That would be the motor shaft, if it has power to it and is froze up, you will have to replace the motor.

Is the beater brush on the Bissell Helix NOT to spin on bare floor setting?


Hey Tony! The brush does continue to rotate when using the vacuum on the bare floor setting.

Bissell PowerForce Turbo: The motor spindle becomes very hot while spinning, causing the new belt to burn and break. Is this because the motor is overheating?


Something is preventing the brush roller from turning even though it seeems to be OK when not in contact with the floor. The motor shaft is spinning on one spot of the belt, causing the heating, the smell, and eventual belt failure. I have had brush rollers that appeared OK but proved to have pet hair jammed between the end caps and the roller itself causing rotation to be very difficult

Brush roller not spinning. belt, spindle okay. roller taken out and cleaned, no thread. replaced but no dice. ???


Use only BISSELL Style 10 Replacement Belts (#32074) in your BISSELL PowerForce Bagless.
  1. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.
  2. With Rotating Floor Brush removed from vacuum cleaner, grasp old Drive Belt and remove from Motor Pulley. Discard old Drive Belt.
  3. Place new Drive Belt over Motor Pulley and stretch other end over Rotating Floor Brush in the space between the bristles.
  4. Place ends of Rotating Floor Brush down into slots on sides as shown.
  5. Turn Rotating Floor Brush by hand several times in the direction of Motor Pulley. If properly installed, Drive Belt will center itself on Rotating Brush.
  6. Reposition Brush Cover and snap back into place. Check to be sure all three latches are secured.
  7. When you turn on the vacuum, do you see the motor that spins the belt spinning at the bottom? If not, it sounds like you may have a burned out motor.

The brush won't spin - but the silver stem it on is spinning


The belt may look fine but it is stretched. The silver stem is the motor shaft. Replace the belt with a genuine one by model #. It will be 20-30% smaller. Check that your brush roll turns freely by hand. Pop the nylon caps off the end to remove hair and thread.

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.

Bissel Cleanview II (bagless 12 amp)


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

What it sounds like is that your belt has either broken, or has been stretched to a point where the brushes won't spin. What you'll need to do is turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and turn on the vacuum. Are your brushes spinning at all? If your brushes are spinning, when you put the machine on the carpet, does the brush stop spinning, or slow down noticeably?

If either one of these happen, you'll need to replace the belt. Most Bissell uprights will use Bissell Style 7,9, and 10 belt (3 styles, 1 belt). The best way for you to find out what belt your machine takes, is to refer to your owners manual. You may also email me your model number, and I'd be happy to ship you the correct belt.

The instructions on how to replace the belt are also diagrammed and explained at the above link.
There is also a troubleshooting page on page 14.

Please email me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to answer any question you may come across.
