SpotBot Pet Knows ALL the Tricks!!

By Dee102 from Carrollton, TX, USA on 10/06/2015

I have an elderly dog who has had trouble controlling her "issues" on the carpets. I had an upright carpet cleaner, but it was way too heavy for me to carry up and down stairs. Enter SpotBot Pet! My carpets look and smell like NEW!! BOTH upstairs and downstairs!! SpotBot Pet -- Affordable / User Friendly / Effective -- Those are pretty good tricks for a little machine!

SpotBot Pet Carpet Cleaner

By Bboop43 from Albany, Ca. on 09/16/2015

I had previously purchased the other spot Bot that is least expensive. Now I know why. This one does what it says you can sit it on a spot and walk away and it will do the work for you. It is a much better machine than the other. This hose is easy to work with and it is not laying on the machine and create problems with getting it caught and then you have a hose leak. I can't believe that this machine does it so well.

Spot Bot vs. JRT

By pals from Charleston, IL, USA on 09/04/2015

At first I loved my spot bot!!! I have 5 dogs, 3 of which are JRT's and one of those JRT's is kind of special. As in his nickname is short bus and face planting into walls is a full time pursuit. Oh and he pees on everything. Sometimes they make messes. Ok they make a lot of messes, but hey what an opportunity to try out the Spot Bot! For the first few months the spot bot was going to town, working great, I loved it. LOVED IT. Then disaster hit. The "special" JRT, named Archie fell deeply in love with the spot bot. Every time I took the spot bot out, he would be eyeballing it with a certain lecherous look. Then he started creeping closer until one day I heard this horrible noise. Somewhere between a screeh and a yodel. As I raced into the living room, Archie had the spot bot on its side, totally defenseless and was attempting to make love to the poor helpless spot bot. His "junk" was being "cleaned" in a truly deviant manner. #I'm still in therapy after witnessing this event# I separated the two would be lotharios and gave Archie a firm talking to and proceeded to ground him after explaining the futility of such a doomed relationship. All to no avail. Archie began to pursue the spot bot at all hours of the day and I would often come home to find the spot bot and Archie smoking cigarettes in the bathroom. The spot bot could no longer be used when Archie was in the house, because as soon as I plugged it in and pressed the deep seated stain button, Archie would latch onto the spot bot like a hot house hooker and proceed to shove the spot bot all around the room. It was beyond embarrassing. I then took drastic measures and locked the spot bot in a closet and bought Archie a subscription to Jack Bunny. This seemed to help. Then last month I noticed that the spot bot was mysteriously loosing all cleaning fluid, yet very little was going into the dirty water bin. Hmmmm.....so I filled the spot bot and all the fluid drained out right before my eyes!! Yet it wasn't on the floor and I could find no sign of it whats so ever. I had to conclude the spot bot had sprung a leak, likely as a result of the repeated assaults from the JRT. I shall be attempting to have our beloved spot bot repaired. I would like to suggest that the limited warranty, such as it is, be extended to cover amorous JRT's. Best Wishes, Flummoxed in Illinois

Love it but I wish we can change the hose ourselves

By Petlover from New Jersey, USA on 08/27/2015

This is our second spotbot. We have dogs and children so this comes in handy. Our first machine lasted 5 years but then the hose broke and we had to bring it to a dealer to have a new hose put on but..it was cheaper to buy a new machine. If the hose could be replaced by the person who bought it ...it would be great. All and all I love this machine and I would recomend this it.

Not thrilled......Great for the first year

By macey23 from Smithfield, UT, USA on 08/25/2015

Purchased this machine in December of 2013. Lasted great for about a year. Now, the tank leaks (yes, I've checked the duck gasket and its installed correctly) and the bottom has broken off at the screws from the top. Very disappointed because I loved it! Came online to look at options of purchasing a new one but finding that most of the reviews state the same issue. Might have to look at a different brand which is a shame because I really liked this machine the first year I used it. Disappointed that it worked perfectly until the warranty was done. Looks like a redesign is needed.

Leaks but.....

By liljojo65 from Undisclosed on 08/12/2015

My SpotBot Pet has leaked from day 1 but I still like it. Mine doesn't look exactly like the photos here so maybe they improved it? I love the set it and walk away feature but as in at least one video I saw I highly recommend using the hose to suck up remaining cleaning solution left behind. Mine leaks in many areas but as long as I empty any remaining cleaning solution from the tank I can store it without incident. If it wasn't for the leaking I would have given the SpotBot all 5 stars.

If You Have Pets with Fur, You Need This Machine

By Kat from Los Angeles County on 07/31/2015

My son and I purchased a Bissel Spot Bot the first year it came out (back when dinosaurs still walked the Earth). We have six cats, but have had more, up to 13, and we've used this machine HUNDREDS of times if not more. There hasn't been a stain it couldn't take out, including dried on pet stains, even the time I dripped white paint while painting the trim around the doors onto my brand new carpet. It took three run-throughs, but that paint came out! Well, today that wonderful, hard-working machine finally gave up the ghost. Not to worry, because we have two more Spot Bots in the closet. My son thought that because we liked them so much, they would be discontinued, much like treasured restaurants that close and TV shows that go off the air with record high ratings...he purchased me two more that we've kept all this time. Today I brought one out. Bissel, I am so grateful for this machine. Good job on a great product!

Tried and failed spot bot

By rolex from NH on 07/29/2015

Why can't I get a Bissell carpet cleaner to work? I have thrown away 2 upright carpet cleaners in the trash and now looks like a 3rd one. I bought the spot bot for our dog's mistakes. First the spot cleaner stopped working. The buttons do nothing. So not the complainer, we use the hand held wand. Ok, now the hose breaks at the machine connection, so we duct tape it, but that started leaking, That's it! If Bissell doesn't read this and send me a new one, I won't buy any other Bissell products... Hoover is next.

Love this machine!

By Judy86 from Macungie, PA, USA on 07/25/2015

I'll try to keep this short - I LOVE THIS MACHINE. Bought this to clean up after our dog threw up on our beige carpet leaving an orange stain. After some research decided to give the Spot Bot Pet a try. WOW am I glad I did! Not only did it get out the orange stain with ease it also cleaned a stain from 2 years prior when my daughter threw up. I tried everything else to get rid of the stain from her - even borrowed a large up right carpet shampooer but the stain kept coming back - until now! This tiny but mighty machine did the job! I am raving about it to co workers, friends and family.

After a Fix it Works Great

By ancient46 from Parkesburg, PA, USA on 07/11/2015

The unit as sent from Bissell had a leaking dirty water tank. the tank's sealer would not let it seat. It leaked and lost a lot of suction. After a few back and forth emails with pictures, I was sent a new tank. The unit now works properly with no more soaked carpets. If quality control hadn't missed an obvious flaw I would have given the product 5 stars.

I has pluses, but does stack up to little green.

By Bri from DFW, Tx on 07/06/2015

I loved my little green machine, so when it stopped working, I was devastated. My husband replaced it with this spot bot and while I liked the deep cleaning scrubber... The hose didn't clean furniture as well as the little green did, which was important to me as I have kids and pets and a huge expensive couch. First the sprayer started spraying wonky and then it got knocked over and started leaking out the bottom...so we scrapped it as a waste of money. It lasted us just over a year. We just replaced it with the proheat lift-off pet 2x expert series since our new house has carpet and I like that it can be an upright and portable...I like that machine much better.

Could not live without it!

By Marsha from Grand Haven, MI, USA on 06/28/2015

Two dogs who have become seniors and several accidents have made me an enthusiast for this product. We would have thrown the area rugs out! Poor reviews for leakage are truly due to not aligning the bill gasket correctly . Portable and so easy! Love it for stairs and any spill!

Worked great at first, then....

By Shanks from St louis on 06/25/2015

I have had two of these and after about a year they break. First one kept leaking from the bottom second one stopped spraying solution and only would suck up spills. I'm never recommending this to one of my customer again and will never buy another bissell product. I didn't use it alot and spent a ton of money on it

Durability issues

By MFY from Ohio on 06/25/2015

Despite only 3-4 uses, the machine stopped drawing solution from the clean tank despite all troubleshooting steps. This is surprising for a machine that is practically new. Our option given was to repair the machine. How disappointing.

Disappointing!!

By Photobug from Fairland, IN, USA on 06/06/2015

The SpotBot Pet Cleaner has possibilities, but falls short of my expectations. It cleans well on plush carpet, but does not do well on berber or sculpted carpet. It does not clean thoroughly in the carpet grooves and does not evacuate the water very well. The area cleaned is so wet you need to use the brush tool to suck up the excess water. After two months, my machine started leaking. It turned out to be the cap on the fresh water tank. I replaced this. Then, after having the machine for 10 months it started leaking again and the plastic adapter hooking the hose to the machine broke apart into several pieces. I have had the machine for less than a year and it is completely unusable! I love Bissell's products, but this has been a very bad experience (and product). I would not recommend this product to any of my friends.

Just didn't last

By ChristineB from Simpsonville, SC, USA on 05/30/2015

Got several cracks in the hose and wasn't suctioning. It was always leaking dirty water out of the bottom too. Quality just isn't the best. I have owned 4 Bissell spot cleaners over the years and they last about a year. And I clean it every time and take great care too. They just don't last for one reason or another. It's always after the warranty is expired too. Problem is they are the only spot cleaner in town so there aren't other products to choose from!

Piece of junk!

By Domestic goddess from Westfield, MA, USA on 05/01/2015

I have had two portables before this one. Had the original green machine about 10 yrs. and a maroon one for 10 to 12 yrs. these were live saving machines with small children and dogs. Three years ago, my daughters bought this model because my sprayer on the last machine stopped working. I didn't want this machine. I thought the brush was not necessary. Well, leaking started and then no suction. My daughter also has this one and hers is doing the same thing. Piece of junk! I've now bought the Spotclean Proheat for her and myself. So light weight and less complicated. A lot cheaper as well. Don't spend money on a brush machine that won't last.

AWESOME CLEANING POWER

By CSueC from Cape Cod, MA on 04/25/2015

I bought this machine when I got my Black Lab puppy last October. It has saved me and my rugs on several occasions. Twice, my puppy had diarrhea all over my bedroom rugs and not only did the Spotbot remove the stains but also removed all odors. As other reviewers have commented, the machine can leave a visible ring, but I found this only to be the case once when I accidentally stopped the machine instead of pausing it and had to start over again, thereby doing the spot twice. As for wetness on the rug, it quickly picks up with a paper towel if needed. Most of the time it doesn't. This machine is a must-have for any dog owner!

Top broke off

By kstrahle25 from Concordia, MO 64020, USA on 04/08/2015

I've read a number of reviews that have this same problem. Where the screws hold the top to the bottom have cracked & won't stay together. My machine is useless now. I've always bought Bissell products in the past because of their quality & durability but I wouldn't recommend this machine.

i would definitely recommend to a pet owner

By Steve-o from Houston, Tx on 03/25/2015

I was skeptical, but also interested to see the spotbot in action. I must say that it passed my tests with flying colors! Very easy to use, I mean if you can push a button... You can use the spotbot. Did my pet spots come clean? YES! I mean brand new carpet clean! My only problem was having to use the hose attachment to "blend" the clean areas in. Thanks Bissell... Now I need a whole room cleaner, after exposing the dingy color my carpet has become!

Removed Old and New Pet and Kid Stains!

By erin0606 from San Diego, CA, USA on 03/25/2015

Right after we moved into our new home, about 6 months ago, one of our Beagles had three separate accidents on our brand new carpet. The bottle cleaners from the store didnt work at all and we had 3 ugly dark stains on our light colored carpet. We started looking for an area rug to cover the stains because we figured nothing would get them out. Then our 7 year old son had the stomach flu and got sick in his bedroom and a spot in the hallway, again on our brand new carpet. Thats when I started to research these types of cleaners. I came across this Spotbot Pet Cleaner and decided to give it a try. It saved our brand new carpet! I did have to run the deep clean cycle twice on the older pet urine stains but you cant see them at all now. And one run of the deep clean cycle over my sons vomit stains took them right out. I did use the oxygen boost with the cleaner and each tank did 3 of the set in stain setting or 6 of the surface stain setting. It did leave the carpet pretty wet, as some of the other reviewers have mentioned. So I used the manual hose setting to soak up some of the extra moisture the cleaner left. The carpet was dry in an hour. I highly recommend this Spotbot Pet Cleaner for both new and old stains.

I can't believe my eyes

By zacpalmer from Olympia, WA, USA on 03/15/2015

We discovered after using a black light that our dog had peed in multiple places in our bedroom. We set out to find a really good pet stain remover. We've literally tried them all - included the "secret formula types" Some cleaners would remove the smell, but with the black light you can still tell the stain is there. Even professional cleaners couldn't get the stain to disappear under a black light To be honest, when we bought the SpotBot I thought it would be another gimmicky spot cleaner - just like the rest. To my surprise, not only did the spotbot do a good job removing dirt and stains - you cant find them under a black light. To be fair - maybe its the chemicals more than the cleaner (we used Oxy Pro with the pet stain remover formula) Either way my wife and I are happy. We were going to completely remove and replace the carpet. Eventually we will remove the carpet - but at least this saves us some time. I'd recommend picking this up - trying it out on your type of carpet. Well worth it.

Bissell Came Through - Thank You!

By Cookie from Katonah, NY, USA on 03/05/2015

The multiple urine stains from my dear dog were over a year old after having tried every remedy known to man. The stains were set in to white wool carpeting, and the back of white chenille upholstered chairs. I was tired of having my heart sink and feeling angry at my dog, so I bought my SpotBot. The chairs are like new and my eyes no longer get pulled down to a big yellow stain when I walk into my bedroom. The hose and brush lend themselves to many kinds of stains on furniture. I highly recommend using the Oxygen Boost if you are dealing with old stains. It would be unfair to ask the SpotBot to take care of bile stains from vomit that have set in over months. I tried, but it is an unreasonable expectation. I have no doubt that my SpotBot will clean new stains perfectly. If the machine looks confusing at first, it's not. It is so well engineered and designed that once again I am left loving Bissell and their products. (And thank you Bissell for contributing to animal welfare).

Not just for pet messes!

By Ilovekitties from Nj on 01/29/2015

I purchased this because I spilled coffee on a new cream rug -- I tried everything to remove the stains! A friend suggested this Bissell to get it clean! It worked great took a few applications. I've got kitties who had vomited which I cleaned by hand & had old stains still. I used the auto clean over the "old" stains & it's cleaned completely!!!! Great results from a small powerful machine. I would highly recommend this product. (Only drawback the solution has a "fragrance" and I'm allergic to perfumes, air freshners, etc. so I opened the windows to air the fragrance out -- wish manufacturers would take those issues into consideration--absolutely has no bearing on the machine!)

Life Saver!!!

