Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You should check on the owner’s manual to see how it goes together or call the Simplicity customer service line listed below to see what goes where. It’s been awhile since I have worked on a simplicity vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

The beater motor will not turn. Is there a fuse? I've tried the reset, but this still doen't work. My wife smelled a burning smell and quit using.


Sounds like you need a new belt.Turn it upside down and locate the screws on the bottom.Remove those screws,and then the plate they hold on(if there are no screws then the plate will be held by clips just pull it off,carefully.The brush now may be lifted out,but before you do.The belt fits around the brush.Find which side,if the belt is broken and still in the vacuum,it should still be on the side it came from.If the belt is not still in the vacuum,there is a groove in the brush about one inch wide.That is where the belt fits.The other end of the belt fits on a small wheel about 4-5 inches back from the brush.There may be a small plate over the belt and wheel if so just remove it and you will see what I am talking about.

Changing belt on u5063-930


ok its fairly simple the belt you need is 38528-040. Start by first removing the little slide button from the height adjustment switch. just pull strait up and it will pop off. it will need to be out of the way. turn over the vacuum and there will be 2 spring clips that release the bottom cover and give you access to the brushroll. now you must remove the top cover. there are 4 clips, 2 on each side. Use a flat head screw driver to pry one clip at a time, it should pop fairly easy. now that you have all the clips free release the handle assy and the hood will lift off. inspect brushroll for wear and free rotation. if its bad replace it. now install the belt on the brushroll first, install brushroll and pass belt through belt channel. Stretch belt with your hands until you successfully get it on the motor shaft. (Its supposed to be pretty tight i guarantee its the propper belt) rotate brushroll to properly align belt then snap top cover, and bottom brushroll cover back in place and dont forget to put the small button back on top of the hood.

My brush is no longer working on my bissell healthy home vac. when i try to turn it on it makes a high pitched squealing sound. I'm pretty sure it needs a new belt but my husband is having trouble getting...


Hi,
According to Bissel, they should be standard phillips screws. Nowever - things change.
This is a general guide from Bissel for belt change -
BELT CHANGE _ CLICK HERE

Check your model number on that site for exact details.

If the screws are Torx (star) or other security screws, tool bits are available from Screwfix -
SECURITY SCREW BITS
That fit standard loose-bit screwdrivers.

Hope that solves your problem.
Thank you.

My brush will not turn, and the brush control is stuck on "off"


I have had problems with the belts on my Mach 5 overheating (smell of burning rubber) and also with the motor overheating and shutting down.
I learned the hard way that one of the issues might be that the roller/brush on the bottom of the unit has a metal bearing inside the roller/brush that can become clogged with hair (both human and pet hair) which effects performance of the unit.
It’s fairly easy to fix.
Lay the vacuum on the floor so that you can see the roller/brush. Then remove the phillip head screws that hold the protective plastic plate over the roller/brush. (There are about 6 screws that hold this plastic protective plate in place) Also, you will be removing the (1) screw that also holds the plastic plate over the belts. There are (2) belts that you can remove and when in doubt replace these (2) belts for around $9.00.
Once you have the protective plastic plate off that covers the roller/brush disconnect the belt is around the roller. Take the roller and cut off any hair that is wrapped around the roller. Next, grab the roller by each end and twist the ends caps and (1) of the ends will unscrew. Once you have unscrewed one of the ends remove any hair or dust that is trapped under this cap. (Be careful not to lose the small metal washer that sit on top of the bearing)You will notice under this cap is a metal bearing that can become clogged and jammed with hair. The hair should come out fairly easy and allow the brush to spin fairly easy once you have screwed the end caps back in place test that it spins freely. If it doesn’t spin freely replace the roller/brush with a new one for about $23.00.
When you put the belts back on the thick rubber one (Belt # 40201-271) has probably become stretched and should be replaced for about $3.00. The small diameter belt that goes over the roller/brush probably does not usually need to be replaced and does not usually fit very tight. I have heard that people will take the small roller/brush belt and turn it upside down to get a better fit.
I just did this on my Mach 5 and it runs like a new machine. I did end up replacing the roller/brush head.
Hopefully you will find this useful.

Replace belt


Take the head off the vacuum, look at back. You will see two metal latches, the latches hold the bottom of the head on. If the latches are stiff, you can use a small hammer to tap the in the right direction, don't go crazy. The bottom will swing away towards the front. The beater bar can then be pulled out and a new belt slipped on. Replace the beater bar, be sure to get the black ring at one end installed so it is line with the little light that tells you the bar is turning. Replace the metal bottom, if you have trouble getting it to seat check that you have the front side seated properly over the 'bumps' on the front of the head. Lock the clips back in. Turn the finger to catch & pick up the belt so you may place it back on the vacuum.

