Bissell® 8010 Carpet Cleaner
Phillip #2 screwdriver
Portable Vacuum Cleaner

We own the Bissell® 801004 Carpet Cleaner and after ten years the parts are not available. We acquired the unit used and the carpet cleaner worked well for another seven years. We have fur-babies (Basenji dogs) and they both shed regularly. Seven years later, the Bissell carpet cleaner keeps shutting off and overheats.

This post shows the twelve steps to remove the Bissell® handle, brush face plates and base cover. 

Note: These posts addresses Bissell® carpet cleaners units that are ten years old and have no warranty by Bissel® or any other warranty companies. 

Internet blogs stated that the pumps parts for Bissell® model 801004 were in the handle. 

Now, remove the Bissell® Tool Caddy with Cord Wrap and Release was removed and placed back on.

All the pumps and motor was in the bottom case. The handle was held by two Bissell® Screws & Nuts on the Bissell® Tool Caddy.

When taken apart only plastic parts were in the handle. If I had looked at the on-line schematic, I could have save that time I spent on removing these parts.

The Bissell® Window Base (Floor Nozzle Window) is clear plastic plate has two front screws and the back metal screw is Bissell® #8 x 3/4 inch long metal screws. These screws were removed using a #2 Phillip screwdriver.

The Bissell® Black Bissell Hood Main Housing has dog hair along the sides that needed to be clean as not to restrict the water flow.

In the Black Bissell® Hood Main Housing are four Bissell #8 x 3/4 inch long metal screws. But in this repair only three screws holding the Bissell® Hood Main Housing.
