If your floor cleaner doesn't spray, chances are the heater unit is clogged. It is easy to fix if you have a few simple tools and are mechanically inclined.

\015\012Steps to fix:
\015\012
\015\012- The heater unit is located inside the body of the machine, behind the power/heater switches. Remove 6 screws and split the case open.
\015\012- The silver metal "box" inside is the heater unit. Take note of how the hoses and wires are connected. Better yet, take a digital photo for reference.
\015\012- Remove the wires and hoses.
\015\012- Take the box to a work bench, and unscrew the 6 or 7 screws that hold on the lid. Don't lose the red washers that are found on the inside of the box that keep water from leaking out of the screw holes
\015\012- You'll see a "maze" where the water runs around to get heated up. Clear this of all debris. The inlet and/or outlet ports may also be clogged. I used an appropriate sized drill bit mounted on an electric screwdriver to carefully "drill" out the clogs. Make sure all the debris has been removed. I used an electric screwdriver because my 18v DeWalt hammer drill would have been overkill :)
\015\012- Reassemble to box
\015\012- Rewire and plumb the box according to your notes or reference photo.
\015\012- Put the machine back together.
\015\012
\015\012Doing this saved me a $85 repair and took 30 minutes. My machine now works perfectly.
Very simple solution for me. Have you checked the thin tube, ~ 4-5 inches long, attached to the seal/lid for the little formula tank (goes into the tank after refill, as you're closing the lid back up)? Mine is no longer below the formula level once the formula tank is about 3/4 full or less AS USED, meaning secured on the machine. I simply snipped off the tube to about 1 inch long, and voila, it's below the formula level and able to **** it up/out until the tank is about 1/4 full, at which point it's time for a refill anyway.

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x cleaner which has worked perfectly on every occasion. Today I filled the machine as usual with water and formula and switched on, the motor ran, the lights were on and the brushes rotated but upon pressing the spray trigger no water or formula was released. I have cleaned the jets underneath and also followed instructions to release any airlock. It still wont release the water/formula. What else can I do? Thanks Charles
