I have cleaned the cleaner completely, short of taking other parts off......cleaned the bladder and dirty tank, and plug/emitter, the shampoo storage and emitter, the bristles and area around the belts, etc. Can I get a copy of the schematics somewhere so I can see how to clean or check lines for clogs.......or air flow etc and other items you referred to in the other fix it reply. purchased 7/21/08

Re: bissell pro heat 2x model 9200
With this purchase date, this has a years warranty, may be better to take it in for warranty service, they can void your warr. if you take it apart. The 2 spray nozzles may also be clogged. But these pictures may help:

Manual version: Prepare a cup of white vinegar and 4 cups of water. Pour into reservoir and initiate "clean" cycle. Boiler was warm up, shut off and repeat over the period of about a half hour, and then finally cough up all the stuff and end the cycle. Then, fill with cold water and run a full brew cycle to rinse.
My version: Dump about a quarter cup of CLR into the reservoir, let stand for a half hour. Then, add 4 cups of water and run the "clean" cycle. After finishing, unplug and turn unit over over the sink to completely drain, use tap water to clean and flush the reservoir thoroughly, dry thoroughly and then plug in, reset the clock and brew time, and run a full load of drinking water/distilled water through to final rinse. It will last forever with my method.
Try running a few cycles of fresh water mixed with a ``descaling`` solution sold at most grocery big box stores. Run the machine WITHOUT coffee.. Then run a few more pots of fresh water (no descaling solution). ,to clean out any residue. Are you using any type of bottled water when making coffee?? If you are, I would just use tap water or ``brita filtered`` water.
Good luck and happy brewing...
The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.
Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours. Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water. If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.
I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck
Empty the water...
start with half distilled water... half white vinegar...
just run it all day... take a break and let the vinegar work... it will be heated up in the main tank... then pushed out to all hoses and sensors etc.etc...
enpty the container... wash it out... fill it with filtered or distilled water and run that until you no longer taste/smell the vinegar...
consider buying a brita pitcher and use that water for your Keurig... I do... and my unit goes for a long long time before it needs a vinegar washing...

I do love our Cuisinart pot...but find they only last 2-3 years...so my suggestions is: if the pot is still in warranty, call Cuisinart for a new one...they are great about it. If you don't know if it is still in warranty, call them, give them the number and they will tell you.
First open it up and run it without any milk attached until just mostly steam is coming thru. Turn off - then drop the tube into a jug of milk which is locted below the outlet. If its steaming, the milk will be heated up ok - it may need flow adjusting - lift the thin 'plug' near the tube up and down to adjust flow. You can add to the froth by lifting the tube out of the milk for a moment then back in again a few times.
To clean the unit just run clean water tru as tho it was milk until it comes out totally clear (about 1/4 cup). For hygiene sake make sure the tube is wiped clean on the outside with a clean paper each and every time when finished.
You can flush your main coffee lines out by making out its doing a large preground coffee - but don't put any preground in.
Select preground - select large coffee and go. Pays also to remove the brew unit and wash in warm water once a week - saves coffee goo building up and causing it to stick.
This often happens when there is too much coffee put in to start with. The coffee grounds expand when wet so take up more room. If it is too full to start with then the water has to build up too much pressure and that raises the boiling point. When the espresso is finished the coffee grounds should not be packed solid. You should be able to poke a hole in it with your finger.
