Check to see taht with no belt in place the brush roll turns freely.There should be no resistance. If not remove hair and thread from ends of brush
Then check the leveling screws on the end of the brush to be sure they are adjusted evenly.
Install the carpet head with the brush raised off the floor and lower with the pedal1 click at a time to carpet level just low enough to skim the surface, then try 1 click lower.

I have a vax bagless upright mach 5 no power at all

usually...burt rubber smells indicate burning rubber.... the belt will get hot and smell like this if the brush rollers are hard to turn due to hair or string getting caught in the roller and especially at the ends of the roller where the axle of the roller meets the vacuume cleaner .... ya gotta take the whole brush off and clean it... if you use it on damp floors ( like carpet where snow was tracked in) the metal parts can rust and cause it to bind. if the vac no longer turns on at all.... you probably blew an internal fuze (if it has one) or burnt out the wiring..... fuzes are replaceable but wires require a vacuume cleaner repair person.

Belt keeps breaking after only short use on vacum cleaner

Each vacuum cleaner manufacturer produces specific belts for specific machines. An incompatible belt installed on the vacuum cleaner will cause the belt to break or burn. The belt must be installed according to manufacturer directions for best performance, or the belt will chafe against the interior housing parts and break prematurely.Sharp debris, a low height adjustment setting or vacuuming up rug corners may cause the rubber belt to snap or wear prematurely. Check the height adjustment for the vacuum, and use a higher setting for plush rugs. Avoid vacuuming sharp objects and corners of the rug.

My vacuume will come on, but the brush will not spin and the belt will not spin

The belt may be worn and loose,causing it to slip on the motor shaft. If this is the case, you'll need to replace it. I generally recommend it be taken to a shop to ensure proper tension and correct reassembly.

My bissell vacuum cleaner has stopped sucking things up as well as it was when I first purchased it two months ago. It also seems to be pushing more air out than it is sucking up.

with most vacuum cleaners the problem stems from carpet fuzz (especially in new carpet instalations) to build up of pet hair I have repaired several vacuum cleaners & my solution has use a shop vac if possible 15 amps or more clean the hose, check the belt(s) or if is not bagless make sure you have the proper fitting bag happy repair

1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement

Generic problem for all Vacuums
1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement

How do you get into the belt to replace it?

Not knowing the brand name of the vacuum other than the 1800 vacuum cleaner belt replacement, normally the belt is located @ the bottom the vacuum attached to the brushroll and is held on by either screws, clips, or some even snap on – but mostly they use some type of screws to open the area to replace the belt, if needed contact the company website, include the brand name and the model number and request a schematic of the vacuum and that will give you an exploded view of how the vacuum assm goes together and also shows the belt replacement and how that is connected.
