Not much information to go on, but I'll suggest a few things to check. First thing to suspect is the switch wiring, in case you had to rewire it for some reason. Next thing would be a bad or broken switch (they can break internally, and you can usually feel it being loose or stuck). Next thing, since I assume you took it apart to change out the motor, would be a pinched or pulled-loose wire, when you reassembled it. You're going to have to figure out which switches control the floor settings, and also the floor attachment "trigger switch"- actually, it could be your whole problem.
Not an easy thing to figure out, but if you study the situation a bit, and have a volt/ohm meter to check out the switches, you should be able to fix it yourself, assuming you can get parts. That's another story, sometimes, depending on the age, make, etc. Good luck, and hope this helps you fix it!

Hi,
To be frank the reason may be many.. a personal evaluation can tell the exact reason... But still your motor won't work without floor attachment. SO there are the more chances of the short-circuit without the floor attachment, due to which it prevent the power to reach the motor...
Hope this has helped you.. Thanks...

Hello,

does the vacuum turn on when you connect it to electricity and does it give any sign current entering into it when you turn it on? Also did you test the new motor and are you sure it is well fixed?

I will like you to check if power is entering into the machine.

I look forward to your reply.

Bye for now.

A friend of mine has a bissell pro heat 2x, which wont vacuum back the water from the carpet on the main floor setting, the hose will spray and vaccuum back. how would i resolve this? if it is a matter of...


First check the motor duct gasket. The motor duct gasket is visible once the tank is removed. It is located underneath the handle on the top of the base of the machine. It has a black rubber coating around it. If there is no suction there please let us know. If your machine does have suction at the duct, continue to check the following:


- Ensure the Ready Tools Dial is set to the appropriate setting (Floor Cleaning or Hose Attachments).
- Remove the tank from the machine and ensure the tank lid is attached properly. The front window must first hook onto the lip of the bottom of the tank and then drape over the tank. Latch the bottom tank to the top tank lid. THIS LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE TANK IS NOT REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE.
- Make sure the Water Tank is not full on the outside of the bladder. If it is, empty the tank.
- Ensure the hose is firmly attached to the back of the machine. If not, re-insert as necessary by twisting into place.
- The machine must be in an upright, locked position and set to the Hose Attachment setting. If the handle is slightly tilted back while using, it will create a small gap at the suction inlet (where handle meets gasket, above the Bottom Tank) which will cause little or no suction.
- Check the red Tank Lint Screen for debris. If the Lint Screen is dirty, the unit will have poor suction. Clean the Lint Screen if necessary.
- If the float flap door in the tank lid is activating prematurely when you turn the machine on, this flap door should be replaced. This tank may need to be emptied.
- Check the Tank Lid and Tank for damage.

The brushes wont turn,but it has good suction for the hose


you have to remove the bottom cover to inspect the belt. Usually if the brush is jammed, you will smell an odor similar to burning rubber. In the absence of that smell, its likely the belt. Its easy to replace

I wentto WalMart and a sales rep showed me how the machine works. I had already attached the curtain extension back in the proper place ont the machine. This action automatically returned the suction to the floor.

Smells like the motor is burning. observing sparks. It the motor cooked and is it just time for a replacement?


If you're observing sparks, then yes, just get a new one. With the low prices of good vaccuums its not worth starting a fire with your vaccuum. If it just smells like the motor is burning, check the belt and make sure its rotating freely and if you have an attachment, make sure the brush on the vaccuum is not being stopped while using the attachment. However, if you are seeing sparks,,,, definately time to junk it

AC is not working on driver's side.Passenger side is cooling as it should. Any help is appreciated.


I would suspect there is a blend door under the dash that's not working. Similar to a register in your house, when you switch to A/C, either a vaccuum dash pot or a servo motor opens and closes a series of blend doors to re-direct the air from the fan to where you want it. There are a lot of possibilities here, but if you can lay on the floor and trace back the duct to the Plenum. At the plenum is where the door (valve) will be located.Check to see if it's trying to operate when you switch from floor heat to A/C. You may be able to find the problem. If it's vaccuum operated, pull off the hose and see if it has suction. It may just be a blown dash pot. Give me more info and I can help you more.

2001 jeep tj, heater selecter switch changes on it's own,


I'm not sure if this applies to your vehicle but often a vaccuum reserve tank is used in the system to eliminate this problem. If you have one, make sure it's not leaking. If you don't and were supposed to, someone may have removed it. There also may be a check valve in the line somewhere that is malfunctioning. This used to happen on older vehicles with vaccuum wipers. They would almost stop when going uphill. It's the same thing, just on a different system! Could also be a slight bleed-off from a plenum door motor that is not bad enough to not work, but just enough to react to low vaccuum caused naturally when engine is working hard.

Emptying the water from the Shop Vac 925-13 Canister Wet/Dry Vacuum


Stand in front of the vaccuum with the lable facing you, the 2 release levers are on the left and right sides, attached to the motor housing, which sits atop the tank/canister. Pull out and up on the levers, twist counter-clockwise, lift straight up and the motor housing will follow, leaving the tank/canister on the floor.