By dlfnlvr928 from Coppell, TX, USA on 01/24/2015

This carpet cleaner is AMAZING! It has revolutionized my world as a cat owner! Cats throw up hairballs, and with that often comes food. I've spent umpteen hours on the floor with various spray cleaners and paper towels trying to blot up stains. It never worked! And then I adopted a cat that sometimes has accidents on the carpet instead of in his always-clean litter box! I guess that could be a reason why he was given up. Not to worry!! My baby's accidents are no match for my Spotbot Pet! Just be sure to vacuum first real good, even over the dried area. It is not a vacuum cleaner. And be sure to use the hose afterwards because it gets up loose deposits on the surface of the carpet. But none of it takes hardly any time at all to do. I can have an area perfectly cleaned and the cleaner put away in less than 15 minutes. I've been using it weekly for probably 6 months. I can't live without it! If or when my SpotBot stops working, I will promptly buy another one!!!

Perfect little machine for me

By Violet from Pennsylvania, USA on 12/11/2014

The Spot Bot is the perfect little machine for me because I need it for cat vomit. After I remove any solid materials with a paper towel, I put the Spot Bot to work. It has absolutely worked wonders for me. The machine can clean up to 7 or 8 spots with one tank of cleaning solution. If you know anything about cats, they just can't vomit in one spot, it is usually two to three spots. I had an upright which I hated dragging out and because it wasted so much time. This small machine not only cleans perfectly, you just set it and let it go on its own and in three minutes the spot is gone, then you move it to the next spot. And, clean up is a breeze and the containers are designed in such a way for easy removal, disposal of dirty water, and clean up of the container with no lingering smells. I have had the Spot Bot for about two months and use it about once every other week. For my use, it is the perfect machine.

Fell apart

By babes679 from Sioux Falls, SD on 12/10/2014

I had my spot bot going on almost 2 years. It started leaking all the formula out when not in use. The other day when i went to use it, I grabed the handle and the whole top part came unattached from the base. I take good care of this unit, very disappointed this happened. This leaves circles all over my carpet after use. Not sure if I'll buy another.

Works so well

By 2 puppies from Seattle, WA on 12/09/2014

I've had the SpotBot for 6 months with a new puppy -- I'm so glad I bought it. So easy and cleans thoroughly. It does leave the spot wetter than commercial carpet cleaners but really, it's a small spot and dries overnight so no big deal. Great machine!

Marvelous

By ladydoc from NC on 11/30/2014

This is a wonderful product. I wouldn't be without it! Some of the pet stains on my light brown carpet had been there for several years. The Spot-Bot removed all of them without using the oxy-boost product. I'm now using it for fresh spots and it has never failed to remove a spot. I have even used it on a heavy throw rug. Thanks, Bissell.

Did not last

By Disappointed from Charlotte, NC, USA on 11/08/2014

This has been the worst electrical device we have ever purchased. It worked okay for a short while. Then began leaking under the clean water. We could never find the same cleaning agents that came with it--neither on line nor in stores. Nor could we find any that claimed to be replacements. Now the spray will not work. We are using a hand spray bottle. The suction has declined. Everything now must be blotted with towels to a damp state from wet. All in all a real disappointment. Would suggest renting or trying another product.

Spotbot works well

By Linmg45 from NJ on 10/26/2014

The Spotbot has made owning a pet much easier. I have owned it for over two years, and it is a great product. I use it about once per month. I've used it for pet stains and wine spills.....simply blot up as much as you can and let the Spotbot do the work. I do use less soap than recommended and it seems to work just fine. It does leave a round spot on the carpet, but vacuuming erases that. I love it.

Awesome time saver, easy to use

By tomgto from St. Augustine, FL, USA on 10/15/2014

I've had my Spot Bot Pet for six months and it is nothing less than awesome. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has pets and needs a quick clean up. It's also good for non-pet messes like spilled coffee or soda. I have a few tips I've learned for maximum success with this unit. 1. The vacuum action may not lift all of the water from the carpet. After cleaning a stain with the bottom auto brush make sure you use the attached hose to vacuum up any water. I've found an extra 3 or 4 minutes of extra work will give you complexly dry carpets in about 30 minutes. 2. After you finish using the Spot Bot make sure you empty and rinse out the dirty water cartridge. If you leave that in there too long the waste could crystallize harming the rubber in the system. Rinsing this out is very simple verses a stand up steam vacuum. 3. After using the attachment cleaner make sure to rinse that out under the sink to get any hair or goo out of it. This too I found takes 30 seconds of rinse to keep it in operating condition. In all expect to spend about 30 minutes max on a small stain to remove it. I've found only one cycle with the brush cleaner does the job. I can't say it enough. If you have a pet, this is a great investment. Just take care of the product so it will last.

Love it!

By ccarter333 from Undisclosed on 10/12/2014

I just got it today and I love it! First I cleaned my couches and it worked so good my couches look new. Then I did my carpet in the dog room which has been stained over the years and it actually did a really good job, I thought I would have to replace the carpet but this saved me from having to do that. I love how I just turn it on and let it do the work, I can cook and clean my carpet at the same time. The only negative I have is that it only cleans a small area at a time so if you need to clean the carpet in a whole room it takes awhile. But, I know this will be useful in the future with any other small pet stains I get on the carpet or couch.

Pretty Amazing

By FBIT from Columbia, MD, USA on 10/07/2014

We have a cat that, during periods of anxiety, has urinated on the carpet instead of using the litter. It also (though neutered) sprayed on the carpet a couple of times. I rented RugDoctor units twice to clean the rug where these events occurred and it appeared to have cleaned much of the areas, but there was still discoloration and a slight smell. The SpotBot is amazing. The carpet looks like new and the odor is gone. I wish I could get the rest of the carpet to look new again......but I can't use the SpotBot to clean it one square foot at a time. This is truly a great machine. Is there a larger unit that could do the job on the entire carpet that the SpotBot does on small areas????

This was my best friend the past three years

By Piddly Puppy Momma from Denver, CO, USA on 09/28/2014

I had one well trained dog when my fiance passed away suddenly six months ago. I acquired his two dogs, who were used to going outside at will. Needless to say we had some accidents but it was nothing to get rattled about as I had my SpotBot. I used it at minimum several times a week ever since, sometimes daily in spite of my efforts. Just this week it began to sound a little strained, but considering the THOUSANDS of times I have used it in three years I am going to let the poor thing go. I liked mine so well I bought my daughter and son in law one for Christmas two years ago and they also raved about how well it worked. In fact, they had just had their carpets cleaned when their son made a few spills, so they hauled out Spot. Daughter called me laughing as they then had a polka dot carpet, it cleaned so well! But that's another story. Anyway, I loved my SpotBot. I can't wait to get it replaced as these rascally dogs are still with me!

My SpotBot Pet Cleaner

By Halifax64 from Richmond, VA, USA on 09/26/2014

I really like how it works on my dark carpet that the dogs tickle on but the majority of my house has cream carpet. It leaves circles all over the cream carpet. It makes it look like the dogs tickled all over the carpet again but only larger areas now. My dogs are 5lbs each. That is why I say tickle. I just got cleaner today and hate the idea of taking it back tomorrow.

pet stains and coffee

By Tiara from Arkansas on 09/15/2014

With 2 large dogs, 1 mid sized, 2 cats and 2 accident prone coffee drinkers, the beige carpeting gets spots. I have a big carpet cleaner but hauling it out for spots is a pain and the hand tool doesn't work as well as the floor tool. This has worked well on our fairly low pile carpets. Perhaps some of the reviews stating it's not sucking water back up are heavier pile? And I did find once that I had not gotten the dirty water container's removable seal on the drain reseated correctly. This let air in and it didn't suck up water. I used the hand tool and it got most of it back up, not quite as dry as the regular cycle has been leaving it. Compared to using my heavy duty carpet cleaner, for spots, I think this is a better design. The 2 rotary brushes come at the fibers from more directions. At any rate it is getting out stains faster and easier than my rug doctor. I might wish that it covered a bit wider area but overall it has worked well. Each tank does 3 cycles. So if the spot is larger than it covers I move it around to get it all before having to dump it. If it holds up over time I'll be a happy camper long terms. So far, I'm pleased. Much less work than dragging around the rug doctor and its working better on the stains.

HIGHLY recommend SpotBot Pet

By Little Old Lady from Bedford, TX, USA on 09/01/2014

I had ordered my SpotBot just a few weeks ago and it has already worked wonders! My dog had some kind of intestinal upset and had diarrhea. Well, I finally pulled the SB out of the box and used it on both fresh and dried spots that had set overnight. There was no sign of either left after 1 use!!! This little tool is easy to use and does a GREAT job. I'm an elder person and the SB is light enough for me to carry, too.

The Worst Product and Wasted My Money

By Dog Owner from Kalamazoo, MI, USA on 08/24/2014

I just wold like to put my comment here. I bought this product and used it once in a every month or two month when my dog messed a carpet. When I bought this cleaner, I thought this is very compact and handy, but I found out a hose is firm and not very flexible to move. I used not more than 10 times and the hose is started to crack and duty water is leaked from the hose. Also, water is started leaking from bottom of machine and messed my carpet more!! I normally research when I bought something new and I believed this is a good product. I also trusted Bissell product, but I was totally wrong! I totally spent wasting my money for this product. I will never buy this or similar product from Bissell again and I will also never ever recommend especially this product to anyone!

Best Purchase Ever!

By Sarah from Delaware on 08/09/2014

My husband and i recently adopted a puppy and quickly learned that house training was no easy task! We have light tan carpet throughout our whole house and our puppy had accidents daily. I read great reviews about this product and purchased it. I AM SOO happy i did! The spot bot completely cleans and removes any smells from our puppys accidents. Even if we didnt catch it right away and it's been dried for a few days, this deep cleaner gets rid of it right away. It's so portable and i love that i can just quickly take it out the closet, set it on the spot and walk away.. 5 min later the spot is clean! I will never be without one of these again!

SpotBot

By petowner from Ohio, USA on 08/02/2014

I bought one and it started leaking from the bottom. I took it back to the store to exchange it. It wasn't long before the brush part broke (on the hose) and then this one started leaking, Would not recommend this to anyone.

I have been totally amazed at how this little machine can clean our carpet. We have animals in our house, and this is the perfect size to carry around to hit those little accidents.

Life and carpet saver!!

By Serenak from San Diego, ca on 07/31/2014

I love this little machine! I have two dogs and we are military, so we rent and move all the time. This has saved me so much money in deposit fees and home maintenance! It's so simple and so effective! Best money ever spent! It really gives it a deep down clean and the Bissell carpet solutions work great! No smells and no stains leftover!

Leaks EVERYWHERE

By AMaloney from Yuma, AZ on 07/11/2014

Bought this machine a little over 2 years ago. It had been sitting in storage for 6 months while deployed. We just took it out of storage and it now leaks everywhere when we are using it. The entire tank of clean water and solution will bubble up from the bottom and make a mess, and the hose feature leaks dirty water when its turned off. When picking it up to put it back in our laundry room, there is a trail of dirty water that follows. It also leaves the carpet soaking wet all and doesn't thoroughly clean the spots on any setting. I am not happy with this product at all.

1st purchase great, second purchase waste of money

By No Longer Bissell Consumer from Lawrenceburg, Indiana on 05/17/2014

We bought the Spotbot Pet cleaner when the color of the machine was blue years ago. It was great; cleaned great and suctioned up the water great. I believe we had it for three years and it eventually ended up dying. Sad to see it go. We purchased another one, gray color, which as more expensive, of course due to three years later which is expected, but the product is no longer worth the money. Leaks and leaves carpet soaked with dirty water, why bother to use it, as it only mixes the dirt/soil from pets, with clean water and formula and then sends it back out onto the carpet. Read reviews and answers on the duckbill for the dirty tank and replacing the cap on the clean tank. Since sooooo many people are experiencing the same problems, why doesn't Bissell fix this problem, especially when they know it is a problem, because their making money on selling a defective product and then tells the consumer to replace this part, that part, etc., etc., etc. Their making money hand over fist. Why was the blue colored machine so great and lasted years and now the ones being manufactured today are throw aways after one use, if that!

Easy to Use and Effective!

By ItalianArt from Wantagh, NY on 05/11/2014

This is probably this easiest spot cleaner I've used. All you have to do is fill the reservoir with water and cleaning formula. Set the brusher over the stain, push a button, and a few minutes later the spot is gone! You never have to take a stain out by hand again!

Spot Bot 33N8 Leaking Clean Water

By luddy from Undisclosed on 05/05/2014

This is my second spot bot. The first one died due to bad circuit board after having it a few years. This one leaked a whole tank of fresh water all over the place when left sitting in a closet. I'm not sure what is wrong but there is something wrong with my machine as my old one never leaked. Thanks.

Great Product

By adiddy from Nashville, TN, USA on 04/28/2014

I bought my spot bot specifically for pet stains. My husband and I recently moved into a new home and couldn't be happier with how well the spot bot handles these "accidents". We were both amazed and disturbed at how much dirt was already in our carpets. I feel the option to have the machine work for you is well worth the money spent on the product.

I have six puppies in a brand new house with carpet. While potty training them they made quite a few stains on our new carpet. I bought this product yesterday and am ecstatic with the results!!!!! I love how i can just set it down and walk away. It cleaned all of the stains that had been there as long as six months! I highly recommend this product to anyone with pets or children.

Have owned 2--lasted only a year each

By hhink from Georgia, USA on 04/02/2014

I have now owned 2 of the SpotBot Pet cleaners. They both worked great in the beginning, but after about a year, just outside of warranty, they both had issues with the pumps. We tried to fix the last one ourselves by ordering a new pump, but it too quit working a few months after that. This newest SpotBot Pet was purchased 1/28/13, and now it too has something wrong with the clean solution tank pump. Once you place the tank with cleaning solution into the unit, it just dumps out all the cleaning solution at once onto your carpet instead of going through the clean, scrub, and suction sequences like it's supposed to. So, you can figure up how much I have spent owning 2 of these units, only to have neither last more than a year.

Worked great until it didn't work at all

By susy from Chicago, IL, USA on 03/07/2014

I have had TWO of these, and both had the same problem in the end. The first one worked wonderfully, then, one day, it just stopped working. No power. No lights. Nothing. It was only a few weeks old, so, thinking maybe this one was a lemon, I took it back to the store and exchanged it for another one. I've had this one about a year. Today, I got it out, set it up, plugged it in, and nothing. No power. No lights. Nothing. Again. UGH! I can't afford to keep buying new ones. Great idea, and when it works, it works wonderfully. Just no durability.

Best ever for pet stains

By 3doxies from Battle Creek, MI, USA on 02/24/2014

I have three dogs - one had the "runs" in the middle of the night all over my beige carpet. Tried another cleaner and still had stains - went and bought the SpotBot and all set-in stains gone - I keep it on hand always and it's never failed me. I have friends who say nothing can get their stains out and I've let them borrow mine - stains gone. Nothing like setting back and watching the machine work instead of me!!!!

This Really Works!

By Jeanette from Owensboro, KY on 02/22/2014

It is a rare thing when a product actually lives up to the hype of its advertising. The Spot Bot Pet deep cleaner works. I am amazed at how easy this product is to use. I am even more amazed by how well it cleans. An added bonus for me is the nice scent of the pet cleaner. I was pleasantly surprised is a light clean fragrance and so much better than many of the pet cleaners I have tried which simply cover up the smell or half cover the smell with a loud fragrance. The Spot Bot Pet and the associated Bissell cleaner products are the best I have ever tried. I am so glad to find this product. It is no wonder I couldn't find them on the shelves in stores. Thank you for this terrific product.

