Question about Bissell 1698 PowerSteamer ProHeat Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Doesn't emit water in either tools or floor mode.

My steam cleaner is only about 6 months old. It has been working great until one day it just stopped emitting water. Pure soap comes out in the mix mode and nothing in the water setting. My daughter in law has the same model and I switched buckets to see if that made a difference but it didn't. I love this machine and am at a loss how to resolve this problem.

The mixer valve is most likely gummed up with old soap and stuck you will need to take the bottom of the machine apart to get at it. The problem with that is while it is easy to get apart it can be very difficult to get back together properly even for someone that does the job all the time. The only trick I can give you is to put a phone book under the base of the unit this will keep the wheels up and the base level to aid in reassembly. If you do get it apart remove the mixer valve which is directly under the grey mixer knob and rinse it in your sink very well. In the future take the time to empty the unused soap back into the bottle and fill the solution tank with water and rinse out the system before putting it away.

  • There a twist lever on the side to change from floor to tools. If "everything else works" then you have it on tools. Twist it back to floor and it will work.
