Question about Bissell Vacuums
My Bissell 1870E will not work. Only used a few times. Last time burning smell and hot. Power button does nothing. It's not the plug or fuse.
If the burning smell was like rubber burning it is probably the belt. If you only used it a few times I suggest bringing it back to place of purchase. A belt should not go after just a few times of use. Besides if anything is burning after just a few uses I would return it.

I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.
SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

SOURCE: Carpet not getting moist
Huh I had this issue. It was killing me only used it like six times then no water. I took this apart four times man. They told me it was the pump. I finally ripped it all the way down. It was the pump. But it was the black connector on the main motor. Which runs the pump it came loose. I pressed it back on problem solved. Make sure you crimp it a bit. so it does not vibrate off again. Hope this helps.
