Behind the brush will be a metal thing that spins when the vacuum runs. That's what the belt loops over with the other end around the brush. You can sometimes find the belts a places like wal mart.

The problem is that the belt has broken and needs to be replaced. In order to change the belt you need to disassemble the bottom of the vac foot in order to reach the brush roller. The belt goes from the roller to the motor belt pin. Once you open it up it will be obvious.Make sure you purchase the same size belt to replace the damaged one. Check you manual for step by step instructions. If you do not have the manual, it is available in pdf format, just search the web for it,

Bissel easy vac roller won't work


remove brush roll and clean any string, hair, or whatever from it. especially around the ends. you can also unscrew the ends and check for debris there also. when you put ends back on use a little wd40 to lube up the bearings. if that doesn't work replace brush and won't hurt to change belt

Bissell powerforce brush won't turn when powered


Hey, you may want to have check if the brush turns by hand without the belt in place. If the brush doesn't turn manually, you'll need to replace the brush.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website to assist you.

My Bissell 3130 Easy Vac Bagless vacuum makes a "rev sound when pulling back on the vacuum, never did this before i have taken apart and cleaned vacuum thoroughly, not sure what else i can do


The drive belt may be wornout/stretched and the act of pulling the vacuum backwards could be causing the belt to slip and the motor to rev up as a result.

Do you have a replacement belt you can try?

Brushes stopped rotating


Needs a new drive belt. Find the screws holding the bottom panel onto the floor section of the vac. take out those screws and you should see the motor and the brushes and a broken belt underneath the panel. Check that the brushes spin freely. If not you may have something like hair or string or something jamming the brush. If so cut out the obstruction and then rotate the brushes again and look to see if they rotate evenly, without wobbling because in some vacs if the brushes become jammed and run like that for a while sometimes it wears out the bearings or bushings holding the brush in place and if they are worn you need to replace those as well or when you replace the belt and run the vac it wont take long to break the belt again.

Debris getting stuck in vacuum hose


Check that the filters are completely clean. If there are clogged they would have to be washed and then dried to room temp (or a low temp tumble dryer, put the filters into a pillow case with a towel and install into the machine) Tip the bissell backwards to make sure the bottom bin is pushed and locked all the way in. Only when the two seals meet will you know that the bin has locked in properly. Unhook by prising the main hose at the back off to check for clogs as well as the main hose at the bottom and the main dust channel at the sole plate where the roller bar is. You may have to remove the bottom plate to check for any obstructions behind the brush bar.
I have the Easy vac myself. Its not an Easy machine to maintain when it gets clogged!

Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate


The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

Bissell 3510 Vac with loud noise but not belt


Did you check the brush roll, may have a problem with it. But you could have a problem with a motor bearing going bad, they getting loud, also if there is a problem with the motor fan, that may be the cause of it being loud. Bissell 3510 either is obsolete or is thw rong number, it doesn't come up at the Bissell site.
