Be sure your belt isn't slipping on the beater bar. Might be time to get a new belt or at least take off the beater bar and clean everything. Dust can cause it to slip

Is there a wrong way to attach the belt and the sweeper?? My Hoover Runabout is making a rubbing noise, like the sweeper is hitting something, and it's real hard to push.


take off the belt . clean any hair from brush roller make sure movement smooth . re position belt and move by hand to make sure roller is not skew , , rubber is riding sideways and causing friction .

The brush on my bissell prolite multicyclonic vacuum won't turn. It seems like it is jammed, but I checked for anything that might be stuck in it and don't see anything. Is there a reset button?


I had the same problem with my old Bissell sweeper ( I bought a new rotating brush each time this happened then I bought a new sweeper the next time it happened -last Dec. 2009.) Unfortumately I bought a new Bissell and now it is happening again to the new sweeper. I do clean the brush often but what has happened is that the hair somehow gets inside the brush via the end caps???This sweeper does have end caps that can be removed for cleaning --although not that easily when they are locked up. I did this yesterday but before I could remove the end cap I had to use a pin, scissors, etc. anything that I could get into the groove to remove lint, etc. that caused it to lock up. Then when I got the end cap to move a little, I pried it off. I found hair, etc. inside where the metal rod is which I don't think should be happening --I used a seam ripper also to try to get some out. I have owned many different brands of sweepers and have never seen this problem before. Then, I put the end cap back on, however, it was not smooth on the inside--almost like it had melted when it locked up. So, the sweeper brush now moves but it is noisy. I guess I will buy another brush -- but this seems ridiculous for a new sweeper--the customer service rep told me that the brush does wear out.... but not on a sweeper that is less than a year old. There is no wear and tear on the brushes. Oh, and the CSR told me that they haven't had people call about this problem --I am guessing they are just buying new brushes or new sweepers. The sweeper def. has great suction but I think other brands do also..

No drive, have to push the sweeper


These machines don't have power drive. You may find it harder to push when the brushes aren't turning but there is no drive on this vacuum.

I have a dirt devil bagless cannister,machine will start and vacuum nicely then shut itself off probably beczause it is over heating and will not start again for at least an hour. Does this machine have a...


The vac very likely has a thermostat located near the suction motor that will stop the motor to keep it from burning itself out. These thermostats rarely go bad. You need to look for a blockage starting with the power nozzel (carpet sweeper) all the way to the canister. Take the hose from the canister and power nozzel and drop a coin in one side and see if it comes out the other end. If not, try pushing a broom stick thru to move the blockage to the other end and get it out with needle nose plyers. Don't use a coat hanger!
You can take the carpet sweeper loose from the wands and look into the elbow (part that swivels) for a blockage. It all has to do with air flow to keep the motor cool.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. there are not too many sweeper that actually get under the sofa when most sofas go almost to the floor and some uprights go flat and some sweepers but if the height of the sweeper or vacuum exceed the height of the sofa underneath then either one or the other cannot clean under the sofa if the height exceeds the sofa height limit without leaning your sofa back or lifting it up to clean.

Thanks, Don the Vac Man
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Vacuum will not turn on


Of course it could have nothing at all to do with the sweeper. Has anyone checked the outlet you tried to use? It may be at fault. Someone may want to check the circuit breaker box for a blown breaker leading to that particular outlet. If that is not the problem, you should be able to call for repair services as the NSS Pacer is an industrial sweeper and must have a pretty good warranty.

Agitator stops when sweeper is pulled backward


If you have made no changes to the vacuum's setup and are using it on same carpet you have previously used it on with no problem, then the most likely cause is the agitator/beater bar's drive belt is worn or on some models may have a tension adjustment which is set too loosely. This can also be caused by having the vacuums height adjustment set to low for the carpet or flooring you are using it on, causing to much drag when the vacuum is pulled backwards for the agitator to overcome.

The vast majority of agitators turn in a forward direction, as if it would pull the vacuum forward, when you pull the vacuum backwards the drag is increased.

So...First check height adjustment (a no cost fix), then check out the tension adjustment (if present on you model, some engage when top of vacuum is tilted back after stepping on the release pedal) Lastly, consider changing belt especially if you have had the vacuum awhile or if it gets a fair amount of use or it you seem to need to use it on a low height setting all the time to vacuum up debris.

Hope this helps!
