How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

A possible cause might be that the tank is not properly seated. To assure the tank is seated properly, pick it up and re-seat is so it sits snugly on the unit. If this doesn`t fix the problem, make sure the tank is assembled properly. To make sure they are both latched properly, pick the tank up by its handle.
Your dirty water tank may not be secured tightly. Check the rubber tab on the dirty water tank and press firmly on all edges to secure it tightly. The accessory hose door also needs to be closed securely. Check the door and make sure it is locked in place.
Possible Cause: Clogged Solution Tank Filter

A clogged filter will not allow any water to be released. The Fix: Remove and inspect the filter for a blockage. If the filter is dirty, remove any buildup and reconnect to the floor scrubber. Once free of debris, the machine should begin to distribute water again.

WHY WON`T THE MACHINE PICK UP? The float in the dirty water tank may have been activated. Empty the dirty water tank and wait for the float to settle before re-starting the machine.
1-8 of 8 Answers. No. It uses the solution to clean but does not suck it up.
Yes, you should keep cleaning the carpet until the water is clear. This will ensure that your carpets are clean and free of dirt, dust, and other allergens. However, you should be careful not to scrub too hard or use too much water. Doing so can damage the carpet and lead to more stains in the future.
But this brings up the question of what type of cleaning solution should be used so that the machine works to its fullest potential. When using a floor scrubber you will need to use detergent to clean up the oil, dirt and whatever else is making your floor dirty.
The superficial causes for your VAX vacuum shutting off during use can be from blockages along the hose and body of the model. There can also be a blockage caused by a build-up of dust, dirt, hair and debris across the models` brush bar.
Clean the filter screen located at the back of the dirty water tank. To re-fit, tilt the dirty water tank and line the front of the tank up onto the carpet washer. Push back until it clicks into place.

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

If you`re wondering whether you can use the Bissell Crosswave without water, the answer is yes!
Locate the brush reset button on the lower back right of the vacuum. Press the button to reset the brushroll To ensure the brush has been reset, plug the vacuum back into the electrical outlet.
Lift the tank straight up. Unscrew the cap. Decide if you`re cleaning hard floors or carpet, and fill with hot tap water to the appropriate water fill line. Then fill with the proper BISSELL formula to the appropriate formula fill line.
A: You actually can leave it because unless you`re doing a really heavy job you probably won`t even use half of your clean water. I wouldn`t leave the clean water if I didn`t plan on using it in a week. Make sure you clean the dirty water immediately though. Helpful?
Can I use cleaning formulas other than the BISSELL brand? BISSELL does not recommend using ANY cleaning products other than BISSELL specified products in our carpet washers.
Use a plunger to loosen deep-down clogs. Pour baking soda and white vinegar down the drain; after 10 minutes, flush the drain with boiling water. If the drain is still clogged, use a plumber`s snake to snag and remove stubborn clogs. Once the drain is flowing freely again, replace the drain cover.
You should leave the recovery tank of your machine left open to dry. Some machines have a mechanism that will hold the lid of the tank open. Pro Tip: If your auto scrubber tank is not left open to dry, mold, mildew, and odors may develop.
To begin, make sure you thoroughly sweep the floor so you have no dirt left behind. Next, combine a gallon of warm water and a cup of white vinegar in a bucket and mix together. Dip your mop into the bucket, wring it out, and mop your floor from end to end.
Charging. Your goal is to fully charge your Floor Scrubber batteries after each use. Preferably, get them fully charged and in float at least 4 hours before use. This is the cooling period in the cycle.
Any high-traffic areas in your home should be wet mopped once a week. Rooms in your home that are not frequently used—such as a guest room—do not need to be mopped weekly. Mopping every other week or monthly should be sufficient.
Basically, sweepers utilize powerful brush bristle movement to clean floors. Scrubbers utilize a system of both a squeegee and brush which require water and possibly specific chemicals to operate.
Loose connections will cause your vacuum cleaner to lose suction. Make sure that the dust container, the hose, the tube and the brush are all attached properly. If the problem continues, your vacuum cleaner might have a technical problem. If you suspect this to be the case, contact an authorised service agent.
IF NO WATER IS BEING COLLECTED FROM THE CARPET

Check the seals are in place on the dirty water tank and that the tank is housed correctly and securely locked into position. Ensure the emptying cap on the dirty water tank is in place. Please check there is no damage to the front nozzle or dirty water tank.

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t
ANSWER : The belt heats up due to the friction, as well as being in contact with the shaft of a hot motor. It is normal.

Water is not being discharged. I have filled the reservoir that holds the carpet cleaner fluid And I have filled the water container. I know how to use the cleaner, it has always worked, But now, no water is being discharged to the carpet. I turn it on, squeeze the trigger, but nothing comes out. The wheel that is suppose to spin (to indicate that water is being discharged) is not spinning. Everything else works. I.e. the suction works, and the hand held accessories work.
ANSWER : That means that the pump belt is worn and it needs to be replaced. You can get a replacement belt and view the manual here:

Bissell Pump Belt

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there’s two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it’s a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?
ANSWER : Just taken ours apart with the same problem… found it was caused by the 2 halves of the main casing coming apart in the area where the upright pedal release is. I found this to be due to the upper casing having broken in 2 places – the bottom of the screw wells..This means that the water tank cannot exert sufficient pressure on the valve to release the water..Only solution is a new top cover assembly

I really hope you can help me, I am a dog groomer and I really need my machine to work properly. I can get it to spray water out of the smallest hand attatchment but

Dirt devil vacuum cleaner–trouble vacuuming dirt and pet hair on carpeting –is the problem with the spinning brush which contacts the floor,  not contacting the carpeting??  I thought (when I bought this vacuum) that the aforementioned brush was adjustable to various heights of carpeting.  Sometimes, it seems like nothing is being vacuumed up –unless I have just put a new bag on the vacuum… Do I need or can I replace the spinning brush on the bottom of the vacuum so it kicks up and vacuums
ANSWER : Try replacing the belt. Rubber belts stretch out after about a year.

I have the Bissell Proheat (7901) It will pick up water and the hand tool works fine. I noticed that the red indicator stopped spinning. Then I noticed no water was coming out. If I put down water using the hand tool, the vacunme will pick it up. When I called Bissell they had me do something with the indicator. When it didn’t work they said take it in for repair.

Bissell Proheat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum Problems

My 4 yr old Nilfisk vacuum cleaner has been working fine up until now. But suddenly, it has hardly any suction power and also, hot air seems to be coming out thru the vents on top and also thru the space that’s normally used for blowing air OUT….the outlet with the retractable cover located close to the part where the power cable comes out of and retracts into. I’ve checked the filter and the hose and they are not clogged…I have also put in a new bag. Not keen to buy another vacuum cleaner u
ANSWER : Hi there SmartAlec from Nelsonvacuums.com.au here.It sounds like a blockage of some kind. The best way to find it is to set the machine up for normal vacuuming and remove one component at a time until the suction returns. eg turn on and feel suction under floor head – not good? then remove the rod, then the hose.
Once at the machine on its own it gets a little triky as i don’t know which model you have. However if you have a bagged model remove all the filters and the bag and retest. There will be at least 2 filters, one before the motor and one after (maybe under the vacuum or right at the back). If it is a bagless model even though the filter may look clean it is probably blocked with very fine dust. If suction returns when the filter is removed then you need to buy a new filter. I am a nilfisk vacuum cleaner agent so i can supply a filter for you.
If this still doesnt help you are welcome to call me if you live in australia my contact details are on my website www.nelsonvacuums.com.au.
Hope this helps !.
Happy vacuuming 🙂
