The metal ring goes first then the spring "Sits" on that washer, the plunger goes into the spring, then the rubber stopper goes on the end. OK.

I need to know which water lines go to and from pump on bissellporheat steam cleaner? mod.#1699R


The plastic screw-on cap for the fresh water/solution tank has a tiny internal spring loaded plunger that looks like an "X" when viewed from the end. There is a donut type rubber gasket that goes on the end of this screw-on cap. I had reseated this donut gasket but the rim interferred with the plunger so it discharged when I pressed the tank into position. When I got the donut gasket reseated properly, leaking was solved.

Not putting out water


Hello,

Here's some trouble shooting tips that will help you figure out what's wrong with your Bissell Little Green Machine, and why the water won't spray out. You didn't mention how old the machine was, but if the machine is brand new, and you've never used this before, then you'll need to prime the machine for the first time.

To prime the Little Green Machine, remove the hose after filling the clean water tank, and press and hold the trigger on the hose for approximately 45 seconds. This will prime the pump, and get the water flowing.

If the machine is older, and you've already been using it, here's some other troubleshooting tips that you can do to try and fix the machine:

9c4a1a7.jpg

Step 1. Fill the clean water solution tank with water, and remove it from the machine. With the tank removed, press the piston at the end of the tank that fits into the machine. The piston is the spring loaded part in the top of the water tank that is pressed upwards when the trigger is squeezed, which in turn releases water into the machine. Press the piston inwards with your finger and see if water comes out.

a0685ae.jpg

Step 2. If water is released from the tank when you push the piston inwards, then your piston and cap assembly are fine. Next unscrew the cap to the clean water tank and make sure that the o-ring is present. This is the rubber ring that rests in between the cap and the tank.

b5a2508.jpg

Step 3. If your o-ring is not there, you'll need to purchase a new a new o-ring and replace it. If the o-ring is present, screw the cap back onto the tank. Inspect the receiver to make sure there is no debris blocking it. The receiver is the part on the machine that the tank sits on top of. If you see debris here, remove any debris that could be obstructing the tanks piston.

Step 4. After checking these three things, refill the tank with water, reinsert back into the machine and test to see if the water now comes out. If the water does not come out, move on to step 5.

Step 5. Unscrew the two screws on the handle of the hose, and remove the cover that the two screws secure.

1e843f8.jpg

Step 6. After removing the hose cover, inspect the hose that connects to the trigger assembly for blockages:

1b1d8f3.jpg

Step 7. If blockages are found, remove the tube from the trigger, and blow through the hose to remove any blockages, and reinstall the tube back onto the trigger.

Step 8. Reinstall the trigger assembly so that the metal spring's curved side is facing down so that it touches the trigger valve:

Step 8. After reassembling the hose, turn the machine on again and try spraying the hose again.

If none of these solutions fixed your machine, this most likely indicates that you need to replace your pump. The pump is the internal part that takes the water from the tank, through the hose, and finally sprays it out. The pump replacement is a moderately difficult repair, but if you'd like me to walk you through it, I'd be more then happy to do so.

Please feel free to ask any follow up questions, or let me know if you'd like for me to show you how to replace the pump. I'm always more then happy to answer any question that you may have.

If you found this helpful, please kindly rate my repair helpful so that other Fixya users with the same problem can easily find this solution. By rating the repair you are also encouraging repair professionals to continue posting free repairs. Thanks in advance,

The steps to correct it: The thumb trigger and the sliding brass valve clog up and don't move. So if you use it and press the thumb trigger and no steam comes out, it's probably clogged.

Wait until it cools down. Empty the unit.

1.) unscrew any attachments and you will see where they screw in at the end, two small philips head screws on the end. remove them. The red rounded piece at the end will come off.
2.) now on the top, unscrew the water stopper top where you poor water in.
3.) Now below that is a round rubber piece that surrounds the threaded part where the stopper top screws on to. Grab it with your fingers and lift it up on the sides to remove it.
4.) now underneath here you can see two screws. Remove them.
5.) now grab the whole top piece that is "black" and pull upward to remove it. you may want to start at the front and work it off. It has a few snaps that will release when pulled. I have done this a few times so dont be afraid to pull this piece off.
6.) now you will see the valve assembly. Take a small hammer and tap on the small rounded "brass" nub that is sticking out of the "trigger side" of the valve. To know if it has released, I usually place my lips around the end that the steam comes out of and blow while pressing in on the little brass nub on the other side. I do this until that nub moves freely and I can hear the air escape out the top from my blowing on it. Sounds funny but it works. If not free, tap it harder, a few more times, until it is free. It will free up eventually. It gets stuck from time to time but this will get you back in business fairly quickly.
7.) move the nub a few times to ensure smooth movement.

Re-assembly

1.) The black plastic top will snap into place. Just line up the trigger spring with the red nub and snap the whole black piece back into place.
2.) place the two screws back in.
3.) The rubber protector ring is tricky. You will see the underside has a rubber edge that snaps in place. Work it around as best as possible and i usually use a screw driver to push the last little bit into place.
4.) place the red circular end cap on and the two screws that go with it.

you are all done. Once you do this a few times, you will become a pro OR as the above poster said, use distilled water.

Won't dispense cleaning solution


I had this same problem. There is a solution posted elsewhere on this website. Search for Hoover Floormate H3000.

The following solution is the one I tried: Remove the fluid dispensing tank and put a small dab of hot glue on the tip of the blue/greyish "plunger" piece that is located in the middle of the black rubber circle. Let the hot glue dry (this forms an extension to the plunger piece...) and replace the fluid tank.

I did this and my machine is working properly again! Whoever posted this solution was very helpful!

Rubber valve at bottom of blader tank


It is called the (#69)auto load asm, part # 2107041. It would be wise to replace it, It will come as one piece. Is the bladder ok? You can call Bissell and maybe buy the part thru them or they can tell you where to go to get it(800) 237-7691 ) .

Cleaning solution will not dispense


This seems to be a very common problem with the FloorMate, and fortunately it seems to be about the only glaring problem with this otherwise fantastic machine. Worst-case scenario - you will need to merely buy a NEW solution tank for your FloorMate to fix this problem. Here's the mend, on the cheap.

First, do this since it's preventative maintenance that likely is long overdue anyway:
Unplug the machine and remove both reservoirs.
Release the handle as if you were about to use the machine and lay it all the way down. Do this on a counter top with the brush head over or near the sink, or alternately a kitchen table works fine too, just have plenty of towels or paper towels on hand to catch any liquid.
Push the nozzle release tabs outward and take the nozzle off of the machine.
Press the brush release buttons and remove it as well.
Use an old toothbrush and some dish detergent in the sink to clean all the parts as good as possible internally.
Flip the FloorMate over so the underside of the head is facing up. Check the tiny holes where the brush assembly goes, and verify there aren't any clogged [there shouldn't be since dirt never reaches this area]. That is where the solution dispenses from and is dispersed by the spinning brushes.
Reassemble the freshly rinsed brush assembly and nozzle into the head of the unit and close the nozzle latches.

Now, on to the problem at hand:
What I found was the problem with my FloorMate not dispensing any fluid was that the plunger inside the solution tank was pushed up too far into the body of that tank. It is a little black piece, about 2 inches long, is shaped like a pin, and should descend from that hole about one eighth of an inch or so. Since mine [and likely yours] is up in there too high [mine was flush with the bottom of that hole], when you put the tank back into the FloorMate, the post inside the drain hole in the FloorMate isn't sufficiently reaching your recessed plunger to push it up inside the tank which then would allow the cleaner to dispense.

To remedy this, I'll list what I think is the easiest remedy first, followed by how I did it by trial and error:

I recommend using a tartar scraper like the dentist uses, about $2 at Walmart in the toothpaste aisle.
What you're trying to accomplish is to pull the plunger down about an eighth of an inch, as it has slid up further inside the rubber stopper it's attached to than it should be. Don't use too much force when attempting this repair as you might pop the plunger out of the tank completely. If so, see the ALL IS NOT LOST! section further down.
Open the solution reservoir and empty it, and then reinsert the top cap in the event the parts come loose so they won't fall out and go down the drain or otherwise.
Turn the reservoir upside down.
Put the curved end of the tartar scraper into the small drain hole in this reservoir, hook it just above the black plus-sign shaped part of the plunger, and pull down slightly but not too much. You want the two little black plastic "wings" on the bottom of the plunger to extend below the bottom of the drain hole. If you use too much force when pulling, you'll likely dislodge the entire plunger from the rubber stopper and spring that are inside the reservoir. If this happens, ALL IS NOT LOST! :) Just use patience and good lighting, and keep your work area neat and dry, and see two paragraphs down.

