When i turn on my auxilliary pump, water still flows out.
My pump is a 100 psi. I switch from doing a prescrub and hook my wand up, or if I hook up my hand tool and put on auxilliary pump and make sure the pump is not on continuous flow, water still leaks out, how can I solve the problem.

I just had the same problem with my hoover duros, the vacuum was running fine but the powerhead kept going off. I would make a sweep with it and powerhead would be running and then next sweep powerhead would shut off. I had tried checking connection and belt, etc. I thought it was the powerhead. But then I found the problem. On the duros there are 2 pieces of wands that hook powerhead to hose on canister. They both connected and clicked in fine but I decided to check them separately. I hooked just one piece to hose and powerhead and then turned it on and then I did the other piece. ta-dah! that's what it was...it was only one section of the wand. When I hooked them up separately, one piece the powerhead worked totally fine and vacuumed like normal. When I removed that piece of wand and tried the second piece (actually the bottom section when both are hooked together) the powerhead did not work at all. So I just need to get a new section of wand. Hope this helps!
Any automatic pumps operate off a swith that is turned on when the water rises. They normally have some type of ball lift, that will raise the switch when water is high and then drops with the water and shuts the pumps off. It sounds like yours is stuck and not activating the pump.
Have you checked for the sprayer nozzles under the clear vacuum housing are not plugged with some foreign debris, carpet fibre buildup etc. Place the unit on bare floor and engage/turn on the motor/pump and pull the trigger/switch? No water? Check also that the hose/attachment wands have water or not? If they are operating then the nozzles to the carpet off the main unit may need to be cleared by using a pin (Safely) se if there is no foreign debris in sprayer nozzle. I have seen soap solution gone crystalized and the minute pieces clog up the on board prefilter and yet somehow clogs the nozzles as well. you may have to take the top of the unit off (approx. 6 screws) and see if there is water flow or maybe a kink in water /sprayer/nozzle line. Good luck
With this model you need to prime the hose while holding your hand over the suctionand pulling the trigger. One thing you may need is a new white nozzle tip. If you are mechanically inclined, this is a simple repair. You may also have a pump issue, whis may require shop replacement. cost of the pump is about $30
The thoe or the wand is clogged. Remove the hose at the machine end, reverse it and turn the machine on. This should **** the blockage out, the way it got in. If you hear the motor straining, it's still clogged. I've already taped a small hook, like a screen door hook onto a broomstixk and fished into the blockage to remove it. Be carefol. If you puncture the hose by pulling too hard, the hose will be ruined. Tahe your time and look for something unecpected, like a toothpick or a LEGO piece. They and vacuum cleaner friendly.
I have replaced this pump before, and had the pump "seize" again. I hooked the output of the bissel to a siphon pump to pull a vacuum while i had the input hose (with the little filter) submerged in a bucket of water. After i got the pump started, I submerged both the inlet and outlet hoses (after the trigger handle) into a bucket of warm water and turned the spray switch on to circulate clear water through the whole deal
You have the vacuum and the basin, you put them together just like when you vacuum but don't put water in the basin. There is a large white container that comes with the shampooer. you fill that up with water and then you place the vacuum cleaner and the basin on top of that. Now you will need the water hose (not the one that has the gas pump hadle). Hook that in the same spot that you do for vacuuming. Then you take the shampooing handle( it will have a trigger and a little white bottle and some tubes hooked to it) the one end of it hooks to the water hose and the other end hooks to the wands. There are 2 wands that come with your shampooer. At the end of those the shampooer head will be attached. There are two separate tubes there is a thick tube ( there two tubes fused together) and a thin tube, they hook to the large white container that you fill with water. Just look and you will see where they go. Then there is a tube that hooks to the shampooer head at the bottom. The you take the little bottle and fill it with your shampoo. You should have gotten some clips to hool onto your hose so that you can keep the tubes attached to it so they aren't in the way. You should be set. I hope I helped.
If you are talking about the hard wood floor brush you hook it at the end of the one slightly bent wand. Look at the end of the brush that you would hook to the wand. In the circle opening there are two slits. On the end of the wand there are two bumps. You need to line them up, push the brush on then twist it around so it stays on. then you attach the straight wand to that and the other slightly bent wand at the other end of the straight one. It will go like this Wet hose, slightly bent wand, straight wand, slightly bent wand, and floor brush. I hope I helped. Leave the basin empty. put your water or cleaner on the floor scrub it around then turn machine on and suck it up.
