You might try running a solution of vinegar and water thru it to clean out the lines and spray nozzles. Also are the brushes turning when you are using it, that could also be the problem.

Check the filters, make sure they aren't clogged. Also if this has the foam filter on the inside of the tank lid, make sure it has at least a 1/4 is gap from the top.

First take the guard off the nozzle and remove the nozzle being careful to not let the spring fly. Now pull off the little white tip of the nozzle which less than 1 inch long. Run a needle or fine wire through the main hole running parallel to the hose and make sure you can see it at the head of the nozzel end. It is best to also blow on it to make sure any dirt particles are gone. Even a speck of dust in your solution part of the tank can easily clog it. In 90% of these vacs, that solves the problem and I have repaired at least 50 of them in the past 4 years.

If that doesn't solve it then try this:
Take the impeller on the bottom out by flipping the tank part over, and clean it. Make sure it spins well.

These Hovver Jr Steam Vacs are long lasting and very effective in cleaning spills and stains. Our janitorial company has many of them and in 5 years only one of about 60 has finally been shelved for parts only. I have replaced a few nozzles and several tank latches plus filters, hoses, and the brush and capp on the end of the hose. An additional chore that is made easy with this is defrosting a freezer!

Proheat sprays the water but doesn't suck it back up


Your lid is not on tight on the water collection tank it can't create a section to pull the water out. Usually take it off and putting it back on will solve the problem. good luck& God bless

Steam cleaner doesnt spray water anymore


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

Check to ensure there is a full tank of Bissell Hard Floor Solutions and water. - Make sure the clean water tank is inserted properly by removing the tank and re-inserting it. Ensure the gasket is attached to the water tank and did not fall into the machine. Reattach this gasket if necessary. - Check the valve on the bottom of the clean water tank. The water should come out of the X-valve when pressed. If the valve is blocked, soak the cap and insert in hot tap water until the blockage clears. Check the handle to ensure it is installed properly. Remove the handle and re-attach, making sure the handle is pushed down all the way. If you need to re-install the handle, remove the solution tank and lift the tab as you lift the handle. Check to ensure the solution tube is inserted properly into the floor nozzle. Clean the spray tips by bending a paper clip and inserting this into the spray tips to clean. If you continue to experience no spray, you may need to call Bissel at 1-800-237-7691 for further assistance.

Bissel cleaner won't stop spraying water




Remove the handle and check for continuous spray.
After handle is removed, check to make sure the valve is not stuck in the down position. If the valve is stuck in the down position, push on it manually to get it to come back up. If it is stuck you may need to get a new handle for your unit. This handle is for a variety of the ProHeat models http://www.bissell.com/parts/?sc=part&productid=2775&partid=4449&cid=ccsocial

Check to make sure it will properly fit your model if you need a new handle.

For awhile my bissell quicksteamer works and then it dosen't It dosent spray water out.


Try the following suggestions to get your machine working properly.

- Please check the water level in the tank. It is imperative that the water level be at the full line when beginning your cleaning. Because this machine is gravity fed; if the water level drops too low, there will not be enough pressure to release the fluid.
- Please make sure that the siphon tube for the autoload insert (on the water tank) is perfectly aligned with the front and back of the tank. If the tube is turned to the right side or the left side of the tank the unit will not spray.
- Please check the vent hole on the tank. This hole is clearly marked and the water level must not be above this hole. The vent hole must also be clear.
- Please check the spray bar on your machine. The spray bar is removable so you may take this off if desired and inspect the spray holes to ensure that they are clear.
-Try removing and reinstalling the handle/screw assembly. The trigger mechanism is contained inside the handle. Occasionally it is possible for this part to become misaligned. To check for proper handle installation, try turning the handle from side to side and try to pull the metal part of the handle up or down....if properly installed neither of the previous actions should be possible.

Carpet steamer continually sprays water/cleaner. Can't stop it!


This is a solution for the Bissell Pro Heat, although it may apply to other Bissell steam cleaners as well. This is for the problem of the cleaning solution continually spraying without stop.

I found a quick and simple solution to this problem.

This problem occurs because the valve that allows the solution to flow gets "sticky" and will not close. The valve is engaged by the trigger mechanism in the handle. Squeezing the trigger pushes downward on the valve's plunger, but the spring in the valve that is meant to push the plunger back up to the closed position is not capable of doing so.

Here's the solution:

This valve is white and resides about half way down the vertical handle portion of the cleaner. To get to it, unscrew the 2 black screws that hold the top part of the handle to the bottom part. These are the same screws that you used for assembling the cleaner when you first bought it. Pull the top portion of the handle up and it should slide out.

Now, looking down into the handle body of the remaining portion of the handle, you'll see the top of the white valve. If you push down on the top of the valve (like the trigger mechanism in the top part of the handle you just removed does) it may go down some, but it probably won't go back up by itself like it should.

I found that lubricating this plunger with dish soap was the trick. If you can't get enough access to the valve to do this, you can remove the seven phillips head screws in the lower portion of the handle and pry it apart. I did this. I even took the valve out and put soap around the plunger and into the valve itself. I worked it up and down until it had a quick and positive open/close action.

Reassemble and you should be good to go. You'll notice that the trigger now has a more positive feel to it. I hope this helps.
