Re: attachment problem

Make sure everything is filled and secured tightly, if this a new unit it should be something simple ok, also check where machine folds down that the solution hose is not being pinched its right behind the dirty water tank

Bissell powersteamer won't dispense soap

Check to make sure the tank is installed completely. Turn off unit and unplug it. Then reinstall the tank, plug in the unit, wait one minute and turn it one. Check by using the sprayer. If that didn't work call the Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691

Hoover steam vac model 5853-900 has 5 brushes/cleaning dispensers, am only getting 2 small trickles of fluid when I dispense fluid onto carpet

The brushes come off, they are clipped on as an assembly if you look at the bottom of the machine you can see where the cover for the vacuum slot that brings up the water clips on too. If you remove that you can see the clips that hold the brush unit better

When I am cleaning carpet, the water spray works

I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I don't know if this will work with your unit... but I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying something else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Soap/water solution pouring out on floor when trying to use hose & attachments

The attachment hose is torn right where it connects to the motor . And there should be a trigger on the end of the hose right below where it connects to the hand tool.

Dispensing problem w/attachment and maybe floor partion

The F5914 has a hose that must be attached to the pump when using the upholstry attachment. Make sure that the solution hose is pushed onto the pump valve all the way. Try pushing the hose down and then pushing the locking collar down to secure it. This will insure that the hose is fully engaged.
