Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 76 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by mixed reviews I just purchased mine a day or two ago. It cleaned carpets my Hoover did not. I understand that you have to keep filters clean to get the best life out of a vacuum but the Hoover never did with a clean filter what this Bissell has done. So I am hoping that with the other mixed reviews out there that if I take good care of the filtering system it will last because I do love the suction power. Only recommendation on modifications for Bissell to make is, yes a longer stretch hose bc no matter how close to you it is it still is difficult; two, put a handle on the hose for better gripping and use with tools; last, a hook latching system with screws to hold the handle part on from the back and not the top as I see where over time pulling on that area can strip the holes as there is no additional locking method. Hoping mine lasts longer than those of others on here. January 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Texture of my carpet Looks Like New! This Bissell PowerGroom Helix was a birthday present to myself. Little did I know that I would be giving myself new carpets too! Well, they looked just like new after vacuuming . I live in a nice apartment but my carpets weren't new when I moved in. Fair condition and in the heavy traffic areas the carpets where matted down a little. Since I moved into my apartment I have owned a Dirt Devil and a Eureka vacuum that did ok but not great. I purchased a Kirby Whole House Elite. I was very encouraged as it did a wonderful job on my carpets but unfortunately it had a defect so I returned it and bought this Bissell. Wow to my Amazement this Bissell Powergroom Helix lived up to its name. Its powerful suction brought out dirt out of my carpet like no tomorrow. I had to empty the canister a few times. It practically restored my carpets texture to Like New. My carpets look well groomed now. I'm really enjoying walking barefoot on my carpet. I love the cleaning tools it comes with and have tried them all. The feature that sold me the most though is the Automatic Cord Rewind. With my other vacuums I have owned in the past I always hated having to struggle with winding up the cord. I love this Bissell. All I have to do is press the button down with my foot and the cord easily and quickly rewinds itself back into the vacuum. Bissell has spoiled me. From now on any other vacuum I own will have to have this feature or its not going home with me. The vacuum is sturdy, well built, and for the price in my opinion nothing can top it. Thank all of you hard working people at Bissell. Cant wait to try more Bissell products in the future! October 16, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This vacuum doesn't last long This vacuum starts off good, but doesn't last more than a year. I have bought it twice. September 30, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Broke just over a year Later I really liked this vacuum but I bought it Christmas 2013 and Now June 2014 it won't turn on at all I liked the suction of the vacuum but everyone is right about the hose it is too stiff and everytime you use it the vacuum falls over backwards and now my Registration is over and I'm out a vacuum :( June 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by specs say 12 amp infro. plate says 10 amp Purchased at wal mart thought vac was 12 amp by specs at Bissell Web site. My model is 98n41 and on the infro plate on the vac it has 10 amp. What's the deal? Other than that very good vac. May 26, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Will be returning This vacuum has great suction, but the design is poor. The hose is too stiff, doesn't stretch much, so when using, the vacuum falls over backwards frequently. I also find the cord to be too short and impractical. Lastly, I don't care for the Febreeze filter. I don't find the scent pleasant and it's too strong for my taste. I will be returning this vacuum. May 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by just bought this today I had to replace a bagged vacuum because I can no longer find bags. I cannot believe how bad my last one was. I vacuumed the area rug in my living room and could not believe the dog hair that was left after using the old. I didn't understand the instructions for the febreeze filter. Was I suppose to leave the charcoal filter in there because it wouldn't close with it. This vacuum will be used on multi surfaces and in cars. April 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good vacuum Love the vacuums suction and ease of use.. but I have a problem with mine.. my cord is stuck on rewind mode.. it wont stop winding back into the machine.. how can I fix it? March 18, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Detached Handle It sucks dirt up well, co complaints there. I am satisfied with the suction. I am very displeased with how cheap the machine is made. My handle is almost completely broken off. March 10, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by AMAZING VACUUM EXCEPT..... Loved the idea of a retractable cord, so I bought this vacuum, and couldn't wait to use it. Amazing suction even with the attachments. The pet attachment was the best I've ever used. After emptying the canister, the plastic cracked all the way up when being reinserted. It wasn't forced, so I don't know why it would have cracked. I used duct tape on the crack, but it still spewed dust when it was switched on. I've dealt with this for 2 months and I'm going to buy a new one today. I had a Dyson prior to the Bissell and the Bissell runs circles around the Dyson. I will give 5 stars if this one doesn't break right away. March 3, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Junk Very poor design on the handle where it attaches to the machine. Mine broke loose the third time I used it. Has good suction and love the automatic cord rewind, but would not buy another one. December 21, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Vacuum I love the vacuum, the only problem I find is the belt breaks easily. I have dogs and kids and there is always something under a bed or sofa.. If I push the vacuum under it sucks it up so fast it breaks the belt. Other than that the vacuum is great. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by My favorite thing I have had very expensive sweepers in the past, but since I have hardwood now, and carpet only in the living room, family is grown, and have no animals, I thought I would try a lightweight cleaner the last time. I really LOVE the smell, the lightness, and most of all, the amazing pick up. I bought it last year, Unfortunately, while decorating for X-mas last week, I picked up something that stopped the beaters, and burned the belt. My daughter gave me a beautiful dyson, while I took my Bissell for repair. Sorry to report that it could not be fixed. After thinking how great the dyson was going to be, I used it. I do not like it nearly as much as my Bissell. I am going to buy a new one immediately. If I have to buy one a year, it is worth it. December 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Good Vaccum I have always owned a Bissell vacuum , but last Christmas I bought a different brand.. a Eureka WhirlWind® Rewind 4242A, .. that lasted almost a year from last Christmas to this Christmas. ,, I went back to Bissell.. ! The only thing I don't like about my new Bissell vacuum is the cheaply made rewind mechanism.. I have only had it a month and the cord got stuck in there around the plastic piece that winds it up.. I fixed it myself. Other then that its okay.. nice and light.. and picks up really well... will see how long this last..