Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

What it sounds like is that your belt has either broken, or has been stretched to a point where the brushes won't spin. What you'll need to do is turn the vacuum cleaner upside down and turn on the vacuum. Are your brushes spinning at all? If your brushes are spinning, when you put the machine on the carpet, does the brush stop spinning, or slow down noticeably?

If either one of these happen, you'll need to replace the belt. Most Bissell uprights will use Bissell Style 7,9, and 10 belt (3 styles, 1 belt). The best way for you to find out what belt your machine takes, is to refer to your owners manual. You may also email me your model number, and I'd be happy to ship you the correct belt.

The instructions on how to replace the belt are also diagrammed and explained at the above link.
There is also a troubleshooting page on page 14.

Please email me if you have any further questions, I'd be happy to answer any question you may come across.

The beater bar is making a loud noise, and the dog hair is wrapping around the bar. Why would that be happening?


You probably have dirt or garbage wrapped around your beater bar. Loose carpet strings as well as pet hair will do this. If you see dog hair on the carpet its best to pick it up with your fingers as it will make a mess of a vac. Check your drive belt as it could be on its last legs as well causing the loud noise. Probably should be taken apart and belt replaced and a good cleaning as well. You should give a good cleaning once a year.

Already replaced filters. Suction is fine. Only have short nap rugs. Is not picking up hair, thread small things on the carpets. I have cleaned the bristles on bottom as well.


Turn the vacuum over with the bristles up. Turn on the vacuum and see if the bristles are turning. If not, then replace the belt that makes the bristles spin.

We have a dyson dc27 total clean, this is the worst vacuum we have ever owned we have dogs so we vacuum about every other day our dogs have fin short hair and its hard to pic it up we have to go over the...


My vacuum engineer friend loves Dysons ~ he says that they keep him in business!!
The only machine that I have found any use on animal hairs is the Miele Cat'n'Dog model.
The turbo brush is excellent.
Dogs shed most of the time so that means to keep onto of the hairs you need to vacuum most of the time (once a day!).

Pricey but mine is brilliant.
Dyson's are cheaper and now you know why!
Good luck

Dc41animal leaves obvious tracks on beige carpet


Hi Alan, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like all Dyson upright vacuums, DC41 Animal includes a motor-driven rotating brush bar. This includes stiff nylon bristle tufts which sweep into the carpet pile, agitating out dust, grit and stubborn pet hair. This will also have the effect of raising the carpet pile where it's been trodden down from daily use - this is what causes the tracks you've noticed. You can see how DC41's brush bar and cleaner head are engineered to work in the video I've attached.

It is possible to turn off the brush bar using the silver brush control switch next to the red on/off switch. However, the brush bar is an important factor in effective carpet cleaning and we would always recommend vacuuming carpets with the brush bar turned on - with the exception of delicate carpets or rugs.

It does sound like your machine is working correctly, in the way it was designed. I hope this information is useful to you, but if you would like some further advice, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

What's the best vacuum for pet hair?


Try a bagless vacuum cleaner as hair blocks up bags very quickly. One that is around 2000 watts should have enough power to do the job. As for the price check appliance stores for sales and deals.

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

Noisy on rugs!


Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.

Have a good day
