Question about Bissell Vacuums
Saw a used Bissell pro heat 7900 where do I find the tanks to fill and where is the disposal tank
The main water tank is two staged; you put clean water in and the flexible bladder allows the machine's pickup suction to fill. This removes the need for two tanks (but it's harder to clean out the suction tank area). Just remember to clean the filters each use. There's one on the underneath of the clean water tank cap and one under the FLOW INDICATOR cap. You may need to get a User's Guide. Try calling the Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 Hope that helps.

maybe there's not enough vacuum or it hasn't been primed enough. I have a proheat that drove me crazy till I started leaving the heat switch on. I get wads of carpet fiber that mat around brush and spit out on the carpet, so I frequently remove them. I'm just wondering if after you empty the water, it may not have built up the suction. Good luck! hope this may be helpful

I haven't had this particular issue (yet... knock on wood!) with my Bissell, but remember that the shampoo will not dispense with no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue because sometimes you think it has water but it doesn't) or water not flowing through the machine due to clogged sprayers-- another issue-- but since you're getting water on the floor that is not your issue-- or with the handle locked in position. If none of that fixes it, try removing the shampoo container, stand over a sink, and push your finger up inside the grommet where the shampoo container mates with the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out. If it doesn't, unscrew the grommet (holding the container upside down of course so the shampoo doesn't gush out) and use your finger and running water to try and the grommet cleaned out.
If this isn't helping, it may be that your soap pump or soap dispensing trigger switch are defective.

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.

That means that you need to replace the pump belt. Here is the belt you
need and a manual you can view:

Fill the SmartMix/formula tank
Lift the formula tank up and out of the machine base.
Fill the formula tank
by first unscrewing the cap
and insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas
to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your
machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the
cap and insert. Place formula tank into the slot in the
back of the machine for a snug fit.
If using the BISSELL 3X Concentrated Fiber Cleansing
Formula: Add 3 capfuls of 3X Concentrated Fiber
Cleansing formula to the formula tank, and then fill
with warm water to the line.
Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning
of red gromment and straw insert.
Good luck and thanks for using FIXYA
