Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum
I have the same prob. this is what i found
Since changing the belt is the easiest fix, we suggest you check that first. (Before attempting any repair be sure your machine is unplugged from the electrical outlet). Most Proheat models have two belts; a cogged belt that turns the brush roll, and a flat belt that turns the pump. If the pump belt is stretched or broken it needs to be replaced. The pump and belts are located in the front of the machine on the operator’s left. Turn the machine over and you’ll see a red retainer with 2 screws. Remove the retainer to gain access to the pump and belts. While you’re there check the red pump pulley, it’s where the two belts are. If that pulley is broken or loose you’ll have to replace the whole pump, the pulley is not available separate.
on your housing you will see a plastic cover adout 4 inches long remove this piece and you should see where your pump belt goes. flip your steamer over and remove the little red retainer that sits by the belt you have located. at this point you can take your brushroll out and slip the pump belt over the pump and onto your motor. then reassemble.

The belt cover is located on the left side just forward of the rear wheel. You must look closely or you will miss it. It requires a flat tip screw driver to pop it open on each end. The belt is inside, note the belt is thin and small diameter, do not confuse this small belt with a heavier duty vacuum cleaner belt, the vacuum cleaner belt will out the motor faster.
