Bissell Proheat 2X Carpet Cleaner Instructions

The Bissell Proheat 2X Carpet Cleaner is a deep cleaning machine. Boasting 10 rows of cleaning brushes, even ground-in dirt and grime will be lifted from your carpets. This machine also features a built-in water heater, hot for the highest level of cleaning. Use the Bissell Proheat 2X the right way, to ensure it operates to its fullest potential.


Vacuum the carpet thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner, to remove surface dirt and debris. Pre-treat any stains or high-traffic areas with a Bissell Pretreatment Spray

Lift up the carrying handle on the 2-in-1 water tank, to remove it from the base. Take it to the sink, then lift up on the tank latch on the backside of the tank. Lift-up on the handle to detach the top of the tank from the bottom.

Fill the plastic bladder on the bottom of the tank with hot water. Sit the tank on a flat surface, then put the top part of the tank back in place. Make sure the lip of the top tank hooks into the groove on the bottom tank. Secure the latch, to reattach the 2-in-1 water tank.

Lift-up on the formula tank located at the back of the carpet cleaning machine. Unscrew the cap, then fill the tank to the water line with tap water. Fill the tank with Bissell 2X concentrated formula to the formula line. Put the lid on the tank, then secure the tank back into position.

Adjust the Custom Clean Dial on the front of the machine to the appropriate setting. Choose from water rinse, light clean, normal clean or heavy traffic. Turn the Ready Tools Dial to "Floor Cleaning."

Plug in the machine and turn on the power switch located on the front of the machine. Switch the heater – located right next to the power switch -- to the "ON" position. Let the machine sit for one minute to warm up, before cleaning the carpet.

Holding down the trigger on the handle, make a slow, forward wet pass, then another slow, wet pass backward over the same spot. Let go of the trigger and make another slow pass forward, then a slow pass backward over the same spot to suck up the dirty water. Continue making passes over the same area with the trigger released, until you don't see any more water being extracted from the carpet.

Discard the water from the dirty water tank, as it becomes full and refill the clean water tank, as well as the formula tank, when it's empty.
