Having problems with your Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?
Keeps cutting out, and blowing the fuse, not so if tools are being used though
The information you've given suggests a problem with the main brush drive motor. Unfortunately this motor is in a place where it can very easily get wet - hence fuses blowing. Repair is something you probably won't want to attempt yourself (lots of people take them apart and can't reassemble them!). If you do get it repaired, expect the same thing to happen again sooner or later. Alternatively, save money and hire a professional carpet cleaner now and then.

I have a Zanussi 1700W bagless upright vacuum cleaner which keeps cutting out after about 5/10 mins use. I had to replace the rubber drive belt which snapped not long after purchasing and it was fine for a while, but now its just keeps cutting out after a small amount of use. Nothing wrong with belt which is still intact so we don't know what the problem is. It's a great cleaner otherwise - but it's driving us mad!! Please help!
I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that. Also it is making a big puddle on the floor, probably because the brushes on the main unit keep spinning when I am trying to use the hand tool which I dont think they are supposed to do? Can a
The brushes can be turned off on most of them via a switch on the hood. There shouldn't be water coming out onto the floor unless you are pulling the trigger at that top. You probably broke this when attempting to use the tools. ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

I have a new electrolux el7025a-r and it keeps cutting off while I am vacuuming. I am using the small powerhead on hard floors and I have checked the hoses for blockages and the bag is new. I can not figure out why it keeps turning off in the middle of a job.
The wands are notorious for going out on that unit. One or both probably need to be replaced.

HI, I have a Kenmore 25813 and it seems like there is an intermittent short. When I have the extension wand on and the power floor attachment on, when it rotate the wand the light cuts out and so does the power floor attachment, when I twist it back it comes on again. I don't have this problem if I remove the wand and just use the crevice tool with the hose. Any idea where the short might be and can I fix it myself? Thanks. Gary

Sounds like you've done a lot of troubleshooting on this unit. It could be that the bushings are worn and the "play" in them is causing them to seize (this is often accompanied by a chattering sound from the bushings).\015\012\015\012I w ... Vacuums
