The Bissell ProHeat Pet Deep Cleaner is a carpet deep-cleaning system used to remove dirt and pet debris from carpets and other surfaces. The unit includes a built-in hot water heater to increase the cleaning results, as well as 12 rows of brushes, microbial protection and a 12-amp motor. If either the small or large belt on the carpet cleaner becomes damaged, cracked, split or broken, replace the belt. Removing the old belt(s) to put on a new one should only be performed by an adult when the vacuum is unplugged from the power supply.

Lay the machine down on its side with the cord side down on the ground.

Step 4

Use the screwdriver to remove the black screws holding the clear end cap on the side of the vacuum. Be careful not to drop the screws into the vacuum. Lift off the clear cap and set it aside.
