Having problems with your Vacuums ?

Accidentally sucked Kleenex into the vacuum hole under the dirty water container spot

\015 I accidentally sucked some kleenex into my bissell little green machine proheat when I had the dirty-water container pulled out of it and was trying to mop up the water that had dribbled underneath where that container sits. It got sucked up into the vacuum hole in the bottom. How do I clean it out? It wasn't a huge amount, but I'm worried that it's clogging up some (internal) filter somewhere.\015

My Bissell spot bot stopped sucking the solution from the container. When we had the problem before we just reseated the container and it started releasing the water/solution. There is a funk little hole that takes water from the container and it seems to move around a bit. We own 3 spot bots, and have had trouble with all of them.

I have a Bissell Steam Cleaner that is not sucking up the water when cleaning. I used a full container of water and when it was empty I emptied out the water, only to find very little dirty water in it. I noticed the window, as i used it, seemed like it wasnt sucking up the water. I took the plastic cover off to clean it (it didnt look very dirty in the first place), an i noticed that the grey plastic flap was on but not moving up or down. I thought there may be dirt in it that prevented it from

I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I
