Bissell Bolt ION 2-in-1 Cordless Vacuum

Troubleshoot for the Bissell Bolt ION 2-in-1 Cordless Vacuum

The Bissell Bolt ION may not power on due to the wrong charger being used or not being fully charged.

The manufacturer box should contain the correct charger.

The vacuum should be first charged for 4 hours before use.

There may be problems with the dirt container, the filters, or the foot.

The dirt container may have to be cleaned or positioned correctly for suction power to resume.

The filters may need to be replaced and changed.

The foot is loose and may need to be readjusted and secured it in its position in its body.

There can be something obstructing the foot. The foot needs to be detached from the body and have the obstructions removed. Place the foot back in its position.

The dirt container may be full of debris or the dirt container or filter might be installed incorrectly.

Empty the dirt container and put it back in its position. The dirt container may be installed incorrectly, so secure the dirt container in the correct position.

If the problem is not with the dirt container, then it might be the filter. The filter must be installed correctly.

It is important to use the correct charger.

Only use the charger that came with the vacuum.

The brush roll may be jammed or needs to be reset.

The obstruction in the brush roll needs to be removed.

Turn off the brush roll and remove the obstruction. Wait 15 seconds for cool down and turn the power on.

Call Bissell customer service! Mine did that after a yr and I’m on vacuum 3 of the replacement vacuums cause they kept doing that same thing. Charged over night and boom not turning on! I refuse to use the outlet that I had been plugging them into at all now.

If you remove the vaccum from the stick while it is on. It will render the vaccum usless.
