Having problems with your Bissell Vacuums ?

My Bissell ProHeat Pet Carpet Cleaner will not spray water. Can you help me troubleshoot this problem?

Another common issue with these cleaners is one you may not think of: A solenoid valve. If you follow WaterdownRob's instructions and do not have any water coming out of those hoses, but, have water coming out of the attachments, then the electric solenoid valve to the carpet hoses is at fault in the unit. This valve is controlled by the handle switch only and located in the base of the cleaner. In order to access it, you must remove the rear plastic motor cover (5 screws - 3 in rear, 2 in the base), remove the suction tower (1 screw, gasket, and 2 hoses - mark where they were), a solenoid tower (2 screws, and detach only the second hose in from the outer side of the cleaner - this is the water feeder hose to the mixing chamber. Detach it by pinching the hose retainer clip with a pair of pliers), the front brush guard (1 screw in front), and, finally, the base itself (6 screws with 2 in the rear and 4 in the base area where the water tank goes). Lift the base cover carefully for this is where normally the heater, wiring, and several hoses are located. This also holds the wheels and handle guides in place. Make sure not to lose them. If detached properly, you should be able to lift the cover like a hood from the front toward the rear of the base and may have to pull out the water feeder hose. the solenoid in question is the one you'll see with a "T" link (from the heater), short hose running into one side, and, a hose running to another "T" link to the carpet nozzles on the other side. If original, this solenoid is usually blue. If after market, it's usually brown. You can find it on eBay by searching for "Bissell Solenoid Valve," or "Bissell Pro Heat 2X Solenoid valve," and they range in price anywhere from $7.00 to as much as $17.00. This is the most common part to fail in these units and an aftermarket is recommended. You can remove the old one by detaching the 2 hoses by pinching the retainer clips and unplugging the 2 wires. When you have your replacement, simply reverse the process and reassemble the cleaner.

My carpet cleaner (bissell proheat plus) is not steaming, dispensing cleaner. Seems like there's a little thingy that should be spinning or turning..... When I work a small area of carpet, it just leaves behind dry blobs of carpet gunk like pet hair. I had to use a carpet sweeper to clean up. FYI - I filled the cleaning fluid container and after trying to clean the carpet, it did empty out but the carpet isn't wet. Any tips? The manual doesn't help.
