Won't go forward anymore

My Bissell gets stuck going forward...something keeps getting in the way, like the beater bar or something...I used to be able to fix it but not any more. Now all I can do is pull it backwards...ugh.

Sounds like the half moon window and the clear noozle window have come apart. You may have to take one or the other off to re-align them. Sometimes you have to replace the half moon window, part # 2149851

Oreck vacuum cleaner stop and burn smell


sounds like hair or string or something like that is wrapped around the beater bar(the long brush under the head that brushes the carpet) keeping it from turning. The belt that drives the bar is getting hot because the beater bar is stuck.

Smell of burning when turned on


Check to see if something is stuck in the beater bar, (aka- rotary brush). Might need a new belt.

Beater bar is not coming on- belt is on, canister is empty. Vacuum runs but no beater bar


Remove the beater bar and clean the debris from the bar and the end bearings. Remove the belt (remember how it is installed) and check it for any damaged areas. Make sure the bar turns freely before the belt is attached to the motor drive. Hope this helps!

The beater bar moves when I push the vaccum forward but it just drags when I pull it back, but when I flip it over to have a look it easily turns both ways. How do I fix this?


The belt is stretched that is why it is doing that. You need to replace the belt. Here is a link to the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:

Belt


Hi. This isn't a hard repair at all.... Unplug your vacuum. Turn the vacuum beater bar side up. Locate the catches or screws that hold the plate on that covers the beater bar. Remove the plate. The beater bar sits in sockets where it attaches to the vacuum, so remove carefully, making note how it comes out. This will make reassembly much easier. Place your new belt on the motor shaft, then onto the beater bar while you replace the beater bar back into the sockets. Test your work by revolving the beater bar a bit by hand. Reinstall the cover plate. That's it!

How do i change the belt on the bissell powersteamer 1697w????


Ok taking the cover off is good. I believe the the little red thing is the beater bar. This beater bar has brushes on it an extends the width of the vacum. Pull the beater bar out straight. Some times it is tight. Next is to place the new belt around the spindle in the back and slide the beatrer bar into the belt. No twists! Besure to have the beater bar with the seperated area with no brushes inline with the belt.Now place the beater bar in place. Make sure you turn the beater bar so on the side the slotted portion slides all the way in place. Replace your cover. Turn it on and try it.
I believe this will work. Let me know.

Not working


The bissell shampooers use belts t run the pump and the beater bar. if the master beltbroke which is the one that controls the pump and beater bar then yes the machine will not dispense water or turn the beater bar. it will have to be replaced *the belt that is*

I smelled something like rubber abd now it won't pick up anything.


In all probabilty, your beater bar brush was jammed and the belt that drives it was stuck while the motor that drives it was spinning. This problem will manifest otself as a burnt drive belt. If you can open up the base part ( where the beater bar is) and examine that area for the drive belt..chances are you wil find the problem.. while there.. make sure your beater bar is free to rotate ( power should be removed or disabled while checking all this) Hope this helps...
