This is a common problem with these cleaners. The solution seems to cyrstalize and black the small tube near the heater. Take apart the handle and the run a small screwdriver or pipe cleaner through to unblock the small tubes, put it back together and it will be like new. I had the same problem with my clearview. I would not run vinegar through the machine, it can eat up the seals.

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines.

My bissell pro heat 2X has stopped dispensing water from the tank, the suction is working and it seems to be dispensing the detergent, so it is not rinsing or washing with water. I have cheaked to see if...


I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. 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.

Machine will not dispense water even though reservoir is full. Soap is not dispensing either.


check the spray nozzles on top of the brushroll. these often clog. If those are clear could most likely be the pump as they fail frequently.

Detergent bottle keeps falling off, wont stay put and clean water isn't emptying at all


The tank assembly needs to be replaced. Keep your tank handle. The other problem is your water not dispensing. There are electric solenoids and a pump that control dispensing soap and water. Take it to a repair shop for complete diagnosis before you replace the tank. The new tank is better, both soap and water tanks are in one assembly

take the tank off and turn the unit on and see of there is section where the tank would sit. If so then the tank is not seated correctly, if not it is plugged with something.

NOT DISPENSING


I had exactly the same problem with my five-year old my Bissell 7920, and it's probably a broken pump belt.  See page 19 of your instruction manual for how to replace.  The Bissel ProHeat belt accessory pack costs $3.99 and you get a pump belt and a brush belt.  Since you have to first remove the brush belt to get to the pump belt, you might as well replace both. The first time I did this it took me 15 minutes, but now that I know the drill, doing a belt replacement would take about 3 minutes.

Not dispensing water and no suction


I'm assuming the belts are OK.... Your heater is clogged. Unplug the machine and let it sit for 30 minutes. Take the handle apart, there will be a 4 inch by 8 inch metal box inside. This is the heater. Remember I said to let the machine sit for 30 minutes? If you didn't, the heater may be EXTREMELY hot!! Disconnect the two hoses going into it, and clean the metal pieces out (that the hoses connected to) with a needle or very small drill bit. You may want to remove the 6 or 8 screws holeding the heater together and remove the cover to clean it out. Reassemble and fill both tanks with VERY hot water ONLY and run the machine to rinse the entire system.

To prevent future reoccurences... use only Bissell extraction shampoos. Never put anything in the detergent tank except shampoo. (And only water in the water tank) Mixing chemicals with anything else turns the water/detergent mix to sludge. Also, when finished shampooing, put ONLY water in both tanks, and run the machine until one of the tanks run out of solution. Doing this rinses the hose lines out and prevents hardening of the solution in the heater ports.

I've fixed these machine for years. No dispensing is almost always the heater clogged.
