My Bissell will not spray water out on the floor but the hand tool works fine. Need some advice on what to check


First check fluid levels. Check Bladder level is full and Heater tank level. Sounds silly but you never know
1. Check the tank seating. If the tanks aren't seated corrected they won't work correctly. Turn off and unplug unit. Remove tanks and reinstall them.
2. Check filter. It may be clogged. This is the "FLOW INDICATOR". Remove the cap and rotor. The filter is just below the rotor and cleans by back flushing. CAUTION: don't drop it down the drain.
3. Check pump belt. Belt can break and cause the problem. Turn off unit. Turn unit back on and check too see the DirtLifter PowerBrush turns. Refer to NOTE below if brush doesn't turn.
4. Reprime pump. Loss of prime can happen if fluid levels are low. Turn unit off for 1 minute then turn unit on and press the trigger.

For all checks it is best to turn unit off and unplug it. NEVER USE ELECTRICITY WITH FLUIDS.
BROKEN BELT: Turn the machine off and unplug it. Move it to a dry area. You will need a flat head screwdriver.
NOTE:
Insert screwdriver into the lower slot of the belt access door to release the lower snap (on left side of unit as you are looking from the front about an inch up behind the adjustment knob) If necessary insert the blade end into the upper slot to release the upper snap. Examine the belt for breakage. If broken, refer to your User Guide for replacement parts. Installation instructions will accompany the replacement.

We have a Miele Silver Moon vacuum that isn't


Hi dear.There are two type of attachments for this vacuum cleaners to pick up the pets hair,fluff & so on.They call it"Turbo & Power Brush".Turbo brush operates with machines suction & Power one operates with small electric motor which is built in the unit.They work with the same prenciple.There is a belt drives the rotary brush.OK.there are two small yellow screw underneath the unit.Please undo them,take of the cover & clean the rotary brush,check for the belts tension.It should be enough tight to drive the brush.If not ask for spare part from Miele in your country.After cleaning please put it back in order.To test it,attached to the vacuum.Turn the power on for Turbo brush,as long as suction starts,brush should start turning too.For the Power one,there should be power button on the handle to turn it on & off.Press it.It should work.On both of the unit,brush should spin good & strong enough to do the job when it's attached the surface you are vacuuming.Check the brush after each use,cleaned if neccesary. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Manual says series 7901 and series 8910. Won't


In order to spray anything out of this machine, you need to have water in the bladder and water or solution in the smartmix bottle. If you don't have both, it won't work. Try this first, if it doesn't work you can access the tubing under the housing cover. You'll need a phillips screwdriver and pliers. Lay the machine handle down and take out the water bladder. There are two screws just in back of the bladder compartment; two in the middle of the compartment and two at the front of the floor noozle. You will also have to loosen and take off the round clear cover, red pinwheel and white strainer of the smart flow. (Mine is on the top left of the cover). Take the screws out and gently lift the cover up. This exposes all the tubing, the pump, etc.
I took off each hose separately and used an air canister to make sure the tubes weren't clogged. I just couldn't figure out how to get to the two ends that go into the inside of the wheel.
I hope this helps.

The water will not spray out. we've check all the troubleshooting suggestions , still won't spray


This seams to be a common issue with Bissell cleaners. Personally I think it's great but I love taking things apart. So I'll be more then happy to explain how to completely dismantle your cleaner......or I can just tell you where to look for the problem with the sprayer.......

From your frown I take it you don't have the "I don't care if it's not broke I want to take it apart anyway gene".

Ok the sprayer repair it is...
The two most common causes of the lack of spray are a worn, stretched or broken belt or a clogged heater unit. Along with those there are a couple miscellaneous items you can check also.

Since the belt is easier start there. Remember that most Pro Heats have two belt. A cogged belt which turns the brushes and a flat belt for the pump. Since I'm not sure exactly which model you have this description may not be a perfect match. The belts are located on the operators 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.

Before you check the heater be sure to check the spray nozzles at the front most Pro Heats have one on each side and they are attached with small hose clips. Just pop them off and make sure they are clear of any clogs.

After the nozzles and again this will depend on your Pro Heat model. Make sure that the nozzle on the bottom of the reservoir is working properly. Just pushing it open from the underside will verify it's not plugged.
If the belt, pulley and nozzles are all ok then......are you sure you don't want to tear it apart?......A relaxing weekend at home with carpet shampooer parts strewn everywhere? fine but don't say I didn't offer.

At the very least you will need to remove the screws from the back of the handle to gain access to the heater core. Please be careful as they can retain heat a long time. Remove the tubing from the heater and also the heater cover. You’ll probably see sediment inside. Clean out any sediment you see and use a paper clip on the nipple connectors where the clear plastic tubing was attached to ensure they are not clogged. After reassembly, running some white vinegar through your machine may help to clean out any sediment left behind.

If you have reached this point you could have a bad pump. In which case you can buy a replacement pump for around $20,00.

If this is the case please respond back to me with your exact model # and I can get you to a web site for a replacement and possibly even diagrams.

I hope something here helps.

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.

I HAVE A EUREKA ALTIMA AND CANT CHANGE BELT


The hood will come off if you loosen two screws at the front on top of the hood by the brush bar bit that is slightly raised. Then there's a screw to the left hand side of the upright either below the hose or duster area. Once all screws are undone, the hood should pop off.

Changing belt


take the water and solution tank out of the machine. turn it over an on the left hand side you will see a red clip with a screw in it. take out that screw. flip the unit back over and take off the belt access cover by sticking a straight screw driver down into the slots and popping the clips to release the cover. tilt the machine to the side and using your finger wiggle the red plastic piece down out of the way. the beater bar on that side should be free. make sure both belts are in good shape because the belts run the beater bar and the second belt runs the water pump.

Bissell model 8910 carpet cleaner


Depending on which style you have, it may have a opening on the right side as you look at the front of the machine. If not you may need to remove the cover. If it does it says "belt access" and has two 1/8" (about) slots in the cover. with a small screw driver or something similar insert tool into slot and gently pry(if you are looking from the side) the left slot up and towards the right and the right slot up and to the left. It will slowly (or quickly depending on how hard you have to push) pop up and you can slide it off and see the pump. I think it is easier to just remove the 4 screws that hold the pump in place so you can replace both belts at the same time and not struggle with having to stretch the new belts. The last time I did this the Sprocket(small metal peice with teeth that turns the brushes) had broken off. I cleaned and dried everything and used 30 second epoxy to glue the sprocket back on and it works fine lasts a long time. Once you have removed the 4 screws holding the pump you can use a flashlight and screwdriver, knitting needle, pen etc. to hook the belt from the brush on to the pump shaft(sprocket) very easy. You may need to tilt and angle the pump a little to gt the belt over the lip on the sprocket. Like I did when I did this you will need to put the smooth belt on over the pump shaft first then put on the brush belt and screw the pump back into place (4 screws just snug because you can easily strip the plastic mounting holes) and put smooth belt on the electric motor shaft. you may need to stretch the belt a little because it has no gears it is just friction that turns the pump. Clean and dry everything this will make this repair last longer. If you will take a few minutes after each use to clean at least around the belt area they will last a long time. You can even put a belt conditioner on them for added life. Have a wonderful day!!!!!
