There seems to be either
1) a clog in the solution dispensing system
2) a malfunction of the solution release system

Check the solution release system. There should be a cable from the release handle to the release valve. Sometimes this needs to be readjusted.
It could be the release valve but I doubt it.

If it's not in the release system then it's probably a clog in the hose from the solution tank to the final solution release.
Carefully (as not to poke a hole in the solution tubing) snake a wire or coat hanger through the hoses and check for obstructions in the solution tank where the solution exits to the hose. Also check where the hose meets the release valve.
Spraying high pressure water or air at these points with the valve open may blow out any obstructions.

Sometimes just filling the solution tank full with plain water and shaking hard while holding the release valve open will clear obstructions.

Hoping this is all it is!

May have a bad pump, belt or a clog. If Bissell, the heater inside the handle may be clogged. Running a mix of vinegar and water sometimes will clean out a clog.

Are your hoses getting pressure or are all of your hoses clean? Both of them may have a clog causing the pump not to be able to pump water through any of the hoses. Also make sure the pump is for the right model and that the pump was installed correctly so that it can pump water correctly.

    Check and see if the pump is running while the motor is running. Also try adding more water to it than usual and see if it make a difference and does anything.

Check to make sure there is no clog anywhere in the machine. There may a clog in the water hose or at the base of the machine.

I have a bissel pro heat 2x and it wont spray


I love these and have 2 of them! The warrantees are usually good and it is your pump if both the hand held and carpet positions won't spray water. Both the soap tank and water resevoir need to have at the very least water in both for the unit to work. Yes... You can use just hot water for light cleaning in both. The pump controls both the spraying water and suction. Last, if one or the other won't spray, the unit can have residue blockage. The passages are narrow, check to see if they are clean. Last test. Turn it on, release the handle. At the base of the neck there will be an oval shaped opening. With the handle on the floor as if filling the unit with water...put either your hand or a paper plate over the hole to see if there is suction. If the pump is good, you will feel a lot of suction against your hand or the flat surface of the plate.

I have a Bissell Proheat 2X. The water doesn't dispense at all. What can I do to fix this?


I have seen this many times on these models. I have had two of them do this to me.

First thing is make sure to clean the water bag out with hot soapy water. Remove the bottom cap of the bucket and clean it well. Many times dirt build up will collect and clog the unit. After the cap and bag are clean put the bucket back together. Fill the bag with cold water, hold it up in the sink or tub and press against the bottom part of the cap, there is a part that moves. If water comes out, the bag is cleaned.

next you will want to inspect the water intake section. Clean out this with a toothpick and cottonswab. Place the bucket back in and test it. If no water still flows then you need to take the bucket out and place the unit on its side. At the base of the unit behind the brush unit you will find the jets. Clean their holes and check the tubes. Make sure the tubes dont' feel like they are clogged. Place the unit upright and put the bucket in. Turn the unit on and tilt it backward, press the spray button while you knee down to see if water is spraying or dripping from the unit.

Many times the hoses of these will clog but this is NOT the only thing. Inside the unit there is a small drive belt that runs the pump. Your manual should show you where this part is located and how to check it, replace it if needed and what size is needed. I have had a belt snap that caused the water to stop pumping as well.

The unit sprays for the first few seconds after I turn the unit on and then stops spraying any water or solution. I turn it off, wait a few minutes and the same thing happens. What is going on and how...


This sounds as though the pump belt is slipping. This may be caused because the pump belt has stretched slightly or the pump is seized and will not turn. Remove the pump belt and turn the pump rotor with your fingers to see it turns freely. If it does then the pump should be OK but the belt may be stretched and will need replacing. If the unit does not spray after changing the belt then clean the spray nozzles at the front of the machine and make sure that water flows to the nozzles OK. You can check this by temporarily disconnecting the nozzles from the plastic pipes.

Main causes for no spray.

Bladder may be empty.
SmartMix Bottle may be empty.
The Filter may be clogged.
Tanks may not be seated properly.
Pump may have lost prime. Check all the fluid tubes / hoses for leaks or blockage (see below).
The Pump Belt may be broken.

2 front jets are blocked. This is a common problem. When the machine is standing for a while the detergent turns to a gel causing the blockage Lay the Bissell on its side then where the water comes out of the jets at the bottom of the machine unblock them using a pin to poke through the hole in the centre.

Try running hot water through the system with no detergent to empty out all the residual detergent. Keep running hot water through the system by pressing the button you press for it to spray the water do this for about 5 mins and keep swapping the water for hotter water as it starts to cool doing this 4 or 5 times might solve your problem if not get the tools out and start looking for the blockage. Do this once a month to ensure that the pipes and jets are kept clean and free of any detergent gel build up.

Bissell Proheat only sprays for a few seconds.


When was the last time you changed the flat belt? Even if it isn't broken it could be so stretched out that when the brush hits the floor it slows or stops the pump from spraying. If its a new belt then and your sure there arent any clog's that usually means the pump is bad. Also if youve ever used anything other than bissell shampoo in the machine it could have ruined the pump as well.

My bissel 7901 won't spray water out of the bottom or hose to clean the carpet. I did smell a burning smell and shut it off. Is the pump gone?


Depends, if the the smell was like rubber, then it may be the pump belt. If it is ok, then the pump could be bad, altho the pump wouldn't have had a burning smell. The main motor would if it was an electrical smell.

No spray


pump part number is 2107181, the diverter valve # 2136988. You can Bissell and they can tell you who may have parts near you, or you maybe able to order thru Bissell.com. Before you took it apart, were you getting water to spray out of the hose. If you were the the heater is plugged and won't allow water to spray out the bottom.

Water will not come out to do floor work


HI, I have a very similar Bissell. My problem was that after unscrewing the top plate and looking at the pipes the pipes feeding the front sprays were full of gunge blocking the sprayheads. I managed to flush it through by carefully removing the T connector that feeds the front 2 pipes, placing it back so it stuck out of one of the holes and replacing the water tank and turning on while holding it over a bucket. Black and white bits came out but it did flush through. I am thinking of doing a youtube video - let me know if this will help you!

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix know. Pump is bad.
