Question about Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

No suction with attatchments

I have brand new lift-off revolution. Used it once, loved it so I went to use the turbo brush on the stairs..no suction. I tried using other attatchments with same result. I put my hand over the hose and there is hardly any suction..also have noticed the top container gets full before their is hardly anything in the bottom canister. Is that right? Yes I have checked/cleaned all filters..I need the stair and furniture attatchments to work as well else this thing is going back to the store..any help?

If you have cleaned all the filters, there are two you need to wash and the hepa on the back may need to be changed, but the hose is probablly clogged. You can usually remove the hose ( twist it where the hose connects to the machine ) and use a broom stick to try and push the clog out.

Well my bissell lift off revolution turbo just lost its suction?


Here's the manual for your vacuum is you don't have it already

www.thinkvacuums.com/pdf/uprights/Bissell_LiftOff.pdf

I would first start checking for a clog somewhere in the system. Second I would check the brush roller for problems. The manual explains all these tasks and how to check for them.

Hope this helps you

No suction on the bissell lift-off revolution


I had the same problem. In the water resevoir, there is a red flap that allows the dirty water to flow back into the water tank. Lift that flap up and there is a small red screen. Pop that screen out with a butter knife and rinse it out. I have dogs in my house and that screen was blocked by dog hair. I cleaned the screen, popped it back in and it works like a new machine. You would think Bissell would address this roblem on their web site but they don't.

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

Rotating brushes will not turn


If belts are ok then possibly needs new front brush motor replaced.

Main Brush Failure


first check if the brush motor is turning before you spend money on a new brush roller and belt. remove the belt by unscrewing the screws holding the brush cover ( the part touching the floor ) and slip the belt of the rotor. turn the vacuum on, and the brush on while the vacuum is in a reclined position. if the motor is not moving, you need a new motor.

Bissell Lift Off pet revolution vacuum losing suction


You may have a clog in the hose. Unhook the hose and see how the suction is there, if ok, then check the dirt inlet by the brush roll. If suction is low at the hose, then there is a clog in it.
