Rated 1 out of 5 by Erica26 Better off sweeping the carpet...
I have had this vacuum for 14 months. It worked awesome the first 2 months, then it started clogging. Then the belt kept falling off. I replaced the belt and it STILL keeps falling off (yes, I put it in correctly). This is just a horrible home appliance and I can't wait until I can replace it with something that actually works. Even when the belt stays on the suction is poor. This vacuum throws more dust around my apartment than there was to begin with! It is literally useless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SFlorida 1986 CleanView Model 9595
I have had a Bissell steam carpet cleaner for years so when I needed a new vacuum, I thought of Bissell. The reviews of the 9595 left me wondering because of repeated complaints such as motor overheats, level control doesn't work, etc. I watched the review of this product on YouTube/vacbin and that sold me. I heard only praise and no complaints. I especially paid attention to the test of the 9595 vs a Shark that costs much more money. The Bissell 9595 won!
On receiving the cleaner via UPS, I put it to the real test - prove its worth to ME! I am still dumfounded with how much dirt and debris the cleaner removed from a 5' x 7' area rug plus bare floors. Also, I might add, the level control worked perfectly, the motor did not overheat and the machine didn't sling debris out of the back when I was doing the bare floors.
This vacuum replaces a machine from a different brand that has seen better days after more than 10 years of use. I have a feeling that 10 years from today I shall still be using the Bissell Model 9595.

