Question about Bissell 7920 ProHeat Pro-Tech Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
Okay, so my friends powered this cleaner and in the midst of using it "it just stopped working." I got it back from them and found that it was clogged in many places full of dog hair. (Apparently, they didn't vaccum the carpet before they tried to clean it. I yi yi!)
Anyway, I cleared it of all hair/jams, I replaced the pump, and the belts, and water sprayed for about 10 seconds and then quit again on me.It IS pulling water from at least one area...but most of it is "dribbling" into the bottom half of the machine NOT onto the carpet.
There ARE bubbles in the lines, so I did my best to fill the lines with more liquid...in case air was causing a problem...still no resolution.
I cleaned out the heater as suggested on here also and no, the hand tool doesn't spray either. Any other suggestions?
I'm really frustrated but still think it must be something "easy" and would be ********** to have bought new parts, worked on it, and then take it to a repair shop and spend a lot of money on something still pretty simple.
You could have a pinched line. When you put the top back on, the piston should have been on the bottom of the smart mix valve and in the water only setting. The heater could be plugged, which is in the handle. If water sprays out of the tool hose, then the heatr or line in the handle is clogged. Is the gasket on the water and the soap bottle on the valve at the bottom, it has to be on it not sitting in the hole.Is the top secured all of the way around, sometimes the back will back free and rise up causing problems. Spray nozzles are clogged. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if it will unclog it.
