Having problems with your Bissell 1697-7 Powersteamer Pro Deluxe Vacuum ?

Please help! my cleaner will roll on a flat surface but when I try to roll on the carpet it is jumpy like. I checked the setting and it is in the right place.


Answers :

It could be that the belt or belts are worn and when you put the brush against the resistance of the carpet the belt slips and causes it to be jumpy. If you haven't changed the belt lately I would try that. You can get the belts for this model here:

I have an older model F6056-900 Hoover steamvac Spin Scrub Cleaner. My first problem was that I loaned it out to a friend. Anyway she ran over the hose (used for attachments) with her car. I tried using the cleaner for carpet cleaning this morning but when I tried to put the solution tank into place...its loose...won't snap back in like it used to. When I can get it somewhat in place the solution just complete drains out through the bottom fo the tank. The leak is where the small hole on the bot

I have a Bissell ProHeat 2x, and I did something dum. I had some powdered cleaner that said it works with carpet cleaners-well I mixed it in-and the next time I tried to use it, nothing came out. So, I took it part to check what was wrong-and found out that the powdered cleaner solidified in places. I cleared the nozzels, nothing. I think the solenoid, between the heater and nozzels is pluggd, and possibly the heater. I've got a question-could I use CLR to clean the heater, with replacing t

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI - I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn't wet. Any tips? The manual doesn't help.

My Kirby Heritage II vacuum is not picking up dirt up out of the carpet like usual, and I have to keep setting it lower to pick anything up. I finally get it to such a low setting that it starts sucking the carpet up and makes a whirring noise, and starts smelling. Every time this happens, we find the belt has been burned. We are wondering if the brush roll inside with the brushes that pick up dirt are worn out and too short?

I don't feel that the vac is close enough to the carpet anymore .. it's almost like I have to push the head down so it reached the carpet to roll the brush through it ... I've tried a friends vac and it shows nicely that you've just vacuumed the carpet .. heavy traffic areas are not getting pulled back up .. I have the short shag type carpet .. Thanks


Consider disassembling and cleaning your unit. Sometimes dirt and grit will build up, and when wiped away allow the moving parts to function better.

I have a Kirby G4 Vacuum Cleaner - MOdel G4 D. I have never had any problems or repairs done to it in the past ten plus years that I've had it. This is an upright vacuum. I was vacuuming the carpet floor and was not having any trouble at all. I switched the vacuum off and moved it into a different room. When I tried to turn on the vacuum, it would not turn on. I checked with different outlets, used both front attachment and hose attachment. Checked the front part of the motor/ spiral case. This

The bobbin does not turn at all causing a loud whirring sound and the needle goes up and down as if it were making stitches.

I have a Miele S1721 Powerhouse upright vacuum. When the belt broke I took it into the shop (because when i tried to replace the belt, the tension was so tight I couldn't get it back together!!). When I got it home I DISCOVERED THAT THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT DIDN'T WORK anymore. It seems like it's set really hight, because it no longer contacts and brushes the carpet. So it's now useless. I went back to the shop and the tech denied that there was anything wrong. (I didn't have the vac with me). No

Brush Roll belt stops turning durring vacuuming on WindTunnel self-propelled, v belt is a little loose with handle down. Tensioning roll is engaged OK, but fully at the end of its travel. Replaced belts flat and v, but still stops turning even on high carpet setting when vacuuming. Carpet setting and height adjustment appears to be working OK, roll is clean and turns easily when out. Also turns easily until it engages the carpet. Self propel function works just fine.

How is the V-belt tension adjusted (Hoover Model U6439-900)or how do I know if the tension is correct? There seems to be a lot of "play" in the belt and I'm wondering if that is the reason the brush roll only turns as the wheels turn, regardless of the carpet height setting. And yes, the brush roll is set for carpet, not hard floor. Or is the cause of the problem something other than the V-belt? A new flat belt was installed when the machine was professionally serviced so I assume (?) that was a


The V-Belt is not adjustable. There are two ways the belt has no tension: (1) when the handle is upright, a mechanical lever takes the drive tension off the belt, and (2) the brush roll lever setting you described.
