Leaking soap dispenser

While using the proheat steam rug cleaner the soap is now pouring out. I fill the soap dispenser and it empties before I'm half done with a room. I used to be able to do 2 rooms before having to refill the dispenser. Not sure if you can get replacement dispenser bottle for the machine.

    I have the same or similar problem. As soon as I put the SmartMix bottle in place, it starts leaking solution onto the floor.Haven't figured out yet if leak if from the bottle valve lid or the compartment in which it is placed.

This also happened to us. I just got a new one in the mail - did it over the internet on their website. Haven't tried it yet so hope it is the solution to our problem.

Leaks water or cleaner when setting upright


Turn the setting knob to the rinse cycle when not in use, and you have leftover cleaning solution. This is the standard setting when storing , it blocks the soap from dispensing.
Empty the water tank and rinse after each use, and store empty.
If still leaking check the lid on the soap dispenser, make sure the gasket is even before tightening down and or the gasket between the water tank and the body, make sure they seal , check if they are straight and flush where they connect..

A friend loaned me her Bissell Proheat Turbo carpet cleaner and I don't know how to use it - any help?


I like these cleaners.

First vacuum your carpet very thoroughly.

Depress the lever to tilt back the handle.
Grab the tank from the base. Remove the lid.
Fill the bladder with hot tap water. Replace the lid, and place tank back into the base. Put the handle back upright until it locks into place.
Take the soap container on the side and fill it with the Bissel soap solution. Place your dial on floor cleaner, and select either soap or heavy traffic.
Turn on the machine and the heater. Take your machine to the far end of the room and depress the handle put the machine in the corner depress the trigger and you will see a little spinning thing on the machine starting to spin - this means that the solution is blending and the spray is wetting the carpet. Pull the machine slowly back towards you about three feet and then let go of the trigger and pull the machine a couple more inches. When you stop the trigger will release. Push the machine forward and repeat the pull pass this time without depressing the trigger. For the next pass - overlap each and every pass (I do each pass at the half way point). Do this along the back wall. When you depress the trigger and that spinning dial does not spin - you are either out of water or out of soap. Go over the entire room with this technique.
Now this next step is VERY important. You have to do the whole room process AGAIN - this time with NO SOAP. I have used these machines for years and trust me - if you don't go over it again - your carpet will be a magnet for dirt. This time empty out your soap cup and rinse it out and refill it with WHITE VINEGAR. Again fill your tank with hot water. Re-do the entire room as if you are shampooing the carpet.

Let the carpet dry overnight - the next morning I would recommend applying scotchguard carpet protector (you can get the cans at H.D. or Lowes. Yes the Bissell solution has scotchguard, BUT when I apply the scotchguard again - the carpet stays so much cleaner so much longer.

Do it right the first time and don't cut corners and you will have the cleanest carpet on the block. It's a long process to do it right, but the end result is worth it.

OR if you want to save money and use something more environmentally friendly - fill with white vinegar. This will work just as good and leave your carpet less sticky from the soap and your carpet will stay cleaner longer.

Water won't come out


Hi there SmartAlec from nelsonvacuums.com.au here. I think that the likely solution for the problem is that the water tank is slightly warped and so will not seal properly. Normally this is caused by using hot water in the tank. It should still be covered under warranty though just take it back to the dealer and get them to check it.
