Having problems with your Bissell 1698-1 PowerSteamer ProHeat Plus Upright Vacuum ?

Nothing spraying out of Bissell Powersteamer Proheat. I've check filter under flow indicator, pump belt is fine, cleaner in proper tank, bladder of water tank is full. We've had it for a very long time but it's barely been used. Can anyone help?

Here is how to fix it
I had two problems. No water was coming out of the main unit (it was working fine via the powerbrush) and the flow indicator wasn't spinning. Because I'm out of warranty, I did two things (after trying all the options that were posted).
1. Removed the top of the main unit. There are 4 screws on the top back lid. Once you remove those, lift the back up towards the front. The front is snapped under the bottom casing. It should come up with a little pressure, but don't force it. With the top lid removed, I had to clean several of the rubber hosing by removing them and running under warm water. I actually used a long wooden skewer to scrape the grime in the tube. Make sure you do one tube at a time and replace in as it was before moving to the next one. While you are at it, make sure the 2 sprayers on the front are clean as well. They are either orange or yellow and rubber tubes also feed into the sprayers. After I finished, I replaced the lid. It it still wasn't working, so I tried step 2.

2. Remove the hose assembly from the main handle. 2 screws and 2 bolds (don't lose the nuts from the back). Once the hose assembly has been removed, then lift off the top part of the handle. Once the top is off you should be able to open the front lower part of the handle exposing the additional electrical and more rubber tubbing. In the middle is rectangular looking object. That is the water heater. If you just ran the vacuum, do NOT touch this as it will be hot. Wait for it to cool. check the connections of the rubber tubing and make sure they are clean. In my case the tube going in to the heater was all blocked up with cleaner solution. Once I cleaned that up an reassembled in reverse order, the unit worked fine.
Hope that helps you.

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet

Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn't blocked as well. ... Vacuums

I have a Bissell powersteamer powerbrush that sprays for only a few seconds then stops. If I wait 20 seconds or so it will spray again for another 1 or 2 seconds. I have only used Bissell cleaning products in it and clean it every time after use. The hot water tank and cleaner tank are full.

Lost Suction This is my second hoover steamvac and i am having the same problem with my new one as i did with the old one that i tossed out. I have used it about 12 times and it worked great the first 6 times... Now i'll empty a full tank of water and only half will get sucked back up. I have tried taking it apart and cleaning and also the rubber seal had some gaps so i sealed those thinking that it was leaking air from there...can anyone help? I am so close to chucking this one and buying somet

Usually when there is no suction, one cause is the lid to the recovery tank is not on all of the way in the back.

I got my bissell for $7.50 from a thrift store, if you can believe THAT. Used it for the first time today after reading the manual online first. After filling the clean water bladder full of hot water and setting everything up the way I wanted, proceeded to turn things on and go for it. Well, the water/solution just kept coming and coming, without my finger on the trigger. Obviously something is jammed in the open position but where? The trigger moves freely.

This is the answer I got from Bissell:Please\015\012check the gasket at the bottom of the tank to ensure it is attached and\015\012not lodged in the reservoir of the machine. If this is not the problem,\015\012take the machine for i ... Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum

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.
