Question about Bissell SpotBot Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum
Is it possible to replace just the hose on the Bissell Spotbot? The plastic on the hose has cracked. I only found one website that made reference to the hose and it was "out of stock".
I found a site that carrys them, not sure if they are out because just as I was about to order one I decided to try and fix mine since the crack was right up next to the handle. http://www.svcvacuum.com/bissell/steamer_hose.htm
All I did was unscrew the two screws where the button is for releasing the water on the hand piece. I thin squeezed the clamp together to remove the water hose. Once that was removed I cut the hose and then PRYED out the part of the hose in the hand piece. I then cut the hose down where the crack was. Feed the "water hose" back through the hole in the handle (I heated it with a lighter just a tiny bit to make it soft and worked it through the hole which I just enlarged a slight bit) and with pliers work it back on. Don't forget the clamp. Next just work the outter hose back into the handle but make sure to use a glue or silicone sealer or both.
Even if you get a new hose Im not sure it will come with the handle. To connect the hose to the Machine part just push in that little plastic "dot" and pull out the hose at the same time. Then remove the old hose by the directions above. There is no need to remover the inner clear hose from the machine part, only the handle

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.

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.
