Question about Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum
I had this problem. It was small pieces of debris that got into the solution lines and clogged all the nozzles. There is a nozzle for the handheld attachments, one on the front of the machine for spraying spots and two nozzles underneath just behind the rotating brushes.
It was a royal pain disconnecting the clear rubber hoses inside the machine and blowing out the nozzles and the hoses with compressed air. If you are mechanically challenged I'd suggest you take the machine to a vacuum/steam cleaner repair facility.
I'm not sure how the debris got into the solution system, but it may have been when the dirty water tank was emptied some of the dirty water entered the internal, clean water bladder.
A note to Bissell engineers: This issue can be prevented if you simply add an easily accessable solution and/or water filter that the customers can remove, clean and reinstall. Just a suggestion.

I just had the same problem... my hand held was working but not the floor cleaning part of my machine. The two red sprayers on the front were clogged... EASY!!! I thought it was gonna be the motor or something exspensive... So I got a pair of vice grips and a screwdiver took the sprayers off got a needle from my sewing stuff and put it through the heads on the sprayers and sure enough it was filled with white stuff... which I am assuming it was calcium deposits... cleaned them out and put back together.... works good as new again :)

The sprayer nozzles could be clogged with some foreign obstruction and may need to be pulled out and cleaned. You could also have a kink in a hose within the motor/pump compartment area that needs to be released or air blockage. You can unscrew the top from the base (unplugged of course) approx. six phillips screws and see if there is a kink in a line and you can still start the unit /power up and view water in lines going to nozzles in /under the unit.
