You will have to locate all the various screws that hold the cover on. Remove the cap over the spinner. Then lift the cover off. Watch closely so you can put it back together properly. It's not a simple job if you've never done it.

The heater is located in the handle. It can become clogged with soap or mineral deposits. It can be removed and cleaned by removing the screws holding the front and back of the handle together. Separate the handle parts to gain access to the heater. It can be removed by taking the clamps off the water inlet and outlet lines. Remove the electric wires from the heater. Remove the screws holding the top on the water heater (be careful not to lose little gaskets with each *****) clean inside of heater and reinstall all wires, hoses, screws exactly as they were before.

The User Guide gives you steps for reduced spray or no spray. But, I have seen some pinched hoses as the cause that can fixed by simply removing the hose completely and straightening it out. The Guide reminds you that the Bladder may be empty, the Heater tank may be empty, the tanks may not be seated completely, or my favorite the filter may be clogged. If you haven't been cleaning the filter after each use this may be a start. The first is where is it? There are actually two filters: One is located on the tank cap. It looks like a screen. Clean any particles that may have collected on it. The second is under the Flow Indicator: Turn the FLow Indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it, remove the rotor, then remove the filter. Clean the filter and replace items in reverse order. If after that you still have a problem you can contact Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7391.

Check your User Guide. For a ProHeat it will page 4 or on the assembly directions page 6. The hose wraps around the big loops close to the handle and the electric wire wraps around the loops with the catch that turns. Hope that helps.

I have an 8920 ProHeat 2x as well with the same issue - no spray at the rollers. Seeing that the hand tool worked I checked the finger switch for continuity and it was good. Turns out the red spray heads that clip into the unit just under the water tanks were the culprit. I popped those off and ran a paper-clip through them from the front. I must have contaminated the fresh water tank while emptying the grey tank. Works better than ever now, just thought I'd share what my issue turned out to be.

There are 2 screws in the front corners of the nozzle. Take those out and pull upward. There are 2 tabs on the back of the clear nozzle cover over the inlet that will snap out when you lift the front. Be very careful when replacing the screws. They are prone to strip the plastic if you over tighten them. Also make sure the seal is clean and back inplace before putting it back together.

I assume you've changed the flat belt and it's working o.k. So, the next thing to check is the bucket seat. When the bucket is set down into the machine, the bucket valve is opened by the center pin on the receiver in the floor of the machine. You should put clean water into the bucket and install it. Wait a couple of seconds and remove it. Inspect the receiver and see if there is any water in it. If not, check the valve in the bucket and make sure that the rubber seal is in place. Sometimes they come off and stay stuck in the receiver. This will not allow the valve to open. If the seal is stuck in the receiver, remove it and re-install it on the bucket valve and test again.
By the way, if there is no shampoo in the shampoo tank, and the mixture dial is set anywhere but off, the machine will not spray. The pump will suck air through the empty tank and will not pick up water from the main tank.
If there is water in the receiver after you remove the bucket, then the problem is likely in the heater. The heater is located in the center of the handle and you must open the handle by removing the hose storage rack and then the top of the handle. There are two screws behind the hose holder that are at the back/bottom of the handle and are recessed into the handle. Once the handle is open, the heater is obvious. You will find two clear hoses attached and they often become plugged at the connections, just inside the heater. You can clear this with a 1/8" drill bit. Remove the hoses and take the bit in you hand and gently insert and rotate. Once cleared, replace the hoses and reassemble. I hope this helps. Be careful. These machines are a maze of hoses and valves and can be difficult to reassemble. Be very observant whenever taking one apart.
One more thing. I have seen instances where the screws that hold down the hood in the area of the tank have broken through the plastic and will lift enough that the tank will not sit down far enough to allow the valve to open. Check here, too.
I hope this helps.

Belt dosent have to be broke it may be stretched. It needs around 30lbs of pressure to roll the brush on carpet.
If it dose not roll off carpet at all the brush bearing are locked up. You may be able to remove the roller and check theme. Most likely you wil need a new roller brush.

It is not easy. You will need to remove the whole top housing first. Then have the new pump so you can hook the hoses back up like they came off. Then reassemble being careful and paying very close attention to where each and every hose was laying when you took it apart. Put them all back exactly so they don't get pinched. If you are not of average or higher mechanical ability DO NOT attempt this. A reputable vac shop will install one including parts for between $40-50
