Turn the plunger so that the flat edge is turned all the way to the right (clock wise) as far as it will go. Turn the dial on the cover to just water and it should line up. If the plunger is stuck in the cover pull it out and put it in the bottom part of the cleaner.

The solution in my smart mix will not mix with water and the button just keeps going round and clicks and will not stop on either water or solution.


The smart mix knob is connected to a piston that slides up and down into the automix assembly. This piston has come off of the smartmix knob and left the unit on water only setting. Sometimes the smart mix knob breaks on the bottom side letting loose the piston.

This can be a difficult repair. You have to unscrew the flow indicator window and remove the fan and screen(pay attention to how they come out, most people want to put the pointed end of the white screen down. It goes up.) Place a piece of 2X4, a book, something underneath the machine, between the rear wheels. This will lift the wheels into the air, and keep everything in place when you remove the hood. Take the 6 screws out that hold the hood and lens. As you remove the hood try to do it slowly and pay special attention to any hoses that might try to pull off with it. If you don't get those hoses back into the right place, the machine will not work. The piston will probably be stuck into the automix assembly when you get the hood off. It is a three inch black cylinder with an O ring on it. If you hold the hood upside down and place the cornered side of the piston into the corner of the housing between the knob and the solution chamber, you should be able to hook the winding on the knob with the piston and then turn the knob to screw the piston down into the windings. It won't lock into place, but hold it there well enough to put the machine back together correctly.

If you feel like you're forcing something when putting the hood back on, you probably are, so stop and check to make sure all the hoses are where they are supposed to be.

Good Luck

I THINK THE SMART MIX PISTON IS INSTALLEDS WRONG


it has the rubber seal and the container releases fluid when it depressed.... bipolar lol..

fill it with hot water and prime the machine.. don't use soap just try lear the lines.. always run hot water through your machine to clear the lines before storage.. and to maintain prime

Bissell 1699-1 reassmble


I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!YAY.
the piston comes out easily with a pair of plyers.hold the cover on your lap upside down, smart mix knob closest to you,there is a slot for the piston to fit in to, turn the knob slightly (about 1/2") you will see that you can lift the knob slightly out of the way then you can slide the piston into place. leave the knob at that position to hold the piston and slowly put the cover back in place. if the piston goes in,just before you put the cover all the way down turn the knob back to water only.if everything is in place, PUT THE SCREWS IN!!!! hope this helps.

Smartmix bottle


The cap and insert at the bottom of the bottle may need to be replaced, or you could have a problem with the smart mix asm. You would have to remove the top cover to get to it. Does the smart mix knob stop where it is supposed to or does it go all of the way around, if it does, then the stop on the knob is broken.

Bissell doesn't work with cover on...


Did you put the piston on the bottom side of the smart mix knob? If not, put it on, then turn it slightly so it won't fall off. Just before putting the top cover on, put the smart mix knob in the water only spot, then push the top on and make sure that the knob turns back and forth ok. Secure the top down, and put the flow indicator on. Sometimes when you over tighten that cap, it doesn't want to spray right. So just snug it. If you haven't pinched any lines on the base or inside the handle, it should work. Could also be that the flow indictor cap is bad. MAke sure the gasket at the bottom of the tank is on the valve and not sitting in the hole.

MY BISSELL DOES NOT WORK


When you put the top back on, did the piston line up and go into the hole? The piston mounts on the smart mix knob from the bottom, just before the top is on, put the smart mix knob in the water only setting, then push the top down. You could also have pinched a line if any of them aren't in the right place.

Bissell ProHeat 7920 Carpet Cleaner


I managed to sort this. The small plunger valve sits in a little square crevice next to the smartmix dial - it does NOT sit in the middle as it first seems. You then have to get the lip of the smartmix dial to sit in the cut out on the side of the plunge valve so that it moves up and down when the switch is turned.
It take patience, but it is possible - no need to use any force.

Bissell Pro-Heat Pro-Tech Carpet Cleaner


Put the piston on the bottom part of the knob, You want the the knob to be at the water only setting when it goes into the slot. After the top is pushed all of the way on, turn the auto-mix knob to see if it is turning easily. If it doesn't stop, and wants to keep turning, then you probably need a new knob.
