Wish you had posted the model number, but it could be a broken belt and/or brush roll. Some of the Bissells had a separate brsuh roll motor which may be bad.

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

I have the bissell power force bagged upright vacuum and the brush is not turning, I have replaced the belt but the brush will not move but the metal piece that is hooked to the motor that spins the belt...


sounds like your brush roll is seized. Remove the brush roll (see picture) and make both of the end caps spin freely. If not, replace it and you should be set.

Make sure that the brush roll spins freely.


Hope that helps.

The Brush Motor on my Bissell Healthyhome Vacuum wont start


I had this same problem. There is a screw that holds the top handle and the lower handle "together". If this screw is not TOTALLY tightly screwed in, this will cause the contacts in the switch to BREAK contact, and therefore one or BOTH motors may not start, or cut in and out. This was the fix for me.

We have power but the front brush does not turn?


Your belt is probably broken, stretched or worn. You can get a replacement belt here:

Check the brush motor, I have had to replace of few of them. If the brushes aren't turning, this could be the problem.
