Plug the PowerSteamer into a proper outlet and turn ON the Power switch. While pressing the trigger, slowly make several passes over the area to be cleaned. Caution: Do not overwet. Turn the machine Power switch OFF and let BISSELL Advanced Deep Cleaning Formula dissolve the tough soil for 1-2 minutes.
Always use genuine BISSELL 2X formulas to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your machine. Fill water to water line and then fill up to formula line with BISSELL 2X concentrated formula. Place formula tank into the slot in the back of the machine for a snug fit.
A possible cause might be that the tank is not properly seated. To assure the tank is seated properly, pick it up and re-seat is so it sits snugly on the unit. If this doesn`t fix the problem, make sure the tank is assembled properly. To make sure they are both latched properly, pick the tank up by its handle.
Steam cleaners heat steam to a minimum temperature of 212 °F (100°C) and emit powerful jets of hot vaporized water that can loosen dirt, kill germs as well as break up grease, stains and even mould.
Add 2 oz of BISSELL 2X Formula to the tank Measure 4 oz (2 capfuls) and pour into tank. Fill the clean water/solution tank with hot (not boiling) tap water to the WATER fill line Add formula to the indicated fill line (approximately 0.5 oz) on the solution tank.
Where do I find the model/serial number of my machine? Model and serial numbers are printed on a label, which is usually located on the back or on the base of the unit.
We recommend using distilled or demineralized water in place of tap water. Do not use any chemicals in the water tank.
Check your hose for any cracks or holes that can cause loss of suction. You may also have a clog in the lower hose. Pull down and at an angle to disconnect. A clog in the main hose could also be the problem.

Soap is not dispensing out of the soap dispenser on the bissell
Pour some hot water in the machine and see if the hose is clogged. Is the pump making any noise when you hit the switch like it is trying to pump?
Rainbow shampooer The soap dispenser on my Rainbow is not dispensing soap when I flip the switch to ‘soap’ mode. All connections are intact. All plastic hoses are intact. What do you think is going on? The soap bottle connects to a little straw that appears to be free of obstruction, however, it connects into a sealed casing on the hose.
The little “wash/rinse” switch on some of the Aquamate units shuts off the soap flow by kinking the tube inside the housing. If you leave the switch in the rinse position (therefore, kinked) when you’re done using it, it may dry in the kinked position. Taking apart the top part of the handle where all this mechanism is and cleaning out the tube by soaking it in some warm water for a while and reshaping the kinked part before you reassemble it may help solve this problem.

I just want to make sure that you still would like help with your Bissell. As you may see from my profile, when I help someone out, I always spend considerable time answering questions, taking pictures, and really making sure that you know how to fix the problem. Before I spend so much time doing this, I like to follow up and make sure that A. there’s a real customer I’m answering, and B. that you haven’t already fixed your machine. If you’d like me to walk you through this troubleshooting, please just add a comment here on the repair page.
We have an Emerson hands-free soap dispenser that won’t work. We’ve installed brand new batteries and it still won’t dispense soap. The red light comes on to indicate it’ s working
but no soap will come out.
We have 5 Emerson hands-free soap dispensers that don’t work. Tried new batteries, light comes on, but no soap comes out. How can we get our money back?
The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing.
I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water
The solution to your problem is already solved, since your soap dispenser is still under warrant,
What i will suggest is that you contact the company that supply you this product and explain everything to them, it is most likely they give you the solution to your problem or send someone to your aid, or can even replace the product for you.
I purchased my Bissel PowerSteamer Clearview a few years or so ago, and cannot find where I filed the manuals. If I find the actual seriel number on the Bissel PowerSteamer Clearview, Is there a way that I can purchase another manual? I really do not have any problem with my Bissel, but being I am 75 years of age and do not use it myself anymore, I want to give it to a daughter of mine (but I would like to have the manuals that go with it to give to her also).
No need my friend. Go here. All documentation is here…and….it’s free! Hope this helps : )
I have a bissell proheat 12 amp cleaner and the soap seems to just all come out at the same time. I fill the soap dispenser and within a minute it is empty and there is no soap coming out on the carpet. Any suggestions?
