I had the same problem with mine and it was an easy fix. If you remove the soap holder without putting the selector dial to "water only" you will lose the prime in the hose that goes to the water chamber. It takes a few minutes of pulling the water trigger to regain that prime, but it will come back eventually. Easiest fix, of course, is to always remember to dial to water only when you need to add cleaning solution..

How to unclog a bissell proheat turbo carpet cleaner


proheat 9300

Remove the water tank. You will see 2 red tabbed plastic spray tubes.(where the spray comes out if not clogged) Pinch the clips to remove from the machine. Then you will need to pinch the hose clips to remove the red tabs from the hose. Clean out those red spray nozzles. Next step: have a towel ready and fill the solution tank with water. Put the solution (not water) tank on to where the water tank would go. Place the machine selection knob to rinse/wet only. Now with towel under the hoses that you removed the red tabs. Turn on the machine and pull the trigger to activate the water. You should see water flow out of the hoses that had the red tabs on them. If not, release and pull again the trigger several times. If only 1 hose has water coming out of it then block the one that works and try the process above again to de clog the one that isn't working. Good luck.

Since the last use of my new ProHeat X2 carpet


Check the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from floor to tool mode). On the underside of this section is a small (about 1 inch square) red plastic piece with a little door on it. Flip open the door and you will probably find it is clogged. Clean it out and you should have full suction again.

Bissell pro heat will not extract water from the carpet


Try checking the top section of the machine (where the dial is located to switch it from floor to tool) and there is a little red plastic piece about 1 inch square on the inside of it. This is a lint filter that has a little door on it. Open the door or remove the entire thing to clean it out. It is probably completely blocked with hair, etc.. which is why you have no suction. Replace it after you clean it out and hopefully your problem will be solved!

Our machine works 3 minutes - and then 10 minutes it does not


The usual suction problem with these things is related to a clogged lint filter. I had the same problem as you with my carpet being completely soaked. Try checking the lint filter. It is located in the top clear plastic section (the one with the dial to switch from tool to floor use). There is a small (1 inch square) red plastic filter on the under side. Try flipping open the little door and you will probably find it clogged with hair and carpet fibre. Clean it out and hopefully you will have suction again.

Bissell 9300 carpet cleaner


You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck

Bissell carpet cleaner won't spray water or cleaner


If I may! In most cases the heater is clogged. It might be clogged with soap that has harden over time. You need to take the handle apart. You will see a metal box(thats the heater) besides the wires there are two tubes connected to the heater. remove the tubes but label or watch which tube goes where. now turn the heater upside down. there are 6 screws on the side and 1 in the middle. remove them carefully. the 6 on the side have a small gaskets under them..you don't want to lose them. the 1 in the middle has no gasket, now the bottom plate of the heater can be taken off (there is a gasket with that plate ...be careful . you will now see the long channels inside the heater and need to clean it. the holes where the tubes where connected have to be clean also but carefully. the metal is soft.so it bends. now put it all back. hope this helps. if you want to keep this from happening.the best way is to run clear water after you are done.this will remove any soap in the machine which will harden after the machine drys out. hope I helped .

and to mr. reddevil6 I am learning lots from you. Thanks

Water and clearen not coming out.


If the modle is an old modle the heater could be blocked,or if it a new modle try taking of the of the handle and ad a small shim to the bottom of the handle plunger to make it a little bit longer ,the plunger might not be reaching the valve,
also unscrew the clear cap which which is on top of the red spinner to see if the white filter under the spinner is clean and free from debris.
when you put the cap back on make sure its not to thigt and the spinner move freely, if the suction is poor make sure the red lint filter in the clean water tank is clean
