There are a few things that can cause a Bissell carpet cleaner to not dispense water. First thing to check is the belts if your machine is a Pro Heat. The flat belt goes around the motor shaft and the pump. As the motor runs it spins the pump. This is a stretch belt and stretch belts should be replaced at least once or twice per year to work properly as they will lose elasticity even if the machine has never been turned on. The first thing to check is to see if water will spray from the upholstery tool. If it sprays but you still get no water at the floor jets then check and clean the jets to insure they are not clogged. Getting water from the upholstery tool means the pump is working ok. If not, make sure the water tank and soap tank are not empty. Even if the water tank is full make sure the soap tank is full too. I would suggest NOT putting any soap in the soap tank because that is what causes most of the problems. Put plain tap water in the soap tank and try the machine again. Hold the trigger down giving it plenty of time to flush out any air bubbles and/or soap from the pump and the lines. If you still can't get any water from to the floor jets the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with mineral deposits or soap gunk. When a machine sits in the closet for months the soap in the lines coagulates and will clog things up. Which is why if you want the machine to work for a long time NEVER put soap in it. To do a better job of cleaning put your soap and hot water into a sprayer and use this solution to pre-condition the carpets. Pre-conditioning gives the soap and hot water a chance to dissolve the gunk in your carpets, then use fresh hot water in the machine to flush the soap and dirt from your carpets. Your machine will last longer and your carpets will be cleaner and stay clean longer because you rinsed out the soap. If you try this method you will be amazed how much cleaner your carpets will be. If you need to clean the heater you will need to separate the handle assembly by removing all the screws. First make sure the machine is unplugged. You'll have to figure out which screws need to come out, it's not too tough. The heater is inside the handle. Look at how it comes apart so you will know how to put it back together. The heater is the silver metal thing with wires and hoses. Remove the screws that hold the cover on being sure not to lose any of the tiny red gaskets. Remove the cover and clean the soap or mineral deposits from the heater core, put the cover back on and put it back together and it should work fine. To keep it from getting clogged again simply make sure you use soft water if minerals were the problem and never put soap in the machine.
you need to lie the dyson out on the floor/table and you will see some screws underneath holding the rotating brush in place, remove these with a torx bit and you will see how it lifts up to allow the belt to be replaced, just keep track of how things sit to make it easier to put back together
if the brush wheel is not spininng then you most likely have a broken drive belt.
use a screw drive to remove the screws on the floor plate and pop the plate off. there you will see if the belt is good or bad,, I am sure it will be bad and will need to be replaced. replace it and put everything back together and all will be working fine.
Be sure to unplug your vacuum from the electrical outlet before proceeding!
-Turn your vacuum upside down so that the handle is resting on the floor and nozzle portion is resting on a work bench.
-Remove the 2 phillips screws from the metal bottom plate and set the bottom plate aside.
-Look at the right side of the brush roll. You will see a bent metal rod that attaches to the brush roll end cap. This is the clutch rod that allows your brush roll to spin or not depending on the position of the carpet/floor switch on the top of the nozzle. Pull this rod out of the brush roll clutch only. Leave the switch end of the rod where it is and just let the rod rest there.
-Pull the brush roll and old belt out and dispose of the old belt.
To install a new belt; put the new belt on the motor shaft first, next put the other end of the belt over the end of the brush roll and stretch belt and brush roll back in to place. Notice that on the brush roll end cap opposite of where the clutch rod goes, there is a metal piece with a slot cut into it. Be sure that this slot mates with the plastic stop in the nozzle so that the end cap cannot move.
Snap the clutch rod back in place and rotate the brush roll by hand to make sure the belt is not pinched.
Replace the bottom plate.
1. Unplug the vacuum 2. Take the bottom cover over the brush off by removing the 3 screws 3. Switch the brush roll control lever to bare floor 4. Take the roller brush out 5. Put the belt around the small pulley from the motor 6. As you are putting the roller brush back in put the belt around the space on the roller brush - center the belt on that space - THE BELT WILL NOT BE TIGHT BUT THAT'S NORMAL 7. Reinstall the bottom cover with the 3 screws
THE BELT DOES NOT GO AROUND THE SILVER PULLEY CONNECTED TO THE BRUSH ROLL CONTROL LEVER
It is easier when you also take the top off. Then you can put the belt over the roller and re-install it, then put the bottom plate back on, then turn it over, undo the motor and put the belt on the motor pulley, re-install the motor and put the rest back together. To remove the top, thewre are a couple of scres from the bottom, then from the top, remove the Hoover emblem, there is a screw there to remove and the top will come off.
Take off the bottom plate, look in the bottom to see if there are any screw, could be 2 of them, then from the bottom there is a slot on each side of the top cover, using a flat screwdriver, insert blade into the slot and pry up to release the locking tabs. Belt # is 38528040. Put the bell over the brush roll, put belt thru opening and put atound the motor shaft, put back together.
