SOURCE: HOW DO I CHANGE THE BELTS ON A BISSELL STEAM CLEANER

on your housing you will see a plastic cover adout 4 inches long remove this piece and you should see where your pump belt goes. flip your steamer over and remove the little red retainer that sits by the belt you have located. at this point you can take your brushroll out and slip the pump belt over the pump and onto your motor. then reassemble.

Even though the belt may look okay it can still be stretched. If the belt is stretched then it will not turn against the resistance of the carpet. I would try changing the belt. You can get the belt for this model here:

SOURCE: My Bissell ProHeat steam cleaner won't spray water. The accessory

Under the plastic under the water tank (its a pain to pull apart to get to it) there is a solenoid that actuates the water between the floor and the tools. This is toast if its not spraying the floor, its simply not reacting to the signal to let it go through to the water side.
Seems to be a common problem with the Bissell Proheats. You can order a new one online for about $12 and try to get to it to replace it yourself (if you can open up the base its obvious which part it is if you just follow the hoses).

My Bissell 61c5-g started making a loud noise, vibrates bad, what can I check? I adjusted the height and it isn't connected there.


Most likely a bad belt. Contact Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 to order parts (detailed instructions comes in the package. To open the Belt area access panel you will need a flat medium sized screwdriver. There are two slots on the right hand side of the unit. Push the screwdriver into the lower slot and press the holding tab to lift the panel. The top tab should slide out easier but if it doesn't use the same process as the lower one. Examine the belts by rotating them all the way around (there may be two belts in your unit). I'd recommend if one belt is bad to replace both belts and keep the used one as a spare. Good luck. Hope that helped.

The belt for the maain vaccume broke off and now with the new belt the roller will not work.


It sounds like your roller brush itself might be bad. Try holding the roller brush holding just the end caps with your finger tips, and spinning the roller. Does the roller spin freely? If no, this indicates that your roller brush's bearings have melted together. This is a common problem for Bissell vacuums, as they use cheaper plastic bearing caps. The roller brush is not covered under the warranty either.

When this part goes bad, this causes the belt to break almost immediately. If you tried replacing the belt, and it broke immediately, your roller brush has gone bad.

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?

Roller brush does not spin


You either need to replace the drive belt for the roller or clean the ends of the roller where it is held to the vacuum. The ends of the roller brush become plugged with debris and need to be loosened by hand and perhaps lubricated a bit with some WD40. If you have to replace the belt, make sure the new one goes on in the correct direction.

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.

Changed the belt now making a loud noise and virberting


Remove the belt again and check the bearings on the ends of the brush roller for play and to make sure they spin freely. Also check the housing to make sure the brush roller ends seat in solidly and don't move around.

It makes a very loud noise and doesnt pick up much


When they make noise like that there is usually an issue with the drive system (the belt and roller brush). I would try cleaning off the roller brush and putting a new belt on. You can access the roller brush and belt by turning the vacuum over so the brush faces up. There is a cover plate over the roller brush which can be removed by removing the (4) phillips screws. with the cover plate off, you can remove the brush and old belt. clean the brush off really good and put it back with a new belt. This is normal maintenence for this model and should be done every 6 months.
You can get the replacement belt here:

Brush will not spin any longer


If the brush won't spin at all, it's either the drive belt or the roller beater brush is clogged. Pet hair can quickly clog a vacuum. Turn the unit over and see if the brush will rotate by hand. If yes, it's probably the belt. Also look for debris and clear as much out as possible. You may have to remove the bottom plate and clean the bottom of the unit out. If you do have to go that far, it would be best to replace the drive belt and thoroughly clean the vacuum.
