I'm wanting to know if anyone has retrofitted an electric water pump on a Bissel pro-heat carpet cleaner as a replacement for the incredibly delicate and frequently-disintigrating plastic impeller that's built into the pump and driven by the main vacuum motor via rubber belt.

But I see that there is no discussion catagory for such things as vacuum cleaners and carpet cleaners so I probably won't get much help here for this retrofit project so I'll probably just search ebay for a suitable electric pump that I'll probably find by a vendor in China.

Yeah I was actually looking for repair tips for my Shark Rocket DeluxePro HV321 Upright Vacuum. Sadly it's not part of the main category.

Microwaves are going that way too.  I don't even take jobs on them.  The reason, cheaper to replace the repair.  Other than Dyson, Oreck and then the super-premium machines there isn't much money made on small appliance repair, so most don't learn it.

  Though if you post in a general category you may get some help.  I would look for vacuum cleaner centric repair boards.
THE issue with the shark the second poster has may get help, the first issue is a retrofit and that is very specialized.

     

 

Whither the vacuum cleaners?
