Question about Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

Floor cleaning / tools or pretreat lever appears to be broken

When I steamcleaned my floor downstairs, after a day I noticed that there
were dirt spots remaining. I did a check of my machine, and noticed that
the lever for the floor cleaner/ tools or petreat lever was broken. Does that
mean that the vacuum part didnot work? The grey lever in middle was
kept open. Should it be shut when the floor cleaning is being done?

That grey lever needs to be closed while floor cleaning. You only open it when you use the hose.

Suction only comes out from hose attachment but nothing fron the bottom


Check All hoses and areas that the dirt goes through. Sounds like a plugged spot. Especially the dirt picker upper at the floor. All areas.

Automatic height adjustment not working


Check that there is no dirt clogging the main central wheel on the underside of the floor head. In any eventuality the main floor head hood will have to come off, via screws on the floor head base. By the right hand side , if looking down into the internals you'll notice two drive belts - check and see if these are intact. Directly next to this is the LED microchip board. Check that all the microchips are pushed in, as there is one for the height control that can usually pop out if the SEBO has been dropped or if the machine has been bumped off walls.

The suction seems so strong on the floor that it is suddenly hard to push. Don't notice anything thing that would actually lift it off the ground making the suction not so air tight. I have check the...


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your DC24 on this particular flooring. The cleaner head is designed to adjust automatically to suit the surface being cleaned, and the cleaner's powerful suction causes the soleplate to seal closely with the flooring for high pick-up of dirt and debris. You may find on certain floor types that this makes the cleaner feel a little heavy to push.

Reassuringly, it sounds as if your cleaner is working correctly - however, if you wish to discuss your issue further with one of our experts, please get in touch with us directly. You can call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Kind regards,

My bissell vacuum cleaner seems to just move dirt and paper around on the floor rather than suctioning it up. I checked the filters, any suggestions?


Sounds like you have a clog in the machine somewhere. Check under the machine where the dirt feeds into the bag. If their is a power head on this the belt is probably broken or stetched. Hope this helps

Leaving bigger dirtier wet spots after cleaning


Sounds like the vacuum motor is defective or you have a clog in the vaccum line. Basically everything is running except the vacuum "Suction" cycle. Do you hear the "Suction" phase (light indicator) during operation when it loudens like a whine? That would be the vacuum phase. Is the dirty water reservoir clean, do you rinse it thoroughly when you empty it? Have you removed the hose assy and rinsed it out? I think it is still part of the auto cycle even if you don't use the manual tool.

Hoover Tempo Widepath Blows Dirt Out Back on Hard Surfaces


lots of times switching to hard surface floors you need to slow down because the air flow that does the actual picking up of the dirt can't work as fast as the spinning brush so the brush is throwing the dirt out the back before the suction can pick it up. Try slowing down

Steam cleaning an oil spot on driveway


Hello gktweets,

Cleaning oil stains off of your driveway will require the right "products". However, if the oil stains are a heavy buildup then you will definately need to steamclean them off first.

What you will need to do is apply a sodium hydroxide based degreasing product (basically most types of degreasers) to the oil stains and let the product sit on the stains for a few days allowing for the degreaser to completely dry.

Then you will want to use a "hot" water pressure washer to steamclean the oil stains off. If you do not have a "hot" pressure washer then a cold water unit will work too just not as effectively.

If you do not have access to a pressure washer at all you should re-coat the oil stains with your degreasing product then scrub with a broom and rinse with a garden hose simultaneously.

After your driveway is completey dry and the oil stains are still minimally present you can apply a dry product known as Bio-Dry. They have videos posted up on you tube as how to purchase and apply the product.

This product will go to work on the leftover stain and will work "over-time" as far as lifting the stain out of your driveway.

You can see before and after pictures here at this site: http://www.DrivewaySteamCleaning.com

Feel free to leave any comments on the site as well, they are much appreciated.

Hope this information helps you.

Spotbot is leaking...


Mine constantly leaked as well but I found that if I remove the container will the solution in it after every use it doesn't leak anymore. I store my container (upright - nozzle face up) under the sink with my other cleaning products and when I need to use the machine I pull it back out, pop it in and clean.
