Belt slipping Belt slips off and rubs causing burning smell from the belt over heating. Of course this puts an indent into the belt and has to be replaced. How do I keep the belt from slipping off? I see no place for a belt adjustment. Which I know would eliminate the problem. Really aggravating to have to replace belt only after two uses.

How to disassemble the brush to empty anything that might be stuck inside of the brush? The motor seems to be overheating, all belts have been checked, all airways are clear and the filter is clean. The vacuum is vibrating and releasing a burning smell, but still sucking up dirt. There is nothing stuck on the outside of the brush, but is there a way to check inside of it to see if that is where a clog is occuring?


If there's a burning smell and the belts are fine, the problem is going to be hot wires causing the insulation to melt, or the motor going bad. Discontinue use and have it checked at a repair shop. ... Bissell 6594 PowerForce Bagless Upright Vacuum

Bissell 6595 problems with roller brush. I've had this happen with two of the same model. Each one didn't last more than seven months! First, it became loud when vacuuming, then there was a burning smell. When you try to replace the belt, you see that won't do any good because the fitted end of the brush is melted. The housing part the roller brush fits into is melted too. There's no place for the roller brush to fit into. I tried to upload pics, because I don't see how replacing the roller brus

I have two old identical 5842's that I use in the garage and around the house. The belt broke on one so I bought a bag of 2 genuine Eurika "U" belts, which is the correct belt for this vacuum. They were obviously smaller than the original belt because they were not stretched out. When I put the new belt on it lasted about 20 minutes and then came off. I put it back on and ran the vacuum with the cover off to see what was wrong. Everything looked fine except the belt rides to the outside edge of

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there's two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it's a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?

My Triton T80 SI shower is leaking from where the outlet pipe assy joins to the heater can assembly. when I checked where the two join together I see that there is a rubber O ring fitting into a recess in the heater can assy. The screws which hold the two parts together does not force a compression between the two parts causing it to leak. Is there another modified unit or am I stuck with what Ive got and should I replace the O ring or the shower.

I cannot charge my two year old electrolux pronto. I purchased a brand new hand held vacuum for it, but even the new one does not charge. When I plug in the cord nothing happens. If I turn on either the long handle or the portable unit within the long unit, the blue charging light comes on for a few seconds, then out. This tells me that the circuit is intact without a broken wire somewhere. I took it all apart carefully and could see nothing broken or out of place. On re-constructing it, it

I bought the vac, used, but was told there was nothing wrong with it. I called the company, and was given the impression that it will be a huge headache to return it. Here's the best part: when I received it, I opened the box: it was broken. Clearly the highest internal piece of the vacume, whent he handle is removed, was cracked off, and in two pieces. The handle will not lock into place, so if I were to vacume forward, see ya, and the vac is back in pieces. Any idea how to rig this to get it t

Roller problem Roller keeps stopping. I've emptied the dustbin. removed the roller to see if it is clogged, but appears to be nothing impeding it.  It stops on a short napped rug, and even on the wood floor.  Is the spool that the roller slips into driven by a belt? Can I get in there behind the spool?
