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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mic Doesn't suck, that's the problem
Worst vacuumed I've ever encountered, it has no suction and is extremely loud. You'd think for all that noise it would do something! It works ok on carpets because it has a a super fast brush on the bottom, but on floor surfaces, all that happens is that those brushes just hurl stones at your feet and walls at hurricane force. Not good for non carpeted surfaces!!!

Great suction and very light weight! However, it is very loud, especially on hard wood floors. It almost sounds like it is sanding the floors down to be refinished!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MSantos Surprisingly Powerful Compact & Light
I was looking for a second lighter compact vacuum to keep on one floor so I wouldn't have to drag my 20 yr old 45 lb Hoover ($200 back in 1995# down stairs to the basement. This was on sale at WalMart for a great price #$35 w/ crevice tool/upholstery brush) so I thought "What the heck" and would not be out too much money if it didn't work out. I vacuumed my whole house in record time including hardwood floors, linoleum, wall to wall carpeting and an Oriental carpet. Surprising amount of dirt/dust removed, suction is great. (I am careful not to leave small items on the floor (ie LEGOS, coins) that are apt to block or ruin any size vacuum. Great product for a tiny price ! Improved design/product suggestions : 1. Extension wand 2. Longer electric cord 3. Longer suction hose. 4. Secure the hose at base with knob/groove set up. 5. Onboard tool storage away from hose. THANKS BISSELL ! :D

Overall this is a great little vacuum for the few time I have used it since purchasing it. It would be nice if it had at least one extension wand with it.
