Question about Vacuums

2 Answers

Bissell - Model 1697 - Powersteamer Pro - Carpet Cleaner I took the unit apart to replace some broken pieces and I can not seat the bottom to the top without properly engaging the soap/water mixer. What is the proper assembly procedure. What is the orientation of the water/soap mix valve when I seat the top to the bottom? The soap/water mix valve needs to engage the knob screw threads but this assembly is a blind operation. Do I turn to the soap/water mix knob to water only then seat the bottom and top together?

    The is a carpet cleaner.

    Bissel - Powersteamer Pro Model 1697



    There is a soap / water mix knob on the right top side of the unit.

    When assembling the top to the bottom what position should the soap /water mix knob be in so the knob engeges the mix valve?



    To disassemble the top from bottom I removed 4 screws around the bladder (water container)

    the top front was hooked onto the bottom at the front of the machine.



    After you assemble the top the bottom how do you tell if the soap / water mix knob is engaged with water / soap valve?



    When I rotate the water / soap knob, the top seems to push away from the bottom when I am watching the side of the rug cleaner.

    Incorrect assebly guide. Need assembly guide for Bissell Powersteamer Pro Model 1697

    guru_fixya,



    Thank you very much for the parts diagram. The first parts diagram (the diagram with 75 pieces) that you sent me is the Bissell model 1697 PowerSteamerPro that I have. It helps a little but now I can use the part names on the diagram to explain my problem.



    The Automix knob was broken and the right and left elevator lifter were broken. I purchased new parts and am trying to reassemble the rug cleaner.



    Here is how I am assembling the machine.

    - Insert Automix knob (30) into Main Housing (31)

    - Automix Piston (42) is seated in the Automix Assembly.

    - I rotate the Automix Piston (42) counter-clockwise and insure that it is seated in the Automix assembly.

    - Mate the main housing (31) to the base assembly (40) by clipping the front of the main housing (31) over the front of the base assembly (40). There are no screws in the front and the base assembly just has a small catch that locks onto the base assembly.

    - Hold the rear of the main housing (31) and the base assembly (40) together. I didn't put the four screws in yet.

    - Rotate Automix knob (30). I watch where the main housing (31) and the base assembly (40) meet and notice that when I rotate the Automix knob (30) the Main housing seems to be pushing away from base assembly.



    How do I insure that the Automix knob (30) engages the Automix piston (42)?

    The assembly is a blind operation and I can't seen the parts engage.

    Here is how I am assembling the machine.
    - Do NOT Insert Automix knob (30) into Main Housing (31).
    - Automix Piston (42) is seated in the Automix Assembly.
    - I rotate the Automix Piston (42) so it lines upwith the details of the Main Housing (31). You need to look through the hole where the Automix knob goes.
    - Make sure that the Automix Piston (42) slides uo and down easily. I had to lubricate with petrolem jelly.
    - Mate the main housing (31) to the base assembly (40) by clipping the front of the main housing (31) over the front of the base assembly (40). There are no screws in the front and the base assembly just has a small catch that locks onto the base assembly.
    - Screw the rear of the main housing (31) and the base assembly (40) together using four screws.
    - Look through the Automix knob hole in the top of the main housing to insure that the Automix piston isn't trap and is lined up with the details in main housing (31).

    This is wher I am at. Should I
    - Now fully seat (push down) the Automix piston (31) into the Automix assembly then screw in the Automix knob (30)?

    I think I figured it out. Could you please confirm?



    This is the earlier comment just formatted so it is readiable.

    This is where I am at.

    Should I - Now fully seat (push down or raise) the Automix piston (31) into the Automix assembly then screw in the Automix knob (30)?

    I just don't want to break the auto mix knob since this is one of the pieces I am replacing.

    Yes....the diagram helped me describe the problem everyone knew what I was talking about. I used the part terminology of the rug cleaner in the diagram. The Automix piston must be in the LOWERED postion not the raised position. Then you screw on the Automix knob.
    Machine is now repaired.

My Bissell powersteam powerbrush carpet cleaner wont spray water from the floor jets or the hose. Checked the belt, its doesn't look damaged, also took it apart and cleaned the floor jets, still nothing.


Check any related mechanical and/or electrical parts, including switched, levers, buttons, valves and all water-ways. Make sure all electrical connections are clean, functioning with a multi-meter, and all pieces are NOT broken or malfunctioning and clean. replace any broken or malfunctioning parts that you can't clean or repair.
