Did you try plugging it in more than one outlet? Perhaps you blew a fuse or tripped a breaker. Any safety breaker on the unit itself? Possibly a bad on/off switch.

I just bought a bissel pro heat 2x used and i cant get the water to come out after it is on


Hello There,
There are a number of things that cold cause no water is coming out.
-Fill up the clear water bladder, lift up and push the valve underneath to release some water (it should drip)
-place the water container on the carpet cleaner and make sure it sits properly. If you lift up the container it should see some water in the deep part of the base plate (where the valve is on the bottom of the container)
-turn on the the carpet cleaner (the vacuum motor should spinning) and push the spray button(check if water shows up)
-if not, listen to the for the sound of the pump motor (unfortunately the vacuum motor is already running so the noise level is high)
-if you can't tell, you need to open the base plate 9disconnect the power first) by removing the tank and unscrew the Phillips screws all around the base plate. When you lift it up carefully you will see a small 12 Volt DC motor, this is the pump. The motor have to receive 12 V to turn on. If the motor is running (checking the sound, measuring the voltage to it) the problem is the tubes are plugged. It can be anywhere from the nozzles, the filter on the base plate, the heater (if the bottom plate is lifted up it is easy to see). The heater is made by two pieces, removing the screws it can be opened up and cleaned.
If the motor is not running (no power to it, it can be the bridge rectifier or the 3.15 A fuse (embedded in the cable harness)

Good luck!

There are 2 tabs on the bottom front edge of the switch plate which slide under the metal top cover. Make sure these tabs have not gotten bent upward so they will not slide under the top cover. If they are bent, simply pry them open. Also, note that the handle pivot has a sliding latch on it to allow the handle to be fully lowered. To lower the handle flat, push the little knob inward.

The cord will need to be replaced with a cord made for the machine, as it has a non-standard plug. The cord cover is held in place with a # 20 Torx screw. Remove the screw and push the cover gently from behind to unlatch it. The handle must also be removed, along with the switch "scuff" plate. To remove the rear plastic trim plate, remove the screw at the bottom rear, and the upper screw holding the cord to the motor shell. The upper screw is a # 15 Torx screw. To remove the trim piece, insert a flat screwdiver into the rectangular slot in it and pry it upward. Reverse this proceedure to install the new cord.

I bought a replacement brushroll because the one in the vaccum cleaner is worn out.How do I go about putting the brush in the vaccum cleaner. Do I pull it out or do I have to unscrew the entire bottom...


Greetings from GoVacuum,

Make sure the vacuum is NOT plugged in. In order to replace the roller brush, you'll need to unscrew the 6 screws on the bottom plate of the vacuum cleaner. Oreck uses a Phillips Head screw, so you'll need to get a Phillips head screw driver to replace the brush.

After removing the screws from the bottom plate, simply pull up on the plate by putting your fingers into the open area where the existing brush is located. After the bottom plate has been removed you will have access to the roller brush and belt.

You can now just grab the roller brush and pull straight up on it. It's beneficial to change the belt of the vacuum when you're replacing the roller brush anyways. There is a spare belt on the actual bottom plate of all Oreck XL vacuums.

You'll notice that the new roller brush has two black square plastic caps on both sides of the roller brush. You can look on the outside of this black cap, and you'll see the words OLD and NEW. Rotate the NEW side so it's facing upwards, and the OLD side is the side that's down inside the vacuum cleaner, make sure that both sides have the NEW side facing upwards. You'll need to wrap the belt around the silver pin in the back of the vacuum on one side, and through the roller brush's metal pulley on the other side. The just stretch the belt with the brush inside of it, and place the black plastic parts back into the vacuum cleaner.

Congratulations, you've now just replaced the roller brush in your Oreck!

How to dissasmble vacuum cleaner, kirby g4 to check if motor or switch is bad


before you do all this, check the cord where it mounts to the handle up top by the pivoting strain relief. Frequently the cord goes bad right where it snaps in the strain relief.
first you will need to remove the handle, bag, and the cord. there is a release button for the handle, the mini emptor on the bottom of the bag twists off away from the body. there should be 2 screws on the scuff plate, one to hold the cord strain relief and another down by the transmission for the scuff plate. use a small flathead screw driver in the slot of the scuff plate and pry up. it will pop off. you should also take out the screw in the cord cover where it plugs, pop the cover off and remove the cord. now you can remove the top cover. there will be 2 screws in the front of the unit, and 2 screws under the scuff plate. they are either phillips or T15,T20 torx. remove those 4 screws and you can lift the top cover off and access the motor and the switch. check for bad motor carbon brushes and a worn commotator where the brushes ride. let me know if you need anything else.

The belt which turns the roller brush is probably worn and therefore not turning the roller brush. You can get a replacement here:

How do i open the power unit on a genesis 1672 vacuum cleaner?


