Bissell proheat 1698 cleaner not spraying water

Our carpet cleaner is not spraying any cleaner/shampoo mixture, although all belts and the motor seem to be working just fine. Heater is also working fine, and brushes are turning.

I noticed that the straw that draws the fluid in was at the top of the reservoir -- and all of the fluid was at the bottom. Bend the straw so that it is IN the fluid and therefore able to distribute it.

If water is coming out of the hose and not the spray tips,
try taking of the handle ,
put a small thin shim on the bottom of the plunger at the bottom of the handle ,this will make the plunger make full contact with the valve,

    make sure the bottom tank seals and solution bottle seals these are small red round seals are still attached to the bottom of the tank and bottle ,

    also make sure the brush is still spinning round,

    see if water is being dispensed from tho hose.

    make sure the handle plunger wich is at the bottom of the handle is meeting the valve

The little red dial on mine was not turning. Checked all filters and plungers and those seemed fine too. I noticed the red bristle brush was not turning. I turned over the machine and found a bunch of dog hair was caught up on the bottom including the spindle attached to the brush. Cleaned everything out and made sure the brush was turning again. Water and cleaner came out just fine after that.

If it is not dispensing water or solution it can be because the pump belt is stretch or worn and needs to be replaced. Here is the proper replacement pump belt:

My bissellpro heat is making a loud noise as I clean carpets. What can I do?


You have to find out from where the noise are coming (motor or from the front of the cleaner )
Motor- bearings or something gets in the fans of the motor
Front of the cleaner- check roller and holders at the end and 2 plastic covers true which cleaner sucking from carpet. That plastics sometimes get broken and vibrate

Don't know how to use with shampoo


Best to not put shampoo in machine. Put traffic lane cleaner in sprayer with hot water, spray onto carpet after thorough vacuuming, allow cleaner to dwell 5 to 10 minutes and clean and rinse with fresh clean water in machine. For best results do NOT put shampoo in he machine even though it was designed for it. Most of the machines brought in for repairs are clogged with soap gunk. Carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because the soap has been rinsed out of carpet

My bissell carpet shampooer won't spray out water


The tubes inside the machine are probably clogged. Dismantle top hood and disconnect the three lines at the pump, open up entire top housing and inspect heater. Disconnect two tubes and heater and blow out with air compressor. That will spray all the junk, soap that has built up and your machine will be good as new. If you can't do this yourself, contact bissell and ask where your local repair center is

A solution to many "non-spray" problems.


The Scotchguard is going to be dicey inside the Bissell, yes, as you have learned the hard way.

I think the Bissell and the Hoover shampoos sold for their carpet cleaning machines are reasonably safe to use in the Bissell. My own personal favorite for use with the Bissell is the Hoover Premium Pet Formula, which is pricey but effective even if you don't own pets. I also pre-treat stained areas with Resolve Carpet Cleaner, a few minutes before using the Bissell.

I don't know what will happen with your home brew containing Dove. It may work well.

Having trouble shampooing


I found this on a website. Hope it helps others...

by Mainelyvacs in: Kirby
  • First a short explanation of how the Kirby shampoo system works: Kirby uses a “Dry Foam” type of shampoo. Basically, it spreads a shampoo foam solution on the surface of your carpet. This foam needs to stay on the surface of the carpet until it is completely dry (usually 1 to 2 hours depending on temperature and humidity) As the foam dries, it soaks up grease and dirt. You then vacuum the carpet and up comes the shampoo residue along with the absorbed dirt and grease. It does a very good job on the surface but will not extract stains from the bottom of the carpet or carpet pad. Several other brands such as Electrolux, Hoover and Koblenz make Carpet Cleaning machines that use the same system.
    So, you’ve read your manual, you’ve removed the carpet cleaning nozzle and the bag assembly from your Kirby, you’ve installed your shampoo tank and carpet shampooing nozzle tray and you start to shampoo but all you get on your carpet is a puddle of soapy water and no foam. Here’s a few things to look for:
  • Make sure you are using a Dry Foam Shampoo(preferably Kirby) and NOT an extraction shampoo, the Rug Doctor shampoo you had left over from your last rental will not work.
  • Make sure you have the correct mixture. If you are using Kirby Dry foam shampoo you simply fill the tank with water and put a tank cap full of shampoo in with the water. You can use other brands of “Dry Foam” shampoo, but the mixture ratio may be different, so read the label first.
  • Don’t reuse last year’s leftover mixture, it’s probably no good.
  • Make sure a family member didn’t pour any leftover mixture back into the empty shampoo bottle - further diluting a mixture will not produce any foam.
  • Don’t use shampoo that’s seen extreme temperatures.
  • Check the tank and make sure that the sponge filter is in place and if it is in place that it is not deteriorated. The sponge filter is located under the tank at the point where you attach the tank to the hole that you removed the bag assembly from.
  • Check the hose that runs from the tank to the nozzle. It should have a screen in the end that attaches to the tank (older models had a cloth screen with a metal retainer, models after 1989 have a 1 piece metal and plastic screen.

How do i put together my kirby carpet shampoo system?


Vacuum thoroughly before shampooing for maximum cleaning. Then, remove the bag and the Power Nozzle to prepare for shampooing. Turn the Carpet Shampoo System Nozzle Belt Lifter to the right of the center position (fully clockwise) until the green arrows line up. a4bbc62.jpg Slide the slots on the side of the Carpet shampoo system over the outer shoulders of the Carpet Shampoo System Tray. e14fe2e.jpg While pushing up on the Belt with your finger, turn the Belt Lifter left (counter- clockwise looking at it from the front) until the red arrows line up. (The Belt Lifter Hook will catch and stretch the belt.)

Press the bottom Toe Touch Pedal all the way down to raise the front of the Kirby.

While sliding the carpet shampoo system Nozzle/Tray Assembly toward the Kirby and over the Motor shaft, connect the hooks on the bottom rear of the nozzle to the Attaching Bar.

Push the nozzle up against the Kirby and turn the Accessory Lock to the
right (clockwise) to lock the nozzle in place. To engage the belt, turn the Belt Lifter
all the way to the right (clockwise) until the green arrows line up. Then lower the Headlight Hood
