It's one of two things:

1. The Bladder may be empty. Remember, the bladder is inside the reservoir, so the bladder may look full, but in fact could be empty.

2.Or the lent screen may be clogged.

Can any one send me a diagram of the internal water and soap connection for A Bissell proheat carpet cleaner Model #7901-1. i imagine pump also needs to be primed, which port do I use to do this. Thank you...


Click here for the manual - We think this will guide you,
As for the pump / port to be primed -
For Prime and loss of prime please click HERE -

From what Bissell says you must prime both - please read page 7 especially.

This should get you good to go.

Bissell pro heat steam carpet cleaner, not releasing water.


That means that you need to replace the pump belt. Here is the belt you need and a manual you can view:

Machine will not dispense water or cleaner


That means that the pump belt is worn, stretched or broken and it needs to be replaced. Here is a link to the belts you need and the manual.

Unit is seated properly but water/fluid will not come out when I press the trigger. Suction works fine. Bissell ProHeat 2X used only four times.


You need to check that the motor drive belt is OK and turning freely to drive the water pump - under the flap on the right side at the front as you look at the front of the Bissell. If this is OK have you filled the cleaning bottle with fluid etc? If so you may have an airlock in the pipe from the bottle to the motor. You can also have a blockage from the pump to the dispenser nozzles and can test this by taking off the top cover and taking the plastic tubes off them to see if water comes out of the tube. You can also do the same for the tube from the tank to the pump to see if water is getting to the pump OK. Also make sure that the mix valve setting (on the left side - looking from the front) is not turned to the off position. This could also be blocked and need cleaning or replacing.

Water doesn't come out my Bissel rug cleaner model 7901


The flat belt on you machine has an access panel to it from the side of the machine. That belt runs the pump if it is broken or came off the machine won't pump.

Check to make sure both of the red/black circular rubber gaskets on either solution or recovery tank are on the tanks and not stuck down inside the inlet valves on the machine itself.

Make sure there is fluid in both tanks. Without fluid in both tanks the pump loses prime and will not work.

If all that checks out then you are down replacing the pump, but usually when the pump goes out, you will have a short burst of water when you first turn it on and then it stops working.

Hope that helps you out-Good Luck

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix know. Pump is bad.

Dirtlifter Powerbrush does not turn


Make the machine safe from the power source first
When you remove the belt access door you are looking at the pump belt,
To gain access to the brush belt you must turn the machine over and remove the brush at the bottom of the machine.
there are two screw in the red retainers at each side of the brush, remove the screws and the retainers and the pivot arms ,you should see the brush belt and the pump
