Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x. My machine is in a habit of throwing out water from the bottom of the machine. The suction sounds changes to a higher sound then it starts spraying water from the bottom of the machine right in front of the right wheel. I have done everything I could think of to get it to stop, From making sure the waste tank is empty, but is still sprays water from the underneath of machine. Where it is not supposed to spray it. Almost as it is sucking the water from the clean water reservoir without stopping. It sure makes a mess. Any Ideas?? Please help.

What soap are you using? IT has to be made for carpet cleaners because the suds are supressed in that shampoo.

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?

SOURCE: Bissell ProHeat Carpet Steam Cleaner stopped spraying.

The problem was a clogged heating unit which is located in the lower handle. There are two clear hoses going up the inside of the left leg of the lower handle that go to the heater and to the in-line water switch all within the lower handle. I unplugged the metal heating unit water lines and electrical connections (label the connections as you take them apart if you have a hard time remembering things...there were seven connection in all be it water and/or electrical). Removed the heat unit out and then removed the 6 screws holding the heater cover. Inside was a white powdery pasty debris (lime deposit ?) and the water path was clearly blocked in four different places. I cleansed the water trough with a little water and soft toothbrush and several toothpicks then reassembled. If you need new washers go to Orchard or ACE hardware. Take the old rubber washers(they are red) with you for comparison. I didn't need new washers...I just gently cleansed them. I immediately ran clear water through the machine and actually cleaned the carpet with a water rinse only. Will go back and finish the carpet the right way tomorrow. I had only used my machine three times before this happend over a three year period. A friend told me to always rinse it two maybe three times with clear water after using it and before storage. This took me exactly 42 minutes to disassembly and reassemble. Cost savings is several hundred dollars since I have a 5 bdrm house and would need a professional cleaner to do the small dirty traffic lanes all around the house.

Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X Clean Shot will not let water put from tank?


I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I don't know if this will work with your unit... but I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying something else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

My bissell proheat 2x wont vacuum up water


There is a float (usually looks like a red ball) that rises up if water is in danger of getting to the motor. Sometimes they stick.. Give it a poke to free it up.

All the best,
