If that does not fix it do this:

25A3 Bissell Carpet Cleaner procedure to clear no floor spray trouble when hand tool spray is good.

Tools: goggles, 2P Phillips screwdriver with minimum 6 inch length, small flat blade screwdriver, 2 small containers, small pliers.

Step 1: unplug cleaner, remove water tank, remove handle by removing 2 marked screws,
remove lower body cover by removing 7 screws including the one for the upper cord wrap.

Step 2: remove valve, top of lower body, by sliding toward you. Release clamp on black hose
by releasing tension and sliding to the left. Using some heat, i.e. from hair dryer, disconnect
black hose from valve.

Step 3: Install water tank with clean water , plug in cleaner, using a small container to catch
water from disconnected valve, turn on power switch and operate valve by pressing down
to verify water discharges OK.

Step 4: Disconnect power, remove water tank, use a small compressor (tire pump) with a
tapered adapter, apply air pressure to open end of black hose and air should clear congealed
soap and water from floor spray tips.

Step 5: If air only clears one spray tip, take small flat screwdriver and place between aperture
and deflection tab on cleared spray tip and press blade against it’s aperture. This should
clear the other spray tip.

Step 6: Reconnect black hose to valve and reclamp. Plug in cleaner and install tank with clean water. Test to make sure both floor spray tips are working and connections at valve are
not leaking.

Step 7: Unplug cleaner, remove tank, reinstall lower body cover and handle. Make sure clean water is flushed through system after each use as directed in owner’s manual. The floor spray
tips have very small apertures and will clog easily, possibly not a good design.
