Having problems with your Bissell SpotLifter 1716 Bagless Handheld Vacuum ?

I am wondering how I can clean the inside of my bissell spotlifter powerbrush hand held cleaner? I want to clean the part where you suction up - it is full of gunk and hair and I can't figure out if it comes apart or not so I can clean it. Can you help?

\015\012Hello,
\015\012I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
\015\012Normally on the Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush the item will comes apart from the sides into 2 halves and then you can either clean out or blow out the inside of the
\015\012Bissell Spotlifter Powerbrush, also you can take a wire coat hanger and straighten it out and bend a hook @ the end of the wire hanger and you can use the hook to pull out the clog or whatever is blocking the opening and you can also use a blower or an old tooth brush to clean the motor or to brush it off.
\015\012Always, check with your local vac dealer. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
