Question about Bissell Vacuums
This issue might be caused by different factors. And I'll give you some basic checking and troubleshooting that you may try to do to address the issue of having a low or almost no suction on the lower part of your machine.
1. First thing, check the dirt cup to make sure it is empty.
2. Your vacuum has 3 filters. Check out for debris on the inner and outer circular filters in the filter cup and the post-motor filter on the front of the machine. Also don't forget to check the upper-tank louvers. They may be removed and rinsed. Dirty filters will restrict air flow. To clean the filters:
4. If there is NOT good suction at the end of the hose with handle, remove the hose by twisting it off the back of the machine and check for suction on the vacuum. If the suction power is good, check the hose for cracks or splits and using a broomstick handle, push any dirt or debris through the hose.
Your problem may be something as simple as a broken drive belt or a filled dirt container. If you continue to experience low suction with your vacuum, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center.
Hope it helps.
