The Bissell ProHeat 2X is a carpet cleaner with 10 rows of cleaning brushes, surround suction, built-in heater for water and cleaning solution, 27-foot-long cord, a 12-amp motor and an overall weight of 11.8kg. While the carpet cleaner should work well under most circumstances, occasional repairs or servicing may be necessary to clean or maintain the unit. It may be necessary to take the ProHeat 2X apart, which should only be attempted by an adult when the cleaner is unplugged and turned off.
