Question about Bissell Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Bissell 3760-2 and while vacuuming it just shut off. The vacuum was plugged in and was on. Thought it might have quit because of the filters, so I cleaned them out and still does not work. Please help I'm totally clueless about this thing. Thanks Tony

Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Most Bissell vacuums have Thermal Motor Protection which is a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting. When the motor cools for approximately 30 minutes, the thermal protector automatically resets and cleaning may continue. If the cleaner will not turn on or the thermal protector continues to activate, your cleaner may need servicing.note: The thermal protector controls the main vacuum motor only, not the brush motor. If the thermal protector activates, the brush will continue to operate normally; however, there will be no suction.

You can purchase a wide variety of high quality Bissell replacement parts for your Bissell vacuum direct from Think Crucial with free shipping and an exclusive 10% coupon for Fixya.com readers, use code: FIXYA10

The next thing that you need to do is replace the belt. Even if it's not cracked or worn, many times it's too loose, and it won't turn to rotor efficiently.

Believe it or not, just replacing the belt may be all that you need to do!

It is because the belt is worn or stretched and needs to be replaced. Here are the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

SOURCE: I have a bissell vacuum

The filter if its dirty in gives bad smell.Also if it gets worn out or very old it gives bad smell.Many other users too have noticed this bad smell.Replacing the filter helped many other users too. The worst part being smell of the filter once it goes bad it stays bad and fills the room with a nasty rotten smell. ----------- Also you try cleaning the filters.As you mentioned in your question that you have already tried this but try to clean the filter as per the instructions mentioned in the service manual.And see if that reduces the bad smell. The manual specifically states not to use a mild cleaning agent while washing the filters, you may wash the filters in cold or warm water using a scented mild detergent, and make sure to remove any excess water in the filters since this is what normally creates the horrible smelling odor after it has been washed and dried.Also let the filter get completely dried up before you refit the filter again.If its fitted wet the bad odor smell comes.You can use hairdryer to dry the filter quickly.Check out if this is helping.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: Model #3760-2 Bissell upright vacuum-

Is the noise coming from the belt area, ie. beater bar, or does it sound like it is coming from the motor itself? It is possible there is something caught in the brush roller.
When you turn the roller off, does the noise go away?

Brush won't turn bissell vacuum 3760-4


No there is no separate fuse, when you did this you caused the drive motor to overheat, this destroyed the belt as you have seen and likely burned out the motor for the brush head..
