NO SUCTION FROM MAIN PART OF VACUUM. THERE IS SUCTION FROM THE WAND


You have a clog in the hose that goes from the head up to the intake of the cylider. Most likely right as it leaves the beater head.

1. Turn the unit on its side so that you can see inside the beater head. You will see funnel shaped opening that then goes to a hose. This hose then take the debris to the top of the cylinder. The clog is before the the area where the wand hose heads up to the top.

2. Remove the short hose in the head and shake it out to remove the debris. Do this in an area where dust wont be an issue. There is likely a small rigid item blocking it at an angle that will cause dirt to build up. Make sure this gets removed or you will have the same problem again.

3. Reinstall the hose as it was before.

4. Test to make sure it all works

Why has air suction pressure has dropped off to almost no suction? Filter cleaning did not help.


Do any of the ports have greater suction than others and are they closer to the vacuum motor unit? You appear to have a piping clog and locating it's position is the primary problem. If you have a portable vacuum, try placing it's hose in the exhaust port of the main unit and insert the pickup hose in a wall port near the main vacuum so that both units are on. The combined suction may pull the clog loose and draw it into the filter of the main unit. The other remedy is to remove the piping from the main unit and see if suction is good at that point, then work your way out to the nearest wall port. Hope some of this helps!

Water doesn't circulate from the tank to the rug


Have you checked for the sprayer nozzles under the clear vacuum housing are not plugged with some foreign debris, carpet fibre buildup etc. Place the unit on bare floor and engage/turn on the motor/pump and pull the trigger/switch? No water? Check also that the hose/attachment wands have water or not? If they are operating then the nozzles to the carpet off the main unit may need to be cleared by using a pin (Safely) se if there is no foreign debris in sprayer nozzle. I have seen soap solution gone crystalized and the minute pieces clog up the on board prefilter and yet somehow clogs the nozzles as well. you may have to take the top of the unit off (approx. 6 screws) and see if there is water flow or maybe a kink in water /sprayer/nozzle line. Good luck

Powerwash Powerbrush machine not sucking


It might be clogged, but you would be able to see the clog through the clearview water suction area. There are a couple areas to check:
1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet.
2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.

I have a Bissell pro heat water will not disperse from


If the red spray pieces are not clogged but the Bissell still will not dispense water, then I would say the next most likely causes of your issue was either no soap in the tank, or a burnt out water pump. But since you can get water through the tools, I don't see how that's possible. I think it's still the sprayers. When you say you stuck a needle in the eye holes of the two red spray pieces, did you actually take the two red spray pieces off the hoses to do this? And then after pushing through a needle, did you try blowing through the red spray pieces? If you can't blow air through them, they're still clogged and water won't go through, either. Here's how to get the red spray pieces off the Bissell: Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water tank pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your roller brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle, and tend to clog with mineral deposits. Only work on one sprayer at a time so you can see how it goes back together. As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, push up on the underside of the sprayer from underneath the bottom unit of the Bissell to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Clean any lint or debris out of the mount area. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush. Now you need to remove one water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip up the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. (See GOTCHA about the spring, below.) With the clip released, now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care. When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the end of the red water sprayer that was inside the hose in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. If you can't blow air through it, it's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the hose end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Click the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell. Now do the same for the other red water sprayer. The GOTCHA: Once when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. It?s best to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, fix this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (this is the surface the water tank mounts on top of), and pry it up. Pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers on the hose, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base. You might want to prime the pumps. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine (even a new one) keeps water from flowing, until you reprime the Bissell's internal pumps. To prime the pumps the easy way, turn it on, then press, hold, and release the water-and-soap trigger a few times, waiting a few seconds each time. Still nothing? Prime it the slightly harder way. Separate the two water tank pieces. Only have the base tank filled and mounted on the Bissell without the piece that sits atop the tank. Turn it on. Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel just a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times, a few seconds apart. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Thoroughly rinse out and empty both water tank pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and get all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and needs more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it?? Good luck!

Whill not dispense liquid


There is a panel on the side for belt access, open this and inspect your belt. Usually replacing the rubber belt will fix this problem, as the belt from the main motor is what drives the water pump unit. (The cogged belt in the front is what drives the brushroll, but if the rubber belt isn't functioning properly the brushes generally won't turn either.)
If the rubber belt seems ok and the brushes are turning either you have soap clogging the lines, or your pump has gone bad.

Flushing out the water lines can help clear a soap clog, but to effectively do it requires disassembly of the lower chassis. Both this procedure and pump replacements in these units are a nightmare because all of the rubber hoses running around in the machine have a tendency to get pinched closed on reassembly, so if you do disassemble your unit, be very careful to align all of the hoses so that they are not crimped upon reassembly.

My Hoover FloorMate 801 will not pick up water after the floor has been moped. The filter is clean.


Check the inspection hoses - especially the hose from the floor head to the main water tank - sounds like there is a clogged piece of dirt getting in the way as well as the main floor brush.

Either the filters are clogged, the hose has a clog in it, or the dirt inlet down by the brush roll is clogged. Pull the hose off and see if you have suction at the end of the hose, that will tell you which way to look for a clog.
