Having problems with your Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Rug Beater isn't rotating during use

\015 I just bought this vacuum and the third time I used it, the rug beater stopped rotating. I have tried cleaning out all the filters and have checked that the hose attachment is hooked up properly on both ends.\015

Answers :

This defintiely sounds like your belt has broken or slipped off the motor pulley. The brushes on your vacuum are driven by a belt that attaches to the motor shaft on one end, and the roller brush on the other end.
\015\012If you really do have the Bissell 6594 model that you posted this repair under, then to check your belt, simply turn the vacuum upside down, and remove the four screws from the plate that covers the brushes. The bottom plate will then lift off, and you will have access to the brush and belt area of your machine.
\015\012You'll probably notice that the belt is either split completely, or is stretched out, and fallen off the motor shaft. Even if the belt is still completely circular, it may be a good idea to go ahead and replace the belt anyway. We recommend replacing the belt on your vacuum every 6 months even if they don't break, as they don't perform nearly as well when the machine has a fresh, tight belt on it.
\015\012The model 6594 uses the Bissell Style 7,9,10, etc. belt. It's the most popular Bissell belt on the market. If you don't already have a new belt handy, here's a link to your belt on our website if you need to purchase one:

While using my Dyson a rug got caught and that ratcheting sound started. I removed all signs of strings, etc until the brushes rotated fine but when I started the Dyson the ratcheting started again. I have the DC 14 Animal.

The rattly sound means the drive belt has snapped or the protective clutch has slipped. This needs repair by someone who knows how to repair Dysons officially. Sadly its the kind of model that can't be done by the owner. ... Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.

Kirby Heritage II. Beater bar does not turn. One end rotates freely, but the other sticks, preventing the bar from rotating. No obvious means to disassemble the end of the bar. Is there a way to repair this, or does this require replacement of the beater bar? Did clean the front end assembly, and removed all hair, threads and similar obstructions.

The bearing is bad on the end that turns hard. You will need to purchase a new brush roll assembly. If the roller is older that 4 or 5 years, it should be changed anyway. The brush strips that scrub the carpet loose their strength after many years of ... Vacuums

I have a Hoover Elite Rewind vacuum. Actually,this is my second one. However, after about 4 months of use, it emits a "sour" smell when I'm using it. I empty the cannister before each use and clean out the filter monthly. My house has mainly hardwood floors, so I typically only use it on area rugs and 2 small carpeted rooms. Is there any way that I can get rid of the smell? I've tried putting a dryer sheet in the cannister, but this gets stuck in the filter mechanism. Also, carpet fresh clogs th

My pet hair eraser rotating brush does not rotate. I read the manual and cleaned the brush and placed it back correctly, but it is not working when I am using it.

I ran my vacuum against an area rug that has strings around it and a few strings got caught up in the beater bar. Now, the beater bar does not function- the motor runs but the beater bar does not seem to be operating. I removed the strings from the bar.

Hi,\015\012\015\012There is a switch next to the main power switch on the handle which turns the brushbar on and off. When the beater bar becomes obstructed as in your case, there is a safety feature which cuts power to the beater bar. Al ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

I recently took out a stand mixer that is probably over 50 years old. It belonged to my mother and I wanted to use it. It probably hasn't been used in at least 10 years. With some effort, I removed one of the beaters but cannot remove the other one nor can I even budge it. I have used WD-40 but it's not helping. It's a Westinghouse product. Any ideas? Thanks.

My kids were in charge of the Rainbow, but they moved out. My husband surprised me by cleaning a dirty rug. Neither of us know how to use the Rainbow, but I at least know that you're supposed to use water. Will it damage my Rainbow that he did not use any water when he vacuumed?
