Question about Bissell 220522 CleanView Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Blockage in Tube

My Bissell CleanView upright vacuum is experiencing significantly reduced suction. There seems to be a blockage in the tube because when I unscrew and remove the tube and place my hand over the hole in the back suction power is restored.


I've tried with a wire coat hanger to reach the block but to no avail. It seems to be lodged at the base of the hand piece where it meets the flexible tube. I can't figure out how to remove the hand piece.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Check your pick up tube. Use a straitened wire hangar to push up tube and check blockage. You also may need to change the bag. Some bags sides will clog with fine dust and reduce the suction.

sounds like there is blockage in the suction hose -- lay the machine down and remove the lower floor plate and clean out the hose area where it bends down to the floor unit ( use a wire coat hanger to fish out the blockage ). also check the main hose for any obstructions.

My bissell helix is blowing out the dirt it picks up


sounds like you have a blockage in the suction hose --- 9 times out of 10 the blockage is at the area of the machine where the hose kinda bends down to the floor unit. remove the bottom plate ( like you were going to replace the belt ) and look up into the hose and see if it is clogged -- use a wire coat hanger to fish out any debris. also check the main filter and tap out and use a brush to clean as good as you can ( a air compressor works best for this ) .. ( some filters are made to be washed in the dish washer,, check to see if your filter can ba washed ),, after all is clean and clear your vacume should be running like new again.

No suction of the water from carpet after soap is applied


Hello :

1: A vacuum pulls air through the bag, then through the tube attachment and then through the base (with the spinning agitator brush).

2:Check for signs of suction. Remove the tube attachment from its cradle and, after turning on the vacuum, put your hand to the end of the tube. Is there any suction at all? If there is a little bit of suction then you may have a clogged air tube.

3:Check the vacuum bag. It may be very full. If it is then remove the bag and replace it with a new bag. Check the suction power again. Has the suction improved?

4:Check the tube attachment. Completely remove it from the vacuum. You usually have to twist and pull the tube attachment out of place at the point where it connects to the back of the vacuum. Check the suction power again. This time you place your hand on the vacuum right where the tube used to come out of the back of the vacuum. Has the suction improved?

5:If the suction power has improved then you probably have a clogged tube. Dog hair, people hair, leaves and more can get lodged in the tube slowly over time and then suddenly block the tube completely.

6:Clean the tube by first trying to shake the debris out of the tube. If this does not work then go outside and run a hose through the tube. Use a pressure nozzle if you have one. Run the hose through one end of the tube. Then run it through the other end. Repeat until the debris is disloged. Dry the tube and then reattach to the vacuum.

7:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

8:Check the air hose in the base of the vacuum. This hose is usually pretty short and you can see if there is any blockage. If you see blockage then try to remove it. You may need to reach into the hose with a tool (like a screw driver or something long).

9:Has suction power improved or returned to normal power? If yes then you can stop reading now. If not then read on.

10:If you made it to this step then you may have a problem with the motor on your vacuum. If this is the case then you will need to take the vacuum in to a repair shop.

Things you will need :
1 Philips screw driver
1 flat head screw driver

Warning :


# Always unplug electrical devices before you work on them.

# Never work on electrical devices around water or when you are wet.

I hope this will help .

My vacuum tools have very weak suction.


There is a foam ring filter in the bottom of the canister that collects the dirt. It screws off of the bottom on the canister. Take outside and shake it out. It fixed our suction problem.

No suction from underneath , plenty suction via hose.


There must be a blockage in the machine base. Unplug the machine lie it completely flat and turn it over, open the orange or grey trap door and clear the blockage. Also inspect the area where the hose/tube connects to the machine.

Bissell cleanview vacuum poor suction


The next thing that you need to do is replace the belt. Even if it's not cracked or worn, many times it's too loose, and it won't turn to rotor efficiently.

Believe it or not, just replacing the belt may be all that you need to do!
