Bissell bagless vacuum problem Please Help

Posted on 4/22/11 at 4:52 PM By coffee wilson | 4 Replies

Hi.  I am new here, and have been using the Bissell Power Track Cyclonic (stands upright)  for a few years and it's the extra large capacity (bagless with extra wide path).  It's kind of noisy, but over the last few weeks it's been very loud.  The filters are cleaned and the floor brush is too, often.  However, there was a time when it was used to get up so much at once, and I don't know what is wrong because after cleaning it's filters, I don't see a problem. 

It's the floor part that won't work, and the attatchment does work and picks up fine (but you can't always use it, or they say it could tear up your vacuum).  However, at one point I did use it a bit.  But, I'm not sure if that's what's the matter or not.  All I can think of is that it got overloaded at some point--due to dust, and an awful lot of pet hair.  Or, could it just be time to get rid of it?  It was used before here, and that was 3 years ago.  Why does the hose work fine, but the floor part won't?  Do I need to get inside it?  How do I do that? 

Please help, because I can't afford a new one.

Bissell belts and accessories are reasonably priced on the Bissell website and I have been real pleased with the quality.  WalMart does carry Bissell parts and so does Sears.  If you go that route, check online to be sure they have your belt size in stock.

My Bissell did the same thing and works fine now after replacing the belt. You can get  2pack at Walmart for around $7.

It sounds like you may have a clogged hose.  There is a hose that goes from the bottom of the brush roll to the hose.  I would first call Bissell at 1-800-237-7691 option 3 and they can trouble shoot over the phone.

I would not try to repair this item on your own.  Take it to a sewing machine vaccuum repair service or send it back to bissell for repair.  If the repair will cost more than a new vaccuum, I would suggest getting a new vaccuum.  You should be able to get an estimate for repair before you have them do the actual work.
