Try taking the tank off, remove the 2 spray nozzles and blow thru them to see if they were clogged. You could try running a mix of vinegar and water, sometimes that will open up any clogs. Is the knob on the floor setting?

After the vinegar, I ran compressed air throught the smaller of the two tubes to free the calcium. Works great.

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.

Assuming this is the pro heat version
Most likely you have some debris blocking the system. You need to follow the hand tool cleaning instructions.
remove the hand tool and manually wash it
select the tools cleaning option
place the tube in a bowl of clean water and allow it to **** the water up - this should clean out any blockages in the pipe.

I can't get the solution to spray or suction from the floor . the hand attachment will spray somewhat and suction, but not from the floor. i have the blue 9200


If it is only a problem with the floor sprayer, this suggests that the nozzles or tubes to the floor unit are clogged. Take off the water storage part, and you'll see two red clips (these are the floor nozzles). Squeeze and pop these out, and see if they are clogged.

If that is not the issue, open the unit up and see if the tubing supplying the front (floor) nozzles are clogged.

Please let me know if this was the issue or not.

Bissell ProHeat 2X(9200) hose to cleaner solution no suction


There are a couple areas to check:
1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet. Ensure gasket is in good condition.
2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.

Bissell Proheat Clearview water problem


The water comes out the hose at the same time. The diverter only diverts the suction from floor to attachment. If it is constantly spraying there is a problem with the attachment. Is it not spraying on the floor?
