Rated 5 out of 5 by kwchef3 The PRO Heat Bissell is the BEST
I used this machine for the first time when I was moving, I borrowed it from my Niece figuring it would do a passable job on the carpets to brighten up the place, and save $$$ on a professional company. Well let me tell you it was FANTASTIC!! Now my Niece being a lot younger and not mechanically inclined, had used this machine for 2 yrs...she has a dog, so lots of hair in the rollers, but it still worked fine for me but not top notch. I took the time to clean ALL PARTS and reassemble...WOW! I reminded my Niece that this is a CARPET/FLOOR cleaner.....NOT A Vacuum. Most of the comments on this site deal with plugged nozzles,no suction, and on and on. Basic's: Vacuum your carpet FIRST, then mix your cleaning product PER THE INSTRUCTIONS ...more is NOT BETTER! Pre-treat hard soiled area's. empty tank often and flush out then continue. There is no reason for you Folks saying it clogs or has no suction or does not clean...all of these problems are " OPERATOR ERROR" I am ordering my own unit this evening as I am moving again, but also have 1 rental unit to clean sometimes. The investment in this machine is such "a no brainier" your silly if you don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by junebug RIP, ProHeat 2X (12 years old)
I am very saddened to have to say goodbye to our Bissell ProHeat 2x, Model 9200. We have had it for 12 years. We used it heavily and often. It was so reliable! The only problem that I had was a suction problem in our new home. I realized that it must have gotten damaged in the move, and, sure enough, the plastic part for suction had snapped and broke, so it had hardly any suction. I used gorilla glue on it and original suction returned. I am getting ready to order my second one! I sure hope the quality is still consistant. I think that checking the front end for damage should be noted for anyone that has suction problems.

This Bissell ProHeat 2X that we got works great when it works, but it evidently has a complex water distribution system that clogs much too easily. I clean the machine religiously after use, but the next time I go to use it, it fails to distribute the water and Bissell Cleaning solution to the carpet. This time I even had to give up after 1 1/2 days of trying to fix it. I felt like taking a sledge hammer to it. I took it to our local shop for repair. I am fed up with this product. I understand Hoover makes a much better machine.

I too am having problems with the Bissell 2x. It worked well the first 3 times we used it but now will not suck up the water. My husband and I have both tried to figure out what is wrong with no luck. We have consulted the manuel and done what is suggested but at this point we have spent way too much time messing with it and will get a new steamer instead. Disappointing.