Rated 5 out of 5 by johndem1x The Best Vacuum ever ownd , From my wifes own words
My wife just loves this Vacuum because it works very well for being so light and easy to handle . If she see me using it she will tell me to use that shop vacuum I thought was so great . She likes the way it can dump the dirt without getting your hands dirty , That alone is one cool thing just drop the dirt right into the trash can pop the canister right back in and keep on cleaning . Also has a nice long cord but not to long to get messed up and when your done you just wind up the cord on the cord loop hooks and then store the Vacuum away. For the price we paid I feel we got our moneys worth that's for sure. You can see for yourself , Just get one and treat yourself to a really clean home . My wife states it is better than the higher price vacuums out there . She would highly recommend it than those who claim there's are the best. That's just a sales pitch you get from the ones that don't even use the vacuum. My wife tells it like it is believe me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KD Great little vacuum
Ok, I waited a full year to write this review. This is an awesome vacuum! It's easily the best one I've owned so far! I got this to replace a 3 year-old bagged vacuum and in a house with then 1 dog who (due to seasonal change) shed constantly. It was not up to the challenge, and honestly even after extensive maintenance, hardly had any suction. I started looking at more expensive pet specific vacuums in the $$$ range. As my search went on the pet hair issue became unbearable. I read some pretty favorable reviews on this model, and decided to take the plunge and buy it. I got it, assembled it (quick), and immediately it performed beyond expectations! The suction was unlike anything I had ever seen and I was emptying a full canister of almost all dog hair every couple of minutes. I went through the whole house that night, and have never looked back. Now, one year on, with two dogs, I have maintained the vacuum. The suction is still awesome. My only complaint is that the suction is so powerful that using the hose attachments required some strength to pull the hose away from the vacuum. This has eased overtime and usage...or maybe I've just gotten stronger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jenn Pleasantly surprised, and 100% satisfied!!
My husband and I purchased our new vacuum today. I was shocked, and a bit disgusted by the amount of debris the vacuum had picked up with just one pass. I didn't realize just how much ground-in dirt had settled into our carpets. Our children are 12, eight, and six years old so our carpets see quite a bit of traffic from just our family alone on a daily basis. I am confident in saying that the Bissell family of products have earned new customers for life. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jpas4 Love this vacuum
I have now had this vacuum for a few months. I waited to write this review so I can really tell if this is a good product or not. I had moved into a new apartment and the first time we used the vacuum I was surprised how much dust/dirt it picked up. Even the air quality in the room changed. I have a cat and I use the attachment turbo brush to vacuum the couch and his cat tree which leaves both very clean. I have had visitors not even realize I own a cat because the vacuum does such a good job in picking up fur and litter. My boyfriend loves using the vacuum since it's easy to use. Which is funny because he dislikes vacuuming/cleaning. Since it has good suction it has reduced his allergies (less cat hair, dust and better air quality). The canister does a good job in keeping all the dust in. The vacuum is also easy to clean. So far this vacuum works just as good as when we first used it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by julienb Debris falls everywhere when cleaning it!!
I thought about spending more $$ on a vacuum would do the trick: vacuum carpet, hard surfaces, stairs and light pet hair. After a month, the lever to press for hard surface cleaning stopped working; now spits debris backwards when cleaning the bare floor. When the vacuum is full and I take it apart to clean, you better be outside, because dirt falls out everywhere, not to mention having to put your hand inside to get debris that is caught inside, you will get filthy and again, debris flies out and you have another mess all over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntyAnn Awesome vacuum cleaner especially if you have pets.
I purchased this item after I had read reviews comparing different cleaners and this one got the highest rating for suction, value, lightweight but still powerful, etc. I have a disability which limits the amount of weight I can handle. It was quite a shock seeing all the dog hair that was picked up on its first use. This is a great machine. I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Searcher 37 Works great but:
I rarely write reviews and frankly I don't rely on them too much, but I felt I needed to write this one in hopes the manufacturer would see it and become aware of some problems.
This vacuum does by far the best job of any I have ever had before.
Amazing pick up and leaves carpets not only clean, but fluffed and soft to walk on.
But: Keeping it clean is very difficult. Reason being that the latches will not open easily. And I mean all of them. The top part where the washable filter hides is the worst. I have to get my husband to open it and he can do it only because he is not afraid of breaking it. I am afraid, and I suspect it will break at some point.
The so called "easy clean from open bottom" is not too hard to open, but it is very awkward. The bottom lid is in the way and does not come off so you can shake out and clean the container.
The center filter piece is another problem. It is hard to find just the right place to put it and if you do it wrong, it is even harder to get it out again.
I'm not sure how long I can put up with these real inconveniences. And it is such a shame, because when it is clean and put together correctly it does a fantastic job.
It is not too heavy, it is easy to push around, it is not very noisy and the machine is colorful and very sturdy.
Many complained about the switch being too low. It could be better, but that would not stop me from buying this vacuum. Some complained about the cord being too short. Go buy a good, grounded extension cord for heaven's sake.
This may be too long, but it is as honest and detailed as I can make it and I hope it helps to make this really great machine better and keep it on the market.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ELKunkel Purchased less than a year ago and complete loss of suction
We purchased this vacuum less than a year ago and have used it a couple of times, no more than 6 (we have an older Bissell this vacuum is supposed to replace) and it's completely lost suction. We've checked the hoses, the belts, and emptied the cup (of nothing) and it still doesn't work. It's rather disappointing that we got this product and now it won't work. When it worked we loved it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by draco Broke within 2 weeks
I bought a Bissell 1816 vacuum about 2.5 months ago. It worked fine for about 2 weeks. Then, one day, I saw smoke coming out from the bottom end. I took it to the local service center recommended by Bissell. The service rep. found that the drive belt had snapped and the agitator was melted. He said Bissell would replace the vacuum and filled out the paperwork. I got a call from him later that day saying that Bissell had started processing my claim.
It's been 2 months since then. I am yet to receive the new vacuum and the local service center tells me that there is nothing they can do apart from waiting for Bissell to respond.
In short, it's terrible customer service.

This vacuum was easy to assemble and is light weight even when full. Super easy to empty container without getting hands dirty. Semi-quiet and picks up dog hair better than any other vacuum I have owned. Great vacuum for the price! Would recommend to all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesmoses This vacuum has made my life wonderful
As one who hates vacuuming and who has tried all other brands on the market, has falling in love with the One-Pass. It has wonderful features that included everything I needed to keep my apartment fresh and dirt free. The suction it provides is steady and powerful. It might look like a heavy machine but it moves with ease and directional ability that I had yet to experience. If you were like me and disliked vacuuming, this is the product that will change your mind. Really!

