If you feel you are following the directions and still not getting the motor drive, check for broken belts and/or frozen beater brush. Will be happy to go further if this solution does not solve your problem. Paul

How to repair windtunnel hoover agitator that will not turn


Likely a broken belt. Also check the agitator brush roll bearings (in either end under the end caps) for hair, strong, thread, etc. as this will make the brush roll harder to turn and wear/break belts prematurely. If all these check okay, then observe the tensioning roller that causes the V belt (runs from the idler pulley to the brush roller) to be sure it is swinging down when the handle is released to hold tension on the belt, causing it to rotate. These tensioning rollers can break, but often are locked into the "Bare Floor" setting without the user noticing. Slide the carpet brush roll selector (located on top, next to the floor height slide adjustment) back and forth and make certain it is all the way into the "Carpet" setting to allow the tensioning roller to engage. [Note: The tensioning roller is always retracted (in the neutral or off position) when the handle is in the upright position. You must release the handle to allow this tensioing assembly to engage.]

Roller brush does not engage


. Turn unit on the side and inspect brush assembly for dirt, hair, etc. , also check the condition of drive belt , be sure that it is engaged with brush roller and turning freely. Also check the option of the'suction release' valve near handle which may free brush movement. good luck. a1fe9acb-d948-4a5d-a15d-619a901ba149.jpg 72bf93b5-160b-4ddd-8f56-3515fb5b8a7e.jpg 72bf93b5-160b-4ddd-8f56-3515fb5b8a7e.jpg

Bissel cleaner won't stop spraying water




Remove the handle and check for continuous spray.
After handle is removed, check to make sure the valve is not stuck in the down position. If the valve is stuck in the down position, push on it manually to get it to come back up. If it is stuck you may need to get a new handle for your unit. This handle is for a variety of the ProHeat models http://www.bissell.com/parts/?sc=part&productid=2775&partid=4449&cid=ccsocial

Check to make sure it will properly fit your model if you need a new handle.

Beater Bar Does not turn


YOU MAY HAVE A POSSIBLE BAD BELT OR THE MOTOR THAT RUNS THE BAR MAY BE BAD, THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THE SWITCH THAT TURNS ON THE BAR MAY BE BAD. OR A WIRE COULD HAVE COME OFF THE MOTOR. i THINK YOU DO KNOW THAT THE BEATER BAR DOES NOT RUN WHEN ON WOOD FLOORS.

Pedal does not engage anymore


I have the same problem. You will need to replace the handle release pedal, part number 8174899, $7.99 plus tax & shipping. Check with Sears Parts. It's a single screw that holds it in place.
