Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum

6 Answers

Mystery part Bissell 1699-P. I removed the top cover and a part came tumbling out (from the rear of the machine - towards the handle area). I have no idea were this part belongs. I have a schematic of the cleaner but I can not locate the part on it. I tried to copy and paste a picture of the part but that isn't working so I will attempt to discribe the part: There is nothing stampted on the part that I can see. It is plastic(white), 2" long, 3/16" in diamater. One end is U shaped (u-shape is 1/4" wide and 1/4" deep), 1/2" from the u is a circle projecting around the shaft (1/4" total diameter of 'circle'). The other end tapers down to a noched end - 1/4" long, 1/16th thickness, with a barb (for lack of the proper name) on the outside edge of it. Since opening the cleaner and having this part fall out I have not attempted to use the cleaner! So I can not tell you what it is and is not doing. Please help!!!1 Thank you Thank you for any help you may offer.

    No I did not see the part in those pictures!

    Thank you

    Is there anyone of the 'experts' who has actually taken one of these apart? If so this should be an easy part to identify.

  • stefff4788 Jan 13, 2009

    I have not used the cleaner since this part 'fell out'. I will try the cleaner today and get back to you on if it works properly or not.

One question... you haven't mentioned that the vacuum doesn't work now... as hard as this is to accept... if it doesn't effect the function... forget about it.... i could very well have been something you vacuumed up along the way.

Hi 

  • Cleaning performance decreases quickly as the permanent cloth filter becomes clogged with dirt.
  • Airflow forces 100% of all vacuumed dirt directly against the permanent cloth filter – no cyclonic air path or separation is achieved. The result is dirtier filters for greater clogging potential and less vacuum power.
  • Debris is not released from the permanent cloth filter until the vacuum system is turned off. This helps to unclog the filter, but a dirt film remains – reducing original performance.
  • Permanent cloth filter systems can not be restored to like new condition once dirt and dust are embedded in the filter. Coatings like GORE-TEX® and Teflon® help reduce embedded dirt, but do not eliminate it.

    An item with a barb usually indicates it is supposed to be secured in a hole, and not meant to come out. Look for a hole to put the barbed piece in. It may have just gotten dislodged accidentally.

    Is there a schematic available online?

    Without actually seeing the piece, it is hard to say - could be a broken part off another piece.

Wear do you put the water


Inside the main tank is another container for clean water.
To fill it, lay machine all the way down. Lift handle and remove container. Take to sink, turn handle, and remove lid. Fill with hot, clean water. Replace and lock the lid. Place container back into tank and put handle down.

With the top part of the handle off, lay the handle back and at the top in the middle, there is a catch, just push it in to release it and the front of the handle will come off.

Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View uses very little soap.


The valve at the bottom of the soap tank may have gone bad, Also try running a mix of water and vinegar(not on carpet) to see if it will clean the system out. The system may just need cleaning out.

Do you mean the handle? If so, there are 2 screws and nuts holding the top part of the handle on, remove these then pull off the top part. Then on the back, near the bottom, are 2 holes that go in aways and there is a screw in each one, remove them and the two halves of the handle will come apart and you can get to the heater and lines.

Lift the formula Tank up and out of the machine base.

base of machine, making sure it is seated securely.
Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning
of red gromment and straw.