Changing Belt on Riccar 8650


Greetings from GoVacuum,

I will attempt to walk you through the belt change on your Riccar 8955 upright vacuum cleaner. I have taken pictures for you for each step to ensure that it's done properly. What you'll need to have handy for this repair;

- Phillips Head Screw Driver
- Riccar 4000 / 8000 Series Belt
- Riccar 8000 Series Roller Brush With Clutch Assembly (only if the brushes have worn down, not necessary if brushes are still long)

Step 1: Make sure the vacuum cleaner is unplugged, and turn the vacuum cleaner upside down so the bottom plate is upwards. It's easiest to do on a work bench or counter top.


bbed7f9.jpg

Step 2: Unscrew the two metal screws on the metal bottom plate with your Phillips head screw driver, and remove the bottom plate from the vacuum cleaner so the belt is completely exposed with the roller brush


Step 3: Remove the belt guard that sits to the left of the roller brush, and is a metal part that protects any dirt & debris from going over to the belt. Here's a picture of that part being removed;
011205a.jpg

Step 4: Remove the Rug / Floor actuator arm from the clutch on the right hand side of the roller brush. Simply pull the metal actuator arm to the left of the brush and out of the circle that it sits in. Here's a picture of that;

0a5aafc.jpg

Step 5: Once you have removed the actuator arm for the clutch, as well as the belt guard, lift straight up on the roller brush and remove the roller brush from the vacuum cleaner:


d6b6384.jpg
Step 6: Once you have removed the roller brush, and the old belt from the vacuum cleaner, take one new belt and wrap it around the metal pin in the back of vacuum cleaners agitator housing. Here's a picture of where that pin is located with the belt wrapped around it;


c0bc5cf.jpg
Step 7: Once you have the belt wrapped around the metal pin (this is the shaft to the motor that actually spins the belt), but the other end of the belt through your new roller brush;


1e0386b.jpg
Step 8: There is a specific way that the roller brush has to be inserted. If the roller brush is not put in properly, this can cause all sorts of problems including the brush not spinning, and continuously having to replace belts. You can see on the end cap of the roller brush (the right side where the belt rides) that there is two little teeth that protrude out of the end cap as well as an indentation on the opposite side;

04e3743.jpg
Step 9: With the roller brush inserted through the belt, position the two teeth facing downwards. You can see in the vacuum cleaner where the roller brush sits, a little groove down inside of the housing. These two teeth need to straddle that groove. Also make sure that the little ring, or circle that the clutch actuator arm sits into, is facing upwards completely. It should be directly on top of the two teeth. Stretch the belt using the roller brush as leverage down into the agitator housing of the vacuum cleaner, making sure that the two teeth are facing downwards straddling the little groove. After the brush is back into the vacuum cleaner, take the metal actuator arm from the rug / floor switch, and insert it back into the metal ring (or hole) on the roller brush;
88581e1.jpg
Step 10: Replace the metal belt guard that rests to the left of the belt. You'll notice on the belt guard that there are two little 90 degree notches on both sides. These notches need to face towards the belt or to the right. Here's a picture of the belt guard being put back into place;

dfaabe8.jpg

Step 11: After inserting the belt guard back into the vacuum, turn the vacuum cleaner over so the top of the agitator housing is facing you. Change the the rug / floor switch from bare floors to the carpet setting, and the turn the vacuum upside again so the brush and belt are exposed:


8cd34ee.jpg
Step 12: With the vacuum set to the carpet setting, pull the belt forwards to ensure that the brush is spinning freely. If the belts do not spin freely, repeat steps 2-10.

d433465.jpg
Step 12: There is a flap that can be opened after the metal bottom plate has been removed, that will give you more access to the motor shaft. Make sure that this flap is closed;

e6dde78.jpg
Step 13: The last tricky part can be reinstalling the metal bottom plate. There is a little lip on the front of the vacuum cleaner that the edge of the bottom plate has to slide under for it to be installed properly. A lot of people just install the bottom plate over top of this lip, and this prevents the brushes from hitting the carpet as low as if the bottom plate is correctly installed. Here's a picture of the lip with the bottom plate in the backgroud;


a34ed7a.jpg
Step 14: Slide the metal bottom plate into the lip on the vacuum cleaner, and fasten the screws back into the bottom plate to secure it. The lip is a little tricky, but after doing it just once, you'll have no problems in the future changing your belt.

Here's a picture of the bottom plate installed INCORRECTLY with the bottom plate over top of the lip;

fc1c13a.jpg
Here's a picture of the CORRECT way to install the bottom plate:

I hope that this repair solution is helpful to you in installing the belt properly. If you found this helpful, please be sure to click the 4 Thumbs Up Icons in the top right hand corner of the solution. Feel free to request a clarification of the repair if you have any questions about this repair, or other repairs. I'm always happy to answer any questions.

Thank you very much,

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Knowing the brand name and model number for the vacuum but I can give you a generic way of changing the belt. You 1st need to remove the bottom plate by screws, levers or clips, then you can get @ the belt, if not then you should remove the top cover and then you can get @ the belt. 1st remove the belt from the brushroll and install the new belt on the pulley side of the brushroll and then use a belt puller or a screwdriver with a bend on the end and then stretch the belt onto the motor pulley and then track the belt in a straight line so that is running in a straight line. Replace the bottom plate and the belt change should be done. Please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.

So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

My brushes are not turning. We checked the gear and it is turning, but brushes aren't


Take the brushroll out and see if it turns freely just by holding the end. Also make sure that the belt isn't stretched out. Also, before putting the head on the vac, you have to pick the belt up on the "finger" that's in the head. You can verify this by looking into the circle that's cut out of the metal. When the head is affixed to the vac, then turn the belt lifter back around to the proper position and all should be well. If you still need help, you may call us at 1-866-509-1952. Thanks
