Question about Bissell 1693 PowerSteamer Upright Vacuum
My bissell powersteamer model 1693 is not sucking up water from carpet. Hand held seems to have good suction. Everything was taken apart and cleaned, still not working.
I have the bissel power steamer / powerbrush # on front at bottom 310-3150 bought in october used it 2 times 3rd time it started acting up as follows
cleaned all parts. the spin dial wont spin. the switches on both steamer and hand wand won't spray. Sometimes works then stops. Water comes out the bottom when sitting. All parts look fine no damages.

Ck. the plastic flapper under the Floor Nozzle Window and make sure it is completely closed when the Floor Cleaning/Tools Preheat Dial is in the Floor Cleaning setting. If this flapper is open or partially open, the suction vacuum will draw from the hand tool and not the floor.

Put the handle all the way down to the floor, and closely inspect the pickup hoses now visible at the hinge. These models have a design flaw in the corregated pickup tube. One is for the floor, and one is for the wand. Chances are the floor tube has a big slice in it.
You can order the part online, however disassembly is tough! The tube is about $35.00
