Question about Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum
When I use the vacuum, dog hair either blows out or is not picked up. If I hit the carpet, streaks of dog hair are left on the rug itself...I've checked connections and made sure everything is clean. and clear..Help?!!
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.
