Put the piston on the bottom part of the knob, You want the the knob to be at the water only setting when it goes into the slot. After the top is pushed all of the way on, turn the auto-mix knob to see if it is turning easily. If it doesn't stop, and wants to keep turning, then you probably need a new knob.

How do you get the smart mix dial to line back up when replacing the top plastic cover on a bissell pro heat pet.

First, insert the black plastic control valve all the way into the hole. Make sure that the rounded face with the cut in it is facing toward the tall part of the chamber/hole where you inserted the valve. Try to line up the dial with where the threads would enter the cut in the valve. Hint: the hole in the center of the dial will go over the tall part of the chamber wall. Once you believe you have it aligned correctly, replace the plastic body cover and keep the dial out of the body cover. Just put in the screw on the side the dial is on, so if it is not aligned properly, you can remove the cover more quickly. Once you have the body screwed down, screw the dial into the hole and it should align easily with the valve in the hole. If not, remove the body cover, and try to realign the valve again. Repeat until you get the dial to screw in easliy.

I just did this today because I had to fix a customer's unit. It took me about 20 minutes or so to figure it out, but I finally got it. I was hoping your question had an answer to it when I got on here, but at least I got it figured out anyway. Hope this helps! That is if you still have this unit...

I have a Bissell 1690 carpet cleaner and it is leaking water very quickly out the back. How can I fix this problem?

I had the same problem with my bissell proheat carpet cleaner. My cleaner would leak water out the back when i turned it on. I opened up the cleaner and found there was a broken tee connector. The tee connector was a small black plastic three way connector shaped like a letter "T" with three plastic hoses plugged in to each end. One hose had broken off from the tee, the tee connector itself had snapped. Bissell has a couple hoses that run up through the upright porsion of the cleaner, i believe if that hose gets pulled too hard by over extending the cleaner upright portion it can snap the tee connector.
I purchased a vacuum line tee connector at the local auto parts store for a buck and replaced it. The vacuum line connectors are for rubber lines on a vehicle related to the engine, but they work fine for the Bissell. The size i purchased was 3/16"x3/16"x3/16". The cleaner works great now!!!

Here is how i took it apart:

I removed the water reservour, the soap dispenser, and the cap for the air flow indicator (red spinny thingy).
I removed the two screws in the very back, the two in the middle on each side of the water resevour and the two in the front. I carefully lifted the top of the cleaner off.
Inside you have to watch for a black plunger piece that might fall out, it belongs to your (heavy traffic/light traffic/water only) turn knob. If the plunger falls out reinsert it back into the underside of the cleaner lid right next to the knob, you will see how it fits in there...hopefully. Inside the bottom portion of the cleaner you will see a few hoses. Check them all and make sure none of them are disconnected or broken off from the tee connector. I would almost bet that this is what your problem is if the machine is leaking. replace the valve, reconnect hoses and carefully reassemble the cleaner.
Hope this helps...

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.
