I had exactly the same problem with my five-year old my Bissell 7920, and it's probably a broken pump belt.  See page 19 of your instruction manual for how to replace.  The Bissel ProHeat belt accessory pack costs $3.99 and you get a pump belt and a brush belt.  Since you have to first remove the brush belt to get to the pump belt, you might as well replace both. The first time I did this it took me 15 minutes, but now that I know the drill, doing a belt replacement would take about 3 minutes.

If it's a single speed model it has two filters which should be replaced Avery couple years. There is an exhaust filter on the back which you must un-clip or un-screw to remove the cover holding the filter in place. This is a washable filter which should be washed after each use and replaced every couple years depending on use. Single speed models also have a cooling filter which is in the motor compartment and should be replaced every couple years by a qualified technician

Make sure the suction area of the face plate is clear of all debris. If anything else, call the number on the machine, it's still under warrantee if the machine doesn't work from normal use.

Water comes out when trigger is squeeze but wont **** up dirty water


A. Is your floor/hose knob in the correct position?
B. Do you have suction at the hose end, when in that position?
C. If you answered yes, no in that order then either your motor (provides the suction) is going bad, or it simply is clogged and needs to be serviced.

Not sucking up water


Hi.  I had the same problem.  After looking at the manual I went back and made sure the canister was making a proper seal.  That fixed the problem.  Make sure when you put the top back on the canister (that holds the dirty water), that you place the two front hinges in  place first and then snap the center clap on the back of the top.  This will give you a proper seal for suction. (My two front hinges weren't fitting correctly.)
Good luck!

Suction problem


The valve on the bottom of the water bucket is not being pushed up enough to allow the vaccuum to go through. Perhaps a part is missing but I used a small ball bearing and a car vaccuum cap to build it up and now our works but it is still a piece of ****. I hope this helps

Today lemonaide is made of artificial flavors and furnature polish is made of real lemons.
Believe me that alot of stuff now is **** and you will find that out. I have to fix most stuff that comes right out of the box before we can use it. If I cannot I take the darn thing back. Welcome to the real world of the industry standards that have no ethics anymore.

Smells hot


Sounds like you may have a bad motor. It is probably trying to work, that is why the suction is low and it gets warm. It will have to be replaced.

the problem is that after used you have to run clear water through it. the reason is that once you put it away there is still soap inside the tubes. after some time the soap gets hard and clogs it. in the case of the machines that have the heat the heater is also full of hard soap.

good luck

Not dispensing water and no suction


I'm assuming the belts are OK.... Your heater is clogged. Unplug the machine and let it sit for 30 minutes. Take the handle apart, there will be a 4 inch by 8 inch metal box inside. This is the heater. Remember I said to let the machine sit for 30 minutes? If you didn't, the heater may be EXTREMELY hot!! Disconnect the two hoses going into it, and clean the metal pieces out (that the hoses connected to) with a needle or very small drill bit. You may want to remove the 6 or 8 screws holeding the heater together and remove the cover to clean it out. Reassemble and fill both tanks with VERY hot water ONLY and run the machine to rinse the entire system.

To prevent future reoccurences... use only Bissell extraction shampoos. Never put anything in the detergent tank except shampoo. (And only water in the water tank) Mixing chemicals with anything else turns the water/detergent mix to sludge. Also, when finished shampooing, put ONLY water in both tanks, and run the machine until one of the tanks run out of solution. Doing this rinses the hose lines out and prevents hardening of the solution in the heater ports.

I've fixed these machine for years. No dispensing is almost always the heater clogged.

Suction


Opening that door and attaching the hose will let the suction go thru that hose. So if when you removed the hose, if that door isn't closed tight will cause you to have a suction problem It has to seal and have no leaks. The other thing when be a problem with the recovery tank not sealing when you put it back on. Other then that, any air leak will cause a suction problem.