Rated 4 out of 5 by JustJess AH MAZING!
I love my new vacuum. You forget how appreciated a good machine is until you have to deal with a bad one for a while. My last vacuum was a monster. It was heavy, clunky and would tear up my floor every time I used the attachments. This is so lightweight, and practically propels itself forward. I used it right away and even after I had already vacuumed with the old beast, this one was able to pick up TONS more debris. AND it came a full week before expected with FREE shipping! I am only giving this product a 4 star instead of 5 because after being traumatized by the other vacuum tearing up my floor while the attachments were in use, I do wish the brush shut off while the attachments are being used. (I think there are other models with this capability) but so far, so good. I have had another Bissell in the past and it didn't tear up the floor so I am hoping this one is the same in that respect. Overall FANTASTIC buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sandy1040 bagless vacuums
While it is nice not to have to buy bags, I am extremely disappointed when how filthy you get when it comes time to clean the filters etc. The very fine dust gets all over you, your clothes, your body, and your lungs. I haven't had this machine too long, and all of a sudden the motor is much louder. I guess that means that you have to clean everything every time you use it. I would rather just have a bag you throw away and be done with it. I am a huge fan of the Bissell Rug Cleaner, as it does an awesome job!

Rated 1 out of 5 by LIZ NOT A GOOD BUY!!!
This particular model was a total disappointment . I had a Bissell several years ago and it worked great for over 2 years. I bought an expensive vacuum after and it did a fabulous job for about the same time than the Bissell- therefore last month I decided when I saw the price to purchase this vacuum. BIG mistake, I used it 1 time it had great suction and when I finished the 2 rooms tried to open the canister to empty it out- IT WOULD NOT OPEN. Read the instructions thinking there may be a trick..I was doing everything right to no avail. My husband tried, my neighbor tried-It was a community effort. Nothing worked. Returning it tomorrow and I HOPE I get no grief from Target. VERY DISSAPOINTED

Rated 4 out of 5 by TMelching23 Very Good
I got this as a gift for my birthday. I immediately used it. I love it. I sucks up dirt and cat litter very well. I used the Turbobrush on my furniture and it worked extremely well. I have a cat that sheds and this really picks it up well. Very easy to empty as well. My main complaint is that the part that holds the extenders doesn't really work. They immediately fell out of the part. Overall I loved it. Granted I have only used it once. LOL

Does better than my last vacuum on picking up dirt and. the carpet looks cleaner. I do like how the dirt cup releases and all the dirt falls out of the vacuum. Very easy to push. I love the turbo brush on furniture and area rugs.

Vacuum pulls dirt from deep down. Carpet has a fresh lift pile to the carpet after vacuuming. Great one pass for this look.
A little noisy but not overbearing. Other great features overrides the noise.
Love the onboard tools and the extra long cord. One plug covers the average size room. Lightweight which was very important.
Excellent machine for the price paid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LGreene Nice Vacuum
I would have given this five stars but the turbo brush hand tool only worked for about 20 minutes and now I can't use it anymore. I do plan to call and take advantage of the warranty - hopefully they will replace it with no problems.
Otherwise, the vacuum is great! I love that the dirt tank empties from the bottom - it prevents the pet hair (a big problem in my house) from flying out of the dirt tank before it makes it to the trashcan. Suction is great; the hose has good suction as well.
One thing I would suggest, is to give the user the ability to use the two extension wands separately. The regular, cylinder shaped wand has the slanted crevice tool inside of it and dirt and hair get stuck on that - then when I take the round extension off, the dirt and hair falls right back onto the carpet or its stuck to the outside of the slanted crevice tool. It's kind of gross, so that might need to be re-thought.

My husband bought this vacuum about month and it worked great the first time I used it! Picked up so much and my carpets looked brand new. My husband insist on only using Bissell product because his mom she only used Bissell vacuums
and he swears by them and how great these vacuums are.
