I am wondering how I can clean the inside of my Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush hand held cleaner. I want to clean the part where you suction up - it is full of gunk and hair and I can't figure out if it comes apart or not so I can clean it. Can you help?
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Normally on the Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush the item will comes apart from the sides into 2 halves and then you can either clean out or blow out the inside of the
Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush, also you can take a wire coat hanger and straighten it out and bend a hook @ the end of the wire hanger and you can use the hook to pull out the clog or whatever is blocking the opening and you can also use a blower or an old tooth brush to clean the motor or to brush it off.
Always, check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

found it from Tara put online in nov 2008 Thanks this is it
Had the same problem... although I don't have particularly hard water, the heater block corroded just enough to stop most of the flow after about 4 years. Disassemble the handle to get at the heater block (3 pairs of screws/bolts), remove the tubes with needle nose pliers, use a paper clip to knock out the corrosion on the front tube on the heater block, flush with a syringe to get rid of any other bits of corrosion (some extra plastic tubing connected to the back tube of the heater block helps here, and catch the water from the front tube to prevent water in the electronics...), reassemble (avoid disconnecting any wires...) and try it out. Worked for me! I REALLY have to thank the person who suggested this fix! THANKS!!!
I used regular pliers , phillips screwdriver , the pointed end of a compass and a turkey baster full of water to blast it out . You have to improvise . Take your time watch the little rubbers on the heater make sure its not hot . It was just the inlet gets pluged up in the heater . You have to take off the tools then its the bottom set of plastic not the handle . You can test by pushing the plunger at the top . You must take the handle off . Loosen the pieces it just came off for me then snaps back on . This is all it was for me , very simple . I am disabled and did it on a extra old carpet a little at a time over a few hours . For someone healthy its a hour job tops or less . Just be patient . God helps those who help themeslves and asks for patience .
