SOURCE: Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum cleaner doesn't produce much suction.

If the motor really is working, the problem is most likely to be that there's a blockage somewhere, and on this excellent vacuum cleaner there aren't too many places to look. You've probably already looked in the inspection flap on the underside. If not, that's the first place to look. Next is to separate the bag compartment from the base of the machine (press and hold the button at bottom front of bag compartment and just pull the two sections apart - if this hasn't been done for some time, a gentle levering with something like the plastic handle of a dish brush can help). Then look down the rearmost vacuum tube to check that it's clear, also make sure the little sieve on the other tube is clear. That's all for the base section. Now open the bag compartment, remove the bag and check that tube all the way through the hose.
Another possibility is air leakage, and it does happen on older machines that the plastic tube onto which the attachments fit becomes so worn that it no longer seals properly in the hole in the base (where it lives for normal floor vacuuming).  You could also have split in the flexible hose, of course.

If none of this reveals a problem, the motor probably isn't as healthy as you think it is.
I hope this helps. Any questions, just post again and I'll see what more I can do.  I value your feedback, so please rate this response.

SOURCE: 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:

I hope that this was helpful. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to use the clarification request form here on Fixya, and I'll be happy to answer any of your follow up questions.

If this was helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback, this is greatly appreciated by the Fixya community when a helpful answer is written.

Sounds like the rubber drive band has not been replaced properly to drive the brush and/or the brush was not properly cleaned. You can find the manual here:

Hi,

First try the reset button. That is located on the left ofthe brush bar unit as you look at the machine. It is red. Press it and see ifthe brush bar works when the machine is reclined then. If it doesn't,check the belt whether it is broken. If you found it broken then you need tobuy a new drive belt assembly. If the belt is ok, then you most likely need a brushbar motor. Apart from this you can visit http://media.dyson.com/downloads/us/floorcare/manuals/dc24_opmanual_usa.pdf.This may help you further.

hooked rugs produce the highest amount of friction opposing the brush rotation, which can over heat the drive motor. try using a height setting that raises the brush so that it barely touches the pile. If this issue has been going on for some time, you may need to replace the drive motor.

The brushes do not disengage when in upright position


Set the brush control, as needed. The brush control turns the brushbar on the underside of the vacuum on and off. The button is located beside the power button, on the top-front of the vacuum cleaner. Turn on the brush control for cleaning carpet. Turn off the brush control for bare floors or delicatelb_icon1.png rugs..

The brushes stop rotating on rugs after a few seconds then button has to be pressed to start rotating again but keeps cutting out


Not sure this is your foolproof solution to the problem, but you might give it a try to see if it solves your problem.
When the beater brush starts to bind up due to debris it retards the action of the cleaner, sometimes to the point of the belt breaking.
Remove the beater brush as if you were going to change the belt. Remove all debris and clean as best you can. Pay attention to the end pieces on each end of the beater brush. They will can clogged to the point to stopping the brush from rotating. Add some WD40 to the clips at the end of the beater brush and work in by twisting the clips while holding the beater brush. Once it seems to be free, reassemble and be sure the belt is on properly, you might want to consider replacing the belt.
If you find this solution to be of help I would appreciate a Thumbs Up. Good luck and be well. Paul

When i vacuum the dirt and particles are not going into the windtunnel container-appears to be cleaning floor but isnt making it into the container.filters are checked and cleaned.less than 6 months old


If there is no obvious clog in the unit, you might want to check the beater brush and the drive belt. Be sure the belt is not broken and be sure the beater brush is free enough to rotate. If there is a broken belt it will be obvious.
I suggest you remove the beater brush and clean it as best you can, add some WD40 at each end by the brush holders and reassemble.
I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating on this if you find my solution to be beneficial.

Where is the belt located?


The "belt" is normally the drive device that turns the beater brush found on the bottom front of the vacuum. Its purpose is to beat the rug and cause dirt and debris to rise up from the carpeting and be sucked into the vacuum. If the belt is missing, you may not see it. If the belt is in place, it will loop around the beater brush and back to a drive motor. Since belts can break on a regular basis any covers over it should be easy to remove via small slide levers or at most by removing a few screws from the bottom of the vacuum. The new belt must be attached properly in order for the brush to move in the correct direction. If you are going to replace the belt it is probably a good time to clean the beater brush and lubricate the end pieces of the brush with some WD40 as well.

Beater bar sucked up corner of throw rug and now it doesn't turn.


Take the head down and clean the brush and when you put it back together it should be back in sync.

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.


You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
