I had the exact same thing happen to me. Take the bottom off, with only using a phillips head, and see if it melted the plastic that lets the beater bar rotate. If so, just replace the obvious parts damaged by going to Bissell.com. I just ordered my three parts for around $40.00, including shipping (three parts).

The brush has stopped rotating so vacume won't pick up anything.


Without knowing the brand and model number, I can't assist too much. However, most all of them have a belt that turns the rotating brushes or "beater bar".

It looks like a large black rubber band, and does wear out at times causing this condition. It would be located under a removable panel on the bottom of the unit.

Air driven turbo brush


Is this the Lightning model? How old is it? You may have to just replace the belt.

Also, 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.

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.

How do you get the beater brush to start rotating, the dyson was just cleaned and the beater brush won't rotate


Sounds like the rubber drive band has not been replaced properly to drive the brush and/or the brush was not properly cleaned. You can find the manual here:

My hoover F745 900 steamvac brushes will not spin.


If you are handy with a screwdriver undo the casing to access the roller. Once open usually about 4-5 screws you will see that the drivebelt ( rubber band ) has broken. This is the piece you need to replace. Usually most electrical store selling cleaners have these. Take the piece along or get the part number from the manual and replace it yourself. Cheaper than having a tech do it at $90 an hr plus the $5 part

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.
