Question about Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum

Open Question

My Bissell 9200 wont always pump water to the tools

When we use the tool attachment the water may or may not come out of the sprayer. I have taken the unit apart thinking there was a plug in the hose, but I don't see one. In addition to this, I can easily turn the water pump on using the upright handle switch but I don't see what turns the pump on when the tools are in use. There's just a valve in the tool handle, no switch. How does water get to the handle at all if they aren't using the pump?

What's the plastic pump looking thing with the pink filter inside and a motor/pump on the bottom? One of the two vac hoses from the tube goes to it. Curious what that is for.

I'm getting frustrated with this machine. It started doing this only a couple months after we bought it.

    I think I may have found some part of a solution. I had the chemical tank empty and the clean dial on high. I think the empty chemical tank was letting air into the system and the pumps would loose their prime. I put water in the chem tank and after a few seconds of priming themselves, the pumps started spraying water. DUH!

    Sometimes I scare myself.

    I wasn't sure how to post this but your comment about letting air into the system is key to fixing several issues with this unit. Mine would not spray any water when pulling the trigger on handle or attachment. After taking everything apart, cleaning nozzles, tubes, filters etc. putting it back together and still having no water, I was stumped. Then after reading your post I checked the solution bottle and it didn't appear to be seated correctly. The orange seal that is supposed to stay on the bottle was in the receiver therefore not making a good seal and letting air in. Once that was placed on the solution bottle everything seated correctly and water sprayed out as normal. Thanks for the hint!

SOURCE: Bissell ProHeat Clear won't spray from floor nozzels but it does stray from hand cleaner

Usually when the hand tool works ok, then the heater inside the handle asm. is clogged. The water bypasses the heater when you use the hand tool. Other then that it could be a bad pump.

SOURCE: Bissell upright vac, brush on bottom does not rotate

The front brush motor will not engage until the power is turned on and the handle is in the down position. In the upright position the brush motor wont engage. Typical faults will be the belt is broken and needs replacing or the fornt brush motor needs replacing.

It could be the pump. You can open it up and see if the pump is working by taking the pump input tube and inserting it into a bowl of water. Pull the trigger and see if water is leaving at the pump output.

However, ensure you have the simpler things covered first:
Ensure you have water in tank and solution (or water in solution tank). When you start the vacuum up, the pump starts to prime itself. If you have air in the system, it takes a little longer to prime. Allow the vacuum to run for 1 minute before attempting to pull the trigger. Then pull the trigger.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to open the unit up and check the hoses for any clogs, and next test the pump to see if it is functioning.

I have a Bissell pro heat water will not disperse from


If the red spray pieces are not clogged but the Bissell still will not dispense water, then I would say the next most likely causes of your issue was either no soap in the tank, or a burnt out water pump. But since you can get water through the tools, I don't see how that's possible. I think it's still the sprayers. When you say you stuck a needle in the eye holes of the two red spray pieces, did you actually take the two red spray pieces off the hoses to do this? And then after pushing through a needle, did you try blowing through the red spray pieces? If you can't blow air through them, they're still clogged and water won't go through, either. Here's how to get the red spray pieces off the Bissell: Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water tank pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your roller brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle, and tend to clog with mineral deposits. Only work on one sprayer at a time so you can see how it goes back together. As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, push up on the underside of the sprayer from underneath the bottom unit of the Bissell to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Clean any lint or debris out of the mount area. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush. Now you need to remove one water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip up the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. (See GOTCHA about the spring, below.) With the clip released, now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care. When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the end of the red water sprayer that was inside the hose in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. If you can't blow air through it, it's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the hose end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Click the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell. Now do the same for the other red water sprayer. The GOTCHA: Once when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. It?s best to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, fix this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (this is the surface the water tank mounts on top of), and pry it up. Pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers on the hose, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base. You might want to prime the pumps. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine (even a new one) keeps water from flowing, until you reprime the Bissell's internal pumps. To prime the pumps the easy way, turn it on, then press, hold, and release the water-and-soap trigger a few times, waiting a few seconds each time. Still nothing? Prime it the slightly harder way. Separate the two water tank pieces. Only have the base tank filled and mounted on the Bissell without the piece that sits atop the tank. Turn it on. Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel just a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times, a few seconds apart. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Thoroughly rinse out and empty both water tank pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and get all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and needs more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it?? Good luck!

My bissell 9400 pro heat steam cleaners sprayers are clogged again...how can I fix this with out taking it to a shop to get fixed?


The water sprayers on your Bissell are probably clogged. I had this problem this morning, myself, with my machine, about 15 months old. They get clogged up with mineral deposits. This is a *fairly* easy thing to fix yourself. Read all the way to the end before trying this fix.

Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water container pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle. These water sprayers tend to clog. See the metal spring running up the hose, behind each red water sprayer? As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, use a screwdriver or other tool under the spring to wedge up the hose, to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Stick a finger in the hole of the base of the Bissell where the sprayer was mounted and run it around the edges there including on the underside of the base to clean out any gunk you can find. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush.

Now you need to remove the water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip down the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. Now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care.

When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the outer end of the red water sprayer in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. You can't blow air through it, right? It's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Now you have to put it back together. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Push the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell.

Now do the same for the other red water sprayer.

I had a problem when I fixed this on mine this morning, because when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. So try to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, I fixed this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (the surface of which the water tank mounts on top of), and then pried it up. You can pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers to the hoses, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base.

There's something else you may need to do that can help get the water flowing. This one's easier. The Bissell uses pumps, which need to be primed. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine keeps water from flowing. To prime the pumps, separate the two water tank pieces. Fill the base as usual and mount it on the Bissell without the top water tank piece. Plug the Bissell in and **turn it on**. (The Bissell must be running to do this.) Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water release trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. Now that you've cleaned out your water sprayers and primed the Bissell's internal pumps, I'm hoping water will GUSH through your Bissell once again.

As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Empty all the water. Thoroughly rinse out both water container pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and blow all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and need more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it??
