The TurboBrush® on my Pet Hair Eraser® Vacuum isn't working. What should I check?

Answer: 1. Let’s start by turning off the vacuum. Remove the TurboBrush® from the hose and then turn the vacuum back on, checking for suction at the end of the hose.

 

2. If there is suction, go on to the next step; if there’s no suction at the end of the hose, the hose is likely clogged. Detach the hose from the vacuum and insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end. Please note: a coat hanger is not recommended to clear a clog, as it may damage the hose.

 

3. Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, remove the back-side of the TurboBrush, pictured below.

4. Next, remove the belt guard screw (pictured below) using Phillips-head screwdriver.

5. Remove the belt and brush and remove any attached hair or debris. If the belt is broken, you’ll need to replace the TurboBrush. You can do so here: http://www.bissell.com/parts/?sc=part&productid=2443&partid=4969
