I have a Bissell powersteamer powerbrush 5 cleaning rows dirtlifter powerbrush brush turns but is dry and red filter on tank is dry as well and its making a noise apparently no water is being sprayed

It says bissell power steamer power brush 5 cleaning rows dirt lifter power brush on it brush turns but is dry and red filter on tank is dry as well and its making a noise apparently no water is being sprayed on brush because brush is dry as well but the suction seems to be working. The cylinder that comes up from the motor and has rubber piece on it and tank connect there's no water coming through it. It was working fine then I had vacuumed over a spot that was soapy/foamy from a different pre spotting cleaner on it and all this foam was coming through and then I rinsed it out and refilled tank and that's when I heard the noise and its loud and it didn't work anymore. Help me please I borrowed it from my mother and now its not working shes going be very angry. I cant take it back broken because I don't have money to replace it.

SOURCE: Water will not come out to do floor work

HI, I have a very similar Bissell. My problem was that after unscrewing the top plate and looking at the pipes the pipes feeding the front sprays were full of gunge blocking the sprayheads. I managed to flush it through by carefully removing the T connector that feeds the front 2 pipes, placing it back so it stuck out of one of the holes and replacing the water tank and turning on while holding it over a bucket. Black and white bits came out but it did flush through. I am thinking of doing a youtube video - let me know if this will help you!

ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

SOURCE: My bissell Powerbrush cleaner quit working. The

found it from Tara put online in nov 2008 Thanks this is it

Had the same problem... although I don't have particularly hard water, the heater block corroded just enough to stop most of the flow after about 4 years. Disassemble the handle to get at the heater block (3 pairs of screws/bolts), remove the tubes with needle nose pliers, use a paper clip to knock out the corrosion on the front tube on the heater block, flush with a syringe to get rid of any other bits of corrosion (some extra plastic tubing connected to the back tube of the heater block helps here, and catch the water from the front tube to prevent water in the electronics...), reassemble (avoid disconnecting any wires...) and try it out. Worked for me! I REALLY have to thank the person who suggested this fix! THANKS!!!

I used regular pliers , phillips screwdriver , the pointed end of a compass and a turkey baster full of water to blast it out . You have to improvise . Take your time watch the little rubbers on the heater make sure its not hot . It was just the inlet gets pluged up in the heater . You have to take off the tools then its the bottom set of plastic not the handle . You can test by pushing the plunger at the top . You must take the handle off . Loosen the pieces it just came off for me then snaps back on . This is all it was for me , very simple . I am disabled and did it on a extra old carpet a little at a time over a few hours . For someone healthy its a hour job tops or less . Just be patient . God helps those who help themeslves and asks for patience .

My Bissell will not spray water out on the floor but the hand tool works fine. Need some advice on what to check


First check fluid levels. Check Bladder level is full and Heater tank level. Sounds silly but you never know
1. Check the tank seating. If the tanks aren't seated corrected they won't work correctly. Turn off and unplug unit. Remove tanks and reinstall them.
2. Check filter. It may be clogged. This is the "FLOW INDICATOR". Remove the cap and rotor. The filter is just below the rotor and cleans by back flushing. CAUTION: don't drop it down the drain.
3. Check pump belt. Belt can break and cause the problem. Turn off unit. Turn unit back on and check too see the DirtLifter PowerBrush turns. Refer to NOTE below if brush doesn't turn.
4. Reprime pump. Loss of prime can happen if fluid levels are low. Turn unit off for 1 minute then turn unit on and press the trigger.

For all checks it is best to turn unit off and unplug it. NEVER USE ELECTRICITY WITH FLUIDS.
BROKEN BELT: Turn the machine off and unplug it. Move it to a dry area. You will need a flat head screwdriver.
NOTE:
Insert screwdriver into the lower slot of the belt access door to release the lower snap (on left side of unit as you are looking from the front about an inch up behind the adjustment knob) If necessary insert the blade end into the upper slot to release the upper snap. Examine the belt for breakage. If broken, refer to your User Guide for replacement parts. Installation instructions will accompany the replacement.

I don't have any suction with my bissell dirtlifter powerbrush...how can i fix it?


Check the Water Tank Filter on the cap of the tank (it looks like a screen) If clogged then the tank holds air and can't suck up water. You may want to check your User's Guide to see if there are any other filters that may need cleaning after each use. Hope that helps. If not Bissell has a Consumer Care service at 1-800-237-7691

Water won't come out


Hi there SmartAlec from nelsonvacuums.com.au here. I think that the likely solution for the problem is that the water tank is slightly warped and so will not seal properly. Normally this is caused by using hot water in the tank. It should still be covered under warranty though just take it back to the dealer and get them to check it.

hi,

theres a small red filter in the head of the machine that gets clogged with hair and the machine wont draw as good, you have to find that and keep it cleaned out. FYI also-if you have pets you have to stop every few rows and check the floating bar mechanisms keep them free of hair or they will overheat the bearings and snap belts and eventually melt the bearings into the brush bar..

good luck
