Clean water runs right out of by the brushes.

I have taken the cover off and the tubes are all connected and I also checked the tank and the operates fine. I was wondering if i could have a bad gravity solution valve or something else.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You may have a bad water pump, bad gasket, the water release valve could be broken, or the water tank is not sitting on the opening properly or the trigger assm is not closing properly. Feel free to check with you local vac dealer or a new or a good used part if you find out what is wrong. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Is there a more efficient way to clean the brush assembly on the max extract dual v other than running the assembly under water? The bristles are loaded with carpet fuzz and remains of doggy doo


Following is the procedure for removing the brushes.
  • Your cleaner is equipped with removable brushes. Follow these directions for changing brush assemblies or for easy cleaning. How to Remove To prevent possible leaking, remove Clean Water Tank and Dirty Water Tank. Set tanks aside. With handle in upright position, tilt cleaner back until handle rests on the floor. 5.3 Grab brush assembly and pull firmly.
  • The brushes can be cleaned under running water. ! CAUTION ! To reduce the risk of injury from moving parts, unplug cleaner before servicing.
See page 17 of the link manual for the details

How do you remove the lower handle?


Check the clean water holding tank. I had this problem and found that was a crack near the outlet on the bottom of the tank. I replaced the tank and resolved the problem. I have taken this machine apart several times, if the tank is not the problem with yours, check the water tube.

Have you tried cleaning out the small filterfrom the reserve tank? Also, check the tank/resevoir valve is operating properly, when you take it out to fill try to make water release from tank.

I have a 1699 proheat upright steam cleaner and the water is not dispensing on the carpet but the brush is turning


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, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. 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. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

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.
