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

1 Answer

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.

Dirt devil turbo clean sd40060 Cyclonic vacuum. Was given it as a present. Floor tool won't spin. Checked everything! Belt, for hair through out. All ok. Why isn't it working?


You should find a large button or flap on the floor tool. This is usually spring loaded and needs to be OUT. This should then let air in to drive the turbine which drives the spinner.

My Bissell powersteam powerbrush carpet cleaner wont spray water from the floor jets or the hose. Checked the belt, its doesn't look damaged, also took it apart and cleaned the floor jets, still nothing.


Check any related mechanical and/or electrical parts, including switched, levers, buttons, valves and all water-ways. Make sure all electrical connections are clean, functioning with a multi-meter, and all pieces are NOT broken or malfunctioning and clean. replace any broken or malfunctioning parts that you can't clean or repair.

When I step on the lever to place the vacuum in cleaning position, the head will not stay on the floor. Is there a spring or something to apply pressure of the head to the floor? Can I fix this?


The weight of the brush in the front should keep it on the floor. The hinge may be full of dirt and needs to be cleaned out to ensure freedom of movement.

When i vacuum the dirt and particles are not going into the windtunnel container-appears to be cleaning floor but isnt making it into the container.filters are checked and cleaned.less than 6 months old


If there is no obvious clog in the unit, you might want to check the beater brush and the drive belt. Be sure the belt is not broken and be sure the beater brush is free enough to rotate. If there is a broken belt it will be obvious.
I suggest you remove the beater brush and clean it as best you can, add some WD40 at each end by the brush holders and reassemble.
I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating on this if you find my solution to be beneficial.

The hand cleaner picks up dirt but the floor cleaner does not.


A couple ideas.

1. Have you emptied your dirt?
2. Are your filters clean?
3. Is your roller brush working and if not, is your belt broken?
Hope this helps and good luck!

Not sucking up dirt off floor any longer


Chances are there is some blockage in the pathway from the floor to the bagless colllector. Use a flash light to look in the tube and straighten out a wire coat hanger to probe the areas you can not see.

Finally if your vacuum has a beater bar/brush that spins against the floor check to see that it is spinning. If it is not, that indicates that the belt which drives the brush is broken.

good luck.
