Re: Wheels (rear) How do I remove them?

You might be better off taking it to sears. taking the rear wheels off may do more damage then before.

I'm trying to get my S7000 Miele to stand upright an lock in this position. It wont , i tried to see if foot release was jammed but cant tell it doesnt seem to release to let it move upright an lock in...

There is a rear dust cover that sometimes gets stuck, this will make it almost impossible to lock the handle up. First locate the cover which is at the rear right above the wheels. It's about 2"x8" and ribbed vertically and slides up behind the rear panel of the lower body. If it's in there and stuck, just realign it with the 2 grooves on each side or remove it completely; it is a dust shield after all. The best fix is to replace the rear panel and dust shield and they are ordered together and the cost is fairly low. Also check the alignment of the rear body panel at the bottom There are 2 tabs that protrude down about and inch on each side, the one closest to the handle release lever sometimes gets bent and causes the unit to jam. If this does not help there is one more solution involving the rear wheel assembly. check to see that the rear wheel axel is straight, meaning both wheels are parallel at all times while releasing the handle. If the axel is crooked, the wheel assembly must be replaced and you should have a Miele service center order the part and do it for you.

How replace rear wheel bissell 9400?


Hi There,

Ok, so in order to get the wheel assembly back into the machine, you're going to have to take apart the machine, or at least the housing underneath of the clean/dirty solution tank, as well as the housing that the shampoo solution sits on. I took pictures to help you on this repair.

Here's what you need to do:

Step 1. Remove both the Shampoo tank and the Clean / Dirty Water tank from the machine completely and set them aside. You'll need to now remove the housing that the shampoo container sits in by unscrewing the 5 screws that I've circled in red:


Step 2. After you've removed these 5 screws, lift straight up on the housing that the shampoo tanks sits in. You'll now need to remove the screws that I've circled red to remove the complete lower housing that secures the wheels in place:


Step 3. You'll need to unhook the clear housing in the front that holds the brush cover over the bottom housing. You may just use a flat head screw driver, or something to pry this housing off the bottom plate:

Step 4. Open up the bottom housing by grabbing the raised portion of the motor housing in the back of the machine. Simply re-insert the wheels into the grooves now, and after the wheel is in place, re-secure the lower housing over top of the wheel to keep it from coming out again. The bottom plate is what goes over top of the wheel to keep it in place.

If you have any follow up questions, please just add a comment here on Fixya, and I'll do whatever it takes to make sure that you get your Bissell ProHeat fixed. I'm not just one of these "experts" that just gives you vauge information and really doesn't know or care about getting your problem fixed. My concern first and foremost is to see you get your problem fixed, and I'm happy to answer as many follow up questions as it takes to get that done. I hope this helped!

Thank you,

Chris Jones

My rear wheels keep poppping off. I've hammered and glued, but they won't stay on. Do I need new wheels or a new axle assembly?


You may need to just purchase the the little c-clips that hold the wheels onto the axle. Kirby Vacuums actually have a hub cap on their rear wheels that can be removed to access the axle end with the c-clip. If you take a flat head screwdriver, and pry off the plastic part of the wheel off of the rubber part, you should be able to see the end of the axle. There should be a little tiny c-clip at the end of the axle that holds the rear wheel in place. Is that clip there on both sides?

If yes, then you may need to replace the entire axle assembly. If they are missing these clips are available for purchase through many online websites including our own,

If this repair didn't fix your Kirby, please contact me, I'm happy to try and diagnosis this further with you. If it did help, please rate the repair as helpful, thank you.

Need a pair of rear wheels

I need one rear wheel for the 1631-1. Did you find a source for these?

The axle for the rear wheels have worn into the cut outs in the body that it goes through and they are rubbing on the wheel wells. This common for this vacuum model , the only real fix is to replace the body assembly. Sears will have to do this, this is NOT somthing you want to tackle by your self.
As for the machine locking upright that is the release lever and it just needs to be replaced.
