I have a lift away and I'm wondering what the white Long filter does exactly. I'm not getting much suction and doesn't have anything to do with it?

SOURCE: loss of suction bissell vacume

Under the red flap in the water resevoir, there is a small screen. Pop that screen out and clean it. It is probably blocked with hair. I took my entire machine apart trying to fix this problem and I finally saw that screen. I cleaned it out and my machine works like new now.

SOURCE: No suction on the bissell lift-off revolution

I had the same problem. In the water resevoir, there is a red flap that allows the dirty water to flow back into the water tank. Lift that flap up and there is a small red screen. Pop that screen out with a butter knife and rinse it out. I have dogs in my house and that screen was blocked by dog hair. I cleaned the screen, popped it back in and it works like a new machine. You would think Bissell would address this roblem on their web site but they don't.

Check all the filters as well. We have dogs and the hair clogs up the filters. We take a air hose threw our vacuum once a month and it works like new again without replacing anything

My hose no longer works no suction buth the vacuume still works how do i fix I checked the hose checked the filters nothing works to get my hose so it has suction.


Check the following after unplugging the power cord from the outlet.
- Check for suction at the back of the unit, after removing the hose where it attaches to the back of the vacuum. If there is NO suction, the machine will need to be taken to a local Service Center for inspection.
If there IS suction at the back of the machine with the hose removed, please check the following:
Unplug the unit from the outlet.
- Check the Pre and Post-Motor filters for debris. Dirty filters can restrict airflow. The pre-motor foam filter is square and located in a pull out tray underneath the dirt cup. The foam filter may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Reinstall the filter when it is completely dry. The post-motor HEPA Media filter is rectangular and located on the side of the machine. Note: The white HEPA Media Post-Motor Filter is not washable.
- Ensure the dirt cup is empty.
- Check the upper tank for build up or clogs.
- Twist the inner cyclone to the left and pull down
- Wipe the inside of the upper tank and separator plate with a
damp cloth moistened with water or mild cleaning detergent.
- Once the inner cyclone is dry, lock back into the machine by
pushing up and turning to the right.
- Put the dirt cup back in
- Check for good suction at the end of the upholstery hose. If there is good suction, make sure the hose is firmly connected to the lower hose on the back of the vacuum. If there is no suction at the end of the hose, check the hose for splits, cracks or clogs.
- Make sure the brush is rotating. If it is not, remove the access plate and examine the brush, and belt for damage. The access panel can be removed by lifting the 4 tabs located at the bottom of your machine. Lift tab 1 then 2-4 tabs to remove the access panel.

CLEARING CLOGS
- Detach the upper hose from the machine. Insert a broomstick into the hose to push any obstruction through to the opposite end.
- Remove the screw from the left side of the lower hose on the back of the unit, and straighten this section of hose by pulling it down or lay the unit out flat, and roll the unit on its side with the lower house towards the top side. Look through the hose for any obstructions. Push a broom stick through the lower hose to unclog.

I have Bissell Powerforce Bagless Upright Vacuum. it doesn't suction well. I checked the belt. It is ok. may be clog in the hose.I don't no how to clean. can you help me please?


- Check the dirt cup to make sure it is empty.
- Your vacuum has 3 filters. Dirty filters will restrict air flow. The filters may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Allow them to completely dry prior to reinstalling them. The white HEPA media post-motor filter is not washable.
- Lift the upholstery hose from the bottom holder. Check for suction at the end of the hose.
If there IS good suction at the end of the hose, please unplug your machine from the outlet and try the following:
- Ensure the hose is firmly pressed into the lower hose outlet on the back of the vacuum.
- Check to ensure the brush is rotating. If it is not, remove the plate on the bottom of the vacuum. Check the belt and clean the roller of dirt and debris.
- Check the lower hose for clogs by removing the screw which attaches it and lifting the hose up to clean it out. Also, remove the larger hose by twisting it off and using a broomstick handle, push any dirt and debris through the hose.

No suction


I wonder exactly where you've looked for blockages... The fact is that if the vacuum motor is working (you would surely have said if it wasn't) there should be suction. The question is: why isn't it getting to the end of the hose? First thing you can try is to remove the hose from the hole where it enters the top of the bag compartment - check for possible obstruction at that point, then switch on and hold your hand over the hole to check for suction. If there's suction there, then there definitely is an obstruction in the hose. If there's no (or very little) suction at the top of the bag compartment, check the filter at the bottom of the bag compartment (below the bag). I assume you have been using a bag and filter! If all these things pass the test, then you have a serious problem with the vacuum turbine and you'll probably need professional help.
I hope this is useful. If so, please remember to rate my response. If you need more advice, post a reply here and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Good luck!

No suction with attatchments


if you have cleaned all the filters, there are two you need to wash and the hepa on the back may need to be changed, but the hose is probablly clogged. You can usually remove the hose ( twist it where the hose connects to the machine ) and use a broom stick to try and push the clog out.

Bissell turbo revolution


you can wash that sponge filter by hand but you must let it dry compleatly before putting it back in the machine, I found a filter pack for the lift off vacume at walmart, make sure teh bottom filter is clean as well. the lift off vacume has 3 filters there is one filter in the tray under the dirt cup, one in the top cup, and the hepa filter in the back the 2 foam filters must be clean or you can have reduced suction, the lift off vacume I have I found thrown away because they never cleaned it outthe brush was dirty and full of strings the belt was worn, the hose under the vacume was full and stopped up the hose in the back was compleatly stopped up all filters were compleatly clogged, and the hepa filter was missing entirely. Not to insult you or anyone but i've found that a lot of people are jsut to lazy to clean their vacume out it fills up with dirt they throw it away and get a new one, i've gottten many like new vacumes for this reason, this bissell is working like brand new now. and I just replaced the belt and all filters in it saving me approx. 150.00 for a new one

Lift-Off Pet Hair vacuum doesn't lift off pet hair!


very light "stuff" like dog hair will get stuck to the filter since that is where the suction goes. it's primary purpose was to keep dust out of the motor. This is a problem with many "bagless" cleaners. A bagged cleaner keeps all dirt and hair away from filters by utilizing the bag as primary filter. If you have alot of dog hair then this may have been the incorrect choice of a vac. all you can do is brush off the filter each time you use the vac. it will still pick up o.k. even when there is hair on the filter unless you leave it on day after day.
