How to Identify and Fix Common Vacuum Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced Vacuum Technicians :

BISSELL offers four different formulas specifically designed for use with the Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine®: Advanced, Pet, Oxy and Allergen.
The ProHeat® carpet deep cleaner is an Advanced Deep Cleaning System with Triple Action Advanced Brushes to scrub, clean and groom carpet. The built-in heater continuously heats hot tap water to maximize cleaning effectiveness. 6 Rows of cleaning. Rotating powerbrush loosens and removes deep down dirt from carpet.
Your dirty water tank may not be secured tightly. Check the rubber tab on the dirty water tank and press firmly on all edges to secure it tightly. The accessory hose door also needs to be closed securely. Check the door and make sure it is locked in place.
Using the marks on the inside of the formula cap, add 7 oz of BISSELL 2X formula to tank. Add water to the tank until you reach the original formula fill line. The next time you fill your tank, use the new fill lines instead of measuring the formula. For more help, download a template.
One floor cleaner for the whole home

Our multi-surface cleaners can clean carpets, rugs, hard wood floors, tiles, laminate, linoleum and even rubber floor mats. Simply switch between modes on the device depending on the surface.

Can I use cleaning formulas other than the BISSELL brand? It`s possible to use others, but we recommend against it. Our formulas contain no dyes, phosphates or optical brighteners, and will produce optimal cleaning performance when used in combination with BISSELL carpet cleaning machines.
Besides vinegar, baking soda can also be used in the Bissell powersteam pro carpet cleaner. This solution is great for removing pet odors, which can be embarrassing to visitors and unpleasant for residents. It is a great alternative to cleaning solutions that contain harmful chemicals.
The ProHeat® Carpet Cleaner has a built-in heater to heat tap water up to 25 degrees hotter for optimum cleaning.
But you might be a little disappointed if you expect this tool to heat up its own water. Despite its name being the Bissell ProHeat, this carpet cleaner doesn`t actually heat up the water it uses to clean your floors.

A: Yes, you can leave clean formula/water in the tank when not in use.

It`s the foam that brings the dirt out of the carpet. Dirt particles stick to it, and it is this that makes your water dirty when it is sucked up. If your carpet cleaning solution is too foamy, or you leave foam in the carpet, more dirt will be attracted to it.
An optional step that we recommend if you have time is to go back over the cleaned carpet again with only hot tap water in the tank (no formula this time). This will remove any leftover formula and give your carpets an extra clean.
Detergent Carpet Cleaner

For synthetic carpets: Mix ¼ teaspoon of a translucent liquid dishwashing detergent, such as Dawn or Joy, into one cup of lukewarm water. For natural fiber carpets: Mix one teaspoon of translucent liquid dishwashing detergent, such as Dawn or Joy, into 1 cup of lukewarm water.

Fits all ProHeat 2X ModelsEasily attaches to the bottom of your machine for use on hard floor surfacesSafe for use on virtually all sealed hard floor surfaces including sealed hardwood, linoleum, vinyl, ceramic tile, granite & marble.
One, BISSELL formulas are made for cleaning carpet, fabric & upholstery, and hard floors. We don`t specialize in concrete cleaning products. And two, any chemical that is strong enough to remove stains from concrete is very dangerous to be around – and that should give you an idea just how tough concrete stains are.
How long does it take carpets and upholstery to dry after carpet cleaning? On the average, it will take approximately 2-4 hours for carpet and upholstery to dry after being carpet cleaned. To expedite the drying process, you will want to use a fan and increase your air circulation.
In a spray bottle, mix one cup of distilled water, one cup of distilled white vinegar, and one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid. Shake well to mix and label the bottle.
The short answer is that you should not use vinegar for carpet cleaning. There is truth to the idea you can use vinegar as a natural disinfectant for cleaning but it cannot remove dirt or soil from a surface or from carpet.
Laundry Detergents aren`t Formulated for Carpet Cleaning

Cleaning solutions are specifically formulated to clean and not damage the machines they`re used in and the material they`re treating. Laundry soap is designed to be used in washing machines to clean clothing.

