I have a bissell lift off and the brushes wont spin, i think it maybe because of the internal switch that tells the vacuum that the canister is installed is bad. is there a replacement part for that or do i have to get a new vacuum?

Hi,

If you take out the brush roll, holding the ends, make sure that it spins freely, if not, replace it. Belts stretch after a short time of use and need to be replaced often.So you could either have a bad brush roll and/or a stretched belt.

If you are sure that the internal switch is bad, the only way would be to contact Bissell :-

Hope i helped you.

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.

I have a lift-off bissell vaccuum and as I vacuum often the power brush will turn off and on. How can I fix this?


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuum's belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Brush will not spin. filters are clean, no clogs, belt is fine. remove canister, it works fine plenty of suction.


Probably a good idea to remove the brush and clean as best you can. Add some WD40 at each end by the plastic clips and turn by hand until they move freely. Reassemble being sure the belt is on properly.

Bruch will not spin


Make sure the brush switch on the canister is in the on position. The handle must be reclinded for the brush to spin.

The power comes on but the brush doesn't. It has


If the belt is in good condition then your belt drive motor could have burned out the brushes in the motor itself something for a pro to do. but with an ohms meter you can rule out that the motor is bad if you test the power wires to the motor and there is no power feeding it , if power is there motor is bad if not go to on switch they some times brake inside.

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.

Bissell liftoff brush wont turn


Check the connections on the bottom of the lift off part, and the matching connector on the bottom section. If bad, take it to a warranty repair shop for Bissell. Other wise it could be the brush motor that is bad, or the switch is bad.
