Bissell 37603 Upright Vacuum smoking

My Bissell 37603 Upright Vacuum started smoking the other day while my wife was using it. I took the cannister off and noticed that the electrical plug between the detachable cannister and the power broom. The vaccum is only 2 years old, and although it is out of the express warranty, I am of the opinon this is due to manufactures defect and is also a health and safery issue. Anyone else have this problem. Please let me know. I haven't been able to reach a bissell rep about this yet but I am hopefule theyc can help.

    My model number is 3576-6 and its smoking. It also seems to never have the suction it originally did. I bought it because of the hepa filter and it was considered a 'good' vacuum if you have pets. I'm not sure I would agreet with that. Anyhow, I'm gonna call bissell and hope for the best.

You need to call Bissell, have your model and serial number handy. They may refer you to as warranty service shop to take it to, but it will be replaced with a new one, and under warranty. Call customer service at (1-800) 237-7691

Contact the Consumer Care Associate at 1-800-237-7691. It sounds like there is something more wrong than just a belt replacement. A person to person with Consumer Care may help.

Troubleshoot Bissell Lift-Off Revolution Pet Vacuum Cleaner

Probably a hose clog. Check the hose on the back of the cannister. Most likely clogged where it attaches to allow debris into the cannister. If cannister is not filling up, that's a sure sign. To remove from top of back of cannister, just turn the ring on the end of the hose to release. Take it outside and push a long thin object through it to force out the clogged hair or debris. The motor is designed to shut off the vacuum cleaner for 30 minutes when this happens to avoid burning up your motor.

Diagnosing the problem with my bissell quicksteamer plus upright

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.
