Question about Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum

1 Answer

The soap is NOT dispensing. I'm cleaning with hot water only (pretty good in fact!) but the dispenser that used to go thru soap like there's no tomorrow has stayed at the same level for 3 tanks (at least.) Where do I check for a clog?

On the bottom and underneath the main water tank (depending on the unit) is where the lines are located. You can take and remove these rather easily. On newer models this is just opening clips others require screws.

make sure that where the detergant tank plugs into the system that it is not clogged or obstructed. Also check the detergant tank filter for clogs. Easy way to check the tank is to put water in it then hold it up like it would be in the unit. with your pinky finger press up on the tank's outlet and fluid will come out. if it does the tank is fine and look to the socket.

Thank you and good luck!

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

Water not dispensing


Check the release valve on bottom of clean water reservoir unscrew if needed, once again if your not sure run hot water in the solution tank through the system to help remove old soap residue and always run hot water through to prevent future problems after cleaning carpet and storing.steve

How do you clean out the SteamVac...for example..the area where the water is sucked back through is very dirty...where it is visible from the outside


The easiest way is to rake the debris out with a piece of wire. More difficult, but better, is to remove the screws that hold the "wondow" on and clean. Some disassembly required! We see a lot of posts for cleaners that are stopped up. I know you didn't ask, but it's a really, really good idea to run a tankful of just plain hot water through the main dispenser and the attachment dispenser before you put the machine away. It will keep your dispensing lines free of soap that will plug it up, and cleans the soap out of the pickup side as well.

Soap is not dispensing out of the soap dispenser on the bissell


Pour some hot water in the machine and see if the hose is clogged. Is the pump making any noise when you hit the switch like it is trying to pump?

This could be due to dried out soap in the works below the dispenser. Try cleaning the hole, putting plain water in the soap dispenser to clean it out further. You could just put some soap in with the water. Be sure to run lots of rinse water through afterward to clean out the heating unit.
