Question about Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum
I just replaced the punp in a bissell pro heat steam cleaner. I did a room no problem. I stopped it. Started another room no soap no water and that little red thing on top barly spins, the hand attachement spits out water for about 5-10 seconds. I took apart again looked for crimps in the hoses seemed fine. I read about priming the pump I did that, worked okay... now i dont think the water is comming out fast enough, it spray out well,when I refill the solution and start it up again the soap is gone in seconds...when I had it apart I sucked a blew the hoses inside, blew off the jet sprays... is there pressure build up, no pressure

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

SOURCE: Pump prime lost
The Bissell 1697 is a temperamental machine. Loosing prime is the biggest problem. I have found that the tanks and top cover are not designed well. The connecting plug on the bottom of the tank does not set deep enough into the female receptacle. When the plastic starts to warp and it will, two things happen. First the push valve on the male side (tank) may not open and secondly, you get air leaks.
The pump wants to pump water with high mass and not air. Once the air purges, it will build pressure. You can watch the lines with the top open and identify where the air is coming from. 90% of the time it is the bottom of the tank fitting.
The fix is to put a spacer under the metal plate holding the male (tank) receptacle in place. A rubber gasket or O-Ring that spaces the plate down about 3/32". The plate must have the holes beveled to recieve flat head screws so they dont stick down and hold the tank off. Use silicon seal. Plate should protrude from the bottom of the tank surface slightly when you are through.
Slipping drive belt to the pump is the second biggest problem. Also if you take the top off, every thing has to go back in place exactly or the top will not fit correctly. Hose routing is critical.
Nozzle's will plug in a heart beat so keep the tank water clean. Make sure you turn the mixture valve to water only and purge the system with water prior to quiting.
One further thing, the vac connections to the tank are crappy. I have to use a foam seal glued to the tank top to mate with the two existing gaskets on the body. Here again the plastic warps and things start not fitting properly.
Most of the problems are related to plastic warping as usual on modern cheap ****.

First is the smart mix valve turning like it should? If it is then replace the soap dispensor. Also is the gasket on the valve at the bottom of the bottle?

I found that mine wouldn't suck up the water because the brushes underneath had tons of dog fur behind them. Don't forget to vacuum before using!

The detergent will have to be poured directly into the water tank by using the measuring cup that is attached to the back side of this unit. I have a manual for you that you can print out as well.