=) I am tough on vacuums.. they have to be good because I have 4 grandchildren and 6 dogs that run in and out playing.. so my vacuum gets a work out every single day.. sometimes twice a day.. December 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Love it Really like the Helix Vacuum. Only down fall is it is loud and could use another extension "tube". I have a problem with the vacuum fall over when using the extensions. It has great suction and filters are easy to clean. October 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by work better than expected works great, made four passes on carpet & emptied after each & was still pulling mess out of carpet. wow! very strong suction, great vacuum! October 22, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by disappointing I purchased this vacuum in May of 2013. It does a super job of cleaning. The suction is great and it grooms the carpets and makes them look like new, as well as being easy to use. However, the disappointing thing is how inconvenient and messy it is to take it apart and clean the filters. It is a major, messy job. The fine dust spills out onto the vacuum and the floor. So I have decided to get rid of it because it is too much of a hassle for me. October 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this vacuum! I have been very pleased with this vacuum. I only have one problem. I am needing to replace the hose wand base and cannot find it anywhere. Is there a replacement part for this? October 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product We replaced our hardwood floors with carpet and had to purchase a vacuum. We have several pets and wanted a good vacuum at a reasonable price. I love this vacuum. It picks up dog hair that I do not see. It is very easy to use. I have used it daily since we purchased it and have not had any issues. The canister empties easy. The automatic cord rewind is a great feature. October 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Like the Vacuum, Not Crazy About the FeBreze Filter I just bought this vacuum 9/23/13 and tested it out on both the carpet and the tile floor as well as vacuuming a body pillow. Everything works fine, but I have to say the FeBreze filter is too strong of an odor. I have a small house and frankly, that filter gives me a headache. To remedy the problem, I've wrapped 2 plastic bags around the vacuum covering the FeBreze filter to cut back on the smell while in my storage closet. Is there an odorless filter I can purchase that does the same job as the smelly one? Also, in old school days when I used a Kirby, I would put a newpaper down under the vacuum to empty the dirt and contents from the cloth bag rather than on the raw floor. The clean up might be somewhat minimized doing this, or don't empty the vacuum in the house reintroducing dust again, just take the vacuum outside to your lawn or garden and work on emptying it there....just a thought... September 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by good vacuum at great price!!! vacuum was worth the money at local retailer. this is the second Bissell vacuum I buy and can not complain. My first vacuum was given to a friend when I moved out of state. He still has it after two years and it still works good!!!! September 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME!!! Great Vacuum highly recommend. never thought i had that much dirt in my carpet. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it! picks up so much dirt out of the floor, and love the smell it puts off when vaccuming. September 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy A great replacement for an old Hover. Collects dust I never thought I had. September 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Vacuum This is probably the 4th vacuum I have had in 14 years. It does work well but is a little difficult to push on carpet, even with the wheel adjustment all the way up, and it is so light that when I use the hose attachment the vacuum tends to fall backward and hits me in the leg, ouch!!!! Other than that, it does work well. September 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great vacuum for the money Had this vacuum since 12/31/12. Never had a problem until the belt broke. This will sound funny, but it sucks very well! For the price, it cannot be beat. Will buy another one just like it when this one goes down for good. September 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Expectations I did not intentionally buy this vacuum. I instead meant to buy the PowerGroom Vacuum 92L31 that was on display at my local Walmart, but when I opened the box this is what I had got. So I got online, read reviews & decided to keep it... and I'm so glad I did!! The reviews for the other model were not so great, so maybe this is one is replacing it? I immediately vacuumed to test it out & was so impressed! I had just vacuumed a couple of days ago & still had to dump the canister after each room! I haven't tried it on tile, but it works great on hard wood! Even if it didn't, I was ok with that... in the past I'll sweep it to the doorway with a broom & use the hose to get the dirt pile. I also use my vacuum a lot for dusting, and would love to find more options for accessories! A softer, or longer haired brush would be great! I noticed a lot of reviewers had trouble with filters clogging & no headlight. To keep the filters lasting longer, we use an air compressor to clean out after every other use or so (about once a week). And as far as a headlight goes... why? I've never had a use for the headlight on vacuums, so I'm not sure why it should be a deal breaker to people. I love this vacuum & it definitely fits my needs! August 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good features. Works well. I just do not like the sponge-like filter...it is a hassle to clean. August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This vacuum is "AWESOME"! After carefully checking out all vacuums on display at store, I found that this vacuum had great features and was not very heavy at all! And the price was great as well! My wife and I have been using this vacuum for about 3 weeks now, and we have 2 dogs and a son. It is VERY powerful, light and easy to use and cleans the carpet and hardwood floors very well. It really can pick up the dirt and ALL the dog hairs very well! My wife loves it as well, and it is very easy to clean the filters and to empty the dirt!! My wife says I made a "GREAT" choice!! And she loves the automatic cord rewind with a touch of a button! I would highly recomend this product to anyone!! Thank you for an "AWESOME" vacuum!!.......P.S. The only thing I was wondering, why it doesn't have a light on the powerhead? A light on it would be nice, but we can do without it! It's still an "AWESOME" vacuum!! I noticed that alot of all the other brands didn't have a light as well? Just wondering why they are all making them mostly without lights on them anymore??? August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome This is the best vacuum I've ever had it makes my floors look cleaner... my house smells fresher. The suction is terrfic not a lot of back and forth motion and it lays flat so i dont have to move furniture yaaay. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and family July 28, 2013
