Remove the beater bar and spend some time removing the hairs and carpet fibers from the roller. It may take some cutting with a sharp knife to get it all, but with patience, you will have it smoothly rotating again. Test it by holding it just by the metal end and rotating the brush tube by hand. When it spins freely, it's ready to reinstall.

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 bar will not spin. The belts melt when I turn it on and the belt drive is hot to touch with smoke coming out.


The belt is rubbing the foot plate.Check to see if the foot plate is damaged.Allso check the bearings in the brush bar are free and spin without the belt on.If you cant spin the brush bar by hand with the belt not attached then your bearings are seized.Get a new brush bar

Rug Beater isn't rotating during use


This defintiely sounds like your belt has broken or slipped off the motor pulley. The brushes on your vacuum are driven by a belt that attaches to the motor shaft on one end, and the roller brush on the other end.

If you really do have the Bissell 6594 model that you posted this repair under, then to check your belt, simply turn the vacuum upside down, and remove the four screws from the plate that covers the brushes. The bottom plate will then lift off, and you will have access to the brush and belt area of your machine.

You'll probably notice that the belt is either split completely, or is stretched out, and fallen off the motor shaft. Even if the belt is still completely circular, it may be a good idea to go ahead and replace the belt anyway. We recommend replacing the belt on your vacuum every 6 months even if they don't break, as they don't perform nearly as well when the machine has a fresh, tight belt on it.

The model 6594 uses the Bissell Style 7,9,10, etc. belt. It's the most popular Bissell belt on the market. If you don't already have a new belt handy, here's a link to your belt on our website if you need to purchase one:
Bissell Style 7/9/10/12/14/16 Upright Vacuum Cleaner Belts (2 Pack), Part Number 32074

Here's link to the Bissell Owners Manual for your model that will walk you through step by step how to replace the belt on your machine:

Belt keeps burning and breaking


Hello There,

It sounds like you need to replace the roller brush. If your Bissell is breaking belts that fast, then that can only really mean one of two things. The first being that the belts are not being properly installed, and the roller brush is pinching the belt which causes the belt to break, but after 3 belts I doubt this to be the case.

Probably the more likely problem is that the brush roller's bearing have seized up. You may test this by removing the roller brush from the vacuum, and holding it with on your two pointer fingers holding the outside bearing caps of the brush, making sure not to touch the actual part that spins. Now try to spin the brush while holding the bearing caps with your pointer fingers. The brush should spin freely, and should revolve around 5-6 times with each spin. If the brush doesn't spin easily, then this is going to put a lot more stress on the belt.

You may try to remove the bearing caps on the ends by twisting them off, and visually inspect each side to make sure there is no hair or thread that's lodged inside the bearing cap. This will make the brush hard to spin, and can cause you to burn belts quickly like you have been. You may find the bearing caps will not come off. This indicates that your brush roll has worn out the bearings completely, and the bearing caps have melted to the bearings due to extreme heat. You will then need to replace the roller brush if this is the case, and it maybe the best solution for you if you have burned through 3 belts so quickly.

The roller brush for your Bissell (I'm assuming this is yours as this is where the repair was posted on Fixya) 6594 PowerForce upright uses Bissell roller brush part number; 203-1195. Here's a link if you need to purchase one;
http://www.govacuum.com/biclandpobar.html

I have uploaded the parts schematic and owners manual to the main Fixya page for your model as well. Sometimes it can take 24 hours for Fixya to publish this data, but please visit the link to these documents in 24 hours or less;
http://www.fixya.com/support/p49887-bissell_6594_powerforce_bagless_upright#manuals.

If your roller brush is good, then examine where the brush rests inside of the vacuum cleaner, this is called the agitator housing. Look at the sides of the agitator housing where the bearing caps rest. Do you see any visible damage on either side? Sometimes the brush can get so hot, it may melt the agitator housing on the sides where the brush rests, this will also cause the belts to burn very quickly.

I hope that this information is helpful to you. If none of these suggestions fixed your vacuum, please just add a comment, or request a clarification request here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to respond. If this was helpful, please be sure to rate the repair by clicking on the 4 thumbs up icons in the upper right hand corner.

Thank you,

Brush will not turn


Possible Solution: I had the same problem with my Powerforce vacuum. Please take note that I AM NOT a vacuum cleaner repairman, nor have I played one on TV. Try taking your beater bar out, and if it looks similar to the one pictured (Model#203-1195), get a cresent wrench. Look at the end of the beater bar one will be squared on the sides to hold the shaft inside statonary. Take the wrench and adjust it to fit the nub on that end. Grab the bar in the center, and turn the end with the wrench. Mine popped and came loose, then it could be turned by hand. A little light oil allowed to run into the end cap, turn it up and spin it a few times to let the oil work down the inside and put it back on. Mine works fine for now. Good Luck!!

Belt keeps snapping


Check your brush. It is likely that the brush is broken and will not spin. Hold the brush by the end caps and spin the brush and if it will not spin freely that is your issue.

Belt on this vacuum


Take off the bottom plate covering the brush roll, take out the brush roll, check it to make sure the ends turn freely, the belt goes around the end of the brush roll, then stretch it to go over the motor shaft.
