Bissell proheat 1698 cleaner not spraying water

Our carpet cleaner is not spraying any cleaner/shampoo mixture, although all belts and the motor seem to be working just fine. Heater is also working fine, and brushes are turning.

I noticed that the straw that draws the fluid in was at the top of the reservoir -- and all of the fluid was at the bottom. Bend the straw so that it is IN the fluid and therefore able to distribute it.

If water is coming out of the hose and not the spray tips,
try taking of the handle ,
put a small thin shim on the bottom of the plunger at the bottom of the handle ,this will make the plunger make full contact with the valve,

    make sure the bottom tank seals and solution bottle seals these are small red round seals are still attached to the bottom of the tank and bottle ,

    also make sure the brush is still spinning round,

    see if water is being dispensed from tho hose.

    make sure the handle plunger wich is at the bottom of the handle is meeting the valve

The little red dial on mine was not turning. Checked all filters and plungers and those seemed fine too. I noticed the red bristle brush was not turning. I turned over the machine and found a bunch of dog hair was caught up on the bottom including the spindle attached to the brush. Cleaned everything out and made sure the brush was turning again. Water and cleaner came out just fine after that.

If it is not dispensing water or solution it can be because the pump belt is stretch or worn and needs to be replaced. Here is the proper replacement pump belt:

I am pulling the trigger and the carpet solution won't spray out

too much cleaner in the mixture, do you see the little fan type thing in the window spin usually when you dispense cleaner well it won't spin and dispense cleaner if you get it too soapy or concentrated.

Bissell 1698 Powersteamer no spray

A simple thing to check is make sure the round seal is on the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank not sitting loose in then hole that the tank valve goes into. Could be a problem with the flow indictor cap leaking air. Is the top and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the plastic breaks loose and the top will rise enough that it raises the tank so water won't flow. Your pump may be bad.
