SOURCE: Bissel Vaccum giving a foul odour

Hi - here are a few tips!
If the filters are washable they have to be dried completely before putting back into the machine, otherwise you're damaging your vacuum by putting in damp filters which won't do much but put back the stale smell into the home. Generally washing filters should be done with a little washing up liquid, washed out, rinsed, drip dry and dried over 24 hours to room temperature naturally (not on a radiator or heater).
Faster drying should employ the use of a low temperature tumble dryer with the filters placed in a pillow case with a towel added to prevent banging off the sides of the electric dryer when in operation.
Also, whilst the filters are drying take off the main hose of the Clearview and wash it out with washing powder with the hose laid in the bath. Alternatively put wet wipes or cleaning wet wipes down the hose with a stick to get out all matter of dirt - clearview hoses are the worst for stinking especially if you have pets. That should improve the general way of your vacuum and giving it a more neutral smell. Also when everything is dried out inclduing the hose, sprinkle some bicarbonate of soda around so that the vacuum picks it up and neutralises previous odours that the vacuum had from the beater bar/floor head.

Upon turning on vaccum it starts ok, but a second later it spits out some dust dirt out and does not vaccum. We hear like a poof suction when this happens. Cleaned all the tubes around it, but thinking...


The poof suction sound you hear is most likely the suction release valve opening up because there is a clog or restriction somewhere. If you don't feel qualified it is usually a better idea to take it to a qualified repair facility.

I removed the handle of my Dyson DC24 to vaccum in high areas and now when i try to put the back piece back, it doesn't click. So when try to vaccum on the floor the handle just comes off.


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your DC24. The wand handle should reattach easily to the machine, locking into place with an audible 'click'. If it doesn't seem to be doing this, you may want to check you have the handle facing the correct way round, with the red release catch at the front. You may also want to check the wand and hose for any blockages - for guidance on doing this, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide:

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Took bag completely off and now I can't put it back together


Put the outer bag back on the unit. Make sure that you have pushed the outer bag down past a black lip. The piece that holds the inner and outer bag on the vacuum needs to be put on next. The small horseshoe shaped plastic piece goes on with hte open part down. Make sure that the docking station goes behind the lip I told you about. Next put the piece that the inner bag slides into on. This should have the bag back on the vacuum and ensure that it is on properly. If not, then it will pull of pretty easy and blow dirt into the outer bag...not the one that is meant to catch the dirt....I am a manager of an Oreck store.

It is a dirt devil Royal which I use to vaccum stair steps. it is a new vaccum . not it will not work, the brush will not rotate. I looked to see if some hair was the problem but no hair or fuss. ...


Hi, I am sorry it took this long to get back to you and I promise I will get right on this. We are having issues with our e mail notifications.
You say this is a new vacuum, do you mean brand new? never used before? I am going to look into the dirt devil problems and see if we can narrow down the causes. I assume you tried this in several outlets to make sure it is not the outlet. Does the motor run at all? or is it running but the brush not turning and not picking up dirt.?

My Bissell will not **** up pet hair or dirt


Hello,
Dirt hair and such will build up in the hoses of that vacum. Take them apart stretch them out and run something through them to make sure they are clean.
The other problem is the filter in the bottom of the cup. At least on some models there is a filter that gets totally pligged with dirt and dust. Take it apart, wash it out and them put everything back together.

Extreme vaccum has no suction.


Make sure you put the dirt cone back in the bucket to create the tight seal. You will have no suction without the dirt cone.

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out


There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

I need more suction. The Head is too high on my carpet.


Hi.

A slitght adjustment can be made by either screwing on short transparant internal hose on top of floor head tighter or undoing it turn.

Do this on A table as you need to get down to be able to view sole pate movement

Each time you adjust hose stand vac up on the table & pull handle back as if cleaning carpet you must not push head of vac down on the table.

Now look at sole plate usually when they are wrong the sole plate bottom back end tilts up lifting brush from carpet.

Now tap front of head down if sole plate springs back up lifting brush up again adjust hose a bit more.

What you are trying to do is get sole plate as horizontal as you can.

If you really cant get it to pick up dirt any better try fitting new hose they are more sprigier from new,
