Hi,

It sounds of a bad pump, belt or a clog. Check the heater inside the handle may be clogged. Running a mix of vinegar and water sometimes will clean out a clog.
Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have a bissel pro heat 2x and it wont spray


I love these and have 2 of them! The warrantees are usually good and it is your pump if both the hand held and carpet positions won't spray water. Both the soap tank and water resevoir need to have at the very least water in both for the unit to work. Yes... You can use just hot water for light cleaning in both. The pump controls both the spraying water and suction. Last, if one or the other won't spray, the unit can have residue blockage. The passages are narrow, check to see if they are clean. Last test. Turn it on, release the handle. At the base of the neck there will be an oval shaped opening. With the handle on the floor as if filling the unit with water...put either your hand or a paper plate over the hole to see if there is suction. If the pump is good, you will feel a lot of suction against your hand or the flat surface of the plate.

Refer to the discussion at the other thread: http://www.fixya.com/support/t3309646-pump_motor_sounds_like_running_but_not

You will need to remove the top domed lid to access the working parts. Refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t3543424-two_top_sections_held_together

Examine the water lines to ensure they are attached to the pump. If you feel you can do so without shocking yourself on any exposed electrical connectors, try disconnecting the inlet hose. Buy a two-foot section of the same size hose from the hardware store and connect it to the pump inlet. Plug in2_bing.gif the unit (be careful!!!) and use the pump switch to see if it draws water. Then try reconnecting the inlet and connect the outlet to the new hose to see if the pump pulls water from through its suction tube and will pump through the new hose.

My Bissell Little Green won't spray the solution. The suction seems to be working fine and the lines are all connected as they should be. What's up and how can I fix it?


I also had the same problem as you.
Try suctioning up a full tank of hot tap water into the collection tank to soften/release a possible kink in the tubing inside of the vacuum hose that carries solution out to the spray tip.
I did this a couple of times and it worked. This info I found on the Bissell website.
Good Luck!

We found that ours had a simpler problem. Upon opening the motor compartment, we saw that the pump had "nudged" up from it's mounting slots. It is held down by a clip on each end and one had pushed up, allowing the pump to ride up and thereby disconnecting the short hose which kept the "suction train" intact. Once we re-seated the pump correctly and pushed the clip back down, the hose reached nicely and our suction was re-established.
Getting into the motor and pump area was the hardest part. Inside the power hose "cubbie" is a small hex head screw. Find your shortest stubbiest 1/4 inch open ended wrench to loosen this screw (lefty-loosey). Once the screw is out, gently pry along the edge with fingers and thumbs. The top (ours is green) part should separate itself from the bottom (ours is beige) part. The pump in our unit is red and has a 4-5 inch hose leading from the end of the pump to the outlet (on the outside of the green or top part). Re-assemble and go for it!
