Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the
heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up
to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at
the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole.
The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had
the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not
to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should
be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the
smart mix know. Pump is bad.

What do i do if my jets are not working on my windsor commordore 20

You should be able to take off the jet nozzles and clean them out. You may need a socket wrench possibly to get them out or they may be a quick connect kind that only take a quarter turn to remove the jet from it's holder. I would also suggest running a vinegar/water solution through the system to help clean any chemical residue out of the lines. Put a couple of gallons of hot water in the solution tank with a couple of cups of white vinegar and then plug the unit in and press the solution button and let the solution run for a minute or so and then let it sit over night if you can. Then push the solution button again the nest day and let it run for another minute or so and then drain the vinegar/water solution and put in fresh hot water and run it through for several minutes. Also, soak the jets in some of the vinegar/water solution over night as well and do all of the running of the water with the jets off so that you do not clog them up further. Hope this helps.

How do I get the jets to work, I think they are clogged in the line

Your extractor is equipped with two quick change jets. They require a quarter turn (push in and turn counterclockwise) to remove. Remember to never use any metal tools to clean the jets (pin, scraper, razor etc.). If you are not able to pump solution with the jets removed, there may be a problem with your pump or solenoid. If you can hear the pump building pressure, but solution is not escaping your jet bodies, your solenoid may not be opening to allow the solution to flow. You should be able to hear the solenoid opening and closing (click). You may need to disable the vacuum motor to hear this happen. Be sure not to leave any solution in your tanks when storing. Especially high PH (alkaline) detergents. They will corrode and cause problems. I have included service manual for your machine in case you need part #'s or reference to where your parts are located.

Twice a month, flush a white vinegar solution (One
quart vinegar to two gallons of water) or anti-browning
solution (mixed as directed) through the extractor. This
will prevent build-up of alkaline residue in the system. If
spray jets become clogged, remove the spray tips,
wash them thoroughly, and blow dry.
NOTE: Do not use pins, wire, etc. to clean nozzles as
this could destroy spray pattern.

I have a bissel pro heat 2x and it wont spray

I love these and have 2 of them! The warrantees are usually good and it is your pump if both the hand held and carpet positions won't spray water. Both the soap tank and water resevoir need to have at the very least water in both for the unit to work. Yes... You can use just hot water for light cleaning in both. The pump controls both the spraying water and suction. Last, if one or the other won't spray, the unit can have residue blockage. The passages are narrow, check to see if they are clean. Last test. Turn it on, release the handle. At the base of the neck there will be an oval shaped opening. With the handle on the floor as if filling the unit with water...put either your hand or a paper plate over the hole to see if there is suction. If the pump is good, you will feel a lot of suction against your hand or the flat surface of the plate.

Water flowing out bottom of steamcleaner

It sounds like one of the internal tubes is loose or has a leak. You'll need to open up the black plate (the plate where you place the water tank on top of). Inside there, you'll be able to see all the tubes and hopefully track down which one is leaking or loose. Some of the tubes have clips to hold them in place. Perhaps one of those came loose.

Water wont spray out of bottom carpet cleaner but will out of the scrubbing hose

First try putting in a little hot water in the water resevoir , let sit for about about 5 mins. then try it. if this doesn't work, flip the machine over and locate the spray jets on the bottom. You'll need a pin or something small enough to clean out the jets bye sticking pin or paperclip in it . Detegent left in the machine sometimes cloggs the jets.Empty water before you flip the machine over.
