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.
Note: These posts addresses Bissell® carpet cleaners units that are ten years old and have no warranty by Bissel or any other warranty companies. Also all Bissell® product names will be in the color black.
