I've purchased 2 of these both are broke again, although I may fix one again and give it away instead of throwing it in the trash. You can tell by all 10 pages on this site that these machines are just **** that is poorly designed. Just ordered a Rug Doctor Mighty Pro from Kohls with 30% off for $503. You won't even find 1 problem on this site on a Rug doctor. Also you can research them as I did and 98% of their owners was very satisfied, alot of whom used bissell prior to Rug Doctor. You will also see that the performance is way, way better and not even close on cleaning.......

I have a Bissell 1690 carpet cleaner and it is leaking water very quickly out the back. How can I fix this problem?


I had the same problem with my bissell proheat carpet cleaner. My cleaner would leak water out the back when i turned it on. I opened up the cleaner and found there was a broken tee connector. The tee connector was a small black plastic three way connector shaped like a letter "T" with three plastic hoses plugged in to each end. One hose had broken off from the tee, the tee connector itself had snapped. Bissell has a couple hoses that run up through the upright porsion of the cleaner, i believe if that hose gets pulled too hard by over extending the cleaner upright portion it can snap the tee connector.
I purchased a vacuum line tee connector at the local auto parts store for a buck and replaced it. The vacuum line connectors are for rubber lines on a vehicle related to the engine, but they work fine for the Bissell. The size i purchased was 3/16"x3/16"x3/16". The cleaner works great now!!!

Here is how i took it apart:

I removed the water reservour, the soap dispenser, and the cap for the air flow indicator (red spinny thingy).
I removed the two screws in the very back, the two in the middle on each side of the water resevour and the two in the front. I carefully lifted the top of the cleaner off.
Inside you have to watch for a black plunger piece that might fall out, it belongs to your (heavy traffic/light traffic/water only) turn knob. If the plunger falls out reinsert it back into the underside of the cleaner lid right next to the knob, you will see how it fits in there...hopefully. Inside the bottom portion of the cleaner you will see a few hoses. Check them all and make sure none of them are disconnected or broken off from the tee connector. I would almost bet that this is what your problem is if the machine is leaking. replace the valve, reconnect hoses and carefully reassemble the cleaner.
Hope this helps...

Can not attach top back to bottom


Water pump on vacuum? steam cleaner / carpet cleaner? You have gotten something out of alignment. Check seal and make sure to have everything else in place before trying to screw back together

My bissell carpet shampooer won't spray out water


The tubes inside the machine are probably clogged. Dismantle top hood and disconnect the three lines at the pump, open up entire top housing and inspect heater. Disconnect two tubes and heater and blow out with air compressor. That will spray all the junk, soap that has built up and your machine will be good as new. If you can't do this yourself, contact bissell and ask where your local repair center is

My bissell powerbrush won't **** up the water


had same problem - carpet soaked with dirty water and very little, if any, cleaning fluid used. Easily remedied. Removed water resevoir and found that the rectangular shaped washer at the top of the front cover (the bit you had unscrewed to give a good clean) had become dislodged. It has small lugs on either size which lock on to the plastic opening when pushed down firmly. Resevoir then sits on top and makes full connection, also ensure that grey locking handle is fully pushed down.

Seemed to me that the water wasn't being sucked up as there was air getting in and this has down the trick. Sorry if this is difficult to follow but all will become clear when you look for the black washer! Good luck

Bissell 9300 carpet cleaner


You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck
