Question about Bissell 1697-7 Powersteamer Pro Deluxe Vacuum
I have the Bissel 1697w from Walmart. It has been used a few times, but now the water solution does not spray. I turn it on and the brushes turn, but when I pull the trigger, no water. I took it apart but failed to see anything that looked wrong. Any ideas?
I have a similar model and occasionally have problems with water/detergent flow. I find it is generally due to an airlock in the piping caused by forgetting to turn the deregent water control off before removing the detergent container. Follow the manual instructions. Turn the knob to off. Fill both containers. locate them carefully. Make sure filters in the water tank and in the flow meter are clear. Start machine with handle laid flat and knob turned to maximum flow.

It worked but had to do it several times to get mine to work. It still has the problem but I think one of the lines may have sprung a leak. It seems to be leaking soapy water on the side of the detergent container.
