Need more info. if the actual trigger that you press with your finger came out then it attactes back to the handle guard. there should be a screw on the back of the handle were you hold it. if you take this off the handle guard should come off. inside of this you should see two half moon clips inside that the trigger snaps into.

Bissell 1970 quicksteamer water runs out of clean water tank


Try re-installing the handle. Remove the screw on the back of the machine and pull up on the handle. Once the handle is removed pull the trigger to make sure the plugger on the end of the handle moves up and down when the trigger is pulled. If the plunger is moving reinstall handle and test. If the plunger is not moving you may need a new handle.

Can not get smartmix knob and plunger to line up to put back together


Turn the plunger so that the flat edge is turned all the way to the right (clock wise) as far as it will go. Turn the dial on the cover to just water and it should line up. If the plunger is stuck in the cover pull it out and put it in the bottom part of the cleaner.

Hoover Steamvac Upholstery Cleaner will not spray water.


In my case when I pulled the trigger on the upholstery hose I barely got a drizzle of water. After looking at the parts online I realized the valve assembly on the spray end of the hose consisted of a black valve housing, with an inner spring and a white plunger part that sprays the water. The white plunger should move noticeably when the trigger is pulled. Since all 3 part of that valve assembly were replaceable I decided to try and take it apart. First I removed the 2 silver screws on the cover of trigger end of the hose and lifted out the valve assemble. The white plunger part was basically frozen in the black valve assembly. Tried pulling the white plunger out by hand wouldn't budge. So I use a pair of plier and pulled the white part out. Sure enough the whole inside was caked with what appeared to be old dried cleaner. I rinsed the spring and the white plunger. There were o-rings on the white plunger, I did not remove them but used an old tooth brush to clean out around them then reassembled. The white plunger now freeing slides a noticeable distance when the trigger is depressed and getting a large V shaped spray pattern. Lesson learned, I will now make sure I run plenty of plain water through the hose to rinse all the cleaner out after using it .

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.

Steam will not eject


Same issue with my model. Heated up but would not produce... I called it SED (Scunci Erectile Disfunction) My doctor prescribed him some lube, and it worked! Now days Im happy to say we share a heathy steamy relationship!

Say goodbye to SED forever with the help from lube! All you have to do is open up the unit, locate the circular brass colored button, apply a squirt of lube (wd-40), create a decent amount of pressure and play with the little button until you notice smooth in-out motions. Put the unit back together and BAM you two will be back to a hot and steamy relationship, just like you had when you first met! ;)

Soap not dispensing


Hi. Try it just using cold water only. If this now flows ok the water you are putting in to tank is to hot causing pressure to build up in tank which which causes the plunger to not be able to push hard enough against valve in the tank.

Follow the plastic extension that runs from the trigger through the length of the handle. This requires more disassembly that at just the trigger. At the end of the plastic extension you will find a triangular-shaped "ramp" that pushes against a "button" plunger that opens the valve that releases solution. When you release the trigger, the triangular ramp retreats and the plunger is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring in the valve. This plunger sticks because of accumulated soap from evaporated solution. Try cleaning that valve and plunger by running clean, hot water through the system OR replace the valve. In the future ALWAYS thoroughly flush the system with hot, clean water after using the machine.
