First, the word is "VACUUM." Second, it's obvoius that your motor is overheating. When's the last time you CLEANED THE FILTERS, per the operating instructions?

SOURCE: self propelled wind tunnel vacum will notpropell itself

Must be a Hoover, The flat belt may look ok but I am sure it has stretched to the point where under load it won't drive the wheels or the brush roll. Could also be a bad brush roll.

    Hi Jeannie,

    I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC28. From what you've described, it sounds as if something is obstructing the brushbar and causing it to shut off. Please follow the steps shown in the video below, and remove any threads, hair or other debris from around the brushbar and inside the cleaner head.

    This should resolve your issue, but if you need any further assistance, please call us free on 1-866-693-9766, or email askdysonUS@dyson.com so we can help.

    Kind regards,

    How to replace vacuum bag


    There should be snap levers on the sides or front of the unit. From there the top should pull up like the hood of a car. With the seals it may seam a little tough. Inside you will find the bag.

    My Fuller Brush FB90T Bagged Upright Vacuum shutdown during vacuuming. I allowed it to cool off for a 24 hours but it will now no longer restart. Is there a reset function?


    Check if there is debri at the bottom behind the roller where the dust gets sucked in. There is a reset button in this area. Press it with a needle or pen tip. Hold it for about 5 seconds.

    There is a overburn protection if their is obstruction in the hose due to which the vacuum shuts down. Resetting it will fix this issue

    Vacum shuts off


    If you have BISSELL vacuum, some of our models have a brush reset. Here are the instructions to turn it back on:

    If something becomes lodged in the foot and the

    brush shuts off, turn the cleaner off and unplug

    from the outlet. Remove the obstruction. The

    brush will automatically reset when the cleaner
    is plugged in and turned back on.

    Additionally, you could have dirty filters that are activating a thermal protector switch that shuts the vacuum off if the motor becomes too hot. If this is the case unplug the vacuum, clean any filters, clogs, or obstructions and wait 30 minutes for the unit to cool. Then plug the unit in and it should work. I hope this helps.

    The vacuum is not suctioning. Fuller FB 90T


    First replace the belt if it's over 6 months old. Stretch belts lose elasticity. It may still turn the brush roll but when vacuuming the carpet it may be slipping and not turning fast enough. Make sure bags and filters are good.

    The turbo brush attachment on my bissell cleanview helix suddenly wont spin. I bought this vacum a month ago. there is nothing wrong with the vacum otherwise.


    The turbo brush may just need to be cleaned. If hair or other large debris gets wrapped around the brush, it can prevent it from spinning. Since the top of the turbo brush is clear, you can look in and see if there is a lot of hair wrapped around the brush. If so, you can open it up by removing the two screws on the bottom of the brush and popping the clear cover off, then cleaning all the debris from the brush (scissors work well if its hard to get dog hair off). Be careful to see how the brush goes back together as you take it apart.

    If cleaning the brush doesn't fix it, the belt might be broken. As you're looking at the top of the brush, there is a little belt that goes from the brush itself to the large blue/green gear (it's red on some models) so that if you reach your hand in and turn the gear, the brush should spin. If this belt is broken or missing, it will need to be replaced. You can probably find a replacement belt online, or you can order a whole new turbo brush from the Bissell website for $24.99.

    When the power head is turned on it goes from green light to red light and stops. The belt is fine and there is no obstructions in the brush to stop it from turning.


    this will happen only when the brush or motor does not turn the right speed
    make sure to pull the end caps off the brush and clean any hairs or fibers from it
    the motor you can try and turn it by hand with out the belt on and see how free it is

    Sounds funny/shutting off after few minutes


    Yup! Clogged hose on the back of the cannister! Unit is designed to shut off for 30 minutes when this happens to protect your motor. Remove top of hose where debris enters the cannister through a filter above it, then remove the other end of the hose from the bottom of the back of the cannister, take it outside and use something long that'll fit inside the hose to force out all the clogged debris and hair through the top of the hose.

    Check the inlet by the brush roll for a clog, also check your hose for a clog. Usually when there is a clog, it is sensing an overfull bag and will shut down to protect the motor. If there are no clogs, then there could be a problem with the circuit board or motor.
