Check to see if something is stuck in the beater bar, (aka- rotary brush). Might need a new belt.

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.

If you have access to a small sink "snake" used to clear clogs in sinks, you might be able to use it to "snag" the sock and pull it out. Needs to be a metal sewer snake so that you can tug on it if and when it snags the sock.

I changed the belt on my bissell Cleanview revolution 3596 twice and both times the belt burned and starting to smoke. I'm not sure what to do now I have two broken belts what could I be doing wrong?


Sounds like the brush that the belt runs (or is supposed to run) is being kept from turning. If you can get the brush out to clean it and lubricate the ends that go into the holder clips, this should solve the problem. With the new belts burning and smoking it appears that the motor is running okay, but as I said, the brush that is supposed to be turning is frozen solid from debris or dirt. Need to free the brush and lubricate the brush holders with some WD40.

I accidently sucked up a pen cap and it stopped working then it began smoking and the belt snapped??


Take the pen cap out of where it is stuck and replace the belt. Most likely the smoke was from the belt slipping around the gear and getting hot. Did the smoke smell like burning rubber?

Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber


The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll. If it is ok, try to turn the brush roll by hand, maybe the belt got pinched and won't move.

Bissell revolution roller won't turn


Did you check the brush roll, if one of the ends is melted together and won't turn, then the belt will just slip and overheat.

Hi Pmob20,

 

Remove the brush and clean all the string or whatever may be trapped at the end edges of the brush.  This is usually the case with Bissel vacs, that string or fiber gets trapped at the ends of the brush assembly.
