Rated 1 out of 5 by shuck.... My sister in law bought one for me and I am surprised! I have lost a wheel and suction too. I had another vacuum for two years and it suddenly died on me so I figured it wast time to get another one but this one just crapped out on me after a few months. Problem is that she got it for me online so I have no idea what to.do. June 25, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This is a really good little machine There are many things to like about this vacuum, however I do have a few suggestions. The telescoping extension wand is a GREAT feature. But the hose could stand to be about 8" or 10" inches longer to reach tall cabinets for dusting. The suction is very good. I do wish the wheels were a little more "friendly" to move around while working. It is better than some, though. Overall I like this vacuum and hope it will last as long as the workmanship implies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by so good we are buying a second one daughter moved to her own new place. told her I would go buy a vacuum like mine and much to my disappointment I could not get one immediately on the spot as they are not in the store I purchased mine previously. We have pets and hardwood floors and rugs. I haven't had any problems with replacing any parts just yet and have had it for about a year now. This vacuum is tough! It picks up all the pet hair etc. and we can pull it through the house and get in tough to reach spots. Love the retractable cord. I have tried a lot of vacuums in the past and this one does have so much power and works so well, I am afraid to try any other model or brand. I will be ordering the second one for my daughter online. In the meantime, we are sharing mine until her order arrives. April 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by poor suction My girlfriend bought this unit a few months ago and used it a few times and complained everytime how it didnt work, i talked to her and said i would try it thinking she was doing something wrong, nope there was no suction, i tried adjusting the suction still nothing, she ended up using my vacuum (name withheld). She purchased her cleaner to clean her carpets now she has to purchase another cleaner, or continue to use mine. I hate to give a bad review but this one is warranted. April 12, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Should if not used for heavy dirt in carpets. this works great for light picking up of dust,crumbs, short fiber carpets and bare floors, etc,,,but if you use on dirty carpet, it clogs with hair easy, and fine dirt really sets off and clogs all filters..not worth the trip and cost for filters. 4 of them..even after cleaning the washables is disgusting,, every time I use canister seeps fine dust particles around seams, I see dust come out the back like an exhaust often. Will not buy another one. March 5, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This product is very loud with a high pitched sound when running It's suction is okay but the noise is awful. It is like running an old vacuum that has lost it's ability to run! This machine picked up dirt but ran with such a high-pitched sound it hurt my ears. It also did not pick up dirt well on thick carpets. February 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME LITTLE HELPER FOR A BUSY MOM Do I need to say? I have kids. and I have mess in my house. I have tried all those premium-elite-king- cyclone-hurricane or what not standard bagged vacuums before! They are OK but heavy, messy, smelly ( due to bag storing all the dirt all day long in your own house), did I mentioned bulky? And you have to haul the whole thing back and fort. Well for my busy life and kitchen I need a quick picker upper- but not hand held small vacs -rather this versatile and strong canister. I clean my floors, if the dirt cup full, I take it off, shake it to trash, rinse it every once in a while. (the whole attachments, dirt cup, filters, hose everything can be washed and sterilized with a bit of bleach and ready brand new clean whenever you need it.) NEVER PAY for another bag again. It never failed me, I have banged, dropped, dragged this canister around for so long and NOTHING HAPPENS TO THIS THING. Ok. well until l I forgot my dirt cup and filters next to my heater to dry them after washing it off. I forgot them next to my electric heater and unfortunately the plastic dirt cup melt at one side ( MY fault). Rather than running to store and get a new vac NO sir, I just ordered the replacement part for my beloved little helper. Will continue using this for another 3 years or so with the new parts. I have to add as well as carpets this one is MOST PERFECT for BARE FLOORS, I use it to vacuum my extra large giant bare floors in kitchen, living room and entrance. Since I vacuum those places very frequently I don't need to hassle with bag changing and the smell and inefficient bare floor function of regular bagged vacuums. Have you tried to vacuum a handful of sand of the floor with those? Sucks. it spits it right back to your face. But my Bissell canister doesn't leave a speck behind! Yes I am a regular real mom not paid survey taker. I love this vacuum. Thank you Bissell for making my life EASSSSY. January 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by review I would not recommend this vacuum unless you don't mind having to replace filters. It is bag free, however it is pricey to replace the filter when the dirt cup fills. Total number of filters are 2 paper filters and 2 washable filters. December 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by great Vacuum but defective dirt canister I bought this to replace an upright, works great and a lot of suction power. The only problem with this is that the dirt canister, does not line up with the lid in the rear and this lets dirt/dust to get by and clog up the motor filer. theirs no way to correct this except for getting entire new dirt canister that lines up properly. Now to find proof of purchase. I would of rated it excellent if the