You might have a leak on the suction side...perhaps the housing is not properly secured, or there is a **** in the black plastic hose.

My hoover spin scrub has no suction wont pick up water why?


No suction means somewhere in the intake side of the system you have either a blockage or an air leak.

Tip

Bissell Bagless Upright Vacuum not working


If your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner is not cleaning like it did when it was new, then you need to provide a bit of maintenance or service. I will tell you how you can do this maintenance to your Bissell vacuum.

First, make sure that your floor vacuum is unplugged. Then you can work safely on your Bissell bagless vacuum.

If your Bissell upright vacuum is losing suction, then the next thing to check is the canister. It is very easy to simply forget to dump the canister.
The while you have the canister out, check the filter inside the canister to make sure that it is not plugged full of dirt. This filter can be difficult to access, but a little persistence will pay off. When you get the bottom of the cup open and remove the filter, use a bit of soapy water to wash out the filter. You can then reassemble the filter into the bottom of the canister.

On the left side of the vacuum there is also a HEPA filter Bissell has there to help filter the air even more. Remove that, clean it also and replace it.

The hose is the next thing to check. You can completely detach the hose from the vacuum. Check the hole at the bottom where the hose hooks up to make sure the hole is not plugged. Then stretch out the hose and run something like a coat hanger through it to make sure that there are no obstructions inside the hose. You should be able to hold the hose up to a light and see right through it.

The last thing to check is your Bissell vacuum belt. If the belt is too loose it will slip and not spin the brush properly. Bissell belts can be purchased online easily, or in many grocery stores. If your Bissell upright cleaner has a slipping belt, it may also be because of strings, carpet pieces, etc… getting wrapped around the brush. Remove the vacuum brush and cut off everything that is wrapped around it. Always be careful of the vacuum belt after you have just used your vacuum. The belt will be very hot just after use.

These steps will help you to get your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner working like new again.

Are all your filters clean? Start with end of hose and go backward. Hose, small dowel. Make sure clean. Then, next section motor or hose. Keep going.

Every thing clean & sucking well except wont pickup off floor. brush in good condition &rotating. any answers would help.


This is hard to answer without see it in person. Check and make sure there is no broken pieces on the bottom where you could loose suction. Also make sure you have the machine set correctly for either bare floors or carpet. If it is on set on carpet and yopu are cleaning bare floors you might loose suction there also. Also make sure you check all pathways for the dirt to get to the canister fo any signs of blockage. Are all the filters in place like they should be? Sounds like the suction is getting diverted from the floor somehow, make sure everything is secure and locked in place on the canister. Also check on the top of the handle and make sure the little purple screen is moved back into place covering the top of the handle, you could be sucking more air in thru this inlet and not enough off the floor! This is usually moved out of the way when you connect the hose to the handle for your attatchments. It may still be pulled back and needs to be moved forward into place!

Since the last use of my new ProHeat X2 carpet


Check the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool mode). On the underside of this section is a small (about 1 inch square) red plastic piece with a little door on it. Flip open the door and you will probably find it is clogged. Clean it out and you should have full suction again.

Get hose off and straighten it out and look inside.. If not - check both ends where hose connects in the units..

BISSELL PRO HEAT X2 CLEAN SHOT


Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool use) and is on the underside. It is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter with a little door on it. Open the door and you will probably find it is clogged with hair, carpet fibre., etc.. Clean this out and you will hopefully have suction again.
