My Bissell Dirtlifter Powerbrush carpet cleaner will not roll. The back wheels roll fine, but when you put the machine down flat, the front part (where the roller is) sticks and will not roll.

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum. I didn't get to use it but just a couple minutes and could already start smelling the new belt getting hot. I checked the roller and it is easy to spin. Not clogged with hair or dirt. Now the inside of the new belt has small pieces of rolled rubber instead of being smooth. The metal shaft that goes into the

I have a Filter Queen Majestic 360 and am having problems with the powerhead. There is a loud rattling noise in the powerhead, especially when I vacuum thicker carpet. I have replaced the motor, roller brush, and belt, but the rattling remains. It sounds like it is coming from the roller brush area,and when I turn the powerhead over, it rolls free and sounds fine. Any thoughts?
Hi there, as per your information i guess its a problem of power transformer. He can't supply the proper power in the motor & thats why the noise will come from the transformer. Thanks & waiting for your feedback. ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a

There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.
