Why My Bissell CrossWave Won’t Charge?

(Last Updated On: September 22, 2022)

There could be several issues for why your CrossWave cordless vacuum is not charging, we have listed some of the most popular ones and ways in which you can fix.

Why is the Bissell CrossWave not charging?

  1. Check the power cord and plug. If it is damaged, replace it.
  2. Battery may not be properly installed. Check connections on the battery. Make sure they are secure and clean of debris or dirt.
  3. Bissell CrossWave has encountered a problem with its internal hardware/software which prevents full use of the vacuum during operation until Bissell repairs or replaces the product.
  4. Some Bissell CrossWave models come with a wall mount. Make sure the vacuum is placed on the charging dock correctly. Check for puddles or moisture under or around the docking station, which can cause corrosion to metal contacts and prevent charging.
  5. The charging assembly in Bissell CrossWave has failed for some reason (broken wire). If the vacuum is still under warranty, contact Bissell to make arrangements for repair/replacement.
  6. If the vacuum is out of warranty, you will need to replace the charging assembly. You can purchase replacement parts here.
  7. Power button must be in the on position (not locked) in order to charge the vacuum. If this is not done, check that it locks into place when pushed down. If you need help with repairs of the charging assembly or power switch, please contact a professional for assistance.
  8. Brush roll has become stuck and caused an internal error on your Bissell vacuum
  9. Dirty water has entered inside the whole thing
