20 Most Recent Bissell 1698-1 PowerSteamer ProHeat Plus Upright Vacuum Questions & Answers


most of the Bissell carpet cleaners that have the water heating feature stop pumping water at one time or another. Make sure the belt is still on the pump and if it is then the problem is probably in the heater core in the handle. Hard water deposits plug the tiny little water ways inside the heater core. Pull the heater core and take it apart and clean it with a strong scrub brush and I think vinegar works for cleaning I was told. I just use soap and a brush. Then flush all your lines with hot water. The cause is from hard water deposits or leaving the soap in the cleaner after you use it. Both will stop it from pumping water

Hi Fraser! I'm sorry your ProHeat Plus has stopped working. I understand how frustrating this must be.

You may want to have a Qualified Tech at one of our Authorized Service Centers inspect your machine. Here's a link to help you locate one in your area:

Hi


The issue may be due to flow system; to troubleshoot the system follow the instructions--

1. Remove Smart Mix piston from the main housing and place Smart Mix body (located beneath the knob on the main housing, inside of the unit) so that it is 1/16" from completely inserted.

2. Replace tanks in unit.

3. Plug unit in and turn it on.

4. Pull trigger to check spray -- making sure upper handle is firmly positioned onto the lower handle. Water should flow through tubing from the tank to the pump and the red float inside the pump should move up. If it doesn't, replace the pump.

5. Check the tubes for air bubbles as the unit is spraying -- bubbles indicate an air leak that prevents pump from priming.

6. Locate the source of any air leaks and correct them, looking first at the auto load receiver (under the tank) and the Smart Mix assembly.

Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

1 could have hit the thermal shut off. if it gets to hot they shut off, or it could be the cord some times they just go bad or it could be something else. Good Luck!
