Dear Schonaldo, Thank you indeed for your reply. I phoned Bissel to locate a service centre close by as I did not have the expertise to do any repairs. The Bissel call centre referred me to their in-house service people who confirmed your finding that the machine is gravity fed, however they also suggested that sometimes there is a problem because of an air lock. Their suggested solution was to fill the tank and depress the trigger a few times and, if this did not work, to hold the trigger down for a period. It took me a day or so to get back to the machine and it could have been that the air lock was dispelled by time, however, when I re-filled the tank and depressed the trigger everything started working again. I wonder also whether I may have put too much cleaner solution into the tank, which may could have further exacerbated an airlock situation. Alternatively, I notice that the air vent at the top of the tank is very small and I have inserted a needle to open it up a little, thereby creating more pressure. Anyway hoorah - everything is working OK.

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 know. Pump is bad.

You just need to replace the cap and valve part # 2036919, You should be able to order the part thru Bissell.com, or they will tell you who you can call close to you.

first you have to remove the filter in the vac then at the bottom of the vac tyhere should be a cap you remove and screw a water hose on and run it out side then when the vac fills the water will run out put the main hose on the suction side

SOURCE: hoover steam vac not sucking

I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

Bissell Proheat 2x. The pump wont prime. The water is full and the tanks are sealed. Second time we hace used it.


I had the same problem. I took the whole thing apart and cleaned all the lines, water heater, brushes, etc. After putting it together the tools sprayed great and the side sprayers but the water tank would not allow the water out. THEN I saw this. http://www.bissell.com/FAQDetail.aspx?id=1122 and I was finally able to figure it out. So what I found out was that the water tank gasket was damage. lol

No water from my Bissell


I AM BISSELL WARRENTY DEALER, AND MOST COMMON PROBLEM WITH THESE UNITS ARE CLOGGS IN THE LINES AFTER THE HEATER OR IN THE HEATER THEM SELFS VERY DIFFICULT TO GET INTO. THE PUMP IS A DIRECT DRIVE WITH NO BELT AND I HAVE NEVER HAD TO REPLACE ONE NOT TO SAY ITS NOT THE PROBLEM BUT UNLIKELY IF AT ALL POSSIBLE TRY TO GET SOME FLOW AND TRY RUNNING SOME SORT OF LIME AWAY CLEANER INTO SYSTEM AND LET SIT THIS WILL HELP PREVENT CLOGGS AND POSSIBLY CLEAR CLOG OTHER WISE YOU WILL HAVE TO DISSASSEMBLY MACHINE AND CLEAR HEATER AND LINES MANUALLY. IF YOU GET WATER TO ATTACHMENT HOSE BUT NOT NOZZLE YOU MAY CHECK THE RED TIPS FOR CLOGGS. THESE CAN BE REMOVED WITH OUT TAKING THE MACHINE APART.
