Question about Bissell 1715-G Spotlifter Bagless Handheld Vacuum
My spot lifter won't spray water. The suction is fine. The support lady from Bissell suggested cleaning the hose, but she didn't say how to do it.
Ok - this works even though it probably isn't the "best" solution. Unclog the input and output nozzle ares with a pin. The input area (behind the solution) was my clog problem - I put 2 or 3 drops of CLR into the hole, waited 5 minutes, then primed the trigger. This unclogged it! Fill the tank with a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and warm water. Insert tank into unit and spray out the contents into the sink. This will eliminate any leftover CLR residue and clean the nozzle thoroughly. For the intake (suction part of the tank) I just rinsed through the lines with the vinegar mix and it seemed to unclog the rest. These things are a pain to take apart and if you break any pieces you'll be stuck - replacement parts have been discontinued for older models.

I have found that some of these models that have a heater in them will clog up from calcium, if the heater clogs, then water cannot flow. You will need to dis-asemble it, take the lines off of the heater, using a nail or pin, clean out the ports that the water lines were hooked to, blow thru it afterwards to see if it is clear. If this is the problem, put it back together, then run a solution of vinegar and water thru it for several minutes to clean out the flow solution.
