The plastic piece on the bottom may not have been properly seated before installing the screws.

I just got done fixing a unit with this problem. After a bit of time, dirt will build up in the lower unit and clog the vacumm tube. Symptoms: No air flow coming out of the vacuum. Motor is hot. Stuff is spitting out of the front Motor wouldnt start it had over heated. You should remover the roller and clear the clog by hand. Let the motor cool down and it should start once it had cooled down.

SOURCE: belt on this vacuum

Take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll, take out the brush roll, check it to make sure the ends turn freely, the belt goes around the end of the brush roll, then stretch it to go over the motor shaft.

SOURCE: Vacuum sounds like an airplane after 1 year of use.

the motor bearings are starting to fail most likely. You can diagnose the source of the noise by removing the brushroll and belt, could possibly be the brushroll bearings but if you still get the noise when the belt is off its the motor.

How do I clean the filter


The foam filter can be hand washed, squeezed and them dried.
The pleated filter really never seems to loose it stall smell after cleaning. It's best to tap it against the hard ground to free the dirt.
Washing it can cause odors.

Hey Troy, the PowerForce Turbo Helix doesn't have a reset button. You may want to have a Qualified Technician at at BISSELL Authorized Service Center inspect your vacuum.

Here's a quick link to assist you in locating one in your area.

Turbo brush on bissell cleanview helix stopped spinning


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuum's belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

The turbobrush for my cleanview helix 22c1 is not working


It's probably either just dirty, or the belt is broken. If it's dirty, you can just take the cover off (two Phillips head screws on the bottom) and clean everything off the brush.

If the belt is broken, you can tell by turning the large gear at the back of the brush -- if the brush turns when you spin the gear, the belt isn't broken -- then you'll need to replace it. You can buy a new belt online, or you can buy a replacement Turbo Brush directly from Bissell ($24.99).

Hope that helps!
