    the process you provide doesn't relate to the Bissell 8975 (eg. it doesn't have a bag)
    Tried to follow your instructions for accessing the motor but still can't do it. think you're refering to a different model. appreciate the attempt though

    i still have no idea of how to access the motor. if i did then your latest advice would probably be applicable.
    i've removed about 3 pounds of philips screws from the machine but still cannot get into the motor.
    think from your latest probably the motor bearings are the problem.

    since no one seems to know how to service a bissell model 8965, i would like to get a refund. please advise how to do that.

    Bissell vacuum model 8975
    making much noise, think it is motor bearings (if there are any). cannot access the motor.
    how is motor accessed.
    instruction received so far has not been applicable to Bissells.

Hi,

Is the smell rubber or electrical?If rubber then the belt is slipping and needs to be replaced, they stretch after awhile. Also is the brush roll turning freely, or is it bound up, it may have to be replaced. If the smell is electrical, then probably the motor is going bad and will have to be replaced.

    Also ry to hear where the source of the noise is coming from. If it's
    coming from the motor area, you probably have a broken fan in the motor
    and need to replace the fan (very common in vacuums where dirt goes
    through the motor instead of bypassing). If the noise is coming from
    the brush area of the vacuum, you probably have a broken bearing in
    your brush roller and would need to replace the brush itself, or the
    body is worn where the brush is mounted to the vacuum, in which case
    you would need to buy a new vacuum.

    1. Be sure the vacuum cleaner is unplugged. The lower handle screw and
    the handle must be removed. If there is an accessory hose, remove it.

    2. Turning the vacuum cleaner over, remove the top cover screws. Then
    turn the machine right side up again and shift the height adjustment
    out of the way. Then you can lift off the cover.

    3. Remove the brush roller (beater bar) and drive belt and then remove
    the motor. The motor clamp is secured by a screw that must be removed.
    When you reinstall the parts, be sure you do not damage the gasket at
    the other end of the motor.
    Be sure the vacuum cleaner is unplugged. First you remove the dust bag,
    filter, and all hoses. Take off the cover screws and then lift off the
    cover so you can access the motor and electrical components.

My vax vacuum has started making a high-pitched whining/whisting noise


Ususally this is caused by a forein object has gotten hung in the suction impeller attached to the motor. the noise flucuates due to the housing flexes with the movement of the handle and rod. the housings are usually made of plastic and something very small can easily get stuck in it and stay for a very long time. The vacuum needs disassembled and the forien object removed from the fan housing...
Hope this helps
Sincerely

I vacuumed last week and it worked fine. Now I turn it on and the light is the only thing on. What is wrong?


Hello Jeannette, you unit probably needs a system maintenance. Their are quite a number of possible problems affecting your unit.The belt could have cut thereby not rolling the motor, the motor could have become bad and the control board could have gone bad. Although apparently since the light still comes on this indicates that the power is still supplied into the unit. trouble shooting tips for vacuums differ what is the exact make and model of your unit? Let me know this so i can provide more exact answers for your problem.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

Hi,

Actually there not supposed to burn up. I have read some reviews on that model Kenmore and it seems it is plagued by electrical problems.

It sucks from the hose, but not from the base.


I guarantee that there ia a wad of paper in the intake throat. This will necessitate disassembly of the bottom plate and removal of the beater/brush bar.) I am assuming an upright rug/floor vac, as I didn't get any model numbers/types from your description. This disassembly is very easy to do. Remove said items and dig deep into the intake throat at the motor. Good luck.

My vacuum makes a loud noise like a soccer horn going off, and neighbors are yelling at me for it! how do i make it quiet? its a bissel.


If you haven't changed the belt recently I would try that. Worn belts can cause funny noises sometimes. You can get Bissell replacement belts here:

Bissell 8975 is not sucking up. I took apart the bottom and cleaned it thoroughly and disassembled the filtration system but still it has no suction.


try blowing down the inlet pipe it could be blocked up if you have sucked up some thing big (ei: like the cat or maybe one of the kid's?) some times the fan has started to spin on the drive shaft that would cause it not to **** any more and very soon the motor would start to over heat as well, it may be a better idear to get a new one as the cost of getting it fixed wont be cheep, it would need a new motor fitted, pricy?

Hoover Model S3281, disassembly instructions


GET TO THE REEL AS FOLLOWS:

(BEFORE YOU START, BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE DIMENSION FROM THE OUTLET)

1). TURN VACUUM OVER AND USE A FLAT-BLADE SCREWDRIVER TO WEDGE/SLIDE THE WHEELS OFF (PUT THE SCREWDRIVER BLADE BETWEEN THE LITTLE BLACK WHEEL BRACKET PIECE AND THE GREY CHASSIS OF THE VACUUM AND SLIDE/WIGGLE THE WHEELS OFF);

2). THE 2 DEEP HOLES AT THE TOP OF EACH WHEEL RECESS LEAD TO 1-1/2" LONG PHILLIPS SCREWS >> UNSCREW THEM;

3). AFTER REMOVING ALL 4 SCREWS, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO EASILY LIFT OFF THE TOP OF THE REEL/MOTOR COMPARTMENT.

4). CAREFULLY LIFT AND ROTATE THE CONTROL PANEL TO THE SIDE.

5). THE REEL IS NOW IN PLAIN SIGHT.

6). I’M STILL TRYING TO FIGURE-OUT HOW TO SAFELY ACCESS THE GUTS OF THE REEL MYSELF. I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH INTERMITTENT VACUUM POWER AND ALSO WITH WEAK CORD RETRACTION.


ANYWAY, GOOD LUCK TO YOU !!!
