Having problems with your Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

The unit does not put any watter on the carpet and when I push the triger the red spinner does not move. The tank is full of hot watter


Answers :

Hello,

This sounds like your pump brush belt is broken in your Bissell. The belt controls the pump in the machine, as well as the brushes. This would be explain why the solution is not spraying, as well as why the red spinner on the top of the machine is also not spinning.

Here's an extremely helpful video that you can watch on how to replace the belt on your Bissell ProHeat Carpet Cleaner.

If you open up the door and find that your belt is not broken, please just reply using the Clarification Request form here on the Fixya website, and I'll be more then happy to do some advanced diagnosing with you to figure out what the problem is.

Hi, I've a Tefal Steam Generator Express Turbo 2910. It won't "steam". The solenoid works when the button is pressed. The pump works. I've cleaned the tank (with white vinegar as recommended on this site!) thoroughly. The water from the steam tank is only "hot" (not scalding as I'd expect it to be). When first switched on and hot enough there is the TINIEST whiff of steam when the button is pressed then nothing more. Do you think this could be the Thermostat Part CS00094126, or can you

I have a Bissell Proheat 2x Model 9200. The solution goes directly through to the carpet. The tank empties extremely fast even when I am not pushing the button. I have also noticed that I have soap spots on the carpet when pushing the cleaner forward. These spots are not even associated with the cleaning mechanism. I have inspected the cap on the tank, but it seems to be OK. Any suggestions?

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will still not pick up the used water. I found a tear in the interior hose leading to the receiving tank and repaired throughly with electrical tape. Still will not pick up the water. Any suggestions?

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water
