 Bissell 24619 Features and Specifications

Bissell 24619 is corded, bagless upright vacuum cleaner with additional flexible cleaning hose.

Power cord is 30 feet (~9.15 m) long, allowing the user to reach and clean large area using just one wall power socket.

Bissell 24619 doesn't feature automatic power cord rewind system, instead, power cord is manually wrapped around power cord wrap hooks.

During operation unit draws 7 Amps (840 watts), providing good suction. If there is a clog of some kind and the air flow through the unit is decreased, motor thermal protection shuts the motor off in order to protect it. If that happens, turn off the unit, unplug it from the wall, and remove the clogs and blockages.

After waiting for 30 minutes, thermal protection system will reset itself, allowing the user to continue to use the vacuum.

Note: Bissell 24619 is simple to use vacuum, but just in case, before the first use read the manual thoroughly.

Bissell 24619 features fingertip suction controls, allowing the user to quickly change suction strength, according to the surfaces being vacuumed.

Other power controls include Power On/Off switch and the Brushroll Power On/Off switch, which are positioned on the vacuum's body.

Separate power and brushroll controls allow the user to turn brushroll off, when vacuuming sensitive and bare floors.

Note: When the vacuum is in upright position, brushroll is turned off even if the brushroll controls are 'On' - this is a safety feature, designed to protect the floors. For a brushroll to engage, the user must tilt the handle backward.


Bissell 24619 features so-called 'Tangle-Free Brushroll' of a novel design - it helps the unit to pick up deeply embedded dirt and pet hair, without tangled hair around the brushroll.

Brushroll cover is transparent, allowing the user to monitor the condition of the brushroll - in real life some tangles may occur, requiring the user to activate the brushroll on carpeted surfaces in order to get rid of the entangled hair. In worst case scenario, user should use scissors to remove lint, fibers or even hair from the brushroll, but generally, hair wrap occurs rarely.

Cleaner head and brushroll design allow the unit to clean (almost) from edge-to-edge, with the cleaning path width of 12 inches (~30.5 cm). Main cleaner head features automatic height adjustment system and thanks to the unit's lightweight (14.5 pounds, 6.6 kg) and advanced swivel design, unit is very maneuverable when vacuuming around the objects and obstacles commonly found at homes and apartments.

Also, main cleaner head features LED headlights, helping the user to vacuum in low-light conditions and to spot dirt on the floors even during the daylight.

Dirt bin is transparent, allowing the user to see amount and type of vacuumed dirt. Dirt bin features so-called 'Hands-Free Empty Dirt Tank' technology in combination with 'Cyclonic Pet Hair Spooling System' - for short, dirt bin is emptied quickly and easily from the bottom, without touching the dirt and/or making a mess (unless the dirt bin is emptied 3-4 feet above the trash can).

Dirt bin capacity is 0.75 liters, and should be emptied after each use, especially if the floors are heavily soiled.

post motor filterBissell 24619 also features so-called 'SmartSeal Allergen System' with an optional Febreze Filter. Unit is design not to leak out vacuumed air, which is after filtration released back into the vacuumed area.

Air filtration is good and is based on cyclonic action, pre-motor felt and foam air filters and pleated post-motor air filter.

Optionally, Febreze air filters may be used for decreasing pet and other household odors and for releasing pleasant fragrance in the air, increasing the feeling of cleanliness and freshness.

 Pre-motor air filters and the inner cyclone separator are washable, just be sure to dry them thoroughly before assembling the unit again. High-performance pleated filter is NOT washable - it should be taken out and tapped onto the trash can to release the fine dust and other fine debris.

After 3-6 months, replace the filters - this of course depends on the the vacuum's use and vacuumed dirt and surfaces.

Note: Bissell 24619 is designed for vacuuming dry dirt only. Vacuuming moist/wet dirt or with moist/wet air filters is not allowed and can void the warranty. Also, never use your vacuum without the filters.

Bissell 24619 comes with 5-year limited warranty, which is very good warranty in this price class.

Also, the crevice tool increases the reach, helping the user to clean easily surfaces from the floor to the ceiling.

2 in 1 pet dusting brush2-in-1 Pet Dusting Brush is two cleaning tools in one, hence the name. The rubber nubs remove pet and human hair and other tough dirt from upholstery, stairs and similar areas, while dusting brush soft bristles help remove dust, pollen and other fine debris from sensitive surfaces.

turboeraser toolPet TurboEraser Tool is motorized cleaning attachment featuring small brushroll powered by an air turbine (paddle wheel).

Pet TurboEraser Tool is used for vacuuming pet and human hair and other debris from beds, sofas, upholstery, stairs etc. Since it is motorized tool, it cleans faster than '2-in-1 Pet Dusting Brush', but it should not be used on sensitive surfaces. For such surfaces, manual '2-in-1 Pet Dusting Brush' is recommended.