Great for pets!

By karsonclaire from South Carolina, USA on 02/22/2014

I have two male puppies who had a hard time understanding house-training and being boys, occasionally mark their territories in my home. I previously had a Hoover upright steam cleaner but it started leaking, so I got the SpotBot, which I thought would be easier to carry up and down the stairs. With the right cleaner, this little thing is awesome! it's so convenient and adorable. It's easy to store and carry around. You can get to all the hard to reach places with the hose and the scrub brush is great for stubborn stains you don't want to spend 6 minutes scrubbing yourself. I used it to clean my car upholstery and it worked great for that, too! Will definitely always have one of these now!

What's not to love? SpotBot Pet saves SO much time and energy, keeping up with the messes left by my sweet senior kitty. Set-up is easy, clean-up's a breeze, and carpet stains are banished in a hurry! In addition, it's lightweight, easy to carry up and down stairs, and small enough to store away neatly. I highly recommend SpotBot--an absolute MUST for pet owners!

Broken Casing/Carry Handle

By TVrana from Austin, TX, USA on 02/16/2014

After a handful of times of using this, the entire upper casing broke off now exposing all of the electronics and internal components. This seems to be the same problem that "suz4234" described below. The four plastic posts used to secure the top half with screws can be seen where they broke. This is not a wear and tear issue, rather an issue of cheap plastic and a design that should not have been used. This unit is out of warranty so there's nothing left to do with it. It's junk. We paid top dollar for bottom quality equipment. I really thought Bissell made better products that this. If this is a case of an isolated bad design issue by Bissell, then they should be offering full refunds or replacements with upgraded or retrofitted models for this unit.

works pretty good.. not durable

By atarione from Thousand Oaks, CA, USA on 02/12/2014

we have owned this cleaner for about 2~years for the first year (till warranty expired...go figure?) i would have easily given it 4 or 5 stars. however at about 14~ish months the fact bissell uses about the cheapest plastic know to man on these things became glaringly obvious. Since this time the attachment has cracked the end of the hose cracked by trigger. and now the unit leaked all over the rug when i went to pick it up and all four screws holding the top half of the cover on..(weak design to start with) cracked and broke off. if you buy this I would figure on buying another pretty much right after the warranty runs out / or get yourself a bulk pack of super glue and duct tape in order to piece this thing back together as it steadily falls apart on you. btw.. unit was stored inside out of direct sunlight in climate controlled environment... the plastic is just thin, brittle and cheap...imho.

So far it works great!

By stephaniej2888 from Palatka, FL, USA on 01/16/2014

I cant comment on the longevity of this item as i just got it, but as far as cleaning it works great! I have 4 dogs, 2 cats, a 2 year old and a boyfriend so my house gets spots that just *magically* appear quite often! I used it on one fresh stain and one set it stain that my big carpet cleaner hasnt been able to get out and you cant even tell anything was ever there! One tip if you are using the spot cleaner is to go over it with the hose once after the cycle is complete because there is some excess cleaning solution that the spot cleaner doesnt get all the way up (that would be my only complaint about this machine). Easy to store Easy to carry Easy to use Easy to clean

Not for large areas, but great for spots.

By BobG from Cincinnati, OH, USA on 01/14/2014

With a new puppy, we are testing this cleaner's capabilities. Fill it, set it down, and start it. The biggest problem were the clean circles on the dirty carpet. But I just got the hose out and cleaned the rest of the area.

Would Not Recommend

By houndmom from Chicago, IL, USA on 01/12/2014

I bought this product because I have 4 dogs and that that it would be a quick way to clean up accidents. It worked fine in the beginning. A little after a year of sporadic use it started leaking when not in use. Also, when I used the wand, the full tank of soapy water would empty out onto my rug. No clogs in the hose but I could no longer use the wand.

Dog Trainer and Foster Mom

By Bee A Good Dog from Broomfield, CO, USA on 01/10/2014

As a dog trainer and Puppy Foster Mom this little machine cannot be beat. Puppies have accidents and this does a wonderful job of getting the spots out. I also have kitties and one is almost 17 and vomits from time to time and after cleaning up the 'pieces' I put this little machine on the spot and wala! All gone :) And I must add that there was a home birth (human) in my home recently and it got the little bit of blood stains that escaped the birthing area out even after two days! I certainly beats having to drag out the rug doctor which causes my OCD to clean the whole room!

Awesome

By Cheryl from Evans CO on 12/30/2013

I told my daughter all I wanted for Christmas was a portable spot cleaner. She is big on reviews. So she did her homework and ordered the SpotBot for me as it truly has the best reviews out there. It is amazing. We have pets and it takes the mess right out of the carpet. I am a little concerned as it doesn't suction very well and I will be calling Bissell to trouble shoot. Other than that it is a very good product. I have the Bissell Pet carpet shampooer that is the best I have ever used. Love my Bissell products they keep us clean

works great!

By Kim M. from Texas on 12/29/2013

We bought a new house that has very light color carpet. We have a young son, livestock, and 2 dogs that come indoors. Lots of messes, so far this has taken every stain up, but I have kept up with cleaning them right away so I'm not sure how it will do with set in stains. The only down side is that the machine dribbles water when not in use, so I set it on a plastic tray to catch the mess.

Saves me lots of time and no more smelly carpet.

By Jeanne65 from Washington, UT, USA on 12/26/2013

This spot bot pet has been a real blessing after my pet has had an "accident" on the carpet. Sure beats getting on your hands and knees blotting. I just set it into place and let it do it's job. The only thing I wish that it would take up more of the water as it takes too long to dry. I'm giving it 4 stars for that reason.

Good Product

By scootermouse from Cleveland, Oh on 12/13/2013

Having fostered many dogs and puppies over the year, I find the Spotbot to be great for cleaning up messes and will continue to use it. I don't, however, like the fact that it leaves so much water in the carpet. A friend had an older model and it would leave the carpet nice and dry when it was done. I wish they could figure out an easier way to empty the dirty water. When you tip it to empty the water from the top it starts dripping out the bottom. There's also no real good way to clean out the dirty water container. I think Bissel needs to get their engineers working on these few things in order to create a FANTASTIC machine.

Works great

By Dolphin from Dickinson, TX, USA on 12/05/2013

I have used the SpotBot for cleaning a love seat that had turned into the dog bed. I vacuumed it forever, then used the handheld device and it worked beautifully. I thought the love seat was history, but it looks great. It is now a human love seat and when we are not home I cover it with a sheet. I have yet to try it on carpet, but with three dogs I am sure it won't be too long.

By WCG from Flowood, MS on 12/01/2013

I absolutely love this product, but the first one I got broke down the first day I used it and the replacement broke down the second day. When it is working it is very effective at getting spots out. It doesn't take too long to work, and I like that it is automatic after you push the buttons.

Didn't live up to it's claims. At least, not for me.

By Chris5151 from Bristol, IN 46507, USA on 11/07/2013

My son bought the SpotBot for me so I wouldn't have to get the "big" carpet cleaner out. Unfortunately, the SpotBot left my spots bigger and darker than they originally were. It evidently didn't pull much water out, because we set barstools over the wet places and used fans for several hours, thinking that when it was dry the carpet would return to its normal shade of beige, but it didn't. Needless to say, I was disappointed with my "machine". Maybe I just got a bad one, and I wouldn't be able to recommend this to anyone. My carpet actually looks worse than it did before I cleaned them. :-[

By Adleigh8276 from Virginia, USA on 11/04/2013

I love the spotbot! I was hesitant at first to buy this product based on some reviews but this has been a lifesaver for my carpet. My puppy had diarrhea on my carpet and I had used many different products to get the stains out but it wasn't working, this machine took them out the very first try. I also like how you just press the button and let it do it's thing while you clean somewhere else.

One of my favorite appliances

By Parachic2010 from Clarksville, TN on 10/31/2013

This little thing packs some serious stain removal power. The simplicity of putting it over the spot, pushing a button and letting it work by itself is well worth the price! It even beeps to let you know when it is finished with the cycle. The included hand tool also works amazingly on furniture, I was embarrased at what I was able to get out of my husband's recliner, although I definitely feel better about it now!. This is definitely a good investment, it can also be used in your vehicle as well.

The Little Machine with Disappearing Dreams

By Madeline from Undisclosed on 10/30/2013

I purchased the SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8-A after my fastidious daughter recommended it. She's been using hers for years with great success in cleaning up pet stains and tracked-in footsteps from her children and husband. I add the Oxy-clean to the cleaners Bissell includes with the machine and, so far, the dog and people stains have disappeared like magic. Great bargain for the price.

Somewhat disappointed...

By Linda S from Cape May Court House on 10/29/2013

Had the little green machine for years. Thought this would be easier and do better job. Cleans carpet but uses too much liquid and then leaves carpet very wet. Have used bother settings and had same result. Usually have to go over with hose just to get liquid out. Not what I expected.

This does a very nice job of cleaning pet spots.

By Amy J from Columbus OH on 10/27/2013

As I have almost no carpet, I bought this specifically for upholstery and area rugs. It does a very good job on my sofa, which I've used it on multiple times now. I used it on an area rug for the first time yesterday. The auto clean feature is very handy - and effective. I've been very pleased with the Spot Bot.

Right out of the box & no release of fluid!!

By kayla from Jersey City, NJ, USA on 10/27/2013

I was given this spot bot as a gift and have read the instructions more than twice and am trying to use it for the set in stains.. The brushes work, the motor sounds fine, but no cleaning solution is transfered to the clean tank or even my carpet... WHAT DO I DO? This is my FIRST time using it. :-(

Works very well.

By jnuc173 from Wimberley, TX, USA on 10/19/2013

We have a new puppy and a new house which doesn't mix well at times. This device works very well on pet stains. I is designed for just a very small area at a time, but that works for our purpose. I like that it is light and easy to store. Takes no time to get it running.

Great portable cleaner!

By Deep cleaner from Undisclosed on 10/18/2013

This is great for removing nasty stains and smells. I have only used the hand wand and it gets the job done. The solutions are hard to find for the portable devices and they are on the expensive side. you get very little solution for an expensive price. Thus, only 4 stars instead of 5 stars. Bissell - Please reduce the solution price.

Babies, Pets, Broken plumbing, oh my

By luvthespotbot from Undisclosed on 10/04/2013

This thing has saved us so many times it isn't funny. Diarrhea on the carpet at 3 am from a sick three year old? No problem! Urine/vomit from pets and kids? It gets it right out. Plumbing leak in the kitchen, gallons of water sitting underneath the floor of the cabinets? Detach the hose and off you go. I am also going to try to clean the cloth seats of my car with the detachable hose - we'll see how it goes but I'm sure it will be great for that as well. I love the ease of use and the pleasant smell of the cleaning products. The unit is rather heavy but that hasn't been much of an issue. If you have pets/kids, this unit will save you some headaches for sure.

Absolutely terrific for pet messes!

By Katsjazz from Vail, CO, USA on 10/02/2013

Love, love, love the convenience and effectiveness of the SpotBot. I have two small dogs that occasionally eat something that they shouldn't. And, unfortunately, that manifests in something completely disastrous usually in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping. The SpotBot makes it a cinch to clean up the nasty mess. This is, without a doubt, the best small carpet cleaner I've ever owned. The extendable hose feature is just great. Thanks, Bissell, for creating a great product (my dogs are grateful, too)!

Worked until it didn't. Boo less than 6 months old

By Sore Spot Bot from Sacramento, CA, USA on 09/30/2013

I recently moved to a new home where I have very light cream carpet and I bought the Spot Bot to help with my kitties hairball issues. It worked great for the first few months after my learning curve of using the hose option instead of the other to aviod leaving a ring on the carpet. My problem is that the Spot Bot did not hold up very well. After a few months of very light usage, the nozzle on the hose attachment where the cleaning solution is dispensed broke and now the water just dribbles out. Next the whole thing separated from the base so when I pick it up by the handle it almost breaks into two peices and I have to carry it from the bottom, it also leaks both the cleaning solution and the dirty water.

By middleprincess from Weiser, ID 83672, USA on 09/30/2013

I bought my first one over 10 yrs ago and I just had to replace it this year. I used this on every room and thru 8 dogs. it really works good on furniture too. The only thing is it cost the same as I paid for it 10 yrs ago. the sprayer quit spraying and it started not picking up all the water. it was the best for spot cleaning.

great machine except for the hose , loud noise

By hank from wake county nc on 09/27/2013

I habve had the machine since they came out years ago. They are great for pet accidents, but the hose on the machine is old and became stiff. not bendable like it was when new. I just use water to clean it has been wonderful. It would be better if it had a more flexable plastic hose. The noise is LOUD, there were many times I wanted to use it at night but could not because of the loud noise. Other than the 2 problems it is great and if you have pets or multiple pets plus carpet, the it will help. Get one!!

Easiest Way to Clean Up Pet Accidents

By Isabel47 from Michigan on 09/22/2013

I have used this machine for one month and I love it. I place the machine over the pet stain and sit down. When the machine beeps that it is finished, I look at where the spot was. Yes, the spot is cleaned up. ...gone! I remember how many times I had to treat and retreat my pet's accidents prior to SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner. I recently ordered a power attachment for the hose so I can clean my carpeted steps with less effort. This is the first machine made for pet stains. Of course, I use the products that are made for the machine.

A bit disapointed

By lucky23 from Cottage Grove, OR 97424, USA on 09/20/2013

I have light colored carpet and I first used this on the auto setting. It got the spot out, but left a dark ring around the area. I then used it manualy and it did not get out the dark ring and the middle that looked clean is now dark again. I used the pet stain remover. I will try again with the other cleaner.

Unbelievable

By Casey67 from Boca Raton, FL, USA on 09/18/2013

I got the SpotBot because I had some problems with various carpet stains and because my sister had one and raved about it. Now I'm raving about it. I had a spot in a spare bedroom that I think had been there literally for years; I spent more time than I can recall on my hands and knees with this cleaner and that cleaner trying to get it up. I figured, what the heck, lets see what the SpotBot will do, I wasn't expecting much, but the spot is gone! The SpotBot is stupid easy to use, it's lightweight and just about idiot proof. I can't think of enough superlatives. Wish I had gotten one sooner.

Works as promised

By MikeG from Corona, CA, USA on 09/15/2013

Got the machine to clean up the occasional cat messes around the house. Works well so far. My only complaint is the cleaning area is too small. I need to make a series of cleanings across a single mess. Overall, it does a good job.

