    The cap to my soap dispenser has never fit tightly and at times released all the cleanser onto my floor. Now I cannot get any water to dispense onto the floor. (My livingroom rug seems to be ruined as a result the all the cleanser being dispensed all at once).

    Machine suddenly stopped releasing cleaning solution. It won't dispense any while using the upholstery attachment or the floor cleaner.

    Water/solution comes out of hand unit but not bottom unit. Suction works on bottom part but no liquid comes out.

    I have the same problem, yet the plunger on the soap dispenser opens fine.

    I get solution from the hand held, suction but no solution on the bottom. I am sure the directional flap is positioned correctly as well.

Check the nozzle at the bottom of the soap dispensor, is the seal on it? and can you push the plunger so that it opens up, other wise replace the cap and vavle asm part # 2101795 .

I have a Bissell ProHeat Turbo 2x, it isn't mixing the water & cleaning solution and isn't spraying. What do I do?


Isn't Spraying:
Possible Problems->Solutions
-Water Tank may be empty-> Fill Heavy duty bladder with hot tap water.
-Formula Tank might be empty-> Fill with Bissell fiber cleansing formula for cleaning.
-Tanks may not be seated completely-> Turn power off and reset the tanks.
-Pump may have lost prime-> Turn power off, then on again, wait one minute then depress the trigger

but real quick, heres the essentials:


Fill the SmartMix/formula tank

Lift the formula tank up and out of the machine base.

Fill the formula tank

by first unscrewing the cap

and insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas

to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your

machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the

cap and insert. Place formula tank into the slot in the

back of the machine for a snug fit.

2b.



If using the BISSELL 3X Concentrated Fiber Cleansing

Formula: Add 3 capfuls of 3X Concentrated Fiber

Cleansing formula to the formula tank, and then fill

with warm water to the line.

Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning

of red gromment and straw insert.

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x cleaner which has worked perfectly on every occasion. Today I filled the machine as usual with water and formula and switched on, the motor ran, the lights were on and the...


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- 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.
- 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. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- 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.

If these suggestions do not resolve the issue contact BISSELL Consumer Services.
