Bissell Pet Hair Eraser Upright Bagless Pet Vacuum Cleaner Machine with Tangle Free Brush Roll, 1650A reviews wont answer these questions
update January 24, 2018
How to repack in box?
Answer: I would call Bissell — they are very responsive. I’m sure they’ll give you some directions.
Question: How easy is it to empty and clean the filters? Another Bissel model I have requires you to reach in to the dirty compartment to loosen the filter.
Answer: It’s fairly easy to clean the filters. There are filters on top of the canister that can be removed to clean. There is also a filter inside the canister that can be removed. HOWEVER, the filter inside the canister cannot be replaced! If you do need to replace it, you have to buy a whole new canister!
Question: easy to clean?
Question: Do you wash the fabreeze pre filter if you use that instead of the yellow one?
Answer: The Fabreze pre-motor filter is washable.
Question: Does it have a light on it?
Answer: The crevice attachment does but not the vacuum itself.
Question: can the filters be washed or do they have to be replaced?
Answer: It’s half and half. Some of the filters are washable and others you have to buy to replace.
Question: Is the vacuum heavy
Answer: Yes heavier than I expected
Question: how many amps is this?
Answer: Worst vacuum ever returned it same day
Question: When amazon says Pet Hair Eraser only – does that mean the vacuum for $159 doesn’t come with the accessories like the lighted tool and attachments?
Question: Does it have Hepa filters?
Answer: this vacuum features the SmartSeal™ Allergen System with Febreze® Pet Odor Eliminator Filter that helps trap allergens inside the vacuum and eliminates pet odors as you vacuum.
how often does the filter need to be changed?
Answer: That’s a good question, the pre-motor filter is washable and can be reused. The post motor filter will need to be replaced once it becomes excessively dirty which can vary greatly by use.
Question: Of all your pet vacuums, which one is the best for the money?
Answer: I can’t say which is best because I’ve only use the “Pet hair Eraser” model. It doesn’t ever get clogged and things like hair or thread don’t become entwined on the beater bar. Edge cleaning is questionable and it’s very heavy (18#).
Question: does this have a retractable power cord?
Answer: No, my model does not. It has the usual wind around configuration like a lasso.
Question: how long is the detachable hose?
Answer: About 6 to 8 feet long, I can comfortably clean my ceiling fan without worrying about the vacuum tipping over.
Question: What size are the 2 lithium metal batteries?
Answer: Um, I think the customer meant the same question I have… does it need D, AA, or what size lithium metal batteries?
Question: does this work well for carpet in non pet homes
Answer: It’s great on carpet. Not good on hard surfaces. It’s also pretty big and heavy.
Question: does it use bags?
Question: How high ( in inches) is the front of the machine? My Oreck is too high to get to the baseboards of my kitchen cabinets.
Answer: I’d say about 2.5″ if set on bare floor. I have no trouble getting under my standard kitchen cabinets.
Question: Anyone else have a problem with the hair not going in the chamber just rolling into a ball at the rollers? Zero hair in chamber.
Answer: yea, it happens to me too. I have to get scissors and cut it free from the rollers. To bad that it wont get pass the rollers.
What is the difference between the 1650A and the 1650 W?
Answer: Aside from the color and where they’re sold, the two machines are the same!
Question: How wide is the head of the vacuum?
Answer: Roller edge (widest point) 12 ¼”
Question: Whats the difference between a 1650 1650a and a 1650w
Answer: Good question! Aside from where they’re sold – the three machines are the same.
Question: Does the Bissell pet hair eraser also come with 220 volt?
Question: Does it work on tile
Question: How much does this weigh?
Answer: I would guess around 30 lbs.
Question: How does this vac do on shag carpet?
Answer: I do not know. I do not have shag rugs, but it works well on “nappy” bathroom rugs.
Question: Do i have to buy the pet tool bundle to get all the attachments? or are there any that come with the vacuum itself?
Answer: Yes it comes w all listed in original ad
Question: Does this prodoct come with attatchments like others or can you at least buy attatchments separately?
Answer: hi Amanda!
yes, they include a decently long hose, a “pet hair” eraser (mini brush bar), and two hose attatchments.
This is seriously the best vacuum I’ve ever owned, better than my Dyson, Kirby or Rainbow.
Question: I am having a difficult time cleaning the inside of the dirt canister . Hair and dirt is trapped above the dirt compartment.
Answer: Not quite sure what area you are speaking of regarding the canister but wondering if you have tried undoing the upper part that unscrews inside the canister? There are lock and unlock symbols. The first time is quite hard to release. I called customer service and the told me if it broke they would send a free part.
