Having problems with your Vacuums ?

I have a Bissell Proheat 2X Carpet/Upholstery cleaner and I can't get the soap and water to come out of the attatchment. The vacuum part is working, but the spray isn't. I can see the fluid is trying to go up the tube but won't spray. Help. Peggy

Hello,

I have a Bissell "Little Green" cleaning machine that acted like yours. I found several clogs in the fluid system. The power for the fluid in my unit is provided by a small AC motor independent from the vacuum motor attached to a small plastic pump. This pump then fed into the input of the heater. Inside the heater is a sort-of mirror-image, redundant labyrinth that the fluid passes through before it exits. My heater was completely blocked on both sides, and exhibited signs of corrosion. My choice was to disable the heater and to instead hook its output line straight to the pump. I also found clogs in the fluid line, particularly where there were bends. One of the clogs was where the vacuum and fluid line made a right angle turn out of the base of the machine. The other was in the trigger handle itself in a jog of the small line that connects the valve to the spray nozzle connector.

I would suggest examining the trigger handle first. The only thing to watch for is the position of a small flat metal spring with a square hole in the center that lives between the trigger and the valve (which is also sprung).

I made good use of some slightly smaller standard aquarium air line so I could blow water and air through without having to actually taste the internal lines of the machine.

My new resolution is to run clean water through the fluid system before putting it to bed!

My Bissel proheat carpet cleaner wont spray out of the bottom or the spray handle. I took of the scrub brushes and off and cleaned out the bottom of the machine including popping out the two spray heads to make sure they were not clogged. Put it back together. Still no spray! I also did the turn off, remove fluid containers, replace, turn on for one minute to prime the pump, and still so spray...does this mean my pump is not working?

My Dyson DC17 has lost suction on the wand and is not picking up dirt as it should. I have taken the small part at bottom of the machine off to see if there is a blockage--none that I can see. The flexible tube on wand is very tight and won't extend very much. Dyson sent me a new cyclonic part in April but the machine still doesn't seem to be working properly. My serial number is 260-us-d11545. Is there somewhere I can take my Dyson to get it fixed. I'm very frustrated with it. Thank you.
