Having problems with your Bissell 5770 Healthy Home Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Bissell Beater brush sporadic

\015 My beater brush starts and stops erratically. I have attempted to clear all blockages. I get good suction from the hose,just can't get the beater bar to spin. Is this a belt issue?\015

Answers :

I was having the same problem with my Healthy Home vac and happened to read a solution to another question on this site posted by someone with the user name "9008". I followed his suggestion and my vac works great again. There is a screw on the back of the handle near the cord holders that can loosen up over time. When this screw is loose, the brush switch (and therefore the brushes) do not work properly. I'm not sure why this little screw causes such a big problem, but it does. To find this screw, look on the back of the handle, it's on the edge, kind of behind the hose. You should see a triangle with a Phillips screw-head symbol embossed in the plastic. Tighten this screw gently (careful not to over-tighten and strip it!). Also, not a bad idea to tighten the other screws...I found many of mine to be quite loose. Hope this helps!!

Again, I have a Bissel Model 3760-4. The same problem as everyone else. The beater bar will not turn. Took apart, nothing.

You would think Bissell would come up with a fix, if nothing else to save their reputation. Thanks Diane
