Question about Bissell ProHeat Turbo Deep Cleaner Upright Steam Vacuum

7 Answers

Not picking up water on a bissel proheat turbo 2x

When I turn the dial to normal and wet the carpet I assume the water should be picked up when I am not pulling the button and am moving the vacuum toward me. When I finished there is NO dirty water in the tank (thus why I think the machine in not pulling the water out). Do I have to use the rinse cycle as well and if so, is this when the dirty water is removed from the carpet? Thanks

If unit is not picking up solution it is most likely the small red plastic filter that is just above the small float door in the top piece just left of the tool switch.. pop it out clean muck out of it and it will work like new again.. have fun!!

    IF THE RED FILTER CLEANING DOES NOT WORK, THERE IS LINT CLOGGING THE PASSAGE AROUND THE DIAL THAT YOU CHANGE FROM TOOL TO FLOOR CLEANING. YOU WILL NEED TO FLUSH IT OUT BY RUNNING HOT WATER THROUGHT IT WHILE TURNING THE DIAL AND SHAKING VIGOROUSLY ON OCCASION UNTIL THE LINT FLUSHES OUT. GOOD LUCK.

We had this problem last night - checked the belt, cleaned the brushes, etc. It worked fine on sucking up with the hand tools, but would only **** up with the vaccuum part when the unit was in the upright position standing still - i.e, when we would tilt back to begin moving forwarding the suction would stop.

The user guide doesn't tell you this part in the trouble shooting section.........
The red door thing - that supposedly closes when the tank is full, or if the unit has hit/knocked into something, actually has a filter on it.........the filter had a bunch of debris in it..........we cleaned the filter and the machine is back to working like a charm!

We tried the above solutions, and although helpful, they still didn't solve the problem. Then we took off the clear shield that surrounds the tools/floor switch and reseated it more carefully, then screwed it back down. That did the trick! Suction was being lost there because after removing that plastic piece to clean it, we did not re-seat it well. Hope this helps!

I have a Delonghi Multi Vac M31 and have never used the wet part...I would like to clean my carpet using the wet vacuum...can you please tell me how I can do this? Many thanks


A good place to start is the owner's manual. If you don't have one, you can google the make and model of your multi-vac to get another copy.

Most wet-vacs work off the same principle. Pre-vacuum the carpet to make sure there is not normal surface dirt and dust. Next Squirt on hot soapy water, scrub it in - then suck up the dirt and collect the dirty water.

So after vacuuming the area to be wet-vacuumed and you are lucky enough to have a separate reservoir on the wet-vac unit - add pre-mixed carpet cleaner into hot tap water (with carpet cleaner mixed into it by the ratios described on the carpet cleaner soap bottle) to the multi-vac water reservoir (from a quick look, the Delonghi doesn't have one) . With the settings for wet vac (per the owners manual), squeeze the trigger for applying the carpet cleaner. Typically, you will go slower than normal vacuuming. Give it a chance to soak in and dissolve/lift the grim and dirt. Come back slowly to pull the dirty water out of the carpet.

There are multi-wet vacs (like the M31) that don't have a reservoir for the carpet cleaner. In that case, you need to pre-mix a couple of gallons of carpet clean in a separate container or bucket. Next spray or sprinkle carpet cleaner onto/into the carpet. Try to scrub the cleaner into the carpet to really get at the dirt and lift it. Next is to vacuum up the wet stuff.

Some carpet cleaners do not contain an anti-foaming agent. I recommend you either add an anti-foaming agent or buy a carpet clean product that already contains it - otherwise, it tends to be a big mess that takes a lot more time.

I hope these tips help.

I cant figure out how to **** up water with my kirby dimond


Vacuuming a wet carpet with your Kirby or any other vacuum not designed for wet pickup could do serious damage to your machine and there is a real danger of electrical shock to the operator.
Your Kirby Diamond and every other Kirby for that matter is NOT designed to pick up water!! Even with the shampoo system attached it will NOT pick up water or the shampoo foam. Your Kirby spreads the shampoo foam around on the carpet to clean it. You then only vacuum a shampooed carpet after it has completely dried.

Too much solution being dispensed--carpets very wet--running out of solution before even 1/3 of room cleaned


The cleaning solution tank is only sufficient for part of a room, unless the room is very small.

Are you following the instructions for using the cleaner carefully? The machine has to be pulled backwards (towards you) at a steady pace in order for the vacuum to pick up the water that is dispensed. Do not use it like a normal vacuum cleaner - that will not work.

You need to start facing a wall, and pull the cleaner towards you, moving at about one foot every two or three seconds. The vacuum will then pick up the water that has been dispensed and the carpet will be damp but not sodden.

The water is staying in carpets and is not being sucked back to the machine


The pick up slot across the front of the unit may be blocked or internal path for the water into the tank. Disconnect from electric and strip down the head and check for fibres/fluff balls - as these are the normal culprits. I am assuming that the suction motor is running?
Good luck
