Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a bissell quickwash 1950-e. I bought it Jan. 2006, and have only used it 8-10 times, I live in a very hard water area, so I though if I put some vinegar in with the cleaning solution it would get rid of any hard water deposits, unfortunatly the solution went lumpy in the tank and stoped spraying out water, I have opened it, hose clean, sprayer not blocked, x at bottom of water container when depresed water trickles out, component that opens the x when water container placed, also ran water through when run under water. Assembled altogether again, still will not spray water, suction working.

Hard to say what is causing your problem, replacing the cap and insert on the water tank may help, part #2041111, even tho it may trickle out water when depressed, they can still be bad. The other thing would be the rod not relesing the water like it should. The big draw back to this model is Bissell has obsoleted all of its parts and most are no longer available. Might be wiser to buy new.

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.

Bissell quickwash 1970E for carpets/hard floors won't come on


If the burning smell was like rubber burning it is probably the belt. If you only used it a few times I suggest bringing it back to place of purchase. A belt should not go after just a few times of use. Besides if anything is burning after just a few uses I would return it.

When i turn it on the motor makes laud noise


Mine did too. Eventually it started smoking and spat-out dust from the dead motor.

I wish I had looked at the motor and added some vaseline or something before in conked-out completely.

I think the problem was that I was not spraying water enough and so running the machine more as a dry vacuum. Maybe this allowed the motor to spin too fast and over head. Or something.

New motors are available but cost nearly as much as a second hand quicksteamer / quickwash.

the pump belt is off or broken, sometimes when you put too much soap or cleaner in device the belt will slide off the end of the roller, use pinesol to clean this works and doesn't do that, not too much cleaner.

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.

Won't extract water from carpet.


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:
