    I have a cheap Durabrand from Walmart. It's great for quick pick ups but my son played swords with the plastic part.

My bag style RY7500 Vacuum has a broken hose.. i can't find the part to replace anywhere online. Also don't know how to remove/replace.


You don't mention where it broke. Is it broken off at the very end or in the middle somewhere. If the ends are still OK and you love that vac, you can fall back on an old trick used by the military in WWII - duct tape! Find another vac hose the same diameter (any vacuum repair store will have them in stock) or you can take a piece of hose to a home improvement store to match up.

Cut out the broken area as evenly as possible. Cut a new piece of hose the same size you removed so the hose remains the same length. Wipe off the edges to remove any dirt. Lay your tubing on newspaper or cardboard. Next you'll need a sealant that will not only stick the parts together, it will remain strong after drying. (Silicone or epoxy glues both work.) Work on ONE break at a time. Apply a thin bead between the two pieces & press together. DO NOT DISTURB but leave the pieces to dry 24hrs. After it's dry use duct tape to reinforce the break (trust me, you'll be glad you did). Then fix the other side of the cut-out.

If it broke off at the very end, remove the hose from the connectors on both ends. Clean out any old hose -if any - if the hose fits inside the connectors. If it fits over a connector, make sure the outside's clean & smooth. Insert/Apply a new hose using the sealant. Duct tape after it's dry. (Yeah, I love the stuff. Saves a ton of extra work by supporting the stressed area.)

If it's just a small crack in the hose clean the broken ends so there's no dirt. Fill the crack in the hose with a thin bead of sealant, dry & duct tape it.

I've used this trick many times, so I know it works. Good Luck!

Remove hose adaptor for eureka maxima to replace with new one


We banged on the black rubbery part that holds the hard plastic adapter in place until the old adapter was broken into pieces then removed the pieces. The new adapter just simply snapped into the rubbery black connector piece. I then used a screw driver to scrape the gasket out of the old adapter and put it into the new one.

The scubbers do not spin


Just fixed mine which had same problem. A little clear piece of plastic inside the middle of the handle had cracked. This piece holds the switch in place and is probably made to fail. Make sure you unplug the machine before opening it. If you take off the carrying handle you can get the top half of the machine to come off. Set it aside. Now look into the top of the bottom half and see if your switch housing cracked like mine did. It cracked where it screws down so there was nothing to hold it anymore. (The black switch unplugs, BTW.) If you are creative, this can be fixed by drilling two small holes to affix the switch to the clear part again. We also made a metal plate to hold down our clear piece. Happy fixing! :)

I used my new proheat 2x steam cleaner the first


You may have mislaid a piece when you took your Bissell apart to clean it after using it the first time.

I experimented with mine to try and reproduce your issue. On the bottom of the water tank, there are two pieces that can be removed from it. One of them looks like a black plug at one end, with a red rubber flange piece on the other end. If you push your finger inside the red rubber piece, you can feel a spring move up and down. This is the first piece you place on the bottom of the water tank. I suspect you have this piece, because if you didn't, water would gush out of the water tank as soon as you turned it over after filling it.

The other piece, which is the one I think you may have have mislaid, is a larger black, plastic ring with screw threads. This piece goes over the top of the first plug piece, screws onto the water tank, and holds the plug in place. The words "RECLOSE TIGHTLY" appear on mine. If this piece is missing, the water tank does not sit flat on the base of the Bissell, but kind of flops around, out-of-place, and the unit will not dispense water properly, though it may leak it.

If ithat piece is gone, it should be possible to reorder it. Start here:
http://www.bissell.com/Customer_Service.aspx

If that's not the problem, if you have all the water tank pieces, I wonder if perhaps you unscrewed one black screw to remove the clear front plastic piece from the base of the unit-- the piece through which water is drawn up off the carpet-- to clean it, and didn't get it back into place properly. Make sure the two hooks at the bottom of this piece are inserted, one per side, into the clear plastic side pieces at the bottom. If the hooks are not secured properly, before trying to reinsert them, unscrew the black plastic screw so you don't break the tab. It's easy to miss getting these one of those hooks back in right, but it's important to do that before trying to screw the clear front plastic piece into place.

H300 brushes won't stop spinning even though I switch it from "wet scrub" to "wet/dry pickup" and is leaving streaks on the floor. I have already ordered a new squeege, but that won't take care of the...


Make sure you REALLY pull the lever controlling the brush spin all the way up. On mine I REALLY need to force it to the top. If I don't use enough force and it's just a tiny bit below the top, the brushes continue spinning. I wish it was easier to flip from one mode to the other but mine has always been "stiff". Hope this helps. It took me a while to figure it out. Once you get the hang of using it, it works GREAT!
