    How do I replace the belt on my Bissell ProHeat carpet cleaner

    I have taken 2 screws out o the clear cover on top of the shampooer

    hank12's solution to the "replacing the belt" problem on the Bissell model 8910 sounded great except...I can not get access to the other two skrews that are deeper inside the machine on the pump. The skrewdriver is at a 45 degree angle and it is impossible to reach them. Any suggestions? This seems impossible!

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!!!!!

I have a Bissell model 7950 so I am not sure if they are exactly the same but here's what I did to replace the pump belt. There are two red retainers holding the brush assembly in place. Remove the retainers and the brush assembly should move freely except for the belt on the right hand side. Remove that belt and you will see a shaft that holds the brush belt and the pump belt. Slip the smooth pump belt on and then put the brush belt back on and secured the red retainers. Turn the machine over and you will be able to pull the belt up over the drive shaft. I replaced the pump belt, started to clean the carpet and then the brush belt broke. At least I know know how to fix it!! Hope this helps.

Model Bissell Carpet Cleaner


I just needed the same info and found the model number - you have to turn the whole unit over. It's underneath the the vacuum unit, near the brush. Hope this helps.
