Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?

A friend used my Bissell Proheat Clearview shampooer, and didn't wash out the shamppoo bottle nor turn the dial to water only after using. The flow assembly on the bottle was destroyed. I bought a new bottle but still can't get the shampoo to flow. Hope you can help.

Hi,

If your floor cleaner doesn't spray, chances are the heater unit is clogged.

The heater unit is located inside the body of the machine, behind the\015\012power/heater switches. Remove 6 screws and split the case open. The silver metal "box" inside is the heater unit. Take note of how\015\012the hoses and wires are connected. Better yet, take a digital photo for\015\012reference.
\015\012Remove the wires and hoses. Take the box to a work bench, and unscrew the 6 or 7 screws that hold\015\012on the lid. Don't lose the red washers that are found on the inside of\015\012the box that keep water from leaking out of the screw holes You'll see a "maze" where the water runs around to get heated up.\015\012Clear this of all debris. The inlet and/or outlet ports may also be\015\012clogged. I used an appropriate sized drill bit mounted on an electric\015\012screwdriver to carefully "drill" out the clogs. Make sure all the\015\012debris has been removed. I used an electric screwdriver because my 18v\015\012DeWalt hammer drill would have been overkill Reassemble to box -Rewire and plumb the box according to your notes or reference photo. Put the machine back together.

Last year my wife and I bought a new Dirt Devil Reaction All Surface vaccuum cleaner to replace the older Platinum Force. After using it a couple of times the new one gets clogged with dog hair easily and shuts down. I cleaned it out completely including the hepa filter but it will not handle the dog hair. The old one never had a problem and still works. We went back to using the old vaccuum cleaner because we can not find the receipt and had not registered the new one and are stuck with a new 1

I have bought new Hoover bags on two occasions. The first spares I bought were the Xxxl variety and I didn't think they fitted that well. The next spares I bought were the type g megafilt.

Rainbow Vacuum, about 5 yrs old (bought new, no issues prior) - my 6yr old tipped it on it's side while water was in basin. Now when I turn the power on, it makes a very loud sound in the motor and you can feel the vibration on the floor. The suction still works and basin still catches dirt - the noise is just so loud and I'm not sure if I should continue use or how to fix -?

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great.

The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

I just bought a westinghouse unplugged vacuum cleaner.( It is new) The design is awesome, and when it works it works great . But it has very short battery life. 1 battery lasts only about 5 minutes, and the other is even less. I did all the instructions told me as far as conditioning and charge yet I still do not get a very solid amount of vacuuming time. Is there any thing I can do?


Usually a short battery life means bad battries that aren't holding its charge. Being new I would think it would have a year's warranty on it. Find out who is the closest warranty shop and have them fix it. ... Vacuums

I have a 2 fluorescent light fixture in my bathroom. The right side light quit working. I took the starter out of the left side and put it in the right and it worked. Starter, right? I bought a package of 2 Leviton starters FS 2 15w. They didn't work. Thinking bad, I returned it for another package. Still not working. The original starter is a Sylvania FS 2. Is it possible to have FOUR bad "new" starters? Do I need to replace it with the EXACT same starter? This light fixture is 38 years old. No

Hello, I have a problem with my Eureka Powerline bagged upright vacuum. It has a 12 amp motor and is model #4352, Type D. It was probably bought new in 1998. My problem is, while vacuuming today the motor seemed to slow down all of the sudden and then began smelling like burning rubber. I shut the vacuum off to check for blockages but could not find anything blocked. When I then turned it on again it runs but seems to only be running at 1/2 the motor speed and still has the rubber buring smell.


It sounds like a rubber sealing in the motor has come loose and is being constantly rubbed against the walls of the motor with would cause the smell and loss of motor speed caused by the fricton of rubber against the rod so if you can get to the moto ... Vacuums
