Bissell Lift-Off Revolution keeps clogging

Every time I use my vacuumn(it is the Turbo model) the debris gets stuck before it makes it to the canister bucket where you would take off to empty the vac. It all gets stuck on the outside edges, in where I would guess is the filter(big yellow round looking thing), against the outside of the canister and will not budge! I have to take a screwdriver and literally open up the canister then try to push/pull it all out using that to clear it... but then, less than 2 minutes later it's clogged again in the same area! The canister is not full when it clogs, I clean it out every time I use it and it clogs right off. Is there anything I can do to keep that from happening?

Sounds like it is partially clogged. That yellow thing you are talking about, twist it and it should come out, clean or replace the filters, then re-install it. Check the hose and make sure there isn't a clog in it and clean any other filter. One problem with this bagless is the filters will clog up fast and need to be cleaned on a regular basis. Another place a clog happens is in the inlet by the brush roll.

I've changed the belt on my Bissell 3760-2 model but the brush still doesn't rotate. I've checked for clogs and there are none.


Clogs affect the air movement, but not the brush assembly. Remove the brush assembly from the vacuum base. Remove, clean, and lightly oil (with 3-1 or similar) the two end bearings. They are usually choked with debris to the point that they lock the brush roller. Reassemble it without the belt for a moment and check for free turning. If ok, install the belt and test the whole vacuum. Hope this helps!

Bissell Lift OfF Brush Roller Stops Rotating


They make the worst machines, the rollers are cheap and they make it so you cant take them apart to clean them. You don't want a dyson either, they aren't any better for pets. With all that hardwood floors you should get a good canister vacuum, sebo and miele are the best.

No suction with attatchments


if you have cleaned all the filters, there are two you need to wash and the hepa on the back may need to be changed, but the hose is probablly clogged. You can usually remove the hose ( twist it where the hose connects to the machine ) and use a broom stick to try and push the clog out.

Troubleshoot Bissell Lift-Off Revolution Pet Vacuum Cleaner


Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.

Motor gets hot and stops running


Make sure all filters are clean, also check the inlet by the brush roll isn't clogged as well as the hose. If this is all ok, then there is a problem with the motor. There is a thermo protector that comes with the motor that could be bad.

Clogged Bissell


Something must be in the hose causing a clog, take the hose off and if suction is good where the hose hooks up, then there is something caught inside the hose.

Bissell Lift-Off Turbo power outage


We experienced the same thing. There are several filters on the vacuum cleaner that need to be cleaned out regularly (monthly in the user's guide). But the reason ours was shutting down is a protective circuit that cuts power for 30 minutes to avoid burning up a motor when there is a clog. Our clog was in the hose on the back of the cannister. One end of it can be lifted out of the bottom. The other end locks into place on the top (by rotating the ring on the end of it). It is the path for the hair and debris to the bagless cannister. We found that the top end of that hose was clogged with hair preventing anything from going into the cannister. So if your cannister is not filling, that's probably your problem. Easy to remove the hose and it's only about 18" long, so find something to stick through it and force out all the clogged debris and hair. Good luck!
