The clear shroud covering the front of "hood" has two sheet metal type screws at the bottom in front of the brushes, these two screws also hold the little straight brushes ( one on each side) in place. I found one of these screws had broken it's plastic "socket" and was no longer applying any pressure to the hood, this caused loss of suction and would not pick up any water...You can test this by applying a little pressure to the "clear hood" after you have applied water and shampoo. You should immediately see water entering the pickup reservoir container. I removed the broken plastic "socket" and replaced original screw with a longer wood/sheet metal screw. I think this is a weak point on the cleaner and is easily broken by catching the front lip on any hard object. Hope this helps

Biseell little green machine wont squirt water out


The Pumps on these go bad after a couple of months. They rust and will sometimes spray and other times not then eventually not work at all. If your a handy man pull the top off it and remove the pump motor and replace it yourself. The part number is 603-5029 you can put this number in google shipping and get it to your door for about $15 and replace it yourself or have a friend do it. Ebay has tons of them once again just put in the part number and a list of them will come up.
Thanks and have a good one
Sincerely, CRTN

No water spraying out


Problem; No water or solution
After taking the unit apart TWICE trying to determine the problem I finally realized that the rubber washer on the bottom of the solution tank had come off the tank. It was stuck in the drain - I pulled it out of the drain and put it back on the bottom of tank. Now the tank could sit down properly on the drain. As soon as I put the tank back on the machine, bubbles came up through the solution in the tank indicating that solution had drained into the system as it was supposed to.
I started up the machine and it worked like new again.

Water wont dispense from bissell carpet cleaner


Ensure you have water in tank and solution (or water in solution tank). When you start the vacuum up, the pump starts to prime itself. If you have air in the system, it takes a little longer to prime. Allow the vacuum to run for 1 minute before attempting to pull the trigger. Then pull the trigger.
If this doesn't work, you'll need to open the unit up and check the hoses for any clogs, and next test the pump to see if it is functioning.

Dirt/Collection Tank Bissell Little Green


I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good

Hoover floormate


The tank sits on what is called the reservior asm. it is actuated by the control rod inside the handle. With the tank off, watch and see if you can see that rod hitting the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger. If it is moving up and down on it, then the resorvior asm may be bad. Also check the valve at the bottom of the tank, manually push it in and see if it releases water.

Bissell Quicksteamer


the problem is that after used you have to run clear water through it. the reason is that once you put it away there is still soap inside the tubes. after some time the soap gets hard and clogs it. in the case of the machines that have the heat the heater is also full of hard soap.

good luck

Bissell carpet cleaner won't spray water or cleaner


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

Polti Vaporetto 2400: Water out light comes on when tank is full


Hi you need to put 5ml of Kal Stop fo Polti machines into 1000/1500ml of water into the tank, The stronger solution is better (1000ml) Let it heat up and this should break down the limescale on the solenoid. I tried this today and it has worked saving ££££'s in repair by Polti.
