It has the rubber seal and the container releases fluid when it depressed.... bipolar lol..

fill it with hot water and prime the machine.. don't use soap just try lear the lines.. always run hot water through your machine to clear the lines before storage.. and to maintain prime

How to put automix piston back in place of a Bissell Power Steame


Called the Bissell Power Steamer customer service number and the CSR explained how to turn the water control knob counterclockwise 260 degrees until the automix piston grabbed hold. Worked like a charm. Thank you Bissell company.

Remove the cap for the flow indicator, then there 6 screws to remove to take off the top, before removing the top, turn the smart mix valve to about the half way point so the piston won't fall off. When you are ready to re-install the top cover, just before pushing it all of the way down, turn the smart mix valve to the water only setting, then push it into place, re-install the screws and the flow indicator parts.

Removing the top of the 7901-1 Bissell Proheat


Unscrew the cap for the flow indicator, remove the 6 screws, the top will come off. When you put the top back on, make sure the piston is hooked on the smart mix knob(underneath the top cover) set the smart mix valve in the wtaer only setting, then put the top back on. Turn the smart mix valve to make sure it is turning like it should, then re-install the 6 screws and the flow indicator parts. (don't over tighten the screws)

I have a bissell proheat clearview plus steamcleaner. i was using it and then the little red flow indicator stopped spinning and it quit sprayng any liquid. i looked for where it could be clogged but i...


Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

MY BISSELL DOES NOT WORK


When you put the top back on, did the piston line up and go into the hole? The piston mounts on the smart mix knob from the bottom, just before the top is on, put the smart mix knob in the water only setting, then push the top down. You could also have pinched a line if any of them aren't in the right place.

Will not spray water or cleaner


When you put the top back on, the smart mix vale should be on the clear water setting. Make sure that the piston is on the smart mix know under the top.
