My Bissell Little Green Won't Spray

The Bissell Little Green is a small, deep-cleaning machine that steams the floor to loosen dirt and debris on it before it sucks it up through the same hose. Sometimes, however, your machine can get clogged or may not be put together properly. This can cause it to have a reduced spray or no spray at all. Always check to see if your warranty is still in effect. If it is, contact the Bissell Company to repair your machine or to pay for repairs.

Step 1

Turn the machine off and unplug it.

Step 2

Remove the spray nozzle by depressing the tabs on either side of the base of the nozzle and pulling it from the hose.

Step 3

Rinse the spray nozzle under clear water to remove any dirt or debris that could be clogging the nozzle.

Step 4

Remove the solution tank by pulling the handle toward you and tilting it out of the machine. The solution tank is the translucent green tank on the right of the machine.

Step 5

Pour the solution into a bowl and rinse out the tank to remove clogs in the outlet on the bottom of the machine. The machine won't spray if the outlet is clogged.

Step 6

Put the solution back into the tank and place it back into the machine.

Step 7

Plug the machine in and turn it on.

Step 8

Push firmly on the front of the solution tank and simultaneously depress the spray trigger. This primes the pump so you can begin spraying.
