Question about Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum

Open Question

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc... Please help! Thank you.

SOURCE: Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber

The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll. If it is ok, try to turn the brush roll by hand, maybe the belt got pinched and won't move.

OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck

Bissell proheat pet brush is spinning but loud noise and vibration at same time


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has not work properly. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuums belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

Bissel 3760-4 brush motor doesn't turn on


Hi Tim. I understand the brush is turning & belt is fine. You may want to remove and reseat the canister. If this doesn't work, you'll want to have one of our Authorized Service Centers inspect your vacuum.

Brush won't turn bissell vacuum 3760-4


No there is no separate fuse, when you did this you caused the drive motor to overheat, this destroyed the belt as you have seen and likely burned out the motor for the brush head..

I've changed the belt on my Bissell 3760-2 model but the brush still doesn't rotate. I've checked for clogs and there are none.


Clogs affect the air movement, but not the brush assembly. Remove the brush assembly from the vacuum base. Remove, clean, and lightly oil (with 3-1 or similar) the two end bearings. They are usually choked with debris to the point that they lock the brush roller. Reassemble it without the belt for a moment and check for free turning. If ok, install the belt and test the whole vacuum. Hope this helps!

Model #3760-2 Bissell upright vacuum- making very loud noise when running. Cleaned all filters- no difference


Is the noise coming from the belt area, ie. beater bar, or does it sound like it is coming from the motor itself? It is possible there is something caught in the brush roller.
When you turn the roller off, does the noise go away?

Brush not moving in Bissell pro-heat


if the belt is more then 6 months old or more, then the belt will have to be replaced reguardless of the way it lookes. belts can stretch over time and when you put the machine on the carpet the friction causes the brush to stop because the belt has stretched. i would try this first. hope this helps

Bissell 7950


appears that you may have all the belts in place but the beater brush is jammed and it can't spin.. the jam may also be blocking the vacuum port so that you don't get any suction to that area. I suggest you unplug the vac, then open the base section to gain access to the beater bar and check to make sure the brush can spin freely.. also check that the drive belt is properly seated on the shaft and that there are no obstructions in the vacuum port.. hope this helps you..
