Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Bissell Proheat 2X Carpet/Upholstery cleaner and I can't get the soap and water to come out of the attatchment. The vacuum part is working, but the spray isn't. I can see the fluid is trying to go up the tube but won't spray. Help. Peggy

Hello,

I have a Bissell "Little Green" cleaning machine that acted like yours. I found several clogs in the fluid system. The power for the fluid in my unit is provided by a small AC motor independent from the vacuum motor attached to a small plastic pump. This pump then fed into the input of the heater. Inside the heater is a sort-of mirror-image, redundant labyrinth that the fluid passes through before it exits. My heater was completely blocked on both sides, and exhibited signs of corrosion. My choice was to disable the heater and to instead hook its output line straight to the pump. I also found clogs in the fluid line, particularly where there were bends. One of the clogs was where the vacuum and fluid line made a right angle turn out of the base of the machine. The other was in the trigger handle itself in a jog of the small line that connects the valve to the spray nozzle connector.

I would suggest examining the trigger handle first. The only thing to watch for is the position of a small flat metal spring with a square hole in the center that lives between the trigger and the valve (which is also sprung).

I made good use of some slightly smaller standard aquarium air line so I could blow water and air through without having to actually taste the internal lines of the machine.

My new resolution is to run clean water through the fluid system before putting it to bed!

How can I operate the Bissell PROheat 2X carpet/upholstery cleaner without instructions?


Your solenoid that activates the hand unit is most likely burned up. Bissell 2X machines generally last 4 to 6 uses and a solenoid burns up. This is the only machine that we do not offer repair service for in my store. It is a terribly poor quality design.
BTW, the brushes aren't supposed to turn when the machine is in the upright position.
