Tracey Ellis: I need to take the housing off. My dog chewed through the electrical cord
and I need to replace. I've removed all visible screws. Do I need to remove
the wheels also? If so, do the wheels have caps over the screws? I'm a
little scared to remove these in case they are more than caps.
G Ke: This was good advice and I get the concept but cannot see what you are
doing too well. Thank you for trying. Wish you had someone videoing who
could take close ups.
Paul Warren: Thanks for the video this did help--except I used air pressure. My 1698
Bissill Proheat (over 14 years old) has not had any problems until a month
ago. I was losing spray pressure. I took it all apart cleaned out every
part while it was apart. The heater was not too bad and did not show any
clogs as well as tubes did not show any clogs. I disconnected the pump
hose accessable from the belt door and then put air pressure through it.
At first nothing but could see air pushing through the lines. After a
couple air pressure blows the clog blew out the top of the rotating check
port. Plug most have been behind inside of tubing at wheels out of sight
as was only place that did not get checked earlier.
grammanow: there are vents underbed of machine, can I hose/clean/ spray over to clean
those areas, I borrowed the machine, and they gave it back extremely dirty
and caked over with gunk!
azclarkdc: I just took my Bissell ProHeat Cleaner apart and I took the heater out,
took it apart and cleaned it out, but I think the procedure described here
would have worked as well. I was getting real minimal flow before cleaning
the heater out. It works great now. This should be a routine maintenance
procedure to keep the machine working efficiently.
Dawn Brotzman: What kind of nozzle is that?
Dawn Brotzman: Definitely the wrong nozzle ....... Need to know what nozzle
Andrew Secules: Thank you! I was 1 minute from throwing my cleaner in the trash. I took it
apart and cleaned out the heater, unclogged the spray nozzles, and still
nothing. But I did what you said and there you have it, it works!
Josh More: The nozzel that I used is from the hardware store. I don't remember the
name of it. It has a sharp stream that is adjustable .
Candace Welsh-Payne: Thank you so much..very thoughtful of you to post this..
Philip G: need to see it closer you are so far a way from it
Gwen Sloan: I thank you for the help Josh
benny11704: Thanks for the help, worked like a charm!
Gwen Sloan: I notice there are two tubes ...... One is connected to a white plastic
pole and thee other seems to be postioned pointing towards the front of the
cleaner.....whuch tube am I flushing? and where did you get the nozzle for
the water hose
ag763s: This worked awesome !!!By the way you can use a standard garden hose
sprayer that has a jet setting on low pressure.Most hose sprayers have
multiple sprayer settings and I used the JET setting with low flow and it
worked perfectly.I could actually hear the blockage unclogging.I also
cleaned the heater coils but for some reason that trick did not work even
though they were filthy.But THIS worked amazing.Thanks again.
Malcolm Lyttle: ta da!!,,thanks a lot. Saved me having to buy a new one.
Jean122: WOW my husband has been working on this all day today,tore the thing all
apart. We have hardly used this machine maybe three times so far. Sure glad
I saw this. Thanks for making our day. We will try this next time for sure.
Dawn Brotzman: Okay I found a Gilmour Adjustable Cone Sharp Stream nozzle I'm gonna buy
and test this out
Sillyomelinda1: IT WORKED! Thank you so very much!!!!
33thewitt: I took that little hose off by the belt and inserted canned air into it.
All of a sudden clog blew through and water shot out of that filter spinny
thing and hit the ceiling of our downstairs. It works perfectly now. One
can do this inside with canned air in about 5 minutes.
Derf Sevorg: Thanks for showing this. It worked great. However, I used my air compressor
instead of water to clean out the tube.
Theultimatebohab420: you or maybe i should do one for the bissell carpet steamer/shampooer mines
plugged and in in the process of fixin it.
triceMMJr: I want to try this! But what's the name of the nozzle on the end of the
hose you are using?
Roy R: Thanks for sharing this video.I'm having problems with my Bissell Proheat
not spraying any fluid as well and will try this method..Thanks again.
Dianna Dallinger: Thank you so much! It worked beautifully!
AbuBishir: I'm gonna try this. I heard you should run a half a cup of vinegar through
a tank of water to help keep the jets from getting clogged.
