Diverter knob & flap & gasket broke

The diverter knob appears to be okay but the flap and gasket broke. I have replacement parts on order but how do I get the old flap's arm out and the new flap reconnected to the diverter knob? (Acutally a 7901.)

You will have to pull the top cover off, it fits underneath unto the knob. When you see the bottom, you should be able to tell. The arm of the diverter goes thru the hole and then hooks onto the bottom of the knob.

I have a 7950 Bissell. I can't get it to **** up from either the tools or floor area. I tried adjusting the knob on side but still no luck. Any suggesions?


First check to see if there is suction at the motor duct. If not contact you local BISSELL Authorized Service Center at http://www.bissell.com/customer-support/.

If there is suction,
a) Check if the small rounded window tabs on the Floor Nozzle are locked in
their mating slots and not inadvertently lifting the tank up out of place?
b) Check to ensure oval seal is in place at the top of floor nozzle window.
c) Check the diverter knob for proper setting and the diverter door opens and
closes properly. If no, and it does not appear to be broken, remove the floor nozzle window, open diverter door manually, keeping the flat
side of the door against the unit. Set the diverter knob on the tools setting.
Manually close diverter door until there is resistance, hold it in place while
turning the diverter knob towards the floor setting to lock it back in place.
Reinstall the floor nozzle window. (If diverter door will not lock back in place,
go to a BISSELL Authorized Service Center).
d) Check for the black foam gasket under the diverter door. Replace if
necessary.
e) Check floor nozzle window to ensure it is screwed down properly. If there is
a ¼" gap between the window, where it wraps around to the side of the
unit, and the base on the slanted section, reinstall window.
This gap can be eliminated by installing the tabs at the top of the window,
hold it in place, then push up from the bottom of the window to bow the
window, push it against the unit and then evenly slide it down into place.
f) Check half moon window to ensure it is screwed down properly on
CleanView models. The floor nozzle window should be lower to the floor
then the half moon window.
g) Make sure tank is not full on the outside of the bladder.
h) Check the tank lint screen for debris. Remove it to check.
i) Check tank lid and tank for damage.
j) Check float and baffle to ensure they are properly installed properly. The
baffle should be even with the top of the tank

Bissel 7920 Diverter Valve Install


With the top cover off, turn it over, put the knob in the water only setting, the piston will fit in the slot (only one way), turn the knob some so it will stay on. Put the cover back on, but just before you push it down, turn the knob to the water only setting again, then push the top cover all of the way down. Turn the knob, you can feel if it is in the chamber or not. If not, it won't turn or be hard to turn.

What is this part called?


It is called the diverter, part #2136988 is most likely what is broke. But the part #2145170 is for the knob in case you need it. Most repair shops should be able to get this part for you, if not bissell.com should be able to give you the nearest servicer to you.

Flap


Most likely the diverter valve is broken part #2136988. You will have to remove the top to replace it.

Replace the switch that controls hand tools to the upright unit


If that flap isn't moving when you turn the knob for floor or hose, then yes it is broken, part #2136988 is the diverter valve. You will have to remove the top cover, it mounts on the underside of it.

No suction


When you turned the diverter knob, did the gray diverter valve open up? If not, this would be why no suction, it has to be open for the hose and closed to suction from the floor. Alot of times, the valve breaks and won't work. Is the black ovule shaped gasket on te top of the window and the edge of the tank, if gone, then there will be no suction. Is the filter on the tank lid clean?
