Turbo Tool doesn't spin freely

The brush beater in the turbo tool does not spin as freely as when it was new. Because of this, it does not clean surfaces as well and gets clogged more frequently. I clean it out as thoroughly as I can, even using tweezers or tapping to remove any little pieces of obstruction or dust. Is there a safe way to lubricate it or some other way to restore the turbo spin?

This is air-driven, the only way to clean it is to take it apart. Clean out the bearings and end pieces for the wheel. If it is metal, put a drop of lite weight oil on them, but if plastic, then don'f use oil. Use furniture wax to clean and lube if you need to. It needs to turn freely with no friction. If this doesn't help, then replace it.

Also, turbo tools are notorious for not working if the side parts that hold the main turbine wheel and belt in place have slipped upwards. Ensure that each side part has slid down and locked into place. Sometimes the turbine wheel hinges get clogged up with carpet threads which render the wheel useless. By removing this the turbo brush should move freely and not so stiffly.

Turbo tool used only once or twice, already brush moves so slowly it stops when I try to use. Brush can actually be stopped by hand. Manual says nothing at all about the brush ie. HOW to take apart to see...


It takes a lot of suction to spin the brush. First make sure the suction is good. Make sure the bag and/ or filters are clean. Replace if necessary. Most turbo tools can be opened up to clean. Most have a lever that allows you to open it up to clean hair, dust, etc from the fan and fan shaft and other areas inside the tool. The tools pick up a lot of hair and debris and some will wrap around the moving parts building pup to the point the brush will not spin fast enough. The same thing can happen to the brush roll on your vacuum so be sure to clean it too and replace the belt at least twice per year.

Bissel 3760-4 brush motor doesn't turn on


Hi Tim. I understand the brush is turning & belt is fine. You may want to remove and reseat the canister. If this doesn't work, you'll want to have one of our Authorized Service Centers inspect your vacuum.
Here's a link to assist you in locating one in your area: http://www.bissell.com/service-centers/?cid=ccsocial

I have an old fantom thunder upright and need to take the bottom off it to see what is stuck in it. I don't know how to do this.


moz-screenshot.jpgI found a manual for the Fantom Stick Vac, model FS801 (your model may be different).
For "Cleaning Air Driven Turbo Brush", it says:

  1. Remove the turbo brush from the hose or extension tube.
  2. Slide locking latch forward, then tilt the top housing of the brush upwards. The top housing is hinged and will tilt up approximately 45 degrees only.
  3. There may be some dust, lint, hair, etc. on the turbine wheel. Remove as much of this as possible.
  4. You may also use the unit's hose with the crevice tool attached, and use the vacuum to remove any additional debris from the turbine.
  5. Ensure that the turbine wheel moves freely by rotating it with your finger. If the turbine does not rotate, call Customer Service for help.
  6. Once clean, close the top cover of the turbo brush and slide the locking latch towards the rear of the brush to lock.
There is also an image in the manual that might help. You can download the manual for free here.

Hope this helps!

My h20 vac is smelling like its burned out it aint sucking up and just want to know how do i fix the problem when it turns on


Sounds like the beater brush has frozen up and the belt is being burned by the motor.
Follow the instructions to change the beater belt and when you have the brush removed, clean it as best you can. At each end of the brush, add some WD40 to help the brush spin easier in the end holders attached to the brush. Reassemble and be sure the new belt is properly installed so the brush moves in the correct direction.
If you find this solution to be helpful, I would appreciate and appropriate Thumbs Up rating from you.
Be well, Paul

I have a bissell easy vac and the metal part that spins the rubberband and brush keeps overheating and burning all the belts I replace. What should I do?


Sounds like the beater brush is frozen and won't turn. Remove the beater brush and clean off all debris, especially at both ends. You will find a square(?) piece at each end of the beater brush that holds it in place. This need to turn freely. Put a little WD40 on these where the center rod of the beater brush enters the small holders and turn by hand until they turn freely. Once this is done, assemble with new belt, making sure the belt is put on properly. If the belt is missing and you need to replace, I would still do the cleaning on the beater brush. It should move freely when you turn it by hand.

My bissell vaccum doesnt work even though i've replaced the belt but when ever i turn it on i get this rubber smell...can anyone tell me


Sounds like the beater brush that the belt controls is frozen in place and needs to be cleaned. Remove the brush and clean any debris that you find on it AND at either end. The end pcs are used to hold the ends of the brush stationary while it spins via the belt. When you get the brush off, spray both end pcs with a bit of WD40 and work by hand until they spin freely. This should solve your problem.

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.
