    Spot bot is blowing not sucking

    This problem may be the same as I am having. The SpotBot recirculates the vacuum air back into the brush area when it is using the circular brushes. There is a short flexible hose deep inside the unit that connects from the clear plastic nozzles in the round brush unit to the end of the clear vacuum hose outside. Mine had a large tear in that flexible hose. This causes air to enter the hose and reduces the vacuum action, like cutting a hole in the side of your regular vacuum hose. The bad part is that I have not been able to find a replacement hose. It also takes a bit of repair experience to even get inside to where this hose is. Given the number of references to this type of issue, it appears that Bissell has a design flaw that causes the hose to break prematurely. Any response Bissell?

    Spot Bot leaves mold rings

    Hey, the mold ring is showing the carpet is now clean in comparison to the rest of the room.

    You may want to have the rest of the carpet cleaned using a BISSELL deep cleaning machine or by calling a professional.

    Clean bissell spot bot brush

    NONE of these answers apply to the question! The asker referred to the Bissell SPOTBOT, which doesn't have a push handle. I'd like to know how to remove the brush myself. I know how to remove the components but haven't been able to figure out how to remove the mechanism.

    I need an instruction manual or booklet

    I could not find a model 12005 but I did find a 1200. You'll find several different manuals for Spot Bots at the link below. There should not be any significant differences among the Spot Bot models.

    Leaving bigger dirtier wet spots after cleaning

    Sounds like the vacuum motor is defective or you have a clog in the vaccum line. Basically everything is running except the vacuum "Suction" cycle. Do you hear the "Suction" phase (light indicator) during operation when it loudens like a whine? That would be the vacuum phase. Is the dirty water reservoir clean, do you rinse it thoroughly when you empty it? Have you removed the hose assy and rinsed it out? I think it is still part of the auto cycle even if you don't use the manual tool.

    No Suction
    Possible Causes Remedies
    Tank is full. Empty tank.
    Dirty/Collection tank latch is not down. Push latch down, securely
    into place.
    Black Valve on the Dirty/Collection Tank is missing. Replace Black Valve into Dirty/ Collection tank.

    Usually there is a seal out of place, or a filter is clogged, so you lose suction.