So disappointed and discouraged with Bissell

By DogMama from Texas City, TX, USA on 09/03/2013

I've had 2 of these. My first one, which I used probably 10-12 times, worked great. Unfortunately, my life got interrupted by cancer and chemo. Once I was through with my treatment and life was back to normal, I reached for my SpotBot to clean a pet stain and it would not even turn on! This past winter I was lamenting to a friend that I didn't have a working SpotBot for cleaning up pet stains. She told me she had recently bought one but not used it, opting instead to let her husband clean up the pet stains with their full-sized cleaner. She offered it to me and I jumped at the chance to have another. At this point, I was thinking the first machine was just a rare lemon. The new one worked great for about 6 months. Then it began to act up as others have mentioned. Apparently, it's not spraying the solution, even though it APPEARS to be going through the cycle. I'm told I have to produce my receipt to get it worked on under warranty at one of the authorized outlets, but since it was gifted to me, I don't have a receipt. Is it possible that I'm just TWICE unlucky or is SpotBot an inferior product? BTW, I used ONLY Bissell products in both machines. Now I'm stuck with 2 dead machines and several bottles of solution I can't use.

Cleans up my worst housekeeping nightmares

By SteelersMom from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 09/02/2013

My personal worst cleaning nightmare is dog diarrhea in the dining room -- which is what I discovered this morning. Fortunately I had bought a SpotBot about a month ago. This was its first acid test. After picking up what could be picked up, I sprayed it down with Eeeeeeew (a Bissell product sold at pet stores specifically for pet stains and odors). I used the SpotBot formula for set-in stains to get maximum cleaning power, but pressed the button for suface stains to avoid grinding the disgusting stuff further into my cream-colored carpet. After the SpotBot was done with all the stains you would never know anything bad had happened in that room. It was amazing. I have two minor quibbles. One, mentioned by another reviewer, is that the dirty water tank tends to leak when you empty it -- which is disgusting. I place it completely inside the sink before trying to empty it so it won't spill on me or the floor. The other is that while the Oxygen Boost formula for set-in stains works like magic, it requires a lot of the liquid, which comes in very small bottles. I get only a little over two tankfuls per bottle, which isn't enough on a morning like this. They should sell it in gallon containers. Before I got the SpotBot I was trying to figure out how to find the money to rip out all my carpet and replace it with laminate before the family next gathers at Thanksgiving. Thanks to the SpotBot I can put that off for at least another year.

Extra hints on Spotbot pet cleaner

By Ginny from Dayton OH on 08/27/2013

In order to help with the circle left on the carpeting I find using the hose attachment with suction only sucking up the excess water after cleaning helps to make the circles not as visible. Be sure to clean the hose afterwards. I also turn the solution tank upside down on the machine to prevent as much leakage. I also leave the cleaning part of the machine over a sink overnight to dry out. I store the machine on a plastic tray to catch any excess water.

Above average performance, avg reliability

By CM from Atlanta, GA on 08/24/2013

Pros: Collection tank is easy to keep clean. Strong motor Good gasket design of collection tank. Cons: The body of my unit separated at the solution side of the tank after 1 year of use. Cleaning solution would leak if left in the unit. The "spot cleaning" feature would leave excess water.

By comfortmavenrescuesmama from Central Gulf Coast, Florida on 08/22/2013

Worked great, for two years

By casadelynch from Allen, TX, USA on 08/19/2013

We bought this after getting a new puppy, and after reading all of the stellar reviews. This product would've gotten five stars from me had I written this review six months ago. Now though, there is little-to-no suction and hardly any cleaner is dispensed during the auto cycles, and the sprayer in the manual use just spits out a sad little dribble. Over the past several months I've done all the checks and all the troubleshooting...the cleaning, the latching, making sure everything is connected, etc. As a matter of fact, I spent 2 hours today giving the darn thing one more final inspection before finally admitting defeat and writing this review. Basically, the unit is useless to us unless we use the manual hose for sucking up another cleaning product...which we've been doing lately. Sad we couldn't have gotten more mileage out of this given the price tag, but these days I suppose you can't expect anything to last more than a couple of years.

SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8-A

By Andy from New Jersey on 08/14/2013

This is the second one I have bought over the past 4 years. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because the hose cracks if you use it manually. The first time I tried to use it with the hose it cracked and there is no way to fix it. That's why I bought a second one. They should make a replacement part for this but they don't. If you use this without the hose it's great and does the job perfect but like I said don't use it manually or you will be buying another one.

Great Product

By Marlene67 from West Orange, NJ on 08/11/2013

For a small unit this really does the job. We had a air conditioner spill and the our white carpets were terribly stained. Tried rug shampoo ( Spray onl) This only made the stains worse and yellow. Used the SpotBot to steam out the residue. Followed with Bissell cleaner and stains gone.. Thanks Bissell.

I have 4 cats and every once inawhile there is a accident--my husband was just about to send them to a shelter when I bought the "spot-bot". It works perfectly and my carpets never looked better and I have saved money by not having to professional clean them every time. In fact I am looking to buy more bissell products--

By jim from Wentzville, MO, USA on 08/03/2013

My pet stain remover

By Phoenix from Tucson, AZ, USA on 08/03/2013

I got this because we were sick & tire of having to do the rugs just right after we had then done. This is so great because we only have to deal with the spots the animals hit right after our rugs are clean. We clean our rugs 4 times a year and just about a day later here it comes a huge mess so now this saves us a ton of work. Our cats and their hair balls are no longer a problem. Love this Bissell. Best thing we have ever purchase.

Excellent

By Den from CA on 08/01/2013

Absolutely fantastic product. We use it regularly for small area stains from the cat and dog, as well as coffee droppings when I am walking and not paying attention. It is so easy to use. Very quick fill-up reservoir. Easy to use: we just plug it in, push one of two buttons (depending on whether the stain is set-in or surface, and 5 minutes later we hear three beeps and it is done. It is relatively compact and light. Our carpets have never looked so good. Just remember, this machine is a SPOT cleaner and works so well that often after cleaning you will see one wonderfully cleaned SPOT with the surrounding area looking dirty.

Decent

By Vacuumboy4321 from Ok on 07/30/2013

This machine does remove spots, but not as easy as it claims. You have to fill it up and empty all the time. You basically have to use the hose for all the cleaning. There is not a rinse cycle so you then have to go back and manually rinse. This machine also leaves the area it is cleaning pretty wet, so you have to go back over it manually with the hose. I have normal dirt stains in my carpet from heavy traffic. It doesn't get them completely out. The spot bot also occasionally will make my stains worse by spreading them out to the diameter of the area it cleans or it leaves rings on my carpet. After only a few months the hose has a random rip! What? When you take the hose off it is very stiff and hard to use. It can't twist and it has bent to the position that it is when it's around the machine. The hole is in one of those bends. I guess I'll have to get in touch with bissell and get it fixed... I love bissell products but not this one. Stick with the upright carpet washers. Don't waste your time with these little spot cleaners.

Great little machine

By soshiny from Oklahoma City, OK, USA on 07/28/2013

I received the Spot Bot Pet machine on Christmas 2012. I have used it almost everyday since. Potty training a rescue pup and moving into a new home. I LOVE this spot cleaner. I wish the cleaning products were a bit better priced but it's a wonderful product. So often the advertising just doesn't match the actual performance. This one exceeds it! AND Bissell fights for pets! A cause close to my heart as I volunteer for our local Humane Society. We rescue, foster and sometimes adopt our fosters. The one downside is that the hose has cracked because of my almost daily use and that item is not covered on the one year warranty.

Not Very Durable

By DRMNB from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 07/27/2013

I have 2 geriatric cats and love what this product saves me in bending over, but I am disappointed in the quality of the parts. I had my first SpotBot for two years before I started having problems with it. But five months after purchasing my second SpotBot, there are cracks in the hose connection and the brush attachment. The crack in the brush attachment happened very soon after the purchase in February.

Great for this cane user!

By Muddysmom from Madison, WI on 07/26/2013

I bought this because my two cats, who are past middle age in cat years, have hair ball issues and are depositing "stuff" on my carpets a few times a week. This is the only way I can keep up with them! I've learned not to buy cat food with lots of colors and dyes in it, cuz those stain the carpet and are hard to get out, even with extra cleaner or an extra cleaning cycle. I love the fact that I can set this down and let it do its thing. I use a cane, so I couldn't be crawling around on the floor scrubbing at stains.

Worked for about 3 times...

By D from Dayton, OH on 07/23/2013

I bought this machine about 3 months ago. I've only used it maybe 10 times? First I was noticing all the shampoo in the container was gone every time I went to use it another time (even though the manual states you can leave the shampoo compartment in it). I started noticing it was completely draining out of the bottom. I wasn't sure if this was faulty at the time or not. I just dealt with it b/c I liked the product at the time. After every use I thoroughly cleaned it and then took out the shampoo compartment. Then I started noticing the dirty water compartment not filling up whenever I used the automatic feature with the large scrub brush. I noticed the compartment seemed either very sensitive where you had to have it on just right or it was faulty. I wasn't sure at the time but I also didn't like how much shampoo it used at one time with the automatic so I decided to start using the handheld feature instead. Well now the dirty water compartment is no longer collecting anything. I did shake it and for a split second a little spray of dirty water went in and that was it. The weird thing is the suction part is working. So where the heck is this dirty water going?? Not happy at all with this product and just now reading other people's recent reviews of how it lasted no more than 1-2 years I'm not really sure this was the best product to buy. I also have noticed there is like a sponge around the bottom of the dirty water holder that sits on the actual machine and it looks worn down (but as I recall there was barely any of that sponge there when I bought it). Obviously this is cheap material. I'm not an engineer so I'm not sure why the dirty container isn't hooking to the base but obviously this is a fault machine. Irritating now I'm going to have to spend time and money that I don't have to get this stupid thing fixed after 10-15 times usage. It better be under warranty. I might as well get on my hands and knees and hand scrub for much less $$ and headache.

Great product to keep rugs clean.

By LABishop06 from Massachusetts, USA on 07/21/2013

In our house we currently have 2 dogs, 5 cats and a busy little 5 year old prone to "accidents". The Spot Bot works great at cleaning up what ever little stains/accidents that may appear on our rugs. And regardless of which way you are using it, (automatic scrubber or the hand held hose), this little machine works like a charm getting stains out that are simple surface stains or more difficult set in stains. We are on our second one. The first we received for a wedding gift 7 years ago. We used it every week, sometimes a few times in one day. Over the years our collection of animals has changed and we have a child now, but the one thing that never changed & remains still a durable and dependable machine. Just recently we purchased a second one (first one is still working) and it works just as well as our first.

Pet Deep Cleaner

By Astro from Fort Myers, FL, USA on 07/18/2013

We use the SpotBot a few times a week as my wife's two cats are over 15 years old and cough up frequently. The machine does everything it is designed to do and we are very satisfied with it. Certainly beats cleaning up by hand. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone who has dogs or cats.

SpotBot Deep Cleaner 33NB A

Outstanding product. I have used it several times. Totally removed stains on my carpet that had previously been professionally cleaned and not removed. Cleaned the carpets in my 6 year on car which has light grey color. Really stained but now they look like new! Highly recommend. Wish cleaning products came in larger sizes. I would buy gallon sizes.

Worth every penny!

By Completelyhappykassie from Provo, Ut on 07/14/2013

We bought this machine two years ago and it has now seen us through 2 puppies that grew into 120 pound dogs that basically shed their body weight in a month, who also are very stubborn about potty training. I was skeptical at first and hesitant to spend this much on a very specific purposed machine but we needed to do something better than scubbing on our hands and knees. I can honestly say after two years I would absolutely recommend this! I wish the cleaning opening was a bit bigger but it is easy enough just to shift the machine around and start it again. I would buy this product over and over again! An absolute must have for pet owners!

Awesome spot cleaner

By lsmanski from Undisclosed on 07/12/2013

Our cat gets terrible hairballs and so throws them up along with his food. Needless to say it makes a mess on the carpet that just wiping and water wont get up. So we invested in the Spot Bot Pet Cleaner. We used it with the Oxy Gen 2 cleaner and the regular formula. Oh my, the set in stains came right out. I actually have clean spots all over our carpet. We can see the original carpet color. So we went and got the big Bissell carpet cleaner. Now we cant tell where he threw up. And when he does throw up now, all I have to do is wipe it up, set the Spot Bot on top and let it go to town. Six minutes later there is no evidence. Our rug stays clean now. This is a dream come true. I highly recommend it to any one with a pet.

Well Done!

By cprochas from nj on 07/07/2013

I just bought this little workhorse and I have to say it does do the job. As I have pets, clean carpets are a priority. I've tried quite a numberof products that were useless. Between major cleanings with a full size carpet shampooing machine, this little 'bot' gets all those little nusciances that pop up in between. It also seems to be a fairly simple mechanism. Not a big deal to keep clean and doesn't seem prone to clogs like some of the big uprights. The oxygen cleaner did get through to an old coffee stain I never thought would come clean. Who ever invented that one should get a big gold star.

Fantastic!

By Janet from Arvada, CO, USA on 07/05/2013

I very rarely write product reviews, but I am completely thrilled with this machine! We just rescued two dogs who both have had some potty training issues due to some previous neglect and abuse in their lives. Combine that with our beige carpet, and I was spending a lot of time on my hands and knees scrubbing spots! This machine is awesome! I use both the pet stain remover and the boost. There is not a single stain it has not removed and has even eliminated some of the older stains that we acquired before I purchased it. I am very happy - thanks Bissell!

Lasts just past the 1 year warranty

By Mike in SC from York, SC on 07/02/2013

When it is new it works great. After a while, two plastic tabs break and the unit separates from itself and about falls apart. I have to super glue it to hold it together, and carry it with one hand on the bottom. Also over time the automatic suction fails to work properly, leaving you to have to use the manual hose. Unfortunately, this is the only option I have found other than using a big machine for small pet clean ups. This is my second one, and both have had the same issues in about the same time frame ( 13-14 months after purchase).

Best stain removal

Worked great for the first year, then... :/

By Libs from Providence, RI on 06/26/2013

We had a rescue dog who had to be re house trained. This process was almost done by the time we got the SpotBot. Still, I was impressed and we dubbed it R2Pee2, the marriage saver. Unfortunately, the magnet in the hose end which allows the machine to sense connection for the automatic setting attracted metal scrapings from the rug (which I previously didn't know were there), and the surrounding plastic expanded and cracked, which worsened the problem. The hose wouldn't fit back well, and eventually the metal screw on that part rusted, and now it only works on manual setting. It seems like knowing that metal and water don't mix well is a serious design flaw, and in retrospect it was probably too much money to pay for something we have used perhaps 20 times. If not for this, I would give this 5 stars.

Great Product!

By Rascal's mom from Conway, AR on 06/25/2013

I have three small indoor dogs and this product is absolutely wonderful. It does exactly what it says it will do. Even set-in stains have come out of my carpet. I don't put the cleaner in the machine, instead I put it in a squeeze bottle and spray it on the stain, then put plain water in the machine and let it clean away. Haven't found a spot yet that it hasn't cleaned.

Not worth it!

By Unhappy client. from Undisclosed on 06/25/2013

I received the Spotbot as a wedding gift exactly 1 and a half years ago. I used it periodically, about two times a month. When it worked it worked well. I noticed recently pieces of plastic were coming off in random places. Then I went to use it this morning and the Spotbot completely fell apart. Very unhappy and disappointed. I would not recommend this product. I am a little OCD and took very good care of the machine it was just poorly made.

great machine

By sam718ic from Manitowoc, WI, USA on 06/23/2013

i have 4 cats and a light colored carpet in the living room where they have to throw up. the machine does a great job of removing the stain but everything leaks you have to finish sucking out the water with the hose attachment because the machine can't get it dry enough. the rating is for the lack of suction and leaks, not it's cleaning ability.

