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.

    Ours started making a loud grinding noise and aparently one of the clear suction nozzles on the bottom had broken off and gotten wedged in the machine. After removing and buying a replacement nozzle from bissell for a couple dollars, back in business. If the noise is excessively loud, I would avoid running the unit until repaired.

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

You will need to pull the roller out and clean it. I think some of the strings are tangle up at the end of this roller. (Most rollers will come apart at the end for cleaning.) Make sure that the strings are not tangle up on the belt pulley as well. I hope this will help you.

Spot Bot leaking water from reservoir through brushes


make sure that your collection tank is empty and correctly attached. If it is full, it will shoot water on the spot, but not **** it up several times in the cleaning process leaving a large wet puddle bigger than the original spot.

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.

Trouble with Spotbot


My problem wasn't a problem with a new unit. We have had ours over a year and it has been flawless up until a few days ago. Ours stopped pumping cleaner for both the manual hose and the automatic section. Other solutions of priming the pump described make sense, but that was not my problem. When I would press the manual hose button a very short squirt of liquid would occur and then nothing. When I looked at the receptacle for the cleaner tank on the Spot bot side, there was a gray fuzz in there. I tried cleaning that with an old toothbrush and it came right out. It was a filter of some sort. It was gray on one side, black on the other and about the size of a dime. I guess over time the filter has gotten clogged and didn't allow a full flow of liquid. I removed the filter and put the tank back in. The unit works perfectly. I am going to try to clean the filter, put it back in and see if the unit will work. If not, the filter is history.
