I just bought a bissel pro heat 2x used and i cant get the water to come out after it is on


Hello There,
There are a number of things that cold cause no water is coming out.
-Fill up the clear water bladder, lift up and push the valve underneath to release some water (it should drip)
-place the water container on the carpet cleaner and make sure it sits properly. If you lift up the container it should see some water in the deep part of the base plate (where the valve is on the bottom of the container)
-turn on the the carpet cleaner (the vacuum motor should spinning) and push the spray button(check if water shows up)
-if not, listen to the for the sound of the pump motor (unfortunately the vacuum motor is already running so the noise level is high)
-if you can't tell, you need to open the base plate 9disconnect the power first) by removing the tank and unscrew the Phillips screws all around the base plate. When you lift it up carefully you will see a small 12 Volt DC motor, this is the pump. The motor have to receive 12 V to turn on. If the motor is running (checking the sound, measuring the voltage to it) the problem is the tubes are plugged. It can be anywhere from the nozzles, the filter on the base plate, the heater (if the bottom plate is lifted up it is easy to see). The heater is made by two pieces, removing the screws it can be opened up and cleaned.
If the motor is not running (no power to it, it can be the bridge rectifier or the 3.15 A fuse (embedded in the cable harness)

Good luck!

Hi there,

From what you've described, it sounds like you may have a blockage somewhere between the cleaner head and the clear bin. The easiest way to check this, and to remove any blockages, is to visit the Support section of our website and follow these simple steps:

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1120&product=DC24-ALLFLOORS

The brushbar on your DC24 is powered by a motor, and should rotate when the cleaner is reclined in the vacuuming position. If it's not doing this, you may need to reset the safety cut-out switch. This is easy to do - with the cleaner facing you, the reset button can be found in the red recess on the left-hand side of the cleaner head. Use the blunt end of a pencil or something similar to push it in until you hear an audible click.

Hopefully this should resolve your issues. However, if you're still having difficulties, please get in touch with us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US), so we can run through some simple checks over the phone, and provide further assistance.

Kind regards,

Jack

Accessing the motor


Hi There,

This should help you get into the motor compartment in the back to access your motor. I hope this helps you.

I have uploaded parts diagram of your model below so that you can follow along:

7dbc7c2.jpg

Step 1. Open up the tool lid as if you were going to remove the dusting brush or crevice tool from the top of the vacuum cleaner Once the lid for the tools is open, simply grab the two arms at the base of the lid, and pull forward towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects. You'll need to remove the tool lid completely from the rest of the vacuum. You may have to lift slightly upwards while pulling forwards to remove the lid.

Step 2. After you've removed the tool lid, now open up the lower part of the tool lid that covers the vacuum bag (Part 29 in diagram above). While this cover is open all the way, grab the two arms on this part as well, and pull towards the front of the vacuum where the bag connects, and slightly upwards, just as you did to remove the tool lid. Remove the vacuum bag lid completely from the vacuum cleaner as well.

Step 3. There are two visible screws that are now visible (The screw listed as number 16 that's directly underneath of the number 36) on the front corners of the motor housing. Remove both of these screws that are in the front corners of the motor housing.

Step 4. There are actually two more screws that are hidden on this model, that are located underneath of the foot pedal that retracts the cord reel. You'll need to now remove the foot pedal from the vacuum cleaner (part 36 on the diagram). In order to do this, use a flat head screw driver to pry off the foot pedal. Insert the flat head screw driver in the front of the pedal where the pedal meets the motor housing. There are 4 tabs that hold this pedal in place. Usually if you put your flat head screw driver in the middle of the pedal where two of these tabs are right next to each other, the pedal will come off right away. Insert your flat head screw driver where I have circled red, these are the two tabs that you want to pry off. Simply push towards the rear of the vacuum while the flat head screwdriver is inserted in between the foot pedal and the motor housing:

Step 4. Now that you have the foot pedal off of the canister, simply remove the two now exposed hidden screws (oh yea watch out for that spring that's underneath of the pedal! remember to put this back when putting the pedal back), and lift straight up on the motor housing. You'll now have full access to the cord reel so that you may push the cord back through the hole in the rear of the vacuum cleaner.

