Rated 1 out of 5 by TwoDogMom Not happy!
I loved my PowerForce vacuum for 6 weeks. That's how long I had it before the brush quit turning. I checked to see if the belt had broken, it had not. Thinking it may have stretched, I replaced it, but the brush still did not turn, then it broke. I have purchased Bissell products for two decades and they served me well until the last few years. The motor in my PetEraser vacuum had to be replaced after one year, the motor in the carpet shampooer died the second time I used it, now I am without a vacuum again. While both motors were covered by warranty, it was a great inconvenience being without a vacuum and getting stuck with a wet carpet. Dirt Devil, here I come!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jamz Belt mechanics are poor!
Purchased this vacuum less than 6 months ago and every couple of runs the belt literally pops off! I have to disassemble it and put it back on then it will run a couple of more times. It's horrible! The issue is that the pin the belt connects on is teeny tiny and it keeps working its way off. Plus, anytime I have to go into the vacuum, so much dirt falls out of it. It's disgusting. Would not reccomend this to anyone. #wishicouldtakeitback

cheap is the word thank goodness. The leaver that holds the handle upright always breaks. The hose on top of handle always falls off. There the hose end connects to the tank turns loose. The five floor levels do not work that great. They last about a good year than I buy another one. I usually buy the power force helix model 12b1

I bought this vacuum and thought it was great!! One of the best vacuums I've ever used. But now 6 months later, and constant servicing and cleaning it, I realize I got what I paid for. Very inexpensive, but it works like it! I've been a Bissell girl for a long time, but I think I'm going to have to try a different brand.

I have found this vacuum to be very efficient. Although I have not had it all that long. had some trouble attaching the hose part that goes into the vacuum, supposed to put it in and turn it so it would stay in place, had a very difficult time getting that working. Really good suction, don't know what will happen in the future, but so far so good.

I just bought and used this vacuum today. I had owned a Dyson for 7 years and it quit so I took a chance on the Power Force Helix. My oh my! This Vacuum has more suction and it even picked up cat litter without spitting it out the back. I couldn't believe how easy it was to use and the power this vacuum has. This is a great buy especially of you have pets. I was so happy to see all of the dirt in the canister after my first cleaning! This is my first Bissell product and I am in love!!!!

It is the worst vacuum I ever owned and I have had many. The wheels are plastic so they don't roll like a vacuum made with quality parts.. It picks up dirt just fine, but try cleaning out all the canister and filter parts and you could have vacuumed your house all over again. It is a mess. I do not have kids so there isn't much dirt to pick up but after I vacuum I have to take the whole vacuum outside so dirt doesn't fall all over the clean floor.
I wish I had been warned but that' s life. If you didn't buy this yet don't do it!

This vacuum has suited my 1-bedroom apartment fine. It has good suction, the filter is easy to clean, and the attachment has been great. Overall it's a great vacuum for a great price.
