Easiest way to attach spring to the back wheel base?


As long as the black piece still has the "nubs" on both sides at the turn in the "L" shape and the base isn't broke then this is going to be easy. There is a groove on the main unit the little wheel fits into that groove, the "nubs" fit into small holes on the swivel down piece, and the spring fits between the small side of the "L" shape and the bottom of the swivel down piece..

There is a spring and a silver ball that seals the water from running out of the clean water tank, it fell out and I do not know how it goes back in. Bissel 1720 little green plus green machine


if it is from the tank,,,bad news,,, you have to replace the tank as a unit. according to the picture I see is an assembly and gives no parts breakdown on it exept the complete tank. there is a cover on top of the solution tank and is possible it goes there. that you can replaced but spring-ball part dont show on graphics. update.... cover is no longer available and tank price is about $23.00 at sears website part# 603-1204.

Good luck to you.

Make sure there is liquid in both the Tank-in-Tank and the SmartMix Bottle and check for spray through the upholstery hose. If the hose does not spray please check the following:


- Remove the belt access door and inspect the pump belt to ensure it is not broken, worn or stretched. You may also check the belt by turning on the power and watching the brush on the bottom of the machine. If the brush rotates the belt is not broken.

- Check for proper placement of the o-ring on the SmartMix Cap Insert (some o-rings are detachable and need to fit over the straw; others are molded to the cap).

- Check for liquid in the base of the machine where the SmartMix Bottle sits (SmartMix Reservoir). If there is no liquid in the reservoir, the neck on the SmartMix Bottle may be undersized, the cap will not make proper contact with the unit and the smart mix bottle will need to be replaced.

- Check for the black or red tank gasket on the SmartMix Bottle Cap and on the bottom of the Tank-in-Tank Assembly. If gasket is lodged in base of unit or has been lost, reattach gasket on auto-load or order new gasket if appropriate.

- Check the valves on the bottoms of the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle to make sure water/solution will come through when the "x" valve is depressed. Bladder or SmartMix bottle may be empty or the valve may be blocked internally.

- Check if the small rounded window tabs on the top edge of the Floor Nozzle Window are locked in their mating slots on the base of the machine and not inadvertently lifting the tank up out of place.

Hi my bissel proheat 2 will not shoot out water


I had this problem, too. My machine is only a year old, so I was hoping it wasn't the pump already. I called the help line, and surprise - no help. They recommended a fix-it place, but the fix-it guy wouldn't help me over the phone. So I fiddled around with it and found the problem - the plug thingy underneath the main tank. The spring mechanism inside it was stuck, preventing any water from going thru it.

Lift out the main tank in the front and bring it to the sink. Feel inside the plug underneath. While holding the tank upright over the sink, push inside the plug. Water should squirt out the bottom of the plug. If it doesn't, turn the tank over, unscrew the plug, and try pushing the inside of it. It is spring-loaded like a ball-point pen. When I pushed the inside of the plug a few times, screwed it back in, and then put the tank on again, the machine worked like new. If your plug doesn't spring, maybe it needs to be cleaned out or replaced. If a new plug is needed, it probably doesn't cost as much as bringing it in for service. It's a small, simple part, and can probably be ordered online. Good luck!

Won't dispense cleaning solution


I had this same problem. There is a solution posted elsewhere on this website. Search for Hoover Floormate H3000.

The following solution is the one I tried: Remove the fluid dispensing tank and put a small dab of hot glue on the tip of the blue/greyish "plunger" piece that is located in the middle of the black rubber circle. Let the hot glue dry (this forms an extension to the plunger piece...) and replace the fluid tank.

I did this and my machine is working properly again! Whoever posted this solution was very helpful!

Rubber valve at bottom of blader tank


It is called the (#69)auto load asm, part # 2107041. It would be wise to replace it, It will come as one piece. Is the bladder ok? You can call Bissell and maybe buy the part thru them or they can tell you where to go to get it(800) 237-7691 ) .
