Bissell 1699Y re-assembly problem

I took it apart and resolved a problem with one of the spray hoses that came lose. Now I am trying to get it back together and cannot figure out the water/soap mixer. The knob has threads that catch on the edge of a mixer valve. I figure it is as simple as setting each full clockwise or reverse or something. I just cannot tell if I am getting it right.

I found an excellent video that shows how to reassemble the valve mixer, or the piston as it's called in the video. One reader was right in saying you need to turn the smart mix knob to "water only" to attach the piston to the housing and then turn it to "heavy traffic" to hold the piston in place while you put the housing back on the base. The video is actually about "replacing the pump and motor" but in so doing, you of course have to remove the housing from the base, and along with that, remove the piston. In my case, it fell out of the housing when I disassembled the unit. The procedure for reattaching and properly aligning the piston is very clear. The details are about one-third of the way through the video immediately after the repair guy takes the housing off of the base. I pasted the link below. If you can't click on it, please try copying and pasting it in the address bar. Hope this works for you! - Cheryl

Bissell 8920/9500 ProHeat 2X The Floor Cleaner base doesnt spray any liquid. I would take the base apart(and possibly trigger assembly), but the manual does not cover disassembly and assmbly of the tubes...


I just repaired my Bissell 8960 no spray from the base or the flex hose nozzel. Tried to find a diagram or service manual online but no luck. I removed the 2 jets that spray on the brushes and
there was small pieces of silt that would plug them up. only used this unit twice before but it's been
sitting in the basement for a year. anyways ending up takeing the unit all apart. All of the items you
need to get to are in the base not in the handle sections (except of course the spray switch) I put the whole thing on my large work bench to make it easier to work on. If you do take it apart make sure to take alot of pictures or you may not get it back together again. I labeled the hoses with different colored tape and was glad I did.The main problem was the 700 watt heater that is in the very bottom of the base. it was filled with white specs of silt. the heater can be removed and opened up so you can wash it out with a water and a brush. We have city water here thats supposed to be pretty good but know I know why the wife uses distilled water in her iron. Thats what I will be useing from now on in the Bissell..

No spray


pump part number is 2107181, the diverter valve # 2136988. You can Bissell and they can tell you who may have parts near you, or you maybe able to order thru Bissell.com. Before you took it apart, were you getting water to spray out of the hose. If you were the the heater is plugged and won't allow water to spray out the bottom.
