If this unit has an onboard heater ( a little red lite in the center of the handle) then most likley it is the problem. You see the heater which is located inside the large portion of the handle has a very small passage that snakes its way throught and heats the water as it passes. The problem is that the water and soap are mixed before the heater which is very very hot and when you turn the unit off and the solution stops moving and hardens in that little passage while the heater cools. To fix this you have to take the handle appart allong with the heater and clean it out. To prevent this in the future make sure to turn the heater off and run just clean water through the unit before you put it away. This unit also has a belt that runs the pump check to see if the belt is in good shape it could be stretched but not broken I would suggest replacing it anyway just to be sure. You can buy the belt allong with other parts for this machine at www.stevessewandvac.com

Dirty steam cleaner help


You can just run plain water thru it. But, the best way to clean it is to first knock all the stuff loose you can with a brush.

If you want to put detergent in it., use use liquid laundry detergent -- a small amount

Foot pedal broken
Posted by Monte79 on May 28, 2008
I have Bissell Power Steamer Clear view IIII #3105403. I let someone borrow it (mistake #1) and he over extended the foot pedal that angles the upright during use. The pedal is still connected, but the power steamer is locked in the upright position. There is also a bit of dirty water in the bucket, and i cannot empty it because it's basically locked in now. HELP

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.

Sorry you are having a problem with your Bissell, it sounds like he bent the handle release lever and you either need to bend it back or replace it depending on the level of damage to the item. Please feel free to contact the Bissell factory to see the best way to fix the problem, it is not an expensive fix however so contact your local vac dealer or get a referral from the Bissell factory for the nearest Bissell authorized dealer in your area.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Hi. My unit was working fine. Then my wife started using it. She was going back and forth using the Power Drive feature. Now, the entire handle slips off, and the unit is not working correctly at all. Any ideas

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The Bissell 1698 Power Steamer ProHeat Upright has a – let’s call it a power drive rod that has come apart and is no longer working and needs to be re-connected. The best results of the power steamer is that the power steamer works better on the pull back, which means that you dispense the water, the brushes scrub the carpet and the vacuum picks up the water and it goes into the recovery tank – if you go forward use the trigger assm to dispense the water so I t get a chance to soak in but the best results are on the pull back. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
