    I think that valve is broken, the diverter knob just wobbles back and forth, but how do I get to it to replace it?

    I have the Bissel power steamer pro. I have used both the carpet and upolstry tools sucessfully, but this last time the carpet brush works fine in all respects, but when I switch to the upolstry tool, the carpet brush keeps rotating and the upolstry tool does nothing. I am desperate, a cup of coffee and a bowl of raspberry icecream got spilled on a white couch on the same day! We (hubby and I) checked belts, valves, connections etc and could not find the solution.....any suggestions. Also the owners manual has no instructions for the upolstry tool itself. If anyone has these instruction a copy would be greatly appreciated.

When you turned the diverter knob, did the gray diverter valve open up? If not, this would be why no suction, it has to be open for the hose and closed to suction from the floor. Alot of times, the valve breaks and won't work. Is the black ovule shaped gasket on te top of the window and the edge of the tank, if gone, then there will be no suction. Is the filter on the tank lid clean?

No suction for the hand tools


If your suction is ok for normal cleaning and bad for just the hand tools then you have a blockage in the flexible hose or the "u pipe" at the bottom of the flexible hose. Un-clip the u pipe and check it for blockage. Un-clip the hose from the vacuum and you should be able to look through it when letting it hang straight down.

Assuming this is the pro heat version
Most likely you have some debris blocking the system. You need to follow the hand tool cleaning instructions.
remove the hand tool and manually wash it
select the tools cleaning option
place the tube in a bowl of clean water and allow it to **** the water up - this should clean out any blockages in the pipe.

Can't get my bissel steam cleaner to sucktion


Check on board switch for tools only or vacuum, is switched to vacuum, as majority of vacuum suction power is diverted to hose/ hand held devices. See if vacuum hose has suction as well? The unit may be clogged with carpet fibresas well and the unit may have to be taken apart and cleaned thoroughly.

Is there a switch to turn-off the tools so that


On the Hoover U6311-900 there is no switch that turns off the suction to the tool hose. That hose is attached to the head of the vacuum on the side via a spring loaded "door". Just twist the hose to remove it, the door will close and you will have full suction again.

Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray


I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

No suction for the hand held tools


For the attachments, turn the knob on the left to tool setting, that will open the valve at the top to allow suction thru the hose, then squeeze the trigger to spray. Close it when you are done or you won't have suction down below.

If the water is running out, either the valve at the bottom of the tank isn't working right or youy have a water line off, probably have to take off the top cover to check that out.

Can't get water to spray out of the hand tool nozzle


When you attach the main suction hose to the front of the machine, you also have to connect the soultion hose to a valve located on the side of the machine. When the machine is running, take a small screwdriver and depress the centre of this valve. You should get a spray of water out of the valve which will confirm the valve and pump is working. Now, connect the small solution hose, making sure you push it on all the way. When you pull the trigger on the handle of the hose, you should get spray. If it does not, you may have a plugged nozzle sprayer.
