If I may! In most cases the heater is clogged. It might be clogged with soap that has harden over time. You need to take the handle apart. You will see a metal box(thats the heater) besides the wires there are two tubes connected to the heater. remove the tubes but label or watch which tube goes where. now turn the heater upside down. there are 6 screws on the side and 1 in the middle. remove them carefully. the 6 on the side have a small gaskets under them..you don't want to lose them. the 1 in the middle has no gasket, now the bottom plate of the heater can be taken off (there is a gasket with that plate ...be careful . you will now see the long channels inside the heater and need to clean it. the holes where the tubes where connected have to be clean also but carefully. the metal is soft.so it bends. now put it all back. hope this helps. if you want to keep this from happening.the best way is to run clear water after you are done.this will remove any soap in the machine which will harden after the machine drys out. hope I helped .
and to mr. reddevil6 I am learning lots from you. Thanks

I'm having the same issue and it was the pump. The metal drive gear sheared off of the plastic pump shaft. I JB Welded it back together, now I just need a schematic to reassemble the cleaner.

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water
and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the
As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.
Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).
There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.
Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.
In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!! g

When I desided to purchase a Bissell Deep Cleaner I read up on everything on the Bissell, even the problems people where haveing with them. I bought the Pro heat select 2X deep cleaner and I take very good care of it, cleaning everything through with warm-hot water 3-4 times over to get all of the cleaning solution out of all of the lines as well as the tools, the solution "will" biuld up in the lines! Seeing how clean my carpets maybe every 3-6 months, i take this time to clean because the machine is not cheap! I also have to take off the brush heads and clean the and the area as well because i have pets and i get alot of hair build up!
I just set up my Bissell to use, and no spray! for me in was the spray heads under the water contianer, lift off the contianer like you need to dump out the old water and add fresh hot water, as you lift you will see the two (mine are red) red colored spray heads that are "snapped" into place on either side, they have little clips over the heads that can be "pressed together" so you can release the spray head, now this will not be easy because the heads are in there good but they will come out and a little tuff putting back in! But that was my problem, there was calcium a such, build-up in the spray head and more just sitting in the line. I cleaned the spray head with a "skewer", yes a BBQ "bamboo" meat skewer was the perfect size for the hole in the spray head. Then i got a container an took the open ends of the spray line and directed them, one by one into the container and I turned on the machine and pressed the spray button and bits and pieces came flying out! problem solved! I hope I have helps some of you!
I know it's a pain, but you have to clean out the machine very well after your done!
Sorry, but i'm not going to proof read! Lol, take care!
