Question about Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat Scotchgard Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Water won't release when lever pulled

I've had this problem before. Took the machine to a local service center and had it serviced for $50. The servicing consisted of removing clogs of pet hair, etc. from somewhere. If this is going to be a frequent occurrence, I need to know how to find the clogs snd remove them. I've cleaned all of the filters as prescribed in the owner's manual, and I have the top of the unit almost off to see what other clogs are present.
]
Any help with this service procedure would be most appreciated.

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

Bissell website had this link in the faq pages-------

To get your machine functioning properly, please make sure the power cord is plugged into a working outlet. Check the inner and outer circular filters and the post-motor filter for debris. Also, check the upper-tank louvers, this can be removed and rinsed. Reduced air-flow from the dirty filters or from clogs in the hose will put greater stress on the motor, increasing the possibility for overheating.

If you continue to experience no power, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center. To locate your nearest BISSELL Authorized Service Center, go to the BISSELL Homepage at: http://www.bissell.com. Select the "Customer Service" tab at the top of the page and then select "Service Centers" from the drop down menu. Enter your zip code to perform your search.

You can also locate a Service Center by phone, 24 hours a day, by calling 1-800-237-7691 and choosing option #1.

I hope this helps