TESTING
Once the plunger is now sticking out of the bottom of the reservoir on its own, fill it up with tap water and hold it upright over the sink. It should not be dripping, but a few drops is not a deal breaker either - this rubber stopper/plunger is to keep the tank from leaking/dripping/draining while you're refilling the tank and putting it back in the machine. A few drops coming out is harmless.
Use the tip of a finger and, holding the tank upright, push up on the plunger. Water should run freely. If so, stand the FloorMate in its locked upright position on the counter or kitchen table and reinsert the tank. If at the sink, put the edge of the brush head over the sink, or if you're at the table place a hand towel under the brushes. Pull the trigger and hold it, and you should see the flow continue uninterrupted until the tank is empty, about 3 minutes [the sink is obviously better, here].
If it emptied completely, your work is done. Pat yourself on the back and go clean your floor! :)
If not, take the tank out and try to pull the plunger down just a little bit further, but not beyond one quarter of an inch from the bottom of the drain hole. Keep doing this until you have satisfactory results.
Note that the solution should dispense SOMEWHAT evenly from the brushes while you're testing this - don't worry if it's running fast out of one or more brushes and only dripping from others. The spinning action of the brushes spreads the solution out evenly. What you want to watch for is that the flow continues uninterrupted until the tank is empty.

ALL IS NOT LOST!
Here's how I did this repair during my trial and error investigation:
I used needle-nosed pliers and reached down inside the top hole in the solution tank.
I squeezed the top of the black plunger pin slightly and pushed down until it came out of the bottom of the tank. What remained inside [now loose in the tank!] were the rubber stopper and the spring that sits atop that stopper. I shook them out of the tank and reinserted the spring into the same-size part of the stopper, dropped it into the tank and played a game of skill & chance until I got it back where it was supposed to be and then inserted my tartar scraper into the hole from the bottom, up through the center of the stopper and the spring assembly, and pulled the spring down slightly to get it all back where it needed to be. Challenging but it took less than two patient minutes to do this.
Now turn the tank upside down again and carefully reinsert the plunger into the stopper, but don't push too hard. Make sure you're pushing in a straight line as your goal is to go all the way through the center of the spring and back into the retaining hole above the spring.
Now that the plunger is back home, you'll see it's sticking out about one half of an inch from the bottom of the tank - entirely TOO much!
Using the blunt handle end of my tartar scraper, I pushed the plunger firmly back into place until it bottomed out, causing it to reseat with the rubber stopper. I had to do this about 5 times before only the two plastic "wings" were sticking out from the bottom of that hole. Be careful you don't slip and slice open an artery on you or someone nearby. Perhaps consider using a less-sharp tool for this step if you're not sure of yourself here. Once the plunger is where it should be, see the TESTING section above to make sure you're in the clear.

Since other's solutions posted for this problem are too vague and possibly suggests you modify your FloorMate unnecessarily which will likely lead to future and perhaps irreparable problems, and my solution is very wordy, I'm going to soon make a repair video and post it on YouTube and I'll link to it here in my solution so you can watch instead of read.

Good luck, be careful, and enjoy using your FloorMate once again. :) WHEEEEEEE!!!

Water leaks


I removed the clean water tank to refill it and all the cleaning solution poured out onto the floor. Turns out a plastic pin with a spring and a rubber washer also fell out onto the floor leaving a hole in the bottom of the tank. Calls to Hoover and local repair center all ended the same with the need to order a new clean water tank for about $45 and two weeks for delivery. Went to my local True Value Hardware store and within a few minutes we found a workaround using two 7/16"x 1/4"x3/32" #780 Ring from Danco Inc. Pulled off the proprietary Hoover O Ring that had obviously failed and put two of these O Rings on in its place and so far it is working perfectly. Total cost $1.35. Would be nice if Hoover cared to take better care of their customers by offering this almost free and quick solution to the problem.