Great Product for pets

By Steph from Indiana on 06/11/2013

I received this deep cleaner as a Christmas Present. But, after a few months, it quit working. I took it to an authorized repair facility and found out that the electronic board was bad, but without a receipt, I was unable to get it repaired under warranty. I contacted Bissell, and very quickly was able to get a new replacement unit without any hassles! I was very pleased with the cleaner as I have a large dog and have small stains at times. This SpotBot cleans them quickly and easily without having to break out the large carpet cleaner! I am very pleased with this product, and although I did originally have a defective machine, the replacement process was even better that I could have hoped for! A++ Product and A+++ company!

New Puppy

By Mbs720 from Alton, Illinois on 06/10/2013

We purchased this product just before we picked up our new 8 wk old Yellow lab. This machine was wonderful during our potty training days. Loved the hand held wand for the moments he urinated all the way to the door. We had no residual stains or odor. Highly recommend. We now use it for our children's spills. Also very easy to use my kids operated the machine most of the time.

Greatest little spot cleaner in KS

By ggsmith38 from Wichita, KS, USA on 06/05/2013

I used my new SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner for one whole day cleaning up spots throughout the house and I am most impressed with the efficiency, speed and thouroughness the machine worked. I cannot scrub carpets because of an injury to my shoulder and this is the perfect answer to the problem of cleaning up spills and spots. It does all the work for you and in a very short time. I just wish the carpet would dry sooner than it does. That is not the fault of the SpotBot. I really do love it.

Product worked great for a year and a half and then broke!

By Christine from Colorado on 05/27/2013

i loved this product, used very minimally but after about a year and a half, I notice the soap foam was leaking and that the top was separating from the base. I tried to see if there was a screw missing and found that 3 of the 4 plastic pegs that the screws go into were broken. Of course the warranty is up. I also have a full size Bissell carpet cleaner that I love but I would not buy one of the portable ones again.

Excellent power house

By Alita55 from Peckville, PA, USA on 05/26/2013

Powerhouse!!! I have a cat who is prone to vomiting. The spotbot is an excellent cleaning tool for removing vomit stains set into the carpet. I like the fact that all you have to do is select the stain type, set the brush over the stain, press the button and go. No getting on your knees to scrub that stain away. I have used it on stains that have been set in for weeks ( surprises left in places you can't see unless you move furniture). I have recommended this to everyone I know that has a pet. It leaves the carpet smelling fresh and looking clean. It also works excellent on urine stains and odor.

Spotbot is awesome on pet "mistakes"

By Jack2King from NY on 05/13/2013

Have owned the spotbot now for about 1 month. Sneaky little pets frequently hide their sins, but I have been on the hunt for their treasures. Mostly it is muddy feet, but have uncovered a few mistakes. The spotbot has been a lifesaver. It has successfully removed stains and odors associated with the sneaky pets. The best feature is the set it and go. For hose operation, the water vacuum seems to be quite powerful and effective. The operation is very quiet compared to a normal cleaner, but effective enough to scare a nosy dog away. As with other reviewers, I have noted some leakage if you leave the machine sitting around with water still in the tank. Also, if you toss the hose around, you are gonna get some leakage as well. The bigger problem I think is with the user as opposed to the machine. A little better housekeeping on my part, resolved the issue of leakage. Good product, much more easier and effective than other compact cleaners.

Works, but leaves you carpet soaked

By Pseudomamma from Indiana, USA on 05/09/2013

I bought this to clean up after our office cat. I now have several 6" round bright spots in our carpet. I tried it on several different kinds of stains. It works very good, but leaves the carpet soaked. I've tried using the hose to suck up some of the extra water. That doesn't work very well either. If it wasn't for this, I would give it 5 stars.

Circles of CLEAN

By JavaGoddess from Fox Lake, IL, USA on 05/09/2013

I wish this site would let me post a video review, as I did on another site, because it has to be seen to be believed. With two three-pound Maltese pups that are puppy pad trained, imagine the canine confusion when a Water Spaniel was added to the mix. Pet messes on a grand scale! I took a filthy area of light colored carpet that was nearly black with previous attempts of cleaning, set the Bot to deep clean and walked away. Big circles of clean carpet from the circle bottom brushes! I was so amazed (and I'm such a dork!) that I burned up my phone sending the visual proof to friends with pets. Had it for a while now, still going strong. Highly recommend.

So easy, even a cavema- ...Well they didn't have these back then.

By Kypros from Atlanta, GA, USA on 05/05/2013

I bought the Spotbot Pet because I have 2 pomeranians who like to undermine my authority! I swear, I think they're doing this just to make me annoyed. They -pretend- to go outside and go to the bathroom, then wander back inside, run upstairs, then promptly make a big mess all over the carpet just above the stairs! Ugh! The spotbot's taken 95% of the chore out of having to clean up the puddles the dog leave in the carpet. My only problems are: 1) I've noticed when emptying the tank, it often ends up spilling the dirty water all over the floor from the bottom (which really is gross and annoying!) There's also a rubber gaskit on the bottom that sometimes pops off when draining the tank. 2) The suction from the spot cleaner isn't very good, it still leaves the carpet pretty damp. If I go over it with the hand-tool, it sucks up a lot of water that was left there. Other than those, the only other improvement I'd've like to have seen would be a heater on the cleaner. (I believe an older model of the spotbot had this option..) Just make sure you use a cleaning solution that deals with pet odors (because if the stain's been there for a while the machine will disperse the odor while cleaning- the free sample that came with the machine worked great.)

Wonderful Product

By Kasey from Louisville, KY, USA on 04/19/2013

I bought my house almost a year ago, and it had carpet (which I plan on removing completely in the coming year or two as I am not a fan of carpet, at all). Beige color. It had some stains on it already before I moved in. I borrowed my Mom's carpet cleaner (which was a waste). It did nothing. So I lived with the stains for a while. I got a new puppy, 6 months ago, and I already had an adult dog. The puppy has accidents occasionally. As much as I have scrubbed, and different brands I have used, the stain was still there. After reading many reviews and researching different carpet cleaners, I finally decided on this one. I could not be happier! Best money I ever spent on a carpet cleaner! Fill it up, sit it down, hit the button, and come back 6 mins later to a clean spot. In fact, it makes a clean "circle" and the surrounding area is a bit darker, because it worked so well! I am searching for spots in the carpet to try this thing out now. Best money ever! I couldn't be happier. I have yet to use it on my couch or in my car, but I don't think I will be disappointed!

FANTASTIC!

By Leeners81 from Monroe, WA, USA on 04/15/2013

I think this is the best carpet cleaner on the planet! What's not to love about the easy-to-use set-it and forget-it technology?! We have four pets and I can't imagine what our carpet would look like without the SpotBot Pet. If you have pets, this is a must-have for deep set-in stains (vomit, urine, etc). You won't regret purchasing this machine!

strong start, very weak finish

By cjk from Reading, PA on 04/14/2013

Up until a week ago, i would have given this thing top approval and a great review. up until a week ago it worked great, scrubbing and suctioning stains and messes as described. From pet stains to spilled drinks and baby throw-up--it did it all. Then last week i went to pick it up and the housing top separated from the bottom. No visible weakened areas waiting to break, no "pop" or "crack"-just simply separated. I thought id be able to fit it back together in the case that something had slipped out of alignment, but that didnt work either. seems a few screws had separated from the plastic holding the top and bottom together. I had picked it up with the intention of using it, and since the mess was still there, i put the SpotBot down over the mess, hoping it would work as usual despite the separated housing. But nope--it failed to suction properly, sputtering soapy water into the discharge tank and draining the fresh water out into the rug. Great-another wet mess to clean up. Its been about a year since i bought it, so i dont have my hopes up for getting a replacement and of course dont have the receipt. Sounds like a common problem.

Would not recommend

By DenverVol from Colorado, USA on 04/14/2013

I had this for about six month until it starting falling apart. Now it is unusable. Even when it did work, while it was pretty good about getting spots up, it would leave a cicrular ring in the carpet for weeks. I wouldn't recommend this product.

Like having a spot maid!

By catmaid from Troutman, NC, USA on 04/08/2013

I bought the Spot Bot about a little over a month ago because we have a baby on the way and a cat who literally loses his meals several times each week (don't worry, I have had him seven years, he simply eats too fast and regurgitates). Anyway, with a new addition on the way we figured new messes would be on the way and didn't want our baby crawling around on this floor. We have fought with every sort of carpet cleaner imaginable, but have not been satified with our own elbow grease. However, we have fallen in love with SB. It is like having someone come in and scrub your floor for 3-6 minutes while you sit back with your feet up! Carpet looks new again. :)

Does not work

By Kristi62 from Houston, TX, USA on 04/08/2013

I was excited to get this product. I used it the same day I bought it, followed the directions to the letter using the "set in stain" settings on three stains on my less than one year old carpet. To my disappointment, after 3 attempts to clean the stains, none of them even faded a little bit. In the directions, it stated it would continue to work for 8 hours, so I waited hoping the stain would fade within that 8 hours....it did not. I am extremely disappointed in the product.

Worked very well

By Miss Lynn from Tennessee on 04/03/2013

And was put into use the day I received it. Have a three month old puppy and she still occasionally has an accident. I have a big Bissell rug scrubber with a detatachable cleaner but it was to much of a hassel to pull the whole thing out for one spot so this will come in handy, not just for the puppy but for the cats that like to get rid of hair balls occasionally on the carpet and leave a spot.

Can't Live Without It!

By BLNINCO from Englewood, CO, USA on 04/02/2013

This is my second SpotBot. My Westie makes occas. little messes. I can't afford the time to shampoo the entire carpet, but the SpotBot works quite well. A little learning curve as to what setting I should use for different stains, and what cleaning solution to use. The circles pretty well diminish when I vacuum after the area dries. The dirty water tank does drip when I go to empty it, but usually only if I've let it get too full. Bottom-line--I love it, it works, and makes my busy life much easier.

recommended for pregnant centenarians

By isly9955 from Polk City, IA 50226, USA on 04/02/2013

I recently purchased this bot for daily crime scene clean-up caused by a free-roaming reptile. Although this 20 year old gravid iguana has the fecal retention capacity of a pregnant centenarian, the bot has removed all traces of lizard leavings from the cream carpet! There is some drippage as the waste container is removed (but trivial compared to the lizard-leakage) so I don't remove it until I'm on tile. The tortoise is better trained so it may be a while before I can comment on this important market sector.

Handy cleaning helper.

By DesigningRobert from Boise, ID, USA on 03/28/2013

I started looking into this as I now have a new dog. While she is very good, we had the occasional accident and for some reason she loves the dining room carpet. The SpotBot has cleaned every spot I have tried it on, even older ones in other places. I really am happy with it, it has saved me so much time and effort. It does a better job than I can, and I'm pretty picky.

Clean cycle issue

By Unhappy from San Jose, CA, USA on 03/26/2013

I would not recommend this product--I had to return it as the cycle did not work correctly. It dumped an entire tank in one cycle and did not vacuum it back up. As a result the liquid spread the pet urine stain farther out into the carpet. I had to hire a professional to come in and clean the area. It caused more damage than what I started with.

It's okay

By Amanda77 from Canton, MI, USA on 03/26/2013

When I bought it two years ago I loved it. Worked very well with having a puppy. One year after I got this the bottom fell off. I wrote to Bissell and they gladly exchanged it for another. Which was great customer service. Now another year has gone by that one the bottom fell off. I only use it once in a great while. I don't mishandle the product at all so for the bottom to fall off puzzles me. If this product didn't fall apart I would have given it 5 stars.

Pet odor eliminated immediately

By jcpwjp from Chesapeake, VA, USA on 03/25/2013

I purchased the SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner this evening. I also looked at Hoover, but was willing to spend a little more because the Bissell ads on television looked pretty convincing. This is so easy to use. Very straightforward. Within minutes of taking it out of the box, I was able to remove the odor (my dog threw up last week,) using the Set-In stain setting. I tried using foaming sprays and soap with hot water and a sponge, yet the smell still remained. The Bissell's combination of brushes & suction did a far better job than I could do by hand. Smell is gone and carpet looks great! Definitely worth the money.

cleans but doesn't last long

By kjz from NE on 03/25/2013

I am using my second Spotbot Pet. This one has now done exactly what the first one did. In the beginning they work great, get out the stains and the water. Then as you use you begin to notice that it isn't getting all the water suctioned out. You will also notice that the screws that hold the top of the unit to the bottom are loose and you can't tighten them. As the screws become looser (evidently they strip out whatever they screw into) the machine has less and less suction and eventually the whole thing will come apart. I thought maybe carrying it by the handle (what is it for???) was the cause so I have avoided doing that with the second one, but this one is about 8 months old and beginning to have the same problem. I love the machine but will probably not buy another one since I think it should last more than a year.

Excellent

By Jominan from Hermitage, Nashville, TN 37076, USA on 03/24/2013

I have two smallish senior dogs and they try to be good, but sometimes have accidents. This SpotBot is an answer to my prayers! It is WONDERFUL! I turn it on, walk away and it takes care of itself. And I mean that spot is GONE! I wish I had bought one a long time ago. A friend told me if I ever have rings around the cleaned area, that means that my whole carpet is dirty and SpotBot cleaned that one spot cleaner than the rest of the carpet. I cannot recommend the SpotBot highly enough! I'm going to buy a second one - one for upstairs and one for downstairs! Best money I ever spent!!

SpotBot is Just the ticket

By jim127 from Marion, IL, USA on 03/23/2013

We have a full Bissell carpet cleaner but with 6 cats and 4 dogs the maneuvering of the large cleaner and keeping it ready to use was beginning to be a hassle for periodic spot cleaning. The SpotBot is convenient, easy to operate, and allows maintainence for immediate use. It cleans well and has good suction for removing the cleaning fluid. It has worked well for pet accidents, coffee, soda, and other spills. This product is highly recommended.

So far so good

By dianet from michigan on 03/21/2013

I have now used your product for the first time. When I got home one night, I found that my soon to be 10 year old dog had thrown up on my bed. The acidy yellow bile, had seeped through the comforter, top and bottom sheets, electric blanket, mattress pad and thick mattress pad. I could wash everything in my washer except for the thick mattress pad. Luckily, my select comfort bed, has a thick top that you can unzip. I set your product on top, put a garbage bag underneath the top, and set it to the automatic setting and let her rip. Because I had never used it before, I used both products that came with it for the set in stain. When it wa finished, the large (and growing by the minute), yellow bile stain was gone. Thank you for this product. Because of losing my job and being 60, II have a fledgling, home based dog daycare and overnight business, and I have much less stress knowing that I have it.

SpotBot Broke in Half

By BrokeBot from South Lyon, MI on 03/16/2013

Just like a previous reviewer, the four screws broke through the plastic on my Spotbot as well. The top half separated from the bottom half and it is now useless. My SpotBot is less than two (2) years old and I only use it a couple of days a year. Please let me know if Bissell plans to replace it, as logic dictates that it makes no sense for me to buy another SpotBot. Thanks

Nice machine, eases life little messes

By Jay from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 03/16/2013

I have a dog that is great, he seldom makes any type of mess, but there are those times when he is stuck inside too long. For those times when I need to clean after him, this is a nice machine for easing my life and cleaning the mess. The machine is perfect for the little bit of carpeting that I have to spot clean. It stores easily, is almost idiot proof and does a decent job of cleaning. I did have a couple of spots in the caperting in the spare room that I have not been able to remove with this machine. Yes I did pretreat and used the oxygenated cleaner to help, but just too set-in. I love the set and forget approach to the system. I fill the water tank with cleaner and water, set it over the spot, press the proper button and walk away. It will beep to let you know it is done, that is if you don't notice the motor is no longer running. I forgot to mention the water tank is pre-marked telling you how much water adn cleaner to add, no need to use some little cap to measure the cleaning fluid in some little cap. I think the biggest drawback is the pricing.

A dream come true.

By Twiggy's Mom. from Reno, Nevada on 03/14/2013

I have a senile, incontinent cat with chronic diarrhea. She quit using her litter box for number two several months ago. I have the puppy pads all over the place but she still manages to find a spot on the carpet to go. I was hand cleaning this and after the accidents piled up I would drag out my full size carpet cleaner and go over all the spots. I bought the SpotBot Cleaner and use once or twice a day. I check the carpet in the morning for accidents, wipe up what I can with a paper towel, place the SpotBot over the mess, push the button and walk away. This product is exactly what I needed for my problem. Thank you so much for designing this.

Horrible product!!!

By Unsatisfied from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 03/11/2013

I purchase this machine twice and it stopped working (suction) twice. The repairment couldnt even tell me what was broken. He just had to get a replacement. I will never buy again.

Great little machine!

By Lucee1986 from Undisclosed on 03/11/2013

We got this soon after we got a puppy. It has cleaned up set in urine stains, vomit and even mud from shoes that got tracked through the house. Both the machine and the hand held portion work great. I will admit that the dog doesn't like it when it runs (sounds like a vacuum) but it doesn't run for that long (3 min for a surface stain, 6 for a set in) The pet cleaner smells really good too! I read that someone said it leaves a dark ring on the outer part, that just means that that spot is cleaner than other parts of the carpet (kinda scary!). I also saw some say it leaves circles in the carpet and while it does do that just after cleaning, once the spot is dry and vacuumed with a dry vac, it goes away. My only complaint is that the mixture seems to drip out of the bristles/circular part, when not in use. We've taken to tossing it in the spare tub just after using until it dries out.

LOVE - LOVE - LOVE IT!

By Meetoo from Hanover, PA 17331, USA on 03/10/2013

I absolutely love this product. Its lightweight and easy to use design makes it simple enough for my 8 year old daughter. We have enjoyed spending time together actually looking for old stains to make magically disappear. Having the set-in stain option available takes the worry out of cleaning up an occasional dog accident. My only regret was not getting this product sooner. We LOVE it!

This thing is amazing, but leaking after one week!?

By Lily13 from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 03/09/2013

This thing is a god-send with a new puppy. And it even works wonders on car seats and old carpet stains... but we've only had it for one week and its leaking from the bottom like crazy. Any suggestions?!

Spot Bot

By Maryradek from Bensenville, IL on 03/07/2013


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like the principle and will definitely continue to use this, but it did leave a "ring" also it left the area too wet - it should have a cycle for just sucking up liquid. What I did to "override" it was to empty the tanks and run it that way to suck up the excess moisture. Otherwise I love it - really neat that you start it up and walk away - come back when it's done!!

Very disappointing

By GS521 from East Lansing, MI, USA on 03/05/2013

I purchased this machine 3 months ago, based in large part on my experience with Bissell's Big Green Machine for carpet cleaning. The latter is an excellent cleaner; the former leaves much to be desired. We have two cats and two-year-old twins, so we often have messes to clean. If the stains are on the surface, the SpotBot seems to get them reasonably clean, but that's not why I bought it. The vacuum isn't powerful enough to suck out the water it sprays into the carpet, and the brush seems to be just for show; it doesn't really scrub. Deep stains still need hand cleaning or the Big Green. I feel like I wasted my money and wish I'd just splurged for the Big Green.

Cat mess spots are gone.

By cindysnowleopard from Wilmington, DE, USA on 03/03/2013

The cat mess spots are all cleaned up and since they are why I bought the SpotBot in the first place , I am pleased with the product. I did have a bad unknown stain on the carpet and it didn't take it out so to me it isn't excellent but very good.

Works like a dream

By Quilter9 from Neosho, MO, USA on 02/26/2013

As a owner of 4 house cats and one with a hugh digestive problem and after nearly 12 years of trying to teach him to get sick on the kitchen floor instead of the carpet this is 100 % better than my hand held cleaner and getting down on my knees. Especially the first thing in the morning. Completely sold and wish I had purchased it sooner!

Handy Little Miracle Worker

By Sheila0866 from Florida on 02/24/2013

I had actually never seen or heard of this until this past week. Saw it in a store ad and did some online research. From the mostly positive reviews I read, I thought if it works I will have a friend for life. Three things in some reviews alarmed me a bit but like I said, I was willing to give it a try. Those three things---leaving dark rings, leabing the carpet damp and a dripping tank. I did experience the dark circle syndrome with the first stain but after looking at it for a bit, i realized that the Bot didnt leave a dark ring but instead cleaned the stain so well the the dark ring wadnt really a ring left by the machine but rather an indicator that the area around the spot needed a thorough cleaning. I did and that area looks brand new! I have light beige carpet and an older cat that has started having accidents. I also had some set-in old stains...coffee, juice and not sure what else. I am a believer! This little machine removed every stain without any effort on my part. Something several sprays and my scrubbing could not do. The carpet is left damp but not saturated and I did not experience any tank drip when emptying. This is truly my little miracle worker and I would highly recommend it to anyone with children, pets or anyone that's every had a stain on a carpet.

love this spot bot

By bri bri from Valparaiso, IN, USA on 02/22/2013

I first purchased spot bot in 2005, loved it still works til this day. I gave it to my brother and I decided to buy a new for myself. That model is currently not in production so I purchased the replacement model works terrific. I recommend it to anyone who has pets or small children great for small messes or even cleaning a chair. Have not had a pet stain that spot bot could not clean. I barely use my carpet cleaner since I got spot bot...

Miracle Worker!

By Dahlia from Andover, MN, USA on 02/22/2013

We have 3 cats, and one of them is getting up there in years and has been having accidents on our carpet. The standard spray of Resolve or Woolite just have not been working for us on the stains pets can make. After buying the Spot Bot we were able to get rid of all those stains! I like of the OXYgen formula better; we also have the pet stain formula and the 2x spot & stain formula and they seem to discolor the carpet after initial use. This is a great product for tough stains, surface or set in and the hose attachment is very useful!! Get it if you have pets!

Must have for an owner of a dog with tummy troubles.

By BillBlass from Wisconsin on 02/20/2013

I like this product & have used it frequently in the short time I've owned it. I have to agree that this product needs more suction but you can't beat the convenience. Its easy to move, fill and empty. I am going to try using the hose to suck up the excess moisture.

So far, so good - works on dog stains really well and removes smells well

By alexandrac57 from Dallas, TX, USA on 02/19/2013

I LOVE this machine. We've had a few "accidents" with our dog on carpet so far. Even on a set-in stain, it removed the stain and the smell completely. Literally works in minutes and you don't even have to sit there and watch while it cleans, you can leave the machine and go off and do other chores while it's working. I had read some reviews that the machine left the carpet very wet, but I haven't had that problem at all. I also read reviews about the machine leaving a "circle" mark, but I haven't had that problem at all. You just brush the carpet with your hand when it's dry and the "circle" pattern is gone (seems common sense to me). I also love the manual attachment, so you can clean up stains on chairs, etc (car seats, fabric chairs, baby car seats, etc). All in all, great purchase

Worth every last penny and then some

By Kca324 from Branford, CT, USA on 02/19/2013

I shop online a lot and never write reviews but this amazing little machine deserves it. My dog has a very sensitive stomach and unfortunatly it's not uncommon for me to come home to messes on my carpets that I feel as though when I'm cleaning them with tags and spray products I'm just pushing them deeper into the carpet. The Spotbot is incredible! I set it over the stain and in minutes it's gone, completely! For larger messes I may need to move it into a couple positions to get the entire thing but again, it only takes a few minutes. No more scrubbing or even touching a mess. All that's left is a damp spot that you can hardly even see. I don't know how I ever got rid of stains before this. I never want to be without this time/aggravation/carpet saving machine!

Great Machine

By Harleys from San Antonio, TX, USA on 02/11/2013

I have a large breed dog and small grandkids. This machine does a great job on cleaning up any messes I've had, (dog urine, juice and soda). I use the Pet stain and odor product all the time and have not had any issues regarding the stains. My only concern is that I have to use the hand held hose to get all the water up that the machine uses to clean.

LOOKS GREAT

By DEE from WOODLYN,PA. on 02/10/2013

Yes I had bought the Spot Bot cleaner, haven;t used it yet. But I did have something like this one from Bissell, a few years ago, and it worked great. This looks just great, and by the reviews I know I will like it. Have bought many many Bissell products before, and never had any problems with them. I have 3 dogs, and a bird, so far no spills or messes, for me to use it. But I have it and I am ready. Bissell makes good products they always did. Thanks Bissell, for all you do for the public, to make things to do the job, and make things to do it easier. Dolores

Takes the Work Out of Clean Up

By Kizzy from Scotia, NY 12302, USA on 02/10/2013

With 5 aging cats you can expect occasional mishaps. I was tired of getting on my hands and knees and performing repeated steps to clean messes out of the carpet. The Spotbot Pet Deep Cleaner makes the process easy. Our unit does not leak, as other reviews have reported, you can use any cleaner with the water mixture, and it's very portable. Why we didn't see this product sooner is beyond me and I'm glad we found it now.

Does exactly what it is designed to do.

By Angie13 from Oklahoma City, OK, USA on 02/07/2013

I received the Spotbot for Christmas and am just now using it. My dog has started throwing in our living room and there is nothing I hate to clean up more than dog throw-up. It was so easy to use. Filled the container, plugged it in, set it on the spot and it did all the work. I am completely amazed. Best part, I didn't have to touch any of the mess with my hands! It is clearly not meant to clean the entire carpet, but for spots, it works great. The only complaints I see on here are for spots that have been set in after some time. I don't feel that is a fault of the product. I would suggest cleaning up messes right away and maybe you won't have a staining problem. Also, the wand works great to get all that extra moisture out once the bot is done. Great product Bissell.

Time Saver

By Deanna2013 from Poulsbo WA on 02/05/2013

I purchased this product because I have a Yorkshire Terrier with stomach issues. I am a senior and had trouble getting down on the floor to clean up the mess. With this product I just clean up the surface matter and then place the SpotBot on the mess and it is gone. Also I had some old stains that the Spot Bot got out. I love this product

Great machine, has been a life saver with our rescue dog. It even cleaned old stains I thought my other machine sucked up, I couldn't believe how much more this machine got up. My first day I had crop circles all around my house, lol. Love how u just put it and leave it, I think that is why it sucks up messes so much better. It is a little loud, but I can deal with it since it does such a great job at cleaning.

By KB from Long Island, NY on 02/02/2013

This is my second SpotBot. The first one leaked after 1 year but I still liked the results so I purchased another. I volunteer for a dog rescue group so I have puppies in my home often. It does leave rings depending what cleaning solution you use. The rings do wear away with time and vacuuming. I just hope this one does not start to leak also. I find the hose extremely useful.

Mixed review - Mine fell apart.

By promizeone from Georgia, USA on 01/31/2013

After less than 2 years, mine has literally fallen apart. The screws that are inside the machine that hold it together, snapped. My suggestion is, to not carry around the unit by the so-called handle on top. With that being said, we still enjoyed using it. It was easier then bringing out the big steam cleaner to clean up a small dribble or mess. And with that being said, I also agree with a few folks that unfortunately at times, it does leave a perfect lightly dried water stain the size of the brushes on your carpet. :/ So I have mixed feelings about it and why I gave 3 stars... I've actually started using our upright larger steam cleaner and it does much better and doesn't stain or leave circles on the carpet.

Pet owner with new carpet

By Linda60 from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 01/31/2013

We purchased new carpeting, a nice light gray color. Knowing we have an older cat with digestive issues and a dog, we purchased the SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner. It has paid for itself many times. It does the job in it intended for. Yes it will leave a wet carpet ring but it dries and is not noticeable. We love the product! Also purchased a new furniture but have not had to use the hose feature (luckily).

Worked well, but leaked continually

By jriskit from Dayton, NV on 01/29/2013

I purchased this product after reading reviews and because it had a high rating. It worked well at removing the stain (dog urine) but when I was finished and put it aside (luckily I did not put it on my carpet) it continued to leak. Each time I would check the machine, there would be another puddle of liquid under it. I'm actually considering getting another one but am afraid I will have the same problem.

I love SpotBot!!!

By MerlinTheCat from Silver Spring, MD, USA on 01/29/2013

I bought SpotBot to clean my stairs and, boy, does it do a great job. The carpet in the stairwell is light colored and does not hide stains/soil easily. After my initial deep cleaning, I get it out about once a month for a quick surface refresher. SpotBot is light and easy to tote around. Easy to fill and empty. It has plenty of suction so the stairs are not soaking wet for days after cleaning. I am a HUGE fan of SpotBot!

It's absolutely GREAT!

By Clole's Mom from South Bend,IN, USA on 01/28/2013

I have a very small dog that sometimes just can't wait until I get home. I have a sheet of plastic down on the floor and put newspapers on it, for her to use. Sometimes, she just flat out misses the paper. Plus, the carpet is VERY old. I got the Spot Bot and tried it out. The only bad thing I can say about it, is the fact that I had to go out and buy a large shampooer to clean the whole floor because I found our just how much the carpet was really soiled! I wish the large cleaner would clean as good as the Spot Bot! Unfortunately, the Spot Bot just takes too long to clean the whole carpet, a little spot at a time! I tried that!

Works Great For Pet Messes

By PetMom2 from Richmond, VA on 01/28/2013

We have 2 chihuahuas. They are housebroken but do have accidents occasionally. The SpotBot is easy to use and cleans up any messes we have. This is one of the best purchases we've made. So much easier than spray and clean chemicals. Throughly cleans up any accident, no stains, no odors left behind. Great for anyone with pets.

My New Best Friend

By SuziV from West Bloomfield, MI on 01/23/2013

With one large dog and two cats, I am always cleaning up pet messes of one kind or another. I have had several other carpet cleaners, both compact and full size, that were adequate but not completely satisfactory. I especially was having trouble with stains from dark brown vomit on beige carpeting from a sick dog. I saw some ads and read a number of reviews for the SpotBot and decided to try it. It is fabulous at removing stains, so much easier to use than any of the other cleaners I've had, and very easy to fill and empty. It has removed some very old set in stains that I thought were there forever. I just wish there was a full size carpet cleaner that was this effective and easy to use for entire room cleaning.

SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner

By Donna65 from Mentor, OH on 01/21/2013

We have no idea how we ever did without this - this is truly the best money we have ever spent - we have 2 cats and one is older with lots of accidents and the other has her share also. We recently went away for a week and had a cat sitter - showed her how to use it and she also thought it was awesome. We've had it now for a couple of years and don't know what we'd do without it. We use it daily and it still does what it did the first time we used it. Do buy this - you will not be sorry.

Disappointed

By Lizzie from Mo. on 01/20/2013

Somewhat disappointed with this. Did not take up chocolate stains. It might have been because I didn't use the whole amount of the Oxy cleaner, which would have been most of the bottle for only a few stains. I have used it on some pet urine spots and they do look better and in some cases, left the spot cleaner than the carpet around it even tho the carpet was shampooed recently. I like the ease of use so I don't have to get out the big shampooer. Pet urine stains must be soaked up prior to use, otherwise, the spot remains yellow.

Bissell makes the best cleaning products!

By jazz5464 from Pa on 01/20/2013

Bought the SpotBot because I have 4 cats with food allergies (they get sick every so often) and an 11 week old Golden Retriever who's in training (potty training that is). Additionally, I have a bad back and can't continually haul out my big Bissell Rug Scrubber, so this really solves most of my problems. Cleans like it claims and is light weight to carry. Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I have to get down on my knees to soak up the remaining water/cleaner when the SpotBot is done, using the attached hose. With a bad back, getting down is usually easy enough, but getting up is painful. I hope Bissell develops a new SpotBot that has enough suction so you can just lift the unit and walk away. That,...... I would buy in a heartbeat. Overall, great product. Cleans even my worst stains. I love it.

I'm a dog sitter

By dogsitter from Incline Village, NV 89451, USA on 01/18/2013

I just ordered a Spot Bot. I spent a week visiting my son who has two dogs, one of them a puppy. With a visitor around (me), it was a bit more chaotic and we had two accidents with the puppy. Crack me up, my son whips out this little machine and goes to town on the spot. He was quite proud and I was wondering, where was this person when he lived at home! Anyway, the Bissell Spot Bot cleaned very nicely, with minimal fuss. I was so impressed, I knew I had to get one. I'm a dog sitter and I do have messes! I'm very excited to now own a Spot Bot! Here's a tip: if your carpet is not clean overall (like mine isn't!) you will probably end up with a ring around the clean spot, which will blend in within a few days. My son's carpet IS clean overall, and there was no ring.

This is my second SpotBot. I have found nothing that can clean pet stains like it. It is easy to use. I enjoyed using another Bissell product and that influenced me to buy the SpotBot. I would recommend it to anyone. I have not used it on any other stain but it works great on pet stains.

By Mama Bird from Texas on 01/11/2013

I have owned the Spot Bot for several years & have given it as a gift to family members with pets. It was convenient to use, but left rings on the carpet, which required an all-over carpet cleaning to remove. After sitting in the closet a few years unused, it now will not spray the water/cleaner solution, though the brushes still work fine. What can I do to get it to spray again? Thank you!

Surprised!

By bullet from Pompton Lakes, NJ, USA on 01/09/2013

If I didn't know better I would swear that some tiny men came into my home and created "crop circles" where I used my new "Spot Bot" to remove a set in pet stain on my carpet. I tried to remove the circle with the hand held brush with Pet Stain remover and the circle remained, Yesterday I lugged out my xxx Steam Vac and that reduced the spot after 3 or 4 passes although perhaps because I know where it is (was) I can still see it - a faint outline.

Love this product.

By bap1712 from Wilson, NC, USA on 01/08/2013

When I moved in my apartment there was a stain on the carpet. Although the carpet was cleaned the stain remained. Have no idea how long the stain was there. This product completely removed the old stain and several more since then. This is a great product.

Just what we needed

By Old Marine from Ortonville, MI on 01/03/2013

We have a cat that regurgitates infrequently but wanders around when it happens. The Spot Bot is a perfect way to clean up the mess and keep peace in the household.

Red wine and pet urine gone!

By Trixie from St. Louis, MO, USA on 01/03/2013

My son spilled red wine in a splash all over his carpet in his bedroom. After I cried for 3 days, I set out to use my Spot Bot for the first time. I couldn't believe it got the entire stain up in 6 minutes on the large spot, and then using the handheld hose on the rest of the splash! Wow! I also noticed several set in places of pet urine and used the hand held for those, and they are gone too! Great little power!

Poor quality

By Tammy from Charlotte, NC on 01/03/2013

Buyer beware. You will think initially that this product is amazing. When it works, it really is just that. But I have learned now after owning three of them that after about 6 months or so, you will not think they are so amazing anymore. I have had to buy parts and fix them myself many times. Problems such as the hose stops spraying, the hose cracks or the most popular...the machine leaks the dirty water you are pulling out of the carpet back all over the floor you are trying to clean. After having this problem with all three machines, I am done giving them a chance. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice and a third time, DUH. I have learned my lesson this time

Love it !!

By Roseanna57 from Indiana, USA on 01/03/2013

Recently got the Spot Bot for Christmas and used on several spots on my carpet...It is amazing...!! I love it and the cleaning solution is amazing also...Just do not use the Oxygen type Bissell cleaner on a dark carpet !! I didn't but the way it cleaned my light carpet I am sure would leave a "Bleach" spot on a darker carpet... I think it is an amazing appliance for "Spot" type jobs...I highly recommend this one !!

Amazing stain eliminating machine

By Bbrenne2 from Ohio on 01/02/2013

Easy to use, carry, empty and store. Works terrific on hard to clean spots and doesn't scare my puppy when it is running. Empty and refill is so easy, it only takes a minuet and you are back to cleaning. This product has made cleaning up after the puppy a breeze.

Mom of two and a dog

By KMM30 from Colorado, USA on 01/02/2013

New puppy ends up with Parvo and so we knew we had to get this. Bissell cleans and keeps the carpet smelling fresh. Love it, would not trade it for the world! I love that I can put it down, turn it on and get back to making lunch or picking up toys. I don't have time to clean the carpet every time something spills, so if I am running out the door I can turn it on and go!!

Christmas gift

By Red hooker from Red Hook, NY 12571, USA on 01/01/2013

Tried this with one of my dogs accidents, everything that was in the rug came up with ease. Both cycles take 3 to 6 minutes, the deep stains taking longer. Machine was quieter the expected, and the spot was definitely clean.

When it works, it works good

By Uncle George from Johnstown, NY, USA on 12/29/2012

We LOVE the Spot Bot!! But 2 weeks after we bought it, the water/soap doesn't flow to the scrubbing heads. We were told it must go to the factory authorized repair shop which is over 50 miles away...

No longer sprays

By Scooter from Minneapolis, MN, USA on 12/25/2012

Has been a good machine, however, the spray function didn't work the last time we went to use it. Not sure why - not sure how to get it working again - for now, it is basically unuseable.

SpotBot Works!

By jazzdork from Kansas on 12/23/2012

I can't say enough good things about this machine. We had a few older pet stains in our light-colored (nearly white) carpet that wouldn't budge no matter what cleaner we used. I put the SpotBot on them, and they were gone! It is so amazingly easy to use. So simple to add the cleaner and to empty the recovery tank. This machine was very well designed for simple use and effective cleaning. It has totally renewed the soiled spots, and our carpet looks like new!

Dream Machine

By doznoff from Pineville, LA, USA on 12/22/2012

Ordered this and was just amazed on how well it works. Even a friend of mine spilled wine all over his carpet and I brought the Spotbot over and it got every stain out with no problems. We have two Bengal cats and what a dream this machine is. Would recommend this machine to anyone not only because it gets the job done right the first time but also on how easy it is to use and clean up.

Pet Stains Begone

By Bay Area Boy from Bay Area, CA, USA on 12/21/2012

This little machine packs a huge amount of power. With 2 cats and 2 dogs we often get little accident spots on our light colored carpets. The SpotBot will take care of these in a few minutes. I would recommend this small, space saving appliance to anyone with pets and small children. Even when grown-ups have spills, you just put the machine over the stain and walk away until it beeps. FABULOUS.

Big cleaning power in a small package!

By Sunnygal from SW Michigan on 12/21/2012

I just used my Spotbot Pet cleaner for the first time today. It did an excellent job removing set-in pet stains from my light-colored carpet. I love how all I have to do is plug it in, make sure it has cleaner, and push the button! Makes a smelly, thankless job MUCH easier-the SpotBot does all of the work. It is a little loud, but well worth it to remove all traces of pet stains. I only wish I would have purchased it months ago! Also, I like supporting Bissell, as they are very generous to pet rescue charities :)

By John from Undisclosed on 12/19/2012

Our Spotbot order showed up super fast and ahead of schedule. The spotbot is great and we will use it a lot (two cats, two dogs, one baby). Thanks so much for getting it to us before Christmas. I will definitely order all my Bissell supplies from Bissell.com from now on.

Good For Small Stains Only

By George from Canton, GA, USA on 12/15/2012

Our SpotBot works well on small stains under six inches in diameter. On larger stains like those left by a dog dish it is of little use as it does not take out the whole spot. You have to move it time and again to cover the are and then it leaves portions of the carpet looking differently. Would buy a larger cleaner if I had it to do over.

Just what I needed

By Bev69 from Macomb, MI, USA on 12/08/2012

I have white carpet throughout my home and a cat with a sensitive stomach. Lots of food not staying in the tummy. The SpotBot works get and I don't have to scrub by hand or drag out the big carpet cleaner. Just set it and leave it. Can't be any easier!

It's a little miracle bot!

By MrsC from Aurora, CO on 12/07/2012

I love the SpotBot! I have 2 dogs always tracking in who knows what. I also dog sit occasionally for friends and family plus I foster strays until I find them a home or a rescue organization. I have lots of dogs coming in and out of my house. This little guy cleans up all their messes! I love it. The cleaner smells good and any urine stains are GONE! The smell is gone too. I couldn't do what I do without the SpotBot! Worth the money for sure!

FINALLY...

By BassetMom from Alpharetta, GA on 12/03/2012

'Good things come to those who wait', and I'm glad I was finally able to get my SpotBot! I have an old basset hound and a diabetic basset hound both prone to accidents that you sometimes don't find right away. This machine is a lifesaver and a paper towel saver for when those accidents occur. Just one thing...have the instruction booklet mention to use HOT water when getting ready to use.

Great Little Cleaner

By dthesat from Jackson, GA, USA on 12/02/2012

It does what is says it does and it does it well. The only downfall I see is that it can only do small spots so a big spot takes several cleaning cycles. Also the oxygen boost cleaning formula gets pricey if you have a lot of old stains like I do. That being said for what it was designed for it does and it does well!

Excellent Product

By Matt W from San Diego, CA on 11/25/2012

I bought one of these back in 2007-2008 when I got my new puppy from the shelter. This unit has come in very handy. I've used the automated cleaner a couple of times and it does wonders. However, I prefer to detach the hose and clean manually. I am able to suction out more water that way. Overall, excellent product.

Works GREAT and takes short time!!

By parrijKCK from Kansas City, KS, USA on 11/19/2012

We purchased one of these due to having pets and lots of family gatherings and I was extremely skeptical about it being able to work as good as stated. Purchased it mainly because the dog had got diarrhea on our new carpet and didnt want to pay to have the whole thing cleaned. Did the deep clean and it did exactly what it said it would do. Only thing is the diameter of area it will cover for one spot. But, it is light, easy to use and works great! It did its job! Would recommend to anyone that has pets.

A real life saver!

By LDavis from Los Angeles, CA on 11/15/2012

We lived in a rental house with light tan carpets, 2 large senior dogs, 3 cats, and 3 active humans. The Spot Bot is very effective, and best of all, it sets up in seconds and cleans up easily after use. We had a first generation Green Machine, which leaked and was a hassle to clean up, but the Spot Bot is a MUCH better product. I don't know what I would do without it!

Just what I needed for our seasonal rental

By ConnieB from Brentwood TN on 11/15/2012

I needed something for cleaning the furniture in our Vero Beach FL seasonal rental. The cushions are gold fabric and were showing a general level of soil on the flat surfaces. I cleaned the cushions carefully and was thrilled to have them clean, completely dry and useable overnight! This machine will be perfect for my needs and it fits easily into our locked owner's closet. I'm very pleased.

Extremely Dissapointed

By Dissapointed in FL from Wesley Chapel, FL, USA on 11/04/2012

I bought this product today. The first dissapointed was that the manual states that a sample of its Bissell solutionn was included in the box. There was no such thing. But that was not all. I used in two different spots. I noticed there was no dirty water making it to the "dirty water" basin. I even tried the manual hose. Again, no water running through there. Some kind of deep cleaning, huh? I am returning it tomorrow to the store and asking for a refund. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me....

Time to buy a new one.

By Tammy C from Texas on 11/04/2012

I purchased my spotbot in March 2012 and it has paid for itself. Unfortunately I expected it to last alot longer for the price. Today I pulled it out to use it, and set the surface stain feature...worked fine. Moved to another area and set the surface stain feature again it worked fine. When I went to move it a third time, using the built in handle on top of the machine, the whole thing came apart and the ribbon that connects the power to the electronic panel disconnected. I would use the warranty to have it replaced unfortunately I don't have any of the information available. :( Guess I'll be buying a new one in few months.

Needs sturdier hose.

By Barb from Alabama on 11/03/2012

It does a great job cleaning, but you have to use the hose to suction the water up. I'm on my 2nd Spotbot & just broke the hose again. The hose needs to be sturdier.

A must have for pet owners

By Tyler from Undisclosed on 11/03/2012

W got a puppy one month ago. Up until recently, we would have to get a pail, sponge, soap, gloves, etc just to clean a little "accident" spot. We got tired of doing this very quickly. So I went out and bought this after it was recommended to me by a friend. This thing rocks! It is so easy to clean up after the puppy now. This pays for itself in convenience after just the first use :) Build quality is good. Price is great. Convenience is unbeatable.

worst product I ever bought

By unhappy pet owner from Phoenix, Arizona on 11/02/2012

This is the worst product I ever bought, having three cats I needed something to clean up the occational accident. It worked great for the first month or so than it became a nightmare to get water to spray. I used to have to fiddle with the water tank to get it to spray but now nothing. Its headed for the trash.

SpotBot IS A WINNER

By Critical Eye for Quality from Cutlerville, on 10/18/2012

Purchased this because to clean dog urine on the carpet when he doesn't get our attention to go out. Have used this twice. Load the reservoir with cleaning agent, place over spot, turn it on and DONE. Machine sucks up liquid, disperses cleaner, scrubs the spot, suctions solvent and turns off. Fully automatic. Only wish machine ran suction segment longer as carpet is wet for too long. Just set it over the spoiled spot, turn on and walk away.

