Bissell proheat 1698 cleaner not spraying water

Our carpet cleaner is not spraying any cleaner/shampoo mixture, although all belts and the motor seem to be working just fine. Heater is also working fine, and brushes are turning.

I noticed that the straw that draws the fluid in was at the top of the reservoir -- and all of the fluid was at the bottom. Bend the straw so that it is IN the fluid and therefore able to distribute it.

If water is coming out of the hose and not the spray tips,
try taking of the handle ,
put a small thin shim on the bottom of the plunger at the bottom of the handle ,this will make the plunger make full contact with the valve,

    make sure the bottom tank seals and solution bottle seals these are small red round seals are still attached to the bottom of the tank and bottle ,

    also make sure the brush is still spinning round,

    see if water is being dispensed from tho hose.

    make sure the handle plunger wich is at the bottom of the handle is meeting the valve

The little red dial on mine was not turning. Checked all filters and plungers and those seemed fine too. I noticed the red bristle brush was not turning. I turned over the machine and found a bunch of dog hair was caught up on the bottom including the spindle attached to the brush. Cleaned everything out and made sure the brush was turning again. Water and cleaner came out just fine after that.

If it is not dispensing water or solution it can be because the pump belt is stretch or worn and needs to be replaced. Here is the proper replacement pump belt:

A solution to many "non-spray" problems.


The Scotchguard is going to be dicey inside the Bissell, yes, as you have learned the hard way.

I think the Bissell and the Hoover shampoos sold for their carpet cleaning machines are reasonably safe to use in the Bissell. My own personal favorite for use with the Bissell is the Hoover Premium Pet Formula, which is pricey but effective even if you don't own pets. I also pre-treat stained areas with Resolve Carpet Cleaner, a few minutes before using the Bissell.

I don't know what will happen with your home brew containing Dove. It may work well.
