    It will not spary water or cleaning liquid. I'm so tired of problems with Bissel products! It great when it works over a few months. I've called customer service before and they just tell me to take it to a repair shop. I paid a lot of money for this one and I would think it would work over a year. I have the Bissel Green Machine also and it did the same thing. I'm done with Bissel!!!

I have the red Bissell Proheat CleanShot 2x 9500 and it would not spray water or solution from either the floor or the hand tool. I followed a tip on here and checked the red gaskets. There is one on the bottom of the water tank and one on the solution tank. My red gasket had come off the solution tank and was lodged inside where the solution tank sits. I pulled it out and reattached it to the solution tank. Now everything is working perfectly again. I hope someone else will be as lucky as me!

    I had the same issue, the solution was, I removed the spray heads,which are red, you can see them when you remove the water reservoir, both where plugged with harden soap, turned on the machine to make sure the hoses where not plugged, they sprayed good,, put the spry heads back on and voila,, it worked,,

Bissel cleaner won't stop spraying water

Remove the handle and check for continuous spray.
After handle is removed, check to make sure the valve is not stuck in the down position. If the valve is stuck in the down position, push on it manually to get it to come back up. If it is stuck you may need to get a new handle for your unit. This handle is for a variety of the ProHeat models

Check to make sure it will properly fit your model if you need a new handle.

It won't spray water!!

I have a model Bissell Proheat Platinum II Model 1699 that was not spraying. It looks to be very similar to your model. From reading other posts, this is what I did:

Frst make sure it isn't the pump. Try spraying with your accessory. The accessory does not use the heater. If you get spray with your accessory, your pump is okay. If you don't get spray, check the belt to the pump. If it isn't the belt, you may need a new pump.

Luckily, I got spray with my accessory, so now you need to check your tubing from and to your heater. As stated in other posts, the heater is located within the lower half of the handle where the POWER HEATER switches are. There are quite a few screws. It's easy to miss the one at the very top of the handle. First remove the accessory caddy and then remove one half of the upper handle. The other half of the upper handle lifts straight up allowing you to split the lower part fo the handle into a "V". It pivots at the bottom around the wheels. It took me a while to figure out that I needed to LIFT that part of the handle straight up.

Once you split the lower half, you will see the heater (aluminum box). There are two ports on the heater where the two lines connect to the heater (in and out). Use pliers to loosen the spring clip where the tubing connects to the heater to remove each line. My lines were okay. One of the ports on my heater was plugged. I used a 1/16" drill bit and hand reamed out the crud. You don't need to use a drill -- use your hand - it's safer. After you cleaned out the ports and your tubing (if needed), suggest you try it out after reconnecting the lines to the heater but before you put the handle back together. You may find that the lines or port needs more cleaning. Make sure you have water in both the water and cleaning solution vessels. As you know, no water will spray if EITHER one is dry. Turn it on and then press the little spring that's still in the handle. Hopefully you will get a water spray.

When you put the handle back together, be careful that you don't crimp the tubing. Tuck them back in the notches in the handle.

Hope this helps . Good luck.

I have a bissell proheat multi surface 2x model 9200-T 08296C. It stopped spitting the water and soap out on the floor, but still sucks from the base and hose. I took it apart to see if anything was...

I Had the same problem with my model 79011...take the upright handle apart & you will see a pot-metal rectangular box midway down the lower section of the handle with wires on it & 2 hoses attached. This is the water heater unit. LET IT COOL IF YOU JUST HAD THE UNIT ON AS IT WILL BE HOT!!! Take the hoses off & carefully **** the inlets out ( do NOT probe more than about an inch in) with a piece of coathanger wire. Flush heater unit out by hooking a peice of hose up to the heater unit & blow into it to flush the loosened crud out. Hook it all back up & it should work like new! What happens, is the alkalis in the cleaning solutions react with the pot-metal & cause corrosion to build up, eventually clogging the unit, thus not allowing waterflow thru it. Built to fail just like all modern junk! ;) Hope this helps! Ross

If water is spraying from the tool hose, then check the heater for a blockage. If the heater port is blocked, then the water can't flow back down to the spray nozzles, which could also be clogged. Most likely a clogged heater, it is in the handle.
