Water doesn't come out my Bissel rug cleaner model 7901

When I turn on the cleaner the brushes rotate but when I pull the water trigger nothing happens. Water doen't come out the bottom of it, and when you hook the hose up water doesn't come out of it either. What can I do?

The flat belt on you machine has an access panel to it from the side of the machine. That belt runs the pump if it is broken or came off the machine won't pump.

Check to make sure both of the red/black circular rubber gaskets on either solution or recovery tank are on the tanks and not stuck down inside the inlet valves on the machine itself.

Make sure there is fluid in both tanks. Without fluid in both tanks the pump loses prime and will not work.

If all that checks out then you are down replacing the pump, but usually when the pump goes out, you will have a short burst of water when you first turn it on and then it stops working.

Hope that helps you out-Good Luck

Hey Anne! Once you remove the water tank from the machine, grasp the gray handle, turn it from the curved end to the flat end of the tank, and lift upwards.

Bissell 7901-1 Cable that turns brush ripped. Where can I get a new one and how do I replace. Also when I turn to the high trafficsetting fluid doesn't spray out but it does on water only. Spinny...


If I'm understanding your question concerning cable/belt ,you can go to a bissel parts supplyer on line and order what you need ther are two bels that are envolved inthat area. The one that turs the brush is the belt with the teeth/cogs on it. To replace it there is an accesess door on the right hand side,using a screwdriver gently pry up on the door,which will expose the belt area .The belt that you are replaceing will attach on the brush then strech it to the point of the motor shaft, since one belt remains it's a simple prosses of elimination.the rest of your question is some what envolved I've requested info about the same area. So you might want to keep a look out for the answer tohow realign smartmix valve
Hope this helps.
