Question about Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum

1 Answer

It won't **** up water except with tool attachment

My vaccum has worked great for about a year. I pulled off the clear front to clean out the lint buildup, but since then it will not **** up the water when using the regular vacuum, it will squirt the water just fine! It will **** it up when I use the hose attachment, but that is too much work for the entire floor! I have made sure to switch from the tool attachment setting to the floor setting, but it doesn't help. Is there a seal loose or something! Help, my carpets are soaked!!!

    My Bissell 8920 is doing the same thing.. it will not **** up the water and my carpets are soaking wet (mine wont work with the attachment). I found a small rip in the inner bladder and am wondering if this might be the problem?

    I am having the same problem and my black seal is still there and in place. It is cleaning my carpets great but is not sucking the water back up into the container. What else can I check for?

When you took off thew clear nozzle, you must have lost the black oblong gasket that sits at the junction at the top for the tank lip to sit on. Without it, you lose suction at that point.

The upholstery tool on my bissell lift off deep cleaner sprays bUT doesn't suction?


The lint filter on the water tank cover may be the reason for that. Try cleaning the Filters. Clean the Flow Indicator Filter: Unscrew the Flow Indicator Cap to remove it. Lift out the rotor and the filter is under it. Lift out the filter and clean. The Water Tank Filter looks like a screen on the underneath the front area of the cover. It's held in with tension and just pulls out. Clean it and replace it. Hope that Helped but if it didn't call the consumer care at 1-800-237-7691

It cleans as a carpet cleaner but when pulling the handle down to wash no water


Mine had a clogged heater owing to corrosion in the metal inlet/outlet area. I pulled the handle apart and pulled the hoses off the heater and scraped out the crud, and it's worked fine ever since.
If it's not that, then it could be the pump.
If it is the first problem, ALWAYS run clear water water through the unit for a bit before you put it away after using it. I believe that it is the soap that accelerates the corrosion.
Good luck!

No suction from upholstery attachment


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

Problem: Low suction
Problem: Clean solution won’t
dispense
Problem: Brushes/brush indicator
won’t rotate during floor cleaning
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Not firmly plugged in
• Plug unit in firmly
• No voltage In wall plug
• Check fuse or breaker
• Blown fuse/tripped breaker
• Replace fuse/reset breaker
Possible cause
Possible solution
• Recovery tank full/automatic
shut off engaged
• Remove and empty recovery tank
• Blockage In tool on end of hose
• Remove tool and clear blockage
• Recovery tank lid not on
correctly
• Make sure lid is on securely
• Recovery tank front panel not
replaced after stair or upholstery
cleaning
• Replace recovery tank front panel
(page 14)

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.

GOODLUCK!!!!

Bissell carpet cleaner


If water is spraying from the tool hose, then check the heater for a blockage. If the heater port is blocked, then the water can't flow back down to the spray nozzles, which could also be clogged. Most likely a clogged heater, it is in the handle.

Bissel Proheat Carpet cleaner


My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.
