Belt keeps sliding over on the roller bar and rubbing on plastic parts. Belt is a "U" belt and I am told it should be a "R" belt. Sears sold me a "U" so I will try and find the R tomorrow. What keeps the belt other than tension from sliding onn the roller bar? Could it be that just the wrong belt could cause this??

My bissell 6590 works fine with hose attachment. Motor shaft turns when belt and roller are off. When belt and roller are on it's noisy and smelly. Now one end of the roller actually melted in the holding slot. Do these rollers wear out like this or should I be looking for another problem.

Stuck Roller Same problem here. I think in our case, the accumulation of hair and the increasing resistance the hair created over time caused the hair to start melting, and eventually the end cap was stuck to the roller, which prevented the roller from turning. I cleaned out the melted hair(?) as best I could, but I think I need to order a new roller and end caps.

Hello, I have a Riccar 8000. The belt works, the bar spins, and it will **** things up. However, it will not pick up threads and dog hair or anything from the carpeting. Mu husband took the bottom off and there were a couple of small parts on the plate. We have no idea where they belong. Could not see them in the photos in the manual. Could it possibly need a new roller? Any help would be most welcome. Thank you! Mary Simon

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.

I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

Roller Brush How do I install the roller brush. I didn't pay attention when I removed it and now when I attempt to vacuum my low carpet it doesn't seem to be working. The green light on the head of the vacuum goes out when I click it down to the floor. It didn't used to do that. Plus I think I smell something burning. Could the belt be broken?


Try a new belt. The ends of the brushroller are different sizes, so you can't put it in backwards. There are numbers and notches on the ends of the brushroll. These notches/numbers need to match on both sides when installing it. (probably need b ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum

Havent used for about two years. I had to put the belt on it. It doesnt seem to be sucking up very well and after about 15 minutes of vaccuuming the bag was empty. My house got really dusty. I know the rollers were spinning because i looked. I could hear some dirt going in but could definatly tell it wasnt working properly. Is it in reverse or something?


After two years you need to make sure the bag is connected properly and inspect it for tears and that the hoses are connected correctly and not deteriorated. Make sure the hose is clear. You should be able to feel the suction at the end of the hose. ... Vacuums
