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.

Brush stopped working


The first thing to check, is to see if your belt has broken or not. This is the usual problem for the brush not turning. If you find that your belt is still intact and not even cracked, then you might have a bigger problem. As long as your motor is running and you can hear it running, I would definitely check the belt out first.
To do this...simply remove the cover on the bottom by removing the screws holding it on. It should slip off easily. This will give you access to the belt. Take your model number to the store and pick up a replacement belt. It's a good idea to keep an extra or two handy for these times. You can also order one from the manufacturer of your machine. Such as: Hoover.com. The cost is about the same. About $5.
Hope this was helpful.

The brush is not working when I turn the power on and the belt appears to be on and intact. How do I fix it?



This is actually a bad design by Bissell. Remove the Lift-Off portion of your vacuum cleaner. Down at the bottom, where the Lift-Off portion was sitting, you should see a small electrical plug part. What usually happens is this plug arc's, which causes it to burn the plug, and stop the power nozzle from spinning. If you see any black, or burning around this plug, take your vacuum back into Bissell, they will fix this, or give you a new vacuum for free. They don't even sell us their warranty stations this plug piece, you can only exchange it for a new vacuum.

If this is not burned, check the reset button for the brush, it's either located near the plug, or on the side of the brush portion of the vacuum.

I hope this was helpful to you.

The belt for the maain vaccume broke off and now with the new belt the roller will not work.


It sounds like your roller brush itself might be bad. Try holding the roller brush holding just the end caps with your finger tips, and spinning the roller. Does the roller spin freely? If no, this indicates that your roller brush's bearings have melted together. This is a common problem for Bissell vacuums, as they use cheaper plastic bearing caps. The roller brush is not covered under the warranty either.

When this part goes bad, this causes the belt to break almost immediately. If you tried replacing the belt, and it broke immediately, your roller brush has gone bad.

Here's a link to the Bissell LiftOff Revolution rollerbrush on our site;

Beater brush


Note: The brush will not rotate when the machine is locked in the upright position, because an internal micro-switch turns the brush motor off.

- Make sure brush switch on the handle is on.

- Check the belt through the clear brush cover. If this appears damaged or broken, take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have it replaced. If the belt is intact, please continue checking the following:
- Ensure both power switches are turned on when you check for brush rotation.
- Unplug the power cord and remove the handle completely. Slide handle back into the lower section of handle, ensuring the screw is in tight. If the handle is not aligned properly, this will affect the power of the brush motor.
- Look for debris wrapped around the brush (i.e. string, hair, fibers, etc.). When the machine is unplugged, cut away any visible hair, fibers or debris from the brush roller. This brush is NOT removable from the machine.
- If something has become lodged in the foot and the brush shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug this from the outlet. You can now remove the obstruction. The brush will automatically reset when the vacuum is plugged in and turned back on.

My Bissell liftoff Revolution won't turn on. Is


Vacuums are not usually fused, but may have a circuit breaker--look for a small protruding button that when pressed, resets the breaker. The plug on the end of the cord may have a wire broken within the plug--replace it with one from a hardware or home center. Another common problem is the power switch may have failed. Order a new one from an appliance parts house. Good luck!

The brush is not working anymore


Your drive belt is probably broken. They usually need to be changed every 6 to 12 months. If you haven't replaced the belt recently I would try that. You can get the belts you need through this link and also view the manual which has step by step instructions on how to change the belt. hope this helps!

Bissell Lift Off Broken Belt and Brush Roller


I had the same problem. I found that the brush actually melted to the end cap (the one with the square/ovalish end). I was able to pull it off with some force and applied some WD-40, but that only worked for one more use. The brush has again melted to the end cap and it is too deformed to try and fix. I suppose I will have to search for a new brush, but this model obviously has some innate flaws.
