Question about Bissell Vacuums

1 Answer

I have had my Bissell 6591-X for 2 years. I hate it! No matter what I do all the fuzz, hair, whatever fills up around the upper filter before it even starts to deposit in the cup. It has done this ever since I bought it. No matter how much I take it apart, clean it, clean filters, empty the cup, nothing does any good. I spill more dirt onto the vacuum and floor than ever gets in the cup. I will never buy another Bissell.

Machine no power seems very hot


Vacuum cleaners easily overheat and will shut off as a result. The cause may be a bad electric connection, electric cord or accumulation of hair on the roller bar (prevents the bar from spinning, which burns up the motor). It might be a temporary problem or the motor might have burned up. Let it cool down, check all cords and connections carefully and retry it. You can call Bissell 1-800-237-7691 for more help if this doesn't resolve it

Bissell powertrak revolution dirt not going into cup


If the unit is not blocked between pickup and filter have a good look at the filter to see if air is passing through it---paper throwaway or foam filter the can be washed?

The ones that can be washed etc will have instructions right on them.

The User Guide for the bissell Clearview Power Trak

May not be your exact model but should be similar.

The Bissel vacuums include an internal thermal protector to protect it from overheating. When the thermal protector activates, the cleaner will stop running. Should this happen proceed as follows:

1. Turn the cleaner OFF and unplug from electrical outlet.

2. Check the Pre-Motor Filter and Post-Motor Filter for dirt accumulation.

3. Remove any clogs.

4. When the vacuum is unplugged and motor cools for approximately 30 minutes, the thermal protector should automatically resets and cleaning may continue.

5. If the thermal protector continues to activate after following the above steps, your cleaner may need servicing. Call Bissell Customer Service:

The brush is clean and spinning but it isnt picking up anything and just pushing pet hair around.


You mentioned pet hair. Remove the brush cover and check for a plug (possibly pet hair). Sounds as though you have a plug somewhere and it's not allow the suction to pull it through. Also check your filter and clean or replace as necessary. Hint; Never let you container get over half full, it reduces the suction.

My first time using this..I just want to know where the water goes and where the soap goes..I don't have directions..I was looking for the directions on here but don't see it.. This is a bissell proheat...


hi,

okay the under the lid of the big tank has a place for regular hot water theres a flexible inner bladder inside the main tank- fill that with hot water. When your shampooing the dirty water fills in around it, also between the back wheels theres where the resolve/bissell detergent goes. we use regular washing machine liquid diluted 50/50 in the soap dispenser , its cheaper and does the same thing..also, if you have pets, the bissels have a brush roller mechanism that gets clogged with pet hair quickly and will self destruct, every few rows stop and see how much pet hair is around those rollers and remove it.
