Having problems with your Bissell Powergroom Pet Vacuum ?

Belt keeps breaking, but motor turns easily by hand on bissell powergroom, burnt rubber smell as well.....

\015 Changed belts, took it apart but unsure how to check the motor or what i'm looking for to determine why it will turn by hand but the belt breaks when you turn it on....\015

Answers :

Something is preventing the roller from spinning when in contact with the carpet. This causes the belt to stop turning and the motor shaft spinning in one spot causes the belt to burn and break. The protective guard could be damaged or not installed correctly, preventing the roller from spinning when the vacuum is upright. Also, if you are vacuuming a pet, check for fur or hair jammed in all the likely places and some unlikely ones too

I just used my Bissell Proheat, when I heard the vacuum sound get lower and lower then suddenly something "gave" and it got very loud and started emitting a burnt rubber smell. It still worked to put liquid into the carpet; seemed to have trouble getting it out. I checked the tank, filters, belt, and roller and all seemed OK - but when I started up again and looked down I saw sparks in the motor/belt area and shut it down immediately. Any thoughts?

The bearing that is located at the top of the vacuum motor has failed . Because of that the shaft of the motor's rotor is out of position and the pulley attached to it has started rubbing on the other pulleys, giving you that smell. the spark appear ...

Replacement parts... I've got a 3594 Bissell and the belt has come completely off. In the process of breaking, it bent the metal guide inside the motor housing and melted the plastic that holds the guide and keeps the belt inline with the roller. I've got it running again by using a screw I filed all the threads off of, but it only works for 10 minutes at a time before breaking another belt. This process is getting expensive, as it usually takes 30 minutes to completely vacuum the house. Is ther

I heard that a class action lawsuit against Oreck Vacuum is being started because of all the problems customers are having with their vacuums. Does anyone know about this? My Oreck is only a couple of years old and keeps burning up belts. I took it in after only one week of usage when I started to notice white smoke coming out of it and the smell of burning rubber.
