I suggest empty the waste tank and look underneath it. Remove the black rubber gasket right under the tank and rinse it out and try clean over that spot. You should see the dirty water being suction out and the finished area should not be as wet as before.

Other previuos diagnostic, could be the vacuum motor is defective or you have the vaccum line clogged. Keep in mind that you comment that your device are working and run except the suction cycle. You'll can hear the "suction" phase when is activated this or when it loudens like a whine? That would be the vacuum phase. Have you removed the hose assy and rinsed it out? I think it is still part of the auto cycle even if you don't use the manual tool. Try and test it.

Bissell carpet shampooer model 9200-9 that is not dispensing cleaning solution


I had the same problem with my Bissell carpet cleaner. I tried all the recommendations but nothing worked. After reading all the blogs, I discovered that many people had the same problem. Fortunately, I still had the receipt from Costco which they honored and gave me a full refund. I was ready to throw it in the trash.

My SteamVac SpinScrub works fine then all of a sudden, the noise level of the vac seems higher and does not **** up water. I turn off vac then turn it back on, works good for awhile, then noisy, higher...


It sounds as if the ball in the tank in shutting down the suction prematurely. Be sure there is a gap of about 3/4 inch between the top of the filter inside the tank, and the lid of the dirty water tank. Without this gap, suction will pull the ball up too soon.

The suction stopped working after emptying dirty water and filling up with new water and cleaner


I have an older Hoover SteamVac Supreme #F5815 and I'm having trouble figuring out how to clean the part in the front that the dirty water goes thru before it gets to the tank. How do I clean it?

Just got spinscrub this afternoon and worked great until had to empty dirty water. Now there is no suction at all. Have tried to find clogs and nothing to be found. Am about to return the damn thing!!!


ok 3 things to check before re-boxing it up.

1) make sure that the lid is on properly. it should go on with the 2 tabs at the front of the machine, then click into place at the back of the machine.

2) when you emptied it, sometimes the dirt channel will fall out. This allows for the suction to go between the dirty tank and the clear channel for the water to be sucked back up.

3) when you remove the dirty water tank again, look down inside the machine for a circular hole. there should be a rubber gasket on it to seal up the tank for your suction. If it has come loose or is missing, retrace your steps between the machine where it was last used and the sink or wherever you dumped out the dirty water.

Good luck,
Mark

Sprayer is not working, but leaks water


I think you have two problems. The leaking is old seals on either the containers, or on the other end (the machine). Try replacing them. There are various part websites for these.
The problem with the spraying could be the belt that turns the pump. Check it. If it's there its probably not it. The next thing could be the little plastic tubes that go to all the componets inside the machine tend to accumulate buildup. Make sure they are all flowing free. Next try the heating element (its inside the handle area) take it apart and clean it. If all those things are checked and it still doesnt work, it might be what was wrong with mine. The all on one container that holds fresh water and dirty water has a leak. I found mine would spray correctly if i had the lid off the container, and as soon as i would put the lid back on it would stop spraying. I found out that The suction going through the container to **** the dirty water in was also putting a suction on the clean water bladder which caused the water to stop flowing out of the clean water bladder. I ended up getting an all new container with bladder because i could not get anything to seal right due to its age and warpage of the plastic. So to determine if yours is the same issue. Just take the lid off the container and then try to spray water. It may take 10 seconds to get all the tubes primed again because the suction will actually **** all the water back up to the container. If you dont want to replace the container, just spray a few passes with the lid off, then put the lid back on to **** the water back up. Hope this helps. I might not write clearly for everyone to understand, but i hope it helps someone.

There is no suction, even though the container is empty


Your hose is clogged and needs to be cleared. You may have to remove one or both ends of the hose that connects the dirt to the container.

You might have success trying to "back vacuum" the hose. A broom handle is sure to clear the clog, however.

I HAVE A BISSEL SPOT BOT THAT WON'T **** UP THE DIRTY WATER.I TRIED TO TAKE IT APART TO CLEAN IT, BUT DIDN'T GET VERY FAR. ANY SUGWSTION? THANKS, ...


No Suction
Possible Causes Remedies
Tank is full. Empty tank.
Dirty/Collection tank latch is not down. Push latch down, securely
into place.
Black Valve on the Dirty/Collection Tank is missing. Replace Black Valve into Dirty/ Collection tank.

Usually there is a seal out of place, or a filter is clogged, so you lose suction.

Low suction


Is the water seal in place or missing? Another cause would be a bad motor, running at a slower speed will mean low suction. If it is a motor, then you would have to replace it. Is the suction low at machine without the hose, if it is ok then may be a clog in the hose.
