My Bissell Dirtlifter Powerbrush carpet cleaner will not roll. The back wheels roll fine, but when you put the machine down flat, the front part (where the roller is) sticks and will not roll.

I had the same problem. It would pull backwards but not go forward. A closer examination revealed the clear plastic part on the bottom in the very front of the machine had popped loose on one side.
If you look at the front of the machine, there is the clear plastic part on top where you see the dirty water being sucked up. The bottom half that creates the channel for the vacuum is where it came loose. It wouldn't create enough suction to draw the water up either. By taking out the two screws that hold the top part in place and removing it, I was able to snap the bottom back in. Works fine now. Hope this helps.

How do you prepare the driftlifter powerbrush for operation? What kind of cleaner should I use? How do I put it in the machine?


Don't use the Bissell, Hoover or Dirt devil cleaner products in your machine. They are a petrolium based and will eventually gum up the machine. Use an alcohol based product put out by Riccar. It dries faster and won't leave a sticky residue in your carpet.

My bissell powerbrush won't **** up the water


had same problem - carpet soaked with dirty water and very little, if any, cleaning fluid used. Easily remedied. Removed water resevoir and found that the rectangular shaped washer at the top of the front cover (the bit you had unscrewed to give a good clean) had become dislodged. It has small lugs on either size which lock on to the plastic opening when pushed down firmly. Resevoir then sits on top and makes full connection, also ensure that grey locking handle is fully pushed down.

Seemed to me that the water wasn't being sucked up as there was air getting in and this has down the trick. Sorry if this is difficult to follow but all will become clear when you look for the black washer! Good luck

How to change the belt on a bissell powerbrush deep carpet cleaner.model 1694


Turn the machine OFF (O) and unplug from
the outlet. To check if the brush belt or
pump belt has broken, you will need a flat
head screwdriver. Insert the blade end into
the lower slot of the belt access door to
release the lower snap. If necessary, insert
the blade end into the upper slot to release
the upper snap.

Hope this helps.
