Overall, the Bissell Powergroom 1654 receives good reveiws, yet some buyers have very mixed feelings with this one. The build quality is in general praised as being great, and overall the vacuum seems sturdy. Its powerhead works great on carpets as well, and the dirt cup is big enough to not fill up after only a couple of times using it. According to several users, the powercord is not very long. And combined with a narrow powerhead, it can be quite inefficient on large areas. Some buyers also had issues with the cyclones in the powerhead getting clogged by just a few long hairs, making it unable to spin. It is easy to spot this problem though, and easy to remove the hairs. All in all, this bagless canister vacuum is a great purchase for those in search of a powerful vacuum made for carpets as well as hard floors.

  1. DON’T BUY!!! This machine leaks dust on both ends where it attaches to the tank. I used this machine once, cleaned it and used it again. The second time I used it is when I noticed it leaked the dust. I made sure it was attached properly but it doesn’t attach tight and my whole house is full of dust much worse then before I even ran the vacuum cleaner. I can’t give this even 1 star as the Bissel company will not stand by it!!! Bissel used to be a good company but now not good at all!!!
    DO NOT purchase this item and be careful purchasing Bissel products!!!

  2. So I was happy with the Bissell powergroom suction, cord is a little short but the main reason I am writing this is the flimsy hose bends easy and worse after 6 months of use had no suction, took every piece off I could to clear hose what had happened is a string had lodged itself on the electrical cable that runs thru the hose, debris piled up on this until nothing was getting thru.
    The only solution was to cut the hose clear the string & debris clog and duct tape hose.
    Really after 6 months….not happy with design.