I assume that yours is the same as the Bissell model 1672.

Here is how to disassemble the top motor unit. Don't pry up on the very top disk, which is an air outlet. It will only break off and won't allow access to anything. If you do break it off, drill holes through the four posts and use stainless steel screws to re-attach the disk to the plastic posts it sits on.

Now, beneath the air outlet is the rest of the motor unit. The motor unit consists of three pieces. The bottom piece is the lid to the waste water receptacle. It is concave pointing down (lid shaped). The top piece is the domed lid for the motor unit. The middle piece is a flat plate between the other two pieces. The top of the flat plate (inside the unit) has mountings for the suction fan and the pump.

The flat plate is bolted to the bottom piece and the top piece (domed lid) is simply snapped down to the flat plate. If you take a flashlight and look inside the area where the AC cord is stored, you can see that the domed lid is a distinct piece from the flat plate. The model 1672 and 1680 (or 1680-3 if you wish) are nearly identilcal.

To access the internal parts in the motor unit, you cannot pry between bottom piece and the the flat plate because they are bolted together. But you can remove the top domed lid. To remove the domed lid, position the motor unit in front of you with the switches at 9 o-clock. Three snap-downs which attach the domed lid to the flat plate are at 1 o'clock, 2:30, and 7 o'clock. Wedge a flat bladed screwdriver or pocketknife between the edge of the domed lid and the flat plate at those locations and the lever the domed lid out and then up. The domed lid will separate from the bolted-together flat plate and bottom piece.

Wiring from the switches remain attached to to the electrical components. You will see that the AC cord has white, black, and green wires. The green ground wire connects to the fan ground at the 9 o'clock position. The white power connects to upper connector on the pump and also to the fan at the 7:30 position. Black feeds both switches on model 1672 and then a black wire runs from the correct switch to the bottom connector on the pump or to the connector on the fan at the 1:30 position.

Model 1680 has a third switch which feeds power to the floor sweeper. It has its own connection to the green ground and white power and goes through the third switch to connect to black.

If you need to replace the pump or the fan, shop around carefully. The pump, for example, can be found for $30 plus shipping2_bing.gif, but some will want to charge you $80.

How to clean the power brush on the miele vacuum. Is the brush removable? If so how do you remove it?


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Miele canisters have 2 different types of power brushes. The first, and most popular is the Miele SEB 217, and 213 Power heads. To remove the brush, follow these instructions.

On the bottom of the power head there are 2 yellow (older models it is black) plastic screws. You can remove these screws with a phillips head, or flat head screw driver. Simply unscrew these two screws. You do NOT have to remove these screws, just unscrew them to where they are loose enough to remove the bottom plate.
607475c.jpg
38be2d9.jpg
Once you have unscrewed the plastic screws, simply pull the bottom plate up and off of the power brush. You will notice the belt on the left hand side of the brush. Simply pull the brush up, and un hook the belt from the brush;
6ad212c.jpg

Now that you have unhooked the brush from the belt, you may thoroughly clean the brush, and un wrap any hair or thread that is wrapped around the brush. You will notice on the roller brush itself there are two indentions on both sides of the brush that run the entire length of the brush. You can take a knife or scissors and run them down the brush on both indentions, which will help you remove the stubborn debris wrapped around them.

Also you'll notice on both sides of the brush that there is a yellow bearing cap on both sides of the brush. You may pull these bearing caps off, and remove any debris that is around these caps. You may also lubricate these bearings with grease or WD-40, to ensure the brushes spin fluently.
3ab4cc7.jpg

After you have cleaned the brushes and bearings, insert the brush roller back through the belt, and into the power brush. You'll notice that the bearing cap will have two sides. One side of the bearing cap has 1 groove in it, the other side has 2 grooves.
25b4424.jpg

When you reinsert the brush back into the power brush, you may lower the roller brushes if the machine has been used a lot. If the roller brush is older, you will want to re insert the brush with the side that has 2 grooves facing upwards, and the side with 1 groove in it, facing down. In the first picture above, you will see that the side with 1 groove is facing upwards and is visible to the camera. The side with 2 grooves is facing down. This is because this brush is new. If your brush is older, you will want to reverse that, and have the side with 2 grooves facing upwards. When the brush is back into the power head, simply put the bottom plate back on, (IMPORTANT! Make sure that in the front of the machine the bottom plate is completely hooked onto the front of the power brush, there should NOT be any space in the front) Once you have screwed the plastic screws back into the power brush, in the front of the power head, push the bottom plate upwards to make sure there it is fastened tightly in the front.

I hope this helps you. If you have the larger, less popular SEB236 power brush, just send me an email, I'd be happy to walk you through cleaning the brush on this one also. If you have any questions about this repair, please feel free to email with any questions, I really enjoy sharing my knowledge, and passion fixing vacuum cleaners.
