Bissell 1699 not dispensing water

I've cleaned the filters, re-filled the tanks, brush is moving but the flow indicator isn't. No water comes out the bottom. Also, when using the power hand-held brush it turns very slowly.

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

How do I get Bissell Proheat 2X to work. Not dispensing water.


Did you clean the filter on the water tank. It's generally a red screen type device. Additionally, there is a filter under the Flow Indicator, unscrew the cap, lift out the propeller, lift the filter screen and clean it. Reassemble in reverse order. If you occassionally run one and half cups of white vinager through the machine it will clean out the calc buildup. Additionally, the filters should be cleaned after each use.

My Bissell P:rolneat will not dispense water through the floor unit or the wand.


Check the filters. Flow Indicator: Turn Indicator cap counter-clockwise, remove rotor, next remove filter. Clean the filter and replace items in reverse order. Additionally, now is a good time to clean the Lint Filter on the tank cap. These filters are recommended to be cleaned after each use. Hope that helps, if not Bissell Consumer Care can be reached at 1-800-237-7691.

Ther is no suction in the power tool hose . the soap is dispensed but no suction or at best a very very very faint suction


This sounds like a clogged Lint Filter. The filter (looks like a screen) is located on the Tank Cap. Remove it and clean and put it back. Don't run the unit without the filter. If that doesn't work then try the Flow Indicator Filter (Turn the Flow Indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it, lift out the rotor and filter. Clean filter and reassemble in reverse order. You can contact Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 for a person to person contact if you need more assistance.

Used bissell how do i know if parts are missing


The main water tank is two staged; you put clean water in and the flexible bladder allows the machine's pickup suction to fill. This removes the need for two tanks (but it's harder to clean out the suction tank area). Just remember to clean the filters each use. There's one on the underneath of the clean water tank cap and one under the FLOW INDICATOR cap. You may need to get a User's Guide. Try calling the Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 Hope that helps.

Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View uses very little soap.


The valve at the bottom of the soap tank may have gone bad, Also try running a mix of water and vinegar(not on carpet) to see if it will clean the system out. The system may just need cleaning out.

Flow Indicator Not Moving, Not Dispensing Anything


The water tank and the solution tank both have red gaskets that attach to the bottoms of the tanks. Make sure they are on properly, I just had the same problem and spent hours taking apart the machine and inspecting lines to find out it was a gasket.

On my machine the red gasket for the solution got stuck in the chasis for the machine. The bissel website alludes to this, but isn't very clear.

Other posters talk about the heaters, or the lines being clogged and I immediatley inspected these areas, turns out it was a gasket that was hiding in the chasis. Both the water tank and the solution tank should have one, and make sure they don't get nestled in the chasis!

Flow Indicator Not Moving, Not Dispensing Anything


Does water squiret out of the hose, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle to see if it is clogged where the 2 water lines hook to it. The other reason, you may ghave a bad pump. But check the back edge to make sure the top isn't coming loose from the base. Check the bottom of the tank to be sure round seal is on the tank on the cap and valve. Sometimes they come off and wind up in the hole.