plastic was more durable feeling. December 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great! Really nice vacuum! Only problem is that it's not light-weight at all, pretty heavy and clunky but still compact size. September 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worth The Money Delivery was prompt, easy to assemble and has convenient features on the vacuum that make the product easier to use. At first I couldn't tell it was actually picking up anything because it was so quiet but I think I am just used to loud, clunky vacuums that do not clean as well as the Bissell OptiClean. Also, you just can't beat the Bissell promotions and discounts! Before purchasing an item, pricing and current deals are the most important and with this vacuum I saved $20 and free shipping! Loved it! September 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this item and it's features I have had been using upright vacuum's and they like a lot of power ,fall apart within in a year or less Bissell canister is a lot better and very easy to use,and I love were they have there extra cleaning tool's August 7, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bissel canister disappointment Very disappointed with this product. The lid lock broke twice. I purchased mine at Walmart. They took the first one back and gave me a new one. Both canister lids broke. I live on a fixed income so I used duc tape to hold the lid down during vacuuming. I have the second canister for 6 months and now the cord which connects the power to carpet tool has come loose. This vacuum is not sturdy. The parts are weak. July 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by This product has great features. I just purchased your vacuum only a few weeks ago & am very satisfied with it. I am on oxygen 24/7 & I only have 1 issue with this vacuum. I wish it had small wheels on the carpet fixture so it would be easier to push & pull across the carpet. I get out of breath by the time I'm only 1/2 finished with my rug & carpet. I like the way I can adjust the suction. Yes, small wheels on the carpet fixture! That's all I need. Thank you, Rita S. March 7, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointed I wanted a vacuum that would pick up animal hair on bare floors and it does a fine job. After a few uses it would take about three tries to get it to turn on and then sometimes it wouldn't turn off. Obviously, the switch is bad. I don't expect anything to last for ever but it would have been nice to get a couple of years out of this vacuum before having this kind of problem. February 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! The size of this vacuum is great for me...light and small enough to move about with ease. I like the adjustable suction. It is great to pick up random cat litter and hair. It moves under beds and low furniture easily. I like the self winding cord with the colored warning marks and I like the clear cannister so I can see easily when it needs emptying. The tools stay confined to their compartment instead of falling off all the time like our previous small vacuum. December 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great so far I've only used it once thus far....I'm lazy....but it has met with all my expectations. I particularly like the suction controll which enables me to vacuum the drapes without the machine swallowing them. September 30, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by bissell canister vacume opticlean This is the worst vacume I have ever, ever used. Especially if you have a pet. You have to empty it alot to vacume...and I have wood floors!! You have to turn it on and off from the bottom of the canister, which is very inconvient , and I have a small house!! The suction is very poor, and you have to push down to vacume very hard. It has to be in a certain position on the main floor tool, which has to be totally flat. I would't recommend this vacume tjo my worst enemy!!!!!!!! Also very hard to get under furniture, because of the main floor tool. September 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderking Great features and works well for what I wanted it to do. September 25, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by poor for the price I do not like the vacuum at all. It is almost one year we use it and every time we clean carpet we almost collect leftovers hair and all by hand. it does not remove stain. does a fair good job in collecting some of the dirt but does not clean thoroughly. the extra parts, brushes especially do not stay in place and come loose. I do not know if I want to change the filter or throw it in the garbage and try to purchase a new vacuum. March 24, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brush is bad. i particularly like the variable speed feature as it is great for dusting things without sucking up the item! However, the brush is miserable.... It is sparsely bristled and does not stay attached to the hose. It keeps falling off, too. It would be good to redesign this and send the modification to current owners! February 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Has excellent features Purchased to vac hard surface floors. I use the carpet setting to vac hard surfaces and it does a great job. The hard surface setting extends a brush that pushes the dirt rather vaccuming it up. I only use it to vac vinyl and wood floors and am very happy with the results. I like the auto cord rewind feature and adjustable wand length. Is much more efficient than a broom or dust mop. I would reccommend this product to my friends. February 1, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Overall a nice vacuum for the price. We really like this vacuum except for the tools that come with it. The brush is way to stiff and doesn't suck up dirt very well. Mostly, scatters it around. Overall, we found it is best to just dust any furniture with a rag and furniture polish by hand. Much faster and productive. Vacuum picks up dirt and debris well on carpets and floors. January 31, 2012
