The volume formula is what is used to determine the amount of water in a tank
that is length X width X height (depth) that determines the cubic capacity or the tank
now 1 cubicft = 7.48 gallons
so as an example-- a fish tank 3ft X2 ft X 2ft = 12 cubic ft =12 X 7.48 = 89.76 gallons

• Geoff White Dec 15, 2016

In some countries 1 cu ft contains 6.23 gallons

• Bill Boyd Dec 15, 2016

what ever--- the formula to calculate the volume is still the same
some countries have not yet moved to the metric system where there is no problem allowed as it is just the one measure of liters or 1/10 part of liters

but real quick, heres the essentials:

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.

of red gromment and straw insert.

### FHow much solution goes in first?

The tank is labeled. Take the clean/solution tank off the vacuum by lifting it straight up. Unscrew the black cap on the bottom of the tank and remove the bottle insert. Add 8 oz of the Little Green formula (this gets you up to the Formula fill line). Then add hot water to the water fill line. Replace the bottle insert and tighten the black cap. Then replace the clean/solution tank by lining the indentations up with the vertical guides on the left side of the unit and sliding it straight down. Please note that the bottles of the formula come in 32 oz or 64 oz bottles. So you can expect one of the smaller bottles to last 4 fill cycles.

I hope this helps.

Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.

- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.

If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:

REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
â€¢ Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
â€¢ Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
â€¢ Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
â€¢ Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

If these suggestions do not resolve the issue contact BISSELL Consumer Services.

No, it just might need a new pump belt. When the belt is worn it won't dispense water or solution. Here is the belt you need:
