Question about Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

2 Answers

I have a bissell proheat multi surface 2x model 9200-T 08296C. It stopped spitting the water and soap out on the floor, but still sucks from the base and hose. I took it apart to see if anything was disconnected but saw nothing. Please help!

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

Bissell pro heat 2x multi surface carpet cleaner making spots


maybe there's not enough vacuum or it hasn't been primed enough. I have a proheat that drove me crazy till I started leaving the heat switch on. I get wads of carpet fiber that mat around brush and spit out on the carpet, so I frequently remove them. I'm just wondering if after you empty the water, it may not have built up the suction. Good luck! hope this may be helpful
