Re: shampooer tank not working

Most times there is a problem with the cap and insert at the bottom of the tank, part #2036675. Either that or the tank isn't sitting flush and down all of the way, leaving a gap. If this is less then 1 year, then it is under warranty.

My Bissell proheat carpet cleaner (this is my second one because the first one stopped working as well) won't dispense water, cleaner, or suck anything up. The motor turns on but that's about it. It is...

I'm not a big fan of Bissell products to begin with, but I can tell you from many, many years of experience that, far and away, the most common cause of problems with any of the carpet shampooer, steam cleaners, etc., is that they are stored with unused materials in the tanks and hoses. They are seldom cleaned, rinsed, or receive any type of cleaning before being put in the closet to be pulled out sometime in the future, with the very next attempt at application of the shampoo, or cleaner or whatever is still in the tank, not happening, because the hoses are plugged with a gelatin like substance. This is, in reality, what happens to many of the shampoos on the market, when they are left unattended for long periods of time. You haven't mentioned your cleaning, maintenance procedures concerning the unit, so I have no way of knowing just what may be causing your product, however, I think if I were you, and not using something more than twice a year, I think I'd look into renting a cleaning unit, rather than owning one.

I shampooed my carpet, loaded clean water twice and added the cleaning solution. Then it dawned on me, the carpet is wet and there is not dirty water return. What am I doing wrong?

Look for a place where the dirty water reservoir is not sealed. There is air being sucked in somewhere else instead of the bottom where it's supposed to **** the water.

I have a blue bissell preheat 2x. While shampooing it will start to leak dirty water. When i'm done shampooing my carpets look even more filthy then when I began. Not sure why this is happening besides...

You should drain the dirty water, you should find where it is stock then drain it. If there's some leak, seal it with an epoxy. Thoroughly clean the inside and you will find there's a stock of old shampoo which causes water to become dirt.
I hope my advice help you.

Bissell Pro heat 2x the shampoo tank empties out

the o-ring is likely dislodged on the screw on cap

personally I would recommend just filling the soap container with water and a little bit of white vinegar instead of the detergent. You won't leave soap residue in your carpet that way.

Will not **** up shampoo

It sounds like a suction problem. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool use). It is a small red filter, about 1 inch square, with a little door on it. Flip open the door and you will probably find it is clogged with hair, carpet fibre, etc.. Clean it out and your suction problem will hopefully be solved.
