Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum
On my bissell proheat, when I push the pedal down to release the upright handle so I can start to vacuum, it will roll backwards, but not forwards on the carpet. On the bare floor, it rolls just fine forward and back. This is tested with the power button OFF. I have also located a piece of plastic that apparently broke off from the right side (when looking at it from the overview). Is the broken plastic the problem, or is it something else? If it is the broken plastic, how do I replace.
1 When I push the gray lever to let the handle go down, it will not let the handle go down. What is wrong with the handle?
2 The machine will not suck up vary well when I use the hose to vacumn.

Sounds like the outer window noozle isn't seated with the inner window. Take out the two screws, one on each side, remove the window, inspect the other half moon window to make sure it is ok, then reinstall the outer window(don't forget the gasket that sits on top of this window)Try to see if you still have a problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the handle and check for continuous spray.
After handle is removed, check to make sure the valve is not stuck in the down position. If the valve is stuck in the down position, push on it manually to get it to come back up. If it is stuck you may need to get a new handle for your unit. This handle is for a variety of the ProHeat models http://www.bissell.com/parts/?sc=part&productid=2775&partid=4449&cid=ccsocial
Check to make sure it will properly fit your model if you need a new handle.
