BTW...if it is not a crack...it could be the seal at the bottom of the holding tank. Mine has a lil rubber seal and pin. Fill the tank part way, use your finger to play with that pin n seal over the sink...see if you can find a position where the water stops dripping out. I have to do that when I fill my tank...free fix wihtout having to spend 30-50 on a replacment tank

    I also see Bissell serves the seal separately (a good thing)http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/Bissell...

    E6000...best self leveling sealant I know of ...cost around 5.00 can be purchased at Michaels or Hobby Lobby or try your local WalMart (save on gas n time-call first). NOTE:if you cannot access interior of tank...use a long straw to flow the glue down. McDonalds has wider straws than normal that work nice for this Will self level just make sure you have the tank at the right angel. On exterior scuff it and apply a coat of E6000 as well. Also make sure interior is dry and free of cleaning solution residue Walmart Amazing 6000 Craft Glue 2 oz

How do i get my bissell to stop leaking water?


The rubber gasket on the bottom of the 2-in-1 tank is probably lodged in the base of the unit. It should be connected to the nozzle on the bottom of the 2-in-1 tank. You can pull it out of the base and reattach it to the tank. This should stop it from leaking. The formula tank on the back has the same gasket so you can pull that out and see how it should fit on. Hope that helps.

How do you put the soultion in and how do you use it


Here is link to the users manual:


http://www.bissell.com/assets/0/132/134/228/14489708-7c37-4678-a90a-79e6825ef104.pdf

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.

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.

Check to ensure there is liquid in the water tank and the formula bottle.
Note: This machine will spray with liquid in the Water tank only if the machine is set to the Water Rinse setting. On any other setting, you need to have liquid in the formula tank as well.

If no: add liquid to the Water tank and the Formula tank.
If yes: check each of the following....

- 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.
- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine.

THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
-If everything is seated and attached properly, prime the machine by turning off the power, waiting one minute, and then turning the power back on and depressing the trigger on the handle.
- If priming the unit fails to fix the problem, 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:

• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse

Pressing the handle to release cleaning solution does nothing. The cleaning solution does not come out. Carpet is dry.

*Do not boil or microwave water as it can
destroy the Bladder.
5.
Replace the top of the Tank by matching the lid
and tank edges. Handle must be in the forward
position in order to replace lid. Rotate the handle
to the carrying position to latch the lid.
Note: Remember to secure the lid and test to
make sure it is secure before picking up the Tank.
6.
Place tank into machine base, seating firmly in place.
Rotate tank handle back into latched position. Bring
machine handle back into upright position.
