Question about Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum

Open Question

Broken "ready tools dial"

The "Ready Tools Dial" that you switch from "floor cleaning" to "Tools for Pretreat" does not appear to be working. The switch feels loose and the machine is no longer sucking the dirty water back up. How do I fix this? I cannot seem to get to the inside of this dial - no readily visible entrance to that compartment.

That grey lever needs to be closed while floor cleaning. You only open it when you use the hose.

SOURCE: HOOVER SPINSCRUB WONT SUCK UP WATER...BLOWING AIR OUT

ITS THE DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT OF THE DIRTY WATER TANK (DWT). ITS NOT LINED UP.
1. TAKE LID OFF OF DWT
2. SLIDE THE LITTLE SQUARE PIECE (5'X5'X1) (THE DUCT) ON THE FRONT OF THE DWT AS FAR UP AS POSSIBLE AND IF IT BENDS FORWARD FROM THE TOP, DO THAT TOO (SOME MODELS OPEN LIKE A DOOR TOP DOWN, OTHERS JUST SLIDE UP AND OUT COMPLETELY)
3. SLIDE THAT DUCT BACK DOWN AS FAR DOWN AND BACK AS IT WILL GO.
4. PUT THE LID BACK ON BY HINGING THE FRONT LATCHES ON AND THEN SNAPPING THE BACK SIDE DOWN.
5. CHECK TO SEE IF THAT DUCT PIECE ON THE FRONT IS LOOSE BY PUSHING ON IT AND SEEING IF IT MOVES UP AND DOWN.
IF IT IS, THE LID ISNT COMPLETELY ON, GO BACK TO STEP 4.
IF THE DUCT IS SNUG, CONGRATS YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST MADE YOUR STEAM VAC **** UP THE WATER AGAIN

Tool attachment won't **** up solution


Check to make sure the Floor/Tools dial is set to tools. The dial should be on the side of the unit or on top of the dirty water tank depending on your model.
