SOURCE: brushes will not spin

There is a motor for the brushes, it may be bad. If no suction, there is a gasket on top of the back cover that may be missing leaving a gap and losing suction.

SOURCE: My spotbot is not spraying the solution.

There is a very small, white water filter (approx. 3/8" in diameter/ 1/8" thick) inside the "seat" where the solution tank connects to the machine itself. Could very well be your problem if you are in a city environment, or any other situation where hard water is present. This is a very easy fix; discovered it when my wife experienced the exact same problem.

1) Make sure other causes have been eliminated, such as clogged nozzles, etc. (Refer to owners manual.)

2) Ensure that the solution tank is indeed seating properly with the machine, (a few small bubbles rise from the connection once made.)

3) Remove solution tank. With needle nose pliers or a very small screwdriver, GENTLY remove the white filter from the black, movable "seat" connection on the machine.

4) Run the machine on manual (without the filter) to determine if this is indeed your problem. (Don't run for an extended period of time this way if this actually is your problem. The filter is there for a reason!)

5) Simply wash the filter gently between thumb and fore-finger. Vinegar may be used, but simple tap water works as well. If clogged, you should feel grainy, hard water type scale/ lyme build-up when cleaning the filter.

6) Recycle the original filter or replace if necessary. (It would be very easy to make a new one without going through the hassle of dealing with OEM parts or Bissell. Just go to your local hardware store and they should be able to help you out with no problem.)

Voila! Spotbot works again.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: SpotBot: Brushed do not rotate

I had the same problem everything worked except the brushes wouldn't move. I took the top off and tested the leads to the motor and it wasn't getting any power. So I took the power board out and traced it to a large ceramic 5 watt 1.5 ohm resistor right in the middle of the board. I got a replacement resistor from a local electronic store and soldered it in. So for less than a dollar its working perfectly again. Also I put some electical tape over the speaker to quiet it down. It seems funny to have a very very loud beep to tell you when a very loud machine is done.

Brushes on my hoover spinscrub model F7411900 wont spin


vanger cheva in post 1 got the correct answer. I just disassembled my f7411900 with some difficulty and took the turbine apart. Sure enough the bearing on the shaft was froze from rust. I was able to free it up in a vice and screw driver big enough to grab and turn the middle of the bearing. I used 3-1 oil and it now is smooth again. Not sure for how long. It was then I found the instructions by vanger above. There is no belt in this unit. The turbine is driven by water that turns the brushes.

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.

My spotbot cleaner is no longer spraying water


I had the same problem, and found that the culprit was that the small filter element. about the size of a dime, that sits arount the nozzle activator (pin that depresses the clean water nozzel) was clogged with "gunk", and prevented cleaning solution from flowing into the unit.. It is easy to remove with a pair of tweezers or needle nose pliars.. rise it under water and reseat in the unit. You shoudl be aboe to perform the whole process in under a minute. This has happend to me several times... and am surprised the filter is not mentioned in the manual.

Spot Bot leaking water from reservoir through brushes


make sure that your collection tank is empty and correctly attached. If it is full, it will shoot water on the spot, but not **** it up several times in the cleaning process leaving a large wet puddle bigger than the original spot.

Help for free???? my spin brushes won't spin


I have the 7443-940, and on this one, the brushes are powered by the water coming from the water pump. If there is no water in the unit, they will not spin. I do NOT know if yours is the same way, but it's worth trying it out.

Within an Hour my SpotBot stopped working


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.
