SOURCE: vax rapide not realising water

I have just managed to fix the problem i had with my vax rapide not releasing water. I also tried tilting it and that did not work. I unscrewed the brush from the base of the carpet washer and there is a black plastic strip with holes in where the water comes out of and onto the carpet. I used a needle to unblock these tiny holes which had become blocked after the last use. I now have it working again.

SOURCE: My Vax rapide is not sucking up water?

I had the same problem. Then I took off the brushbar (it's underneath at the front). It just pops off. Then it worked fine. I guess you only need it for long carpets.

Greetings,

A few more things that you can try on your SteamVac. First remove the dirty water solution tank from the machine completely. You should see where the solution tank was just sitting, a plastic casing with a whole in it. This is actually where the suction from the motor goes into. Turn the machine on and feel the hole there for any suction coming out. Did you feel suction coming from the hole? If yes, then your issue is going to be something with the dirty solution tank, because without the tank it's sucking fine. If you didn't feel any suction from this hole, it may indicate that there is something more serious that needs to be taken care of.

One other place you may look on your machine (as long as the upholstery hose for stairs and furniture is already attached to the machine, and you don't have to hook anything up to the dirty water tank to use the attachments) while the dirty solution tank is out of it, is where the attachment hose makes connection with the vacuum. If you recline the handle down while you have the dirty water tank out, look in the back of the handle housing for a hose that enters the housing 3/4 down the housing. Now follow the hose on the inside of the handle not the outside, follow it up to the point where it goes into the neck, near where the suction hole is. Right at the end of the hose, right before the hose cuff, is this ripped, or damaged here?

Please feel free to request a clarification to this repair if you still need addtional help. If you can leave me the model number exactly that would help me help you, lol. I hope that this was helpful to you. If this was helpful to you, may you please click the helpful Thumbs Up Icon in the lower right hand corner of this repair?

Thank you so much,

Chris J.

How can I clean or open the bissell quicksteamer dirty tank


Hi Deni! The collection tank can not be opened for cleaning. You may want to fill the tank with some hot tap water and let it sit for about 30 miutes.

Here's a link to our website if you decide to order a new tank.
