Question about Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
I just took apart my shampooer and fixed the part (crank) that turns my brush..it was completely broken. Now my problem is is that I cant get the suction part to work really well. Dont know if when I took it apart that I miscalculated and connected a wrong hose or crossed them somewhere. I have more water on my floor and it looks like the dirty water coming back onto the floor because it's not clear and clean it's brown and dingy.
Help...I know I can fix this but dont have a quide to show me which cord goes where. I know this much...very front center 3 connections hoses. I think the one that came from the right sid eof the vaccuum goes into right(common sense), but not sure on the top and left.

My Bissell had the same problem. The hand attachment does not use heated water. So I Found a clog of calcium and dirt in the heater portion of the unit. The heater is in the handle behind the red heater light on the front. Remove the upper portion of the handle. Remove the lower two screws in the lower portion and the parts will split apart. Remove the hoses and remove the heater. (mark where the wires go) The bottom of the heater can be removed with a screwdriver. The tubes leading into the heater is where the clog was but there was a lot of debris inside Make sure to clear it all and the hoses as well. I put it together and it works great.

I don't know how to advise you on this. The Bissell is pretty complicated when you take the hood off. Under there is a number of things that must be in place correctly to replace the hood. There is a small plastic "rod" with an "o" ring on it that controls the shampoo mixture and that has to be positioned right to replace the hood. You may have to take the machine to an experienced shop to have it re-assembled. I don't think I can tell you all the little things you have to do to re-assemble it yourself.
In regards to the elevator, there are two arms that lift the brush off the floor when the handle is put in the upright position. This is so the brush will rotate freely while you use the hose. These arms break quite easily and are available from any repair depot in a set.
You may be able to get a schematic diagram from a warranty service dealer. They have a special "dealer only" web site that they can access to get repair and parts info. Usually, they can e-mail or fax you information if you're really nice to them. Smile when you're on the phone. :)

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
If you have no suction, you could have a base seal in the recovery tank, there could be a clog or blockage, or check the clear tubes to see the they are crimped or pinched so that the vac is not getting any air, or start from the bottom and work your way up to where you do get suction and you should find the problem, a lot of times it is a gasket or the recovery tank is not on there securely or you may have a broken part that needs replacement. So feel free to check with the local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area in the yellow pages under vacuums, check the trouble shooting section to your owner’s manual or call the factory or check the website and maybe down load or have them mail out a owner’s manual.

First check that the top cover on the back side hasn't come loose. Sometimes the plastic around the screws break away and the top starts to separate, raising the tank, and no spray. Make sure that the gaket is on the valve at the bottom of the tank and not sitting loose in the hole. Check the pump belt. The pump may be bad.

- Remove the tool from the end of the hose and see if the hose will spray. If there is spray with the tool removed, the tool is clogged. Clean out the spray tip of the tool with a safety pin or paper clip.
- Stretch the hose out and give it a few light tugs to release any kinks in the internal water supply hose.
If there is still no spray through the hose, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center.
