PROHEAT 2X« LIFT-OFF« 1565 Series question

Anyone familiar with this Bissel carpet cleaner? This waste canister seems to be split in half there previously joined with like rubber cement or silicone. What would be the purpose of making it in two parts? Do just clean it up and use something suitable for plastic? Something with flex?

I didn't find anything in the manual about it.

All the parts lists show it as one piece.
Typically a part like that is cast in two pieces and then electronically welded together.
I would use a plastic glue like Duco Cement.
Be sure to clean the joint well. I'd use lighter fluid to clean.
I don't think silicone will hold well there.

Thanks.

What about this stuff before I go buy more stuff. Pretty strong and is a little flexible. I also have the more solid epoxy, gray stuff.

It may have been a defective factory weld and someone used silicone to repair it.

Ah. So when you say weld, you talking about fire and like plastic? I'm only familiar with metal welding and plastic repair. You saying welding is done with plastic in production somehow?

I guess I don't see why not. Just a other softer material that can melt and reform just like metal right?
