Bissell lift off pet-no suction through base (hose is fine)

I have the above mentioned vacuum. Suction is fine through the hose, but when the hose is connected to the base, there is barely any suction at all and it won't vacuum. I cleaned out as far as I could reach, but it still isn't working. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem with mine. When you take the collector container out, if you reach your hand up, you will fill a round, plastic piece. Gently turn it and the piece pulls out. On the outside of the piece is a foam filter that may be plugged. There is another filter underneath the collection container in a pull-out drawer. Both filters can be washed with cool water, allowed to dry totally, then replaced. I understand that both of these filters need to be washed "frequently". It worked for me, hope it works for you.

Then it has to be blocked in the dirt inlet by the brush roll. Also is the brush roll turning, sometimes it seems like no suction from the bottom, but the brush roll isn't turning?

Very poor suction


Hi Tina. I understand how frustrating no suction can be for I have the same vacuum at home.

Dirty filters or clogs can reduce the suction. Here is a quick link to troubleshooting steps to assist you:

No suction


The simple solution would be a clog in or leading to the hose. Unless you here a air leak it does not need a new o ring. If there is no clog then you need to take it to your local vac shop for repair.

No suction when hose is removed from base


Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!

Bissel Pro Heat Turbo attachment does not work.


Something is probably clogging up the suction.
Try to snake it out with a coat hanger or similar tool.
Often, especially with shedding pets hair will clog the suction pipes
Hope this is helpful.

Good Luck!

Loss of suction bissell vacume


that is normal for the vacume to shut off if the motor overheats you must keep teh dirt cup clean and empty and all the filters clean, when you empty the dirt cup if you have a lot of pet hair take the hose off and make sure that it is clean as well, and do not try to pick up any of those cleaning wipes that will stop it up real quick

Bissell Lift Off pet revolution vacuum losing suction


You may have a clog in the hose. Unhook the hose and see how the suction is there, if ok, then check the dirt inlet by the brush roll. If suction is low at the hose, then there is a clog in it.
