The hose has to be connected to engage the suction. To test this, is there suction in the hose when you turn the vacuum on? If so then the hose needs to be connected.

How do I unstop vacuum so that the dirt moves through the hose? Vacuum has suction but wont move the dirt through to the bag less container.


If you can disconnect the hose and feel vacuum at the hose connector, that indicates that the hose is plugged. Disconnect both ends of the hose and hold the hose over a plastic garbage band to ketch debris and shove a broom handle through the hose to dislodge any obstruction. Reconnect the hose and test for vacuum.

Hello My vacuum cleaner is not working


A common issue with vacuum's not sucking is that they are blocked. Make sure that the hoses and air passages are not blocked. Use a coat hanger as a clean out tool. You may have to disassemble your vacuum to clean it out.

If fluid drains out through the bottom of the machine, rather than through the brushes, you most likely have a leak in the quick disconnect valve. ( part # 43523004, msrp $4.99 ) This is the small valve that the end of the hose connector snaps on to. If this is the problem, it will also leak when doing normal rug shampooing. This is a somewhat common problem with this machine. The valve will need replacement.

I have a bissell shampooer and it does not **** the water


Check the hose's and make sure there connected and that it doesn't have a hole in it. Make sure the water resivoir is seated correctly. Disconnect hose and check if it's clogged.

Check the hose after the brushes. With this problem there is normally a clog in between where you disconnect the hose (to use attachment) and the brushes that clean the carpet.

Vacuum making loud noise (like hole in tube)


I have the same vacuum - it's a clog in the brush area, or where the hose connects to the base. Unhook the hose, like you're going to use a tool. Lay the vacuum flat, so you can stick something in the plastic tube (at the base where you disconnected the hose) without the awkward angle. I use a dryer vent cleaner, but you could probably use a wire hanger. Push through until it comes out through the brush area...should fix your problem.

Vacuum


I just discovered that if you remove the dust cup, lay the vaccum back, reach up inside above the dust cup area, there is a yellow piece that can be removed (twist it and it comes out.) I found that there were GOBS of lint and pet hair stuck inside there. We removed all of that and the vacuum works great again!
