Diagnosing the problem with my bissell quicksteamer plus upright

I was shampooing yesterday when i noticed smoke coming from the base of our bissell quicksteamer upright and so i immediately pulled the plug. i then proceeded to clean out all of the filters which were a little dirty but not enough to cause my machine to start smoking so being cautious I examined it carefully that it when i discovered about an inch of copper wiring cable exposed with no insulation covering it. also i was putting quite a bit of pressure on the machine to vacuum up the water because we have the over priced overrated berber of course. can you please help me troubleshoot the problem because i really love my little bissell its been the most reliable die hard of a shampooer i have had! thanks

Was the exposed copper wiring on the electrical cord? If is then replace the cord. The main problem with this model is that Bissell obsoleted it as well as parts for it. But if all you need is a cord, you should be able to get one from a repair shop.

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.

No suction


Bissell has made this model along with all of the older cleaners obsolete along with the parts for them. I would buy new.
