You can disassemble the unit and check to see if the pump motor has seized.

the motor has a black, red and green wire attached, is encased in a plastic housing, and is right next to the vacuum assembly. Don't cut the line attached to the plastic housing, you don't need to and it can be a pain to reattach later. just slide the whole white housing up towards the black vacuum assembly, and undo the wire leads attached to the motor, they just pull off (make sure it's not plugged in) making sure to note which wire attaches to which lead... i marked each lead with a colored marker to be sure.

Use a pair of pliers to turn the drive shaft if it has seized, and be sure not to lose the small rubber o-ring that sits around the shaft. Lubricate at the base where the drive shaft meets the motor with just a drop of 3-in-1 electric motor oil and then reassemble the housing, attach the leads, seat the motor back into the seating (make sure the bottom nozzle goes into the green water feed coupler!) and reassemble the case.

worked well for me, if it still doesn't work you could buy a new pump and install it. they go for around $10 on ebay and amazon.com

I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good

When I reassembled mine, there was 3 wires connecting to the motor, Green, black and red. The Green one was connected to the lead on the side of the motor, the black one on the lead directly above the green one, on the same side. The red one was on the lead that was the only lead on that side of the motor. Hope that helps.

Hello,

Here's some trouble shooting tips that will help you figure out what's wrong with your Bissell Little Green Machine, and why the water won't spray out. You didn't mention how old the machine was, but if the machine is brand new, and you've never used this before, then you'll need to prime the machine for the first time.

To prime the Little Green Machine, remove the hose after filling the clean water tank, and press and hold the trigger on the hose for approximately 45 seconds. This will prime the pump, and get the water flowing.

If the machine is older, and you've already been using it, here's some other troubleshooting tips that you can do to try and fix the machine:

9c4a1a7.jpg

Step 1. Fill the clean water solution tank with water, and remove it from the machine. With the tank removed, press the piston at the end of the tank that fits into the machine. The piston is the spring loaded part in the top of the water tank that is pressed upwards when the trigger is squeezed, which in turn releases water into the machine. Press the piston inwards with your finger and see if water comes out.

Step 2. If water is released from the tank when you push the piston inwards, then your piston and cap assembly are fine. Next unscrew the cap to the clean water tank and make sure that the o-ring is present. This is the rubber ring that rests in between the cap and the tank.

Step 3. If your o-ring is not there, you'll need to purchase a new a new o-ring and replace it. If the o-ring is present, screw the cap back onto the tank. Inspect the receiver to make sure there is no debris blocking it. The receiver is the part on the machine that the tank sits on top of. If you see debris here, remove any debris that could be obstructing the tanks piston.

Step 4. After checking these three things, refill the tank with water, reinsert back into the machine and test to see if the water now comes out. If the water does not come out, move on to step 5.

Step 5. Unscrew the two screws on the handle of the hose, and remove the cover that the two screws secure.

Step 6. After removing the hose cover, inspect the hose that connects to the trigger assembly for blockages:

Step 7. If blockages are found, remove the tube from the trigger, and blow through the hose to remove any blockages, and reinstall the tube back onto the trigger.

Step 8. Reinstall the trigger assembly so that the metal spring's curved side is facing down so that it touches the trigger valve:

Step 8. After reassembling the hose, turn the machine on again and try spraying the hose again.

If none of these solutions fixed your machine, this most likely indicates that you need to replace your pump. The pump is the internal part that takes the water from the tank, through the hose, and finally sprays it out. The pump replacement is a moderately difficult repair, but if you'd like me to walk you through it, I'd be more then happy to do so.

Please feel free to ask any follow up questions, or let me know if you'd like for me to show you how to replace the pump. I'm always more then happy to answer any question that you may have.

I got my Little Green ProHeat when the product was first unveiled several years ago. Shortly thereafter, the nozzle itself developed a clog in the spray jet. Remove the nozzle from the end of the hose, and with the machine running pull the trigger. If a great amount of solution comes out of the supply hole, then your nozzle is clogged. You can try clearing it with a very thin pin and then rinsing it out.

In about 6 months, my pump would no longer spray solution at all but I could hear the tiny pump still running inside the machine when I would pull the trigger. Remove the tanks, unplug the unit, and look carefully and you will see the few screws holding the unit together. Pull it apart carefully and don't use much force as some of it snaps together and you don't want to break those tabs. Once open, you can find the solution pump, a little fella. The drive shaft on the motor that spins the pump had rusted away completely! Design flaw. In lieu of getting it repaired, I simply started using a spray bottle for my solution application. Several years later and I'm ready to take the time to replace the pump - a very simple process. From the research I've done, the part number for the solution pump is:
Manufacturer's Part Number: 6035029
If you google search "Bissell 6035029 VacPartsWarehouse" without the quotes, you should find your part there for around $9.

Try this direct link to VacPartsWarehouse's website:
VacPartsWarehouse Bissell 1425-2 Little Green ProHeat
Click item #9. It's very simple to install. If you can wield a philips screwdriver, and pay attention to how you've disassembled the unit and then just reverse the steps, you can fix this yourself on the cheap.

Good luck! :)
Dan
