Having problems with your Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum ?

A solution to many "non-spray" problems.

\015 After fighting the spray nozzles for over a year, I set out to find the problem. We completely dismantled the machine, (I don't recommend this for the novice, it took 2 days to get it apart and back together) what was observed in the hoses was a gelatinous substance which smelled very nice, and reminded my wife of Scotchgard. A look on the bottle of shampoo confirmed her suspicions. It seems that this problem began when she ran out of her old bottle of shampoo, and bought a new bottle which contained the Scotchgard. We cleaned the water/shampoo system with a steam cleaner, and ran water through the entire system to make sure it worked. We then dumped the shampoo that contained the Scotchgard.She now Uses a dilute of Dawn and water, (3 parts of Water to 1 part of Dawn). It works pretty good on the carpet, but I am sure there is better. Best advice: use whatever shampoo you want, but make sure you thoroughly clean the system with water before storage. The Scotch Guard forms a white glob when it dries and plugs the nozzles.\015

Answers :

The Scotchguard is going to be dicey inside the Bissell, yes, as you have learned the hard way.

\015\012I think the Bissell and the Hoover shampoos sold for their carpet cleaning machines are reasonably safe to use in the Bissell. My own personal favorite for use with the Bissell is the Hoover Premium Pet Formula, which is pricey but effective even if you don't own pets. I also pre-treat stained areas with Resolve Carpet Cleaner, a few minutes before using the Bissell.

I posted my problem earlier today that I was having with my Bissell Little Green Machine not dispensing solution, but sucked up no problem. Someone said that the most common problem was a blockage. We put hot water in the reservoir for 15 minutes as advised and it still will not dispense. The fluid is now ''dribbling''so it is better. It is just not spraying. We are able to blow from the end and make bubbles in the reservoir which shows us it is not blocked. Any other suggestions?


Okay. I fixed this on mine. Undo the screws on the handle, right by the trigger. You pull the tubes off the little valve. Push on the button and see if you can blow through the valve. If not, push a pin around in the valve (with it pushed into the ... Bissell 1720-1 Little Green Wet/Dry Vacuum

I have a Bissell Proheat Turbo 2x model 9300. It has stopped spraying at the floor. The hand tools will work so I assume this means the problem is at the base somewhere. I cleaned the nozzles but don't know what to try next. It has always had a problem with dumping too much cleaning solution as well, don't know if this is a contributing factor

My Bissell Quicksteamer Model 1960-R won't spray cleaning solution. I have cleaned it and taken apart the whole thing. I can't find any problems. The holes are not cloged where the water comes out as I disconnected it and blew through it to be sure. The lines show water trying to go through. It is as if it doesn't have enough power to pump the water out when I squeeze the trigger. I am thinking it is the pump thing but can't find a replacement part for it.

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.

My Bissell ProHeat Pro-Clean upright cleaner won't spray either water or solution onto the floor, however it does spray when using the attachments on the hose.
