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

I HAVE A BISSELL PROHEAT CARPET CLEANER AND WAS WONDERING IF THERE IS AN ATTACHMENT TO CLEAN TILE FLOORS. THANK YOU BONNIE UPDYKE


you should check the website of the manufacturer, be carefull as the grout between the tiles is the weakest link to keeping your floors solid...you may damage or fade the color of u'r grout if it is not protected...and if it is protected and has been sealed with a protectant, then you may be removing the sealant with the extreme hot steam from the carpet cleaner.

Bissell 7950


appears that you may have all the belts in place but the beater brush is jammed and it can't spin.. the jam may also be blocking the vacuum port so that you don't get any suction to that area. I suggest you unplug the vac, then open the base section to gain access to the beater bar and check to make sure the brush can spin freely.. also check that the drive belt is properly seated on the shaft and that there are no obstructions in the vacuum port.. hope this helps you..

Broken Smart Mix Dial-How to replace


You will have to remove the top, the knob screws on but has a stop tab. Is the plastic below the knob ok, if not then you need to replace the top cover. After you replace the knob, then put the piston on from underneath, have it set to water only selection, then put the top cover back on.
