NOTE : For optimal cleaning performance, adjust to the lowest practical setting. If your cleaner is difficult to push, adjust to the next higher setting.

  1. Place Handle in Upright Position.

    • Lowest Setting – For bare floors.
    • Medium Settings – For short and medium pile carpets.

Special On-Board Tools

Your BISSELL CleanView is not only a powerful carpet and rug vacuum cleaner, it’s also a versatile above floor vacuum cleaner when you select one of the special tools.

CAUTION: The Rotating Floor Brush continues to rotate while tools are in use.

Always place vacuum cleaner on floor with Handle in Upright position when using tools. Never place your fingers under the cleaner when it is running. Never place Powerfoot on furniture or uneven surfaces. Do not place vacuum cleaner close enough to objects to pull them into rotating brush.

Tip: Hair, string and small objects can block the Vacuum Hose or Tools. Check them occasionally for obstructions.
