Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?
Bissell bagless motor shaft is too hot and melting belts
\015 The roller has been cleaned and made sure that it can spin freely, but the metal shaft that the belt goes around is getting so hot that in 15min I went through 2 belts.\015
My guess is that the roller binds on the carpet (high pile?) and the motor shaft, glazed from use, spins without moving the belt and quickly burns a hote through it. I've had that experience!

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

There is a lot of plastic/rubber residue coming out from the vacuum. We have tried new belts only to find the same problem occurs.

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?
