Bissell Proheat Clearview Force won't produce steam


Either the electrical connection to the water-heating element are corroded or broken. Worse, the element itself my be dead/non-functioning. You would have to dis-assemble the machine to find out what can be repaired or replaced.

please go to http://www.sharkclean.com/products/shark-pro-steam-pocket-mop-s3601/support/how-to-videos.shtml and see the video for better troubleshooting and fix it.
However , if the system has heating element you must use the VOM for test continuity, if they donot the heating is faulty.

I purchased a Seal-A-Meal roll to make my own bags but can't figure out how to use it. I have a model VS108. Is it possible to seal without vacuuming?


On most models of vacuum sealing systems, you cut off the roll the size of bag you need. Slip one open end of the bag just on top of the heating element over it about 1/8-1/4" and press down the lid to seal the bottom of the bag. Fill the bag and then place the open end far enough into the vacuum cavity over the heating element and close the lid and press down and hold until the cycle finishes. If you don't want a vacuum, just put enough bag material to cover the heating element but not into the vacuum cavity. Hope this helps

DZ9080 IRON IS NOT VERY OLD, BUT HAS HEATING AND STEAMING PROBLEMS. IT MAY BE ALL HEATING RELATED! MY WIFE WILL SOMETIMES JUST LEAVE IT "ON" FOR TWO HOURS AND THEN IT WILL START STEAMING AGAIN. I CANNOT...


I couldn't find any warranty information on this iron, but I suspect that the heating element either has a faulty connection or part of it has cracked, making contact at time, but poor contact at other times. The unit will have to be taken apart and inspected and troubleshot, and that's why I was inquiring about the warranty. Someone in a review of them said that their website and 800 number weren't working, so you might try to refer to your manual that came with it for support. Another person who uses them regularly said they just last for about 3 years before needing to be replaced. If the warranty isn't valid for you, I would disassemble it and try to see if an electrical connection to the element is cracked, perhaps, or has heat damage, then try to secure it. If the element's cracked or damaged by heat, it will need to be replaced. There's a chance the control unit's faulty, and any fix could run into some money. If you do have it serviced, get an estimate first. Sometimes it's just better to bite the bullet and get a new one. Good luck, and hope this helps.
