SOURCE: my carpet cleaner

I took my Bissell proheat apart trying to fix the suction in it. I finally realized that the red filter has to not only be cleaned but also opened to get the suction needed for a good cleaning.

SOURCE: bissell 2x wont **** up the dirty water

My machine would not **** up the dirty water either. I tried everything, read the "troubleshotting" section in the manual and nothing worked. Then I discovered there is a little FILTER that is not mentioned anywhere and is hard to see. It was clogged with dog hair. It is in one of the two removable sections on the top of the machine. It is NOT in the bladder section but the section with the dial to switch from floor to tool. It is red and about 1 inch long. There is a little door on it that you flip open (it actually looks like you can remove it). Flip the little door open and you will probably find a bunch of gunk. Remove it and the machine should work perfectly. Mine now does! Good luck.

SOURCE: water line routing

The biggest prob with Bissel is not pumping soap. Becuase if you don't run hot water through this tank the soap will dry and clog after cleaning and storing. Before taking it apart try running hot water through the solution tank and help break up the residue, best of luck. Steve

No suction on my Pro heat steamer


You may want to check to see if the removable nozzle is correctly placed into its place. This is the plastic part where the water is sucked up through by the carpet cleaner. The nozzle notches must fit into the groove on the cleaner correctly and the metal bar need to snap back on top of the removable nozzle, Also sometimes if you have hair trapped in the nozzle or the bristle, it will affect the suction power of getting up the dirty water. The dirty water tank need to snap in place by making sure the top of the gray snaps on each side is over the top groove of the dirty tank on each side and the the gray snaps are pushed down and pushed into the tank to until it is snapped in place.
Super Simple answer could be: The Dirty water tank could have bubbles in it causing it not to **** too.

Doesn't return the dirty water to the tank, after apply the water


My Bissel has been having problems sucking the dirty water back into the tank. It's like it works for half a dozen uses and then just stops working. After I turn it on and off for a couple of hours trying to troubleshoot the issues it just starts working out of the blue again and sucks up the dirty water. I know there is a yellow stopper that goes up and can stop the flow but that's down and not the issue here.

Bissell proheat 7901-1 steamer won't **** up the water


Sounds like either the pump is not working or the collection unit has an air leak.

Bissel Power Steamer Pro


yes you can but it would require taking the entire hood of to replace it ( it hooks on inside there ) but those machines need to be opened very carefully and you need to make sure several pieces are back a certain way, so i would take it to an authorized bissell repair center, go to there website and put in your zip code to find the closest one to you.
