If it's been over a year since you've replaced the belt that is the first place to start. Stretch belts lose elasticity and will still turn the brush roll but when the brush roll is lowered to the carpet it may not turn fast enough to pick up properly. If you have good suction at the end of the hose check to make sure there is not an obstruction in the tube where the hose goes into the bottom of the vacuum to the brush roll. Make sure your filters are replaced at least once per year and the bag is not full or has a lot of fine powder dust in it which can clog the bag.
When you say taking handle back I assume you mean the action to start rotation of brushes. Had simular problem and found by removing brush from tube and then cleaning "baked on rubbish" in plastic tube (so you can see clearly through tube) Clean with stiff brush and also making sure brush drive belt housing is also clean and allows brush to rotate square to housing did improve the suction power. I assume you have cleaned all filters by wahing under running water and applying a little pressure to remove water and attached dirt?
Probaly a clogged suction tube, unplug the vacuum first then tilt the vacuum upside down and see if you can see a clog .On the back side of the brush it will be kinda funnel shaped and that leads to your suction tube . That is the most common place for a clog.
Check the tube that leads down to the brush head for clogging as well as
any motor or HEPA filters. If that still shows nothing, take the cover
off the brush head (like you're changing the belt) and look for
obstructions in there. Usually, if you have low suction on the
accessory hose, the problem is with a motor filter, HEPA filter, or a
clog where the hose goes into the unit. If you have good suction on the
accessory hose but none on the floor, it's usually in the brush head
(clog or broken belt) Good luck
check the small hose that is under the machine ( it connects to where the brush roller is ) also you can remove a u shaped tube near the bottom of the machine and also another on the right side of the machine near the bottom as well
You say it lost its suction, then you also say this is plenty of suction power, seems you cant figure out the prob. Try cleaning the fan on the suction blower. The blades can get chocked with dust which will give you a reduced suction.
Turn the vac over, remove the access plate, covering the brush roll, 2 to 4 screws. Brush roll part number is
2032032if you need it, belt is a Bissell Style 7. While you have the brush roll off, check in dirt inlet to see if it is clogged, also check the hose to see if it is clogged. You won't feel suction at the bag tube, it has to have a bag on it and the lid closed before it will create suction.
