Question about Bissell Powersteamer 1694 Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

Won't extract water from carpet.

I have a Bissell Quicksteamer, the model number on the back of it is 1950-W. The only problem I'm having is it won't extract the water from the carpet. It was working fine the last time I used it. I even took it apart and cleaned all the parts. Still no suction. Please help!

Seems the 1950W is now obsolete, cna't even bring up a drawing of it. Usually when the vac. motor is running, then there has to be suction. But if a seal or gaske is missing, then the suction will be lost. So you might check the dirty water tank to make sure there isn't a part missing or out of place. Check this out, it is for a 1950-3:

Instruction to put it together


Bissell has the assembly instructions in the manual for the unit. Most Bissell manuals are available here: http://www.bissell.com/user-guides/ . The direct link to the manual for 1950 series Quick Steamer is http://www.bissell.com/user-guides/DownloadAsset.aspx?id=567 .

I hope this helps. Out of the box, the assembly is very simple. Put the handle on the lower body and secure with a Philips screw. The water tanks lift off and then get placed back on the body of the unit. (Use care when the tanks are filled with water.) See the manual for adding the bare floor tool.

I have a Bissell Quicksteamer plus model # 1950 and when I plug it in it begins to heat the water then trips the circuit. Can this issue be corrected?


Have you cleaned the tanks recently? If not do it.
Remove water from the solution tank and collection tank.
Keep the tanks open and allow to dry in sunlight.
If you can, remove the solution tank and see whether there are any leakage signs where the tube connects to the solution tank. If there are, use an adhesive that can withstand heat and stops the leak.
You can also contact Bissell consumer service on 1-800-237-7691.

Where can i order a quicksteamer plus 1950 clean water tank?


I had a look at the Australian variant of this model and located parts number 407-0931 Clean Water Tank.

My best suggestion is that take this part number and contact your local Bissell Service Center, go to the Bissell International website to locate information for your country.

Cleaning


Either you have a pinched or clogged water line, or the rod in the handle is pushing down like it should. The drw back is Bissell has deemed this unit and its parts obsolete. So any parts are hard to find.
