Check and clean all filters or look for any obstruction in the hose.

Why won't my shark navigator cordless vacuum pick anything up?


Sometimes everything seems to be fine. The brushes turn, but if the brushes aren't cleaned of hair, rug tangles and so on, the brushes on the vaccum get filled and it won't puck up anything. ON THE OTHER HAND if the brushes are clean, did you check all your hoses from thr base of of vaccum where things get sucked up to the bin?

Fixing the overstretched hose on the helix bissell vacuum


Hey Trinidad! Sorry to hear the hose sucking together. You may want to purchase a new upholstery hose.

Here's a quick link to the BISSELL website.

It isn't sucking up things like it use to. Where the Hepa filter is it is blowing out to much air. I need it to blow less and **** more.


Not knowing the model number of your vaccum a lot of problems stem from a clogged or partially clogged suction hose. If your model has a suction hose remove it completely from the back of the vaccum at both ends. Hold it out staraight and look for a clog. Pine needles, hair, paper, small sticks, etc. Once cleaned that should do it. Let me know, OK?
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Vacuum doesn't vaccum!


Sounds like there is a clog near where the hose conects to the lower brush part.. Try to look up in there.. Under the brush there should be an opening that goes into the hose.. There might be a clog there..

Doesn't have good suction


My guess is that the fabric that yoiu sucked up is stuck in your hose. Take the hose completely off of the machine and run something long (straightened out clothes hanger will work) through it to remove the clog.

Vaccum has no suction


Here is what we did to fix the problem of our vacuum having no suction.
We unscrewed the three screws on the back and took the hose off of the vacuum.  Then we took the hose outside and put the water hose through the vacuum hose and turned on the water.  After about 30 second the water pushed through a dust bunny the size of a fist and a marker.  Basically, the vacuum did not have suction because the hose was clogged with dust, etc.  After reassembling the vacuum, it worked just fine.

Bissell vaccum problem


Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.
