The black base that the bottle sits in is broke. You can use hot glue to replace the bottle. I would suggest buying a new tank from hoover because the style of tank you have has a known design flaw. They have redesigned the tank to be stronger. You could trying calling the Hoover company and complaining. I know that has worked in the past.

Gear oil change. how much oil


Each gear case has two plugs - an upper, and lower. Take both plugs out and fill from the bottom till lube starts to come out the top plug. Do not fill from the top plug as an air bubble may prevent the case from getting filled completely. Gear lube is usually sold in a squeeze bottle or there's pumps available. If it takes more than one bottle, simply switch bottles, or put your finger over the hole till you get the lower plug back in. In colder climates it's best to change the lube each fall. Inspect the drained lube (old lube) for water. Water will either settle to the bottom and come out first or the lube will have a yellowish color. If there's water present - have the seals checked/replaced before refilling. Sometimes it's simply replacing the seal around the plugs. Do not let water in the lower unit freeze, as it can crack the Aluminum casing. Smaller engines might take a pint, and larger take a quart - but have extra on hand and make sure it comes out the top hole. Also check for drip spots on the floor if stored.

Tip

No water/detergent coming out of vac/cleaner


If you are having any trouble getting the detergent or water to come out of your vac then this could be down to one of a couple of things.

Now if the vac is new then the chances are you have not held the button down for long enough to allow the water/detergent to flow through the vac so hold the button down for a couple of minutes and it will eventually come out.

Now if you have used this before and it is no longer working then you have got a blockage problem.
The first thing you need to do is tip the vac up on its back and have a good look at where the water/detergent comes out of, you should see several little jets running along the bottom of the vac right at the front, now what you need to do is get a long pin and give all of these little jets a good poke with a long needle make sure you do this to all of the jets.

Once you have done this sit it back up right and give it a try, you may need to hold the trigger down for 2 or 3 min to let the water/detergent work its way through the vac.

If how ever it still dont work then empty the detergent/water bottle and fill it with hot but not boiling water and add a couple of table spoons of salt now put the bottle back on the vac and leave it for 3 or 4 min then switch is on and hold the button down again for 2 or 3min. Now the hot water and the salt should have broke down any build up of gel that the detergent has turned into over time.

Repeat this process 2 or 3 times to give it chance to work its way around the vac.
After doing this check the jets again and poke with a needle as the chances are the blockage has now moved and is by the jets, now give it another try.

If it still dont work then the blockage must be quite bad what you now need to do is unplug the vac and lie it on its back now if you have a good look at where the jets are you will see several screws holding the bottom part of the vac to the top part.
All you need to do is undo these screws and remember where each screw came from in case they are different sizes now once you have the screws out the bottom should come away form the top, be carefull here as the hose that goes to the jets will need pulling off once you have pulled this off the bottom should come away no problems.

Now with the bottom off you can follow the way the water/detergent goes so if you follow it from the jets you should see the hose that carries the water/detergent, so what you now need to do is follow this hose and keep giving it a good squeeze where ever you see water backed up keep squeezing it all the way along as far as you can.
You may see the blockage if you do just give it a good squeeze where the blockage is to break up the gel blockage, if you see no blockage then keep reading on. if how ever you have found the blockage then make sure you squeeze it out as much as you can .

Now put everything back together, if you found the blockage you should find that filling the water/detergent bottle with hot but not boiling water should now get you up and running just keep and eye on the jets until the blockage you found has past out the jets.

Now if you never found the blockage empty the water/detergent bottle and check where the water comes out of the bottle into the vac you should be abe to press it and see if the water flow freely out of the bottle. if it does then you need to check the part of the vac where this bottle attaches to, their should be some sort of filter where this bottle fits so have a look their and clean with a pin if blocked.
If you find no blockage then try again with the hot water to rule out 100% blockage being the problem. if you have checked and their is no blockage then this would indicate a problem with the pump or a blockage in the pump, now as the pump is not a serviceable part you cant take it apart and clean it so the only option you have is keep trying with hot water or replace pump( check any warranty before you do any work yourself)

The hot salty water should work but make take several tries until it breaks down the gel build up.

Now what they should have told you when you purchased your machine is that after every use empty the detergent bottle and fill with clean warm water and then let this run through your cleaner, you need to do this as if you leave the detergent in the bottle and leave it in the pipes inside the vac then what happens is that over time the detergent turns to a gel so making sure the detergent is gone will guarantee the vac will work the next time you want to use it

The cap will not come off of the tank


The black thing that looks like a sports bottle top has a screen at one end to filter the solution. It gets tightly wedged into the solution bottle - pry it out (carefully). You could try a knife to (very carefully) pry it loose from the solution tank. Just don't cut yourself or deform the tank top.

Make sure there is liquid in both the Tank-in-Tank and the SmartMix Bottle and check for spray through the upholstery hose. If the hose does not spray please check the following:

- Remove the belt access door and inspect the pump belt to ensure it is not broken, worn or stretched. You may also check the belt by turning on the power and watching the brush on the bottom of the machine. If the brush rotates the belt is not broken.
- Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the SmartMix Cap Insert (some o-rings are detachable and need to fit over the straw; others are molded to the cap).
- Check for liquid in the base of the machine where the SmartMix Bottle sits (SmartMix Reservoir). If there is no liquid in the reservoir, the neck on the SmartMix Bottle may be undersized, the cap will not make proper contact with the unit and the smart mix bottle will need to be replaced.
- Check for the black or red tank gasket on the SmartMix Bottle Cap and on the bottom of the Tank-in-Tank Assembly. If gasket is lodged in base of unit or has been lost, reattach gasket on auto-load or order new gasket if appropriate.
- Check the valves on the bottoms of the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle to make sure water/solution will come through when the "x" valve is depressed. Bladder or SmartMix bottle may be empty or the valve may be blocked internally.
- Check if the small rounded window tabs on the top edge of the Floor Nozzle Window are locked in their mating slots on the base of the machine and not inadvertently lifting the tank up out of place.

I have the Bissell heat pro 2x 8920 and the water doesn't come out. The soap just mixes with water tank and the carpet stays dry


Check to ensure there is liquid in the water tank and the formula bottle.

Note: This machine will spray with liquid in the Water tank only if the machine is set to the Water Rinse setting. On any other setting, you need to have liquid in the formula tank as well.

If no: add liquid to the Water tank and the Formula tank.
If yes: check each of the following....

- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly.
- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
-If everything is seated and attached properly, prime the machine by turning off the power, waiting one minute, and then turning the power back on and depressing the trigger on the handle.
- If priming the unit fails to fix the problem, remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.
If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:

REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

Detergent bottle keeps falling off, wont stay put and clean water isn't emptying at all


The tank assembly needs to be replaced. Keep your tank handle. The other problem is your water not dispensing. There are electric solenoids and a pump that control dispensing soap and water. Take it to a repair shop for complete diagnosis before you replace the tank. The new tank is better, both soap and water tanks are in one assembly

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.


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.

Smartmix bottle


The cap and insert at the bottom of the bottle may need to be replaced, or you could have a problem with the smart mix asm. You would have to remove the top cover to get to it. Does the smart mix knob stop where it is supposed to or does it go all of the way around, if it does, then the stop on the knob is broken.

Isn't spraying


Mine does that, too. Pushing down and wiggling the tank usually gets it going. Also, it doesn't seem to work when the soap bottle is low, even when the soap is turned off. I fill the bottle with water. It is easy to take the top off. Mine has just 6 screws. Then you can see all the tubing and parts. For example, you can unclip the nozzles and see if water flows. Try blowing through the nozzle to see if it is plugged. Some people say the heating unit in the handle plugs up, particularly if you put soap in the water tank. I haven't dealt with this, but it should be easy to open the handle and bypass the heating unit.
