Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I took apart my bissell easy vac to clean it because it was clogged and now I cannot remember how a part goes on that is underneith the vacuum. I keep putting it on but its not right. It lifts the vacuum off the floor so it is not sitting in there right.

My vacuum lost it's suction power. I've looked to see if it's clogged and the container is clean. What's going on?


That type of vac is notorious for stopping up where the 90 degree turn is. You may need to access it from the vac head by removing the beater bar or take it apart where ever you can access the turns and hoses.

My Bissell 3130 Easy Vac Bagless vacuum makes a "rev sound when pulling back on the vacuum, never did this before i have taken apart and cleaned vacuum thoroughly, not sure what else i can do


The drive belt may be wornout/stretched and the act of pulling the vacuum backwards could be causing the belt to slip and the motor to rev up as a result.

Do you have a replacement belt you can try?

Debris getting stuck in vacuum hose


Check that the filters are completely clean. If there are clogged they would have to be washed and then dried to room temp (or a low temp tumble dryer, put the filters into a pillow case with a towel and install into the machine) Tip the bissell backwards to make sure the bottom bin is pushed and locked all the way in. Only when the two seals meet will you know that the bin has locked in properly. Unhook by prising the main hose at the back off to check for clogs as well as the main hose at the bottom and the main dust channel at the sole plate where the roller bar is. You may have to remove the bottom plate to check for any obstructions behind the brush bar.
I have the Easy vac myself. Its not an Easy machine to maintain when it gets clogged!

My bissell easy vac won't pick up after first use


Well after reading and re-reading my bissell easy vac manual (I had only used the vac twice), I went through all the troubleshooting recommendations. I cleaned out all filters and even though I had only used my hose attachment once, I was shocked that it was completely clogged! I took the whole thing apart and thoroughly cleaned it out according to the manufacturers instructions. It is working beautifully again now, I just take extra care to check it after every use...it can be a hassle, but I find that's what happens when you buy bargain items; you spend less but end up investing more time in upkeep. I hope this helps!! :)

What can I do and what part do I need to replace? I have taken it apart and clean it but still won't pickup the water.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright. It sounds to me that you may have a clog or an obstruction or the channel to the suction motor per say might be broken and is not creating the suction needed to pickup the water to the recovery tank. So check with your local factory authorized vac dealer that carries and services Bissell. I will give you the Bissell factory phone # listed below for further questions. 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.

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