Can I use cleaning formulas other than the BISSELL brand? BISSELL does not recommend using ANY cleaning products other than BISSELL specified products in our carpet washers.
On page 3 of the User`s Guide it plainly states: “Never put descaling , aromatic, alcoholic or detergent products into the steam cleaner, as this may damage it or make it unsafe for use.” White vinegar is considered a “descaling” product.
Fill up with warm water.

Hot water loosens and softens dirt more quickly, making it easier to remove, and it also helps to kill bacteria. That`s why we recommend filling up your carpet cleaner`s tank with warm water.

Yes, I`ve used cold, tap water and have had good results as well.
You must fill it with heated water.

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet – HELP!!!! We’re read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.
ANSWER : First things first. It’s only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected under warranty.
.
.Otherwise, The jets on this unit clog easily, there are two of them and you can locate them under the recovery tank towards the front of the machine, and blow them out with an air compressor. To prevent the jets from clogging in the future make sure to flush all shampoo out of the machine with clean water when done using it. That is most likely your problem.
.
.If it is leaving black streaks on your carpet it could be coming from a burnt belt or melted brushroller part, in which case inspect the belts and brushrollers and replace the damaged pieces.
.
.I hope this helped

.Good Luck

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there’s a little thingy that should be spinning or turning….. When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI – I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn’t wet. Any tips? The manual doesn’t help.
ANSWER : You need to replace the pump belt. Here is the belt you need:

Bissell ProHeat Belt

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet
ANSWER : Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn’t blocked as well.

Our bissell proheat carpet cleaner model 3750-T will not **** the water and cleaner through. Is there a schemetic available for free on this or a similar model
ANSWER : The water sprayers on your Bissell are probably clogged. I had this problem this morning, myself, with my machine, about 15 months old. They get clogged up with mineral deposits. This is a *fairly* easy thing to fix yourself. Read all the way to the end before trying this fix. My Bissell is a different model than yours, but many are similar.
.
.Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water container pieces from the top of the base. You’ll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell’s base, about .75″ x .75″. These spray water on your brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell’s handle. These water sprayers tend to clog. See the metal spring running up the hose, behind each red water sprayer? As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, use a screwdriver or other tool under the spring to wedge up the hose, to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Stick a finger in the hole of the base of the Bissell where the sprayer was mounted and run it around the edges there including on the underside of the base to clean out any gunk you can find. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.
.
.Now you need to remove the water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip down the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. Now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You’ll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They’re not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care.
.
.When you’ve removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the outer end of the red water sprayer in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. You can’t blow air through it, right? It’s clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You’ll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you’ve fixed it. Now you have to put it back together. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Push the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell.
.
.Now do the same for the other red water sprayer.
.
.I had a problem when I fixed this on mine this morning, because when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn’t reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn’t reach the end of the hose. So try to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, I fixed this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (the surface of which the water tank mounts on top of), and then pried it up. You can pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers to the hoses, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don’t break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base.
.
.There’s something else you may need to do that can help get the water flowing. This one’s easier. The Bissell uses pumps, which need to be primed. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine keeps water from flowing. To prime the pumps, separate the two water tank pieces. Fill the base as usual and mount it on the Bissell without the top water tank piece. Plug the Bissell in and **turn it on**. (The Bissell must be running to do this.) Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water release trigger at the top of the Bissell’s handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You’ll feel a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. Now that you’ve cleaned out your water sprayers and primed the Bissell’s internal pumps, I’m hoping water will GUSH through your Bissell once again.
.
.As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it’s VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Empty all the water. Thoroughly rinse out both water container pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and blow all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It’s a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and need more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn’t it??
.
.Good luck!

My power brushes on my bissel carpet cleaner stopped working. They do not rotate. This is the 2nd power cleaner I have bought and it has the same problem as the first one. What is the problem with the power brushes. After 3 uses they stop working. Bissel Proheat 2X Model #8920
ANSWER : The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. [email protected]
