These are really great units, chances are the tank isn't seated properly or the pump has lost it's prime. Check the owners manual for troubleshooting. I have included a link to download the owners manual if you are unable to find yours. Click here to download

I would be careful in mixing solutions with different machines. The steamer carpet cleaner applies the cleaning solution differently than the spin scrub. If anything, I would delude the solution before using it in the shampooer. The steamer automatically deludes the solution, the scrubber directly applies a thick coat.

Lost the manual. Need carpet/solution water


Below is a link to dirt devil. just put in your model# for the manual.
However most cleaners you buy give you the cleaner to water ratio on the bottle. Also you do not need to use Dirt Devil cleaner. All carpet cleaning solution are pretty much the same aside from the fragrance. The best ratio that I have found is approximately 5oz of cleaner for every gallon of water. Make sure you use hot water. Using cold water or waiting to long to use the mixture can reduce the efficiency of the cleaner.
Hope this helps.

Bissell carpet cleaner does not have suction like it should


Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool use) and is on the underside. It is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter with a door on it. Flip open the door and it is probably clogged with hair, carpet fibre, etc.. Clean it out and you should have full suction once again.

Instructions or manuel was not included.


i downloaded the manual for your machine, but not sure how to access it for you,but i do know about the problem, the tank that sits down on the front of the steamer and it has 2 clips that you push in to lock the tank is where your dirty water is put in when you are cleaning your carpets. the tank above ,the one where you put your solution and water in is what is used to shampoo your carpet. on the handle is a trigger (black) button ,this is the button you push in to release your solution onto your carpet. release the button to extract the water from your carpet,moving your steamer in a back and forth motion. the trigger button is the only button on the machine and is only used to put the water /cleaner located in the upper tank on your carpet, releasing this button and moving your steamer back and forth over the shampooed part with extract your dirty water into the tank that sits below the solution tank. go on www.hoover.com and click on carpet cleaners ,scroll down to find yours and click on manual. and the owner manual will download and you can print it out for future reference, i hope this will solve your problem, sandy
