What should I do? Answer: First, see if the dirt container is full. If it is, empty it. Check that the filter isn’t missing and is installed correctly in the dirt cup. Also, check that the filter is clean. You can rinse it with warm water and mild detergent if simply tapping it against a garbage can doesn’t do the trick. Allow the filter to dry completely before reinstalling. If the filter is missing, damaged, or worn out, you can replace it by clicking here:http://www.bissell.com/replacement-filters-2-pack-for-stick-and-hand-vacuums-52h6?productid=94V5 Is the dirt container latched securely?
