Question about Bissell 1697-7 Powersteamer Pro Deluxe Vacuum
This machine is only a few yrs old . And only used a few times. There was no water or solution coming out. So I cleaned all the filters and blew air from my compressor trough everything .I put it back together and after a few minutes it worked. I finished what I was doing and tried it the next day but nothing again. I took out the pump and submersed it in water until it was full . Plugged the ends where the lines went on . And reinstalled pump . I turned it on but nothing happened . I noticed some air bubbles in the line by the belt. I also noticed an air pocket in the line . I also took the line off the side by the belt while it was on but no water came out. is there air in the system .? Or is the pump bad . Is water supposed to come out that line while it is on.? The solution spinner doesn"t work either
You are going to want to replace the water pump on the machine. Also you might want to look into replacing the belt that runs it. If that still des not working, you probably have a clog in the hose coming form the heater element. This is VERY common with the Bissells. Good Luck!
