The water solenoid that controls the flow of water to the floor nozzles is prone to and known for failure. Replace it. Less than $12.00 part.

I have a bissell pro heat carpet cleaner. It is model 25a3 and about 1 year old. no water comes out when I press the trigger to clean the floor. The tools attachment works fine, any ideas?


If you are getting water from the tool. But not at the floor the most likely problem is the heater is clogged with coagulated soap or minerals. You will need to separate the upper handle to get to the heater. Insure the machine is unplugged. Remove the cover from the heater making sure you don't lose the little gaskets on each screw. Clean the channels inside the heater and put the cover back on. Be aware of how you are Taking it apart so you will know how to reassemble it.

Bissell carpet cleaner not sucking up.


I have a Proheat 2X and had the same problem. I tried the Water Rinse setting and found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Cleaner Solution Not Dispensing On Bissell 9200 Pro Heat Cleaner


I haven't had this particular issue (yet... knock on wood!) with my Bissell, but remember that the shampoo will not dispense with no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue because sometimes you think it has water but it doesn't) or water not flowing through the machine due to clogged sprayers-- another issue-- but since you're getting water on the floor that is not your issue-- or with the handle locked in position. If none of that fixes it, try removing the shampoo container, stand over a sink, and push your finger up inside the grommet where the shampoo container mates with the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out. If it doesn't, unscrew the grommet (holding the container upside down of course so the shampoo doesn't gush out) and use your finger and running water to try and the grommet cleaned out.

If this isn't helping, it may be that your soap pump or soap dispensing trigger switch are defective.

Bissell power shoot carpet cleaner


It sounds like the heater may be plugged. This is a problem for an experienced technician. The heater is located in the handle and they are prone to plugging at the tubing connections. The heater is heating soap and water solution and this can cause the soap to coagulate and plug the lines. It must be addressed carefully to avoid damaging the heater.

Will not dispense soap from handle


The soap dispenser, on the side, make sure the seal is on the bottom of it and not in the hole. You may have to replace the valve asm for the dispenser part # 2101795
