Rated 4 out of 5 by SeanFitz Great little vacuum
For the price, this is a great little vacuum. No, it is not a $600 "animal" vacuum. But it works great for picking up dirt, dust, and animal hair. Suction is VERY good for the size of motor and rotor. If there is a lack of suction, people should check the bottom filter and/or see if the hose is plugged. As far as the handle and other complaints, if you get a defective unit, send it back. Overall, we are pleased enough with this vacuum that we purchased two more, one for Mom and one for our second floor.
Well worth the price. Reviewed:power force compact vacuum 23T7V

Rated 2 out of 5 by College kid You get what you pay for
After reading countless reviews I decided to purchase this vacuum. I liked the bag less feature and its size. Overall assembly was also easy. Now when it comes to its main purpose this product works extremely well on tile. As for carpet that's a different story. Pushing and pulling it on rugs and carpets of different sizes was like pulling someone through quicksand! Effortlessly glides doesn't apply with the vacuum hits carpet. No height adjustment option available but I guess it's understandable at the price. I wouldn't purchase again if given a redo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindy007 Great little vacuum!
We are in the process of building a new house and needed a small vacuum to fit into a skinny closet. We will have area rugs.
This vacuum is perfect for our needs. In our home now we use it for the family room area rugs and kitchen area rugs and it does a great job. Thanks!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jvciani Putting filter back on after emptying is sometimes difficult
The vacuum cleaner basically cleans good, and I like the bagless filter. The only problem I have is putting the filter back on after emptying it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mom24 Overall, it's a good vacuum for the $
But, it STINKS!! Everything is cleaned, emptied, attached properly. I've read your tips...why does it smell so bad when we turn it on? Ours is only used on hard floors for light pickup, BTW.
Otherwise, good suction, easy emptying/cleaning for a lightweight, inexpensive vacuum!

I have had my machine for almost a year, and it still works Great. For good performance you must clean on a regular..........remember it is smaller then most so you need to keep up on maintenance. Just wish the attachments were longer, or do they have any for purchase?

Rated 5 out of 5 by mgenereux I am a new owner and really like it
I recently purchased the product and put it through a workout doing 4 rooms in one shot. It worked great and handled both rug and hard floors. Best news is I didn't break it in 2 hours like I did my new shop vac. If I don't break it, it is probably well made. My wife likes the light weight making it easier to manuver. She noted a longer hose would be helpful to reach higher areas along curtains etc. Is one available to attach as an add on or extension?

I think it's Great. Now you can see the rubbish and don't need a bag, it doesn't get better than that. Keep up the good work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fnr786 separates easily
Whenever I lift vacuum by its long handle (which is how you are supposed to lift vacuum) the handle comes out. I find this so frustrating. I have to lift vacuum by grabbing it by its canister. I have had the vacuum over 6 months and the belt broke recently. I have also noticed suction not as good as it was in the beginning and I do clean the filters every time I use the vacuum. I would not recommend vacuum.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Miss Honest WASTSE OF MONEY
I purchased this vacuum, cause I needed a new one and it was convenient. This vacuum only worked for a month before I had to replace the belt twice. Then I had to replace the parts on the vacuum. I was very upset and disgusted with the POOR QUALITY of this vacuum. I only had for a month before it began to break down. Getting the parts replaced and everything else regarding this vacuum was a hassle. So this is the 3rd vacuum and I WILL NOT BE PURCHASING ANY OTHER BISSELL PRODUCTS EVER AGAIN. I just purchased a Eureka vac.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Robin99 Very disappointed. Did not clean very well.
I have always bought Bisell vacuums in the past so I didn't hesitate to buy model # 23t7v. It let me down since it did not clean very well. It kept blowing dust everywhere. I could not get it to seal properly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kim This product is a waste of money.
Bought this vacuum for our daughter for her college apartment in September, by October it wasn't working. It was used only 3 - 4 times. It has great suction, picks up better than any vacuum I've ever seen. When it works. We knew we weren't getting a high quality vacuum but we thought it would at least last out the school year.

I am very pleased with my Bissell, because it is ideal for my home. It cleans my home with little effort. I love the cord being 30 feet long, it lets me do more than spending time unplugging and plugging into another plug. I do not have to worry about bags, since it is Bagless. I enjoy using my Bissell. .

Purchased the product on-line through major retailor. Never had power out of the box. Bissell has been no help. Would not recommend this or any other product of Bissell based on their poor customer service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by justme07 Belt
I bought the vacuum about 4 months ago, I loved how it worked until the belt broke, I went to the store and bought replacement belts and they were too big. I then got online and bought from the company and the belt is so tight the brush won't spin at all. I am very disappointed that I spent money on a new vacuum just to have to spend more money to replace the belt just a few months later. Wish it would have worked out better but now I am half tempted just to buy a whole new vacuum and it won't be another Bissell unless I can get the right size belt that won't break or be too small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sunrise77 GREAT PRODUCTS
I have bought several vacuumes and parts and etc. from Bissell company and threw there distributors (Walmart) and etc. They make great products that go really good cleaning. There vacuumes have good suction when it comes to vacuuming up dog hair and dirt and etc. My dog sheds year round and this Power Force Vacuum really does a great job. Can't not ask for a better vacuum than this. This is my second one I have bought in the last 6 years. Thats a long time for a vacuum to last. They really last a long time as long as you clean them as the directions tell you. It saves money and cost of having to change out the filters and etc. on them.

I am very pleased with my PowerForce Compact Vacuum. It cleans very good, it's light to carry, and doesn't take up a lot of space to store. I would recommend this product to all my family and friends. Another thing that is great about this vacuum is that you don't need any bags and I really love this.

This is my second one I LOVED my original one & made the MISTAKE of lending it to someone who was to lazy to empty it & let all the hair from their long haired dog to accumulate in the motor. It took me awhile to find another one NEVER loaning again!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cary Outstanding Product for the $$$$
I purchased this vacuum because my canister vacuum broke and had to be sent out for repairs under warranty (not a Bissell) anyway I clean an office once a week and needed another vacuum while mine was been repaired 5 to 6 weeks I decided to give this a try, the purchase price was right, it does a good job. It works on my bare floors, and carpets, its light weight, canister is easy to clean, on board tools, only wish the power cord was longer, good suction. Thank you Bissell

Rated 3 out of 5 by ada99 Belt replacement
I bought this vacuum not long ago for the only area rug we have in the house. Worked great for a few times, then developed a burning smell. When we took it apart, we found the belt had snapped. Now I am having a terrible time finding the belt number to buy another and even bought Bissell replacement belts that still don't specify model numbers for the vacuum on the bag. Seems as though it should be a simple fix but I have tried the big box chains and the hardware stores but no one seems to be able to help match up the model number of the vacuum to the appropriate belt.
