Question about Bissell 1400 Little Green Pro Canister Steam Vacuum

4 Answers

I think the pump needs to be replaced in my Bissell little green machine. Some water/solution is being pushed through but not enough to spray only drip, if I hold the machine up high while using it (ie on a table) it will spray a little. Is the pump easy to replace? is there anywhere to get a parts diagram?

I got my Little Green ProHeat when the product was first unveiled several years ago. Shortly thereafter, the nozzle itself developed a clog in the spray jet. Remove the nozzle from the end of the hose, and with the machine running pull the trigger. If a great amount of solution comes out of the supply hole, then your nozzle is clogged. You can try clearing it with a very thin pin and then rinsing it out.

In about 6 months, my pump would no longer spray solution at all but I could hear the tiny pump still running inside the machine when I would pull the trigger. Remove the tanks, unplug the unit, and look carefully and you will see the few screws holding the unit together. Pull it apart carefully and don't use much force as some of it snaps together and you don't want to break those tabs. Once open, you can find the solution pump, a little fella. The drive shaft on the motor that spins the pump had rusted away completely! Design flaw. In lieu of getting it repaired, I simply started using a spray bottle for my solution application. Several years later and I'm ready to take the time to replace the pump - a very simple process. From the research I've done, the part number for the solution pump is:
Manufacturer's Part Number: 6035029
If you google search "Bissell 6035029 VacPartsWarehouse" without the quotes, you should find your part there for around $9.

Try this direct link to VacPartsWarehouse's website:
VacPartsWarehouse Bissell 1425-2 Little Green ProHeat
Click item #9. It's very simple to install. If you can wield a philips screwdriver, and pay attention to how you've disassembled the unit and then just reverse the steps, you can fix this yourself on the cheap.

Good luck! :)

The motor for the pump rusts because the design of the pump does not seal well against water leakage. Water gets out (the only thing that seals it is silicone grease) and rusts the motor. It can get so that the front of the motor shaft wobbles and that makes the leak worse.

As noted, a new pump/motor assembly is cheap. If you get one and replace it, don't forget to tie-wrap the hoses, as the factory does, or you will get leakage at the hoses.

Instead of just purchasing a new motor, try what I did: disassemble the case, remove the pump motor from the plastic housing, make sure the drive shaft is turning by using a pair of pliers to turn it, lubricate the drive shaft where it enters the motor with a drop of 3 in 1 electric motor oil (NOT WD-40, can cause more seizure). Reassemble the motor and case. Worked for me, and I saved $10 at least for now!

Check out bissell.com for troubleshooting questions. I have had luck there.. It might be a pluged hose in it. liquid mixtures can harden if you do not clean out the mechine after use.. run water through the system.. if it is a clogg or if you have calcium deposit issues in your area, try running vingar and water in the system..

    Biseell little green machine wont squirt water out


    The Pumps on these go bad after a couple of months. They rust and will sometimes spray and other times not then eventually not work at all. If your a handy man pull the top off it and remove the pump motor and replace it yourself. The part number is 603-5029 you can put this number in google shipping and get it to your door for about $15 and replace it yourself or have a friend do it. Ebay has tons of them once again just put in the part number and a list of them will come up.
    Thanks and have a good one

    Spray path is too wide. Is there a deflector available


    I had the same problem with my proheat. The water would spray a wide path out the sides. I think it must be a defect as I have replaced my unit due to another problem. I purchased the Bissell machine without the heater and the nozzle is fine.

    How to install a new water pump on a big Green machine?


    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

    We found that ours had a simpler problem. Upon opening the motor compartment, we saw that the pump had "nudged" up from it's mounting slots. It is held down by a clip on each end and one had pushed up, allowing the pump to ride up and thereby disconnecting the short hose which kept the "suction train" intact. Once we re-seated the pump correctly and pushed the clip back down, the hose reached nicely and our suction was re-established.
    Getting into the motor and pump area was the hardest part. Inside the power hose "cubbie" is a small hex head screw. Find your shortest stubbiest 1/4 inch open ended wrench to loosen this screw (lefty-loosey). Once the screw is out, gently pry along the edge with fingers and thumbs. The top (ours is green) part should separate itself from the bottom (ours is beige) part. The pump in our unit is red and has a 4-5 inch hose leading from the end of the pump to the outlet (on the outside of the green or top part). Re-assemble and go for it!

    If it isn't spraying, the pump is most likely bad, leaking from tank, depending where it is leaking, may need a new tank. But Bissell has obsoleted this unit and its parts. So unless you can find the parts somewhere, it may be time for a new one.
