I agree - just got done fixing 1 of these tonight. The heater plugs up and no spray. Easy Fix, the heater is in the handle and pretty easy to remove. then a straightened paper clip and a blast of air and you should be go to go.

This defintiely sounds like your belt has broken or slipped off the motor pulley. The brushes on your vacuum are driven by a belt that attaches to the motor shaft on one end, and the roller brush on the other end.
If you really do have the Bissell 6594 model that you posted this repair under, then to check your belt, simply turn the vacuum upside down, and remove the four screws from the plate that covers the brushes. The bottom plate will then lift off, and you will have access to the brush and belt area of your machine.
You'll probably notice that the belt is either split completely, or is stretched out, and fallen off the motor shaft. Even if the belt is still completely circular, it may be a good idea to go ahead and replace the belt anyway. We recommend replacing the belt on your vacuum every 6 months even if they don't break, as they don't perform nearly as well when the machine has a fresh, tight belt on it.
The model 6594 uses the Bissell Style 7,9,10, etc. belt. It's the most popular Bissell belt on the market. If you don't already have a new belt handy, here's a link to your belt on our website if you need to purchase one:
Bissell Style 7/9/10/12/14/16 Upright Vacuum Cleaner Belts (2 Pack), Part Number 32074
Here's link to the Bissell Owners Manual for your model that will walk you through step by step how to replace the belt on your machine:
