How to change vacuum belt on bissell 6583-x

I am not familiar with this model but the first step would be to
remove the brush bar cover...this may be attached by screws
or numbered tabs which are released in sequence starting
with #1. With the cover off pull the brush bar out and slip the
belt off the pulley. Be sure to buy the correct belt and line up
the groove on the brush bar with the motor pulley...put the belt on
the pulley and stretch the brush bar forward and insert into the
slots on the sides. I hope all this applies to your vacuum.

Sorry to hear about the difficulty with the brush. If your brush does not turn by hand freely, then your brush needs to be replaced.

I received as a gift, but it doesn't have a manual and I cannot find one on Bissell's website for Model 6583. Do you possibly have a cross reference? Thank you very much.

My bissel bagless vacume is not sucking


This is a fairly common problem with the Bissell bagless vacuums unfortunately. Bissell uses a series of filters throughout their machines, and if you haven't washed this filters recently, this may be the cause of the lack of suction.

If you'd like, please just reply to this repair with the exact model of your Bissell. This model number can be found on the bottom or the back of your vacuum cleaner on a sticker that also contains the serial number. This information will help me identify where exactly your filters are located.

Most Bissell's have a hidden filter inside of a trap door that most people aren't even aware of. First check to see if your model has a filter located directly under the bagless dirt cup. It's usually in a black colored tray that says "PULL". Slide this tray out, and check the filter that's in there. If it's all dirty and caked on with dirt, then this is probably your problem. This foam filter can actually be washed, just rinse it under the sink, but make sure it's completely 100% air dried before putting back in your vacuum.

If your model doesn't have a filter here, then you may also have a filter above the dirt cup. When you remove the dirt cup, look directly above the dirt cup in the clear plastic part that stays on the vacuum. There should be a circular shaped plastic part in the top part, Simply turn the plastic part to left while pulling downwards, and this filter should pull out. This filter is also washable, just make sure that it's dry before using the vacuum again.

Again, if you'd like to give me your exact model number, I'd be more then happy to better diagnosis the vacuum cleaners suction loss for you. Please just use the clarification request here on Fixya.

If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and rate my answer as helpful by clicking on the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair. Thank you very much, this is greatly appreciated. If this wasn't helpful, rather then rating it unhelpful, please let me know more detailed information, and I'd be more then happy to walk you through the repair.
