Question about Bissell 1698 PowerSteamer ProHeat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Bissell 1698 Powersteamer no spray

Steamer is not putting out any spray. I have checked the belts - they are fine. I have cleaned the fileters. The water tank seems to fit ok - although it doesn't seem to snap in solidily.

    how do you test the pump on a rug doctor? Mine is spraying but taking seemingly forever to empty the tank. just doesn't seem to be putting out the proper volume of cleaning solution.

If it seems like the tank does not fit in securely, the round gasket that goes around the valve at the bottom of the tank may have come off and actually be in the hole in the bottom of the vacuum base. It looks like it belongs there but you can pull it out with some needle nosed pliers. After you remove it, put it around the valve on the bottom of the tank, then it will fit into the hole again and everything should seal correctly. Mine was not spraying and would not suction well. figured this out and now it works great again.

I completely disassembled my Bissel ProHeat only to find that the little white water propeller (or whatever you want to call it) in the front, near the brush and under the black case, is not pushing out a lot of water. Maybe they go bad easily?

Hi check if there is a micro switch triggerd by the tank - make sure it hits it maybe the heat element have retired if its not this - then the steam system is clogged good luck

If water comes out of hose,the fault is in the handle or the heater.
try putting pad on the end of the handle plunger to make the plunger longer to reach the valve.
or the spray jets are blocked

If it is not pumping water out of the vacuum that means that the pump belt is worn. Here is a link to the belt you need and a manual you can view:

Bissell 1698 Powersteamer no spray


A simple thing to check is make sure the round seal is on the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank not sitting loose in then hole that the tank valve goes into. Could be a problem with the flow indictor cap leaking air. Is the top and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the plastic breaks loose and the top will rise enough that it raises the tank so water won't flow. Your pump may be bad.
