Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?

Brush won't turn while sweeping

\015 My pet hair eraser vaccuum will not turn while sweeping carpet. The brush will turn if the vaccuum is tilted up. The belt is not broken either as I have checked it. What could be the problem\015

Answers :

Does it smell like anythings burning if it's on for a while?

It could be that the belt is just stretched out and not keeping enough tension on the brush while its on the carpet. Once you tilt the vacuum up, there's no more friction, so it spins freely. I've had a few that did that.
