First unplug the device...depending on the model you have there are two screws that hold the cover onto the unit. sometimes they are hidden behind the rubber wall guard and sometimes they are hidden in the random designs on top or even the bottom of the unit. you unscrew the screws (usually 2) and remove the plate. you should be able to see the drive belt now, remove and replace with the new one. (it would be a good idea to clean hair etc out while you are in there :) ) make sure it turns freely and replace the cover, screw it in. vacuum to your hearts content

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!

The belt p/n 0100623 broke - need instructions on how to replace it - we have Bissell ProHeat Powersteamer

I just replaced mine last night. 1) take off the top belt cover. 2) take the water and cleaning solution tanks out then lay the unit on the side so the bottom of the cleaner is facing you (water and solution may leak out so you might want to do this on an old towel). 3) On the same side of the machine as the belt cover but on the bottom you'll see an orange piece (at least it is on mine) that is held in with one philips screw. Take the screw out then slide the orange plastic piece out (might need a pliers to help). 4) there is a black cover over the brush belt that has a tab on it. Pull on the tab and the brush roller on that side will come out of its place. 5) You'll see a cogged belt that drives the brushes. Just slip that off the drive on the machine. You don't need to take it out completely - just off the drive. 6) Slip the new belt (p/n 0100623) in and on to drive. It goes "inside" of where the cogged belt goes. 7) Slip the cogged brush belt back on. 8) push the brush roller and black belt cover back into position. 9) slide the orange plastic piece in place (make sure the belt cover is held in place by it) and screw it back on. 10) flip the cleaner so it is on its wheels again. 11) pull the new belt over the metal drive and manually get it kind of centered. Make sure it isn't touching any protruding plastic. 12) plug in the cleaner and quickly turn it on and off while looking at the new belt. You should see it self center. 13) put the top belt cover back on 14) insert water and cleaner tanks. 15) get to work.

It'll take less than 10 minutes to make this fix (less than 5 probably).
