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.

Make sure the removable clear plastic tank part is properly seated and locked in. It will lock in even if it is not seated properly.

I took my Bissell proheat apart trying to fix the suction in it. I finally realized that the red filter has to not only be cleaned but also opened to get the suction needed for a good cleaning.

Post your email address and I'll send you pictures of how it comes off. Make sure the tank is removed and the handle is back, so press on the pedal to release the handle. The reason if feels like it's going to break, it's because there's a seal all around the clear cover to ensure suction and water stay within that area. Pull it straight up, with force.
