Bissell® 8010 Carpet Cleaner

We own the Bissell® Model # 801004 Carpet Cleaner. Parts are not available any longer for this carpet cleaner because this it is over ten years old. The first owner, barely used the machine and we acquired it for another seven years. We have fur babies (canines) and they both shed regularly. The only regular maintenance was cleaning the water tank after afterwards and removing the dogs hair on the bottom side of the unit. Once the motor belt was replaced a simple matter but it took some time to find it in the repair manual. Now seven years later, the Bissell® carpet cleaner keeps shutting off and overheats. These nine posts will show how the Bissell® Carpet Cleaner was repaired. Internet links will added to all these post to add another aspect of how people repair their machines.
