Need Spot Bot Replacement Hose

The hard plastic end of of my Spot Bot hose broke - it physically snapped into 2 pieces. I mean the end that snaps into the holder that says "Push button and Pull Grip to Remove Hose for Manual Operation".

I have looked all over online for a replacement, but have not been able to find anywhere that I can buy a replacement hose. I started with the Bissell site, and have looked at lots of places since there. Do you know where I can get a replacement hose?

    I am having the same problem with mine, except I have a Little Green Proheat. I think they have the same hose assembly though. I accidentally stepped on mine and it snapped in half too! I have tried gluing it but it breaks and leaks! I hop e we find a solution.....

SOURCE: clogged hose...

Hi!

Low suction, poor pickup, or no suction may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the Dirt Container, check for clogs. Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet. Empty Dirt Container. Check Upper Tank and Louvers for build up or clogs. Check to make sure Louvers are installed correctly. To unlock the Louvers, grasp the rim and turn toward the left. Pull straight down to remove. If the Louvers are missing or not locked into place, check and clear the tube in the center of the Dirt Container. Remove the Twist ‘n Snap Hose from the vacuum by turning to the left. Check the Suction Inlet, Hose and Hose Wand for clogs. Remove any clogs from the hose using a long, narrow object. Check the Foot Hose for clogs. If needed, remove the screw attaching the Hose Wand Base to the vacuum. Straighten the Foot Hose and unclog with a long, narrow object. If the clog persists, then check the Rotating Floor Brush the Air Passageway for obstructions.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

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.

Spot bot is blowing not sucking


This problem may be the same as I am having. The SpotBot recirculates the vacuum air back into the brush area when it is using the circular brushes. There is a short flexible hose deep inside the unit that connects from the clear plastic nozzles in the round brush unit to the end of the clear vacuum hose outside. Mine had a large tear in that flexible hose. This causes air to enter the hose and reduces the vacuum action, like cutting a hole in the side of your regular vacuum hose. The bad part is that I have not been able to find a replacement hose. It also takes a bit of repair experience to even get inside to where this hose is. Given the number of references to this type of issue, it appears that Bissell has a design flaw that causes the hose to break prematurely. Any response Bissell?

Spot bot leaking when using manual hose


This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.

If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.

My Bissel Spotbot will only let me use the Manual Mode, when I try to push "Set in Stain" or "Surface" stain the light won't turn on. My children were playing with it, but I...


There is a small magnet in the end of the hose. Under the phillips screw and plastic cover. Mine rusted to bits and stopped tripping the switch. A bit of a super strong hard drive magnet siliconed back in the end of the hose and all was fine.

there is a very weak plastic plunger under the trigger on the hose, if that is the one you are speaking of. mine broke shortly after i bought it. i just bought a replacement hose and used epoxy to build up the trigger for holding it's position better without snapping off.

How can i put on the snap ring on an eloctolux vacuum hose on the end piece of the hose; it is a swivel end and an older vacuum cleaner plastic canister type


The snap ring is generally found on a Canadian made LUX AP series prior to 1982 and it is in fact a coil spring you must leave the wiring off the handle. Be sure the steel cap and rubber o ring are on the tip of the hose. Slide the handle onto the hose with the hose tip facing upright. then with a small flat screwdriver separate the hooked tip of the spring from its body and run your screwdriver around the spring,feeding it into the groove inside the hose handle, spiraling as you go. similar to how you would feed a key onto a key ring. Before inserting the wire cover try to swivel thew handle it should rotate smoothly. Be very gentle inserting the wire cover pin as it will crack the handle. Use gentle pressure with pliers to start it , then squeeze it into place with your plier jaws fully open.

My hose cracked on my ep238


I've had the hose brake on this vac at both top and bottom several times. You can pinch the ears that hold the hose assembly to the wand and vac connection and get at the piece that the hose screws into. Remove the old piece, cut the hose cleanly and screw back in, then snap back together. They don't seem to have this hose anymore and since the vac also has problems with its cord assembly I'd say your best bet is a new vac once the hose can't be fixed anymore.

I need to replace vacuum hose


If you have a vise, put the end in to and you want to just squeeze it so you can get to the 2 tabs inside and using 2 flat blade screwdrivers, pry outward and the hose should come out of the cuff. Sometimes you can just cut and rewire, but watch and match colored wires to the right colors, mix them up and you would have a electrical mess. When you put it back together, push the cuff down until you hear it snap into place.

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.

Electrolux Renaissance Hose Replacement


Notice how the hose has a groove just around the outer edge of the gray plastic near the white plastic insert. The hose is held into the handle buy two "tongues" inserted into this groove. One of these tongues is on the end of the top plastic piece of the handle. The second is on the piece of plastic that is slid into the little hole at the base of the handle and it is visible in the picture.

To remove the first, you'll have to remove the two screws in the top of the handle that hold the top plastic piece. This can be a challenge unless you have the right tool. It's essentially a hex-star allen wrench tool that is required, I'm guessing about 1/16 inch. I had one in my tool box that fit. Remove the screws and pop the top plate off. This frees the first tongue from the groove. Now, just get a screw driver (or use your finger) to press the plastic piece inserted in the hole at the bottom of the handle. Press from the "t" side and this should slide right out. Now your hose will slide right out of the handle and you can replace the old with new. Re-insert the small plastic insert, and refasten the top plastic piece of the handle and you're good to go.
