Mine does that, too. Pushing down and wiggling the tank usually gets it going. Also, it doesn't seem to work when the soap bottle is low, even when the soap is turned off. I fill the bottle with water. It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged. Some people say the heating unit in the handle plugs up, particularly if you put soap in the water tank. I haven't dealt with this, but it should be easy to open the handle and bypass the heating unit.

SOURCE: Bissell Lift-Off Turbo power outage

We experienced the same thing. There are several filters on the vacuum cleaner that need to be cleaned out regularly (monthly in the user's guide). But the reason ours was shutting down is a protective circuit that cuts power for 30 minutes to avoid burning up a motor when there is a clog. Our clog was in the hose on the back of the cannister. One end of it can be lifted out of the bottom. The other end locks into place on the top (by rotating the ring on the end of it). It is the path for the hair and debris to the bagless cannister. We found that the top end of that hose was clogged with hair preventing anything from going into the cannister. So if your cannister is not filling, that's probably your problem. Easy to remove the hose and it's only about 18" long, so find something to stick through it and force out all the clogged debris and hair. Good luck!

How do I clean the filter


The foam filter can be hand washed, squeezed and them dried.
The pleated filter really never seems to loose it stall smell after cleaning. It's best to tap it against the hard ground to free the dirt.
Washing it can cause odors.

Turbo brush on bissell cleanview helix stopped spinning


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of reasons why your brush roller has stopped moving. General maintenance to your vacuum is crucial and will help it work at peak performance.

First things first lets focus on the brush roller. Unplug the vacuum and turn it on its side. Look for any noticeable clumps of debris or hair strands that may be caught in the brush roller. Remove these obstructions, probably best to do so with a scissor if it's hair or long pieces of carpet fibers. After removing the debris try manually rotating the brush roller to uncover other hidden clogs. Another thing to take note of is the condition of the bristles on the roll itself. Are they loose or worn down? These are signs that your brush roller is in need of replacing.

While checking out your brush roll you might as well take a look at your vacuum's belt. Your belt should be replaced about every three months. After regular usage, the belt will stretch out, lessening the tension on the brush roller. Lesser tension diminishes the brush roller's turn rate and speed. If the belt feels loose then it certainly is affecting your vacuums suction as well as your brush roll not moving at all.

It won't turn on


Have you checked the cords for a possible break preventing the machine from getting power. Use a AC volt meter to diagnose this. Many times the wires at the plug that goes in the wall break and it is the most common problem. Other issues are a defective motor and a defective on/off switch.
