Bissell Healthy Home Won't turn on

Yesterday I plugged my vacuum in to use and it would not turn on. I tried a lot of outlets and still nothing. I even tried it this morning and it still won't turn on.

    I have checked all of the hoses and connections, cleaned the filters and I still cannot get it to turn on!

    Mine won't turn on even though I have tried several outlets and cleaned it out and changed the filter.

    My Bissell Healthy Home won't turn on either.  I used it in the garage to clean out my car.  One time it was working fine, the next it wasn't.

I found the solution for my vaccum!!

The top handle connects to the lower half of the handle with one phiilips head screw. The screw is halfway between the cord holder on the back. The screw had come loose and the handle has slid back away making it not make contact to send the power down to the motor.
Hope this helps someone else!

Same problem here; brush motor started/stopped as I changed the angle of the handle. Before finding this solution, I had tried bypassing the cut-off switch over the left axle, that turns off the brushes when the handle is perpendicular, but that didn't work. Moving the handle still caused the problem. This connector in the handle solution seems to have solved my problem. Before tightening the screw, I noticed the handle wiggled back and forth easily a the joint due to age/use. And I didn't just tighten the screw, I also took a knife and enlarged the pins and collapsed the sockets of the connector ends to help ensure this didn't happen again for some time. Problem solved, thanks!

I plug my vacuum in and turn it on and nothing happens. checked different outlets and still the same problem.


Check the following:

- The handle may not be installed properly, causing a loss in the power connection. Remove the handle completely. Slide the handle back into place on the lower section of handle and tighten the screw.

Brand new Bissell Healthy Home 5770H Upright will not turn on.


If the brush attachment isn't locked into place than the vaccuum will not work make sure it is attached properly.
