Vacuum brush not turning on Bissell
\015 Vacuum motor is on but brush will not spin when the grey button is engaged. I have no idea what could be the problem. Any thoughts?thanksmpinkney\015
Wish you had posted the model number, but it could be a broken belt and/or brush roll. Some of the Bissells had a separate brsuh roll motor which may be bad.

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

I have had my Bissell Healthy Home for just over a year. I use it once or twice a week on five area rugs and two small bedrooms with wall to wall carpet. Just recently, the motor started to sound extremely loud and it smells like it's burning. The vacuum still picks up everything and all the brushes are turning. Advice? I really like this vacuum and would really like to fix it rather than replace it!
