Brush bar wont turn, Bissell smells like burning rubber

I cleaned out all of my hoses and THOUGHT I reassembled everything correctly in my Bissell Clearview.....now when I turn it on, the brush bar won't turn. I believe I have re connceted the rubber belt correctly, but I can see at the rear (small loop) where it has play on the metal spin rod. Am I missing a piece?

The belt just goes from the motor shaft to the brush roll. Do the ends of the brush trun freely, or is one of them froze up, if so replace the brush roll. If it is ok, try to turn the brush roll by hand, maybe the belt got pinched and won't move.

Brush stays on when upright


You are correct, the brush will continue to rotate when using the upholstery hose as stated in the user guide.

The burning smell may be contributed to a couple of different reasons. Make sure the front of the vacuum is not being tipped or tilted forward when using the upholstery hose.

If you continue to have difficulty, you may want to have a one of BISSELL's Authorized Service Centers inspect your vacuum.
Here's a quick link to locating one in your area:

Hey, you may want to have check if the brush turns by hand without the belt in place. If the brush doesn't turn manually, you'll need to replace the brush.

I bought my bissell quicksteamer about two years ago and recently i tried to turn it on and it makes a really loud sound and kind of smells like something is burning


Sounds like you could have a belt problem.
If you go to this URL http://www.bissell.com/assets/0/132/134/228/9367721b-1131-4a4c-b8fc-a7ceef5728e4.pdf go to about page 8 and review what is necessary to replace the drive belt. I suggest you replace the drive belt and at the same time clean as best you can the brush that it drives, you will have to remove the brush to change the belt. Remove all foreign debris and add some WD40 at each end of the brush between the brush and the plastic holders. Turn the plastic holders so they move freely around the brush and reassemble.
If you find this solution to be of help, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. Regards, Paul

Smells like burning rubber when I turn on my G6 Kirby vacuum.


You must take of the plastic ends from the wood beater bar and make sure the metal axels are not wound up with hair. I did this monthly with 4daughters

take the belt off again you will see burnt rubber from the old belt stuck to the motor shaft.you can take a fine piece of emery cloth and clean the shaft down to its polished finish.always good to do this after each belt.check the brush roller and see if there are any signsd of plastic melted.make sure it turns freely if not the brush roller might be siezing uo on youhave you cleaned the hepa filter?does it smell like wires burning or rubber.with it unlugged take it apart to the motor and take a fine iece of emery cloth and go over the motor armature .then try it again.you can take all the filters out and run it without the filters.that will help you narrow it down.please leave feedback

Bissell lift off, brush won't move smell burning rubber belt fine


OK - so your brush roller is jammed. And yes, the belt is melting! Unplug the machine, remove the belt (you will need another new one anyway) then see if you can turn the roller by hand. If it turns freely without you doing anything else, then you may have put the new belt in incorrectly. However, you will probably find you can't turn it, or it's hard work (it should rotate freely). Remove the roller and check the bearings - there may well be something tangled up at one end of the roller. If you can get the roller rotating freely, all should be well.
Good luck

If you have a rubber smell, then the belt is slipping, does the brush roll turn freely while holding the ends? If not then replace it, part #2036619, if it is ok, then the belt has strectched and is slipping under load, part # 2106679, Style 8.

Roller brush won't spin (bissel 6390/3910 series)


I just fixed mine. It took me all of 10 minutes. Pull the brush out. Stand the brush on end on the edge of your study work bench/table top. while holding the brush vertical( on end) take a small phillips screwdriver and tap using a hammer on the metal pin you see in the middle of the brush. Keep tamping and the whole assembly will come apart. What you will have then is a long metal shaft, 2 bearings(they are acutally skateboard wheel bearings same number same make). Clean the gobbed up hair with a razor blade and then reassemble by tapping back together. The bearing wont be worn out because they are way too tough for a vaccum. We used ride down hills on them! a ten minute fix wow and you wont have to drive to vacuum shop and spend $$ and time

Hi Pmob20,

 

Remove the brush and clean all the string or whatever may be trapped at the end edges of the brush.  This is usually the case with Bissel vacs, that string or fiber gets trapped at the ends of the brush assembly.
