Question about Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View Upright Steam Vacuum

1 Answer

No water or soap flow

I haven't had any problem with my cleaner until I got it out of the closet to use and it won't dispense any water or soap. Suction is good. Checked all belts, filters, etc. All look good. Any ideas?

    I get the tools to work They will spray and vacuum but I can't get the water to release from the reservoir.
    It has suction and the brush spins.

    The machine has not been used for 6 months and now the main floor cleaner will not let down water or soap but, the hose works fine.

    Used the machine once and put it away for a year or so. Now pull the trigger and now water flow to the floor but the hand held hose water comes out. Brushes working and water sucks up just wont squirt to floor? I have it apart now and will give the heater trick a try.

Does liquid squirt out of the hose. If it does then probably the heater inside the handle asm. is clogged. Take out the two long screw that hold the top handle on and remove it, then near the bottom of the handle, near the bottom are 2 more screw to remove. Then the front of the handle asm. will come off, pull the 2 tubes off of the heater and check the inlets to make sure they are open. It gets clogged up from calcium from saop deposits, but when you are down with the machine, run vinegar and water mix thru to clean out the lines before you put it away. Let me know if this doesn't fix your problem.

It won't dispense water or suction it up


I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I don't know if this will work with your unit... but I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying something else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Soap from dispenser will not release into carpet cleaner.


These are two different problems the first could be a clogged heater soap coagulates in the heater passages and clogs the flow of water to see if this is indeed the problem turn the unit on and try and spray water with the top trigger (floor nozzle) then try to spray at the hand nozzle if you get water at the hand nozzle but not the floor nozzle it is the heater. The hand nozzle water bypasses the heater. Also check the solution or soap tank if you pull it out and there is not red seal on the bottom it may be stuck in the machine and won't create a good seal check to see if it is still in the hole where the tank inserts. As for the unit not turning on that could be a number of issues cord,switch or just over heated. Visit www.stevessewandvac.com for any parts or questions about this machine or any other.

Soap dispenses, water won't


Could be the pump, but this model clogs up easily. You could try taking the noozles off and blow thru them to see if they are clogged or not. Other then that you may have to take it in for repair, It can be problem to find where it is clogged, if the noozles are ok that is. Unless you want to take it apart and try to find the problem yourself.

They all have problems. Hoover over Bissell, or Eureka. But it is hard to know which is better.

This could be due to dried out soap in the works below the dispenser. Try cleaning the hole, putting plain water in the soap dispenser to clean it out further. You could just put some soap in with the water. Be sure to run lots of rinse water through afterward to clean out the heating unit.
