Question about GE 106585 Upright Vacuum

I need a "Bearing Assembly" for roller brush 61445-1,I Have a GE 106575

Hello,I Have a GE 106575,and to make a long story short,I need the "Bearing Assembly" for the brush roller 61445-1. The roller brush is in perfect condition except for one of the "Bearing Assembly's". It is not practical or wise to replace the whole roller brush because of 1 removable part that went bad. That would be like throwing good money down the drain. I can assume the "Bearing Assembly's" on this roller brush will need replacing every so often.

So I need to know where I can purchase the "Bearing Assembly" for the brush roller 61445-1.

Thank You Very Much,EarlsOK

From the manual that came with it, the bearings are non-serviceable, and the whole brush roller needs to be replaced... Originally part 61445-1 was $15.89 + $5.50 postage & handling in the USA only. I don't know what it would be now.

Probably should just go to a repair shop and they should be able to order one for you, that is if they are available by themselfs. Or if you have a store where you live that sells vacuum parts, you could go there.

Dyson model DC07 the belt controlling the beater bar is not turning but does have tension


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 vacuums 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.

Hi, the first thing to check is the bearing at the end of the brush bar, take the belt off and spin the brush round with your hand to see if it makes a noise.

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. If this was helpful, please be sure to rate the repair by clicking on the 4 thumbs up icons in the upper right hand corner.

How to replace Simplicity vac brush roll strips?


The caps will come out of the end of the metal roller. They can be difficult if it's been a long time as dirt and grime can build up. Try sticking a flat head screwdriver in and gently twisting to get the caps to slide out.

Brush Roller


Not likely. You just need a new belt. The roller has graduated bearing caps that are adjustable for brush wear. If you look on the bottom/back of the roller housing, you will see a guide that tells you which colour code you use to compensate for the brush wear. The bearing caps are colour coded to indicate the adjustment.

Brush won't spin


Dear Xana,I have had problems like yours before. More times then not the roller brush "belt" got damaged and needed to be replaced.
You should also check your roller brush and make sure it was not knocked out of alignment.

If neither of these solutions help,then it could be, your roller brush "Bearing Assembly"got damaged which would mean you need to either replace the "Bearing Assembly" if it is removable and if you can find that part.Or else you would need to replace the whole "Roller Brush".

You can normally tell if the "Bearing Assembly" is damaged by trying to turn the roller brush with your hands,if it takes a lot of force to make it turn,then theirs a good chance it was damaged!

These repairs are fairly easy to do, just read your Vacuum manual on replacing parts,also make sure you always have the vacuum unplugged while replacing parts or doing repairs.

I hope this info helps,EarlsOK

Brush won't spin


Yes it could be the belt or the "Bearing Assembly". I had the same problem with a vacuum I got from a friend. 1st I replace the belt,but when I turned the vacuum on I could smell something burning and then the belt broke in half. I then realized the brush roller was stuck in place and would not turn even with force applied. I later found out that 1 of the 2 Bearing Assembly's was worn out,when a Bearing Assembly is worn out the brush roller can not spin. So now it looks like I need to buy a whole new brush roller,unless I can find a place that sells the Bearing Assembly for part number 61445-1,which is a roller brush for a GE Wal Mart vacuum.

I have the same vacuum for the last 5 years.  I dont know if its the same as 5550 (I assume it isn't) but I can give you the part number 61445-1.  It costs around $16 and you can call 1-877-207-0923 b/w 7 am and 8 pm Mon-Fri central time, or fax 1-309-823-5789.  They add shipping/handling of $ 6.
