Model 7887 spot bot will not spray cleaner nor suction up cleaner

Posted by on

  • rsimon5 Apr 07, 2011

    The motor is running fine. I think the hose or a valve is clogged. I don't know if I can clean the hose or a valve? Maybe it needs a new valve and hose?

  • rsimon5 Apr 08, 2011

    There is suction coming from the manual hose. There doesn't seem to be any suction coming from the automatic brushes. Would this still mean the black valve needs replaced? I cleaned the valve on the clean tank with a small paper clip. There wasn't any dirt. When I push down on the valve on the clean tank container liquid comes out. When I put the clean tank container on the machine no bubbles appear. The stem on the actual machine is off center and does not appear to be engaging the valve on the clean tank container. Can this stem be replaced? I would have to unskew the actual machine to get to this part. I am not sure this machine is cost effective to repair. What do you advise?

Is the motor running in the unit, when you start.If not, then motor has to be checked.Sometimes the motor gets dirty and it gets blocked by dust.Getting the motor cleaned, helps.But if its still not turning ON.Then motor is the issue it has to be checked and replaced.Check out.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

    If the motor is running then in that case.The spray tip has to be cleaned.The nozzle from where the clearer comes out is clogged by dirt.You can use a thin paper clip to clean the spray tip nozzle.OR Clean/Solution tank is not inserted Into the unit securely.--- Gently press the Clean/Solution Tank Until you see "bubbles" coming from the base of the tank.------

    And for no suction:---Dirty/Collection tank latch is not down. Push latch down, securely

    into place.--------- OR Black Valve on the Dirty/Collection Tank is missing. Replace Black Valve into Dirty/ Collection tank.----------

Replacing the Suction Hose on a Bissell SpotBot can be a challenging repair. We frequently get this question, how do you remove the old hose, so we decided to shoot a video repair demonstration on how to replace the hose assembly.
This repair works for all Bissell SpotBot models in the 1200 Series, as well as the 7887, and some Little Green Machines.
If you need to purchase a new Hose Assembly, you may find it on our website below:Bissell SpotBot Hose Assembly Part 203-6665

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.

We have a spot bot we inheritied without a users


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.

I need an instruction manual or booklet


I could not find a model 12005 but I did find a 1200. You'll find several different manuals for Spot Bots at the link below. There should not be any significant differences among the Spot Bot models.

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.

Power head on epic 6500 does not work, is there a belt?


This is a bot of a blind guess, I don't know the model. But most power head cleaners I have worked on use the suction of the vaccuum to spin a turbo fan in the head (like blowing a child's windmill). The head not spinning is usually because there's not enough **** to spin the turbo fan. Check for:
Gummed up brush bearings (dirt or damp) making the brush harder to turn than it should be.
Poor suction caused by a blocked or partially blocked pipe.
An obstruction that is tactchin the beater or the turbo fan.
Blocked filters on the cleaner, reducing the **** and thereby not providing enough vaccuum to spin the beater.
