Having problems with your Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum ?

No suction for the hand held tools

\015 What do I have to do to get the attachment parts to actually work? In addition to that problem cfan you please tell me how to get the water to not drain out all at once.\015

Answers :

For the attachments, turn the knob on the left to tool setting, that will open the valve at the top to allow suction thru the hose, then squeeze the trigger to spray. Close it when you are done or you won't have suction down below.

\015\012If the water is running out, either the valve at the bottom of the tank isn't working right or youy have a water line off, probably have to take off the top cover to check that out.
