Either the hose has a clog, or the inlet down by the belt is clogged. Is there suction at the end of the hose, if not then it is clogged. If there is suction, then it has to be clogged down below by the brush roll, check that inlet. There also is a filter at the bottom where the dirt cup (and bag) is, check it also.

Mine does the same thing. There is no suction. I found that there is a door that opens when you tilt the handle in the down possition. I think there should be a spring in place so it can open. Until I find a replacement spring I have to open the door manually throught the opening under the light.

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.

I had the same problem, called Bissell over 10 times! They send me 3 plastic inserts for the dirt chamber, not the problem. I solved it by throwing the Bissell away and buying a Eureka bagged vacuum, no more problems.

I have a Hoover Nano Cyclonic that doesn't use bags. My daughter took the entire bottom apart because it wasn't sucking up. So she tried to clear everything and also TRIED to put it back together.


You may have a clog in there somewhere,
but still enough suction to pick some dirt up but it doesn't get sucked into the dirt cup and falls out when you turn it off. If your filters are over a year old or not maintained or cleaned frequently they may be restricting the air flow which can lead to clogs.

WHY IS IT SO HARD TO ASSEMBLE THE DIRT CUP INTO THE VACUUM


Good seal between the cups ensures that the vacuum cleaner has full suction. Check that there is no dirt or damage on the lip of the filter cup causing it to be jam up and be hard to assemble.,

Why won't it suck


Hey there! It's possible that you may still have a clog in your vacuum somewhere. The filters can also cause the vacuum to lose suction. Try these steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum. Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Rinse the filter under running water until it runs clear. Allow 24 hours to air dry outside of the vacuum.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash) Filters should be replaced once a year.
4. Remove the hose from both ends. Use a broom stick to gently loosen and clear any clogs from hose.
5. Remove the bottom plate and brushroll. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.

6. Check that the brushes are still spinning. If not, replace the belt.
Hope this helps!

No suction


Could be a clog of course. Id run a coathanger or something similar through the tunnel the dirt goes up through.

Another thing is if the dirt cup and filter aren't seated right, it could stop suction.

You could take the dirt cup off, and turn the machine on, and see if there is any suction right at the motor, carefully of course. That could rule out a fan/motor issue.

Decreased hose suction with Windtunnel


There are very few things left to check. First verify that the filter is installed properly, in the dirt cup. second check to make sure the dirt cup lid is on and secure. Did you use water on the round dirt cup filter? if you have you will need to replace it. To verify this remove the round filter and re-install the dirt cup on the vac. do not vacuum the carpet, just turn it on to check for proper suction. and then turn it off.

Your problem has nothing to do with it in the upright position. once turned on you will always have suction, either to the floor or when hose is removed from foot for accessories.

Dirt devil mvp not sucking


Could be bad filters, is there suction at the end of the hose. That will tell you which direction to start looking. If no suction at hose end, then filters could be the problem. If you have suction, then the problem is down lower, dirt inlet is clogged, if belt has never been changed, then I am sure it has stretch to the point that under load it doesn't turn like it should. Could even be that although the motor is running, it may be running at a slower speed, in which case it would have to be replaced.
