Question about Bissell 1400 Little Green Pro Canister Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

Leaks out the bottom

First time using it and it is leaving a mess everywhere. I'm thinking it wasn't worth the money and will probably return it--
It sprays and vacuums, but it doesn't go into the collection tank, it just leaks out the bottom

How do you remove the lower handle?


Check the clean water holding tank. I had this problem and found that was a crack near the outlet on the bottom of the tank. I replaced the tank and resolved the problem. I have taken this machine apart several times, if the tank is not the problem with yours, check the water tube.

I have a bissell steam and sweep. when I am finished using it water still leaks from the bottom leaving water?


  • Drain the tank after each use.
  • It either has no shut off valve or a broken one when not in use.
  • If its new return it and see if new one leaks or not.

My Bissell proheat2x leaks water from bottom of machine, if you have the water tank full and cleaner and leave it sit it drains out onto the floor, it leaks when you are using it to, is this a seal or...


Nope, not a seal problem, just natural good old fashioned natural gravity. I know it doesn\'t take long for it to start leaking after use but Bissell covers this in the manual. Thoroughly clean the unit, run clean rinse water through every cycle and empty all tanks and cavities after use. Do not leave water in any of the tanks when not in use. What doesn\'t leak on your floor (which doesn\'t take long) could cause permanent blockages in the lines. It\'s a pain, I know, but I use the garage or back deck to park and prep mine after use.

Hello, I was vaccuming around the house i accidently **** some water out of my dog water bowl.Now it dont want turn on?


Water and electricity don't mix, so you probably burnt out the motor. There's a possibility that a thorough cleaning with a motor cleaning spray that leaves no residue will bring it back to life, but I think you will need to replace it.

I was vacuuming with bissell 3750-T and I shut it off and went to turn it back on and will not start or do anything, what is wrong?


If you can't smell burning then it's probably a broken power switch or the vacuum got too hot and the thermal overload protection has tripped. Try leaving it off for 15-30 minutes and try it again. The thermal overload will reset itself during this time and it should work again.

In the meantime, make sure you have power to the vacuum, check for any blockages and check that the rollers in the cleaning head will turn by hand. Also, give your filters a clean. Any of these could cause the vacuum to overheat.

If you've already done this and/or power doesn't return after 15-30 minutes, I would start by checking the switch.

A couple of questions . . .

1. Does the power switch feel "normal" - basically does it have a positive feel when you switch on and off?
2. How long had you been using the vacuum before it stopped working?

Water is leaking out of the upholstery cleaner


Might the button be stuck a bit? We had this problem and rinsed the brushes out and cleaned the connector area with a damp paper towel. Had to push the button in and out several times to be sure it wasn't sticking. Also, when the hose is docked found it tended to hit the docking station and would spray everywhere! Had to turn around the hose w/ the button so it would stop spraying everywhere. Hope this helps.
