Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Spotbot won't shut off, handpiece won't work.

When I run the Bissel Spotbot I am unable to use the manual hand cleaner, it will not work when trying to select it from the controls. When I try to turn on the unit to use the main system it starts up, but when you hit the stop button it will not stay off, but will stay off as long as I hold the stop button. I must unplug it to keep it off.

Thinking it has to do with the control panel I was looking into trying to get to the panel, but i'm at a loss on that. It's already out of warranty of course, so that's the only reason i'm getting into the system.

    I couldn't get the manual mode to work out of the box. When I called Bissell's tech center they offered to replace it. But due to the turnaround time, I'm just going to take it back to the store where I purchased it. If its out of warranty, you can find authorized repair centers on their website.



    Sounds like its a pretty common problem.

The brushes will only work if the handle is released and the ProHeat vacuum is running . There is a micro switch inside the lower handle that switches on the DC carpet brush motor. The DC power for the motor comes from a Bridge Rectifier on the PC Board. petedcurtis@gmail.com

You probally have a clogged line. Either take it apart yourself and manually unclogg each line (requires a compressor) or take it to a local vac shop and have them do it.

SOURCE: Accessing motor Miele Flamenco II

I had the same thing happen to my S251. Open up the vac. There is a third hidden screw in the groove where the accessory door is hinged. It's really well hidden, use a flashlight. Once its open, you'll have access to the power cord and you can test its conductivity. I didn't really believe it could be something as pedestrian as that, but the retractable power cord takes a lot of abuse, and eventually it fails. Replaced mine and the vac works great.

Hi Paul,

I just want to make sure that you still would like help with your Bissell. As you may see from my profile, when I help someone out, I always spend considerable time answering questions, taking pictures, and really making sure that you know how to fix the problem. Before I spend so much time doing this, I like to follow up and make sure that A. there's a real customer I'm answering, and B. that you haven't already fixed your machine. If you'd like me to walk you through this troubleshooting, please just add a comment here on the repair page.

Thanks,

Chris Jones

Why is bissell spotbot leaking water into motor


Warranty? Owner's manual? troubleshooting in manual? Contact customer service usually they are helpful. Sounds dangerous, hopefully they will want to know.

The top of my Spotbot separates from the bottom when picked up


There are a few screws that hold the two parts together. Check the housing and see if cracked around those screws.

My Bissell Spotbot leaks dirty water


Zupernoc... I was having the same exact problems with my Spotbot Pet that you were having. I ordered the duckbill gasket (1.39 from bissell.com) and so far, so good! Thanks so much for sharing!!! And just for the record...not only was there no duckbill gasket on the unit when I purchased it, it's not even listed in the owner's manual as being part of the unit. Yet if you search for replacement parts on Bissell parts, there it is. Strange! Again, thanks for sharing. Saved me from trashing the thing and purchasing something new.

There is a small magnet in the end of the hose. Under the phillips screw and plastic cover. Mine rusted to bits and stopped tripping the switch. A bit of a super strong hard drive magnet siliconed back in the end of the hose and all was fine.

Solution not coming out


The solution is to throw the piece of junk out! Last week my BISSEL upright rug shampooer stopped spraying and I did all the *fixes* that I could find on the internet, short of new parts. It's in the Trash now. Today my BISSEL SpotBot stopped spraying...I've used it maybe 10 times. BISSEL makes junk, IMO.
