Check your filters. One on Water Tank Cap (looks like a screen) the other under the Flow Indicator. Turn the Flow Indicator cap counter-clockwise and remove it. Lift out the rotor and under it is the filter. Clean the filter and reinstall in reverse order. If that didn't work the contact Bissell Consumer Care at 1-800-237-7691 Hope that helped.
yes it is sold separate. its called the divertor and can be purchased from bissell or one of there dealers. hope this helps. if you need assistance with the installation i would love to help after purchasing the part.

Common problem with most Bissell Carpet Cleaners is that it stops ... to no one repeats my mistake, this is NOT the Bissel Proheat 2x Turbo Model .... water go back to use 8 months later and now it only sprays water ... I can't understand ANYTHING said to me by the Bissell reps in India or .... Get video URL.
The problem was a clogged heating unit which is located in the lower handle. There are two clear hoses going up the inside of the left leg of the lower handle that go to the heater and to the in-line water switch all within the lower handle. I unplugged the metal heating unit water lines and electrical connections (label the connections as you take them apart if you have a hard time remembering things...there were seven connection in all be it water and/or electrical). Removed the heat unit out and then removed the 6 screws holding the heater cover. Inside was a white powdery pasty debris (lime deposit ?) and the water path was clearly blocked in four different places. I cleansed the water trough with a little water and soft toothbrush and several toothpicks then reassembled. If you need new washers go to Orchard or ACE hardware. Take the old rubber washers(they are red) with you for comparison. I didn't need new washers...I just gently cleansed them. I immediately ran clear water through the machine and actually cleaned the carpet with a water rinse only. Will go back and finish the carpet the right way tomorrow. I had only used my machine three times before this happend over a three year period. A friend told me to always rinse it two maybe three times with clear water after using it and before storage. This took me exactly 42 minutes to disassembly and reassemble. Cost savings is several hundred dollars since I have a 5 bdrm house and would need a professional cleaner to do the small dirty traffic lanes all around the house.
