Bissell quickwash 1970E for carpets/hard floors won't come on

My Bissell 1870E will not work. Only used a few times. Last time burning smell and hot. Power button does nothing. It's not the plug or fuse.

If the burning smell was like rubber burning it is probably the belt. If you only used it a few times I suggest bringing it back to place of purchase. A belt should not go after just a few times of use. Besides if anything is burning after just a few uses I would return it.

When you smell burning like that it usually indicates that the belt is worn and slipping on the motor shaft. You probably need to change the belt. You can get the belts for your model here:

SOURCE: Carpet not getting moist

Huh I had this issue. It was killing me only used it like six times then no water. I took this apart four times man. They told me it was the pump. I finally ripped it all the way down. It was the pump. But it was the black connector on the main motor. Which runs the pump it came loose. I pressed it back on problem solved. Make sure you crimp it a bit. so it does not vibrate off again. Hope this helps.

Need a user guide for a Bissell 1761 carpet cleaner


The only 1761 on the Bissell site is a micro-fiber floor duster refill (2 refills sold for $10). https://www.bissell.com/microfiber-floor-duster-refill-2-pack-1761?utm_source=legacyredirect&utm_medium=legacyredirect&utm_campaign=%2ffloor-duster-refill-2-pack-1761%2fparts . Bissell doesn't have a manual for the refills.

This is the refill for the Bissell 1763 microfiber Hard Floor Duster. See https://www.bissell.com/microfiber-hard-floor-multi-surface-duster-1763 . The instructions for this model are available on the page. The direct link to the instructions is https://www.bissell.com/~/media/site%20us/documents/user%20guides/1763/bissell_instruction_sheet_floor_duster_1763.pdf?la=en . These instructions only include the directions for adjusting the handle length on the duster.

I hope this helps.

Motor making grinding noise and burning smell


A bit too late I fear. There is either grit from an overloaded dust bag in the motor or the brushes have worn out. Spares and not expensive.

Burnt rubber smell when vacuuming


This could be a few things:

A. If your model has a floor selector switch (Bare floor/tools - Carpet) your clutch could be worn. (there is a rubber clutch pad between your cam and roller shell) - Fix would be to replace the clutch pad and belt.

B. If you don't have one of the above models, your belt could be stretched. The belt slipping could cause a rubber burning smell. Fix - Change belt.

C. Have you got any new carpet you are vacuuming or have you moved? Some of the newer style frieze carpets can cause burning rubber smell. The fibers of the carpet are longer and cause the brush to slow down causing the belt to burn. (Imagine brushing long hair with a thick brush, the hair easily gets tangled in the brush, same effect with this carpet.) Some of the newer rugs can do this as well. Some newer carpets with the thicker felt backing and/or the "pet padding" under the carpet can too. it doesn't allow enough air to flow through causing the cleaner head to seal itself to the carpet causing a burning smell. The fix is Move to another home, replace your carpets or replace your vacuum. The vacuum is the cheaper option but be cautious as most vacuums now do this with these carpets. We have had really good response from customers using the Simplicity Tandem Air models, (Synchrony and Synergy models.)

Hope this helps, if you need to talk further feel free to contact me.

Bissell lift off bagless making high pitched noise, fan seems to run for 30 seconds after shutting off, and a burning rubber smell, is it the belt, and how easy are they to change


The burning rubber smell is usually the belt. Be careful not to use it on your carpet as the rubber belt can get hot and liquify and really mess up your carpet (if you have one). Here's a link to some instructions for replacing the belt.

My Oreck XL was working fine, then when I vacuumed a shag rug is started smoking and smelled like something is burning. (I changed the bag, checked for clogs--none found, and roller brush is turning. It...


Even though the brush is spinning, the belt is probably worn out and stretched. when you vacuum the shag carpet, it puts more drag on the brush. try running it on a shorter carpet or hard floor for a few minutes. if it doesn't smoke, then you know it's your belt. if it does smoke, then it's probably the motor burning up.

Bissell carpet shampooer wont dispense water


Bad Pump. You pump is where the belt attaches to spin the brushes and also puts water on the floor. Take it to you local Best Buy to be serviced or a local appliance shop which may service it.

Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright
How do you change machine from carpet cleaning to hard floor cleaning?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Upright are mainly designed to do mostly carpet, you can use it for bare floors, but for good wood floors I would use less water and pickup the water ASAP because you don’t want the good wood floor to warp - linoleum floors are fine but be careful with wood floors, and remember that the Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot Uprights
Clean on the pull back, you squeeze the trigger, dispense water, the machine will use the scrubbing brushes to clean and the vacuum will pickup the water all in one smooth motion.
For further information please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in the area or the yellow pages or contact the Bissell Factory @ the information listed below:
