My Karcher Press & Ex 800 extraction carpet cleaner will not spray. Vacuum motor works fine but sprayer is dead. I checked the switch with a continuity tester and it is fine. Is there a fuse that needs to be replaced. Help! My carpeting is nasty. Gonna pull it up and replace with hardwood floors, so if you can help me, I'll be selling this thing cheap soon!

You may want to check for a pinched hose. Unwind the hose completely and lay it out and try your sprayer again. If that doesn't work than try reseating the tank (turn the unit off, remove the tank and then replace it, wait 1 minute and turn the unit back on.) AND, if you haven't been cleaning the filters now would be a good time to do that. In the tank there is a lint filter on the lid and there is another filter under the flow indicator (turn flow indicator cap counter-clock wise, remove rotor, remove filter. clean filter and replace everything in reverse manner. Hope that helps. If not Bissell Consumer Care number is 1-800-237-7691.
Turn off and unplug unit. Remove both tanks. Fill Solution tank and install it. Fill Heat Tank and install it. Plug unit in and turn on, wait one minute and engage sprayer till spraying. Stop sprayer. Consumer Care # 1-800-237-7691 for further assistance.
Resolve carpet cleaner is a cleaner specifically designed to work on carpets. Resolve comes as a steam concentrate, a powder, a foam spray, or liquid spray. Before using the carpet cleaner you should vacuum the carpet. Resolve carpet cleaner works by being applied to the carpet then worked in with a soft bristled brush. Depending on the cleaner, it will be sprinkled or sprayed onto the carpet. Use the brush to work the cleaner down into carpet fibers. There is a waiting period for the cleaner to work, then you vacuum the cleaner out of the carpet.
That vacuum is fine on liquid extraction but often gets clogged by debris when it hits a solid. It would be better to do the clean with the steamvac then follow it with a wet/dry shop vac to be sure you got all the water. I say this because the vac built into that hoover is way too easy to clog.
