Have taken Vax to repair shop. Not easy to do at home, unless a qualified mechanic. The motor has to be taken apart.

Central vac not sucking


Check for a plugged tube in the wall by listening to the motor when it's running. If it sounds like it's running too fast then there's an obstruction. If it sounds ok, then there's a disconnected tube somewhere in the system.

Making a loud noise and not picking up


Not picking up? Usually caused by a clogged vacuum line/filter or full bag. First, check your filters/bag for capacity. Next, inspect the ribbed hose. If it's heavier than normal, your clog is probably in there. You can clear it by gently squeezing to find the foreign body that has likely become wedged into the ribbing, and while squeezing, apply a twist to dislodged it from the ribs. Then shake it gently to allow the clog to fall out into a dust pan or trash can. If the hose is lite, it's likely a foreign body lodged into the tube of the lower housing where the wheel brush forces it up the curved tube with the air vacuum before it reaches the flexible hose. You should be able to clear this by disconnecting the hose from the lower housing, possibly removing a lower faceplate from the wheel brush area, and fish a coat hanger or other flexible but rigid object through the tube to dislodge the debris.

When taking the handle/wand back to use it seems to lose the suction power regardless of what setting I use. Upon several times of standing it back up it seems to engage the suction power correctly is...


When you say taking handle back I assume you mean the action to start rotation of brushes. Had simular problem and found by removing brush from tube and then cleaning "baked on rubbish" in plastic tube (so you can see clearly through tube) Clean with stiff brush and also making sure brush drive belt housing is also clean and allows brush to rotate square to housing did improve the suction power.
I assume you have cleaned all filters by wahing under running water and applying a little pressure to remove water and attached dirt?

I CANT GET MY BISSELL SPOTLIFTER MODEL 1716 TO SPRAY THE SOLUTION.


1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.

2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger

repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot

squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the

machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an

internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing

the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.

3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the

side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the

Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.

4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on

the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts

can be found at www.bissell.com

5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger

with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog

spray tip with a pin or paper clip.

If still no spray, please check the following:

a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.

b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.

Vax Carpet shampooer V - 027CC. water not coming through when trigger pressed. Bottle is filled.


Check that the outlet bung at the bottom of the bottle is not jammed closed or that the operating rod from the trigger has not become dislodged. It is best to remove the bottle from the machine to do this.

The water and soap are not coming out of the cleaner. It is heating and pulling air back through.


Related issue: In general, if plain water is not run through the system (and drained out!) after each use, the water can leave "boiler scale" in small inlet and/or outlet tubes on the heater (up inside the handle). If it fills the inlet/outlet tube, this will stop ALL water flow, even if you're not using the 'heat' function, because the water goes through the heater whether the heater is on or off. I was able to get the flow going by digging out the corrosion from inside the inlet/outlet tubes on the heater where the clear, plastic, inlet and outlet hoses attach. It's been working fine for a few years since the fix.

Refer to the discussion at the other thread: http://www.fixya.com/support/t3309646-pump_motor_sounds_like_running_but_not

You will need to remove the top domed lid to access the working parts. Refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t3543424-two_top_sections_held_together

Examine the water lines to ensure they are attached to the pump. If you feel you can do so without shocking yourself on any exposed electrical connectors, try disconnecting the inlet hose. Buy a two-foot section of the same size hose from the hardware store and connect it to the pump inlet. Plug in2_bing.gif the unit (be careful!!!) and use the pump switch to see if it draws water. Then try reconnecting the inlet and connect the outlet to the new hose to see if the pump pulls water from through its suction tube and will pump through the new hose.

Pump motor sounds like it is running but is not pumping


The pumps in these machines are very simple and there's almost nothing to go wrong. If the problem is actually in the pump, the most likely thing is that there's something stuck in one of the valves, but this is unlikely as long as you've got an undamaged filter on the intake tube in the clean water tank. More likely is that the diode has failed in the live wire supplying the pump. The function of the diode is to act as an electrical one-way valve, and if it fails the pump will sound like it's working but it won't shift any water. I don't know of an easy way to check the diode, but replacing the pump lead-wires should be cheap. If that doesn't solve the problem, fit a new pump (they're not expensive).
Good luck! Please remember to rate this response, thanks.

Pump runs but won't pick up solution from tank


I have the same problem. Pump runs a little sluggish but water does go up the siphon tube.
