Well... it's sub optimal but this is what I did, run hot water into the sink, add a few table spoons of bleach and run the hose along the edge of the water to slowly **** it into the hose (the tank fills very rapidly and the auto shut off will activate). You will want to run 4 or 5 tanks of waste to get the bulk of the gunk along the walls out and this will also get rid of the serratia growing (red stuff). If you dangle the hose in a u down the front of the sink and shut off the machine you can catch about a pint of water and bleach solution in the hose and roll it around inside the hose then let it sit for awhile and finish by sucking it into the waste tank, not perfect but my hose is much cleaner.

How To Replace The Hose On A Bissell Spot Bot, SpotBot, and Little Green...


Replacing the Suction Hose on a Bissell SpotBot can be a challenging repair. We frequently get this question, how do you remove the old hose, so we decided to shoot a video repair demonstration on how to replace the hose assembly.
This repair works for all Bissell SpotBot models in the 1200 Series, as well as the 7887, and some Little Green Machines.
If you need to purchase a new Hose Assembly, you may find it on our website below:Bissell SpotBot Hose Assembly Part 203-6665

Here's the video showing how to replace the hose:





Please feel free to email us with any questions or clarification requests, and please be so kind and rate the video helpful if you found it to be.
Thanks so much,

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?

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.

Need to clean hose.


I filled a bowl with hot bleach water and sucked the water up. It cleaned the hose pretty well (along with the gunk that was stuck in the hand wand). Mine was filthy. It looked like it had mold growing in it. Then I ran several rounds of hot water through the hose. I alternated hot water & bleach. Did this about 8 times. It is not perfect, but it sure does look a lot better. 90% of the gunk is gone.

I bought a spot bot last year. It makes a grinding noise when I clean my rugs. Yes there is liquid in it.
Where can I have it checked on?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Depending on what you paid for it would determine the cost of repair and or labor, typically the item has a one year factory warranty and you would have to check with the manufacturer to see what the warranty is and I will list the Bissell Factory Manufacturer below. The grinding noise could be that you have a build up of dirt in the motor or a broken fan blade or fan, and sometimes it may be cheaper to replace it than to repair it due to the cost of the part and the labor to install. Just a suggestion….
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
