Pump needs replacing


I have the Bissell Big Green model 1672 and have used it for many years. Recently, the fan or suction blower began to emit a burnt smell so I shut it off. I had difficulty figuring out how to dissemble the top motor unit. Here is what I found.

Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

Now, beneath the air outlet is the rest of the motor unit. The motor unit consists of three pieces. The bottom piece is the lid to the waste water receptacle. It is concave pointing down (lid shaped). The top piece is the domed lid for the motor unit. The middle piece is a flat plate between the other two pieces. The top of the flat plate (inside the unit) has mountings for the suction fan and the pump.

The flat plate is bolted to the bottom piece and the top piece (domed lid) is simply snapped down to the flat plate. If you take a flashlight and look inside the area where the AC cord is stored, you can see that the domed lid is a distinct piece from the flat plate. The model 1672 and 1680 (or 1680-3 if you wish) are nearly identilcal.

To access the internal parts in the motor unit, you cannot pry between bottom piece and the the flat plate because they are bolted together. But you can remove the top domed lid. To remove the domed lid, position the motor unit in front of you with the switches at 9 o-clock. Three snap-downs which attach the domed lid to the flat plate are at 1 o'clock, 2:30, and 7 o'clock. Wedge a flat bladed screwdriver or pocketknife between the edge of the domed lid and the flat plate at those locations and the lever the domed lid out and then up. The domed lid will separate from the bolted-together flat plate and bottom piece.

Wiring from the switches remain attached to to the electrical components. You will see that the AC cord has white, black, and green wires. The green ground wire connects to the fan ground at the 9 o'clock position. The white power connects to upper connector on the pump and also to the fan at the 7:30 position. Black feeds both switches on model 1672 and then a black wire runs from the correct switch to the bottom connector on the pump or to the connector on the fan at the 1:30 position.

Model 1680 has a third switch which feeds power to the floor sweeper. It has its own connection to the green ground and white power and goes through the third switch to connect to black.

If you need to replace the pump or the fan, shop around carefully. The pump, for example, can be found for $30 plus shipping2_bing.gif, but some will want to charge you $80.

Just bought from garage sale: Circuit tested with meter, and seems intact; however no power to vacuum unit when switched on. Pump unit works ok.


You'll need to open up the top motor unit, check the switch for the suction and test the fan itself. My model 1672 ran for many years, but recently it started to smell burnt when the fan was on. When I opened it up, you could see the fan spitting out sparks. I suspect the brushes are gone.

Here are instructions for opening up the motor unit. Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

Now, beneath the air outlet is the rest of the motor unit. The motor unit consists of three pieces. The bottom piece is the lid to the waste water receptacle. It is concave pointing down (lid shaped). The top piece is the domed lid for the motor unit. The middle piece is a flat plate between the other two pieces.

Pump will not run


You will need to disassemble the top motor unit and try putting power directly to the pump. The switch may be bad, the connections may be dislodged, or you may need to replace the pump. I am reading your question and I assume that you cannot hear the pump kick on (low thrumming sound).

Here is how to disassemble the motor unit. Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

It is concave pointing down (lid shaped). The top piece is the domed lid for the motor unit. The middle piece is a flat plate between the other two pieces. The top of the flat plate (inside the unit) has mountings for the suction fan and the pump.

The flat plate is bolted to the bottom piece and the top piece (domed lid) is simply snapped down to the flat plate. If you take a flashlight and look inside the area where the AC cord is stored, you can see that the domed lid is a distinct piece from the flat plate. The model 1672 and 1680 (or 1680-3 if you wish) are nearly identilcal.

To access the internal parts in the motor unit, you cannot pry between bottom piece and the the flat plate because they are bolted together. But you can remove the top domed lid. To remove the domed lid, position the motor unit in front of you with the switches at 9 o-clock. Three snap-downs which attach the domed lid to the flat plate are at 1 o'clock, 2:30, and 7 o'clock. Wedge a flat bladed screwdriver or pocketknife between the edge of the domed lid and the flat plate at those locations and the lever the domed lid out and then up. The domed lid will separate from the bolted-together flat plate and bottom piece.

The color piece comes off with the dome on the end of the ear piece. Having purchased a CENTRA Active hearing aid only 18 months ago they have now broken, 5 times requiring a new piece


Hello KayMike,

If the dome on the end of the ear piece is a wax guard type collector that must be opened and cleaned out and then closed. Or if it just the type that you brush away wax, then you must be very careful when handling this procedure?

If you are not comfortable in doing this, I would recommend you schedule an appointment with your provider to ask for refresher instructions and/or service to do this for you. Some instruments may be fitted with different styles of wax guards that may be easier for you to handle. If the color piece with the dome is not a wax guard please clarify you question.

Please advise if this addresses your problem. We hope it will be helpful and thanks for contacting FixYa.com.

Thane Q Grill


Hello,
I just read this post as I was surfing for the Q-Grill - which they don't make anymore according to their website, and I looked everywhere - Amazon, Ebay, etc. I'm looking to buy a second Q-Grill; the "Turbo" actually. My first one still works great! Anyways, I know it's almost a year for a response but if you're still having the issue (or if anyone is currently having this issue), that you stated regarding the "red" button under the dome light - I had the same problem after the first year of using my Q-Grill. The red cap (or button as you call it) cracked and the spring inside was popping through the crack. The red cap kept the pressure on the spring which was pressing the gas valve button to let the propane gas flow through the pipes. Its almost like a safety mechanism. Without the red cap on the spring, the gas valve button wouldn't be depressed, and no gas flow - Cold burgers! Yuck!....Any how, my solution was to place a thin, flat piece of wood like a very thin plywood; 1-1/2"(inch) by 1-1/2"(inch) and 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick over the cracked red cap, then I screwed down the dome light housing on top of the wood piece which rests on top of the red cap. The dome light housing now applies downward pressure to the wood piece, which applies pressure to the cracked red cap and the spring inside which is activating the gas valve button for gas flow. An alternate solution to using a piece of wood is using a piece of paper and folding it to make a small square (you may have to cut the piece of paper). And fold the piece of paper enough times to make it thick enough for the dome light housing to apply pressure once you screw it down.....I hope this helps you out.
