The heater is blocked wih lime scale
Posted on Nov 13, 2007
These units have a heater which could be lime scale.
seriously call bissels help line its on the tag that has your model #
they will show you how to prime the pump and refer you somewhere if you need help locally..
get a pin. or something similar. locate the red spray nozzles on the bottom of the machine - clear nozzles.
do the same on the spray wand. - make be clogged with soap
basic prime is easy.. use the wand. place the machine on something like a workbench.. fill the bladder on tank hot water no soap. assure the bladder doesn't leak and the tank has the rubber piece on the bottom and that if you push it in it releases water.. if it doesn't soak it in hot water. if it doesn't have one get one.. it would likely just leak onto the floor without. install tank without the main lid on.
remove any tool that may be hooked to wand. hold the wand lower than the machine - gravity right. hold spray but and turn on machine. if it sprays without the tool clean your tools.
from the floor and the red spinner... remove the cap for the spinner. remove the spinner and the screen.. pour hot water into the opening... caution it may go through to the floor... if it does the nozzle is clear and your machine may just need to be primed..
turn on machine and hold trigger on main handle. it should have water some to the open cap.. if not then maybe check to see it will spray from the wand and don;t skip steps... if it can spray from the wand and not to the floor and everything else has passed then try remove and reinstall the main handle.. yeah you put in on when you got it.. remove it.. underneath the handle is a square button.. the upper just pushed it anyhow so try pushing it or just reinstall the handle as firmly as you can.. should have tension on trigger..
if none of those work then it may be lime scale... lastly.. wondering about why the machine is so loud without the lid on the tank and why I told you to take it off.... well the tank could be warped or something may be holding the tank from connecting to the machine.. if it sprays without the lid but not with the lid on.. remove and reinstall the clearview cover.. its likely on wrong or you may have a warped tank
