    Best Bagless Vacuum Ever!

    Customer review by Kevin78

    I Love Everything about this vacuum, it has very strong suction, the attachments are well made/designed and they stay put while vacuuming. This Bissell is reasonably quiet and it made my carpets look brand new again. I was shocked to see what ended up in the canister the first time I used this Bissell because I had just vacuumed the carpet prior with my friends borrowed (New & Expensive) bagless that begins with the letter "D". When I showed my friend the full Bissell dirt canister and explained I had just vacuumed with her "beloved" D vacuum.. she was shocked and now wants this Bissell. I have had SIX other brands of bagless vacuums within a months time, trying to find one that worked well and didn't make a huge mess while being emptied. I had other brands that the filters immediately clogged with tons of dust and dirt This Bissell Healthy Home amazed me with it's 9 Cyclonic action because after cleaning my entire home, the dirt canister was Full of dirt and dust BUT the filters were spotless. I checked the yellow foam filter located behind the dirt canister and it looks and smells brand new, as well as the white HEPA filter. The Bissell dirt canister is super easy to empty too, hold it over the trash and push one button then close it and it clicks firmly/securly right back onto the vacuum! So bottom line, if you want a great vacuum cleaner that has strong suction, is built/designed well and easy to operate.. Buy this Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum! My friend paid THREE times as much for her "Bagless vacuum that never looses suction" and the Bissell cleaned much better! I don't understand the other (low) reviews as this Bissell is very well made and has a FIVE year warranty, has Strong suction and amazed me with all the dirt and dust it pulled out of my carpets and upholstery. Every brand has an occasional lemon, but Bissell has a toll free number and a FIVE year warranty, so I have total confidence in this vacuum & Bissell. I have owned this Bissell now for a month and vacuumed about 4-5 times each week, and every time I am shocked by the amount of dirt this vacuum picks up. Also the filters are Still spotless and look brand new, so with the 9 Cyclones the dirt is staying in the canister where it belongs and the air in my home is much cleaner thanks to the "Sealed" HEPA filter on this vacuum. (Yes, it has a rubber seal and is fastened down over the exhaust, so it's true "Sealed" HEPA filtration) Oh and a few other very important points... This vacuum has a Lifetime Belt! And for clean freaks like me.. this Bissell has Microban in the hose and container to stop odors & keep bacteria from growing in the vacuum! Thank you and Happy Cleaning! :)

    People! I just brought this vacuum and just finish using it. This vacuum has so much suction power I thought my carpet was going to come up!! This is the best vacuum I purchased so far!!! I'm very impressed with this product! But I hope it's not one of those vacuums that work for the first week and fail on you. So far I would recommend this product to family and friends!!!! Also I never thought my carpet was this dirty. I saw dirt and dust you couldn't see with the naked eye once I dump my canister! Peace out! and God Bless!

    Best Vacuum Ever

    Had this vacuum for about 5 months and it has worked great. My house never looked this clean and it even smells cleaner. Last vacuum had bags and would start to smell so I had to change bags often (Have 3 big dogs) so I tried this because it's bagless and has the microban. Does a super job getting all the dog hair up from my carpet, wood floors and furniture. Gave it five stars cause I thought Id have to spend double the $ to get this great of a bagless vacuum. I rarely have much to say about a vacuum cleaner but this one is the best Ive owned. I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially dog owners.

    I purchased this vacuum for it's features & attachments, also it's 5yr warranty & lifetime belt. Most vacs you see these days only have a 1yr warranty if that. I love the suction this has as well. I vacuumed my entire apt with a friends vac and than the Healthy Home and the Healthy Home picked up even more hair,dust, dirt & carpet fuzz than I thought there would be. Vacuuming the couch and the beds was way easier than ever before and the dirt that came off the couch was shocking. I also like the see-through panel above the brush roller so I can see if there is hair that needs to be removed. Both my daughter and I have long hair and we are always seeming to vacuum up hair off the carpets...kinda like the drain in the tub...gross I know but still people shed to lol. We only have the one cat but I did have my daughter vacuum her cat tree and OMG the fur that came off that was gross. Freaked out the cat but hey she'll deal with it lol

    Seems to be Good Vacuum

    So I bought this because my Dyson Ball died on me. For the price of a repair I could buy a new Bissell ... so I did. After a couple of months it seems to be a solid vacuum. I have things I like better than the Dyson and some I do not. Like Better 1. The dirt container is larger and needs emptying less. 2. More solidly built than the Dyson. The Dyson, in all honesty, felt flimsy and in retrospect it was. 3. Longer attachment hose 4. Came with more attachments. I like the small suction fed beater attachment for vacuuming stairs and couches, etc. Like Less 1. The Dyson was a bit more maneuverable. 2. The attachment hose was easier to extend and use 3. There is a choke point where the vacuum motor attaches to the small connector hose. It clogged once but cleared without issue. 4. The small floor attachment will not stay in place on the back of the vacuum. The Same 1. Seems to have as much or more power as the Dyson Net result is it seems to be a good vacuum and is as good or better than the Dyson Ball I replaced. Hopefully it lasts a long time.

