Having problems with your Bissell Carpet Cleaner Powerbrush Deep Cleaner Vacuum ?

How do you prepare the driftlifter powerbrush for operation? What kind of cleaner should I use? How do I put it in the machine?

Answers :

Don't use the Bissell, Hoover or Dirt devil cleaner products in your machine. They are a petrolium based and will eventually gum up the machine. Use an alcohol based product put out by Riccar. It dries faster and won't leave a sticky residue in your carpet.

Need instructions how to use Hoover Steam Vac Spin Scrub. I borrowed it from my Sister and she left it with no instruction book or letting me know how to operate it. I put water & cleaner in top tank. That's all I know to do. Do I put any water in bottom tank? I figured not, since that is probably where the water goes when sucked up by vac. Do I leave lid on bottom tank? I usually use a commercial cleaner, and this is very different. I need to know NOW, as I must return it to her today, and I'm

My Bissell Dirtlifter Powerbrush carpet cleaner will not roll. The back wheels roll fine, but when you put the machine down flat, the front part (where the roller is) sticks and will not roll.

I had the same problem. It would pull backwards but not go forward. A closer examination revealed the clear plastic part on the bottom in the very front of the machine had popped loose on one side. If you look at the front of the machine, th ... Vacuums

I've had my Dyson DC14 vacuum cleaner now for approximately 9 months and been very happy with my purchase. However, It is used sparingly maybe twice a week at the very most. The problem is when I try to use the item on my carpet, you have to push really hard to get it to move. It's as though the suction power is far to strong. It certainly doesn't glide as I think it should. It still picks up as usual but I cannot imagine that having to 'force' the machine to move is the normal operating procedu

I just bought a Hoover Platinum Collection MaxExtract Carpet Cleaner (Model No. F8100900). This is the first time I've used it and got half way through one room and the unit cut off and has no power at all. No lights anywhere. On/Off button is inoperable. I checked the outlet and it's still operating so it's not a circuit breaker issue. The problem appears to be with the machine. Has anyone heard of this happening this quickly? Is there a reset button on the machine>

Bissell Powerease Lighweight Deep Cleaner. (Shampooer) After I fill the solution tank with the solution and water, I put it in it's slot, but all of the contents just come flowing out. I have only used this machine twice and it worked ok. You are supposed to press the trigger and the solution sprays out and then release the trigger when you want it to stop. But like I said, now I just put the tank on and all the contents come flowing out. I don't know what's wrong or how to stop it.

I have a Hoover Deluxe Spin Scrub carpet cleaner that has lost suction. I read the solution by Chris Jones of GoVacuum.com, in which he described the design flaw whereby the tool attachment hose tears at the point of connection with the motor housing. That is the case with my machine. Now I just need to know how to repair it. What kind of tape can I use? Plumber's tape? Please help me!!!

A tear in the hose will only affect pick up through the hose when using it to clean furniture, stairs, and such. It will have no effect on the carpet cleaning operation. If the hose cannot be replaced for a while, black electrical tape is one solutio ... Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub Upright Vacuum

Brushes won't turn on the bissell proheat 2X steam cleaner-I don't have the manual to see if there is a button I am not pushing to turn on the brushes. Also, do you put the clean water in the "bladder" in the tank? Sorry I am so dumb-this cleaner was given to me with no manual and I can't figure it out. There is a small tank on the bottom at the back of the machine, that says "formula here" and I don't know if that is where the cleaner goes or what that is for. The machine turns on just fine

I have a DYSON ROOT cycle carpet cleaner. It is cleaned and looked after and is in perfect working order. However, I have been using this machine, with inserted ear plugs, since the day I bought it.

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.

First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums

Apparently it's clogged somewhere as the previous owner appeared to have used it to vacumn up a powdered carpet cleaner. How do I resolve this problem as the machine is barely used and I would like to salvage it. Thank you

Check the belts first, if ok, does water squirt out of the hose nozzzle, if it does then the heate in the handle asm. is clogged where the tubes hook up to it. If no water squirts out, the the pump isn't working. Pull the top cover off, check all t ... Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the hose that goes to the flow indicator, blew in it and it started spinning. Put the deep cleaner back together, tried to use it and nothing. What else can we try? Can't afford to put it in the shop right now. Thanks in advance.

I borrowed my friends bissell to clean my carpet. It's the 7901. He brought it over and told me that it only sprayed out of the attachment hose. He said he couldn't figure out what was wrong.

The brushes are now just turning round very slowly and areobviously not picking up anything. Has the motor gone or is this repairable, or should I just get a new cleaner?
