Having problems with your Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum ?
Does not allow you to push forward
\015 I cannot get the cleaner to go forward. The belt is fine, as I checked that. It was working fine until I changed the water.\015
The screws were tight and it still rubs on the carpet.
Check to make sure that both clear window screws are tight. these will be the 2 screws on the very front and the 2 screws above the brushroll in the bottom of your steamer. if they come loose it will drag on your carpet and not want to push.

My Bissell Proheat 12 amp is hard to push forward(whether on or off). There is a loud clicking noise when pushing forward and it ''jumps'' up on every loud click. It's OK when pulling backwards, sprays and vacuums up water. Belt appears OK. Thanks

Hi, I have a Sebo X4 which is almost 3 years old. I haven't had any problems with it until the last couple of days when I notice a slight screeching noise when in upright position, coming from the roller mechanism area. If I slightly push the sebo forwards it gets worse, if I tip it back it stops. If I take the roller out and switch on, there is no noise. I have always been careful not to tip the machine forwards when using the hose, but I recently lent it to a friend whose hoover had broken do

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x Model 9200. The solution goes directly through to the carpet. The tank empties extremely fast even when I am not pushing the button. I have also noticed that I have soap spots on the carpet when pushing the cleaner forward. These spots are not even associated with the cleaning mechanism. I have inspected the cap on the tank, but it seems to be OK. Any suggestions?

G5 Kirby. Works in Neutral fine. When Drive is engaged and I push forward, the wheels do not rotate forwards, however on the pullback stroke the wheels rotate backwards. What causes this?

ON my Bissell 2x pro heat carpet cleaner the little red door will not close because the little red slide will not push it upward therby not allowing proper suction. What has always happened in the past that made the little red slide push the door close?
G-5 Kirby self-propel works intermitently. The handle must be jiggled until it engages forward. The same for reverse. Once underway it will continue indefinitely until the need to change direction. Jiggle go forward,jiggle go in reverse. It seems as though it helps to push the handle at an angle to the left depressing the switch on the left side at the base of the vacuum head.
Sounds like a loose wire, the wire is connected to the handle, you may be able to fix this yourself but be careful you can void the warranty by doing it your self. (most people make the problem worse) remember your kirby has a lifetime warranty (limi ... Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum
Greetings - my Dyson DC41 animal vacuum seems to be having problems with the ball - the right side of the ball if you were to be standing behind the machine seems like it's tightening as it rolls forward, as it tightens its harder to push the machine forward.

My eureka central vac power brush turns off when pushing forward than back on when pushing back. Ever seen this before?
