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!!

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.

Remove the bottom in order to access the innards and clean out all teh gunk you will no doubt find gathered there. Unhook one end of each clear plastic hose. Obtain a very small test-tube brush (only slightly smaller than the opening in the plastic tubes, approx. 3mm) and carefull scrub out each tube, then use the crevice tool from a vacuum cleaner (Bissell, of course), tape closed all but a small operening with ubiquitous duck tape, **** out the dirty water and any debris. Then reassemble the unit (good luck on that deal if you do not first secure an exploded diagram. Do not fail to do this or your wonderful Bissell will be laid to rest in your garage or landfill!) Before using, run several cups of clear water and a strong detergent like TSP to be sure all the "pipes" are clear and you see spray.  Good luck, Bill

How does the carpet cleaner work


Resolve carpet cleaner is a cleaner specifically designed to work on carpets. Resolve comes as a steam concentrate, a powder, a foam spray, or liquid spray. Before using the carpet cleaner you should vacuum the carpet. Resolve carpet cleaner works by being applied to the carpet then worked in with a soft bristled brush. Depending on the cleaner, it will be sprinkled or sprayed onto the carpet. Use the brush to work the cleaner down into carpet fibers. There is a waiting period for the cleaner to work, then you vacuum the cleaner out of the carpet.

I have bissell cleaner 8920 it will not release the cleaning fluid and water


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.


If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:


REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

My bissell proheat 12amp is not spraying water


Pumps are a very common problem on these units. check pump belt first and make sure spray jets above the brushroll are not clogged. Most likely have to replace the pump. If you need me to walk you through this or need parts let me know.

Water wont spray out of bottom carpet cleaner but will out of the scrubbing hose


First try putting in a little hot water in the water resevoir , let sit for about about 5 mins. then try it. if this doesn't work, flip the machine over and locate the spray jets on the bottom. You'll need a pin or something small enough to clean out the jets bye sticking pin or paperclip in it . Detegent left in the machine sometimes cloggs the jets.Empty water before you flip the machine over.

Bissell carpet cleaner


If water is spraying from the tool hose, then check the heater for a blockage. If the heater port is blocked, then the water can't flow back down to the spray nozzles, which could also be clogged. Most likely a clogged heater, it is in the handle.

Trouble with Spotbot


My problem wasn't a problem with a new unit. We have had ours over a year and it has been flawless up until a few days ago. Ours stopped pumping cleaner for both the manual hose and the automatic section. Other solutions of priming the pump described make sense, but that was not my problem. When I would press the manual hose button a very short squirt of liquid would occur and then nothing. When I looked at the receptacle for the cleaner tank on the Spot bot side, there was a gray fuzz in there. I tried cleaning that with an old toothbrush and it came right out. It was a filter of some sort. It was gray on one side, black on the other and about the size of a dime. I guess over time the filter has gotten clogged and didn't allow a full flow of liquid. I removed the filter and put the tank back in. The unit works perfectly. I am going to try to clean the filter, put it back in and see if the unit will work. If not, the filter is history.
