The full bag indicator light on my machine is red. What does this mean?

Answer: Check the bag on your machine to see if it is more than half full. If it is, change the bag. Make sure the pre-motor and post-motor filters are clean. Detach the hose from the machine and turn on the unit. If the indicator stays green, the hose may be clogged. In this case, disconnect the hose from the unit and disconnect the attachment from the hose. Carefully insert a broomstick handle to remove any obstruction. If the bag indicator light is still red, please have your machine inspected at a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center. To locate your nearest BISSELL Authorized Service Center, go to the BISSELL Homepage at: http://www.bissell.com. Select the "Customer Service" tab at the top of the page and then select "Service Centers" from the drop down menu. Enter your zip code to perform your search. You can also locate a Service Center by phone, 24 hours a day, by calling 1-800-237-7691 and choosing option #1. For assistance by phone, please call BISSELL Consumer Services at 1-800-237-7691, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., or Saturday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., ET.
