Question about Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum
Water will come - and not getting sucked back in strongly enought. Then water will spray out....then it does for about 3 minutes, only to leave carpet soggy, and not **** it up When I shut if off - and then turn on - it sometimes works again....
I think we bought a 'lemon'. When I called the company about this (after 3 uses ) they said the thin water incoming tube on side of the machine must be clogged (! after 3 uses ? - come on this is our 3rd Bisell and none did that ...)- and to bring it to a service center.
Since we live in a middle of nowhere I don;t have to time to schlep the heavy machine 3 hour round trip anywhere.
Thinking 2x about ever buying a Bissell steam cleaner again after this experience.
The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.
