Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

My clean water wouldnt spray. I also felt that the tank wasnt sitting right in the machine. As suggested by reddevil6, the rubber seal was in the bottom hole on the machine rather than on the water tank itself. Had to pull it out with tweezers and re-fit it onto the water tank.... problem solved.!!!

The repair facility will tell you to buy a new machine. But here are the things you should check first:

  1. Make sure there is water in the main tank and cleaner (or water) in the detergent tank.
  2. Make sure that if you press on both tanks that water (or cleaner) comes flowing out fast. If it doesn't, you'll find you can clean these and there is in fact a filter on the big tank on the other side that you never see since you never take it off. Mine was clogged. So unscrew both of these black tank caps and clean all sides. Put them back on.
  3. Make sure that the two red rubber gaskets are attached to the removable tanks (and seat properly on them) and NOT attached to the machine. So when filled with water, both tanks should dispense lots of water freely when depressed. And the red gaskets are on the removable parts.
  4. Make sure that you seat both tanks firmly in the machine. The detergent tank should "click" when seated (press back and down to seat it and you'll feel it click).
  5. If you are using the hand attachment, make sure the machine is upright, the seals are in place, and the power cord is routed away from the machine and isn't preventing any seals from making contact.
  6. When you turn on the machine, do NOT spray it. WAIT. Run it for 60 seconds in order to prime the pumps.
  7. If that fails, you can try running a mixture of water and vinegar to try to clean the lines.

    Also:


    1. Put some hot water in the tank and run it on clean only through the hose.
      Remove the nozzle at the end. When you press the button on the hose, the water
      should squirt out at least 12 inches and maintain that until the water in the
      main tank is nearly out.

    2. Check that the red part inside the main tank is freely moving. Not sure what
      this is, but it might be some sort of "full" bypass.

If you are able to get water through the hand tools hose, then your pump is in good condition- if not, it sounds like a pump gone bad, otherwise it sounds as if your heater has a blockage or you have a crimp in a line somewhere. I have written a hopefully helpful manual for the BISSELL 7901-1, I will gladly send you a copy of it, though I would appreciate maybe a dollar or two for my time- email mage0213@aol.com and if you feel generous, send a dollar or two to paypal mage0213@aol.com. If you don't think it''s worth a dollar, just email me and I'll send you a copy of it (must have a valid email address)

SOURCE: bissell carpet cleaner won't spray water or cleaner

If I may! In most cases the heater is clogged. It might be clogged with soap that has harden over time. You need to take the handle apart. You will see a metal box(thats the heater) besides the wires there are two tubes connected to the heater. remove the tubes but label or watch which tube goes where. now turn the heater upside down. there are 6 screws on the side and 1 in the middle. remove them carefully. the 6 on the side have a small gaskets under them..you don't want to lose them. the 1 in the middle has no gasket, now the bottom plate of the heater can be taken off (there is a gasket with that plate ...be careful . you will now see the long channels inside the heater and need to clean it. the holes where the tubes where connected have to be clean also but carefully. the metal is soft.so it bends. now put it all back. hope this helps. if you want to keep this from happening.the best way is to run clear water after you are done.this will remove any soap in the machine which will harden after the machine drys out. hope I helped .

and to mr. reddevil6 I am learning lots from you. Thanks

SOURCE: bissell proheat 7 will not spray water or cleaner

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the main machine.

As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.

Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).

There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.

Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.

In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!! g

SOURCE: Have a Bissell Proheat2 will not spray water from

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.

One pointer that can help between uses is running water through the lines. First, put clean water in both tanks and set your unit to the heavy traffic setting for one pass. This will flush out any cleaning formula in the lines so your spray tips won't get build-up between uses, which can lead to a lack of dispensing the cleaning formula.

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.
