Bissell powertrak revolution dirt not going into cup

The dirt stays clinging around the waste chambers filter and not dropping down into dirt cup. I have to unscrew the filter, remove, pull dirt out and continue vacuuming while the dirt cup is mostly empty.

If the unit is not blocked between pickup and filter have a good look at the filter to see if air is passing through it---paper throwaway or foam filter the can be washed?

The ones that can be washed etc will have instructions right on them.

SOURCE: vacuum

Check the brush roll first, if it is ok, then probably your motor has gone bad and will have to be replaced.

You just have to twist hard the first time for some reason. If you hold the container with your right hand you actually have to twist the bottom half CLOCKWISE when viewed from above.

SOURCE: Dirt gets caught up in filter instead of in removable container

That is the problem with the bagless cleaners. The dirt goes through the cup, directly to the filter. There is nothing to keep them seperate. You can try putting a single layer of paper towel against the filter. It will provide a breathable barrier for the dirt but, it will clog too.

Cleaning the filters


Hello,

There are 3 different filters on this particular model. Two of them are foam, and as washable, the 3rd is a HEPA filter that's located on the back and is not washable, but needs to be replaced once a year.

The most important filter, and the one that most people are not even aware of, is located directly underneath of the dirt cup. Directly under the dirt cup you'll see a black tray that says "pull". Pull this tray out, and you'll find a square shaped washable filter. Simply remove this filter and rinse it under water until it's clean. Make sure to let the filter completely air dry before reinstalling it in the vacuum and using the vacuum again.

The second foam filter is located directly above the dirt cup. Remove the dirt cup, and in the clear plastic housing that's directly above the dirt cup you'll find a circular colored plastic piece. Reach your hand up there, and unscrew this plastic part while pulling downward. You'll find a circular shaped filter that wraps around this plastic piece. This filter may also be washed the same way as the square shaped one, again just make sure that the filter is completely dry before using the vacuum again.

The HEPA filter is actually on the back of the vacuum in a grate that pull down to open it and remove it. This filter needs to be replaced only, and can not get wet.

The foam filters can be washed several times, but will sooner or later need to be replaced, as they will start to deteriorate after a few washings.

If you need to purchase these filters, here are direct links to all of the filters on your vacuum cleaner.

Square Shaped Pre-Motor Filter Bissell Part 203-1073


Circular Shaped Bissell Upper Tank Filter 2031085 Pre-filter Lift Off Series

Bissell Style 8 & 14 HEPA Media Post Motor Filter Part 3091



Here's a link to the parts diagram for your model also, this will help you locate the 3 filters.

Also, here's the link to the owners manual for your model as well:

I have the bissell powertrak revolution. I have hardwood floors...even on the lowest setting it is throwing some dirt back at me instead of picking it up....


do not worry about this....it is a common issue with every brand of vacume this style....the poblem is not of power or quality..but rather one of friction or lack of resistance because of the smooth floor surface....carpet surfaces permit the brush part of the roller to FLICK the dirt back up high enough ( only millimeters) to be sucked by the continuous suction flow of the vacume...however smooth finished hardwood or tile floors allow for the heavier none dust particules on your floors to be swept accross the floor with speed...if there was a back drop on the back end of your vacume cleaner these particules would be stoped and sucked up....try taping a strip of brstle board paper with scotch tape to the back part of ur vame head and see if it makes a differnce. Put the paper at dragging floor level and tape it..then sprinkle some dried toast on the bare floor and try it....let me know if it works...

Replace Filter
As you vacuum, dirt and debris are deposited in the Dirt Cup
while air passes through the filter before being returned to
the room. This process enhances the vacuum path while
dramatically reducing dust, dirt, and potential allergens from
the air you breathe. Replacing the filter periodically enhances
vacuum power and air quality. To replace the filter:
1. Remove the Dirt Cup.
2. Grasp the filter frame and pull it straight from the Cup.
Empty the Cup.
3. Replace the filter. Push new filter into place at the top of the
Cup, place the small tab at the bottom of the Cup into the
slot at the bottom of the Canister cavity, then press the upper
portion of the Cup into place until the lock button snaps
into place. Use only BISSELL Style 6, #32047 Filters
[package of 2] in your BISSELL EASY VAC™ Model 3101-0.
4. EASY VAC™PLUS Model #3102-0 features a high efficiency
3M Filtrete™ Filter. To keep your cleaner operating at peak
efficiency and to remove irritating allergens from your
home, you should change the FILTRETE™ filter every six
months. Use only BISSELL Style 6, #32046 Filters [package
of 2]. The cup-shaped filter lifts out from the top of the
Dirt Cup, and the new one fits into place.

Bissell turbo revolution


you can wash that sponge filter by hand but you must let it dry compleatly before putting it back in the machine, I found a filter pack for the lift off vacume at walmart, make sure teh bottom filter is clean as well. the lift off vacume has 3 filters there is one filter in the tray under the dirt cup, one in the top cup, and the hepa filter in the back the 2 foam filters must be clean or you can have reduced suction, the lift off vacume I have I found thrown away because they never cleaned it outthe brush was dirty and full of strings the belt was worn, the hose under the vacume was full and stopped up the hose in the back was compleatly stopped up all filters were compleatly clogged, and the hepa filter was missing entirely. Not to insult you or anyone but i've found that a lot of people are jsut to lazy to clean their vacume out it fills up with dirt they throw it away and get a new one, i've gottten many like new vacumes for this reason, this bissell is working like brand new now. and I just replaced the belt and all filters in it saving me approx. 150.00 for a new one

Bissell vaccum problem


Could be plugged, check the hose and at the bottom by the brush roll, the inlet maybe clogged. Also check the filter under neath the dirt tank. There are filters above the dirt container, clean those out. If after that it is still loud, then maybe the motor fan or bearins are bad and will have to be replaced, part #2031214 sells for around $55.

Vacuum doesn't suck (boy, what a problem :D!)


First, check the suction at the end of the hose and make sure there is good pull. On some models, there is a filter tray located under the dirt cup with a washable foam filter in it that could be plugged. It is also possible that the tray could have fallen out during your move. If it is missing, the motor will run, but won't direct the suction to the cup and you won't get any suction from the hose. Note.. not all models have this tray. If the tray is missing, you shouldn't get any suction from the hose.
