Having problems with your Bissell 3920 Bagless Upright Vacuum ?

Bissell 3920 no suction and not picking up. The entire unit has been cleaned The unit is less than six months old.

Hi Lula, I will try to help you. I don't know if the blower/suction motor is turning on or not, but if it's not, either a switch, wiring, or the motor is probably bad. It could also be a broken shaft to the motor, if the machine's turning on but not having any suction. My suggestion is to take it to a Vacuum Repair Shop and ask them for an estimate for repair. They usually know what parts break on what machines, and can probably let you know what's going on. Get a couple of opinions if you don't think they know what they're talking about, or if you just don't feel right about their answer. Most experienced people in the business will know, pretty much, what the problem is, and a low and high end price of repair. Make sure you get the "high-end" estimate, since, occasionally, the price of repair will exceed the cost of new replacement. Good luck, and hope this helps!
The tubes clog especially if you have pets. I would try flushing the tubes out or if you have an air compressor, fire it up. We have been through a hald dozen of them over the years and they all have problems. Or have them replace it, it's just not worth you making yourself crazy over, bad design flaws.

My DC17 is only a few months old, but I've already had to clean the filter. Since I reassembled everything, I'm finding chunks of carpet fiber and dog fur on top of the filter inside the filter container. Iam getting slightly less suction from the floor assembly as well. I've checked the hoses, brush, and brushed out the inside of the plastic container, but hasn't helped. Ideas??

Hoover Windtunnel T-Series UH20700 9 mos old. Keeps clogging in hose just above the beater brush assembly. I think it clogs because the suction is too weak to pull much through. Primary filter is clean and HEPA filter is replaced. Even when everything is unclogged, suction is weak compared to another unit (same model) that a friend has. Any ideas?

I had the same problem. Took it in and the repair shop they said it was the switch. It was an $18 switch and $30 labor.

I know this sounds like a dumb problem to have for a vacuum but our 6 year old dyson has so much suction you can't move it across the floor. It only recently started doing this and I haven't done anything to it such as clean the filters in over 6 months. Any help would be appreciated

Poor suction We bought a model home about 11 years ago and it had the Cental M&S Cyclonic Cleaning system. The suction has steadily been weakening. Now it is almost non-existant. I clean the filter bag in the main unit, but how clean does it need to be. Could there be a clog in the wall lines. If yes, how does one unclogg them. Thank you. I liked the system and would hate to just give up on it. Jean

My Eureka/The Boss doesn't seem to have the suction power it had. However, when I place my hand under the hose, it has good suction, then when I try to pull in a small particle, it doesn't, unless I have the hose nozzle completely over the particle. The vac is 10 yrs. old. I cleaned everything. Someone said the belt. Would the belt matter if the hose doesn't **** well? It is just old and worn out? It did shut off recently do to overheating. Help. Thanks. Lorraine

No suction I just replaced the bag, and normally after this I have a lot of suction. Now that I have changed the bag I have less suction that I had before. Not even enough to picj up dog hair. I snaked he hose and checked all of the connections. It seems to have an air leak but no amount of tape will fix this. I cleaned the filer as well with warm water and dried it and re installed but still absolutely no suction. I am ready to throw it out! Any suggestions would be appreciated

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.

Low suction I have a Hoover central vacuum system. I've reset the fuse box, checked the fuses, all of the lines are clear and there are no holes for escaped air to travel out. The filter has been cleaned as well. The vac works well with high suction when hooked directly to the unit, however when using any of the indoor connections there is extremely low suction. The machine still turns on so I do not believe it is an electronic issue. I have troubleshooted the issue as best I could and would
