My bissell proheat upright steam cleaner is spraying out through the attachments just fine, but will not spray to the floor when using upright. we've taken it apart to find that there is no water at all going through one of the hoses, but it appears the hose is connected behind the on/off and heat switches, we can't seem to figure out how to get in there to replace that hose....any suggestions on how to access this?? just curious how you would get in to replace the hose, we know it is the hose..

My Bissell 9200 is not sucking the water into the dirty water resevoir. 1. The gasket on the clear-view seems fine. 2. The suction power just doesn't seem powerful enough (feeling with my hand). 3. The brushes turn fine and belt is fine (not sure if that even matters for this issue). Any help appreciated. Thanks, - Matt

Hoover SteamVac Plus 1200 upright hot water extractor Water/carpet cleaner applying o.k. Suction on the "floor" does not work. Suction on the hand tool works somewhat, but water is not collecting in the bucket. There is suction coming from the floor but water is not going into the bucket. It does not appear to be clogged because I can feel with my hand that air is flowing from the floor. The water is not being sucked into the bucket.

We just took our dirt devil Platinum Force Carpet Shampooer Model CE7900 out of the box - first time used. It puts soap and water down fine, but we can't get any dirty water picked up. None of the trouble shooting suggestions in the manual apply. HELP! (We had only the power on when trying to pick up the dirty water.)

Make sure you have soap in the soap container or the water will not pump. Sounds strange I know. Even if you have the soap mixture selector turned off, it seems that these machines won't pump clear water unless the soap resovior has fluid in it. D ... Vacuums

We have bissell pro heat and I have put new belts on and took off the top plastic cover I blew out the lines and I still can't get it to pump water or solution. The red little spinner flow indicater does'nt get water, if I pour water into it it runs out the front. I guess I don't know what else to do. The machine worked fine the last time we used it about 6 months ago. Any suggesttions?

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

My Bissel ProHeat carpet shampooer is not spraying to the floor. I have checked the hoses best I can and they appear to be clear, no clogs. The nozzles don't looked clogged either. The above floor hose does spray water. I definitely have not gotten my money's worth from this machine. Any solutions?

My steam pocket mop seems clogged. Steam does not come out of the mop head. The clog appears to be in the rectangular mop head. The triangular head still works fine. I've tried soaking it in hot water and soaking it with cleaning solutions. They have not worked. If I blow into the connection piece, no air goes through. That's what leads me to believe there is a clog. If you can help, please do. I like the product and haven't been able to use it for awhile because of this. Thanks.


I had the same issue with the rectangular mop and corrected it by disassembling the tube from the rectangular piece. There are two screws that will need to be removed in order to get access to the connector. Once the connector is removed from the rec ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

My bissell powersteamer model 1695 does not spray enough water out. Hardly anything will come out of the handheld attachment either, just a few drips. With the floor unit, it appears the only water coming out is a result of gravity when the control is squeezed. Nothing appears to be plugged up with debrie or deposits. There does not appear to be any kind of drive belt for the pump as it seems to operate off the main vacuum motor. Any ideas?

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?


Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone. The collection tank should have a air exit vent--is it clear? Check the interior hose that you ... Hoover F6213-900 SteamVac Agility TurboPOWER Steam Vacuum Vacuum
