Check the complede length of the hose. You may find a crimp in the most inconvenient place. You say you cleaned everything ... can you blow through the hose where the cleaner comes out? (don't drink anything!)

Why does my machine vacuum has very little suction while the there is no solution come out of the hand hose?

Make sure you have the hoses hooked up properly. Also check that there is no obstruction/blockage in the hose. Otherwise, contact your friend.

I have a bissell pro heat carpet cleaner. It is model 25a3 and about 1 year old. no water comes out when I press the trigger to clean the floor. The tools attachment works fine, any ideas?

If you are getting water from the tool. But not at the floor the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with coagulated soap or minerals. You will need to separate the upper handle to get to the heater. Insure the machine is unplugged. Remove the cover from the heater making sure you don't lose the little gaskets on each screw. Clean the channels inside the heater and put the cover back on. Be aware of how you are Taking it apart so you will know how to reassemble it.

Bissell carpet cleaner wont put out water or cleaning solution

Look for a blockage in the output of the liquid--where it comes from to where it exits the unit.

Will not spray water

When this happens you usually have a blockage in the tubing. Old cleaning solution gets dried up and hardens and then blocks the tubes. You need to take the tubing off and clean it all out or untill you find the blockage. Once you get it spraying agin clean the system with hot water and flush it all out. Always spray just water for a while after you use any cleaning solutions and this will keep the tubing cleaned out. Does this help? do you need more assistance let me know.

No spray detergent comming out of bissell carpet cleaner

hi, the main reason you have no spray coming out is due to a blockage, if its new and has not been used then you need to hold the button down for 2 or 3 min before detergent comes out, how ever if you have used this before then the chances are its blocked.

The most likely place for blockage is where the water comes out of the jets at the bottom at the front so tip the vac up and give these little holes a clean with a pin or something else you can fit into the hole to remove the build up of gel caused by detergent build up.
If after doing this it still dont work then empty the detergent bottle and fill with hot but not boiling salty water and leave it in the vac for about 10 min then switch on and hold button down for couple of minutes to see if this has then cleared the blockage.

If after doing this their is still no water coming out then your going to need to take the bottom of the vac off and follow the hose the water comes out of adn check for any blockage once you find the blockage squeeze the pipe at the blockage and this should then free it up.

Now what they dont tell you when you buy these but what they should tell you is that after every use empty the detergent bottle and fill with warm clean water and then press the button and let this water flow through the vac for a couple of minutes doing this will ensure you have no more blockages.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Water doesn't come out

hi this is very common problem what you need to do is lie the vac on its side then where the water comes out of the little jets at the bottom of the vac these are usually blocked and will need cleaning using a pin to poke through should solve the problem.
If the blockage isnt their then you need to undo the screws on the bottom and keep working your way along the detergent/water lines and keep cleaning them out you will find a blockage along the way.

Try using hot water first empty out all the detergent and just use very hot water (not boiling it will melt the pipes but hot water nearly boiling will do) Keep runnig hot water through the system by pressing the button you press for it to spray the water do this for about 15 min and keep swapping the water for hotter water as it starts to cool doing this 4 or 5 times might solve your problem if not get the tools out and start looking for the blockage.

What happens is when the vac is standing for a while the detergent turns to a gell causing a blockage.

What they dont tell you in the user guide and what they should tell you is that after every use empty out all the detergent and then run warm water through the vac for about 15 min doing this will ensure you have all the detergent out and will make sure you have no further blockage.

Everyone who buys one of these types of cleaners has this same problem so you are not alone.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Unit is seated properly but water/fluid will not come out when I press the trigger. Suction works fine. Bissell ProHeat 2X used only four times.

You need to check that the motor drive belt is OK and turning freely to drive the water pump - under the flap on the right side at the front as you look at the front of the Bissell. If this is OK have you filled the cleaning bottle with fluid etc? If so you may have an airlock in the pipe from the bottle to the motor. You can also have a blockage from the pump to the dispenser nozzles and can test this by taking off the top cover and taking the plastic tubes off them to see if water comes out of the tube. You can also do the same for the tube from the tank to the pump to see if water is getting to the pump OK. Also make sure that the mix valve setting (on the left side - looking from the front) is not turned to the off position. This could also be blocked and need cleaning or replacing.

No water spraying, suction still working

I have a Bissell as well, and found that your issue sounds like there is a blockage in the hosing to the main cleaner part of your machine, The siphon action of the suction that your machine is obviously working in that you state that your accessories tubing is working. There is a split though in your unit. probably under the hood of the machine which splits the pressure between the accessories and the main unit. I highly suggest you look there to seek your blockage.
This unit works like a "straw" in a soda pop.. the unit makes a suction draw and that draw is directed to the main unit area and the accessory area, splitting from the main suction line..
Another suggestion though might be to be sure your accessory line is not "open" when you are trying to use your main unit.. you can test this by seeing it it squirts when you run your main unti as well.
Summary then is to check that there is no blockage after the "T" where the pressure seperates to the main squirter and the accessories.. This should be fairly obvious to see and a little cleaning should resolve this right up for you.
Hope that helps!

Cleaner willnot dispense water and vaccum it again. Soap dispense fine. would like a owners manual.

sounds like you have a clog in the waterline, or a pinched hose.
Locate the water line hose, disconnect, and blow through with can of compressed air.
If nothing goes have a blockage/pinch.

Problem hose

Try gently feeding a thin, springy wire down the tube to find is there is a blockage further up.
