Having problems with your Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum ?

Main Brush Failure

\015 Hello,Our vacuum cleaner has a burning rubber smell, and the main brush won't turn (or stutters, and then stops). The suction is fine, and when I flick the "brush" button it sounds as though it's *trying* to turn. We dismantled the bottom, and both the brush and the belt seem fine - we cleaned it and put it back together, but it still doesn't work. From other responses on this forum, it sounds as though you think we should replace the brush and the belt anyway--is there some other thing that could be wrong? How expensive (and/or difficult) would this be, and where is the best place to buy replacement parts online? Thanks for any advice you can give us! \015

Answers :

The belt may look fine but it can be stretched or worn. You can get replacement belts here:

Bissell Lift-Off Revolution Replacement Belts
First check if the brush motor is turning before you spend money on a new brush roller and belt. remove the belt by unscrewing the screws holding the brush cover ( the part touching the floor ) and slip the belt of the rotor. turn the vacuum on, and the brush on while the vacuum is in a reclined position. if the motor is not moving, you need a new motor.

We lost our instructions to the Kirby Shampoo attachement and how to attach it to the main unit, the belt and how to use it.

Please help us with as simple and complete instructions as possible. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, LOUIE CAPLAN

My Oreck XL upright is blowing out instead of sucking in. I changed the bag and cleaned the brushes; I also cleaned out the main "pipe."
