    I too have the problem of the little red thing not turning and the water will no dispense from the wand or the base. I tried the suggested solution of cleaning the tubes by the heater but could not get to that section. I took every screw I could find out of the handle and could not get into the bottom section by the heater. I took out two screws on the back but could find none on the front. Does it help to use very hot water to start with?

Do you mean the handle? If so, there are 2 screws and nuts holding the top part of the handle on, remove these then pull off the top part. Then on the back, near the bottom, are 2 holes that go in aways and there is a screw in each one, remove them and the two halves of the handle will come apart and you can get to the heater and lines.

When you remove the hose to use the utensils, the dirt is flying out of the hose at the bottom where the utensil is removed from


Hi Karen. I understand how frustrating this can be. Dust blowing from the bottom hose is normal because the brush is still rotating. If there's excessive dirt flying out, then you may have a clog in the bottom hose.
Here's a quick link to check for clogs: http://www.bissell.com/FAQDetail.aspx?id=1419&cid=ccsocial

I misplaced manual for Bissell Bagless Cleanview II, nothing being picked up in the plastic bin, where to I look for clog other than bottom of hose near bottom plate please?


Recline the vacuum fully to the floor when looking for clogs in the lower hose. You can run a broom stick through the upper hose to remove any clog. Also, check the brush to make sure there is no obstruction. Lastly, make sure all 3 filters are clean and clear because if they are dirty that can restrict air flow drastically. You can purchase filters at www.bissell.com

WHEN WE USE THE HOSE ON THE VACUUM DUST AND PET HAIR COME OUT OF THE HOLE HELP


A clogged hose is the most likely problem. Disconnect hose at both ends and try dropping a coin through it. If clogged, use a broom handle to push clog back through.
If the hose isn't blocked, check the tank where the hose attaches. Just inside clogs often form. Clean if necessary.
Check the filter, and change if dirty.

No suction using extension hose for Bissell Bagless Upright vacuum. i checked for clogs and found nothing. shannon


Check the sole plate where the beater bar is. You may have to remove the roller brush flap to get into the roller brush and then check the main dust channel beside it. Usually if there's no suction on the hose it means that:
1) The hose is blocked 2) The filters are needing cleaned / washed and dried for 24 hours or see my tips! 3) There is dust clogging after the beater bar/roller brush.

9200 Bissell carpet cleaner, water will NOT dispense


My Bissell also STOPPED SPRAYING WATER.

I've owned a Bissell 9200 for a few months. I've used it twice, the last time most likely being around August. I attempted to use it this past weekend and it wouldn't spray. I searched all the help sites I could find and thought the solution was a clog in the heater, which many said was located in the arm. After I took the arm apart, to my surprise, THE HEATER IS NOT LOCATED IN THE ARM OF THE 9200 MODEL.

It's still under warranty, however am not located near a service center so I took it upon myself to try to fix it.

I'm just a single female who ends up trying to fix a lot of stuff herself so, I don't speak "technical instructions". But, here's what I did in the event that it may help someone else.

I unscrewed all the screws that I could on the base. I removed the cover over the motor. Doing so revealed the hoses attached to the soap dispenser. Located closer to the rollers were more hoses. On the same side as the foot lever, above the wheel is the where the HEATER is located.

Being that I was looking for a clog, I unclamped one hose at a time; inserted a safty pin into what the hose was attached to and wiggled it; re-clamped hose afterwards.

The only slight confusion may be with the screws. There are only two sizes. I used finger nail polish to mark where the small ones went.

I reassembled it, turned it on, and it actually started spraying again!!!!!!!!

So that this "blockage" won't occur again, I will take advice I've read about cleaning Bissell's hoses out after using it.
See, taking the thing apart was really nerve racking! Especially not knowing if it would even work after I put it back together.

GOOD LUCK WITH FIXING YOUR CLOG!....you'll probably need to sooner or later.

Vaccuum will not ****


Remove the hose from the holder, if you have suction at the end of your hose, then the problem is down below that point. Check the dirt inlet for a clog. Also the belt may have stretched and isn't turning under load. If you haven't replaced the belt in a while, change it and check the brush roll and make sure the ends are turning freely.
If no suction at the end of the hose and your hose is cleat, then the filters are clogged, check all of them.

Clogged Bissell


Something must be in the hose causing a clog, take the hose off and if suction is good where the hose hooks up, then there is something caught inside the hose.

Did you check the inlet hose down by the brush roll, it may be clogged there. Your system says that that must be a clog. Did you drop something like a big marble down thru the hose and have go all the way thru?
