The Bissell ProHeat is a carpet cleaner that comes in several models to address specific carpet cleaning needs. Each model has a hose attachment to clean areas such as upholstery, stairs and curtains. The hose is turned on by selecting "tools" on the dial located on the base of the machine. The hose can be removed for general maintenance or if it needs to be replaced.
Turn off the machine and unplug it from the electrical outlet.
Unlatch the hose from the machine by turning the hose secure latch upward.
Unwrap the hose from the hose rack.
Grasp the hose at the base firmly and twist it back and forth while pulling it out of the unit. The hose is attached securely in the base of the unit to ensure proper suction. Removing it will require some effort. Twisting the hose while pulling it out will assist in making the removal easier.
