Question about Dirt Devil Vision Turbo W/Bonus Upright Vacuum Vacuum

1 Answer

Vacuum Problem My dirt devil vacuum is losing suction and keeps clogging. All the dirt keeps sticking to the screen by the filter and then it would stop working. Also the hose does not have a strong suction power either. So what can I do?

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.

What causes poor suction on model ud40270? It seems like a lot of air is blowing out the front where the filter is.


Susan:

First, remove and clean or replace all of the filters in the machine. There is an inlet filter above the dirt collection cup. and an exhaust filter at the front lower part of the top of the vacuum head. If either filter is clogged, you'll get poor suction. Also lay the machine on it's back, and check the tunnel where the dirt goes up into the machine (behind the beater bar) to see that it is not clogged.

No suction


Check the main filter cone - if it has a rip in it, then there won't be any suction in it, also clean it gently with a paint brush to get all of the dust out and check the back of the upright after the bin is taken out as sometimes there is dirt clogged at the back. Check the front of the sole plate i.e. where the roller brush is and check the dust channel behind this as it can get clogged. Due to the nature of this vacuum with the hose being located at the front of the floor head dirt can be trapped but most of all its the paper pleated cone filter that needs a good brushing. Hope that helps.

Either it needs a new belt, they stretch and break, then won't turn the brush roll. The dirt inlet by the brush roll is clogged, the hose may have a clog in it, filters are bad. If the hose comes off on one end, is there suction there, is so then the clog is farther down. If no suction, then the clog is in the hose or filter.
