Having problems with your Bissell 1698 PowerSteamer ProHeat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Doesn't emit water in either tools or floor mode.

\015 My steam cleaner is only about 6 months old. It has been working great until one day it just stopped emitting water. Pure soap comes out in the mix mode and nothing in the water setting. My daughter in law has the same model and I switched buckets to see if that made a difference but it didn't. I love this machine and am at a loss how to resolve this problem.\015

Answers :

The mixer valve is most likely gummed up with old soap and stuck you will need to take the bottom of the machine apart to get at it. The problem with that is while it is easy to get apart it can be very difficult to get back together properly even for someone that does the job all the time. The only trick I can give you is to put a phone book under the base of the unit this will keep the wheels up and the base level to aid in reassembly. If you do get it apart remove the mixer valve which is directly under the grey mixer knob and rinse it in your sink very well. In the future take the time to empty the unused soap back into the bottle and fill the solution tank with water and rinse out the system before putting it away.

I just bought a Bissell Proheat Plaitnum 2 powersteamer at a yard sale that looks like it has hardly been used. So far I'm only able to get the water onto the carpet by using the hand tools. When I put it on floor mode it will suck up the water but not dispense it.

No water I have had a bissell proheat for 3 months. Now, the water won't come out in either the floor cleaner, or the tools. I have checked all the stoppers, they all seem to be in working order. It started to work for about 5 min, then stopped again. Is this a fixable, quick problem, or should I return it as being defective?

When using the floor configuration, I can't get the trigger to cause a spray of either water or cleaner. When using the tool configuration and the hand device with brushes etc, the spray works well with the hand trigger.


The trigger on the handle for tthe floor configuration has become loose or broken. When you squeeze it, the action pulls a rod that runs down the length of the shaft and goes into the base and allows the water to spray. You need to check and make sur ...

I have a Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub... The last time I used the hand tool attachment, it worked fine. Just tried to use it again, and now I only drips of water will come out of the hand sprayer, if that. I have tried prepping it for up to 15 seconds like the manual says... no luck with that.

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems. First the floor heighth adjustment doesn't work and now neither one will pick up on either carpet or floor when in the brush/floor mode. They both seem to work with the suction hose function.

We are desperate to use our vacu

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?
