Dirty Water drops behind shampooer

When I use my Bissell Pro 2X it leaves dirty water droplets when I go forward with the shampooer. If you absolutely do not make sure you go over that area it will leave dirty spots all over. Why does it do this??????

    Dirty spots of water leaking out of the bottom of the vacuum. Scrubbing heads don't work.  There is very little info out on the web on how to troubleshoot a bissell.  Good work covering it up, Bissell Corp..


    This is the second Bissell I've owned and it has broken after three uses.  I'll not buy or recommend another.

You are over sudsing your recovery tank. The machine is made to shut off the air flow if water starts to be pulled into the motor, but bubbles want trigger that. So if there are a lot of bubbles in your recovery tank, the get sucked into the motor (Which will destroy it eventually) and then the moisture gets exhausted onto the floor from the motor.

Solutions
1. Use less soap (Read the directions, you may be using too much)
2. Use a different kind of soap (The concentration might not be right for your machine)
3. Use a defoamer (Rug Doctor has a defoamer)

I had the same problem with my Bissell carpet cleaner. I tried all the recommendations but nothing worked. After reading all the blogs, I discovered that many people had the same problem. Fortunately, I still had the receipt from Costco which they honored and gave me a full refund. I was ready to throw it in the trash.

It may be a clog in your tank, preventing the water being sucked back up. Check your tank and tubes for clogs or damage. Make sure the brush is still rotating and the belt is not broken too.

I have a bissell pro heat2x turbo. my problem is that the sprayer underneath is not working, also it sounds as if there is air coming from somewhere.


Sounds like there is a leak or crack somewhere in your tank.
Check the tank and tubes for damage or clogs. You may have to replace your tank.

I have a blue bissell preheat 2x. While shampooing it will start to leak dirty water. When i'm done shampooing my carpets look even more filthy then when I began. Not sure why this is happening besides...


You should drain the dirty water, you should find where it is stock then drain it. If there's some leak, seal it with an epoxy. Thoroughly clean the inside and you will find there's a stock of old shampoo which causes water to become dirt.
I hope my advice help you.
