I have been using my Bissell vacuum cleaner for a while now and it has been really helpful. I have had to change the belt twice so far, but this was not difficult at all. This post will go over how to change a belt on a bissell vacuum cleaner.

Your Bissell vacuum cleaner is equipped with a belt, which connects the motor and the brush roller. When you replace it, check if it's tightly attached to both parts and make sure that it has no holes or tears.

You can find the manual on this website. Just search for "Bissell vacuum instruction manuals" and you will see all of them in order by model number.

Finally, take off the bottom plate of your vacuum cleaner by unscrewing four screws with a screwdriver at each corner until they are loose enough for you to pull them out.

Why does my Bissell belt keep breaking?

You may have a worn out Bissell belt. You can replace this part to fix the problem! In order to change your belt, you'll need to turn off the vacuum cleaner and unplug it from the wall. Next, remove the screws on both sides of the bottom plate with a Phillips head screwdriver. Once you've done that, lift up one side of the plate and pull it away from its corresponding clip so that you're free to remove it completely. Now just repeat this process for each side before reattaching them in reverse order by lining up slots in each corner with their respective clips and tightening all four screws down tight. This is how easy it is to replace your Bissell belts!

My Bissell belt keeps breaking. I've tried everything to make it work with no success. I think the company needs to do something about this problem.

How do I stop my vacuum belt from breaking?

Do you ever vacuum and all of a sudden your belt snaps or breaks? This is an easy DIY fix that will save you the time and money of having to buy a new vacuum. The best way to avoid your belts from breaking is by regularly replacing them with ones that are identical. If you already have an old belt, try cutting out any worn spots or knots before putting it back on the roller brush. You can also apply some lubricant like WD-40, olive oil, or liquid soap onto the area where the belt goes around the roller brush rollers. Keep in mind this may not work if there are cracks in the rollers themselves. With these tips, hopefully you can keep your belt working for much longer!

  1. Clean your vacuum regularly - dirt and dust can cause the belt to wear out
  2. Replace your old vacuum with a new one if it's more than 10 years old
  3. Check that the brush on the bottom of the vacuum is not too close to anything on the ground, like carpet or furniture
  4. Consider replacing your belt with an updated version of what you have now
  5. Check for loose screws on the machine and tighten them up as needed
  6. Use a lubricant spray for any areas where friction may be occurring, such as between two pieces of metal

Stop using your vacuum on hard floors. Try using it more on carpeted areas, and make sure to change the belt regularly.


Changing the belt on your Bissell vacuum cleaner is an easy thing to do, but it can be a nuisance when you have to deal with tangled hair and dirt. There are two types of belts that will need replaced for this model, so make sure you take note of which one before getting started.
