If it isn't spraying, the pump is most likely bad, leaking from tank, depending where it is leaking, may need a new tank. But Bissell has obsoleted this unit and its parts. So unless you can find the parts somewhere, it may be time for a new one.

LIttle Green Bissell Water goes directly to collection tank, won't spray


Had a problem with mine not spraying, took ot apart and the heater for the solution was plugged with scaling, cleaned it up and works the very best now. As far as clean water going directly into the collection tank, sounds like the little hose may have a break or a leak in the vacuum hose.

There is a spring and a silver ball that seals the water from running out of the clean water tank, it fell out and I do not know how it goes back in. Bissel 1720 little green plus green machine


if it is from the tank,,,bad news,,, you have to replace the tank as a unit. according to the picture I see is an assembly and gives no parts breakdown on it exept the complete tank. there is a cover on top of the solution tank and is possible it goes there. that you can replaced but spring-ball part dont show on graphics. update.... cover is no longer available and tank price is about $23.00 at sears website part# 603-1204.

Good luck to you.

Bissell proheat 2x not spraying water


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.


If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:


REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution...
