I wash it in hot water and let the disposal catch the dirt. The eureka can be a pain in the *** because the filter is pleated, a tooth pick helps with that. You have to let it dry completely after that, and the vac works like new

Bissel carpet cleaner not sucking up dirty water why ?

Sounds like a clogged filter. Try cleaning the Flow Indicator Filter (turn Flow Indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it, lift out rotor and filter under it. Clean filter and reinstall in reverse order); Check and Lint filter on the Heater tank Cap. All filters are recommended to be cleaned after each use. Bissell Consumer Care number is 1-800-237-7691

The upholstery tool on my bissell lift off deep cleaner sprays bUT doesn't suction?

The lint filter on the water tank cover may be the reason for that. Try cleaning the Filters. Clean the Flow Indicator Filter: Unscrew the Flow Indicator Cap to remove it. Lift out the rotor and the filter is under it. Lift out the filter and clean. The Water Tank Filter looks like a screen on the underneath the front area of the cover. It's held in with tension and just pulls out. Clean it and replace it. Hope that Helped but if it didn't call the consumer care at 1-800-237-7691

Why is there no suction or extration of wateron my bissell pro heat pet ?

Your filters may be clogged. The User Guide states that filters are to cleaned after each use. To clean them Turn the Flow Indicator Cap counter-clockwise and remove it. Lift out the rotor and filter. Clean filter and reinstall in reverse order. There is also a Lint Filter on the Hot Water Tank Cap that you should clean as well. When these get clogged they seem to do funny things. Hope I helped.

If you mean 'it will not turn on, only hiccups and blinks its lights, turning the filter does not (or at least not reliably) turn on the machine, nor does pushing the power button' the cause might be the controller board which sits between the filter holders in front of the machine. On that controller board you'll find a large-ish HQX (or similar) 1uf capacitor which is part of the power supply for the microcontroller (MCU, underneath the board). That capacitor might have lost so much of its capacity that the power supplied to the MCU goes below spec when the motor starts drawing power, leading to a reset.

Replace that capacitor with a similar or bigger version and it might just work again. In my machine I replaced the 1uF HQX X2 (250V~'275V~GMF) with a 2uF SHW 250V~ ripped from an old fence charger and the machine came back to life.


The large capacitor on the right side of the board is the one I replaced.

While you're at it, check the soldering on the controller and sensor boards and reflow anything which looks suspicious, there were a few cold joints on the sensor board on my machine which caused intermittent problems. Also clean the vacuum tube between the pressure sensor (on the left side of the machine) and the air intake (on the right side) and blow out the dust from the nipple which that tube connects to, on the right side of the machine in the air intake duct. You might also find the rubber hoses used to connect the tube to the pressure sensor and the nipple to have grown so much in size that they do not fit tightly. I solved this by pushing some insulation sleeve (ripped from an old wire) over those nipple.s, this makes those connections air-tight again.

Has no suction

1. Remove dust collector compartment/s. Look for any filters, remove and clean. (Make sure you DO NOT clean filters with water.) Take filter/s outside and "slap" them against a flat surface. (Filter will be very messy to clean)
2. Replace all filters and compartments.
3. Also try using a wire hanger and try to reach as far down the hose as possible to remove any obstruction/s.

Note: Clean vacuum filters frequently to ensure proper suction.

How do I clean the filters?
Comment by Avonb, posted on Apr 22, 2008 I have a Bagless twin clean, thought I was cleaning the filters but apparently not, the manual is very vague

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Not knowing the Model # or Brand name, it is a good idea that you can vacuum of the filters, if you have a blower – you can blow off the dirt from the filters, some filters are washable and you can clean them by washing them and letting them dry completely before you re-install the filters. Idea? If you have an old paint brush, that is ideal to clean off HEPA filters or cartridge filters or use a blower to clean off the dirt. You need to be the best judge on how to clean the filters. You can check the company’s website for the brand name such as: ---- example given
