Bissell cleanview carpet cleaner


There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be.
If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.

The water and soap are not coming out of the cleaner. It is heating and pulling air back through.


Related issue: In general, if plain water is not run through the system (and drained out!) after each use, the water can leave "boiler scale" in small inlet and/or outlet tubes on the heater (up inside the handle). If it fills the inlet/outlet tube, this will stop ALL water flow, even if you're not using the 'heat' function, because the water goes through the heater whether the heater is on or off. I was able to get the flow going by digging out the corrosion from inside the inlet/outlet tubes on the heater where the clear, plastic, inlet and outlet hoses attach. It's been working fine for a few years since the fix.

The solution won't come out the bottom of the


You can check a few items:
(1) Is the solution supply hose kinked closed at the bottom of the handle?
(2) Any chance anything clogged the solution line? If anything solid got in the solution tank, even if somebody used powdered soap, it may clog the line.
(3) When you pull the handle trigger with you finger, do you see the rod press down a rubber pad (right behind the base of the solution tank area that it seals to the handle?

What parts go to a Kirby Shampooer?


There is a shampooer head with shampooer brushroll, water tank, small hose that hooks to the tank, collection tray

Need to use the Kirby shampoo. It goes down as wet suds but you pick up the suds with the vacuum when it drys. Fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached

After using the shampooer you need to reattach the vacuum bag and main brushroll nozzle as though you were just vacuuming up dirt.

Instructions:

Lift the front of your kirby up (front part with light) open the handle on the dail in the front (if epquipt), remove the power head, put on height adjustment on highest level, turn dial on front of power head until you see 2 red arrows facing each other, unlock by turning knob, power head should come right off, get shampooer out the power head for shampooer with collection tray, make sure dial is set red on red, put on front of Kirby and lock in, turn dial to green on green arrows, fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (Kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached, line up arrow and notch and turn, to hook up hose put Kirby down to lowest level, notched end of hose hooks in on tray other end on the tank,on/off switch refers to the foam, Turn machine on to lay the foam & scrub carpet, take shampooer back off to extract the foam once it's dry.

Good luck.

Bissell proheat, not sure of model number no water will dispense


Ran in to similar issue except mine would not spray soap or solution through the floor cleaner but would work through the upolstry cleaner.

I found that there were 2 problems as follows:

1) The heater was clogged with mineral deposits and old soap that I had not cleaned out on a previous use.

2) The Valve that attached to the trigger sticks. (I am currently looking for a new valve)

Since you have soap and no water I your problem probably exists in the bottom of the unit. There are 6 screws to take off the cover.

You will see a hose that come from the soap despenser. It leads to the pump which is located in the front left corner of the unit. You can also trace the water hosed in and out of this pump. Since the hoses are clear you should be able to see any clogg. There is a hose that leads up the handle to the valve and then a hose that comes back down the handle (through the wheel opening) The hose that comes back down from the handel leads to a splitter which devides the output to the two jets.

Once it is apart it is pretty simple.

Hope this helps!!

Check down that hole and see if there is a clog in it. That end goes down to the dirt inlet by the brush roll and should be open.

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.

I cant get the thing the thing to go backt together because apparentely the hoses arent routed properly How can I find out where they are supposed to be connected and how they are routed.
