Smart mix plunger bissell 1699

Unit would not dispense water or cleaner. After taking the unit apart twice I found the heater was blocked. In doing this the plunger fell off. I was able to put it back in place but I must be positioning the plunger wrong. I get water but no matter what position I turn the know no cleaner will dispense.

    I have the same problem with 2 bissells. Even bought a new pump and that did not fix problem. Seems as if the water from tank is not getting to pump and the lines are open. I ready to throught these two in the trash and buy a Hoover.

Water comes out the accessory hose but not the floor cleaner


I had the same problem and the heater ports were clogged. I took apart the top unit and cleaned the ports with miniature bottle brushes used to clean spray painting equipment (purchased at Harbor Freight for $4). Reassembled and the unit worked fine.

Water and cleaner dispenses from handheld attachment only


He could be right but most of the time when it doesn't dispense water and cleaner it means that the pump belt is worn and needs to be replaced. I would try that first (only $4.99) before I spent $100. Here is the pump bet you need, it comes with instructions:

Bissell proheat, not sure of model number no water will dispense


Ran in to similar issue except mine would not spray soap or solution through the floor cleaner but would work through the upolstry cleaner.

I found that there were 2 problems as follows:

1) The heater was clogged with mineral deposits and old soap that I had not cleaned out on a previous use.

2) The Valve that attached to the trigger sticks. (I am currently looking for a new valve)

Since you have soap and no water I your problem probably exists in the bottom of the unit. There are 6 screws to take off the cover.

You will see a hose that come from the soap despenser. It leads to the pump which is located in the front left corner of the unit. You can also trace the water hosed in and out of this pump. Since the hoses are clear you should be able to see any clogg. There is a hose that leads up the handle to the valve and then a hose that comes back down the handle (through the wheel opening) The hose that comes back down from the handel leads to a splitter which devides the output to the two jets.

Once it is apart it is pretty simple.

Hope this helps!!

Make sure that the piston on the bottom of the smart mix valve is in the water only position.(needs be be on the knob and not sitting in the hole). With the top off, it is easier if you have a block of wood or something under the base to hold it up. Other wise it drops down and the screws can't grap the base. Also make sure all hoses aren't being pinched.

I have a 1699 proheat upright steam cleaner and the water is not dispensing on the carpet but the brush is turning


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.
