SOURCE: Eleectrolux canister sweeper power switch

There should be screws holding the handle asembly on to the top. One near the from, another by the handle, then slide the door near the back, there are 2 more screws there. with the handle off, you can get to the switch. Hopefully you can fina a replacement, alot of parts for the older Electrolux is No Longer Available.

I had the same issue after using it daily for over a year. I checked everything and found no clog. I brought it to a vacuum cleaner repair center and they found a clog in the motor. It cost me $25 and was well worth it. I love this vacuum

I had the same problem, called Bissell over 10 times! They send me 3 plastic inserts for the dirt chamber, not the problem. I solved it by throwing the Bissell away and buying a Eureka bagged vacuum, no more problems.

The wiggle test is very popular and widely used. If you can gently wiggle the area that is in question and it can cause a change. Then yes, it is an electrical issue (loose wire or connection) but if not, and you have to be aggressive with the unit to get a change. Then it could be a bad motor.

    My canister kenmore progressive is not sucking and is sptitting carpet powder dust all over the place. could it be it needs a new hpa filter? if so where on the vacuum would it be located?


    Remove the hose from the canister, and turn on the vacuum. Does it produce good air flow into the hose port?. If ok, remove the hose from the sweeper unit and plug the end into the canister. If ok, check the bottom of the sweeper head for plugging of the air passages and inspect the sweeper bar for accumulation of thread, hair, and string. If the first test produced no air flow, then open the canister and remove the bag--turn the vacuum on and check for air flow into the motor. If still nothing, then check the hepa filter which should be near the air output from the canister. Go to: searspartsdirect.com and enter the sears model number from the information plate. The machine's part drawings will appear and select the vacuum case drawing which should display the hepa filter location and also be able to order the filter from the web site. Hope this helps!

    Bissell powerforce bagless vacuum,when turned on dust flies out sweeper


    Dust flying out of the sweeper indicates that their is a blockage in the pathway that the dirt normally travels to get into the dirt collection chamber. Turn the sweeper upside down and look for a blockage of some kind. Also, empty out the canister and look to see that the pathway into the canister is clear.

    Hello,
    I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
    Mostly, you need to remove the top cover to the Bissell in order to get @ the handle release pedal. There could be screws on the bottom 2 or 3 screws or the top cover could be held on plastic clips or levers and they would have to be released then the top cover would come off.
    This should expose the handle release pedal. If you need more information please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area in the yellow pages, or use the trouble shooting guide in the owner’s manual or you can call the Bissell factory @ the information listed below:

    No power to head of Kenmore Progressive canister vac


    The extension wands are defective and have trouble with their plug connectors on each end. The power head has a reset button on top right but no lights mean no power which means the wand isn't connecting the power to anything.

    Sears has a new replacement -- too bad it isn't recalled so you could get it for free ($106.59 + tax + shipping). 2nd sweeper -- same problem.

    1st sweeper: I just took needlenose pliers and pulled connectors out a little further (Too bad I can't seem to make the 2nd sweeper work with this easily. It might be one of the connectors or the wiring harness inbetween with a break.) Can't buy the wiring harness for this or connectors, just the wand.

    If anyone has a working wand you want to sell me email me at hiwhatsnew@hotmail.com. Thanks!
