Possibly the slider release is broken and needs replacement.

How do i put the plastic bagless part back


I have an Bissel Cleanview Helix which I think is similar. The lock'n seal lever has to be in the unlock position first. Place the filter cup in first and then the Dirt container next and hold it in place and move the lock'seal lever to the lock position. I hope that this has helped you.

Brushes won't turn and vacuum will not pick up sprayed cleaner


There's a Capt. Obvious fix to check before you go any farther. Like many vacuum cleaners, the brushes on the Bissell carpet cleaners, by design, only spin when the handle is not locked in the upright position, so be sure to plug it in, turn it on, and depress the foot pedal to lower the handle while watching the brushes one more time to be sure that the fix isn't that easy.

If the brushes still won't spin with the handle in the unlocked position, lift the handle back up into the locked position, power off and unplug the Bissell, and look down and see if either of the two belts that make the brushes spin are broken, as a broken belt, or a belt that's come off the track, is the next most likely problem. Both belts must be unbroken and in the right place for the roller brushes to spin.

These belts can be seen in the clear plastic pieces on either end of the roller brushes. If you're having trouble locating them, **with the Bissell unplugged so the brushes won't suddenly start spinning and hurt your hand**, try spinning the brushes with your fingers while watching for the belts. They're black, about the thickness of two quarters, and the bigger one of the two (on the left end of the roller brushes, as you face the front of the Bissell), is just big enough to fit around both roller brushes. The smaller belt, goes around the back roller brush on the right and to a smaller cog wheel behind it. If you see a broken belt, or a belt off the track, that's your problem.

Here's a video you can watch for free on Bissell's website that tells how to replace a belt. I'm sure the belts can be ordered online somewhere or found at some Bissell dealers or repair shops. Note, again, the two belts are different. If only one is broken, be sure to order the correct one.

If the belts are intact and in the right place, does the metal cog wheel behind the roller brush right turn when the Bissell is on and the handle is dropped? If not, then the motor that turns that cog wheel must be burned out.

Bissell carpet cleaner brushes won't turn


Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.

If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.

Foot pedal broken
Posted by Monte79 on May 28, 2008
I have Bissell Power Steamer Clear view IIII #3105403. I let someone borrow it (mistake #1) and he over extended the foot pedal that angles the upright during use. The pedal is still connected, but the power steamer is locked in the upright position. There is also a bit of dirty water in the bucket, and i cannot empty it because it's basically locked in now. HELP

Hello,

Sorry you are having a problem with your Bissell, it sounds like he bent the handle release lever and you either need to bend it back or replace it depending on the level of damage to the item. Please feel free to contact the Bissell factory to see the best way to fix the problem, it is not an expensive fix however so contact your local vac dealer or get a referral from the Bissell factory for the nearest Bissell authorized dealer in your area.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hello,

Not knowing the brand name and the model # it sounds to me that you have a broken handle release if that is what you are referring to as “Upright Lock Broken” – the handle release lever keeps the hand staying up and in the upright position. So include @ least the brand name and or the model # and I can try to further assist you. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

High pitched screeching/broken handle release


For the handle problem, detent lever part #2030052 and costs $4 to $5. A bearing in the motor is what is making it sound bad, part #2032211 and will cost around $60. You could try bissell.com or call them. They can at least let you know who has Bissell parts near you.

Foot Pedal was knocked out of alignment


You will have to take the top loose so you can put the handle release in its place. It probably isn't in the right place, either that or a piece of it broke off and it needs to be replaced.
