Question about Bissell SpotBot Robotic Wet/Dry Vacuum

1 Answer

Unit starts and immediately shuts off

I fill up the spotbot with the appropriate mix of water and solution and turn it on. It starts and then after a few seconds just stops and the lights all flash. How can this be fixed?

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.

The cleaning solution water wont flow thru the unit. What do i do?


First, have you check the the owners manual? You can find them at http://www.bissell.com/SearchResults.aspx?searchtext=spotbot&mode=userguides

Possibilities:
Spray Tip clogged
Clean/Solution tank is out of fluid
Clean/Solution tank is not inserted into the unit securely

Solutions:
- Clean Spray Tip
- Fill Clean/Solution Tank.
- Gently press the Clean/Solution Tank until you see “bubbles”
coming from the base of the tank.

When I set it to manual, the sprayer won't spray. The sprayer light is on though


Hello, I hope this helps you...1st, rinse out the little filter that sits in the hole where you place your "Cleaning Solution" tank. It's a small piece of felt. If this gets loaded with dirt or soap...the machine WILL NOT SPRAY. If this doesnt work and your machine is out of warranty...there is an easy fix for about $20 Unplug the unit. Remove the screw under the clean solution tank, remove that plate and remove the two screws under it...next remove the 4 screws under the "Dirty Water" tank. Lift off the top of the machine and you will see a little red pump under the "clean solution" tank area. Remove the 2 screws and clamps holding it in and replace the pump. (Just do a Google search for "SPOTBOT Pump" until you find one.) That will do it. After replacing the pump, fill the clean solution tank..check for leaks and let the unit sit overnight. The pump has to fill with solution to work...

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!

No spray in hands-free mode.


Hi, I had the same problem ... I tried hot water for 30 minutes with no sucess ... then opened the unit and could see nothing real obvious in the solution hoses ... so took the main hose off the valve from the solution tank ... then plugged in the unit over a towel (be careful) ... and selected clean ... the valve opened and a bunch of fluid flushed through - so I knew the valve was ok. I then blew through the remaining hoses and did seem to get some flow .... and reassembeled the unit ... and filled the tank with vinegar solution ... the manual spray immediately cleared with a bunch of dark flakes ... the regular brush spray worked fine.

Bissell spotbot: leaking the dirty water from bottom. I took the bottom plate off and there is a really crappy rubber seal. I think it is leaking from there.


I had the same issue. After some research, I determined I was missing a black "duckbill" gasket on the bottom of the dirty water collection tank.

This caused reduced suction, and for the water to pool at the botom of the spotbot, thus leaking.

I purchased the gasket at Bissell for 1.39. The part number is 203-6646.

I purchased my SpotBot new from Target, and never remember seeing this black gasket, but the difference is night and day.

Where is the filter on the Bissell Spotbot?


#17 is a brush, #10 is the pump #2036659. If there is a filter, it is probably on the tank inlet. Most times when these units go bad, running a mix of water and vinegar to free up any clogs sometimes will fix things. If not, replacing it may be your cheapest option.
