Having problems with your Bissell SpotBot Hands-Free Compact Deep Cleaner - Silver ?

My spotbot is not spraying the solution. The brushes are working but no liquid is spraying.


Answers :

There is a very small, white water filter (approx. 3/8" in diameter/ 1/8" thick) inside the "seat" where the solution tank connects to the machine itself. Could very well be your problem if you are in a city environment, or any other situation where hard water is present. This is a very easy fix; discovered it when my wife experienced the exact same problem.

1) Make sure other causes have been eliminated, such as clogged nozzles, etc. (Refer to owners manual.)

2) Ensure that the solution tank is indeed seating properly with the machine, (a few small bubbles rise from the connection once made.)

3) Remove solution tank. With needle nose pliers or a very small screwdriver, GENTLY remove the white filter from the black, movable "seat" connection on the machine.

4) Run the machine on manual (without the filter) to determine if this is indeed your problem. (Don't run for an extended period of time this way if this actually is your problem. The filter is there for a reason!)

5) Simply wash the filter gently between thumb and fore-finger. Vinegar may be used, but simple tap water works as well. If clogged, you should feel grainy, hard water type scale/ lyme build-up when cleaning the filter.

6) Recycle the original filter or replace if necessary. (It would be very easy to make a new one without going through the hassle of dealing with OEM parts or Bissell. Just go to your local hardware store and they should be able to help you out with no problem.)

Voila! Spotbot works again.

Hope this helps!

Asking again. Better wording? My lightweight Bissell carpet shampooer is continually spraying cleaning solution. The sucking action works well but can't keep up. This unit does NOT HAVE A HEATER. This is a simple unit. Is there a cable going down the handle from the trigger? ( it feels like that's the way it works. Could the drain be plugged. Also it will only use 1/2 a tank of solution at a time. Then must be filled again

Bissell Powerease Lighweight Deep Cleaner. (Shampooer) After I fill the solution tank with the solution and water, I put it in it's slot, but all of the contents just come flowing out. I have only used this machine twice and it worked ok. You are supposed to press the trigger and the solution sprays out and then release the trigger when you want it to stop. But like I said, now I just put the tank on and all the contents come flowing out. I don't know what's wrong or how to stop it.

When using the floor configuration, I can't get the trigger to cause a spray of either water or cleaner. When using the tool configuration and the hand device with brushes etc, the spray works well with the hand trigger.


The trigger on the handle for tthe floor configuration has become loose or broken.
