    Hi,



    I have used my Bissell ONCE!! worked fine... Now that I am trying to use it again after a gap of 1 yr, I find that the machinr is not spraying water-soap solution out.

    The water tank & the soap dispenser are full. I have tried to clean the brushes underside.. that looks fine. I unscrewed the plastic see-thru cover & can see the red sprays.. looks ok.. nothing clogged per se that i can see... so screwed it back. HELP!!

    Hello, i was having the same problem and decided to troubleshoot. When I remove the container that hold the cleaner the water moves through and it can be used but only if I physically put small amount of cleaner directly into the part of the machine that holds the cleaner.....weird, I wonder if i need that part, maybe the valve is bad...

    I went to use my cleaner tonight and got nothing. It won't spray from the main or the hand tools. I have checked the belts and they are just fine.

I bought it brand new. I used it twice. The first use was it worked fine, the second time it wouldn't work, got it serviced for $120, now it won't work again.
You need to service it for $120 everytime you use it!
Solution-never buy anything made by Bissell again.

Just rent a steam cleaner from the supermarket when you need it, it's cheaper than owning one of these crappy lemons, and saves you storage space.

    I had the same problem that is listed above (the hand sprayer would work, but not the floor sprayers.) After disassembling I found the small spray heads mounted in the front of the unit (just above the brushes) were clogged with small calcium deposits. After cleaning the debris out of the floor sprayers, it works like new again.

    I have to second your comment - the nozzles can become clogged due to accumulation of dirt too. They are VERY easy to remove and clean.

I too had the problem of water spraying when it was set at water rince. Then when it went to soap/water, it stopped spraying. My husband found that the red rubber stopper on the soap dispenser was missing. Not sure where he found it. When it put it back on, it worked fine. I have only had it for a short time, so I am not sure if I will have bad luck like some of you. I will see in a year from now.

Solution is to never buy a bissell carpet cleaner, I suggest a hoover. I bought this steamer used it once, then a few months later I tried using it and no water is spraying out....What a waste of money. Product is not promising and no guarantee.

Bissell carpet cleaner not spraying water out of bladder

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
You may have a bad water pump or the trigger assm may not be working properly and not functioning well or there is a valve under the water tank that sometimes is defective and you may have to replace the tank but those are the 3 things that I know of to resolve the issue, or you can check with your local vac dealer in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

I had the opposite problem happen on mine. It wouldn't stop spraying! I ended up taking it to a shop and hiring a carpet cleaner while I waited for it to get fixed. Luckily it's working now! http://www.homepriderugcleaning.com/carpet-cleaning.html

SOURCE: Bissell ProHeat Carpet Steam Cleaner stopped spraying.

Problem could be a stopped up heater unit which is located in the handle. The two clear hoses going up the inside of the left wheel go to the heater. There is also an in-line water switch located directly above the heater. The trigger for water release is in the top part of the handle. back to the heater... mine was corroded inside. Removed 5 screws holding heater cover. clean water trough and reassemble. If you need new washers go to Ace hardware. The smallest size metric rubber washers seem to work fine. take old rubber washers(red?) with you for comparison.

The spray hoses are bocked. The only way to clean them is to take the clear plastic cover off, un screw the base, lift cover, pull out red spray nosels, disconnect from main hose and wash under tap. Takes ages to do and is very fiddly.
Design fault as grit gets into spray holes.
Make sure you always clean machine after use,

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

Took inner bladder out now won't hold water


Inner bladder is needed to hold the fresh water for spray. Make sure the bladder is pulled through the bottom of the tank and that the black cap with a red rubber seal on the bottom of the tank.


If the black cap is missing you'll need to purchase a new one. Here's a quick link.

Whare does the dirty water go in the bissel 12 amp pro heat carpet cleaner


the clean water goes into a "Bladder Bag" that is located inside the tank. The way it is designed to work, as the clean water dispenses from the bladder bag, the outer part around the bladder bag fills with the dirty water. It never touches the clean water. Seems wierd, but it works! I hope this helps, if it does, please give feedback, as it helps me to gain ratings. Thank you! Remember to have your cleaners serviced every year by a qualified tech!
