Bissell Healthy Home

I have a bissell healthy home vacuum cleaner which was purchased about 6 months ago. It has lost suction power signicantly. I have emptied the canister and there are no blockages I can find. Is there a filter somewhere that could be clogged?

    My bissell won't turn on the motor goes on but the brush is not on when its suppose to be.....I cleaned it recently and found it does not work now. I think that the vacuum is good but that there is a flaw in the design.

I am having the same problem with my vacuum. i have tried everything I can think of. We just got it in December! For the price of this vacuum, if it isn't something simple, I'm going to return it.

I had the same issue after using it daily for over a year. I checked everything and found no clog. I brought it to a vacuum cleaner repair center and they found a clog in the motor. It cost me $25 and was well worth it. I love this vacuum

1. Make sure the hose attachment is pushed all the way down into its receptacle. It will click softly when it's all the way down.

2. Detach the hose from the machine. Do this by twisting the grey fitting on the back of the machine. (Note: leave the attachment end of the hose plugged into the machine) Turn the machine on. Hold your hand over the hose fitting. If there's strong suction then there is a blockage in the hose.

3. If not, check in the fitting to see if something is stuck in there. On the back of the machine there is a long clear tube that travels down the back of the machine. Sometimes larger peices of paper get stuck in there. If something is in this tube, take a phillips screwdrive, remove the 7 black screws off and remove the blockage. Reassemble and try the machine.

4. There are two filters on this machine. The one that may be clogged and affecting the suction is located below the canister in the front of the machine. Simply pull ouot the tray and reomve the grey foam filter to clean. Rinse it out with warm water then allow it to dry. Replace in its tray then slide the tray back into the machine. The other filter is the HEPA filter and has nothing to do with the suction of the unit. It is an exhaust filter and does need to be changed at least once a year. It filters the air coming out of the machine. The first few times we used ours the whole house smelled "clean". Whne a new filter is placed in the machine that "clean" snmell returns. The filters are $25 apiece at Amazon.com.

5. As a maintainence item, remove the canister as though you were going to empty it. Place it on the ground, locate the two buttons (one clear plastic/one blue) on the front and back of the canister and remove the clear plasctic housing. This will allow you to clean the hundreds of little holes on the grey surface of the top of this section. (This looks like a circular colender.) To clean this, use an old toothbrush and scrub the dust and stuff into your grabage can. I do this once or twice a year. (Since I have a Shop Vac in the garage, I use this instead of a toothbrush.)

Hope this helps.

Bissell healthy home vacuum will not turn on. I have checked everything on the vacuum. All the filters are clean and there are no clogs. I have had it for 10 months with no issues until now.


- The handle may not be installed properly, causing a loss in the power connection. Remove the handle completely. Slide the handle back into place on the lower section of handle and tighten the screw.

How do you change the belt on a bissell 5770


The Bissell 5770/Healthy Home vacuum is actually fairly easy to change the belt on. The main thing you will need is a T20 screwdriver with at least a 4 inch shaft and a Phillips-head screwdriver. Four of the six T20 screws on the bottom plate are easy to locate, the last two are set deeper into the vacuum near the wheels. Once you have taken all six T20 screws out you will have to release the lock preventing the vacuum from tilting back so you can easily remove the top plate and gain access to the brush assembly. With the top plate off you will notice four Phillips-head screws holding a cover plate over the brush, simply remove them and you have full access to the belt.

On the Healthy Homes Vac, did you check the switch for the vac, there are 2 on the handle, and the one could be open. Check the wiring at the motor, could even be the motor itself. If at the motor there is a thermostat, it could be bad, but comes with the motor.
