Question about Vacuums
My spotbot suction is greatly reduced. My hose is extremely dirty and I think it needs cleaned. Does any one know how to remove the hose? There appear to be 2 buttons holding it into place, but they do not move.
I have unscrewed the unit and pulled the top off, but still can not see a way to remove the hose.
SOURCE: Trouble with Spotbot
Just found out that the Bot I gave my daughter for Christmas LAST year didn't spray either - almost a year and she's never used it (and didn't let me know). Got them for two other daughters - those worked fine. I was pretty skeptical, but I tried the solutions above (holding down trigger in manual mode - and also removing and resetting the tank several times even though I didn't see bubbles). Voila - another success story. Have two daughters' bots going on MY carpet now - hmmm...why didn't I buy one for myself?

SOURCE: Spotbot is leaking...
either the "duck valve" on the dirty water tank or the clean water tank valve (in the screw top) are leaking. you can buy either or both from bissell for a few bucks.

Some of that water must have gotten inside amd shorted something. If this is less then 1 year, it would be under warranty. It iwll have to be taken apart and checked.

SOURCE: SpotBot: Brushed do not rotate
I have the same problem. I took the thing apart and tested the motor and it works just fine. The voltometer is telling me that there is no juice going to the motor. I tested the voltometer on other contacts in the vacuum and it's working fine. It seems every moving thing in the spotbot runs on 120v AC 60mhz, but like I said above; for some reason the spot bot isn't sending any electricity to the motor that makes the bristles go around. It has to be a controll board problem as the wires go strait from the board to the motor. Personally, I'm not even going to bother getting it fixed. I'll just stick with the hand cleaning tool. The darn automated cleaning cycles use too much solution anyway.

I had the same issue. After some research, I determined I was missing a black "duckbill" gasket on the bottom of the dirty water collection tank.
This caused reduced suction, and for the water to pool at the botom of the spotbot, thus leaking.
I purchased the gasket at Bissell for 1.39. The part number is 203-6646.
I purchased my SpotBot new from Target, and never remember seeing this black gasket, but the difference is night and day.
