Bissell Proheat 2x rug cleaner won't spray


Some Youtube videos recommend unclogging the heater unit (grey) but on mine air flows from the inlet to outlet.

My attention then switched to what appears to be a solenoid valve (center top) as well as the 2 vacuum lines that attach to the top and rear of the pump (top right). If I draw air from the top one something like a piston moves up/down in the white tower. If I draw or inject air into the bottom one I just hear a hissing sound from the small box in the red circle top-right. I thought this might be a relay to enable the pump to run when the vacuum motor is running.

Everything was running fine until (naturally) my sister-in-law needed it back, at which point it stopped spraying.
I'm thinking it's time to upgrade to a 2022 model unless there is an under-$25 fix I can do here.

Can't tell what that thing is that hisses.
A model number would be helpful.

That long white thing is an electric pump. You need to see if that's running.

Model 1383C

I took a closer look at those 2 vacuum lines.

The one that goes to the base of the motor just opens into the housing so it looks like it just cools the DC motor or sucks up any fluid that might collect there.

So, it could be the solenoid, the pump or the bridge rectifier and has nothing to do with the 2 vacuum lines.

I'm going to reassemble and check for a spark at the pump motor, in which case I might just try replacing the solenoid.
