should spin freely, and should revolve around 5-6 times with each spin. If the brush doesn't spin easily, then this is going to put a lot more stress on the belt.

You may try to remove the bearing caps on the ends by twisting them off, and visually inspect each side to make sure there is no hair or thread that's lodged inside the bearing cap. This will make the brush hard to spin, and can cause you to burn belts quickly like you have been. You may find the bearing caps will not come off. This indicates that your brush roll has worn out the bearings completely, and the bearing caps have melted to the bearings due to extreme heat. You will then need to replace the roller brush if this is the case, and it maybe the best solution for you if you have burned through 3 belts so quickly.

The roller brush for your Bissell (I'm assuming this is yours as this is where the repair was posted on Fixya) 6594 PowerForce upright uses Bissell roller brush part number; 203-1195. Here's a link if you need to purchase one;
http://www.govacuum.com/biclandpobar.html

I have uploaded the parts schematic and owners manual to the main Fixya page for your model as well. Sometimes it can take 24 hours for Fixya to publish this data, but please visit the link to these documents in 24 hours or less;
http://www.fixya.com/support/p49887-bissell_6594_powerforce_bagless_upright#manuals.

If your roller brush is good, then examine where the brush rests inside of the vacuum cleaner, this is called the agitator housing. Look at the sides of the agitator housing where the bearing caps rest. Do you see any visible damage on either side? Sometimes the brush can get so hot, it may melt the agitator housing on the sides where the brush rests, this will also cause the belts to burn very quickly.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. If none of these suggestions fixed your vacuum, please just add a comment, or request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to respond.
