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.

Good Luck

    Sorry, Correction: If your attachments work on this particular unit, but not the floor portion, you probably have a clogged heater.

Water comes out the accessory hose but not the floor cleaner


I had the same problem and the heater ports were clogged. I took apart the top unit and cleaned the ports with miniature bottle brushes used to clean spray painting equipment (purchased at Harbor Freight for $4). Reassembled and the unit worked fine.

Make sure that the piston on the bottom of the smart mix valve is in the water only position.(needs be be on the knob and not sitting in the hole). With the top off, it is easier if you have a block of wood or something under the base to hold it up. Other wise it drops down and the screws can't grap the base. Also make sure all hoses aren't being pinched.

I have a 1699 proheat upright steam cleaner and the water is not dispensing on the carpet but the brush is turning


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 also, 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.
