Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?


Answers :

A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
\015\012If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
\015\012Check the filter, and change if dirty.

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry.
