Replace the O ring. Cut the clear one out with a razor blade and buy a standard black 3/4" O ring from Lowes or Home Depot.

When I add water to my Bissell Symphony, it runs right back out on floor


So it sounds like you have either a split in the water reservoir or the tube connecting the reservoir to the heating elements has come off. Looking up parts I couldn't find a new reservoir available. I also don't know how hard it would be to get at the connecting tube and see if it came loose. There should be an access panel, either on the back of the unit or accessible by removing the dirt bin. Then I would pour some more water into it and see where the water is leaking out. If it is coming out the bottom where the steam is supposed to come out then I think the steam chamber has cracked from the heat of the elements. If this is the case, from the reviews I have read (you are not the first to have this issue) then the cost to fix it is going to be higher than getting a new one. I have noticed many many complaints that this item only seems to last for a 2 year period. I don't know how long you have owned the unit. If it is new you may be able to return it for a new unit.

The steam comes out of the water reservoir cap instead of the steam Jet Nozzle.


I can only guess since I have never worked on one of these units, but I think you lost a gasket on the cap. Pressure must build in the reservoir before being forced out the nozzle.

Steam buggy water reservoir cap has apparently been cross threaded, and cannot be removed by twisting or other "encouragement." If I cut it off, where can I get a replacement? Can the machine be used as...


You need to completely annihilate the plastic cap by cutting it off and destroying the remaining plastic to expose the stainless steel insert/plug. You can use either a pipe wrench or 11mm wrench to turn the insert counter-clockwise to unscrew. You will need to use some force to get the plug out since it's basically glued shut by lime deposits in your tap water.


Do not move the slotted cap or else this will need to be adjusted so that all your water doesn't squirt out before turning to steam.


Next time only use distilled water. Store with the cap off. Grease the inner and outer threads after every use and wipe it off completely before use so it doesn't mix with the steam and turn to vapor.

Hello, no this is not normal. You just need a new O-ring. This is about a 1 dollar fix. The original O ring is clear rubber but a 3/4" standard O ring will work just fine. You can get these at Lowes or Home Depot.
