Having problems with your Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Pro heat carpet cleaner will not pump solution to either cleaner head...sometimes, at first, pump will work for about 1 minute or so...tried re-seating the tank, but no good...what should I check?


Answers :

The very best thing to do is to fill the dispenser tank with hot water....just plain hot water. Take it outside on concrete, so you can see what you're doing, and operate the cleaner heads. Alternate back and forth. What's happened is that the machine has set with solution residue in it, and it is stopping it up. The hot water will eventually dissolve the goo, and the machine will start working properly. It may take more than one tankful of hot water, but one will probably do the trick. To keep this from happening again, run another tank of hot water after you've finished. I do it on my carpet after shampooing, and it has the added bonus of vleaning the pickup side as well!

The carpet cleaner does not spray cleaner, nor vaccum up excess water. It's been taken apart, cleaned, reassembled, refilled, twice. Have double checked seating of tank, placement of filled cleaner bottle and yes - it's plugged in.

Automatic shutoff red ball in recovery tank rises to top when recovery tank is about 20% full.Thus we are only able to use the steam cleaner for about 2 minutes before having to empty the recovery tank. Ideas to resolve ?


Your cleaner should have a foam sock around the float cage in the recovery tank. Remove the foam sock and rinse it out with clean water. If these are very dirty, they may cause the airflow to be disrupted, causing the float to raise prematurely. ... Hoover SteamVac Carpet/Upholstery Deep Cleaner Vacuum

I have a Polti Vaporetto Lecoaspira 710. I have filled the tank and set the machine up as usual.

We don't live in a hard water area so it shouldn't be 'limed -up'. The manual says to leave it to cool down and then try again. That had no effect.
