To replace the Brush Belt:

You will need a Phillips head screwdriver.

1. Turn the machine OFF and unplug from the wall outlet.

2. Step on the release pedal to lay the handle down on the floor.

3. Remove the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle and set them aside.

4. Turn the machine over to expose the brush.

5. Look for the red retainers, which hold the black brush arms and gear-type brush belt in place. Unscrew the two Phillips head screws. Set these parts aside.

6. Loop the replacement brush roll belt around the brush end and the red pulley with the ridges.

7. Alternate holding each brush arm in place while replacing the red retainers.

8. Replace the Phillips head screws and turn until snug.

9. Turn the machine right side up to replace the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle.

Please help! my cleaner will roll on a flat surface but when I try to roll on the carpet it is jumpy like. I checked the setting and it is in the right place.


It could be that the belt or belts are worn and when you put the brush against the resistance of the carpet the belt slips and causes it to be jumpy. If you haven't changed the belt lately I would try that. You can get the belts for this model here:

My Bissell carpet cleaner model #1697-W will not dispense the cleaning solution and will not **** the water back up--also need to know how you get to the belt on the machine?


The drive belt for the pump is located under a cover on the front right side as you look for the front of the machine. Just lift it up and the belt will be obvious. If it is not sucking then make sure that the dirty water tank is empty and that all the filters are clean and the front of the machine is not clogged with fibres, dirt or hair. Also check pre and post motor filters and clean them if required. Then check the mix control is working OK to allow fluid to flow out of the machine and not switched off. Bissell's are simple machines.

How do you change the belt on my Bissell steam cleaner Model #1692


There are two belts. One is a geared drive belt that goes on the pump and the other is a flat belt that goes on the roller brush. The roller brush belt is the same as a regular vacuum. The geared pump belt is a pain in the **** and should be replaced by a vacuum repair tech. You have to disassemble the vacuum to get to it. It's really not worth the hassel when you can pay someone $10 to do it for you.

How do you replace the pump belt?


To install a new belt you need to unplug the unit first and flip that bad boy over so you can acess the bottom of the unit. You will need a phippilps or torks driver to remove the scres towards the front where the brush is. Once you pull all this out the belt will be attached to the brush and a small pin in the back. It is really simple. Hope this helps out.

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.... : )

Belt replacement Hoover carpet cleaner


Hoover steamvacs don't use belts. If the brushes are not turning, pull the brush block out, turn the machine on and see if the square hole where the brush block was, is turning. If not then the turbine is bad. Sometimes you can take the turbine apart and clean it out. most times I have found , replace it.
