Having problems with your Bissell 1425 Little Green ProHeat Handheld Steam Vacuum ?

Dirty Tank Smells

\015 I forgot to empty the dirty tank which of course has caused a ferocious smell. The tank is also full of cat hair and grime despite being rinsed repeatedly. Is there something I can put in the tank to soak and eat through the muck? and then just rinse out? Or is there a way to open the tank so I can get in there with a bottle brush at least? I'd prefer to use something non toxic, vinegar or something. Any suggestions?\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

You might try vineagar, if that doesn't work, put in some comet or some other scouring power, then fill w/hot water and let soak for awhile.

Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

Dear Sir: I just purchased a Bissell Rug Shampooer at a garage sale. The only thing I find for a model is on the back and it says Model 1695 there. Nothing on front.

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor.
