My Bissell Proheat Clearview Force isn't producing steam. The water isn't coming out of the tank


Either an electrical connection to the heater element is broken, or the element itself has become malfunctional. You'd have to dis-assemble the machine to inspect what exactly is the problem, then replace any non-functioning parts.

The ribbed belt for the brush broke. When we got


According to the schematics from Bissell on this machine, the "gear" ribbed belt goes between the pump and the brush roller. Tension is provided by the pump. The retainer clip is part of the pump assembly and Bissell only sells the entire pump, part # B-010-7185 PUMP, PROHEAT SERIES UPRIGHTS. We can special order the part at a cost of $34.95, www.govacuum.com We have live chat or you can call 888-468-2210 option # 2. You may also want to make sure the pump sits tight in the machine.

Nobody seems to be able to answer the question on how to change the belt on a bissell steam cleaner ..... Bissell is horrible for never giving customers proper instruction manuels .... THUMBS DOWN FOR...


i have the same prob. this is what i found


Since changing the belt is the easiest fix, we suggest you check that first. (Before attempting any repair be sure your machine is unplugged from the electrical outlet). Most Proheat models have two belts; a cogged belt that turns the brush roll, and a flat belt that turns the pump. If the pump belt is stretched or broken it needs to be replaced. The pump and belts are located in the front of the machine on the operator’s left. Turn the machine over and you’ll see a red retainer with 2 screws. Remove the retainer to gain access to the pump and belts. While you’re there check the red pump pulley, it’s where the two belts are. If that pulley is broken or loose you’ll have to replace the whole pump, the pulley is not available separate.

on your housing you will see a plastic cover adout 4 inches long remove this piece and you should see where your pump belt goes. flip your steamer over and remove the little red retainer that sits by the belt you have located. at this point you can take your brushroll out and slip the pump belt over the pump and onto your motor. then reassemble.

Where can I get a hard copy of manual for Bisell 7920 ProHeatr


Try bissell.com, part number for the owner manual is 2105811. It has 2 belts, one for the pump and a cogged belt for the brush roll. Take off the belt cover on the left side and you can see the flat pump belt, if it looks ok, then turn unit over, remove the red arm retainer, has one screw, then the you can pull the arm loose and off, the cogged belt is there. If not broke, then look at the end of the pump, it is a double pulley, the inner one is for the flat belt, the outer one has a cogged pulley, the cogs may be worn down, or it has broken off, in which case you will have to replace the pump, the pulley comes only with the pump.

Re-assembly after belt replacement


The small red clip has a tab on it to hold in place while putting back on. put the screw in the hole in clip and use tab to guide into place. if there is no tab, then you need to obtain a new set of clips, very inexpensive. the laege red clip is easy to put on since it goes into a groove and can't go on backward.

I took off the brush roller to clean it and now I can't get the roller to work unless the machine is standing upright. The side that's not connected to the belt keeps falling out.


The solution for your situation is as follows: You need to put the retraining clips on over the arms to properly put them in place You most likely put the retaining clips on too early.

Bissell 7950 ProHeat Self Propelled Carpet cleaner Replacement Pump Belt part 215-0628


Normally, there is a post sticking out of the retainer to remove it. If the post is broken off, then you will have to lift the black arm and wiggle it at the same time and the retainer will pop up so you can remove it. On the belt side, the retainer is fairly large and you can usually get a hold of it with a pair of needle nose pliers. On the other side, the retainer is small and you can lift it out with the pliers by griping it gently using the hole that the screw goes through.

Dirtlifter Powerbrush does not turn


Make the machine safe from the power source first
When you remove the belt access door you are looking at the pump belt,
To gain access to the brush belt you must turn the machine over and remove the brush at the bottom of the machine.
there are two screw in the red retainers at each side of the brush, remove the screws and the retainers and the pivot arms ,you should see the brush belt and the pump
