Question about Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum
I Had the same problem with my model 79011...take the upright handle apart & you will see a pot-metal rectangular box midway down the lower section of the handle with wires on it & 2 hoses attached. This is the water heater unit. LET IT COOL IF YOU JUST HAD THE UNIT ON AS IT WILL BE HOT!!! Take the hoses off & carefully **** the inlets out ( do NOT probe more than about an inch in) with a piece of coathanger wire. Flush heater unit out by hooking a peice of hose up to the heater unit & blow into it to flush the loosened crud out. Hook it all back up & it should work like new! What happens, is the alkalis in the cleaning solutions react with the pot-metal & cause corrosion to build up, eventually clogging the unit, thus not allowing waterflow thru it. Built to fail just like all modern junk! ;) Hope this helps! Ross

Compare it to the 7901- does it have a heating unit? My 7901 does and I disassembled the heater and cleared the clog- problem is the soap hardens either inside the lines or in my case inside the heater unit- it took me a small drill bit and a paper clip to clear it- check it out on yours
