Question about Bissell 3522 PowerForce Bagged Upright Vacuum

Vacuum 3522-5 won't pick up

My vacuum stopped picking up. As soon as I turn it on, the red indicator shows up. I cleaned a lot of pet hair out of the beater, and got the same results. I bought new bags, only to find out the the bag was empty.
Would appreciate any help you can give. - Thanks.

    I have the same problem. My full bag indicator is always red. I push it up, changed the bag and yet it remains red. The vaccum has suction but very little. I've taken it apart yet no clogs. Anyone have any other Ideas.

    Maybe its just time to shoot it. It's been a very good vaccum cleaner.

I had that problem and it was indeed a clog in my hose. Even though I couldnt see it because it was way in there.

What's the best vacuum for pet hair?


Try a bagless vacuum cleaner as hair blocks up bags very quickly. One that is around 2000 watts should have enough power to do the job. As for the price check appliance stores for sales and deals.

The brush is clean and spinning but it isnt picking up anything and just pushing pet hair around.


You mentioned pet hair. Remove the brush cover and check for a plug (possibly pet hair). Sounds as though you have a plug somewhere and it's not allow the suction to pull it through. Also check your filter and clean or replace as necessary. Hint; Never let you container get over half full, it reduces the suction.

My oxygen will not pick up pet hair out of the. The brush rotates


Your brush may not be spinning try pressing the reset button on the back of the power nozzle, it that does not work you may need to change the belt.

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..

Loss of suction bissell vacume


that is normal for the vacume to shut off if the motor overheats you must keep teh dirt cup clean and empty and all the filters clean, when you empty the dirt cup if you have a lot of pet hair take the hose off and make sure that it is clean as well, and do not try to pick up any of those cleaning wipes that will stop it up real quick

Red "bag is full" indicator shows even though new bag has been put in and vacuum cleaner wont pick up. Also floor adjustment does not adjust. This is for a powerforce model 3522 series


The red light tell you that it is sensing a full bag. But a clog in the hose or the inlet down by the brush roll will also do this.
