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.

Bissell Proheat 1699-5 won't spray, belt ok

Hi There,

It sounds like to me that this may be your pump. The newer ProHeat 2X models actually have a Silinoid problem right now which is more common then the pump going bad, but if you have the original ProHeat series, then it sounds lik you have a bad pump.

Here's a link to a very, very helpful repair guide directly from Bissell that will explain to you step by step how to trouble shoot, and replace the pump if needed. I would be lost on the ProHeat series without this handy repair guide.

I'm pretty knowledgable now on these machines, if you need some help or some clarification on how to repair this, please feel free to reply to this repair by using the Clarification request form. If you found this helpful, please be so kind and rate my repair, and give feedback.

Here's the link:

Thanks again,

Chris Jones

Water comes out the accessory hose but not the floor cleaner

I had the same problem and the heater ports were clogged. I took apart the top unit and cleaned the ports with miniature bottle brushes used to clean spray painting equipment (purchased at Harbor Freight for $4). Reassembled and the unit worked fine.

Does the cleaner solution go in small tank. Should the little tube be down in solution?
Above is a link to where you can get the full user manual. But to answer your questions, the cleaning solution does go into the small tank with the tube, the tube should be arched and go to the bottom corner of the small tank. Clean hot (not boiling) tap water goes into the inner bladder of the big tank. Fill it till you can see the water near the top.

My Bissell ProHeat 1699

There should be a black oblong gasket that sits between the edge of the noozle and the lip of the tank, If it is missing, then you will have to suction there. Also there should be a plastic red filter, mounted on the tank lid, covering the suction port, it it is clogged, then no suction.
