You don`t have to use the Bissell solution, but it is optimized for use in their machines. This means it won`t streak, leave residue, need to be rinsed, or leave buildup in your machine.

Conclusion. Ultimately, running your vacuum over your carpets after a professional deep clean is great but remember to do it only after your carpet is completely dry. Vacuuming your carpet when it`s still damp could cause dirt to be transferred from your vacuum cleaner, so patience does pay off.

A: Yes, you can leave clean formula/water in the tank when not in use.

Detergent left in a carpet, serves as a magnet for new dirt. When finished shampooing, run a tank of clear water over the heavy cleaned areas (e.g. entrances and walkways). This will help remove excess shampoo and keep those areas cleaner for longer. It also helps to rinse out the shampoo from inside in the machine!
You can use a vacuum cleaner for this, as most have an upholstery setting or attachment. However, if you feel your mattress needs a deeper clean, BISSELL suggests the use of the SpotClean Portable Upholstery and Carpet Washer, or the SpotClean Turbo.

I have a Dyson DC-17 and the top of the cyclone has hair and other debris jammed in the ports. It has 6 six screws holding the parts together and I can only get access to 4 of the screws. The bottom piece appears to be removable, but I can’t figure out how to remove it without damaging it. If I can get this piece off, then I have access to the other 2 screws. Can you tell me how to remove the bottom piece? Thanks in advance.
ANSWER : The instructions on how to dis-assemble your DC-17 are somewhat lengthy and it is quite helpful to have pictures and videos handy while you are doing it.

Agitator belt failed in my Hoover F5853-900 Steam Vacuum Cleaner. But can not remove bottom Cover .. have removed top cover and two screws from the bottom Cover. The smaller Cover is glued to the large Bottom Cover. Need help.
ANSWER : Hello,

Unscrew the plate. check if there is any screws at the bottom, if none, exact little pressure to pull out the bottom cover. At this .point you should be able to see the broken drive belt along with the two. drive bars. Remove any debris from the vacuum head. Untangle any long threads .wrapped around the beater bar. These only put more strain on a drive .belt, so keep this area of your vacuum clean..Slip the new drive belt on the beater bar. Connect it with the drive .shaft. You may need to use the screwdriver to stretch the belt enough to. get it over the two shafts.
Make sure the beater bar turns freely with the new drive belt attached. Put the plate back over the beater bars.

Take care.

Bad Motor I have purchased two of the Kenmore direct drive beltless systems with Progressive systems. The first died after a year, the vacuum motor start making a grinding noies. I pulled the side HEPA filter and could see a fine coating of graphite like dust. Took it to a vacuum repair shop. They said the brushes were going and thus the motor was shot. I liked the vacuum and bought a second, 1 year later the motor is making a slight noise that and removing the HEPA filter I find a slight metall
ANSWER : That dust is from the carbon brushes on the motor. You may need to check them, and also clean out the motor compartment. A slight noise could be a motor bearing starting to go. Does the smell like rubber or electrical. If rubber, then the belt has stretched and needs to replaced. If electrical, then something is causing the motor to run hot, like a clogged filter, or it could be a motor going bad.

We have a beam Serenity plus home vacuum system and there is no longer sucks. I removed the dirt from the bottom plastic container, but I also notice a sack or bag connected to the unit when I removed the bottom container and inside that sack there appears to be lots of dust. How do I access that and remove that dust without damaging the unit. I don’t know how to do that
ANSWER : Hello. Let’s begin by getting that dust and dirt out of your permanent filter. To do this, get a big clear plastic bag and pull it up aroung your canister, with the dirt receptacle removed. Then Grasp the sewn in weight inside of the filter and shake it around. This will cause the dust to come into the plastic bag. Continue to do this until most of the dust has left the filter and made it’s way into the plastic bag. THEN
.1. Put the empty bottom plastic container back in place as hopefully now, and turn the unit on using the manual switch on the side of the unit. Let it run for ten minutes.
.This may solve the problem but if the system is still clogged read on:
.1. Replace the empty dirt receptacle and use the manual switch on the side of the unit to start the unit. Leave it running as you continue.
.2. Then start at the closest wall balce to the unit and open the door to the wall valve. Then let a tissue be sucked from your hand. If the tissue makes it back to the dirt receptacle proceed to the next wall valve.
.3. IF at any valve, the tissue fails to go through to the dirt receptacle, there might be a blockage of some degree. At this point, use a shop vac or at least another strong vacuum cleaner to try to use back suction to uncolg the blockage.
.4. If that fails, you will have to snake the pipe, a dry garden hose works well for this purpose.
.Enjoy your working system and be sure to empty the dirt receptacle on a regular basis so the filter doesn’t get filled again. Regards, Joe
