Either you have a pinched or clogged water line, or the rod in the handle is pushing down like it should. The drw back is Bissell has deemed this unit and its parts obsolete. So any parts are hard to find.

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.

The drive belt for the pump is located under a cover on the front right side as you look for the front of the machine. Just lift it up and the belt will be obvious. If it is not sucking then make sure that the dirty water tank is empty and that all the filters are clean and the front of the machine is not clogged with fibres, dirt or hair. Also check pre and post motor filters and clean them if required. Then check the mix control is working OK to allow fluid to flow out of the machine and not switched off. Bissell's are simple machines.
