How do I get my carpet shampooer to spray wate


If your machine was designed to spray hot water, detergent cleaner or a combination of both, chances are the filter/strainer inside the reservoir may have become clogged, the feed tube may be twisted and pinched closed or the spray nozzle may be clogged from various contaminants. Try and get a look down inside the container where you fill it with fluids and see what you can determine, also check the spray tip or nozzle where the fluids are supposed to be expelled for a clog. If the small service pump is the culprit, servicing or replacing the pump will be a bit more involved and parts are available from most manufacturers websites these days. Hope this is helpful :)

I have the Bissell 9400 ProHeat 2X and it will not dispense cleaning fluid. Is there anything I can check?


YES! And it was amazingly simple. The soap dispenser has a red washer/gasket thing that fits over the nozzle. For clarity, it can be viewed here: http://www.vacpartswarehouse.com/Products-p/2036677.htm
The red part can come loose and remain inside the receiver where it fits snugly and looks like it belongs there. In this configuration, the tank cannot insert far enough into the receiver to open the spring valve and no detergent will flow. Simply remove the red piece from the receiver (I used small pliers), replace it on the tank nozzle, and the detergent will flow again!

This may be caused because the pump belt has stretched or broken 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.
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.

Check the brush drive belt has not broken by inspecting from underneath. See the manual pages 21 & 22 for removal instructions. Download a copy from the following link

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.

My bissell proheat will not spray water or cleaner and the filter does not turn;


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!!

My carpet cleaner will not spray. Maybe a little thru the tool but not enough pressure to SPRAY

p.s. Make sure you do give it about a minute after you turn it on before you try spraying. If the pump is not allowed sufficient time to prime, you may not get proper flow.

Stair and upholstery attachment


After tearing things down and inspecting the handle switch, etc., I found that my problem was detergent. It sets idle for a while or doesn't get used very much and the detergent dries and actually clogs the inside of the hose. I cleared it by fully extending the hose, pressing the button and allowing the clog to clear itself. The built in heater helped out a lot once the flow started again. I used a can of compressed air to provide a little blow back to get things moving but not too much or the pump would be damaged. Remove the tool and hold the nozzle into an empty cup while depressing the trigger. A warm vinegar solution clears things out nicely. It's kinda hard for this piece go defective but easy to overlook when wrapping up and storing the unit. Remember, clean water rinse with 1/4 cup white vinegar. There, I fixed it and wasn't even broke!
