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.

Spot Bot leaves mold rings


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

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.

Clean the spot bot hose, it looks dirty.


My hose was filled with black mold, nearly from end to end, because I didn't clean it properly a year ago, which was the last time I used it. Here's how I got every speck of grime and mold out of the hose, and brought it back to looking brand new!

1. I placed the Spotbot on the counter on one side of my deep utility sink.
2. I unwrapped the hose from the body of the machine and held the mouth of the hose low, close to the sink drain.
3. I ran the water until it was scalding hot, and put the hose mouth up to the stream, keeping it low. I filled it for 3 seconds.
4. Then I poured spashless bleach down the hose mouth for a 2-3 second pour. Add more water if needed.
5. With a portion of water in the hose, I swung it back and forth, moving the bleach water all over the affected areas.
6. I continued to fill the hose with water and bleach(2-3 times), until I had a 1.5 inch reservoir in the dirty water basin to act as a suction plug.
7. I plugged my utility sink, and filled it with 3 inches of hot water, which I used to continue to fill my hose and to push out the air bubbles.
8. When the hose was full from end to end with bleach water and no air bubbles, but the reservoir remained at 1.5 inches full, I filled a plastic jar with 3 inches of water (for stability), and pinched the mouth end of the hose together upright into the jar. I placed the jar directly across from the Spotbot on the counter, on the other side of the utility sink. This means each end of the hose is elevated, and the body of it is hanging in the utility sink.
9. I left it like this all day and overnight. 22 hours later, I returned and the hose was pristine! I backwashed the hose and the dirty water reservoir out 4 times and hung the hose over the faucet to dry.
10. Hope this helps you!

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.
