The Lower body of the Bissell QuickSteamer, water pours out from the body. Solution: I took apart the machine and there is a spring loaded valve with a rubber washer at the bottom. Think of the letter T upside down with the rubber washer on it. The washer stretches over the bottom and the spring creates a leakproof plug and won't allow water to pass till the button on the handle is pressed. This old washer came partially off and allowed water to leak. I purchased from the plumbing dept. a mi

I cleaned out my brush in the bottom front, cleaned out the small tubing going into the canister, and the canister itself. I also changed the filter.I snapped everything back into place, but Since then, it doesn't seem to have any suction and there seems to be a space between the canister and the bottom of the vacumm where the canister sits. At that area, you can feel air coming out when trying to vacumm and it just doesn't pick up, it seems to be just blowing stuff around.

I had the vacuum cleaner question about the canister and the wand/powerhead... the Kenmore Progressive Vacuum canister model 116.25812 and the canister not powering off without unplugging the vacuum. The solution I received that they both run on their own switch so it is normal makes sense. However, is there a power switch on the canister anywhere? The only way for the canister to be turned off is by unplugging it. Any ideas? One would think there would be a switch. I am new to fixya and hope

I have a bissell quickwash 1950-e. I bought it Jan. 2006, and have only used it 8-10 times, I live in a very hard water area, so I though if I put some vinegar in with the cleaning solution it would get rid of any hard water deposits, unfortunatly the solution went lumpy in the tank and stoped spraying out water, I have opened it, hose clean, sprayer not blocked, x at bottom of water container when depresed water trickles out, component that opens the x when water container placed, also ran wate

There is either a blockage or a pipe is open somewhere. You should check the system at the wall valve without the hose to determine if the pipes are blocked or if perhaps the hose is plugged. If one of the wall valves is damaged or open, this will af ... Vacuums

Hi: My DC14 (not animal version) has 3 major cracks that have pretty much killed the thing. There are three 'columns' that run down from the handle to the base. From the back, the left one has either the intake or outflow for the canister and the right one has the reverse. The middle one is where the base of the extension hose and cord is mounted. On all three the plastic has cracked at about the point where the bottom of the canister meets the permafilter. The vacuum is useless now and
