Bissell big green clean machine trigger problems

I have a very old Bissell Big Green clean machine, green canister with a long handle deal. My "grip/trigger unit" the little lever you pull up with you finger is broken or something it doesn't let the liquid flow anymore. Its like loose and not usable. Is there a picture or something of how it looks inside and how it is supposed to hook up inside with the screws out of the handle. The manual doesn't show how it looks inside the handle it self, Maybe something is broke off or something. thx k Mclaren email kittaroo@clearwire.net

I had the same issue after using it daily for over a year. I checked everything and found no clog. I brought it to a vacuum cleaner repair center and they found a clog in the motor. It cost me $25 and was well worth it. I love this vacuum

Problem could be a stopped up heater unit which is located in the handle. The two clear hoses going up the inside of the left wheel go to the heater. There is also an in-line water switch located directly above the heater. The trigger for water release is in the top part of the handle. back to the heater... mine was corroded inside. Removed 5 screws holding heater cover. clean water trough and reassemble. If you need new washers go to Ace hardware. The smallest size metric rubber washers seem to work fine. take old rubber washers(red?) with you for comparison.

You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck

SOURCE: I have a Bissell Powersteamer & it won't throw out the water.

You can test the trigger to see if that is the problem. Take the two handle bolts out, gently pull back on the tool rack and slide the handle up off the unit. If you look down inside of the unit where the handle was you can see the valve that the handle used to actuate. You can turn on the unit and manually activate the valve with a long screwdriver. If it starts working then you know it was the upper handle.

Does it spray out the tools? If it does then you have a clogged heater. It is located in the lower handle and can be taken apart and cleaned out.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Bissell Big Green Machine Model 1672 will not pump cleaning liquid

have a Bissell Big Green 1672, the older canister model. Went crazy trying to figure out how to get to the pump. Finally figured it out. The top green "shell" covers the motor & pump and is separate from the "grey" plastic housing. Using a screw driver, insert it between the small gap between the top "shell" and the housing. If you look at it with it laying down on the top, you will see the small 1/4" gap. Gently pry in between the two and work your way around. It will start to lift up and then you can easily work your way around and it will pop off exposing the motor and pump. Note that the wires to the on/off & pump switches will sill be attached to the top shell. If you take them off note where they came from and make sure they are all on when you put the top back on. I have had my Green Machine for years, what a work horse! To bad they don't make them anymore, the new ones that replaced them just don't have the same durability and power as the older Green Machines.

My Bissell Big Green barely sprays any water.


Check you User Guide and see where the filters are. They usually have have a filter under the flow indicator. Turn the Flow Indicator cap counter-clockwise to remove it. Lift out the rotor and the filter is under it. Remove it and clean. Reinstall in reverse order. I don't know anything about the specific machine you have but I know they have a flow indicator from other comments I've read so it's worth the try.. Hope that Helps.

How to install a new water pump on a big Green machine?


I have replaced this pump before, and had the pump "seize" again. I hooked the output of the bissel to a siphon pump to pull a vacuum while i had the input hose (with the little filter) submerged in a bucket of water. After i got the pump started, I submerged both the inlet and outlet hoses (after the trigger handle) into a bucket of warm water and turned the spray switch on to circulate clear water through the whole deal
