SOURCE: Bissell pro heat 2x multi surface carpet cleaner making spots

maybe there's not enough vacuum or it hasn't been primed enough. I have a proheat that drove me crazy till I started leaving the heat switch on. I get wads of carpet fiber that mat around brush and spit out on the carpet, so I frequently remove them. I'm just wondering if after you empty the water, it may not have built up the suction. Good luck! hope this may be helpful

SOURCE: how can i clean the hose of my bissell spot bot?

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: leaving bigger dirtier wet spots after cleaning

Your Spot Bot is not suctioning up the dirty water. Empty the waste tank and look underneath it. Remove the black rubber gasket right under the tank and rinse it out. Then make sure you put it back snugly into the fitted crevice. Try cleaning over that spot again. You should see the dirty water being suction out and the finished area should not be as wet as before.

SOURCE: The hose on my spot bot has torn

I called one of the local service centres to order one 2 months ago, still haven't heard back. Last weekend was our city's curb giveaway weekend and I got a busted Bissell Pro Heat 2X Turbo which I removed the hose from. You can order them online, just not from Bissell directly.
Cut the old hose off, you won't need it.
You have to disassemble the unit mostly. Several screws on the bottom, several under the collection tank, etc... The tubing is held together with Brass tubing clamps, they're not glued. The inner hose needs to run inside, through to the outer channel underneath the 90degree bend that the outer hose plugs into and will connect to a T shaped 3 way hose connector. My hose was wider and needed the holes to be widened. If you have to use the same outer hose connector, the coiled hose will twist in, once you remove the old hose but the new hose will need to be siliconed or glued with something that will seal it.
My new salvaged hose had the handle on it already.
It's not a pleasant procedure, have a shower after because you may get sprayed.
That being said, this process is doable, but it isn't a 5 minute fix. It took about 40 minutes all and all.

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.

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.


Poor suction can be caused by obstructions, poor air flow or a compomise in the air flow (hole in the hose). Since you have started with that I would next look at all filters and clean them. First check for suction at the motor, then at accessory hose and then the base. this will lead you to a suction issue. If your baelt has not been replaced in the last 6-12 mo I would change that too. check to make sure your carpet setting is coorect for the carpet being cleaned.

Hi, we have a Kenwood VC620 Vaccum Cleaner. Can you plz let us know how we can remove the cylinder to clean it up. Thanks.


  • hi i think
  • If the spot remover you use alters the color of your carpet, try touching up small places with artists' acrylic paint. If acrylic paint doesn't work, try using a felt-tip marker or a permanent-ink marker of the appropriate color. Go slowly, and blend the color into the fibers.
  • To raise depressions left in a carpet by heavy furniture, try steaming. Hold a steam iron close enough for steam to reach the carpet, but don't let the iron touch the fibers, especially if they are synthetic, because they could melt. Lift the fibers by scraping them with the edge of a coin or spoon.

We have the Eureka EZ Kleen upright. We have suction through the hoses but not the main vacuum. The brush turns fine but the vacume does not **** anything up.


THE HOSE BETWEEN THE DETACHABLE WAND AND THE BRUSH ROLLER AREA MUST BE CLOGGED WITH CARPET FIBERS. CLEAN IT OUT AND IT SHOULD WORK.

Spotbot is leaking...


Mine constantly leaked as well but I found that if I remove the container will the solution in it after every use it doesn't leak anymore. I store my container (upright - nozzle face up) under the sink with my other cleaning products and when I need to use the machine I pull it back out, pop it in and clean.
