If your floor cleaner doesn't spray, chances are the heater unit is clogged. It is easy to fix if you have a few simple tools and are mechanically inclined.
Steps to fix:
- The heater unit is located inside the body of the machine, behind the power/heater switches. Remove 6 screws and split the case open.
- The silver metal "box" inside is the heater unit. Take note of how the hoses and wires are connected. Better yet, take a digital photo for reference.
- Remove the wires and hoses.
- Take the box to a work bench, and unscrew the 6 or 7 screws that hold on the lid. Don't lose the red washers that are found on the inside of the box that keep water from leaking out of the screw holes
- You'll see a "maze" where the water runs around to get heated up. Clear this of all debris. The inlet and/or outlet ports may also be clogged. I used an appropriate sized drill bit mounted on an electric screwdriver to carefully "drill" out the clogs. Make sure all the debris has been removed. I used an electric screwdriver because my 18v DeWalt hammer drill would have been overkill :)
- Reassemble to box
- Rewire and plumb the box according to your notes or reference photo.
- Put the machine back together.
Doing this saved me a $85 repair and took 30 minutes. My machine now works perfectly.

SOURCE: shampooer tank not working
Most times there is a problem with the cap and insert at the bottom of the tank, part #2036675. Either that or the tank isn't sitting flush and down all of the way, leaving a gap. If this is less then 1 year, then it is under warranty.

First check that the top cover on the back side hasn't come loose. Sometimes the plastic around the screws break away and the top starts to separate, raising the tank, and no spray. Make sure that the gaket is on the valve at the bottom of the tank and not sitting loose in the hole. Check the pump belt. The pump may be bad.

First off is the gasket on the bottom of the tank vavle or sitting in the hole. It has to be on the bucket. May have a problem with the handle not pushing the valve (in the handle)open when you squeeze the trigger. Check the back end of the top cover to make sure it hasn't broken loose from the base, if it has, that raises the top so water won't dispense from the tank. The draw back is that Bissell has obsoleted some parts for this model.

if you unscrew a bit on the base that allows you to take off the brush, you will see a black plastic strip with very small holes in it. These are where your shampoo comes out of. Take a needle and re-pierce these holes and it should work again. I have just sorted mine out. good luck .
