Having problems with your Bissell ProHeat Turbo Deep Cleaner Upright Steam Vacuum ?

Carpet steamer continually sprays water/cleaner. Can't stop it!

\015 I fill the bottom tank with water, and the formula tank with cleaner. Start the machine and push the spray button. It seems to spray and vacuum up, but the water & cleaner just keeps spraying out, even when I have let up on the button. I end up with extremely saturated carpets, and go through cleaner like crazy. I have to go back over the carpets with the machine just vacuuming up all the extra water/cleaner. This takes alot of extra time. I have looked to make sure that all of the parts are in the right places and latched down correctly. I'm just not sure which part is not woking. If you give me instructions to try something to help pin point the problem, I will. If something needs to be replaced,I just don't know which part I would need. Thanks for all your help!\015

This is a solution for the Bissell Pro Heat, although it may apply to other Bissell steam cleaners as well. This is for the problem of the cleaning solution continually spraying without stop.

I found a quick and simple solution to this problem.

This problem occurs because the valve that allows the solution to flow gets "sticky" and will not close. The valve is engaged by the trigger mechanism in the handle. Squeezing the trigger pushes downward on the valve's plunger, but the spring in the valve that is meant to push the plunger back up to the closed position is not capable of doing so.

Here's the solution:

This valve is white and resides about half way down the vertical handle portion of the cleaner. To get to it, unscrew the 2 black screws that hold the top part of the handle to the bottom part. These are the same screws that you used for assembling the cleaner when you first bought it. Pull the top portion of the handle up and it should slide out.

Now, looking down into the handle body of the remaining portion of the handle, you'll see the top of the white valve. If you push down on the top of the valve (like the trigger mechanism in the top part of the handle you just removed does) it may go down some, but it probably won't go back up by itself like it should.

I found that lubricating this plunger with dish soap was the trick. If you can't get enough access to the valve to do this, you can remove the seven phillips head screws in the lower portion of the handle and pry it apart. I did this. I even took the valve out and put soap around the plunger and into the valve itself. I worked it up and down until it had a quick and positive open/close action.

Reassemble and you should be good to go. You'll notice that the trigger now has a more positive feel to it. I hope this helps.

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.

I have a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and the brushes spin, then stop. I turn it off and when I re-start, the brushes do not spin until I push foreward. The it spins and stops again. Both belts are tight. The brushes spin if held above the carpet, but upon contact with carpet it stops. Same thing on a hard surface.


The reason for the brushes to stop when it is above any surface is there is a switch in the handle that stops the brushes so it dont burn your motor up it may have a faulty switch. ... Bissell Carpet Cleaner Powerbrush Deep Cleaner Vacuum
