Question about Dirt Devil SwivelGlide Bagged Upright Vacuum
THIS MODEL HAS A U SHAPED BAG LOCATED IN THE HANDLE HOUSING. ALSO INSIDE THIS HOUSING IS A FILTER DIRECTLY OVER THE MOTOR. THE SUCTION IS STRONG BUT IT DOESN'T GO UP THE HOSE TO THE BAG, IT GOES DOWN THROUGH THE FILTER OPENING TO THE MOTOR. THERE SEEMS TO BE NO WAY TO GET THE SUCTION TO WHERE IT BELONGS UP THE HOSE TO THE BAG.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: "brush bar spins erratically"
Belt needs to be replaced, it has stretched to the point that under load, it won't turn the brush roll like it should, so I would advise replacing the belt. And while you are doing that, check the brush roll and make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also. Then check the dirt inlet while you have the brush roll out.

SOURCE: Vacuum Problem
The Bissell can have several filters in it, depending on the model. Some have a round hepa filter that is covered with a foam sleeve. This filter is located at the bottom of the dirt cup. Others have a foam filter that is located under the dirt cup in a pull out drawer. Also, they can have a cylindrical separator above the dirt cup which can be removed and washed. They are usually a blue plastic and you reach in and turn it a 1/4 turn counter-clockwise to remove. If your machine has the hepa filter, when you remove the dirt cup, the filter is at the bottom and you turn the bottom 1/4 turn and the clear housing will come off to access the filter. You should also check the small filter on the machine just below where the cup sits. This will only be there if your machine has the hepa filter on it.

SOURCE: lost suction
TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

disconnect the hose where it goes into the clear tube on top of the base.there will be a little flapper door there when yo take it off.open the door and take a coat hanger with the end bent over like a hook and pull the dirt clog out of there.but first take the dirt cup off and remove the filter,if its clogged with dirt you won't have any suction.try using the vacuum without the filter in the dirt cup.if you have suction then then thats your problem ,a cloggeds filter
