Question about Bissell Vacuum - Momentum Cyclonic 1 ea Bagless Upright Vacuum
Remove the bottom plate under the vacuum and check the brush assembly for being stuck. Remove the belt from the motor and try to start the machine--does the motor spin and have vacuum? This machine is not a wet-pickup type vacuum. If the motor now runs, remove the brush assembly and remove the end bearings. Clean the brush in hot water and dry off. Clean the outer bearing interiors with a Q tip swab wet with hot water, then another to dry them out. Use a third to apply a small amount of light machine oil (3in1, or sewing machine oil) to the brush ends and the bearing interiors. Reinstall the belt and turn the machine on--hopefully, this will get it working again. Good luck!

Clogged vacuum hose, new carpet, have been through two vacuums already.
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. When vacuuming it is a good idea to give your vacuum a burst of air once in a while to clear the hose and push the dust and dirt into the bag, simply just lift up on the powerhead or vacuum hose and give it a burst of air every 5 or 10 minutes. Also, we you like to know the brand name and model # of the vacuum. Some of the ways are to use a round metal ball or marble to see where the clog is in the hose and then you can use such things as the end of a broom handle, or you can use a wire coat hanger and bend the end to make a little hook and then try to grab the clog and say fish it out – or if you have another canister or shop vac you can tune on both canisters and try to pull the clog apart and sometimes that works as well – just be careful so that you do not puncture the electric hose because they are expensive in the area of $100.00 or more in some cases. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

If the problem is only with the brush, and the vacuum motor is working all the time, then the most likely cause is a poor connection between the upper and lower parts of the machine. As you will know, the two parts can be separated easily and (especially if you do that often) the two little flat pins that make the electrical contact can become damaged. So check the pins, and the sockets they fit in to. If they are not visibly damaged, good contact can sometimes be restored by VERY SLIGHTLY bending the pins.
If you are able to check for electrical continuity between the pins in the brush part, then do so. If your machine has done a lot of work it may be that the so-called "carbon brushes" in the motor are worn out and are no longer making good contact so will need to be changed.
I hope this is helpful. If you need more information just post a reply and I'll see what else I can do. Please remember to rate this response. Good luck!
