\015\012seriously call bissels help line its on the tag that has your model #
\015\012they will show you how to prime the pump and refer you somewhere if you need help locally..
\015\012
\015\012get a pin. or something similar. locate the red spray nozzles on the bottom of the machine - clear nozzles.
\015\012do the same on the spray wand. - make be clogged with soap
\015\012
\015\012basic 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.
\015\012remove 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.
\015\012
\015\012from 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..
\015\012turn 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..
\015\012
\015\012if 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

I have a bissell quickwash 1950-e. I bought it Jan. 2006, and have only used it 8-10 times, I live in a very hard water area, so I though if I put some vinegar in with the cleaning solution it would get rid of any hard water deposits, unfortunatly the solution went lumpy in the tank and stoped spraying out water, I have opened it, hose clean, sprayer not blocked, x at bottom of water container when depresed water trickles out, component that opens the x when water container placed, also ran wate

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet

Bissell will spray water when set to water rinse, but as soon as it is set to light, normal, or heavy cleaning, there is no spray. I have tried priming but to no avail. I put plain water in the solution tank to test without ay success. It is like it loses it's prime whenever you try to use a solution mix. Once you set it back to water rinse only and go through the priming steps, it is OK. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water
