I doubt i'm covered under a warranty, but I did return my first 53Y8 Lift Off to Target, got another one but was told I couldn't return it twice, and it's failing again.
the part were the body rotates is NOT sturdy enough to use as a "stick vac" and gets weaker every use. I only use it about once every 2 weeks, and it's already on its last leg.
Love the Bissell brand, and the rest of the 53Y8 is easy enough to use, but this model is just poorly engineered to do what it says it should be used for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by decibeldiva Love it
My 82 year old Mom LOVED her Christmas present! Says she can't wait to use it. She's excited that she can clean under her beds without stooping over! I'm going to buy myself one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by picky chef New Hardwood floors
I am in the process of putting in hardwood floors and looking for an easy way to keep them clean, I purchased this as a gift for my girlfriend, and after using it my self I was impressed how well it did, I had also put in area rugs in the rooms that are completed and this machine had no problem with that as well and the handle feature is great, especially under the air conditioner handler, easy to empty and maneuver, I highly recommend this product., you might not think that the run time is sufficient, but it is more than long enough to get the job done, once a month I might pull out the heavy duty machine. So far every piece of equipment I have purchased has been great, and I still use today, I might recommend that you purchase a couple extra filters to have on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patsy Second Purchase of This Vac
I have just purchased my second one. We love the convenience and the light weight so might as well strategically place them in our big enough home. The price is right too.
Always powerful enough for tiles and rugs and have never had a charging problem. Company is great and we even purchased extra filters so I can wash them and replace immediately.
Love the removable hand held vac aspect as needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Turtle9424 Great little vacuum
This vacuum is great for stairs and small jobs you don't need a full size vacuum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Froggy Battery charger
I love this vacuum. This the third one I have bought. But for some reason this one will not charge up with the charger you gave me. I waited until the vacuum is completely dead. I finally am trying the charger from the last one I bought. I will see.
This have bought many Bissell products. This the first problem I have had.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katie88 Too Bad
I got this last year at Christmas time. It was used according to directions 2-3 times a week at the most. The battery charge only lasts 1 minute or so now. Too bad the battery is not replaceable. When it worked I really liked it. Don't know that I would invest again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayJay Great for folks with bad back
I've dreaded sweeping until I got my Bissel lift off. The bending handle makes it easy to get under things. I mostly have hardwood floors but a few throw rugs. The old round vac used to suck up the rugs and this beauty goes from floor to rug no problem. In also have stairs that were very hard on my back but with this great machine I can remove the hand held get under the riser and the spin head is great on the steps. I would recommend this to anyone. Great little vacuum
