Question about Bissell 1697-7 Powersteamer Pro Deluxe Vacuum

1 Answer

Model 1697.m Bissell carpet cleaner.

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

Thanks Keith

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!

Water doesn't come out of my Bissel Deep Cleaner


Did you use TAP water...not a good idea.Use de-mineralized water you can get at most pharmacies,there is probably mineral buildup in the lines.

My Bissell carpet cleaner model #1697-W will not dispense the cleaning solution and will not **** the water back up--also need to know how you get to the belt on the machine?


The drive belt for the pump is located under a cover on the front right side as you look for the front of the machine. Just lift it up and the belt will be obvious. If it is not sucking then make sure that the dirty water tank is empty and that all the filters are clean and the front of the machine is not clogged with fibres, dirt or hair. Also check pre and post motor filters and clean them if required. Then check the mix control is working OK to allow fluid to flow out of the machine and not switched off. Bissell's are simple machines.

Not working


The bissell shampooers use belts t run the pump and the beater bar. if the master beltbroke which is the one that controls the pump and beater bar then yes the machine will not dispense water or turn the beater bar. it will have to be replaced *the belt that is*

Not putting out water


I had the same problem with mine and it was an easy fix. If you remove the soap holder without putting the selector dial to "water only" you will lose the prime in the hose that goes to the water chamber. It takes a few minutes of pulling the water trigger to regain that prime, but it will come back eventually. Easiest fix, of course, is to always remember to dial to water only when you need to add cleaning solution..
