Question about Bissell Healthy Home HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Metallic Blue
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 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!

easy fix- mine did this too for a while bfore I figured out the handle wasn't aligning properly where attached. Give it a smack to realign it and it works again
