The filter behind the unit is out of alignment or damaged.
so remove and clean the collected dirt, replace the filter, look for damage here to make the sucked dirt fly over.

My Hoover Elite Rewind just lost power while vacuuming and wont power back on?


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. Twist off the dirt cup lid.
2. Remove the primary foam filter. Hold filter under running water until water runs clear. Squeeze out the filter and allow 24 hours to air dry.
3. Slide the Hepa filter out. Tap the filter against the trash can until dirt stops falling. Replace the Hepa filter. (Do not wash)
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!

How do i clean canister of dirt devil featherlight bagless caniter vacuum


Hi there! To clean the canister or dirt cup, first remove the dirt cup from the vacuum. Twist off the dirt cup lid. Remove the pleated filter and empty the dirt cup. Tap the filter against the trash can until the dirt stops falling. If the filter is really dirty it may need to be replaced. The filter should be replaced every 6 months. I have included a link where you may go to purchase a replacement filter if needed.

Thanks! Hope this helps!

When you remove the hose to use the utensils, the dirt is flying out of the hose at the bottom where the utensil is removed from


Hi Karen. I understand how frustrating this can be. Dust blowing from the bottom hose is normal because the brush is still rotating. If there's excessive dirt flying out, then you may have a clog in the bottom hose.
Here's a quick link to check for clogs: http://www.bissell.com/FAQDetail.aspx?id=1419&cid=ccsocial

Hose works. Brush spins, but dirt flies out the back. Have had for less than 6 months.


I have found with a vacuum under a year old that it should be taken back when ever poss to the shop aslong as you have the garrentee as if you try and repair it you can not take it back afterwards

How do you empty it?


There is a black clip at the top of the dirt cup which holds the dirt cup in place on this vacuum. Pull back on this clip with one hand and with the other you will be able to remove the entire dirt cup assembly. Once the dirt cup assembly is off remove the lid, and take the bottom portion to the trash can and dump. Tap the side of the cup slightly to remove excess dirt. Romove the dirt cup filter inside and do the same. Replace the fiter and the lid and put it back on to the machine. You should replace the dirt cup filter every 6 months to a year. Part is below:

Bissell powerforce bagless vacuum,when turned on dust flies out sweeper


Dust flying out of the sweeper indicates that their is a blockage in the pathway that the dirt normally travels to get into the dirt collection chamber. Turn the sweeper upside down and look for a blockage of some kind. Also, empty out the canister and look to see that the pathway into the canister is clear.

Check further down, by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged, or something like a nail or pin wedged sideways in the hose, and catches debris and clogs up. This has a one year warranty, if you still can't firgure it out, take it to a warranty shop and take proof of purchase with you.
