Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?
I changed the belt on my vacuum,and the belt burned up,and snapped.Right after I changed it.Am I missing a piece??
Sometimes it can depend on the quality of the belt - if its brand new then it shouldn't snap the moment it is changed; if its an older belt sometimes they can break up the moment they're changed. Ensure that the model you have is correct with the correct product code of the drive belt. Also Check that the sides of the brush bar are not clogged with dirt - one way to check would be to check the brush bar rolls freely with no belt on it before putting a new one on. Another issue is something my old LG upright used to do - it used to break new belts even when the roller brush was completely clear - and the only way to get it to stop was to replace the heavy dirt bag with a new one. It seems the slightest bit of strain on a motor can make things like belts break. Hope all this info helps.

Hoover Wind Tunnel 7500 Brush not Turning. I have replaced the Brush and the belt. The problem does not seem to be either to me. I believe might be a missing part. The place were the belt hooks on is a metal pole which never seems to grip the belt well. In fact it seems loose most of the time and slips on the brush, causing the belt to eventually burn up. Could there be a missing plastic or rubber piece meant to hold the belt taught on the metal pole?

Last night as I was vacuuming, I noticed that the belt stop indicator light was on. I pulled out the hair that had gotten tangled around the brush in hopes of solving the problem. It didn't change things. I then unscrewed the entire bottom piece to take out the brush roller. I removed hair from the end piece of the brush roller and reattached the belt; however, I cannot figure out where the microchip is supposed to go so that I can reassemble the base piece by screwing it back together. It seems

Belts breaking/melting The original belt broke at almost 1 year so I replaced it. I changed the carpet setting to shag even though my carpet is very low pile to make it easier on the vacuum.

My Bissell Model 3760-4 is not working properly. The belt has been replaced (and checked 3 times), but the brush bar does not move when the brush motor button is on. The little metal turning piece that turns the belt is turnable with one's finger when the belt is off, but when we put it all back together and turn on the vacuum, the brush bar does not go around and the burning belt smell returns. The portable part of the machine works properly. It's the brush bar. It has been cleared of hair, etc

I changed the belt on my bissell Cleanview revolution 3596 twice and both times the belt burned and starting to smoke. I'm not sure what to do now I have two broken belts what could I be doing wrong?
Sounds like the brush that the belt runs (or is supposed to run) is being kept from turning. If you can get the brush out to clean it and lubricate the ends that go into the holder clips, this should solve the problem.\015\012With the new belts burn ... Bissell CleanView 3596 Bagless Upright Vacuum
