I need to change the pump drive belt on a bissell 1694 carpet cleaner.
i cannot see any obvious way to get the belt on the pump drive pulley, without completely dis-assembling the whole machine.
can anyone help please.
Turn the unit upside down and on each side of the roller brush is a red piece of plastic with screws remove and take off roller then you will see the belt drive stem place around stem and on roller and pop back in, Reassemble. Steve

Turn the machine OFF (O) and unplug from the outlet. To check if the brush belt or pump belt has broken, you will need a flat head screwdriver. Insert the blade end into the lower slot of the belt access door to release the lower snap. If necessary, insert the blade end into the upper slot to release the upper snap.
There is a lint screen, but not really another filter per say. But you may have a stretched pump belt. Here is a link to your manual at the manufacture's web site. This link is only to YOUR manual so I am not suggesting any particular place to purchase from. http://www.bissell.com/images/UserGuides/1694-8806_607.pdf
When you look in this manual, on page 11 you will see the common wear parts on your machine... it's a good idea to have extra belts around incase you are having now.
I hope this helps.
If it is the flat belt that broke, that is the pump belt, the pump can't work without it. To replace the belts, turn the unit over, remove the red holder, has one screw, pull it out, then the brush roll will come loose. You can replace the belts thru that opening.

Most of the Bissell’s the belt is changed from the bottom or the top is removed and you service it from the top. There are usually screws, clips or levers to remove the bottom plate or top cover and once that is removed then the belt change. If the belt is a flat belt the recommended belt change is every 4 to 6 months and id it is a geared belt then you would change it once a year for the best cleaning. If you have questions, refer to the owner’s manual in the trouble shooting section, if you don’t have an owner’s manual then you can contact the Bissell Factory cust serv listed below.
