magicav8r: Thanks, Greg. Small shops stock parts. I thought maybe parts could only be obtained directly from Bissell.
gregory747: I got the pump belt at a small shop/service center on 25th ave here my town. The cost was 5 bucks.
magicav8r: Thank you. Great video. Will watch your other videos. Where did you get the pump belt from?
gregory747: Google bissell proheat 2 won't spray.
choose bissell's web site.
there are some filters and hoses to check
SockMonkey778: We followed the instruction on your video, and we found that nothing was clogged and my husband seems to think it is the water pump? Do you have any advice on that?
gregory747: Your question is beyond the scope of my video. But as a non-professional, I can only offer possibilities of your specific problem. If you bought it new recently then it may be under warranty. Craigslist fixit forum is a good forum to ask such a question. There is the Bissell website with support on the web. Google your question. When all else fails pay a professional to repair the machine, parts and service are their business.
Michele Botti: My machine puts dirty water back on the rug, what is that?
gregory747: There is not a lot of rust we're talking about, more like a crystalized soap. The heating unit where the clogged tube extends to the front, only goes into the heating unit about 1/4 inch and then a 90 degree bend. Using a drill bit by hand, removed the clogged crystals and then put together and it worked. I will mention this as a precaution, Don't put the dril bit on a power drill and drill a hole in the heating unit. If it takes time to work the rust/crystals loose by hand, then do so
guitargnx3boy: Thanks: mine became intermittent last night (I have a 2x, but imagine it share similar architecture). BTW, does the back need to come off the heating unit to dump the rust?
Vern Peryea: Thank-you for a great step by step repair. Am considering a purchase of one of these machines. Viewing your fine demonstration, the ease of repair leaves me less apprehensive. Always consider the cost of service to the overall cost of the product.
gregory747: you are correct, as I had not done this before, and reading other info on the internet I took it all apart not knowing having not done it before. It boils down to a simple removal of the plastic lines(2 ) for the heating unit and then the 1/8" drill bit to clean it out. I haven't used mine in a while since I made the video, I can't remember what is in there.
uoyuoy444: Thanks so much for posting however I dont see the need for disconnecting the electrical connectors or removing the cover and seven screws I did the reaming and cleaning of supply lines with out a lot of needless steps. thank you. Is there some way of getting to the bottom area to clean the supply lines at the spray front area? I seem to have a clog there too. Thanks again you really helped me out.
gregory747: I hope I have been helping some of you all out there. thank you for leaving a comment.
115543309: Thank you great job!!!!!!
gregory747: Thank you for commenting. I am glad to hear that you got your carpet cleaner working.
GIGGY BABY: THANKS SO MUCH got one off of craiglist the that said worked but didn't and really could not get another one or get this one fix. With your video i did it my self
marion soto: Add a light so we can see!!
gregory747: I am happy to be of service. Thank you for commenting.
Pat Bbb: Outstanding, if not a bit lengthy, video. Bottom line- you enabled me to fix my machine and I'm grateful for your work!
gregory747: I did the same thing I turned it on the belt burnt somewhat. So I took it apart again and put it back together correctly. On mine there is a red plastic retaining plate, I think I put it on wrong, but by doing it again and checking the shaft turns by hand it worked. Check your work, it turns by hand when installed correctly. I did the same thing....
kathleenfoster23: One pointer- remove water tank and cleaning solution tank before starting so you won't have to worry about leaks. I can get the belts on fine but the drive shaft won't turn, metal pump belt shaft is fine but the red shaft that both belts attach to won't move, any ideas? I got a loud clanking when I first started it and than a burning smell. Never did see old pump belt (non-toothed) before replacing it. First time I pulled it out in several years, I've only used it once before.
gregory747: I don't know what the problem with your Bissell is. It's not too hard to take apart. Mine was pumping through the hand tool as well but not to the floor just like yours. After taking the heater apart and cleaning it with a drill bit my Bissell worked again.
natabhai: Water not going to floor from main water bag ? Belts are fine and water is pumping from tools just not to the main brush though rotating won't dispense water. Any ideas to try before I try your method ? It worked fine a few weeks ago.
jeorge61: Thanks for making this vid, looks very helpful and should save me some trial and error time. Some parts of vid were very dark and hard to see what you were doing but again thanks ,I should be able to figure out how to disassemble the parts I could not see.
Sj McGue: Thank you
gregory747: I am glad someone watched the video your welcome.
Adis Abazovic: thank you
