1) Just to be safe, unplug your machine, and check entire length of power cord for damage. If it’s damaged, please stop using the machine and take to a BISSELL Authorized Service Center to have a technician check it.
You can locate one of our Authorized Service Centers by clicking http://www.bissell.com/support/product-support/service-centers.
2) If there’s no damage to the cord make sure to try multiple working outlets. The breaker may be blown for that outlet. You might want to also check the amp limit of your circuit breakers. If you are using a 12 amp machine, and the circuit breakers are 10 amps this would trip the breakers. If you have many appliances plugged in to a breaker, you’ll probably continue to experience blowing breakers.
