First, check to make sure the clean tank has water and/or the water & formula mixture in the tank. If your tank is empty, this could be the reason your machine is not spraying. You will need to fill your clean tank again. Reseat the tank and ensure it sits snug on the machine.
Should the brush not rotate freely there may be debris tangled around the ends of the brush, carefully remove any obstructions or replace the brush with a new one. We recommend that you fit a new belt and brush once per year to keep your Reactive vacuum working efficiently.

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
ANSWER : Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn’t blocked as well.

Have a Bissell Proheat2 will not spray water from the carpet power head but sprays from tools setting Does anyone know how to get water to spray or clean out water
ANSWER : I had this problem. It was small pieces of debris that got into the solution lines and clogged all the nozzles. There is a nozzle for the handheld attachments, one on the front of the machine for spraying spots and two nozzles underneath just behind the rotating brushes.
.
.It was a royal pain disconnecting the clear rubber hoses inside the machine and blowing out the nozzles and the hoses with compressed air. If you are mechanically challenged I’d suggest you take the machine to a vacuum/steam cleaner repair facility.
.
.I’m not sure how the debris got into the solution system, but it may have been when the dirty water tank was emptied some of the dirty water entered the internal, clean water bladder.
.
.A note to Bissell engineers: This issue can be prevented if you simply add an easily accessable solution and/or water filter that the customers can remove, clean and reinstall. Just a suggestion.

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
ANSWER : Hard to say what is causing your problem, replacing the cap and insert on the water tank may help, part #2041111, even tho it may trickle out water when depressed, they can still be bad. The other thing would be the rod not relesing the water like it should. The big draw back to this model is Bissell has obsoleted all of its parts and most are no longer available. Might be wiser to buy new.
