I've owned my Bissell for over 5 years now & LOVE it! Even after vacuuming It pulls up tons of dog hair I never realized was there! I am having a similar problem, but I caused it myself & think maybe you may have the same problem, cross your fingers & hope you do cuz the fix is CHEAP! (Shipping will cost more than the part!
\015\012When I replaced my belts, instead of following the manual instructions, I did what I thought made sense and removed the roller from the bottom. In doing so, I snapped a small red plastic roller arm pin/clamp. I glued it back together & replaced it & it worked fine for about 10 minutes then the roller stopped, sure enough the glue didn't hold. I'm just trying to find the parts. It's part # 555-9113, that fits ALL Pro Heat models. I have tried finding them at all the hardware stores & Vaccum shops, but no one carries them. I saw them on a few web sites priced from $1.99 to $3. Now I just have to find the site again!
\015\012I don't know if this will help you, but it might be just what you need, NOT the pump like you think.
\015\012All the piece does is puts enough tension on the roller and keeps it in place and holds the lower belt in place. If the roller slips it won't turn even with a good belt!
That is something you would have to take up with Bissell. There is however no recall on the pump. They did change the pulley to a metal one. I know that if too much stuff coming off your carpet, or pet hair, will clog up the belt and pulley putting undo stress on the parts and can cause damage. Needs to be cleaned out once in a while.

I have a Bissell Model 8905 Carpet Cleaner. I was going to replace the belts because the pump belt broke, but when I turned the machine over, a small piece fell out. It looks like a tensioner arm because it has a small round part at each end on opposite sides of an arm that has an offset or "dogleg" in it. I am looking for an exploded parts diagram to determine what the part is and where it came from.

I have two old identical 5842's that I use in the garage and around the house. The belt broke on one so I bought a bag of 2 genuine Eurika "U" belts, which is the correct belt for this vacuum. They were obviously smaller than the original belt because they were not stretched out. When I put the new belt on it lasted about 20 minutes and then came off. I put it back on and ran the vacuum with the cover off to see what was wrong. Everything looked fine except the belt rides to the outside edge of

I replaced the belt on my Dirt Devil Featherlite Bagless Vacuum and the brush roller rubs and makes a very loud noise when turned on. I have gone exactly by the manual instructions and made sure the belt and end caps were on correctly, but the bristles still rub the back and it makes a very loud noise. Without the brush roller in the vacuum, it sounds and runs normal. What could the problem be?

Bissell Powersteamer 1694W won't extract water from carpet. Was extracting fine until the pump/brush belt gear broke off off the pump. I repaired the gear with super glue and the brush is once again working fine. I now have an extraction problem. What did I do wrong? I took it apart and was so proud of myself when I fixed the original problem. Now I'm lost.

On several occasions the belt has come off the Hoover Windtunnel beater shaft and had to be re-installed. Is there any way to prevent it from slipping off? The shaft seems to be made so that the middle if it is wider(thicker than either the end or the part closer to the motor, which, to me, is a bad design so I don't know how to overcome this problem.

Hi my proheat bissell 7901 stopped pumping water to the floor, but it pumps water from the hand hose. I read the manual and followed how to check belt and the flat belt on right side of shampooer is fine and I turned on and it turns and so do the brushes at the bottom of the machine. I was reading online and I guess there's two belts on this machine? where can I find the other belt to see if it needs replacing. I guess it's a ribbed belt? that is the water pump belt?

The original belt on my upright Kenmore Progressive broke and I replaced it with the spare that was in the vacuum. The vacuum and spare belt are about 10 years old. Then the spare broke after one vacuuming session and there was a burning smell coming from the vacuum. I ordered new belts and replaced it with the new belt. It seems to be working fine with no smell. I checked the belt after I vacuumed the family room and although it was in tact, the belt was very hot. Is that normal? Should t

I have a Flotec shallow well FP4122-08. A burglar stood on the pump this summer to gain access to my goats building (window). There's a small black tube that came off at both ends. When I put the tube back on, it shoots right back off as soon as the pump is plugged in. I don't know the name of the part (tube) to order a new one, and I don't know if it just plugs onto the fittings of both ends, or goes into the pump at the end with the round fitting on it.

We are trying to replace the belt on the bissell 89q9 model. We purchased belt 8 and got in onto the brush however the brush doesn't spin anymore. Even trying to turn it by hand doesn't work. One end of the brush has a round end to slide in (clear end piece); however the other has a rectangular end to slide in (black end) so we don't even know how it ever turned. Any suggestions?

I have a Hoover Windtunnel U5472-940. The belt broke so I replaced it. Immediately the next one broke. The belt goes around the brush cylinder and a metal post. I think there is supposed to be something on the metal post to protect the belt but I can't tell from the owner's manual. I also can't find out if this is a part that can be replaced. I've only had the vacuum about a year and a half. Thanks

The belt on my used Eureka Boss 5857 upright slips off the end of the motor shaft every time the vacuum is used. When I turn the brush roll slowly by hand, the belt walks toward the end of the shaft. It looks like there was a plastic projection from the base that snapped off, and maybe that plastic piece used to block the belt from falling off. Do I need to try to reconstruct that plastic piece, or is something else wrong?
