Easy fix- mine did this too for a while bfore I figured out the handle wasn't aligning properly where attached. Give it a smack to realign it and it works again

Re: Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum

Could be that you have a clog, maybe down by the brush roll or in the hose. If not, then either the cord or a wire internally is loose, you would have to take apart to check the wiring.

Bissell healthy home vacuum will not turn on. I have checked everything on the vacuum. All the filters are clean and there are no clogs. I have had it for 10 months with no issues until now.

- The handle may not be installed properly, causing a loss in the power connection. Remove the handle completely. Slide the handle back into place on the lower section of handle and tighten the screw.

Beater bar is not coming on- belt is on, canister is empty. Vacuum runs but no beater bar

Remove the beater bar and clean the debris from the bar and the end bearings. Remove the belt (remember how it is installed) and check it for any damaged areas. Make sure the bar turns freely before the belt is attached to the motor drive. Hope this helps!

How do you change the belt on a bissell 5770

The Bissell 5770/Healthy Home vacuum is actually fairly easy to change the belt on. The main thing you will need is a T20 screwdriver with at least a 4 inch shaft and a Phillips-head screwdriver. Four of the six T20 screws on the bottom plate are easy to locate, the last two are set deeper into the vacuum near the wheels. Once you have taken all six T20 screws out you will have to release the lock preventing the vacuum from tilting back so you can easily remove the top plate and gain access to the brush assembly. With the top plate off you will notice four Phillips-head screws holding a cover plate over the brush, simply remove them and you have full access to the belt.

The brushes on my new healthy home vacuum wont rotate when the machine is turned on how do i access the belt location

If you turn the vacuum over so you can see the brush roll, there is a brush cover that is held on by (4) screws. Remove those screws and the base plate cover will come off. With the base plate cover off you can access the roller brush an belt. If you need a replacement belt you can get it here:

Bissell Healthy Home 5770 Fails to Turn On and Has No Suction!

I have the same problem sometimes...I noticed that the main body sometimes comes apart (the two sections under the turbo brush) and you just have to line them up again. If this is what's happening for you, try that. If they are still lined up, I'm not sure what's going on. Recently my brushes stopped spinning and eventually they just came back on...don't know why, but I'm guessing the contacts inside the vacuum are dirty or some things are coming loose.
