Question about Bissell Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a Bissell Proheat model 7901. When I pull the trigger on the handle, there is no water flow. The brushe revolves and the unit vacuums any water spilled on the floor. Could it be a failed pump or kink hose or ? Thanks Zap

New replacement pump on Bissell ProHeat Protech not working


Not sure if I have the same model but this is what I found on mine this morning - wire to switch in the handle came off. Un-plug power cord. Unscrew top two screws on upright handle and remove the front cover above the trigger. see if wires are connected. top connector is not used - if you do solution will spray all the time. Good luck!

Bissell Proheat only sprays for a few seconds.


When was the last time you changed the flat belt? Even if it isn't broken it could be so stretched out that when the brush hits the floor it slows or stops the pump from spraying. If its a new belt then and your sure there arent any clog's that usually means the pump is bad. Also if youve ever used anything other than bissell shampoo in the machine it could have ruined the pump as well.

How do I work this dam thing?????

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Bissell has a holding tank to the solution and the recovery tank for the water and soap you pick up -- -both are removable for cleaning purposes – there is a trigger assm on the handle to release the Bissell Soap or detergent that you are using – (low sudsing) and there should be a switch on the bottom of the unit to activate the revolving brushes. So the best way to shampoo the rug is to do it on the back pull – when you pull back you are dispensing the water solution and shampoo by squeezing the trigger assm, the brushes are agitating the carpet and the vacuum part is picking up the water. This is about as simple as I can get it – please refer to the owners manual for the trouble shooting part of the manual or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area and in the yellow pages under vacuums, or call the Bissell factory phone # or use the website.

Will water squirt out the hose? If it does then the heater in the handle may be clogged and not allowing water to flow. The heater is in the handle. There are a number of things that can cause your problem. If no clogged heater and lines, and no water from the hose, then the pump or pump belt maybe bad, the cap for the flow indictor is leaking air and not sealing, the gasket at the bottom of the tank isn't on the tank, either missing or sitting in the hole in the base where the tank sits.

No water spray


Does water shot from the hose when you depress the trigger? If it does, then the heater in the handle may be clogged and will have to cleaned out or replaced. If no water squirts out the hose, then check the bottom of the bucket, make sure the gasket or seal is on the auto-load on the bottom of the bucket and not in the hole. The red flow indicator cap may be loose or leaking air. Could have a clogged or pinched water line under the top housing.
