    Mine does the same thing. It seems like its picking up but nothing is in the canister after I'm done. It also seems to be blowing air out instead on in.

    Has anyone gotten a solution to the bissell easy vac debris getting stuck in the hose instead of in the cannister? I made sure that everything is fitted on correctly, and as indicated by others it appears to be picking up but everything is just going into the hose or filter areas and not into the cannister.

Well after reading and re-reading my bissell easy vac manual (I had only used the vac twice), I went through all the troubleshooting recommendations. I cleaned out all filters and even though I had only used my hose attachment once, I was shocked that it was completely clogged! I took the whole thing apart and thoroughly cleaned it out according to the manufacturers instructions. It is working beautifully again now, I just take extra care to check it after every use...it can be a hassle, but I find that's what happens when you buy bargain items; you spend less but end up investing more time in upkeep. I hope this helps!! :)

Bissel easy vac roller won't work


remove brush roll and clean any string, hair, or whatever from it. especially around the ends. you can also unscrew the ends and check for debris there also. when you put ends back on use a little wd40 to lube up the bearings. if that doesn't work replace brush and won't hurt to change belt

I misplaced manual for Bissell Bagless Cleanview II, nothing being picked up in the plastic bin, where to I look for clog other than bottom of hose near bottom plate please?


Recline the vacuum fully to the floor when looking for clogs in the lower hose. You can run a broom stick through the upper hose to remove any clog. Also, check the brush to make sure there is no obstruction. Lastly, make sure all 3 filters are clean and clear because if they are dirty that can restrict air flow drastically. You can purchase filters at www.bissell.com

My bissel vacume was not picking up the dirt on the carpet. So I found that the hose was clogged. I unclogged it but the vacume still is not picking up the dirt. I also changed the filters.


I found out that if you remove the front filter holder, tip vacuum back and look down inside. Sometimes there is hair caught back in there and you won't get suction. I had to use something long, knife, very long type tweezers, to pull all the hair out. Worked great after that. About half way through vacuuming I will stop and remove the foam rubber filter and clean it. Oh yea, you will have to use a flashlight to look down inside to see all the hair caught behind the foam rubber filter cup.

Bissell easyvac 3108.No suction.Changed filter/cup.Brush working fine.


I had the same problem, ended up I had to clean out the hose for the accessories...I found out how to do it by looking at the troubleshooting section of my owner's manual online at bissell.com. (Just type easy vac under troubleshooting and choose the instruction manual based on your model number). If none of these things work, you can always contact bissell at 1-800-237-7691. hope this helps!!

Debris getting stuck in vacuum hose


Check that the filters are completely clean. If there are clogged they would have to be washed and then dried to room temp (or a low temp tumble dryer, put the filters into a pillow case with a towel and install into the machine) Tip the bissell backwards to make sure the bottom bin is pushed and locked all the way in. Only when the two seals meet will you know that the bin has locked in properly. Unhook by prising the main hose at the back off to check for clogs as well as the main hose at the bottom and the main dust channel at the sole plate where the roller bar is. You may have to remove the bottom plate to check for any obstructions behind the brush bar.
I have the Easy vac myself. Its not an Easy machine to maintain when it gets clogged!

My bissell bagless vac has no vaccum. ihave


You will have to clean the filter and clean the main motor.  I had this issue on mine and the main motor was so full of dust bunnies, that it stopped it from creating a vacuum.

Bissell 3510 Vac with loud noise but not belt


Did you check the brush roll, may have a problem with it. But you could have a problem with a motor bearing going bad, they getting loud, also if there is a problem with the motor fan, that may be the cause of it being loud. Bissell 3510 either is obsolete or is thw rong number, it doesn't come up at the Bissell site.
