If you are unsure about where it goes it may have a diagram in the owners manual. When you say you saw a belt in a compartment are you sure that it is not an extra belt you are seeing as they often give an extra in the machine kept in a compartment like you are speaking ofI fthe roller bar no loger spinsit is most likely the belt. when you checked to see if the roller was spinning did you release the ndle from the upright position and let it down in to the position you would have it in if you were using it. This engages the motor that runs the roller and you must let the handle down for it to engage.The belt that runs the roller is accessible by taking the screws out of the bottom of the head and the top cover should lift off and this is where you will find the belt and motor that runs it.Have a go at what I have said and see where this gets you . If you don't get far write back and we will go through it another wat step by step. don't get discouraged you will figure it out just go slowly and don't lose the screws...lol. Good luck

Bissell carpet cleaner belt fell off, how do I replace it


Which belt? There are 2 on a Pro Heat. The pump belt which is pretty straight forward to put on. If it's the brush belt you will probably have to take the brush off. Re-rail the belt and then put the brush back in the holder arms while keeping the belt in the groves. BUT if the belt came off in the first place it's probably shot. Before you go to the trouble, get a new belt.

Cleaning brushes wont rotate


I understand how important the brushes are when cleaning.

You may want to the check the pump belt for breakage for the brush belt and pump belt work in conjunction with the pump.

If you're still experiencing difficulty, you may want to have your machine inspected at one of our Authorized Service Centers. Here's a quick link to help you locate one in your area:

I have the bissell pro heat turbo microban cleaner. It's about 2 1/2 years old and maybe used 8 times. The brushes do not work and it's not suctioning up the water. I've checked the belt on...


You already said it, so check the carbon brushes. Once it is no longer able to push the rotor or stator it need to be replace. Carbon brushes are customized at the machine shop, so you should bring it so that you have a sample of the brushes itself. Just be observant when disassembling the motor so that you put it back to exact place.
Thanks for asking.

Anyone know why my Bissell Proheat 2X Turbo Model 9300's brushes won't turn anymore


If the Brushes don't rotate, & you have two brushes; 1). Turn unit on side. ( Make sure unit is up-pluged) 2). Rotate the front brush roller, if the second roller moves at same time, 3). Locate a small ribbed belt that goes from the further back roller, to a small ribbed pully. (Gates belt #177-3m5) ( on side under a clear cover) The belt may not be broken, but may have carpet fuzz / lint covering the belt ribs, causing the belt to slip. If that belt is OK and you find that the small pully doesn't turn the belt/rollers, the problem is with a small internal direct drive motor, that drives the brush rollers. At this point return the unit, as Bissell has a design defect & is using cheap parts.

Brush not moving in Bissell pro-heat


if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

How do i put belts on a bissell powerbrush steam cleaner?


If this is the model i'm thinking of. Make sure the units unplugged from the wall. There should be about six phillips head screws to remove. The motor should now be exposed. This is a good time to clean up the inside of the unit. Use liquid wrench or WD-40 and lubricate any moving parts. Make sure the brush is in good shape some require you to rotate or flip the brush to even out the wear. I hope this has been helpful.... : )

Bissell carpet cleaner brushes won't turn


Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.

If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.
