Question about Bissell 1425 Little Green ProHeat Handheld Steam Vacuum
My Little Green Machine will not spray any solution. I used it about 6 weeks ago and It worked fine. I went to use it the other day and it didn't spray. The machine turns on and the heating function seems to work. I called the Bissell customer support line and I followed their instructions on cleaning and priming the lines inside. Both steps didn't solve the problem. Any ideas Thanks
Sounds like the pump is bad.how old is it.you should have at least a 1 yeay warranty on it.if still under warranty take it to a dealer that repairs bissell along with your reciept.if you don't have the reciept thats ok they will go by the serial number ,that will tell them of the warranty status

Try some after use care, namely, running clean, hot water through the line, then removing the supply tank and running until no water comes through. This will help but will not elminate the problem. In addtion to heater clogging, the pump may seize up, also.

I have had to take mine apart every time I use it. The passages in the heater get clogged with cooked soap residue and this keeps the fluid from flowing properly. The crystalized soap has also plugged the tube in the handle, and the attachments, quite a few times. I am now having trouble with water leaking out the bottom when running the cleaner. I have traced this back to the heater. It seems that the soap, or something, has eaten a couple of holes in the removable metal cove that seals the back of the heater. This is the same cover that I have had to remove quite a few times to clean the passages out. I have fixed this temporarily, but now I need to order a heater assembly, as this piece is not sold separately. I like the machine and the way it cleans, but it sure has its share of problems. Hope this helps somebody. One way I found to slow down the heater plugging up, although it still does it eventually, is to make sure I have fluid coming out the attachment before turning the heater on. It seems to cook whats in the heater less.

Same thing, will not spray. Is it possible a worn flapper valve could cause the same problem? I put it in bachward once & it didn't spray till reversed. It's in propoerly now, but it seems worn (doesn't close completely) I'm wondering what function the flapper valve in the feed tank serves.

I have the same problem. I took it apart and found that the water pump had leaked and burned out the water pump motor. It's a $20 part.
