My bisslle 3596 clean view deluxe alway gets a clog of fur and dirt in the hose. my filters are clean and i on clog the problem shoud i take the vaccum apart? i haved to unclog at least once a week. its was a great vacum its been doing this for 4 months. i ready to just buy another vacuum for animals
I can only comment on what I did: Ran very hot water down the hose and used a 4 foot 3/4 inch dowel rod to push the clog down to the end where it hooks onto the vacuum. It clogs frequently with pets, you just have to keep cleaning it out.

Hi! It appears your thermal protector sensor has kicked in and caused your cleaner to power off. This is usually due to a clog or a filter that needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try these steps to get your vacuum back up & running!
1. Remove the dirt cup canister from the vacuum.Remove the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Clean the filter as suggested by the owner's manual.
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. Use a wooden spoon or something similar to loosen and remove any clogs from the lower hose.
Your vacuum should turn back on after it cools off, this can take up to an hour. Hope this helps!
that means there is no air flow thru your machine .. thats often caused by clogged (other) filters ..or sometimes a clogged hose .. you can check to make sure you can poke something thru the hose .. a stick or handle, hose or wire (making sure you dont poke thru the side of the hose) .. there are other filters and passageways in the unit that require cleaning or replacement .. if they get clogged then you will have your simptoms .. since there is lilttle air flow then the motor may overheat .. so dont run it long in that condition .. take all the "dirt cup" parts out and wash them all ...
check vac air filter(not the dirt collection bag) also something could be lodged in hose mechanism so there is always a partial restriction. make sure the beater bar is not set too low. check the dirt that accumulates in bag to see that there is not an excess number of carpet fibers in there. beater bar should be clean and spin freely.
That is the problem with the bagless cleaners. The dirt goes through the cup, directly to the filter. There is nothing to keep them seperate. You can try putting a single layer of paper towel against the filter. It will provide a breathable barrier for the dirt but, it will clog too.
Check the hose and take the bottom plate of the vacuum off to check for obstructions that you can't see right away. Use a wire coathanger (unwound) to push any clog through. I also have dogs and this vacuum. It does get clogged with fur occaisionally.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=109459&thid=699656 Model 116 hose clog? Posted by rfrazelle on Jun 23, 2008 My old canister model 116 followed with numbers 2839580 marked Kenmore 3.9 with power-mate, worked fine until the bag got overly full. I have changed the bag, cleaned the filter, and removed a nasty hair/fur/dust clog :-p from the lower metal tube of the power mate. It now has very weak suction and won't pick up anything. I suspect a clog in the grey plastic flexible tubing attached to the canister but cannot get it apart. Advice? RJ Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Kenmore 22313 Bagged Canister Vacuum. The best way to find a clog in an electric hose is to use a steel ball or a large marble to place inside the hose and to let it so threw as far as it can to determine where the hose clog is. Once you have determined where the hose clog is then you can use a small end of a broom handle of take an old wire coat hanger and place a hook on the end and try to pull the clog out of the electric hose – the electric hose is very expensive so try not to damage the hose in any way, shape or form. Or another way is that id you have another canister vacuum you can try to pull the clog apart by using two vacuums turned on and running. If you are successful then run the round marble or steel ball thru the hose again and the clog should be cleared. http://www.sears.com/Customer Service1-800-4-MY-HOME1-800-469-4663 Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.

Usually clogs are in the dirt inlet by the brush roll, or in the hose. Take the hose off from the bottom and see if there is suction, if not, then the hose is clogged. If suction there, then it is lower. Also is the brush roll turning, if not, that could be your problem.
