Having problems with your Bissell SpotBot Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Trouble with Spotbot

\015 I just bought a Bissell Spotbot and when I set it up, it doesn't spray from either the auto mode or the manual mode. The troubleshooting only offers to make sure the tank is in securely by gently pushing and seeing bubbles. When I gently push, there are no bubbles, but it seems to be on securely. Any advice?\015

My problem wasn't a problem with a new unit. We have had ours over a year and it has been flawless up until a few days ago. Ours stopped pumping cleaner for both the manual hose and the automatic section. Other solutions of priming the pump described make sense, but that was not my problem. When I would press the manual hose button a very short squirt of liquid would occur and then nothing. When I looked at the receptacle for the cleaner tank on the Spot bot side, there was a gray fuzz in there. I tried cleaning that with an old toothbrush and it came right out. It was a filter of some sort. It was gray on one side, black on the other and about the size of a dime. I guess over time the filter has gotten clogged and didn't allow a full flow of liquid. I removed the filter and put the tank back in. The unit works perfectly. I am going to try to clean the filter, put it back in and see if the unit will work. If not, the filter is history.
I should have know it as former Pocess Technician in a chemical plant... a pump needs enough inlet pressure so it can actually move the liquid (at first use the pump is dry). I put the machine on a chair and the manual spray on the ground, I also remove the filter (reservoir connection) and while holding the manual spray lifted the tank a couple of times. after 2 minutes it stared spaying. (I put the filter/ sponge back) so by these 3 manouvres you increase the inlet pressure of the internal pump. Now the pump has fluid it has no problems and is working as it should.
