SOURCE: Bissel Proheat Carpet cleaner

My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. petedcurtis@gmail.com

SOURCE: I used my new proheat 2x steam cleaner the first

You may have mislaid a piece when you took your Bissell apart to clean it after using it the first time.

I experimented with mine to try and reproduce your issue. On the bottom of the water tank, there are two pieces that can be removed from it. One of them looks like a black plug at one end, with a red rubber flange piece on the other end. If you push your finger inside the red rubber piece, you can feel a spring move up and down. This is the first piece you place on the bottom of the water tank. I suspect you have this piece, because if you didn't, water would gush out of the water tank as soon as you turned it over after filling it.

The other piece, which is the one I think you may have have mislaid, is a larger black, plastic ring with screw threads. This piece goes over the top of the first plug piece, screws onto the water tank, and holds the plug in place. The words "RECLOSE TIGHTLY" appear on mine. If this piece is missing, the water tank does not sit flat on the base of the Bissell, but kind of flops around, out-of-place, and the unit will not dispense water properly, though it may leak it.

If ithat piece is gone, it should be possible to reorder it. Start here:
http://www.bissell.com/Customer_Service.aspx

If that's not the problem, if you have all the water tank pieces, I wonder if perhaps you unscrewed one black screw to remove the clear front plastic piece from the base of the unit-- the piece through which water is drawn up off the carpet-- to clean it, and didn't get it back into place properly. Make sure the two hooks at the bottom of this piece are inserted, one per side, into the clear plastic side pieces at the bottom. If the hooks are not secured properly, before trying to reinsert them, unscrew the black plastic screw so you don't break the tab. It's easy to miss getting these one of those hooks back in right, but it's important to do that before trying to screw the clear front plastic piece into place.

The brushes on my proheat clean shot 2x are not spinning


Your belt may be broken, check that the belt is still in place.
If the belt is okay, your vacuum may be in the upright position, this vacuum the brushes only spin when the vacuum is in the declined position with the pedal indented.
If the vacuum is not in the upright position, turn off and unplug the vacuum. Check the brushroll for any clogs or foreign objects lodged in there that would trip the safety.
If no clogs or debris, remove the brushroller and check the ends, they may be melted or broken.

Brushes aren't turning on Bissell Proheat 2X and it is almost new.


New or old,flip the vacumm over,and remove the long hair and debris from the roller brushes. If they don't spin after removing any debris,the
belt,that turns the brushes has come off,or the motor is bad. You wil
have to take the bottom section apart,to see what's going on,then.
Good luck.

Brushes stopped spinning


Usually that the belt has broken, turn it over and see if the brush rods turns freely.

There are two belts, one that conects the two rods together, one that drives them. if they both still move together, then it is likely the big belt to the motor. If one moves freely and the other one harder, then likely the belt between the two.

Your manual tells you how to replace them. Can also be found at bissel.com.

Peace

Bissel pro heat cleaner won't expell water -- seems no suction


The reason that it won't expel water is because your pump belt is stretched and worn. You need to replace that belt, it is pretty easy. Here is the belt you need:

No cleaning fluid or water comming out of cleaner


not sure of your model but on most of the bissell's ( except there new style) the belt drives the pump and the brush on the bottom. no pump action then no spray action. you probably need a new belt.

Brush belt is very weak.
























































Brush Belt broken or disconnected. Very weak belt. Colossal engineering mistake by Bissell. Belt itself and its components are under way to much stress for the size they developed to perform their task. For Quality Control to let such an obvious blunder pass can only mean that it was intentional for reasons, Im sure, beneficial to Bissell and costly for the consumer. No telling how many people buy another entire machine when this rubberband of a belt breaks like it was intended. Bissell is not a consideration of myself or anyone I can enlighten.
