No; the new pump has a metal pulley which is more durable then red plastic pulley. be sure to place a 3/4 thick x 10 inch long (small shelf works) piece of wood under housing before removing top.

Yes, it should be spinning and driving both belts. If it is not you would need to have it fixed by a service center. This should be covered if your machine is still in warranty. Here is a link to find your nearest BISSELL Authorized Service Center:

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.

Broken belt how to fix i have a belt


Take off belt cover on the left side of the top cover, turn cleaner over, take out screw from red lock and remove, pull cap and brush roll out, unhook the cogged belt, then you can replace the pump belt thru that opening. Put belt over the pump pulley and stretched to go over the motor shaft. Then check the cogged belt and the cogged end of the pully to make sure that there are cogs, replace belt if there are cogss missing or belt is broke, if no cogs on the pulley, then you will have to replace the pump. Pulley only comes witht he pump.

Where can I get a hard copy of manual for Bisell 7920 ProHeatr


Try bissell.com, part number for the owner manual is 2105811. It has 2 belts, one for the pump and a cogged belt for the brush roll. Take off the belt cover on the left side and you can see the flat pump belt, if it looks ok, then turn unit over, remove the red arm retainer, has one screw, then the you can pull the arm loose and off, the cogged belt is there. If not broke, then look at the end of the pump, it is a double pulley, the inner one is for the flat belt, the outer one has a cogged pulley, the cogs may be worn down, or it has broken off, in which case you will have to replace the pump, the pulley comes only with the pump.
