Wow, that motor is one of the most complex in a vacuum and to repair it can be very difficult, if you want to replace it you can but it will be very expensive just for the part. the screws are hidden under that big rubber gasket on the bottom of the machine where the water tank sits. you should also replace that gasket two because it will get ruined when you tear it off.

It's my own fault however now I don't know what to do to get rid of this terrible smell. I've water cleaned the hepa filter, not able to remove the separator screw to clean.

The belt on my vacuum cleaner model 6596 bissel powerforce bagless turbo keeps breaking. As soon as I put on a new belt and start it up the belt snaps. It is the durabelt meant for this vacuum model. Also, my son has been having the same problem with his. He has the same model and same belt. This problem is occurring even after a thourough cleaning.
I would guess you aren't centering the belt correctly, thus it's edge is caught between the brush and another solid object, causing the breakage.\015\012When you get the belt on the the brush and the brush back in place, turn the brush a few ti ... Bissell 6596 Bagless Upright Vacuum
The Panasonic MC-V7515 has two belts. The local vacuum repair guy says he only has a part number for the drive belt, which is UB-9. How do I find a replacement for the other belt, the one which directly drives the beater bars? By the way, this vacuum has great suction, but otherwise is far inferior to my previous Panasonic vacuums. The cheaper models aren't a good buy--stick with the more expensive models.

My Rainbow SE vacuum was working fine until I ran over the edge of a rug and it went in to the nozzle. I immediately switched the vacuum off and proceeded to move the rug. When I tried to turn the Rainbow back on the brush was no longer spinning. I've tried the reset button and checking the nozzle for any debris, there are none. The brush just won't spin.
