Doesn't seem to be sucking up dirt well


Bagless vacuum cleaners leave the bulk dirt in a receiver, but they still rely on a paper air filter to trap fine particles of dust. All the air that the vacuum moves passes through that paper filter. When the filter plugs up, it has to be cleaned or replaced. The bagless "primary filters" are much more expensive than vacuum cleaner bags, but if you can afford to replace it whenever the machine's suction is impeded, its the tidyest solution. You can remove the filter and tap it inside a waste can to dislodge some of the dirt that's plugging it. You can use another vacuum cleaner to clean it somewhat better than just tapping it. (It doesn't have to be *your* other vacuum cleaner, it could be borrowed, at the car wash, etc.) You can use compressed air to almost all of of the dirt plugging it, but you'll want to do it outside somewhere that making a clod of dust is acceptable or at least unnoticed. After a dozen or more cleanings the pores of the paper filter will become too plugged to clean well even with compressed air and it will have to be replaced.

Pet hair, sand and large particulate are least likely to plug these filters. Kitty littler, which is pressed pellets of fine clay, clogs these filters very rapidly. The clay pellets break up into very fine dust as they pass through the vacuum and whirl in the dirt cannister. Avoid vacuuming kitty litter, or any other fine clay into a bagless machine as much as possible.

My steam cleaner is not spaying water on the carpet?


I found that if the water is not hot enough it won't create the suction needed for the water to spray. If you have use it in the past it could be that the water tubing could be clod.

How do i change the fill tube


Cut the old fill tube from the lower housing and remove the top adapter from the old tube. Clean the bag and housing to be sure the spout the tube attaches to is clean. Be certain to use the fill tube used in the Generation 3 and 4 models which has a wire in it. Wet the lower few inches of the tube and screw it fully onto it's base in the lower housing. The upper adapter can be attached with cable ties.

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.

Will not spray water


When this happens you usually have a blockage in the tubing. Old cleaning solution gets dried up and hardens and then blocks the tubes. You need to take the tubing off and clean it all out or untill you find the blockage. Once you get it spraying agin clean the system with hot water and flush it all out. Always spray just water for a while after you use any cleaning solutions and this will keep the tubing cleaned out. Does this help? do you need more assistance let me know.

Followed directions on filling water and solution tanks. When I use the cleaner the cleaning solution is not being dispensed.


The tubing is clogged, you need to take the tubing off and clean it out or some how force some hot water thru the tubing and clean it out. this happens when you don't run clean water thru thesystem after using the cleaning solution. The solution dries and hardens in the tube.
here is some other tips that should help you get it back up and running

My shampooer is not putting out soap in a steady stream.It is like it is clodded up. I have taken all the parts apart that I can and cannot find any clods.


The plastic screen which suppose to be attached to the shampooer tank (under the dial) is probably stuck in the hos remove it from the hose and attach it to the tank. See if you put correct proportions of shampoo and make sure that water is warm.

Does the cleaner solution go in small tank. Should the little tube be down in solution?


http://www.bissell.com/Product_Search.aspx?Criteria=1699
Above is a link to bissell.com where you can get the full user manual. But to answer your questions, the cleaning solution does go into the small tank with the tube, the tube should be arched and go to the bottom corner of the small tank. Clean hot (not boiling) tap water goes into the inner bladder of the big tank. Fill it till you can see the water near the top.
