Check both filters. If one or other is increasingly dirty, wash or clean it out. Also check the air waves leading to the bagless bin canister part. If one air way is blocked the remaining dirt will try and access the bin other way due to the natural vacuum suction aspect.

My Bissell will not **** up pet hair or dirt


Hello,
Dirt hair and such will build up in the hoses of that vacum. Take them apart stretch them out and run something through them to make sure they are clean.
The other problem is the filter in the bottom of the cup. At least on some models there is a filter that gets totally pligged with dirt and dust. Take it apart, wash it out and them put everything back together.

Not picking up cleaned all of filters is there a belt for this


It might be because the belt is broken, stretched or worn. In all of these cases the vacuum won't pick up well. You can get the replacement belts for this model and download the manual which has instructions on how to change the belt here:

I have a Lift Off Pet Bagless upright and ever since I **** up a hair tie it hasn't been **** up the dog hair from my carpet. I have gotten the hair tie out of the vacuum but it is still not **** up.


One of the reasons it might not be picking up is because you have a worn belt. The other reason could be that the suction channel is clogged. Did you remove the hair tie you ****up? If you need a replacement belt you can get it here: Bissell Lift-Off Pet Replacement Belt

Smell is like old dirt, animal hair and possible **** smell.


Hi there it's SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The smell is likely stored in your pre motor filter. This can usually be washed out and reinserted. I would also give your canister a really good clean generally while your in maintenance mode.

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.
