The most likely problem is the heater is clogged with soap residue. The water going to the upholstery tool does not go through the heater. The heater needs to be removed and cleaned.

and insert. Always use genuine BISSELL formulas

to maximize cleaning and for the safety of your

machine. Fill formula up to the line and replace the

cap and insert. Place formula tank into the slot in the

back of the machine for a snug fit.

If using the BISSELL 3X Concentrated Fiber Cleansing

Formula: Add 3 capfuls of 3X Concentrated Fiber

Cleansing formula to the formula tank, and then fill

with warm water to the line.

Note: If bottle leaks, check for proper positioning

of red gromment and straw insert.

Check the brushes on the motor they would be under 2 plastic caps one for each brush. Also the motor might have a reset look for a button which is sticking out either on the side of the motor or top of the motor and push it in.
