Question about Bissell 1698-1 PowerSteamer ProHeat Plus Upright Vacuum
Here is how to fix it
Posted on Feb 08, 2010
I had two problems. No water was coming out of the main unit (it was working fine via the powerbrush) and the flow indicator wasn't spinning. Because I'm out of warranty, I did two things (after trying all the options that were posted).
1. Removed the top of the main unit. There are 4 screws on the top back lid. Once you remove those, lift the back up towards the front. The front is snapped under the bottom casing. It should come up with a little pressure, but don't force it. With the top lid removed, I had to clean several of the rubber hosing by removing them and running under warm water. I actually used a long wooden skewer to scrape the grime in the tube. Make sure you do one tube at a time and replace in as it was before moving to the next one. While you are at it, make sure the 2 sprayers on the front are clean as well. They are either orange or yellow and rubber tubes also feed into the sprayers. After I finished, I replaced the lid. It it still wasn't working, so I tried step 2.
2. Remove the hose assembly from the main handle. 2 screws and 2 bolds (don't lose the nuts from the back). Once the hose assembly has been removed, then lift off the top part of the handle. Once the top is off you should be able to open the front lower part of the handle exposing the additional electrical and more rubber tubbing. In the middle is rectangular looking object. That is the water heater. If you just ran the vacuum, do NOT touch this as it will be hot. Wait for it to cool. check the connections of the rubber tubing and make sure they are clean. In my case the tube going in to the heater was all blocked up with cleaner solution. Once I cleaned that up an reassembled in reverse order, the unit worked fine.
Hope that helps you.
