My BISSELL CleanView bagless appears to be blowing dust. How do I correct this?
Answer: The CleanView bagless has 3 filters, the pre-motor filter (located on the slide-out tray below the dirt canister), the upper-tank filter (located in the upper-tank assembly), and the post-motor filter (located in the compartment on the side of the machine). If these filters are dirty, it will reduce the air-flow and can lead to clogs. Clogs in turn, can cause the unit to blow air. Each of the filters on the CleanView can be removed and hand-washed unless you have a white HEPA Media Filter*. Allow the filters to dry completely before replacing.
The upper-tank can be removed by turning the "key" in the back of the unit and then pulling the upper-tank assembly out from the front. You may also want to remove the entire flex hose and check for clogs by removing the two screws at the cuff where the hose enters the machine. This will allow you to thoroughly inspect the hose for clogs.
If these troubleshooting tips do not solve the problem, please have a technician at a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center inspect your machine.
