SOURCE: I used my new proheat 2x steam cleaner the first

You may have mislaid a piece when you took your Bissell apart to clean it after using it the first time.

I experimented with mine to try and reproduce your issue. On the bottom of the water tank, there are two pieces that can be removed from it. One of them looks like a black plug at one end, with a red rubber flange piece on the other end. If you push your finger inside the red rubber piece, you can feel a spring move up and down. This is the first piece you place on the bottom of the water tank. I suspect you have this piece, because if you didn't, water would gush out of the water tank as soon as you turned it over after filling it.

The other piece, which is the one I think you may have have mislaid, is a larger black, plastic ring with screw threads. This piece goes over the top of the first plug piece, screws onto the water tank, and holds the plug in place. The words "RECLOSE TIGHTLY" appear on mine. If this piece is missing, the water tank does not sit flat on the base of the Bissell, but kind of flops around, out-of-place, and the unit will not dispense water properly, though it may leak it.

If ithat piece is gone, it should be possible to reorder it. Start here:

If that's not the problem, if you have all the water tank pieces, I wonder if perhaps you unscrewed one black screw to remove the clear front plastic piece from the base of the unit-- the piece through which water is drawn up off the carpet-- to clean it, and didn't get it back into place properly. Make sure the two hooks at the bottom of this piece are inserted, one per side, into the clear plastic side pieces at the bottom. If the hooks are not secured properly, before trying to reinsert them, unscrew the black plastic screw so you don't break the tab. It's easy to miss getting these one of those hooks back in right, but it's important to do that before trying to screw the clear front plastic piece into place.

Hoover steam vac F6210 solution tank spring repair


Hi there. The spring on the clean water tank cannot be replaced. A replacement tank would be needed. Follow the link to order a replacement clean water tank for your cleaner. Search Results
The clean water tank does not include the handle but your original handle will fit the replacement tank as well. Hope this was helpful!

Shark Euro Pro Steamer


Hi, you could try the following steps, if you have not done so already. Some of these steps may seem like common sense, but it's for people to forget about checking the least expensive part to replace first, so if some of the steps are those that you have already tried, then feel free just to skip through to the ones you have not tried already.
  1. 1
    Make sure the power cord is plugged firmly into the outlet. The steam mop will not start if it the power cord is loose.
  2. 2
    Check the fuse box or circuit breaker connected to the outlet the steam mop is plugged in to. Replace any blown fuses. Reset any tripped breakers.
  3. 3
    Check the water tank if the Shark steam mop will not produce steam. Add water to the tank if it is empty. The mop will not make steam without water in the tank. To fill the tank, turn the tank cap counterclockwise and lift it up to remove it. Set the filling funnel into the tank opening. Pour water through the funnel into the tank until the water level reaches the "Max" fill line on the tank. Replace the cap.
  4. 4
    Inspect the microfiber cleaning pad if the steam mop is leaving water on the floor. If the microfiber pad is too wet, it will leave water on the floor. Unplug the mop from the wall outlet. Replace the microfiber cleaning pad. To replace the pad, move the latch strips out of the hooks on the mop head. Pull the pad off. Set the new cleaning pad on the mop head. Hook the latch strips onto the hooks on the mop head.
  5. 5
    Use distilled water if the steam mop is leaving white spots on the floor. Hard water may cause white spots to be left.
If none of the above work, then is it something that you purchased recently, and is new? If you did, then it could still be fixed under the manufacturer's warranty regardless of whether or not the original length of the warranty has expired. This could be due to the fact that you have received a product that has some sort of manufacturing fault, rather than it stop working through misuse by the user.
If it's a common problem, then you will more then likely be able to return it to the manufacturer and have it replaced for a new one, let alone repaired :-) - This only applies to whether or not the item is New though :-).
Hope this info helps

No steam comming out of my h2o x5 cleaner


see the causes and proceed with common sense. and fix it. God bless you
If the spray function has quit working on the carpet cleaner, check to make sure there is a full tank of water. If the water level is adequate, check the position of the gasket on the bottom of the water tank assembly. The gasket can become lodged, damaged, or removed. If this has happened, fix the gasket to the proper position according to the user manual, or replace the damaged or missing gasket.

  • 2 Change the belt on a steam cleaner that has inoperable brushes. From time to time, belts on carpet steam cleaners become worn, and you must replace them. If the brushes on your unit have stop moving or do not turn on, you may have a damaged belt.
    Replace a belt at home easily with little expense. Refer to your user's manual for replacement instructions and the part number for purchasing the belt. Remove and replace the belt according to the model of steam cleaner you own. Purchase a new belt at home improvement stores or directly

    My Hoover steam vac dual v clean water and detergent tank leaks water before attached to the vac and during cleaning


    This is a common problem with the earlier models which had a separate soap tank glued to the clean water tank. The plastic was too thin beneath the valve on the clean water side and would develop cracks. You most likely will need a new one piece tank. ( Part # 42272104)

    Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks


    a) make sure that there is not a place for a stair attachment. If
    there is make sure air is not leaking through where the attachment goes
    on because of damaged or misplaced fitting.

    b) some steam vacs leave water behind them and **** up in front of
    them. If you just walked forwad with the steam vac nothing would be
    sucked into the tank.

    c) try taking your finger off the trigger and using the steam vac. If
    the tank still empties the trigger is stuck open.

    d) try putting clean water in the dirty water tank only and using it on
    a dry rug. If water goes somewhere from the dirty water tank you have
    a leak.

    e) take apart what you can and look at the parts. A good visual
    inspection can solve many of these types of problem if you are careful
    not to miss anything.

    Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


    I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
    air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

    When these stop picking up water, I assume it is spraying the water out, is because of a missing seal, where the suction port is, or a filter is clogged. Tank isn't set down like it should be.
