Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

My Bissell proheat carpet cleaner (this is my second one because the first one stopped working as well) won't dispense water, cleaner, or suck anything up. The motor turns on but that's about it. It is probably about four years old but since I only clean my carpets perhaps twice a year, it really has not been used that often. I think it should last longer than a handful of cleanings.

I'm not a big fan of Bissell products to begin with, but I can tell you from many, many years of experience that, far and away, the most common cause of problems with any of the carpet shampooer, steam cleaners, etc., is that they are stored with unused materials in the tanks and hoses. They are seldom cleaned, rinsed, or receive any type of cleaning before being put in the closet to be pulled out sometime in the future, with the very next attempt at application of the shampoo, or cleaner or whatever is still in the tank, not happening, because the hoses are plugged with a gelatin like substance. This is, in reality, what happens to many of the shampoos on the market, when they are left unattended for long periods of time. You haven't mentioned your cleaning, maintenance procedures concerning the unit, so I have no way of knowing just what may be causing your product, however, I think if I were you, and not using something more than twice a year, I think I'd look into renting a cleaning unit, rather than owning one.

SOURCE: bissell carpet cleaner won't spray water or cleaner

If I may! In most cases the heater is clogged. It might be clogged with soap that has harden over time. You need to take the handle apart. You will see a metal box(thats the heater) besides the wires there are two tubes connected to the heater. remove the tubes but label or watch which tube goes where. now turn the heater upside down. there are 6 screws on the side and 1 in the middle. remove them carefully. the 6 on the side have a small gaskets under them..you don't want to lose them. the 1 in the middle has no gasket, now the bottom plate of the heater can be taken off (there is a gasket with that plate ...be careful . you will now see the long channels inside the heater and need to clean it. the holes where the tubes where connected have to be clean also but carefully. the metal is soft.so it bends. now put it all back. hope this helps. if you want to keep this from happening.the best way is to run clear water after you are done.this will remove any soap in the machine which will harden after the machine drys out. hope I helped .

and to mr. reddevil6 I am learning lots from you. Thanks