    ok here is my review, and i m only writing it after i read other pplz reviews and figured that Bissell actually replies back. I agree wz everybody else, its very powerful, the way it collects dust is cool .. and i was tempted bcz i had allergy,but i think i m having trouble using it, as i m not used to the upright vacuums and this is the first one i ever used. I came online to watch the how to video, but it doesn't play on my computer (a mac). i m not sure if my vacuum has a problem or i m misusing it but when i turn it on i don't see it sucking unless i use the attached hose, but if i just use it, as i believe it should be like, upright position, it never sucks, it mainly brushes. but i still see the dirt in front of me. unless i suck it with the hose,then its gone! i don't believe i have to use both hands to vacuum the floor.Please Help ! one more negative thing about it though is that its too loud

    Comment from Joe - 7/27/2012

    Thanks for the feedback Jamiela. If it is brand new the suction diverter (clear plastic on the back) may not be diverting because the upholstery hose isn't securely replaced in the back of the machine like Claud mentions below. Try that and see if it works.

    Great buy

    having developed bad allergies over the last few years, my allergist told me to get air filters for my home and a good vacuum and to vacuum regularly. I started researching and came across the bissell healthy home. i compared it to other top brand products and decided this was everything I was looking for at the best price. Before I bought mine, I vacuumed my house. When I got home with the new vacuum I went through the house again and was surprised how much it picked up having just vacuumed a few hours earlier. It works so well and even though I have only had it a week so far, I can tell a huge difference in the way my carpet feels and the freshness of the house in general. The attachments work amazing on furniture for pet hair and on hard floors. I would definitely recommend the healthy home vacuum, especially for house holds with animals or people with allergies! All in all this was a Great buy.

    Light stopped working, VERY loud, roller rattles

    I bought this machine two days ago. I have used it twice. The first time I used it, I noticed it was really loud and had a high-pitched whine that hurt my ears. I finally put in earplugs. My dog is particularly afraid of this vacuum so he can't be anywhere near it when it's running. Also, when the roller runs, it rattles as if there is a loose bearing, and every time I push forward, the roller shuts off. I realize it should do this in the upright position, but not while I am vacuuming! The first time I ran it, I noticed it had a light, which isn't really a critical feature of a vacuum, in my opinion. However, the second time I ran it the light didn't work. I looked in the owner's manual and all over the machine to see if there was an on/off switch for the light, but couldn't find one. With all of these issues, I am concerned about the overall (lack of) quality, so I am returning it.

    Comment from Joe - 4/17/2012

    Thanks for the review HeatherKT. Your issues sound like there may have been an issue with that particular unit. If you are unable to return the unit please contact us by phone or email at The great thing about the Healthy Home vacuum is it has a 5-year limited warranty on it so you are protected. I have this unit and it works great with none of the issues you've mentioned so please get in touch with us.

    The wheel closest to the handle release pedal fell off the vacuum while vacuuming during its second use. Bissell replaced the vacuum 4 separate times due to the very same wheel falling off of each one of the 4 replacement vacuums. We received and returned 4 defective vacuums within 30 days (required to sever and return only the electrical cords). After receiving 4 replacement vacuums within a 30 day period, each equally having the identical defect, my wife and I concluded we must resign ourselves to investing in a higher-grade vacuum. We're not downplaying the level of customer service at Bissell. The customer service was quite fair and equitable. We received a full refund for the original vacuum. However, we will never purchase another Bissell product after this experience. The fact that Bissell made no attempt to retrieve the defective vacuums for analysis to correct the problem made our decision to cut our ties an easy one. We've lost our confidence and reliability in their products. Check the wheel if you own this vacuum. Make sure it's attached securely You'll know if it's not -it will pull right off.

    Comment from Joe - 6/28/2013

    Thanks so much for your review Rob. Due to your inquiry we were able to correct this issue, as a small number of our Healthy Home vaccums had a tendancy for the clip that holds the wheel on to slip off. We have double-checked our stock to make sure no one else runs into your same experience. We always want reliable products and we've been making this model for over 3 years with no problems, so thanks again for your inquiry.

    Best Vacuum Ever!!

    I now enjoy vacuuming!! Never thought I would say that. I live in New Mexico. Out in the desert where there's lots of wind, dust, and sand. Until I purchased this vacuum I could never get the carpet in my sunroom really clean. I've found that with the attachments I can even vacuum the stone walls and get all the sand and dust off the walls. All of the rooms in my home, with the exception of the bedrooms, are tiled with wool area rugs. The bare floor setting on this vacuum is great yet I can easily go from the tile to area rugs. The various height settings allow me to customize my vacuum for either carpet in the bedrooms or the expensive wool area rugs I have elsewhere in the house. And considering the dust and sand here my area rugs have not looked this good since I purchased them. I also love the fact that when the vacuum is in the "upright" position the roller bar stops. Great when using the attachments, but also great when stopping for a quick second to move furniture or reposition the vacuum. In reviewing the Bissell website I noted that should I ever need replacement parts they will be easy to order. Keep up the good work, Bissell!
