Having problems with your Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum ?
Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate
\015 When power is turned on the motor sounds fine but the large brushes on bottom of vac do not rotate and therefore do not pick up any dirt. Do I need a new belt?\015
The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.
Brush does not turn, keeps burning the belts in half. Brush motor works fine. Brush itself seems to be the problem. Seems to have a slight catch when turning by hand. Could this be enough to cause the brush motor axle to burn through a new belt in less than a minute? Can you take the brush unit apart to clean, or just find a replacement?
