The problem turned out to be in the lower panel of the\015\012handle (4 screws to remove). The heater is a large block of aluminum\015\012with a stainless cover held on by screws. The lower nozzle of the\015\012heater was blocked by water/soap reacting with the aluminum while in\015\012storage. Blowing out the lines as recommended with air compressor just\015\012warped the stainless cover resulting in time spent flattening this back\015\012into shape.

I would recommend the following steps:
1. Make sure that fluid levels are up in both the supply water bladder and the soap dispenser.
\015\0122. Pry off the left side access cover and ensure the pump drive belt is\015\012still in position. Switch the unit on and see that the pump is\015\012spinning.
3. With the unit plugged in and the handle laying flat\015\012on the floor (using the foot release lever) , remove the clear bezzel\015\012over the red impeller, switch the unit on, and pull the trigger for\015\012soap. Liquid stream should shoot straight up past the impeller. If not\015\012the lines are plugged somewhere.
4. Unplug the electric power. Remove the four screws and remove the lower handle access cover (with the red light in it).
5. All the fluid lines are clear plastic so you can identify which have fluid movement.
\015\0126. Disconnect the line from the soap activation switch (pliers on the\015\012squeeze hose clamp) feeding the heater (large aluminum block). Blow air\015\012(with your mouth NOT the air compressor) into this line and see if\015\012fluid movement is observed in the clear plastic lines. A little\015\012tentative about soap in your mouth, use a turkey baster filled with\015\012water). I saw no movement of liquid. Nozzle exiting the heater blocked.
\015\0127. Remove this hose and use a small drill bit to twist the debris\015\012loose. You may elect to remove the heater shinny cover for better\015\012access. Gaskets are reusable. Blow thru the hoses again to assure\015\012blockage cleared.
8. Button unit up.
9. With the clear bezel\015\012off and the red rotor exposed, plug unit in, soap and water supplies in\015\012place, switch on power and pull soap trigger. Should see vertical\015\012stream. Mine was about 5 inches initially then jumped to about 10\015\012inches high. Knew blockage was cleared.
10. During shampoo\015\012operation if soap stops (red impeller stops spinning) first check fluid\015\012levels and fill. That doesn't work, I unscrewed the clear bezel and\015\012pulled the soap trigger with the unit switched on. Less than a second\015\012vertical stream appeared every time.
11. Now you know how to fix and achieve continuous operation.
\015\01212. The unit must be thorougly cleaned before putting it away for\015\012storage to prevent the reoccurance of the blockage in the heater. After\015\012following the manufacturer's instructions, by flushing (operating the\015\012unit) with clear water in the bladder and the soap dispenser, I did one\015\012final thing. By removing the fresh water storage/collection plastic\015\012container, a black round fitting is exposed that channels the water\015\012from the bladder into the spray system. I used a length of automotive\015\012heater hose that was the same diameter as the seal on this fitting\015\012(turkey baster with bulb off will work) and blew hard while the unit\015\012was switched on and the clear bezel was off. One last big blast of\015\012water spewed from the unit. This cleared all the lines from the bladder\015\012through the pump, switch, and heater and blows it out just prior to the\015\012spray nozzles.

This is long but specific.

Not so technical, take each step as presented.

Good luck.

Main causes for no spray.
\015\012
\015\012Bladder may be empty.
\015\012SmartMix Bottle may be empty.
\015\012The Filter may be clogged.
\015\012Tanks may not be seated properly.
\015\012Pump may have lost prime.
\015\012The Pump Belt may be broken.
\015\012
\015\012This sounds as though the pump belt may be slipping. This may be caused because the pump belt has stretched slightly or the pump is seized and will not turn. Remove the pump belt and turn the pump rotor with your fingers to see it turns freely. If it does then the pump should be OK but the belt may be stretched and will need replacing. If the unit does not spray after changing the belt then clean the spray nozzles at the front of the machine and make sure that water flows to the nozzles OK. You can check this by temporarily disconnecting the nozzles from the plastic pipes.

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the hose that goes to the flow indicator, blew in it and it started spinning. Put the deep cleaner back together, tried to use it and nothing. What else can we try? Can't afford to put it in the shop right now. Thanks in advance.

We have a Bissell Proheat Cleanshot 2X Model 9500 Steam carpet cleaner. The first time we used it things were great. The second time we used it it left tracks in the carpet. We have no idea what caused this. We tried using the machine on an entirely different carpet and it did the same thing. After vacuuming the carpet about 10 or 12 times, the tracks are still embedded in the carpet - HELP!!!! We're read and reread the manual and contacted customer service and received no help.


First things first. It's only the second time you have used the machine, so it must be fairly new. If you have a receipt and the unit is less than a year old you should take it to an authorized Bissell repair center and have the machine inspected und ... Vacuums
