SOURCE: Plastic tube inside fabric bag broke cleanly at the base.

It can be fixed by yourself, if you are some-what handy. The part is called snap fill tube and the part number is 1900399 your local vac repair shop should be aware of this number part sell for about $9.00 to $14.00 hope that helps.

Spot bot leaking when using manual hose


This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.

If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.

I CANT GET MY BISSELL SPOTLIFTER MODEL 1716 TO SPRAY THE SOLUTION.


1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.

2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger

repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot

squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the

machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an

internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing

the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.

3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the

side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the

Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.

4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on

the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts

can be found at www.bissell.com

5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger

with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog

spray tip with a pin or paper clip.

If still no spray, please check the following:

a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.

b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.

Elkay drinking fountain M#erpb28c continuously runs, having problems getting mounting nut back onto bubbler, seems basin should come off for access, however needind a reapir manual or access instructions...


The Elkay fountains are turned on by a solenoid powered valve. There is a rubber grommet in that valve assembly that gets holes in it and then water gets behind it, causing the valve to stick on. To test that it is a solenoid problem, turn the water on and then unplug the power to the fountain--if the water continues to run you have a solenoid problem. You'll need to replace the solenoid and I've detailed how to do it with all the steps and lots of pictures on my blog: http://johnfixesstuff.blogspot.com/2014/10/how-to-fix-elkay-model-ezfs81b-replace-solenoid-35981c.html John Fixes Stuff How To Fix an Elkay Model EZFS8 1B Drinking Fountain...

How do you attach the upholstery tube to the main unit? thanks!


The larger fitting slides into the front of the dirty water tank. Remove the lid and either remove the duct, or lift it and tilt it forward on more recent models. The hose fitting goes in with the opening up, and the "V" shaped end down. After replacing the lid, push the round connector down onto it's fitting under the trap door on top of the nozzle, being sure it is fully snapped in place.

Hoover wiring


hello lukeplayer,
Based on your description, ( first disconnect the plug from the wall recptacle).You will need to open up the Hoover Vacuum Body to gaion access to the internal wiring. In order to better assist you, please provide me with the specific hoover model. In general though, you will need to see where inside the Hoover that wire became detached and then rerun it. Since your cord is already broken, you may be able to strip back more of the outer cord insulation to expose the internal conductors and then route, cut to fit and reinstall them. Hope that helps.. If not, send model details,,,
Regards,
Rick

Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
sucked into the tank.

c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
a leak.

e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
not to miss anything.

Does the cleaner solution go in small tank. Should the little tube be down in solution?


http://www.bissell.com/Product_Search.aspx?Criteria=1699
Above is a link to bissell.com where you can get the full user manual. But to answer your questions, the cleaning solution does go into the small tank with the tube, the tube should be arched and go to the bottom corner of the small tank. Clean hot (not boiling) tap water goes into the inner bladder of the big tank. Fill it till you can see the water near the top.

Was the exposed copper wiring on the electrical cord? If is then replace the cord. The main problem with this model is that Bissell obsoleted it as well as parts for it. But if all you need is a cord, you should be able to get one from a repair shop.
