Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Older style ....no water coming out...did clean all hoses...


Answers :

The first thing you need to do is tip the vac up on its back and have a\015\012good look at where the water/detergent comes out of, you should see\015\012several little jets running along the bottom of the vac right at the\015\012front, now what you need to do is get a long pin and give all of these\015\012little jets a good poke with a long needle make sure you do this to all\015\012of the jets.

Once you have done this sit it back up right and\015\012give it a try, you may need to hold the trigger down for 2 or 3 min to\015\012let the water/detergent work its way through the vac.

If how\015\012ever it still dont work then empty the detergent/water bottle and fill\015\012it with hot but not boiling water and add a couple of table spoons of\015\012salt now put the bottle back on the vac and leave it for 3 or 4 min\015\012then switch is on and hold the button down again for 2 or 3min. Now the\015\012hot water and the salt should have broke down any build up of gel that\015\012the detergent has turned into over time.

Repeat this process 2 or 3 times to give it chance to work its way around the vac.
After\015\012doing this check the jets again and poke with a needle as the chances\015\012are the blockage has now moved and is by the jets, now give it another\015\012try.

Now if you never found the blockage empty the water/detergent bottle\015\012and check where the water comes out of the bottle into the vac you\015\012should be abe to press it and see if the water flow freely out of the\015\012bottle. if it does then you need to check the part of the vac where\015\012this bottle attaches to, their should be some sort of filter where this\015\012bottle fits so have a look their and clean with a pin if blocked.
If\015\012you find no blockage then try again with the hot water to rule out 100%\015\012blockage being the problem. if you have checked and their is no\015\012blockage then this would indicate a problem with the pump or a blockage\015\012in the pump, now as the pump is not a serviceable part you cant take it\015\012apart and clean it so the only option you have is keep trying with hot\015\012water or replace pump( check any warranty before you do any work\015\012yourself)

The hot salty water should work but make take several tries until it breaks down the gel build up.

Now\015\012what they should have told you when you purchased your machine is that\015\012after every use empty the detergent bottle and fill with clean warm\015\012water and then let this run through your cleaner, you need to do this\015\012as if you leave the detergent in the bottle and leave it in the pipes\015\012inside the vac then what happens is that over time the detergent turns\015\012to a gel so making sure the detergent is gone will guarantee the vac\015\012will work the next time you want to use it

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

The automatic drain hose is hooked up to the back of the unit, but when the bucket is full, the automatic pump does not work. The automatic pump should come on and empty the bucket, but it does not come on unless the water is siphoned manually through the tube. Then the pump come on and empties the bucket. I have reattached the tube and still had to manually siphon the water through the tube. Any suggestions?

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.
