This unit has the outer window, and a half moon window behind it. Check to make sure the 2 screws holding the half moon window are tight and that the plastic hasn't broken. The 2 windows at the bottom cener merge together, they may have come apart. Usually when one or the other window is out of place, it will cause a drag. You may have to replace the half moon window.

My Bissil Pro Heat works great except when I push the shampooer it sounds n feels like the front drags accros the floor like it is catching on something and is not gliding like it should smoothly n...


Check to see if there is a broken or cracked part on the plastic on the front or the bottom of the machine where it glides across the carpet. Usually it is the part where the machine sucks the dirty water up in to the machine that is broken and catches on the carpet. If you need one of these parts I have them new and pre-owned.

Now I know why the bissell is dragging. There is no middle position on the handle. There is either upright or low (for under furniture) What can I do?


Hi Eva! If your machine is dragging on the carpet, one of the clear nozzles on the front may be off alignment. Here's a link to our FAQ to help you with the dragging: http://www.bissell.com/FAQDetail.aspx?id=1102&cid=ccsocial

Hoover carpet cleaner won't dispense solution or water. Everything else works.


1.Remove bottom tank and look for pinched hose. 2.Use small screwdriver or toothpick on small holes which disperse solution-remove rotating brush first. These were problems with my steamvac (f5861-900 model).

Bissell Proheat 25A3/64D9 series - cleaned one rug - now the wheels won't turn and it looks like the belts are on ok. What else should I look for?


I had the same problem. I found that when I took the belt door off, the belt was fine. I turned it over and took the red retainer arm out and then removed the screw on the white brush holder, the toothed belt was fine also. Somehow the machine had grabbed a carpet cord and wrapped it around the pulley where the toothed belt and the flat belt both attach. The spindle just wouldn't turn. After removing the carpet thread, everything worked fine again.

Bex bissell delux carpet washer is not sucking water up, can you help thanx.


I had the same problem, take the water tank out, look on the bottom, is there a red seal on the tank? If not, its either lost (can get new one here http://www.4bissell.co.uk/cgi-bin/product.pl?PID=947370&query=7920%2de) or more likely its stuck in the bottom, if it is get a screwdriver and prise it out of the base and put it on the tank. All should be well. Regards Paul

Sebo Automatic X1 vacuum 'check brush' light on


I work in a Sebo agency, where we sell and repair Sebos - although they're so reliable we don't get that many to repair.  What's "automatic" about this machine is that it automatically adjusts the brush height so that it's ideal for whatever floor it's on.  It does that by sensing the amount of drag on the brush.  On a wood floor, there's much less drag than on a carpet, so the machine lowers the brush as far as possible to get the optimum drag.  After a while (4 1/2 years in your case) the brush has worn so far that the machine can no longer get it down low enough to brush the floor effectively. That's why the light comes on.  There's still plenty of bristle to do a good job on carpet but, if you want to do the best job on your wood floors too, you need a new brush roller.  Change the brush roller, and you'll probably feel the suction's improved too!
Any questions, just post a comment and I'll help if I can.  I value your feedback so please remember to rate this response.
Good luck!

Belts can look ok, but after a short period stretch so they won't turn the brush roll under load, if you have never changed it, and if it is a flat belt, I would try a new one.
