Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a bissell quickwash 1950-e. I bought it Jan. 2006, and have only used it 8-10 times, I live in a very hard water area, so I though if I put some vinegar in with the cleaning solution it would get rid of any hard water deposits, unfortunatly the solution went lumpy in the tank and stoped spraying out water, I have opened it, hose clean, sprayer not blocked, x at bottom of water container when depresed water trickles out, component that opens the x when water container placed, also ran wate


Answers :

Hard to say what is causing your problem, replacing the cap and insert on the water tank may help, part #2041111, even tho it may trickle out water when depressed, they can still be bad. The other thing would be the rod not relesing the water like it should. The big draw back to this model is Bissell has obsoleted all of its parts and most are no longer available. Might be wiser to buy new.

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o

I just got the majestic and it doesn't seem to have a lot of suction power- I ran water thru the hose and it drained out fine I also put the hose on top and blew it out. Could it still be the hose?-or does it sound like a bigger problem?


Did you change the filter cone? Clogged pores can and do inhibit airflow. Bent fan blades can be another problem. Holes, slits, and cracks, no matter how small, in the hose can result in reduced suction.\015\012And you should NEVER run water ... Filter Queen Majestic Canister Vacuum

I have Bissell ProHeat 2X 9300-M that I tried to use again today. Is does not dispense solution when turned to Floor Cleaning, when switched to Hose it seems to be working fine. Brushes and suction are working as well. Soap and water containers are full. I took off and replaced tanks, waited to prime the pump multiple times without success. Not sure what is going on.

Replaced the pump for a 9300 M Bissell Proheat 2x as the water solution was not releasing to the carpet. Once rehooked the lines the solution appears to be coming from the water tank and returning to the used tank and bypassing spraying on the carpet. How can I be sure the hoses are hooked up correctly?

We have a Bissell Proheat 2X (model 8920). The problem we are having is when water/soap is initially released (all settings) it continues to leak out the front water spray nozzles unit the water containers are empty. The vacuum works but can't keep up with the continuous water leaking out. Do you have any idea what is sticking open to allow the continued release of water when the machine is running? Thanks Rick

It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged.\015\012\015\012Some people s ... Bissell Powersteamer 1694 Upright Vacuum

The water tank on my bissell proheat 2x is not keeping the clean and dirty water separate. I;ve checked the container and there doesn't seem to have anything wrong with it.

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x cleaner which has worked perfectly on every occasion. Today I filled the machine as usual with water and formula and switched on, the motor ran, the lights were on and the brushes rotated but upon pressing the spray trigger no water or formula was released. I have cleaned the jets underneath and also followed instructions to release any airlock. It still wont release the water/formula. What else can I do? Thanks Charles

I am also noticing that there is air being blown out of sides where the dirty water container is. (don't recall that in the past).

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water

I followed all instructions, vacuumed beforehand, used distilled water even though my water is not considered hard, cleaned slowly, etc. I am wo
