The trigger has tabs on each side that snap into slots in the handle so that the trigger pivots in the slots. The slots where the trigger pivots may have broken, if so the trigger will not push the valve open and allow the water flow. If the tabs are broken you will need to replace the upper handle. If you supply me with your model number I will determine the proper part for your model.

My hoover steamvac trigger won't spray


Remover the upper handle assembly and check the linkage (inside the upper handle) where it connects to the button/trigger assembly in the handle grip. This may have detached or the trigger may be loose from its mount in the handle. Reattach or replace the broken part.

Bissell proheat used does not put out water


The spring your talking about goes where the trigger switch is. You need to dismantle the entire unit to access this, remove 6 screws on hood, two main handle screws, two tool caddy screws and finally two lower back housing screws. Removed top handle and gently open unit up

Assembling a steam vac handle part


when the machine comes new the way it is installed is to put the upper handle on the lower handle, install the bolts & nuts (tighten) and then to pull the trigger and press the surge button (if this model has one). you will feel them snap together. the clips on the rods should be at 90 degree's from each other. one will be a u type channel and the other a v type and will connect.

Carpet steamer continually sprays water/cleaner. Can't stop it!


This is a solution for the Bissell Pro Heat, although it may apply to other Bissell steam cleaners as well. This is for the problem of the cleaning solution continually spraying without stop.

I found a quick and simple solution to this problem.

This problem occurs because the valve that allows the solution to flow gets "sticky" and will not close. The valve is engaged by the trigger mechanism in the handle. Squeezing the trigger pushes downward on the valve's plunger, but the spring in the valve that is meant to push the plunger back up to the closed position is not capable of doing so.

Here's the solution:

This valve is white and resides about half way down the vertical handle portion of the cleaner. To get to it, unscrew the 2 black screws that hold the top part of the handle to the bottom part. These are the same screws that you used for assembling the cleaner when you first bought it. Pull the top portion of the handle up and it should slide out.

Now, looking down into the handle body of the remaining portion of the handle, you'll see the top of the white valve. If you push down on the top of the valve (like the trigger mechanism in the top part of the handle you just removed does) it may go down some, but it probably won't go back up by itself like it should.

I found that lubricating this plunger with dish soap was the trick. If you can't get enough access to the valve to do this, you can remove the seven phillips head screws in the lower portion of the handle and pry it apart. I did this. I even took the valve out and put soap around the plunger and into the valve itself. I worked it up and down until it had a quick and positive open/close action.

Reassemble and you should be good to go. You'll notice that the trigger now has a more positive feel to it. I hope this helps.

If the trigger is loose, then the part that it sits in(inside the handle) is broke, you will have to replace the handle asm. or maybe just the handle piece itself.
You order it here for $17.00+ s/h http://vacuumsuperstore.com/F5903.html

Foot Pedal was knocked out of alignment


You will have to take the top loose so you can put the handle release in its place. It probably isn't in the right place, either that or a piece of it broke off and it needs to be replaced.

I'm not sure what your referring too, but Here is how it works. The trigger is snapped into two "rocker retainers" in the handle. when you pull on the trigger, it rocks and pushes on a rod that goes down to another shorter rod and that one pushes on the valve that releases the solution. A common problem was that the "rocker retainers" would break off and the trigger would not push on the first rod so the machine would not release solution. You will have to replace the handle half (called a trigger guard). The trigger itself has two plastic "springs" molded into it. This is all one piece with the trigger and they don't usually break. Also, when you remove and replace the handle, you have to pull the trigger to re-engage the two rods togeather or the machine will constantly spray solution. I hope this helps.

Bissel Proheat Carpet cleaner


My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.
