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.

Why is bissell spotbot leaking water into motor


Warranty? Owner's manual? troubleshooting in manual? Contact customer service usually they are helpful. Sounds dangerous, hopefully they will want to know.

The top of my Spotbot separates from the bottom when picked up


There are a few screws that hold the two parts together. Check the housing and see if cracked around those screws.

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.

My spotbot is not spraying the solution. The brushes are working but no liquid is spraying.


There is a very small, white water filter (approx. 3/8" in diameter/ 1/8" thick) inside the "seat" where the solution tank connects to the machine itself. Could very well be your problem if you are in a city environment, or any other situation where hard water is present. This is a very easy fix; discovered it when my wife experienced the exact same problem.

1) Make sure other causes have been eliminated, such as clogged nozzles, etc. (Refer to owners manual.)

2) Ensure that the solution tank is indeed seating properly with the machine, (a few small bubbles rise from the connection once made.)

3) Remove solution tank. With needle nose pliers or a very small screwdriver, GENTLY remove the white filter from the black, movable "seat" connection on the machine.

4) Run the machine on manual (without the filter) to determine if this is indeed your problem. (Don't run for an extended period of time this way if this actually is your problem. The filter is there for a reason!)

5) Simply wash the filter gently between thumb and fore-finger. Vinegar may be used, but simple tap water works as well. If clogged, you should feel grainy, hard water type scale/ lyme build-up when cleaning the filter.

6) Recycle the original filter or replace if necessary. (It would be very easy to make a new one without going through the hassle of dealing with OEM parts or Bissell. Just go to your local hardware store and they should be able to help you out with no problem.)

Voila! Spotbot works again.

Hope this helps!

Spray does not soak the carpet like it used to.


You probally have a clogged line. Either take it apart yourself and manually unclogg each line (requires a compressor) or take it to a local vac shop and have them do it.

SpotBot: all lights flashing!


Per the manual, periodically you should clean the rubber lining in the dirty water tank(it comes out). I found mine a little dirty, but after cleaning it, it solved my 'all lights flashing' problem.
