Question about Bissell ProHeat Turbo Deep Cleaner Upright Steam Vacuum
My Bissell proheat clearview carpet cleaner stopped spraying water and cleaner. I replaced the pump but it still does not work. It is only about a couple of years old
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

Mine wouldn't spray water...the hand tool did... I took it outside and sprayed the whole bottom (not the motor) with a water hoes...Workes fine again. I guess it was clogged up somewhere. I have to admit that I didn't clean it after each use and I have dogs. Good Luck!

You didn't give the model number, when you put the lid back on, the piston needs to be on the bottom on the mix valve knob, and in the water only position when you push it down. If it turns ok, then it should be ok. The heater could be clogged, water won't spray if it is. Is the seal on the bottom of the tank and not in the hole in the base where the tank sits.

Cleaned heater according to Geterdun's instructions (great detailed instructions) AND found belt in side compartment had come off and was stuck in the little red plastic piece. Had to go underneath and unscrew little red piece to loosen belt. Rebelted it and it works GREAT!.
