WARNING: Improper connection
of the equipment-grounding conductor can
result in a risk of electrical shock. Check
with a qualified electrician or service
person if you aren’t sure if the outlet is
properly grounded. DO NOT MODIFY THE
PLUG. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician. This appliance is designed for
use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has
a grounding attachment plug that looks
like the plug in the drawing above. Make
certain that the appliance is connected to
an outlet having the same configuration as

Special Features of your BISSELL ProHeat Self Propelled
Self Propelled Powerdrive
The ProHeat Self Propelled home cleaning system is the first and
only deep cleaner with a powerdrive. The Self Propelled feature
allows you to clean forward and backward using a minimum
amount of effort while maximizing cleaning.
Simply turn the Powerdrive Knob to the “ON” position.

2.
Push the handle slightly forward to engage the
powerdrive in the forward motion and pull slightly back for
ease of motion on the backward pass.

delicate furniture.
The BISSELL SmartClean® System
The ProHeat is a home cleaning system that heats hot tap water and
automatically mixes it with Fiber Cleansing Formula. The solution is
heated as it is applied to the carpet with Fiber Cleansing Formula.
The combination of heated cleaning solution, powered brushes and
suction provide a safe and thorough method of cleaning.
SmartTemp®
Temperature control automatically heats the cleaning solution
as it is being applied to the carpet * to safely optimize
cleaning effectiveness.
The Power Switch on the handle controls power to the
machine; both switches must be ON ( I ) for SmartTemp
to work.

The SmartTemp Switch is found on the handle, near the
Power Switch. You may choose not to use the SmartTemp
feature if you are cleaning delicate wool or oriental rugs.
*SmartTemp heats the cleaning solution for carpet
and bare floor application only. It does not heat
solution sprayed through the accessory tools.
The SmartTemp Ready Light indicates when the heater is
ON ( I ). It is found on the front of the handle where it is
easy to see while you clean.
Note: Allow 1 minute for the built-in heater to
warm-up before cleaning. The ProHeat will be fully
warmed and will provide optimal performance after
a minute of continuous heated cleaning.
SmartTemp increases the water temperature approximately
25° and will not allow it to exceed 180.°

Only” position until the condition stops.
Note: Both the SmartMix Tank and the clean
water tank must have liquid in them for
the machine to spray. If one tank is empty,
the machine will temporarily lose its
prime and not apply either cleaning
solution or water only.
DirtLifter® PowerBrush
The powered brush roll at the floor nozzle is designed to
enhance cleaning performance. The bristle pattern lifts out the
deep down dirt while gently grooming carpet fibers. The floating
suspension self-adjusts to all carpet heights and protects
your carpet if you leave the power switch ON ( I ). When the
machine handle is in the fully upright position, Carpet Saver™
automatically raises the brush off the carpet.

Stain Removal
Do Not Delay! Failure to attend to an accident soon after it occurs
may cause it to set and become permanent.
Before treating any stain, follow these pre-treatment steps:
Blot up liquids with an absorbent cloth or paper towels.
White materials are recommended because certain dyes
may bleed and make the stain worse.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Gently scrape up semi-solids with a spoon or spatula.
Do not use a knife or other utensil with sharp edges
because it could damage the carpet or upholstery.
If the area has dried, remove the remaining semi-solids
and residue with a sweeper or vacuum.
Be sure to pre-test any spot removal solutions or chemicals
on an inconspicuous area first. This is extremely important;
some dyes and materials could be damaged or discolored
by a cleaning solution. If such a change should occur, try a
different solution or call a professional. If cleaning on Berber
Carpet gently run your machine over a hidden area. If no
fuzzing occurs, continue cleaning in soiled area.
Use one of the following methods to Preclean the stain:
Using Bissell Tough Stain PreCleaner, generously
spray evenly over soiled area, do not overwet carpet.
Wait 3 – 5 minutes. Gently work the solution by blotting
area with a clean, damp, color safe cloth.
5.
or
Use your BISSELL deep cleaner as a Precleaner. With
one of the tools attached to hose, set the Ready Tools
Dial to Pretreat and the SmartMix Dial to the High Traffic
setting. Spray the area with solution and allow the Deep
Cleaning formula to penetrate for 3-5 minutes.
6.
Once the Precleaning is complete, use the attached tool
to gently scrub the stain with back and forth strokes.
7.
Allow to dry. Some difficult stains may require a second
treatment.

Scotchgard™ protector Applicator (Optional)
The Scotchgard protector applicator (with formula included) can be used to
help retain the carpet cleanliness you achieve with your ProHeat machine.
For best results the post cleaning treatment should be applied while the
carpet is still wet or damp. It is recommended that the Scotchgard protector
is applied every 12 months in all carpeted areas, and after every deep
cleaning for high traffic areas such as entryways and stairs.
Immediately after cleaning and rinsing your carpets, empty the
Tank-in-Tank and refill the Bladder with clean hot tap water.
(See pages 7 & 8 for instructions.)

Set the ReadyTools Dial to Tools/Pretreat.
Flush water through the hose to eliminate cleaning solution
from the tube by spraying water through the hose without
attachments into a sink for 15-30 seconds.
Attach cartridge to the applicator tool, following instructions
on cartridge.
Turn the SmartMix Dial to the Water Rinse/Carpet Protectant Setting.
Place the Scotchgard protector applicator onto the end of the Flex
Hose. The water from the Tank-in-Tank will automatically mix with
the concentrated protectant formula contained in the cartridge.
Before applying Scotchgard protector, test a small, hidden area
for colorfastness. Examine area when dry. If color is affected,
do not use. For upholstery, look for manufacturer’s cleanability
code tag. Use on fabrics coded “W” or “WS”. If coded “S” or
“X” do not use. Not recommended for use on velvet, silk vinyl,
leather or 100% cotton upholstery.
If clogged, soak
applicator tool
in hot tap water
before using.
Plan your route to leave an exit path. It is best to begin
protecting in the corner farthest from your exit.
9.
Apply Scotchgard protector in a slow sweeping motion with a
slight overlap of the treated area. For best coverage, follow the
guide on the cartridge.
10.
One 8 oz. cartridge protects 200 square feet (18.6 square
meters). This is equal to two average size rooms (each at 10 x
10 feet or 3 x 3 meters. Periodically check the product level in
the bottle to ensure best coverage.
11.
Be careful not to spray the protector onto furniture or fabric
that has not been tested for colorfastness. If this does occur,
wipe off the protector.
12.
Remove bottle from applicator tool. If concentrate is left, put
the cap on and store at room temperature for later use.
13.
With applicator tool still on the end of Flex Hose, spray clean
hot water into sink to avoid any future clogging.
14.
Tip:
Store tool on the back of unit in the caddy.
