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

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,

The water or soap line might be clogged, or something is broken. If it is just the upright part and not the handle, then its a solenoid, if its both then either the pump motor or the pump is not working.
Here is a list of parts.
Hope this helps.

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.

Listen to see if you can hear pump run when pressing button, if the pump does run, than either you have a clogged nozzle or screen in water fill compartment.
