Question about Bissell 8910 ProHeat Clear View Upright Vacuum

Open Question

I havea Bissell ProHeat Model 7901. My problem is that the brush doesn't rotate. I have removed the access cover and both belts and found that the central cylinder for both belts is frozen and will not turn easily. Both belts are fine, except they are now burnt from this cylinder not being able to rotate. What I need is how do I remove the top cover to get at this cylinder to remove it and free it up?

SOURCE: connecting a BISSELL AUTO MIX PISTON TO A AUTO MIX KNOB

Take of the housing ,turn it over and you will see the under side of the auto mix dial , Then turn the auto mix dial to rinse only;
On the top of the piston you will see a small slot , this fits into
the out side spiral on the auto mix knob with the dial set to rinse only the top part of the spiail sould point to the courner
Tilt the piston slightly,then hook it on the point of the auto mix knob , when you turn the auto mix dial to heavy traffic the piston should slide down the outer spiral of the auto mix-dial ,
Put the housing back on with the auto mix dial set to heavy traffic, but make sure no tubes are trapped or this will stop the flow of water,
i hope you can under stand what i have wrote ,Goodluck

SOURCE: Bissell Proheat Pro-Tech #7901 will not spray any liquid to the carpet and red cross indicator is not turning,but comes out of attactments

Thanks to many others who have posted on similar problems -- water and/or solution sprays through the handheld tools, but not through the main machine.

As others have suggested, I removed the water reservoir, which exposes the 2 main water sprays mounted above the rollers. Using, pliers, I carefully slid the clips back. Gently but firmly removed the two red nozzles.

Elsewhere I have read suggestions to just do one nozzle at a time. However, I found out that if you remove both red nozzles, you can then blow through one side and it will come out the other. In my case, that dislodged a nice collection of crystal-like chunks (guessing it may be crystallized residue from the cleaning solution).

There was also a bit of blockage in one of the red nozzles, which I cleaned out. Make sure you can blow through both of them with little resistance.

Reassemble: Push red nozzles back into hoses. Using pliers, reposition sprung clip back over the red nozzle. Snap nozzles back into place. Refill tanks and power it up.

In my case, that resolved the problem of no sprays from the main machine. Sprays like new now. Hope yours does too!!

I have a bissell 7901-1 carpet cleaner and the gear the runs the beater bar is loose how does it connect to the pump thanks


turn your unit over so you are looking at the bottom (side towards floor) on either side of the brush are a phillip's screw- one side will show a larger red piece- take that phillips screw out, it will show you the pump you can take the belt access cover off and see the one belt, the belt to the beater brush is gear like- take the belt that connects to the brush and loop it over the gear on the pump- then put the brush belt over the brush and seat it back into the protector- I would suggest you hand spin the brush to ensure both belts and the pump are turning otherwise You may do like I did and burn the other belt- I replaced both belts just because it made sense- reseat the red piece you removed then replace and tighten the screw-

The brush will not turn


Hi! Your question has come up under Bissell ProHeat, so I'll assume that's the model you're talking about.  There are several possibilities. The simplest is that the drive belt has broken. There are two drive belts on the ProHeat and you're best advised to go to the Bissell website (www,bissell.com) where you can download a manual for your exact model.  Worst case scenario, which I have seen, is where the brush drive motor has become wet, it has corroded and will no longer rotate, and this burns out a little circuit board that's located in the handle. If your belts are OK, and the brushes are free to rotate, there's probably a problem with the motor and I strongly recommend consulting a professional repairer. Getting in to the machine is a minor nightmare, and getting it back together is worse. The cost of such a repair may well exceed the value of the machine. Good luck!  I value your feedback.  If this has helped please remember to rate me.  If it hasn't helped, please re-post with more details and I'll try again.

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
