Question about Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
The rounded red plastic spindle is still in place on the pump assembly, but the metal extension that provides drive for the toothed belt that moves the brushes came out of the end.
Apparently hair and carpet fiber wedged itself between the two pieces and litterally pushed the two pieces apart. New pump assemblies in pictures appear to be one piece and all red plastic.
Is this a factory fix for a design problem, and how do I proceed? Is mine the newer style or the older style pump?
I can glue it back in with super glue I suppose, but it should be in warranty still. I would have to take it to another city for warranty repairs.
I believe the pump assembly can be replaced it is a15 dollar part.that is what works the brushes. Ijust took mine apart and looked at it the end snapped off.

Tips for a great answer:
I am sorry to hear your canister is not fitting properly. You may want to separate your cyclone assembly (the top purple portion of your canister) from the
clear bin and reattach the components to ensure they are fitted together properly.
To do this, open the bottom of the clear bin, as if you were
emptying it. Please be sure the bin is positioned over a trash receptacle in the event there is debris in the bin. Once the bottom of the bin is open please look at the back of your canister. Below the purple top of the canister and to the left of the debris
inlet is a clear plastic loop that you can slip your index finger through. Just
above this loop is a gray release catch . Using your thumb, press down on the
gray release mechanism. At this point you should be able to gently pull the
clear bin away from the cyclone assembly. After separating the pieces, briefly
inspect them to confirm they are not damaged. If there is no obvious damage,
close the base of the clear bin and place the bin on a hard flat surface. Next,
carefully lower the cyclone assembly onto the clear bin. It may be helpful to
use the red plastic piece on the back of your cyclone assembly and clear bin to
line the pieces up correctly. You will hear a slight click once the pieces have
been successfully reattached.
Please attempt to return the canister to the
machine. If you are still not able to attach the canister successfully, please
call us so we can provide further assistance. We can be reached at 1-866-693-9766 (US), 0800 298
