    Main roller brush that is rotated using a belt. The hinges are made of plastic and thus they melt away as soon as a hair is trapped between the brush end and the plastic hinge.

    Last time it took two and half months for the repair shop to repair (replace brush). Do we want to be without a vacuum for over two months ?

    Brush for this model is like a consumable and should available off the shelf just like bags and belts. Why should I pay labor charges for something so easy to install ?

You should be able to order thru a repair shop, you will need your model number. Are you talking about the brush roll or an attachment brush?

    Brush rolls are not stocked like belts and bags. There too many different ones and more expensive is the reason. You can replace it yourself, oorder one thru a repair shop or order online. Go to http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/, part # for the MC-V7720 is AC84RCKPZ000, lists for $30.18 +shipping

I have a DC24 multifloor exclusive. My brush bar is not stable and melting the plastic. I need to know if there is a pin or screw on the side that is missing to stabilize the bar.


There are usually 2 bushes on the end of the brush bar, which are shaped so they can only fit in one way. They have a small metal bush inserted into the plastic fitting. Perhaps this has slipped down the brush metal rod. Has it melted the dyson as well as the brush? If you have to replace the brush bar, eBay sell them, the kit comes with 2 different type of ends depending on the model. Putting the new brush bar in is a bit of a stretch, you have to turn it as you are pulling the band tight over the brush until it is lined up. Good luck.

When I am vacuuming , there is a horrible noise that comes from the brush area of my vacuum. when the vacuum is set to bare floor or is upright there is no noise. the vacuum has not lost suction.


Hi there VacuumGuru here from www.VacuumSpot.com.au here. The rattle is the clutch engaging. It can happen for a couple of reasons. The best case for you is if there is something caught in the brush roller that you can simply remove. The next best is that the end caps of the brush are full of junk that you will be able to clean. Its not easy getting the brush out to clean there but it can be done.
If the brush spins in your hand easily when the brush is removed then it is the clutch itself. The main roller often melts which is caused when the tension on the belt gets to high thus creating too much heat. THis can be resolved only with a new clutch.
Hope this helps, if you have more questions dont hesitate to reply or if you need parts just visit

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.

Thank you,

Bissell 6595 problems with roller brush. I've had this happen with two of the same model. Each one didn't last more than seven months! First, it became loud when vacuuming, then there was a burning smell....


Hair and dust will work its way under the endcaps of the brushroll causing friction which can melt the brushroll and get hot enough to melt the nozzle housing as you have found. You will need to remove the endcaps to clean the debris out before it causes damage. I don't believe the endcaps are removable on your model. It will save you a lot of money in the long run to purchase a new vacuum that has a metal brushroll with removable endcaps. I have a durable long lasting Riccar vacuum with a metal brushroll available at ThatVacGuy.com. With this model you can pull the brushroll out once a year to clean it and install a new belt. With simple routine maintenance you can do yourself this model will perform great for many years.

The vacuum cleaning brush is not spending


Yes belt probably broken. Also the brush roller heats up on the ends, causing the plastic end cap nearest the belt to melt/weld to the end. It's supposed to spin freely. Also 2 bearings inside tend to become sticky, probably from heat. Next thing you know, the brush roller is seized and will not turn. Probably the whole reason the belt breaks. New belt & new brush roller, 30-35 bucks. It will happen again. Now you've spent almost half what it costs new. Lose the junk. 2 years for a cheap vacuum is the normal life span anyhow.

Why are new belts breaking immediately?


Could be the brush has resistance..
While the new belt is in place - spin the brush by hand.. The brush should spin reasonably freely..
If not - take the brush out and inspect it.. Be sure the ends are not jammed and you can snin them easily.. If not - replace the brush..
PS - the belt goes in one way.. If inside-out - it will not last as long..
Directions on packageing..

Hope this helps !!

Rotating brush


Sounds like the brush roll has an end that is melted or frozen up so it won't move, in which case you need to replace it.

Bearings in the vaccum's main brush


Alot of times things get wound up on the brush roll ends and causes friction, the ends will overheat and melt, you just have to replace the brush roll(62365-2) and a new belt (61120A)while you are at it. Also check the slots where the brush sit in to make sure they didn't melt too, if so you would have to replace the base(62577).
