Bissell Pro-Heat 7901-1 no cleaning solution is pumped out. The flow indicator is spinning and the belt is spinning the beater bar. Have cleaned the flow indicator, checked vavles in the solution tank and water tank and they are working properly. Also checked the trigger to make sure it works okay. Any ideas?? Moody Fan

Bissell Pro Heat shampooer - Fill the soap dispenser with extremely hot water and shampoo with only water for a few minutes. There is often dried soap in the lines. Make sure that all filters are clean. Press the soap container and the water container firmly into place so that there is a good seal.
My repairman told me that after you finish shampooing your rugs be sure to fill the soap dispenser with very, very hot water and go over your rug until the water runs clean (not bubbly). This ensures that all the tubes are clear of clean and there is no remaining soap. He said that this is the reason for the vast majority of his repairs. My machine is about 10 years old and has been working great as long as I remember to run it with clear water when I'm done.

I replaced my Bissell vacuum cleaner belt with a Bissell belt. I ordered it from them so I know it's the right one. I replaced it and the roller won't spin and the belt smells like it burning.


Beckiande485:

You will need to unplug the vacuum from the wall, lay it down so you can see the bottom of the vacuum head and remove the bottom plate (foot plate) Probably philllips head screws. pull up on the roller (called the beater bar). The beater bar will come straight up. Disconnect the belt and check the fittings at the ends of the beater bar... I'll bet that they don't spin easily (The fittings have roller bearings in them, and the roller bearings get gunked up with hair, carpet fibers and dirt). Pull the end fittings off of the roller and remove all of the hair and carpet fibers off of the end of the beater bar and the fittings and out of the bearings. Check to make sure that the roller bearings spin freely. If they do not spin freely, put some rubbing alcohol in the bearing (you can pour it onto the bearing and spin the bearing manually until it spins freely, or you can use a spray bottle with alcohol in it as I do. Once the bearing spin freely, dry them out so no alcohol remains in the bearing, then a drop or two of light machine oil (3 in 1 oil will do) in each bearing and spin the bearing again to distribute the oil. Now would be a good time to check for any clogs in the vacuum head where the hose connects, and check the hose for clogs. Reassemble the beater bar and reinstall it in the vacuum with a new belt, reinstall the foot plate.

Your machine should run like new.

I have a bissell 7901-1 carpet cleaner and the gear the runs the beater bar is loose how does it connect to the pump thanks


turn your unit over so you are looking at the bottom (side towards floor) on either side of the brush are a phillip's screw- one side will show a larger red piece- take that phillips screw out, it will show you the pump you can take the belt access cover off and see the one belt, the belt to the beater brush is gear like- take the belt that connects to the brush and loop it over the gear on the pump- then put the brush belt over the brush and seat it back into the protector- I would suggest you hand spin the brush to ensure both belts and the pump are turning otherwise You may do like I did and burn the other belt- I replaced both belts just because it made sense- reseat the red piece you removed then replace and tighten the screw-

How can I tell if I need to replace the beater bar? I replaced the belt but now it seems too tight and the bar doesn't want to spin.


The belt is supposed to be tight, but the beater bar bearings are probably full of string, hair, and thread. Remove the bar, remove, clean, and oil the bearings (3-1 or similar). Leave the belt off for a moment, and install just the bar. Spin it with your fingers--it should revolve freely--if not, redo the clean/lube process again making sure to clean the inside of the bearings with a Q-tip swab. Once the bar spins freely, remove it to slide on the belt and reinstall. Hope this helps!

Bissell Pro Heat 7901 will spay through hose but not the floor and red flow indicator will not spin. So we took the housing off and after unclogging a hose running to the hearter, my husband unhooked the...


I borrowed my friends bissell to clean my carpet. It's the 7901. He brought it over and told me that it only sprayed out of the attachment hose. He said he couldn't figure out what was wrong. I'm no vacuum technician but, I am a mechnic. I decided to open her up and check it out. After about two hours it was back together and working. The reason I replied to your e-mail was because we have the same problem. I couldn't find an answer to this problem on this site so I will tell you what I found and hopefully it will help you. In removing the cover where the red heating light is, there is the heating unit for the water. In my case it is silver and it will get very hot so be careful. Notice that there is two water hoses connected to it. I removed this heater and found one of the connectors where the water hose goes was clogged. I took the back off the heater and used my air compressor to blow out the connector, and sure enough something flew out. Hope this helps. brian.small@bobstgroup.com

Bissell Proheat Pro-Tech #7901 will not spray any liquid to the carpet and red cross indicator is not turning,but comes out of attactments


The 7920 is a 220 volt version of the 7901. I found a shop in New Zealand of all places that has service manuals on line. They are sort of picture books, but using them has saved me a lot of money as it makes repairing much easier. Here's the link you'll need. Good luck. If you need any more help, just add a comment to your post and it will go to my e-mail and let me know. The heads you clean are just the outlet spray heads when they get gunky.
