Does this model have the foam sock around the float in the recovery tank? If so, temporarily remove it and see if that solves the problem. If so, wash the sock of any foreign debris.

Originally worked fine, but after storing it for about 8 months-a year, it still powers on and sucks but it will not squirt the water and soap to wet it, or even spray just the water to rinse. Help!!! I'm...


Hi,

First, check to see that you put the water in the bladder rather than in the clear tank. Second, did you fill the solution bottle? The Bissell shampooer will not spray water if either of these is empty.

Also, if the seal on your take did not fully seal, the water will not come out. Take the tank out and be sure it is firmly seated.
Another reason for no spray could be if the pump isn't primed. To do this, first turn the machine off for at least a minute. Then turn it back on again.

This usually solves most problems. If it doesn't, comment back to us.

I hope this helps. If it does, I would appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

This may be caused because the pump belt has stretched or broken or the pump is seized and will not turn. Remove the pump belt and turn the pump rotor with your fingers to see it turns freely. If it does then the pump should be OK but the belt may be stretched and will need replacing. If the unit does not spray after changing the belt then clean the spray nozzles at the front of the machine and make sure that water flows to the nozzles OK. You can check this by temporarily disconnecting the nozzles from the plastic pipes.

Main causes for no spray.

Bladder may be empty.
SmartMix Bottle may be empty.
The Filter may be clogged.
Tanks may not be seated properly.
Pump may have lost prime.
The Pump Belt may be broken.

2 front jets are blocked. This is a common problem. When the machine is standing for a while the detergent turns to a gel causing the blockage Lay the Bissell on its side then where the water comes out of the jets at the bottom of the machine unblock them using a pin to poke through the hole in the centre.

Try running hot water through the system with no detergent to empty out all the residual detergent. Keep running hot water through the system by pressing the button you press for it to spray the water do this for about 5 mins 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. Do this once a month to ensure that the pipes and jets are kept clean and free of any detergent gel build up.

This sounds as though the pump belt is slipping. This may be caused because the pump belt has stretched slightly or the pump is seized and will not turn. Remove the pump belt and turn the pump rotor with your fingers to see it turns freely. If it does then the pump should be OK but the belt may be stretched and will need replacing. If the unit does not spray after changing the belt then clean the spray nozzles at the front of the machine and make sure that water flows to the nozzles OK. You can check this by temporarily disconnecting the nozzles from the plastic pipes.

Main causes for no spray.

Bladder may be empty.
SmartMix Bottle may be empty.
The Filter may be clogged.
Tanks may not be seated properly.
Pump may have lost prime. Check all the fluid tubes / hoses for leaks or blockage (see below).
The Pump Belt may be broken.

Hoover SteamVac Model F5887-920 - hand attachment won't spray


I have a model I got in 2001. I found that the water sprayer on the hand tool is driven by a little turbine that relies on suction from the main vacuum motor. I eventually found that the spindle inside the turbine had separated and hence the hand-tool wouldn't spray. I glued it together but that only fixed the problem until it broke again. I am going to buy another (about $23).

Will not spray the water


if this is a new model take of the handle ,If you look down were the handle plunger fits into machine you should see a valve.
press the top of the valve in ,if the machine sprays water then the fault is the handle plunger is not making full contact with the valve, ad a small pad to the end of the handle plunger ,
this should make the machine work

Steamvac quit spraying


Check the seal that the clean water tank sits on, may have come loose. The filter inside the dirty water tank has been pushed up too far, needs to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
