    I was using the vacuum and everything had been working fine, it was time to change the water and add more cleaning solution, so I turned it off and emptied the dirty water. I filled up the water container with clean, hot water and filled the the cleaning solution container. I installed like I have a hundred times before and the indicator wasn't spinning nor was any cleaning solution coming out.



    Please help - I really love my PowerSteamer Vacuum and need to use it very soon !!!

Mine does that, too. Pushing down and wiggling the tank usually gets it going. Also, it doesn't seem to work when the soap bottle is low, even when the soap is turned off. I fill the bottle with water. It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged. Some people say the heating unit in the handle plugs up, particularly if you put soap in the water tank. I haven't dealt with this, but it should be easy to open the handle and bypass the heating unit.

Bissell instruction manuals


The instructions tell you to clean filters after each use. Check the User's Guide for specifics. Quick guide though. Water tank Cap: Under the cap is filter (looks like a screen) remove, clean, replace. Locate the Flow Indicator: turn it counter-clockwise to remove the cap. Lift out the rotor and the filter underneath, Clean and reinstall in reverse order. That should fix the problem. Consumer Care phone number is listed in the User's Guide.

Why isn't the soap coming out of the despencer


Check dispenser seating, turn off unit, unplug unit. Reseat dispenser, plug in unit, turn unit on, wait one minute, press sprayer to test. While your at it clean the two filters. The filters need to be cleaned after each use. One is located under the Water Tank Cap and the other is under the Flow Indicator. Bissell Consumer Care 1-800-237-7691

The belt has broken and needs replaced. bissell uses a belt driven pump. ther ar two belts, one for the brush, and one for the pump. all can be replaced through the belt access on the left hand side of the machine.
