nope nope nope

Elizabeth Dodd, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this vacuum to replace a previous Bissell.... this one seems very weak in comparison. Although it will pick up debris from the surface of the carpet, I'm not convinced it's getting anything deeper down. Even with filters and containers clean, the suction seems very weak.

Not made to last

MAMAMINOZZI, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: We purchased this vacuum cleaner about 2 years ago and the motor is about ready to die on us. We've made sure to keep the filters clean and empty the caniseter regularly but it just isn't holding up as well as we expected.

The honeymoon is over (or "my wife was right")

Craig Maloney, Amazon
3 July 2010
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that this vacuum starts off like a champ. It's efficient, cleans well, has a plethora of tools, and is the most amazing vacuum cleaner at an amazing price. Unfortunately, the honeymoon is now over.

Good sucking but that's it.

Eca, Amazon
19 June 2010
  • Summary: The suction is great but moving it is a pain in the butt when it is on and you're actually vaccuming. Pushing it forward is probably the worst. I've had it for a few weeks now and today I almost got so frustrated with it not wanting to move properly that I wanted to just break it in half.

Don't waste your money

Phyllis, Amazon
19 June 2010
  • Summary: This vacuum seemed great at first. After a while it lost suction and the filters, several foam type which get dirty and need to be cleaned frequently, are not easy to remove without getting your hands and vacuum itself dirty. This is a dirty job and suction still isn't too good.

Don't spend a $ on this Bissel Cleanview Helix

ebmolly, Viewpoints
23 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I purchased this from Target on sale. I thought that since it was a Bissell, it would be a great product.  I was wrong.  It is SO heavy and it fills up SO quickly.  You need to empty the bag-less section very frequently.  Not my favorite item.  I will never purchase a vacuum like this again.

Works, but has MAJOR issues!

A Happy Mommy, Amazon
13 March 2010
  • Summary: I spent a lot of time researching vacuums and decided that we would buy this. I purchased it about 4 months ago. I realize that if I had purchased a $400 vacuum I probably wouldn't have these issue, but we can't afford that.

Was so hopeful...

K. T. CHI, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • Summary: After reading a few reviews, I decided to pull the trigger on this model. Like most of the reviewers have stated it was an easy and straight forward setup/assembly process. However, after the first couple of uses, which were great, the vacuum began to show some issues.
