The heater may be plugged, Take out the 2 long screws and remove handle, there are 2 screws near the bottom just under the cord wrap, then the front of the handle asm. will come off. The heater is there, put off the hoses(don't mix up) and check the opening going into the heater. One or both is clogged up not allowing water to flow thru. Put it all back together and it should work, Running a mix of water and vinegar will rinse out the lines before putting the machine up after using it.

    I also can't get the part that covers all the internal stuff to match back up now. They need to put what the inside looks like and what every part is on the internet so people, like me, that can't afford to take it to someone to get it fixed can figure it out. Err!!

  • scyllas Mar 03, 2008

    Alright, I got it put back together and it sprays now, but it won't suction. >:( I used it to clean up some backed up water the other day and it suctioned fine. It sucks it half way up the front, but won't carry it into the tank. I think it's just one of those things that if it's not one problem, then it's another. I give up.

Max extract 60 is not releasing water tried everything had it service 1half tears ago since bought it only used a handful of times nothing but problems with this with water flow not getting it any...


The spray tubes get gummed up if fresh water is not pushed through them to clean out soap deposits. The water tubes need to be cleaned out

Hoover f7430-900 wont desperse water from carpet attatchment


I' used to have a carpet cleaner that did the same thing.
The method they used to stop & start the water spray was a pinch system. When the trigger is pulled the clamp releases and the tube is no longer being pinched Or so that is what is supposed to happen but if it has been sitting a long time (witch is always) the tube gets stuck together where the clamp mechanism pinches the tube.
You can either squeeze the tube from the sides to get it to stop sticking or cut a small piece of and replace it using 2 (straight - Male/Male line connectors) to plug it back together.
That way you can do it when ever you need to, only replacing 3 inches or so.
It is usually just fish tank tubing you can buy at any hardware or pet store with the (straight - Male/Male line connectors) they should have in the same area of the store.
Also as I tell everyone - I love this site but youtube is another good site for helpful videos on most anything you can think of.
They should be paying me for all the advertising I do for them. lol
Good Luck

Spot bot leaking when using manual hose


This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.

If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.

We have the water hooked up at the back of machine. there is a spout for the water to come in and fill the ice tray.but is does not. If we turn the water on it fills up the space under the ice basket. I...


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
With the fill tube blocked with ice the water can drip down the back wall or drip into the ice bin or just stop up. You can use a hairdryer to thaw the tube out.

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine...


just taken ours apart with the same problem... found it was caused by the 2 halves of the main casing coming apart in the area where the upright pedal release is. I found this to be due to the upper casing having broken in 2 places - the bottom of the screw wells. This means that the water tank cannot exert sufficient pressure on the valve to release the water. Only solution is a new top cover assembly

SteamVac F5914-900 SpinScrub won't stay upright or collect water


(1) Upright: Sounds like the tab on the lower handle that the handel release latches to has broken off. The machine is fully functional without it otherwise.

(2) Assure the ring gasket is in place under the hood. A round rubber gasket must be in place on the round tube under the hood where the recovery tank sits to connect the vacuum from the motor to the round tube on the bottom of the tank.

Sprays soap, but not water


My Bissell is quite fussy. Sometimes I have to wiggle and push down the tank before the water will start to flow. The water doesn't flow properly if the soap container is low - I fill it with water when rinsing. It has a viewport with a red cross that turns when the water flows. Sometimes just removing that and the white filter below (and putting them back) makes it go. Mine is easy to take apart - 6 screws in the base unit and the top comes off. There are two water tubes going into the handle hinge under where the water tank goes - very easily squished or damaged. Last time the water stopped flowing, I ran it with the cover off and just fiddled around with the tubes and away it went. Maybe it is spraying soap only. The water flows up through the handle to the finger valve and heater. Some people say the heater in the upright/handle gets plugged. I haven't had that apart, but it should be easy to bypass the heater.
