After replacing pump water comes out in short squirts. It seems to come out of pump in steady stream but short squirts at nozzles including hand held.


Check your filters. Flow Indicator Filter: Turn Flow Indicator Cap counter-clockwise to remove, lift rotor and filter out. Clean filter and replace in reverse order.

I have a bissell pro heat 2 it will spray water through hand held pipe system but wouldnt spray from main capet brush area can you help me please


Ours would not spray water either, after messing with it for ages I discovered the round black housing that the tank locks into where the water flows out of the tank was loose. So I held the housing from underneath while seating the tank & it started working. It's very flaky & a lousy design. Good luck.

Bissell Pro Tech Pro Steam Cleaner - no suction @ pump


Take a look at the Service Center Repair Manual (courtesy of Bissell New Zealand):
http://newzealand.bissell.com/images/IncludeContent/Service_Center_Help/Upright_Deep_Cleaner_Repair_Guide.pdf

There's a (basic) diagnostic routine for cleaning solution flow (page 7). However, there's a step that's (somewhat) left out. If you follow the diagnostic and get no spray, then try to spray with the hand-held upholstery thing. If:

1) you can spray cleaning solution with the hand-held upholstery thingie, and

2) there's no pinching of the lines at the base of the unit,

...then your heater block is probably blocked. There's a Lower Handle Disassembly guide (page 20) which you can follow to get at the heater block. The input port on mine was blocked with lime, and quite clearly so (I live in an area with pretty heavy water). You can also take the heating block apart (page 8) to better clean out the flow channels, and apply some descaler. I suppose you could also just recirculate descaler through the input and output ports of the heater block, but I wasn't exactly equipped to do so.

If you can't spray cleaning solution from either the upholstery thingie or the main unit, you probably need a new pump. Word of advice: get the one with the METAL PULLEY on the end. The old ones had plastic pulleys which often failed or deformed to uselessness after a while. Since the pulley wasn't replaceable, you had to order the whole pump assembly. Bissell maintains a list of service centers in various countries / cities which can either repair your unit for you, or, considering the name of this website, sell you the parts.

Good luck!

Hoover F7425-900 How to attach hand held cleaner


There is a round door at the top/front of the clear duct on the hood of the unit. You insert the hose there and then connect the small solution hose to a valve that is located on the right side (if you are facing the machine) of the machine, just ahead of the rear wheel.
