Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

System will spray soap, but no water is mixed.

System is only spraying soap and no water. Removed covers. I have vacuum after valve that adjust soap/water mixture. If I connect water directly to outgoing hose I get water, but not through valve. O-ring on valve seems fine. valve is a simple needle valve.. it doesn't make sense that I get soap and no water.

I had the same problem. After 3 weeks of seals belts pump etc. I was ready to give up.
The problem with mine as I suspect with others is the seal on the water tank.
The bottom plastic connector is not high enough to allow the water to flow to the pump.
My solution was to raise the bottom connector 3/16 of an inch.
I did this with a piece of plastic cut like a flat washer or auto gasket material could be used.
The connector must be removed from the bottom by pressing on the tabs. Hope this helps.

No Spray from Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech s/n 01222111


When you put the cover back on, was the piston on the bottom of the smart mix knob? If it was, did you have the smart mix knob in the water only setting? Sometimes the flow indicator cap may be on too tight, loosen it while it is running until fluid starts to leak out, then tighten it until it starts spinning. On the bottom of the tanks, are the seals on the tank and not sitting the the hole. You may have pinched a line when you put the top cover back on. May still have junk in the lines somewhere, try running a mix of vineager and water (not on the carpet), that mix may clean it out.

No water spraying


Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

Bissel powersteamer clearview will not spray water


Did the gasket on the bottom of the water tank come off and is either missing or sitting in the hole where the tank sits? It needs to be on the tank.

First is the smart mix valve turning like it should? If it is then replace the soap dispensor. Also is the gasket on the valve at the bottom of the bottle?

I have a bissell power steamer That is not spraying soap, only water. I have checked all the filters and belts that I know of I also tried to reprime the pump as indicated in the trouble shooting section....


If it spraying water, then the pump is ok. The valve at the bottom of the soap bottle may be bad. Also when you turn the smart mix vavle, does it turn easily or hard, if hard, try spraying some furniture polish around the knob and turn it to work in in, if it turns all of the way around and doesn't stop where it is supposed to, then the knob or the top under the knob is broken.

Can't get water to spray out of the hand tool nozzle


When you attach the main suction hose to the front of the machine, you also have to connect the soultion hose to a valve located on the side of the machine. When the machine is running, take a small screwdriver and depress the centre of this valve. You should get a spray of water out of the valve which will confirm the valve and pump is working. Now, connect the small solution hose, making sure you push it on all the way. When you pull the trigger on the handle of the hose, you should get spray. If it does not, you may have a plugged nozzle sprayer.

Sprays soap, but not water


My Bissell is quite fussy. Sometimes I have to wiggle and push down the tank before the water will start to flow. The water doesn't flow properly if the soap container is low - I fill it with water when rinsing. It has a viewport with a red cross that turns when the water flows. Sometimes just removing that and the white filter below (and putting them back) makes it go. Mine is easy to take apart - 6 screws in the base unit and the top comes off. There are two water tubes going into the handle hinge under where the water tank goes - very easily squished or damaged. Last time the water stopped flowing, I ran it with the cover off and just fiddled around with the tubes and away it went. Maybe it is spraying soap only. The water flows up through the handle to the finger valve and heater. Some people say the heater in the upright/handle gets plugged. I haven't had that apart, but it should be easy to bypass the heater.
