Asking again. Better wording? My lightweight Bissell carpet shampooer is continually spraying cleaning solution. The sucking action works well but can't keep up. This unit does NOT HAVE A HEATER. This is a simple unit. Is there a cable going down the handle from the trigger? ( it feels like that's the way it works. Could the drain be plugged. Also it will only use 1/2 a tank of solution at a time. Then must be filled again

I have a Bissell ProHeat 2x, and I did something dum. I had some powdered cleaner that said it works with carpet cleaners-well I mixed it in-and the next time I tried to use it, nothing came out. So, I took it part to check what was wrong-and found out that the powdered cleaner solidified in places. I cleared the nozzels, nothing. I think the solenoid, between the heater and nozzels is pluggd, and possibly the heater. I've got a question-could I use CLR to clean the heater, with replacing t

I have a bissell 1698 powersteamer. i have already cleaned heater and completely cleaned all parts , checked the mix piston, checked belt. it will not shoot water or mix. the motor runs, it will **** water and the brush turns. is it the pump and does the pump just shoot the soap?


Pump is probably bad. When you put the lid back down, did you put the piston on the bottom of the smart mix knob? Also the smart mix knob should be in the water only selection when the top is pushed all of the way down. Also sometimes the flow ind ... Vacuums

Hi gownzilla,The solution cap has a spring loaded fitting so that when you put it in upside down, the projection in there in the machine pushes up on the fitting to release the solution when you pull the trigger. It could be that the proj ... Bissell Carpet Cleaner Powerbrush Deep Cleaner Vacuum

We just used our bissell pro heat 25A3/64D9 series and the top half of the handle is not secure. Infact it flies off in my hand as im cleaning the carpet and it almost hit me in the face!!!

Hello, could you help please. I have a Bissel ProHeat 9400-M. The water remains in the bladder when the machine is on, in other words nothing happens and I cannot clean with it. Inside the tank the small flap is in the open position. I have always used your products although I did run the Bissell over an area that had been cleaned with another product. Could that have caused the problem by blocking it somewhere? I have cleaned everything and cannot see a blockage. Thank you for your help.

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

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning.....
