Having problems with your Bissell Lift-Off(R) Revolution(R) Turbo Upright Vacuum ?

I have a bissell vacuum model 3760-2 and it smells terrible when it is in use (like wet pet hair). I have emptied and washed the main collection "tank" and unscrewed the filter and washed the flexible filter but it still smell horrible. Any suggestions?


Answers :

The filter if its dirty in gives bad smell.Also if it gets worn out or very old it gives bad smell.Many other users too have noticed this bad smell.Replacing the filter helped many other users too.\015\012The worst part being smell of the filter once it goes bad it stays bad and fills the room with a nasty rotten smell.\015\012-----------\015\012Also you try cleaning the filters.As you mentioned in your question that you have already tried this but try to clean the filter as per the instructions mentioned in the service manual.And see if that reduces the bad smell.\015\012The manual specifically states not to use a mild cleaning agent while washing the filters, you may wash the filters in cold or warm water using a scented mild detergent, and make sure to remove any excess water in the filters since this is what normally creates the horrible smelling odor after it has been washed and dried.Also let the filter get completely dried up before you refit the filter again.If its fitted wet the bad odor smell comes.You can use hairdryer to dry the filter quickly.Check out if this is helping.Thanks.Helpmech.\015\012

I have a Panasonic MCE6003 vacuum cleaner. I regretfully leant it to a neighbour and it came back full of dog hair and keeps cutting out. I cleaned out the dust container and the main filter but it still kept cutting out after 5 minutes. I decided to unscrew the part with the motor and wash the filter inside.It was all going well until a large rubber washer bit, a piece that looks like the thermostat and a little white button attached to two black wires fell out and now I have no idea how to put

Over heating? My 10 gallon 4HP shop vac has started shutting off after about 30 sec. after I turn it on to use. It smells real hot after I shut it off. I have changed the filter and the bag, which did not solve the problem. Any suggestions on what the problem could be? It's only about 31/2 years old and I really don't use it all that much, mainly for getting up dust and cob-webs from my garage.

I had used Dyson DC08 to **** out a wet car carpet. A few days later when using the V/C, there was a burning smell. Subsequently I washed the flexible hose, changed the pre-filter and post filter , but I wrongly put the pre-filter in the spot for the post filter. When the V/C was next used, there was again a burning smell and sparks. The filters were switched, but the V/C would not re-start. What shall I do?

This had happened before and the repair shop did not see any problems with the machine, so we replaced the filter and were very carful not to overfill the tank and to change the water often. Now it has happened again and ruined another filter. Do you know what could be causing this issue? Can the filter be cleaned or will a new one be
