If no suction usuallly means a clog, either in the hose and the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Sometimes if the belt is stretched, it won't turn the brush roll under load and it would seem like there is no suction.

The bristles will not turn when vacume is on and I try to vacume


Alot of those vaccums have a little drive belt on them. You might look for that. Also some string might be caught on the side of the brushes.

My Vacmaster Pro 130 does not vacuum. What is wrong?


Karen, I am the social media coordinator for ARY VacMaster. Most times when this problem arises with a new machine, it's because there are packing spacers on the under side of the lid that weren't removed. Pull those off and try again. If that doesn't work, Give our technical support department a call at (800) 821-7849. You can always "like" us on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/aryvacmaster) and ask questions to us directly there too. Hope this helps. You can contact me there for quicker answers. :-)

The cleaning head of the vacume does not lock into position when I pick up the vacume, therefore when I raise the vacume th cleaning head just lays down.


The mechanism that locks the head into place is broke. Prob a plastic tab that broke off from so much use.

The vacuum wont **** up anything anymore, and a rubber belt is now visible. What can I do to fix it?


i presume the vacume is a upright type. if the belt is visible i am also presuming the belt has broken, so turn the vacume up on its end so you can see the roller, you may have to take out a few srews to tak the base plate off which is covering the roller, take this off and you should see how the system works, the belt attaches to the moter spindle and then around the brush to turn it. take the brush out you should only need to pull it clean it and then go toyour local spares shop with the model number of your vacume and get a new belt, they cost about £1.00 each, put it back together and it should work....good luck.

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

Bissell turbo revolution


you can wash that sponge filter by hand but you must let it dry compleatly before putting it back in the machine, I found a filter pack for the lift off vacume at walmart, make sure teh bottom filter is clean as well. the lift off vacume has 3 filters there is one filter in the tray under the dirt cup, one in the top cup, and the hepa filter in the back the 2 foam filters must be clean or you can have reduced suction, the lift off vacume I have I found thrown away because they never cleaned it outthe brush was dirty and full of strings the belt was worn, the hose under the vacume was full and stopped up the hose in the back was compleatly stopped up all filters were compleatly clogged, and the hepa filter was missing entirely. Not to insult you or anyone but i've found that a lot of people are jsut to lazy to clean their vacume out it fills up with dirt they throw it away and get a new one, i've gottten many like new vacumes for this reason, this bissell is working like brand new now. and I just replaced the belt and all filters in it saving me approx. 150.00 for a new one

My old vacume had the same problem - the wire had a 'plug' on both ends. 1 to the wall outlet and 1 to the vacume, which you could pull out of the vacume. It was making poor contact at the vacume and eventialy burned out (melted)
See if the plug/wire to the unit is removable, if so is it damaged?,
could need a cleaning, or it may not be pushed in all the way.

Good Luck
