Why does my circuit breaker shut down every time I turn my machine on?

Answer:
  • Check the filters to make sure they are clean.
  • Check the Pre and Post-Motor filters for debris. Dirty filters can restrict airflow. The pre-motor foam filter is square and located in a pull out tray underneath the dirt cup. The foam filter may be hand washed in cold water with mild detergent. Reinstall the filter when it is completely dry. The Multi-Layer Post Motor Filter is rectangular and located on the side of the machine.
    Note: The white Multi-Layer Post Motor Filter is not washable.
  • Check the amp limit of circuit breakers.

If you are using a 12 amp machine, and the circuit breakers are 10 amps this would trip the breakers. If you need further assistance, please call Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., or Saturday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., ET.
