Check for blockage in the hose (if it can be removed, the motor should sound less 'labored' if the path is clear), check or replace the filter bag. (For cannister types). Uprights may have a blockage in the tubing from the pickup head to the motor.

Why does powerforce works fine,but make an awful noise


Your fins on your vaccuum have become damaged/gummed up and the motor is vibrating. You may have sucked up change etc and damaged the blades. Will be cheaper to buy a new one unless still under warranty.

Bissell PowerForce Turbo: The motor spindle becomes very hot while spinning, causing the new belt to burn and break. Is this because the motor is overheating?


Something is preventing the brush roller from turning even though it seeems to be OK when not in contact with the floor. The motor shaft is spinning on one spot of the belt, causing the heating, the smell, and eventual belt failure. I have had brush rollers that appeared OK but proved to have pet hair jammed between the end caps and the roller itself causing rotation to be very difficult

My bissell power force bagless model 6594-w vaccuum is not sucking up when vaccuuming but if i use the hose it works


Remove the bottom plate that covers the brush assembly and check the air passage that goes out where the vacuum is jointed between the vertical parts and the sweeper head. Look for any clog in that area. A bent hook on the end of a piece of coat hanger wire is a good tool for cleaning clogs. Hope this helps!

Vaccum problem


No sound at all? or the motor runs but no vaccuum?
did it stop while using it? might have overheated due to dirty filters... strange that the light comes on but no motor at all... that would suggest to me that the motor is shot...

Here is a link the the manual.. there is no reference to any user accessable fuse or breaker...


Peace,

I have the bissell powertrak revolution. I have hardwood floors...even on the lowest setting it is throwing some dirt back at me instead of picking it up....


do not worry about this....it is a common issue with every brand of vacume this style....the poblem is not of power or quality..but rather one of friction or lack of resistance because of the smooth floor surface....carpet surfaces permit the brush part of the roller to FLICK the dirt back up high enough ( only millimeters) to be sucked by the continuous suction flow of the vacume...however smooth finished hardwood or tile floors allow for the heavier none dust particules on your floors to be swept accross the floor with speed...if there was a back drop on the back end of your vacume cleaner these particules would be stoped and sucked up....try taping a strip of brstle board paper with scotch tape to the back part of ur vame head and see if it makes a differnce. Put the paper at dragging floor level and tape it..then sprinkle some dried toast on the bare floor and try it....let me know if it works...

Check your filter. Sounds like it is not receiving enough suction to pull up the debris. If your filters are clean and there are no clogs, disconnect hose from back by the tank and see if you have suction straight out of the whole.
