Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum
I had a problem that required me to take apart the unit. When I tried to reassemble it I can not get the fluid mix control valve to work. I don't know get it together.
Can you help me?
This is one of the most difficult machines to work on, but I can help you to reassemble the the "Automix Assembly." There is a black piston with an O ring on it that has to be put in place before the hood is put back on. This part will actually set inside the windings on the smart mix knob, before the hood is placed on the machine, and as you place it on the machine, the piston will have to slide down in the hole on the automix. Getting the piston into the windings can be a little tricky. You might have to play with it a bit and it doesn't lock into place. It just sits in there loosely, just enought to hold it in place while you put the unit back together. It's hard to describe how to place the piston in the windings of the knob, but I'll give it a try. Hold the hood upside down and place the squared corner of the piston into the squared corner of the hood between the knob and where the solution tank would sit on the opposite side. Now you can turn the know and screw the piston down into positon and the hood is ready to install.
Hit: put a book or peice of 2X4 under the unit between the rear wheels to lift the wheels off the work surface and help line everything up. If the hood doesn't feel like it is seating into place correctly, something is wrong. Very important on this machine: if even one hose is slightly out of place it with not pump. If it doesn't pump alway check the attachments to see if they pump. It they don't, then you might have a clogged heater.