Please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on the repair page if you have any questions, or need some further help in accessing the cord reel. If your cord reel has gone bad, we do carry all the parts for your vacuum, and we'd be more then happy to provide any part that you may need. Here's a link to the bags for your vacuum on our site, just in case you need to purchase some:

I really hope that this helped you. If you have any further questions, I look forward to hearing from you. If this was helpful to you, please be so kind and return the favor by rating my repair helpful. You may do this by clicking the 4 thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner of the repair. This is really what keeps repair professionals like myself continue providing free repair services and it's greatly appreciated.

No spray detergent comming out of bissell carpet cleaner


hi, the main reason you have no spray coming out is due to a blockage, if its new and has not been used then you need to hold the button down for 2 or 3 min before detergent comes out, how ever if you have used this before then the chances are its blocked.

The most likely place for blockage is where the water comes out of the jets at the bottom at the front so tip the vac up and give these little holes a clean with a pin or something else you can fit into the hole to remove the build up of gel caused by detergent build up.
If after doing this it still dont work then empty the detergent bottle and fill with hot but not boiling salty water and leave it in the vac for about 10 min then switch on and hold button down for couple of minutes to see if this has then cleared the blockage.

If after doing this their is still no water coming out then your going to need to take the bottom of the vac off and follow the hose the water comes out of adn check for any blockage once you find the blockage squeeze the pipe at the blockage and this should then free it up.

Now what they dont tell you when you buy these but what they should tell you is that after every use empty the detergent bottle and fill with warm clean water and then press the button and let this water flow through the vac for a couple of minutes doing this will ensure you have no more blockages.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Model 116 Kenmore vacuum cleaner. 20+ years old,


Greetings,

I believe that this is probably a Kenmore Canister vacuum cleaner, but I can't be positive. The model number 116 is just the first part, and all Sears vacuum cleaners start with model 116. There is a . after the 116 that will identify the vacuum. If you'd like me to be more model specific, or if this is an upright vacuum, please just request a clarification and I can take pictures even for you.

If this is a canister style vacuum, then you'll need to remove the foot pedal that rewinds the cord reel. There are 2 or 3 (depending on which model you have) hidden screws underneath of this pedal. You may simply pry off the pedal using a flat head screw driver. Also when you have the bag door open, you may just pull forward while it's open, and this will remove the bag door housing. There should be two screws in the front of the motor housing that need to be removed as well.

My guess from the age of the vacuum that's probably the motor that's gone. If this is the case, you probably can still get a motor if you'd like to just replace the motor inside, rather then buying a new vacuum. Typical Sears Kenmore canister motors sell for 79-120 dollars.

Again, I'd be happy to try and help you further, I will just need the entire model number after the 116. to know which vacuum you have.

If this was helpful, please click the 4 thumbs up icons in the top of the page. Thank you,

Chris J.

Unit is seated properly but water/fluid will not come out when I press the trigger. Suction works fine. Bissell ProHeat 2X used only four times.


You need to check that the motor drive belt is OK and turning freely to drive the water pump - under the flap on the right side at the front as you look at the front of the Bissell. If this is OK have you filled the cleaning bottle with fluid etc? If so you may have an airlock in the pipe from the bottle to the motor. You can also have a blockage from the pump to the dispenser nozzles and can test this by taking off the top cover and taking the plastic tubes off them to see if water comes out of the tube. You can also do the same for the tube from the tank to the pump to see if water is getting to the pump OK. Also make sure that the mix valve setting (on the left side - looking from the front) is not turned to the off position. This could also be blocked and need cleaning or replacing.

Try gently feeding a thin, springy wire down the tube to find is there is a blockage further up.
