My PowerForce Bagless vacuum is very loud. What can I check?
Answer: To get your machine functioning properly, please check the inner and outer circular filters and the post-motor filter for debris. Also check the upper-tank louvers. These can be removed and rinsed clean. Failure to properly maintain the filters could result in damage to the motor. A clogged hose may also cause the vacuum to sound abnormal. To clear the hose, remove this completely from the back of the machine and using a broomstick handle, push any dirt or debris through the hose. Remove the lower hose by the screw which attaches it and straighten this section of hose and remove any debris. If your machine continues to be excessively loud, please contact a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center.
