Red spinner wont spin. ( Bissell carpet cleaner )

The red spinner that tells me my machine is working properly, is not spinning even when the bucket is full of clean water and the solution container is full. I took the spinner out and cleaned it but still won't work. I don't think my machine works properly because of it

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

found it from Tara put online in nov 2008 Thanks this is it

Had the same problem... although I don't have particularly hard water, the heater block corroded just enough to stop most of the flow after about 4 years. Disassemble the handle to get at the heater block (3 pairs of screws/bolts), remove the tubes with needle nose pliers, use a paper clip to knock out the corrosion on the front tube on the heater block, flush with a syringe to get rid of any other bits of corrosion (some extra plastic tubing connected to the back tube of the heater block helps here, and catch the water from the front tube to prevent water in the electronics...), reassemble (avoid disconnecting any wires...) and try it out. Worked for me! I REALLY have to thank the person who suggested this fix! THANKS!!!

I used regular pliers , phillips screwdriver , the pointed end of a compass and a turkey baster full of water to blast it out . You have to improvise . Take your time watch the little rubbers on the heater make sure its not hot . It was just the inlet gets pluged up in the heater . You have to take off the tools then its the bottom set of plastic not the handle . You can test by pushing the plunger at the top . You must take the handle off . Loosen the pieces it just came off for me then snaps back on . This is all it was for me , very simple . I am disabled and did it on a extra old carpet a little at a time over a few hours . For someone healthy its a hour job tops or less . Just be patient . God helps those who help themeslves and asks for patience .

SOURCE: bissell carpet cleaner brushes won't turn

Make sure you have released the handle, as if you wanted to push the machine forward. If the handle is locked upright, the brushes do not spin.

If they still don't spin, you may have a broken belt. Look carefully at the base, on each side. As I face the front of mine, on the right side of the machine, a small belt goes around one brush and a small cog wheel. On the left side, a larger belt goes around both brushes. If either belt is broken, the brushes will not spin. This can happen if you let gunk build up inside the clear plastic side pieces or around or above the brushes. It's very important to constantly be cleaning your Bissell. The belts can be ordered online and replaced. See your owner's manual.

SOURCE: bissell proheat 7 will not spray water or cleaner

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the main machine.

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

SOURCE: Bissell carpet cleaner not sucking up.

I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Check the dirty tank for proper assembly and how full it is. There is a red float ball in there that might be stuck closed.

The unit does not put any watter on the carpet and when I push the triger the red spinner does not move. The tank is full of hot watter


Hello,

This sounds like your pump brush belt is broken in your Bissell. The belt controls the pump in the machine, as well as the brushes. This would be explain why the solution is not spraying, as well as why the red spinner on the top of the machine is also not spinning.

Here's an extremely helpful video that you can watch on how to replace the belt on your Bissell ProHeat Carpet Cleaner.

If you open up the door and find that your belt is not broken, please just reply using the Clarification Request form here on the Fixya website, and I'll be more then happy to do some advanced diagnosing with you to figure out what the problem is.

The water does not shoot out of my bissell proheat shampooer. The red spinner has stopped spinning.


I'm not sure I have the same kind of machine as you because I don't think I have a red spinner. However, I did have the problem of water not shooting out (although the solution was being used up, just not the water). The problem turned out to be the plug underneath the main tank. To find out if this is your problem, lift out the main tank and take it to the sink. Feel underneath for the plug. Push inside of it. Water should squirt out (assuming there is water in your tank). If it doesn't, turn the tank over, unscrew the plug, and push the thing inside until you get it to spring up and down. If it won't do that, you might need a new one. If it springs, screw it back and try your machine again. Mine worked good as new after I did this. Good luck!

Water and clearen not coming out.


If the modle is an old modle the heater could be blocked,or if it a new modle try taking of the of the handle and ad a small shim to the bottom of the handle plunger to make it a little bit longer ,the plunger might not be reaching the valve,
also unscrew the clear cap which which is on top of the red spinner to see if the white filter under the spinner is clean and free from debris.
when you put the cap back on make sure its not to thigt and the spinner move freely, if the suction is poor make sure the red lint filter in the clean water tank is clean
