Question about Dirt Devil M086700 Vision Bagless Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Suction problem Hi, I have a 1.5 year old Dirt Devil Vision vacuum and since I changed the filter the suction is not working. The vacuum sounds normal, but there is no dust in the dirt container after I vacuum the carpet. The filter is clean, even after I use the vacuum for 30 minutes or more. Do you have any idea how I could fix it? thank you in advance, Ana

Re: suction problem

Check the intake hose at the bottom it may be clogged.try blowing into the long hose if you can't blow through it then you have a clog somewhere between the long hose and your intake hose at the bottom.the intake hose is the somewhat clear hose that comes up from behind the base at the will see it on the backside

Re: suction problem

Sounds like you have a leak in the suction path
look for a broken hose or seal

If there no blockages in the hoses, then the next thing to check would be any filters in the vacuum. When these get clogged, you will experience this problem.

Vacuum Problem

The Bissell can have several filters in it, depending on the model. Some have a round hepa filter that is covered with a foam sleeve. This filter is located at the bottom of the dirt cup. Others have a foam filter that is located under the dirt cup in a pull out drawer. Also, they can have a cylindrical separator above the dirt cup which can be removed and washed. They are usually a blue plastic and you reach in and turn it a 1/4 turn counter-clockwise to remove. If your machine has the hepa filter, when you remove the dirt cup, the filter is at the bottom and you turn the bottom 1/4 turn and the clear housing will come off to access the filter. You should also check the small filter on the machine just below where the cup sits. This will only be there if your machine has the hepa filter on it.

Attachment hose has no suction

Sometimes when you take them apart and
reassemble the vac (the plastic slide doesn't
make full contact with the lever,or it isn;t on
the lever at all) that switches
from the floor to the attachment. IF Tthere
are no clogs in the duct then that the
most likely problem
