SOURCE: hi my bissel proheat 2 will not shoot out water

I had this problem, too. My machine is only a year old, so I was hoping it wasn't the pump already. I called the help line, and surprise - no help. They recommended a fix-it place, but the fix-it guy wouldn't help me over the phone. So I fiddled around with it and found the problem - the plug thingy underneath the main tank. The spring mechanism inside it was stuck, preventing any water from going thru it.

Lift out the main tank in the front and bring it to the sink. Feel inside the plug underneath. While holding the tank upright over the sink, push inside the plug. Water should squirt out the bottom of the plug. If it doesn't, turn the tank over, unscrew the plug, and try pushing the inside of it. It is spring-loaded like a ball-point pen. When I pushed the inside of the plug a few times, screwed it back in, and then put the tank on again, the machine worked like new. If your plug doesn't spring, maybe it needs to be cleaned out or replaced. If a new plug is needed, it probably doesn't cost as much as bringing it in for service. It's a small, simple part, and can probably be ordered online. Good luck!

SOURCE: Unit is seated properly but water/fluid will not

You need to check that the motor drive belt is OK and turning freely to drive the water pump - under the flap on the right side at the front as you look at the front of the Bissell. If this is OK have you filled the cleaning bottle with fluid etc? If so you may have an airlock in the pipe from the bottle to the motor. You can also have a blockage from the pump to the dispenser nozzles and can test this by taking off the top cover and taking the plastic tubes off them to see if water comes out of the tube. You can also do the same for the tube from the tank to the pump to see if water is getting to the pump OK. Also make sure that the mix valve setting (on the left side - looking from the front) is not turned to the off position. This could also be blocked and need cleaning or replacing.

SOURCE: water not dispensing

Check the release valve on bottom of clean water reservoir unscrew if needed, once again if your not sure run hot water in the solution tank through the system to help remove old soap residue and always run hot water through to prevent future problems after cleaning carpet and storing.steve

Bissell 9300 2 x will not pick up water.What is remedy?


First make sure it's putting out enough water. There can be enough water coming out to get the carpet wet but not enough that it picks up much water. This is most often the problem to most machines brought in for repairs. If it's putting out enough water and can't pick it up there has to be something restricting the suction. It could be a clog or something is allowing air to leak restricting suction. Inspect the areas where the suction comes from the machine, through the dirty water tank all the way down to the floor nozzle.

My carpet cleaner wont stop leaking water after cleaning and i need keep vacumning up excess water


The unit works on suction and can develop a syphon if the filters get clogged. There's 2 filters that you should be cleaning after each use. One filter is located under the Flow Inidicator: Unscrew the Flow Indicator Cap to remove it. Lift out the rotor and the filter is under it. Lift out the filter and clean. Reinstall in reverese order. If that didn't help you may want to call Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 Hope that helps.

My Bissel Lift-off Deep Cleaner is not taking up the water from the carpet


I try not to answer questions if I'm not positive of the answer, but I thought I'd give your question an educated guess... With a regular vacuum, if the filter is clogged, the vacuum looses suction. It makes sense, that if your Bissel is otherwise working fine... There's a good chance the filter is the problem. I hope I was of at least some help. Good luck and Merry Christmas, Bill

After we change the bag, it still gives us a red light


Greetings,

The bag full indicator on most vacuum cleaners is not completley fool proof. Most vacuums will just register a loss of suction, and they will then illuminate the bag full indicator, whether or not the bag is full.

If you've changed the bag, and the machine is still indicating a full bag, then this could mean one of two things.

1. Dirty Filter. According to the part diagram for your vacuum, there is a filter underneath of the vacuum cleaner bag (Bissell Part Number
203-1013) that is there to protect anything from getting into the motor. Since the filter is located before the motor, most refer to this as a pre-motor filter. Sometimes if this filter is really dirty, it can cause the vacuum to loose suction, which will also cause the bag full indicator to incorrectly display. Simply clean this filter by running it under warm water, then allow it to completely dry before replacing it in the vacuum. While the filter is out of the vacuum you can turn it back on and test to see if the light is off now that the filter is out. If the light goes off, then you have found the problem! If the bag full indicator is still on, please see the next possible problem.

2. Clog In the Vacuum. If the vacuum was run with a full bag, and when you removed the bag, the bag was completely jammed full, then your vacuum cleaner may be clogged somewhere. When the bag is packed full of dirt, the vacuum continues to try and put more and more dirt in the bag, even if it's full. Sometimes the dirt will even start accumulating inside the hose as it has no other place to go. The first place you should check is the hole that you connect the bag to. Remove the new bag that you installed and examine the hole that the bag connects to inside the vacuum. Can you see anything stuck here? If yes, do your best to try and dislodge it. If you're not able to visibly see anything here, your clog may be inside the hose, or even in the base of the vacuum.

If you have another vacuum cleaner this will really help you in clearing the clog. With the other vacuum, take the suction hose of the good vacuum, and connect it to the hose on your Bissell (still while the bag is removed, and the bag housing door is open). When you connect the hose of the other vacuum, can you hear a difference in the motor? Does the motor start running at a higher pitch when it's connected to your Bissell? If yes, then you've narrowed it down to a clog in your hose. If you can feel suction from the other vacuum through the hole that the bag connects onto, and the good vacuum's motor doesn't change noise when connected to the Bissell, then your clog is in the bottom section of the vacuum. You can sometimes stretch out the hose of the Bissell while the other vacuum is attached, and this will dislodge the clog.

If you don't have another vacuum, simply remove the hose from the Bissell completely. I believe that there maybe 2 screws that hold this hose onto the back of your Bissell, simply remove these two screws, and remove the hose. An easy way you can clear clogs is to take the hose outside, and use a water hose that has a pressurized nozzle on it, and spray down the hose while holding the hose of your Bissell vertically to allow gravity to work its magic. You can also stretch out the hose of the Bissell to get maximum benefit of gravity and the water.

If the clog is in the lower part of the vacuum, it is usually right at the suction port behind the roller brush. This is the most narrow part of the vacuums suction intake in the lower part of the vacuum, and is prone to clogs. Simply remove the four screws on the bottom of your Bissell to remove the bottom plate. Look behind the roller brush to where the suction port is to see if you can see any clogged debris.

If this doesn't help clear your clog, or fix the bag full indicator, I'd really like to try and diagnosis this further with you. Please just use the Clarification Request or add a comment and explain what happend after trying these things I mentioned above. I'll be more then happy to try and assist your further. I really hope that this was helpful to you. If you found this helpful, please be kind and rate my repair by clicking the thumbs up icon in the review.

Thank you very much,

Something is probably clogging up the suction.
Try to snake it out with a coat hanger or similar tool.
Often, especially with shedding pets hair will clog the suction pipes.

ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

Won't extract water from carpet.


Seems the 1950W is now obsolete, cna't even bring up a drawing of it. Usually when the vac. motor is running, then there has to be suction. But if a seal or gaske is missing, then the suction will be lost. So you might check the dirty water tank to make sure there isn't a part missing or out of place. Check this out, it is for a 1950-3:
