Here is the link to the detailed instructions for belt changing. When you take the brushroll out, make sure that the brushroll spins freely. If it doesn't it will burn up your belts and needs to be replaced.

Put belts on a Bissell pro heat 2x


Call the Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 something doesn't sound right. Are you sure you followed the detailed install instructions that should have come with the new belts? I'd check that first and if you did then call them.

Smells like the motor is burning. observing sparks. It the motor cooked and is it just time for a replacement?


If you're observing sparks, then yes, just get a new one. With the low prices of good vaccuums its not worth starting a fire with your vaccuum. If it just smells like the motor is burning, check the belt and make sure its rotating freely and if you have an attachment, make sure the brush on the vaccuum is not being stopped while using the attachment. However, if you are seeing sparks,,,, definately time to junk it

Can't remove black brush arm on bissell model #8910


The bar rides in sockets at either end of the bar. Look at it carefully,; it is probably not quite right. Ease it back out by wiggling it and try prying gently with a small screwdriver. Once out, look at the ends, and match them back up with the sockets.

First, make sure you have the right belt, second, i am thinking that you are not lineing the roller up right, it will only fit one way. look at the ends of the roller and the grooves where it slides in, you should be able to see clearly how it goes.

Belts keep breaking


Check the brush roll ends to see if they have melted or frozen. They should turn freely, part #361869-1. Make sure the belt isn't being pinched somewhere.
