I checked the belt and it has not broken, but when I start to vaccum the spinning head stops, and I start to smell a rubber smell...Do you think I need to replace the belt, I did get some string caught in it the last time I vaccummed, and it did stink like rubber then also...

When I was using my Bissell ProHeat 7901, I smelled something hot (almost burnt) and turned off the vaccum. When I turned it back on, everything seemed to be working, but the vaccum part was not making the same sound. The bristles are still turning, but it isn't picking up as much and is leaving quite a bit of lint on the carpet. Could the belts be worn? How do I tell? Thanks!

When i use the vaccum, it smells like burning rubber. I know this is probably a belt issue, but will a replacement belt solve the problem? If so what belt and where can i find it?

We had the same problem, and it turned out that the roller wheel height setting had broken, for no apparent reason, and was "floppy" so we had to lock it in to one setting with epoxy. Limits utility, but it works. Sort of. ... Bissell Upright Vacuum - The Pet Hair Eraser 1 ea Vacuum
