The filters may be clogged causing the motor to run fast which is causing the motor to get too hot..make sure you don't have any clogs anywhere like your hoses or at the bottom

Water spray not functioning for hose or carpet. I purchased this about 3 weeks a go. The spray work for about 20 mins then stopped. Is there are reset? I have tried turing off and on etc. Wendy...


Wendy,
I have the same model Bissell as you and this is going to sound silly....
The spray tank runs out of solution allot faster than you would expect it to. Remove the tank, dump out all the used stuff, and refill your solution tank.
You never know that it is empty until you dump out the waste tank! 20 minutes sounds about right for a full solution tank to run dry.
Good Luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

My fusion just stopped. i was vaccuuming and it


One item to check is this: This unit has a temperature overheat device.
Unplug the unit for 20 minutes, then plug in and turn on the switch. If there was a blockage in the hose/cup/filters, this could cause the overheating.

If this does not resolve the problem, it will need disassembled and checked with a continuity meter to determine the component that failed (motor, switch, cord, or TCO)

There is actually an internal fuse in the vacuum. You may have blown this. The circuit board connected to the ON/OFF touch pad may be bad too but probably unlikely. There is also an overheat sensor that trips the vacuum off when it gets too hot. This could be bad preventing it from coming on too. All of these solutions, require you to open the vacuum to fix.

Motor and Lights stopped suddenly after vacuuming...
Posted by Brigham81 on Jul 05, 2008
I was vacuuming the stairs, and all of a sudden the light went out and the motor stopped. Is it possible to overheat it, or blow a fuse? Thanks, Brigham

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Oreck XL2200 Bagged Upright Vacuum. It sounds to me that when the lights go out and it stops working that the motor is bad that you would have to replace the motor. It is still cheaper to replace the motor than to purchase a new vacuum. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Vacuumstps working


there is an overheat stat which cuts out motor if insufficient air flow. there must be a blockage you hav'nt found - probably in the air path from the brush roll to the fan
