How do you replace the belt? I took off the door and there seems to be no easy way to get it over the lower red wheel.

    You were right about how to replace the belt But I had did take it to a repair person and she did it and part of the problem was there was a lot of pet hair in the brushes that broke the belt and she had to open up the whole machine and clean out the hair and pound back a metal cap that
    got loose because of the pet hairs. So it did get complicated and
    was more than the belt.
    Thanks for you help and prompt reply.

Take off belt cover on the left side of the top cover, turn cleaner over, take out screw from red lock and remove, pull cap and brush roll out, unhook the cogged belt, then you can replace the pump belt thru that opening. Put belt over the pump pulley and stretched to go over the motor shaft. Then check the cogged belt and the cogged end of the pully to make sure that there are cogs, replace belt if there are cogss missing or belt is broke, if no cogs on the pulley, then you will have to replace the pump. Pulley only comes witht he pump.

When I press the foot pedal it just whines until I manually move the hand wheel and it starts sewing. It will sew but each time I stop I have to "help" it get started by turning the hand wheel. ...


Have you checked the tension setting and also, see if the belt spins free when you press on the foot petal. If the belt seems tight and isn't slipping it's something else. Belts aren't hard to change. Just difficult because you kinda/sorta don't take no for an answer and with slight force, get the old one out and squeeze the new one in while turning the wheel by hand with a little pressure. Seems wrong but that's how they change them in the shop!

The Dyson was working fine, I took the filter out, washed and dried it, put it back, and it seemed to work fine for about 30 minutes. Now the air will not pull from the bottom, only from the nozzle.


Sounds like the belt may have broken.Turn it on and look at the brush.See if it is turning if it is not,replace the belt.To replace the belt you have to remove the plate on the bottom.The brush has a groove on it.That is where the belt goes.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel a few inches back from the brush.

Bissell Proheat 25A3/64D9 series - cleaned one rug - now the wheels won't turn and it looks like the belts are on ok. What else should I look for?


I had the same problem. I found that when I took the belt door off, the belt was fine. I turned it over and took the red retainer arm out and then removed the screw on the white brush holder, the toothed belt was fine also. Somehow the machine had grabbed a carpet cord and wrapped it around the pulley where the toothed belt and the flat belt both attach. The spindle just wouldn't turn. After removing the carpet thread, everything worked fine again.

Brushes won't turn and vacuum will not pick up sprayed cleaner


There's a Capt. Obvious fix to check before you go any farther. Like many vacuum cleaners, the brushes on the Bissell carpet cleaners, by design, only spin when the handle is not locked in the upright position, so be sure to plug it in, turn it on, and depress the foot pedal to lower the handle while watching the brushes one more time to be sure that the fix isn't that easy.

If the brushes still won't spin with the handle in the unlocked position, lift the handle back up into the locked position, power off and unplug the Bissell, and look down and see if either of the two belts that make the brushes spin are broken, as a broken belt, or a belt that's come off the track, is the next most likely problem. Both belts must be unbroken and in the right place for the roller brushes to spin.

These belts can be seen in the clear plastic pieces on either end of the roller brushes. If you're having trouble locating them, **with the Bissell unplugged so the brushes won't suddenly start spinning and hurt your hand**, try spinning the brushes with your fingers while watching for the belts. They're black, about the thickness of two quarters, and the bigger one of the two (on the left end of the roller brushes, as you face the front of the Bissell), is just big enough to fit around both roller brushes. The smaller belt, goes around the back roller brush on the right and to a smaller cog wheel behind it. If you see a broken belt, or a belt off the track, that's your problem.

Here's a video you can watch for free on Bissell's website that tells how to replace a belt. I'm sure the belts can be ordered online somewhere or found at some Bissell dealers or repair shops. Note, again, the two belts are different. If only one is broken, be sure to order the correct one.

If the belts are intact and in the right place, does the metal cog wheel behind the roller brush right turn when the Bissell is on and the handle is dropped? If not, then the motor that turns that cog wheel must be burned out.

V1917n shark vacuum won't run


Mine did the same thing, actually both of them did. I had ordered two at the same time. I love these vacuums. They are so convenient to use and do a terrific job, at least until they acted up and did not want to run.

The first one would power up for a second or two and then quit and the three lights would flash. I tried everything to get it to work. I switched batteries and the charger cord with the new one, but still it did the same thing. So, I opened my second new one up and began using it. I worked for several months and then just here a couple of days ago it too began acting just like the first one did.

I took the corner brush off and then the rotator brush off and removed all the hair, strings, and etc., from around the brushes and also all the areas of the vacuum where any could be at. I put it all back together and it turned for several seconds and then the three lightw would flash again.

I had given up on them working again and was going to be boxing then both up and send back for replacements and was looking at buying another brand of cordless rechargeable sweeper. I had found one to buy, but still I knew that I would miss the Shark vacuums.

Well, tonight I took the second one apart again and looked at areas where I might have missed any hair or strings that might have wound around anything that might keep the brush from turning. I found some wound around the rotator brush end piece that is on the side opposite to the belt. At first I thought that a rubber gasket was worn that fit over the little metal rod that is at the end of the rotator brush, but when it still would not run, then I was thinking that the belt needed to be changed.

I have read somewhere, where someone said that it was hard to change the belts. Well, with the Shark that I have, which has three speeds and the handle that drops down in the middle so that you can vacuum under beds and etc, it is easy to change. There is a tab that you have to push that is next to the wheel on the belt side of the underside of the vacuum, and it opens to reveal the belt.

Well, when I opened it----------there was a tremendous lot of fibers and hair wrapped around the belt wheel and in the chamber leading up to the wheel that the belt attaches to the rotator brush. After taking the belt off the bottom wheel and cleaning all the hair and fibers off it and removing all the rest in the chamber, I put everything back together and it powered up and ran just like it did when I first got it.

I also got the first one working also. I don't have to send them back and have to wait a long time for replacements. Just a word of advice------------keep the rotator brush clean and the area around the belt at the bottom and anywhere else where hair and strings can wrap around. Keep a check on it weekly and it might keep them running.

Vacuum smells like burning rubber when on, no suction, leaving black marks on carpet


Usually when my vacuum smells like burning rubber, the belt needs to be changed and that is very easy to do. You just need to remove the the screws that hold in the rotator and put in a new belt. When the belt needs to be changed the vacuum will not pick up anything and this could make it seem like there is no suction. I hope this helps!

Check the brush roll ends, make sure they turn freely, if not then replace it. The belt may look ok, but they stretch after a short time and should be replaced.

Hoover elite belt change model number U4245


real simple you have to articulate the belt a little sideways and the belt should slide right between the pulley and the plastic.

Hope this helps.

Pushing it feels like someone keeps pressing a brake


Well what you said about the wheels could be the problem. But it also could be the belt, if it hasn't been changed, or is a few months old, it may have stretched so as not to turn the brush roll, whitch would make push hard. The brush roll is what will pull the vacuum, so if the belt is bad, or the bristles of the brush roll are worn down, they need replacing.
