Bissell cleanview carpet cleaner

There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be.
If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.

Not dispersing water all I need is a manual.

I had the same prob. If you have water/soap solution at the upholstery handle, and no water/soap at the front jets, then the jets are clogged. remove the water tank, and you'll see the 2 jets (mine are red) at the front of the machine. Carefully release thw jets by squeezing the 2 tabs on top and lift out. Remove the hose that goes to the jet and clean out the jet (I used a toothpick) and rinse well. I also flushed out the system (hoses) by leaving off the jets and replacing the tanks (water and soap) I filled the soap tank with water too. Then I turned on the machine and let it run for a few minutes (I taped open the lever on the handle) to make it easy on me. Then replace the jets where you took them out, and all should be fine now. I suggest that when your finished using you machine to do your carpets, rinse out the lines with water in both tanks, to prevent soap from drying in the hoses.

My first time using this..I just want to know where the water goes and where the soap goes..I don't have directions..I was looking for the directions on here but don't see it.. This is a bissell proheat...


okay the under the lid of the big tank has a place for regular hot water theres a flexible inner bladder inside the main tank- fill that with hot water. When your shampooing the dirty water fills in around it, also between the back wheels theres where the resolve/bissell detergent goes. we use regular washing machine liquid diluted 50/50 in the soap dispenser , its cheaper and does the same thing..also, if you have pets, the bissels have a brush roller mechanism that gets clogged with pet hair quickly and will self destruct, every few rows stop and see how much pet hair is around those rollers and remove it.

My bissell proheat 2 soap disspencer dumps soap to fast

1699 Series - Had it fixed twice already. Everytime we go to use it, the sprayer will not work. It has cost us $50.00 each time to have it fixed. This time the place told us just to get rid of it, as this is a continueus issue. It has to do with the heating element lines getting clog up.

Can you et us some instructions to fix it ourselves. Hat to throw all this money down the drain.

Is it possible to get a pictorial view of the internal parts.
