SOURCE: bissell carpet cleaner won't spray water or cleaner

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

SOURCE: 9200 Bissell carpet cleaner, water will NOT dispense

My Bissell also STOPPED SPRAYING WATER.

I've owned a Bissell 9200 for a few months. I've used it twice, the last time most likely being around August. I attempted to use it this past weekend and it wouldn't spray. I searched all the help sites I could find and thought the solution was a clog in the heater, which many said was located in the arm. After I took the arm apart, to my surprise, THE HEATER IS NOT LOCATED IN THE ARM OF THE 9200 MODEL.

It's still under warranty, however am not located near a service center so I took it upon myself to try to fix it.

I'm just a single female who ends up trying to fix a lot of stuff herself so, I don't speak "technical instructions". But, here's what I did in the event that it may help someone else.

I unscrewed all the screws that I could on the base. I removed the cover over the motor. Doing so revealed the hoses attached to the soap dispenser. Located closer to the rollers were more hoses. On the same side as the foot lever, above the wheel is the where the HEATER is located.

Being that I was looking for a clog, I unclamped one hose at a time; inserted a safty pin into what the hose was attached to and wiggled it; re-clamped hose afterwards.

The only slight confusion may be with the screws. There are only two sizes. I used finger nail polish to mark where the small ones went.

I reassembled it, turned it on, and it actually started spraying again!!!!!!!!

So that this "blockage" won't occur again, I will take advice I've read about cleaning Bissell's hoses out after using it.
See, taking the thing apart was really nerve racking! Especially not knowing if it would even work after I put it back together.

GOOD LUCK WITH FIXING YOUR CLOG!....you'll probably need to sooner or later.

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

My Bissel Lift-off Deep Cleaner is not taking up the water from the carpet


I try not to answer questions if I'm not positive of the answer, but I thought I'd give your question an educated guess... With a regular vacuum, if the filter is clogged, the vacuum looses suction. It makes sense, that if your Bissel is otherwise working fine... There's a good chance the filter is the problem. I hope I was of at least some help. Good luck and Merry Christmas, Bill

I have a Hoover carpet cleaner that leeks the shampoo water onto the carpet, cannot control it


The machine is standing in the upright position with clean water in it. No power to the machine. If water is pouring out, again no power to machine, then the pump is cracked. I don't know the model number so I am thinking this has a gravity fed pump. It doesn't use electricity to work the pump. Once you pull the trigger water starts to flow. If the pump has a crack water will flow all the time. Hope this helps!

Bissell cleanview carpet cleaner


There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be.
If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.

My bissell carpet shampooer won't spray out water


The tubes inside the machine are probably clogged. Dismantle top hood and disconnect the three lines at the pump, open up entire top housing and inspect heater. Disconnect two tubes and heater and blow out with air compressor. That will spray all the junk, soap that has built up and your machine will be good as new. If you can't do this yourself, contact bissell and ask where your local repair center is

Not dispersing water all I need is a manual.


I had the same prob. If you have water/soap solution at the upholstery handle, and no water/soap at the front jets, then the jets are clogged. remove the water tank, and you'll see the 2 jets (mine are red) at the front of the machine. Carefully release thw jets by squeezing the 2 tabs on top and lift out. Remove the hose that goes to the jet and clean out the jet (I used a toothpick) and rinse well. I also flushed out the system (hoses) by leaving off the jets and replacing the tanks (water and soap) I filled the soap tank with water too. Then I turned on the machine and let it run for a few minutes (I taped open the lever on the handle) to make it easy on me. Then replace the jets where you took them out, and all should be fine now. I suggest that when your finished using you machine to do your carpets, rinse out the lines with water in both tanks, to prevent soap from drying in the hoses.

Leaking Hoover Steamvac


Either you have a crack in the tank and it is running down the indise of the handle and going out the bottom, or there is a water line off either under where the tank sits or under the top cover.
