That is correct; the new pump has a metal pulley, which is more durable.

Nobody seems to be able to answer the question on how to change the belt on a bissell steam cleaner ..... Bissell is horrible for never giving customers proper instruction manuels .... THUMBS DOWN FOR...


i have the same prob. this is what i found


Since changing the belt is the easiest fix, we suggest you check that first. (Before attempting any repair be sure your machine is unplugged from the electrical outlet). Most Proheat models have two belts; a cogged belt that turns the brush roll, and a flat belt that turns the pump. If the pump belt is stretched or broken it needs to be replaced. The pump and belts are located in the front of the machine on the operator’s left. Turn the machine over and you’ll see a red retainer with 2 screws. Remove the retainer to gain access to the pump and belts. While you’re there check the red pump pulley, it’s where the two belts are. If that pulley is broken or loose you’ll have to replace the whole pump, the pulley is not available separate.

on your housing you will see a plastic cover adout 4 inches long remove this piece and you should see where your pump belt goes. flip your steamer over and remove the little red retainer that sits by the belt you have located. at this point you can take your brushroll out and slip the pump belt over the pump and onto your motor. then reassemble.

Bissel pro heat /brushes do not turn


Belt worn or hair build up can clog it from spinning. I've seen this on other models. Just remove the hair slowly. If the Belt is worn you can replace that from Bissel or any store that sells their product.


Check to ensure that the pump belt and brush belt are intact and installed according to the instructions provided in the User's Guide.

The pump belt is located under the belt access door on the side of the machine. This belt should be looped around the red pulley and the silver motor shaft.

To check the brush belt, please follow these directions:

Turn the machine OFF and unplug from the wall outlet.

Step on the handle release pedal to lay the handle down on the floor.

Remove the Tank-in-Tank and SmartMix Bottle and set them aside.

Turn the machine over to expose the brush.

Look for the red retainer plates, which hold the black brush arms in place. Remove the two Phillips head screws to access the toothed brush belt. Check to ensure the belt is intact and looped around the brush end, as well as the red pulley with the ridges.

Remove any dirt or debris from the brush assembly.
Inspect brush, brush arms, red brush arm retainers and red pulley for damage and replace parts if applicable.

Bissell Proheat Clearview - Belt and pump keep melting


Is the brush roll turning freely? Is there something binding the pump pulley or belt casuing it to not turn? Was the replacement pump a new one? If you replace these parts again, after doing so, try turning the pump pulley by hand to see if it will turn the brush roll easlly, if it doesn't then there is a problem.

Pump belt on bissell scrubber


If this is a Bissell Pro-Heat, then first take the belt cover off, it is on the left side on top of the noozle. Then turn it over, take out the one screw from the red lock, pull it off, then remove the cogged belt, take out the old pump belt if still on from underneath. Put a new one over the pump end, then feed it thru the opening and put it over the motor shaft. Put it all back together.

Bissell pro heat


The easiest way is remove the belt cover on the top housing, turn unit over, on the belt side remove the red plastic lock, one screw, then you can pull the brush roll cap out, take it off, then you can get to the cogged belt, look further in and you can get to the pump belt. You didn't which belt you want to change, if it is the cogged belt, check the end on=f the pump that the belt goes on, if the cogs are gone, you will have to replace the pump, if they are there, then just replace the belt and put back together.
