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

Manual Mode doesn't work

\015 I just bought one of these and when I tried the manual mode as stated in the manual it won't run. The green LED just flashes and it won't start up. I've tried removing the grip first then it turning on and also turning it on then removing the grip. Either way yields the same result....nothing.\015\012I took this one back and bought another with the same result. I've tried pushing all the buttons and nothing makes the manual mode run. Either I'm doing something wrong or there is a common problem with the two of them. I haven't tried customer support yet because it sounds like a waste of time. If there's no quick fix or hint as to what I may be doing wrong, this one is going back too and I won't be buying another.\015

OK, so I had the same problem. I had not used the manual mode in quite a very long time. Went to use the hose the other day and nothing. Blinking light and no noise. Came here for an answer and iceray123 is on the right track.

On my bot, the switch is on the right side of the hose grip, so it's facing you when you look in the holder. It's a black, rubbery looking "teardrop".

I happened to have some electrical contact cleaner and gave it a squirt. Moved the switch in and out, working the fluid in there to clean out the gunk and the contacts.

Presto! She's hummed back to life!

If you don't have a can of contact cleaner you could possibly spray a little bit of WD-40. According to the WD-40 Job Site, it's also "A Great Contact Cleaner" **Your results may vary**

Hope this helps!
(Now back to cleaning)
There is no reset fuse or thermo fuse that will reset the function. The reason it states in the user manual to remove the grip is because there is a button inside that slot to realease the micro switch. If that micro switch is shorted/open, then it will not activate the manual/hose cleaning function. It is not an easy fix. You have to take the machine completely apart and try to fix the contacts on the switch or replace the switch (which is easier but still not simple). Hope this helps. In the case of the other solution on here where the machine worked after a few hours is because the switches contacts somehow came together when it was avtivated it the second time. This is not umcommon for the switches the do that.

My Dyson vacuum works fine for cleaning the rug but the hose doesnt get any suction at all. I removed the hose and all the parts around it that I could and dont see any clogs or broken pieces.

I bought an old Juki Baby Lock 418 at a garage sale. It will sew for 3 or 4 inches and then seems to be off timing and locks up. I have no instruction manual. Is there a manual available for this old machine? I would prefer a downloadable manual because I already have money invested in the machine which doesn't seem to work. It was suppose to have been gone over at a repair shop before I purchased it and was told that it worked. .

Vaccuum issue I just bought a Eureka upright model 5892 BVZ, my concern is, I bought it on sale (floor model) and it didn't have a manual with it. I took it home and tried it, and although it appears to be working very well there is not dirt in the catch bin on the front of the unit. I tried the hose w/attachment and again it worked very well in picking up the cat hair, but where does the hair and the dirt go, I am afraid it is spitting it back out somewhere since I can not see anything in the c