Great tool

By Jay S. from Indiana on 10/16/2012

I have owned the spotbot for 3 months now and it has worked perfectly for a family of 4 including a 3 year old boy and 2 year old rescue dog... cleans up the messes with little fuss while I take care of other things. Only thing it is missing is a heater for the water but I just put hot water in the container. This week however the spotbot broke, from what I can tell the pump that sprays water went bad. With it only being 3 months old, I hope I can get it fixed before another accident happens.

Review of SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner

By Wizbanger from Maryland, USA on 10/10/2012

The PetBot works well to remove pet stains. I would recommend to any users when using the power scrubbing head it to go over the same area with the wand vacuum attachment to assist in removing any excess residual water/cleaner. The power scrubber does remove a considerable amount of water/cleaner but leaves the area a little too damp in my opinion and hence a once over with the wand attachment helps. I also enjoy using the PetBot on steps or other small areas like under a chair or close to the wall.

Efficient, Easy, Effective!

By bontask from San Diego on 10/08/2012

I had been using a little green machine to clean up mystery spots and pet disasters.... hated scrubbing the spot so I finally treated myself to this machine. It is fantastic! I love being able to set it on the spot and walk away! The OxyGen formula really did it's magic. Thanks for the hint to use the regular formula, let dry and revisit with the OxyGen - I also had wonderful results. We have hiqh quality beige carpet - this SpotBot is really helping us keep it beautiful!

Works great when the machine is in tip-top shape

By adawgsmum from Irvine, CA, USA on 09/29/2012

Purchased the SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner 3 months ago (July 2012). I take good care of it, by cleaning out the dog hair, rinsing the two liquid containers before and after every use. My dog had an accident tonight and the sprayer and suction quit working. The motor seems to be working.. the automatic scrubbing feature is working. I tried to manually spray and suction the carpet, but still not working. How can I get this replaced or fixed? The SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner works great when the machine is in tip-top shape.

Set-in coffee stain...gone

By EH51 from Carrollton, TX, USA on 09/28/2012

We recently moved into our home. The light beige carpet had a set-in brown stain that resembled coffee that was not changed when I used my regular deep cleaner. While I bought the SpotBot to clean pet messes, I thought this stain would be a real test for the machine. I first tried it using the regular formula for cleaning. It actually made the spot look worse as it brought the stain up to the surface. I let that dry thoroughly, then used the OxyGen2 formula with the set-in stain cycle. It literally erased the stain and it is impossible to tell where the stain once was. I'm a believer! This is a wonderful machine and the OxyGen2 formula is a miracle worker on stains that have dyed the carpet.

Disappointed in SpotBot

By Phil G from Front Royal, VA 22630, USA on 09/28/2012

Bought it 18mos ago when our older dog started to have accidents before he died. The machine works as advertised, which is very well. I would give it a 5-star rating, except it stopped working correctly (does not lay down liquid), so it's useless. Warranty is only 12 months, and the closest service center is 65 miles from us. With today's price of fuel, it's probably not worth it to travel that far plus pay a service fee instead of buying another one. And yes, I would still buy another one; just hope the next one lasts longer.

Spotbot stopped spraying

By My boys' Mom from Warren, MI, USA on 09/24/2012

I've had my spotbot for a little over a month and use it frequently. One day I found what looked like a wad of sticky cotton and threw it away, not realizing it was the filter! Now the machine won't spray, is it gummed up from whatever was on the filter or won't it spray without the filter? Where can I buy another filter, I didn't see one for sale in the parts section

Does Not Last

By GoblesKen from Gobles, MI 49055, USA on 09/10/2012

This is a great product, but only for 9 months. It started to squeak and then the two screws that hold it together cracked the plastic. Finally broke through and had to be taken to an authorized repair shop. That shop did not even know how to take it apart, I had to show them that you had to undo the cord that was holding it together. Not sure if I have a lemon or what. Used it about three times a month.

This product leaks...

By Unsatisfied Customer from Texas on 09/10/2012

My first SpotBot was working fine until it began to leak after use. When the water tank was left on the machine water would leak out, so I would remove the tank. I took it to the service center and they could not find the leak. Bissell sent me a new machine. That one began to put out too much water during the cleaning process and then would not suction the water up. If I used the hose attachment the main unit would leak. It is useless to me. Very disappointing since I have a pet that has many stomach issues.

Great little machine

By Ganna from Lake Barrington, IL, USA on 09/08/2012

Bought for those little accidents around the house. Whether it's the dog or the grand kids this machine works great. Easy to use, does a great job. Kept looking online for the best price and found it right here on Bissell. Make sure you get extra cleaner because you'll be using this on every little spot you find. Just put on spot, turn on and let it do the work. I will be ordering another one for my daughter for Christmas. With husband, 4 kids and 1 dog she will get alot of use out of this machine.

Gets out stains, but leaves rings on plush carpet

By Karla51 from Grand Rapids, MI, USA on 09/07/2012

Its a great stain lifter, but leaves rings on my plush living room carpet. However, it doesn't leave rings on my burber carpet. I just cleaned up stains (not animal stains) on my cream colored burber carpet in my large lower level family room that have been there for a year or more that I could not get out with my larger carpet cleaner with any type of cleaner. I was shocked that it removed the stains. I will wear the machine out taking care of these stains. I give it 5 stars for stain removal.

SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner

By Ginger from AZ on 09/07/2012

I love the SpotBot. It is light weight and easy to use. We rescue animals and I have medical problems that make it difficult now to use the larger floor cleaner. We just rescued a puppy and it is so easy to clean up her occasional puddles when she misses the training pads. It is quiet, quick and deep cleaning, and like the scent of the cleaner solution. We also used it to clean the car

Not for me

By Lily from Reynoldsburg, OH, USA on 09/06/2012

I returned the Spotbot as it did not perform as I expected. I used it per the directions and it sprayed too much cleaner and it brought up old stains and left a horrible deep yellow circle. Then, I used it on a new spot and it did not completely clean it and I could still see a small circle of yellow. I use OUT Oxyfast Pet Stain & Odor remover so I think the cleaning agent probably would work. The Spotbot is the problem.

Raited fair due to quality Good concept but cheaply made

By UL from Missouri on 09/03/2012

I purchased this product a little over a year ago. It cleans great. But similar to other reviewers, the top has completely seperated from the bottom. The 4 screws that hold the top to the bottom have plastic mounts. Initially one side broke, then the other. Great concept for quick cleanup's when it works, very disappointed in the quality of the construction.

I bought my Spotbot 16 months ago & only used it about a dozen times. I had no problems until recently. Now when I use it it leaks the dirty water out the other end. It was well cared for but is just over the warranty period. I wouldnt buy this again unless they extend the warranty. I have read about other people with the same issue so it seems to be a defect in the product.

Doesn't work very well

By Chelcamp from Georgia on 09/02/2012

We had a Little Green Machine by Bissell that died 2 years after we had it, so we chose this one b/c of the ability for us to set it on the stain and leave it to do the job for us. I must say, I am very disappointed in this machine. The suction when using the hose attachment is almost nonexistent compared to the Green Machine!!! After spraying a large area of stain and using about half the cleaning fluid in the tank, I went over the wet area with the hose....the suction was so poor that the machine did not have the power to pull the water through the hose to the the dirty tank. I had to hold the hose up for the water to drain from the hose to the dirty water tank. Whether you use the hose or the spot cleaner on the bottom it still leaves the area very wet. I do not see how it can fully get the pet urine out of the carpet when it leaves so much "wetness" behind! So in a test, I used the spot bot then went back over it with my big carpet cleaning machine, I was amazed at how much leftover cleaning solution my big machine picked up after the spot bot. When using my Little Green Machine, we never had this problem. Will be returning the machine and purchasing the Little Green Machine!

Does the Job and Has Saved Our Rugs

By GeorgiaHome from Georgia on 08/26/2012

We have an older dog 19 plus and she now has mistakes. We use the SpotBot immediately and the rug looks great, feels great and smells great. This has been a life-saver for our house. This is our second SpotBot. We had the first one for over 10 years.

Great Choice!

By mlcriri from North Port, FL on 08/25/2012

So glad we chose this model. We recently had our puppy spayed and she spent most of the night throwing up! Needless to say, when it's midnight or later, it's great to just set the machine on the spot and it does all the work for you! Does a great job cleaning up "mistakes" too. Very simple to use.

This product does not hold up.

By suzyQ from Zanesville Ohio on 08/25/2012

I purchaced the spotbot pet 6 months ago. It has been taken care of well. It no longer sprays and now has very little suction. I don't know if I maybe got a defective one, but I would not recomend this product.

Great for a while

By rick from Undisclosed on 08/25/2012

We purchased this product a little over a year ago. It cleans great. But similar to another reviewer, the top has completely seperated from the bottom. The 4 screws that hold the top to the bottom have plastic mounts. Initially one side broke, then the other. Great product when it works, disappointed in the quality of the construction.

Had SpotBot for 1.5 yrs

By mravil7 from Sterling, VA, USA on 08/25/2012

Like the portability, ease of use, and it's lightweight. However, no matter what I try, the automatic modes leave dark crop circles after cleaning. If you use the hose tool quickly to vacuum-up the excess liquid then the circles are less noticeable. But using the hose after each automatic cleaning cycle kind of defeats the purpose/appeal of buying this type of carpet cleaner.

This product is not worth the money.

By Kizzi55 from Kalispell, Montana on 08/23/2012

I loved my spot bot - problem is that it quit working when it was 9 months old. The pump broke and I took it to the local vacume repair and I was informed it would cost more to repair than a new one would cost. They also told me they have these come in all of the time - quite often they have only been used a couple of times before the pump goes out.

broken apart and only 20 months old!!

By Chris22 from Undisclosed on 08/21/2012

My SpotBot hasn't been used that much (but I did like it at 1st), and recently hasn't been sucking up the water solution very well. Today when I used it the upper translucent plastic part suddenly broke off from the bottom part (on 1 side & then the other) when I lifted it a few inches off of the floor!! I couldn't believe it!! I've taken good care of the machine - never dropped it or anything!! When my husband got home & looked at it he said that the 4 plastic "feet" (that hold the 4 screws that hold the top part to the bottom part of the SpotBot) had broken off!! WHY hasn't this machine lasted longer? Of course it's out of warranty.

Pet lover/stain hater best friend

By Petlover58 from Sanford, NC on 08/19/2012

I love this product. I have 2 dogs and one cat and of course there are going to be accidents and with the cat an occasional fur ball. With the SpotBot, I just fill it with cleaning solution and water and let it do all the work. It is especially nice for those accidents that occur in the middle of the night. Who wants to scrub carpet a 2:00 am. Just put the SpotBot to work, go to the bathroom, let the dogs out, get a drink of water, within a few minutes the SpotBot will beep and let you know it is done and you can go back to sleep. What a wonderful product!!!

Love my first Bissell!!

By handysissy from Richmond, VA, USA on 08/17/2012

We recently purchased the Bissell Littlegreen Proheat and absolutely love it. We have 3 dogs and trying to keep the carpets and floors clean area a daily chore. After purchasing the Littlegreen, our next purchase will be a full size cleaner and vaccuum in the very near future.

So good I bought a 2nd one for my vacation property.

By Labrador fan! from San Jose, CA on 08/09/2012

I can't say enough good about this amazing little machine. After years of trying to clean up my dog's mistake by hand, and with a Hoover Deep carpet cleaner, I decided to give the SpotBot a try. This little miracle not only cleans up the mess, it also removes any odors. No cleaner or method I've used before has accomplished this short of calling a professional. The SpotBot sure saves my wife and I from arguing over who is going to clean up the mess. Have to say, after 3 months of ownership, I liked the SpotBot Pet so much, that I bought a 2nd one for our vacation property. I recommend it to everyone that has pets. Thank you Bissell!!!

Love this machine.

By revvie from Bear, DE, USA on 08/05/2012

I am on my second one. This is the greatest machine for people with pets. With five rescue cats and two rescue dogs it gets a lot of use. But it helps us keep a clean and nice smelling house even though we have the occasional accident. It works very well and fast and makes life so much easier.

Great little worker....

By Debbie C. from Fallon, NV on 08/04/2012

This SpotBot is fabulous. I have arthiritis in my wrists and hands, and I no longer have to use the wand to clean. This machine does a fabulous job, makes the spots look like new carpet again. I am so glad I purchased this.

SpotBot

By Diamond Girl from Seymour, IN on 07/31/2012

I love the SpotBot. I work outside the home, so my little Yorkie has potty problems. The SpotBot works great. It tackles the invidivual areas quickly and cleanly. It is easy to handle and you can clean at least two areas with one fill of cleaning fluids. It also has shown me it is time to get the big Bissel cleaner out to clean the rest of the carpets. The SpotBot does a deep down clean and you can see quickly when it is time to clean the rest of the carpet.

You'll be glad ou bought the SpotBot

By Nan from WI on 07/27/2012

Don't let the negative reviews prevent you from buying the SpotBot. I have a dog who gets sick quite often and leaves messes on my cream colored carpet. I was constantly pulling out my full size carpet cleaner to clean up the spots. It was time consuming and a lot of work, so I bought SpotBot for its convenience and I'm glad I did. It does an excellent job.

Glad to have

By Tammy590 from Mansfield, OH on 07/16/2012

I use this almost daily. It's so easy to just plug in and go. It cleans really well on new spots/stains. I'm appalled at the dirt that comes up when I just had carpets professionally cleaned! I have had no luck trying to get out a set in stain of RED slushie drink, even using the OXY cleaner. Any suggestions? I haven't tried on upholstery or car seats yet, but am sure it will work great!

By kimberly63 from chattanooga, TN on 07/16/2012

The product is small enough that you don"t need alot of space

By Friggie from Penn. on 07/12/2012

I cannot tell you how happy I am with the spotbot pet deep cleaner Was out visiting my son and he had a Bissell little green machine with proheat and turbo brushes. He had a pet stain on his carpet that had to be there quite awhile, I never thought it would come out. Within minutes rhe machine was done and I went to check on the spot it was completely gone. I had a few spots on my carpet back home and decided to get one. In turn I was told the Spotbot Pet is what I wanted. All my spots are completely gone. I was amazed. In turn I called my friend in Baltimore and she is getting one. Great work for designing a machine that really works. Love it! Love it! Love it!

spotbot pet cleaner

By lisa22 from Ohio, USA on 07/11/2012

While other cleaning methods have failed me this product did not! I have 3 dogs which vary in size and unfortunately accidents occasionally happen. I bought new carpet a year ago and even though it was staingard I got stains. From having professionals come in to trying every at home cleaning method I had some stains that would not come out! I bought the spotbot which I thought about for a while (another wasted effort) and tried it! The product holds true to its claims and did the job! I love it it's covenience, simplicity, and size and would recommend it to anyone who has pets! I'm very happy and my carpet looks great!

Spotbot is tops

By BreezeNC from Great Smoky Mountains, United States on 07/10/2012

I bought this after being exhausted having to pull out the full size heavy carpet cleaner each and every time our new puppy had an accident. Wow, this lighter weight portable cleaner is wonderful! Some reviews say it is too noisy, but I didn't find it any louder than most vacuum cleaners, and for only 3-6 minutes, it didn't bother me at all. It cleans well, although it seems to run out of cleaning solution pretty quickly. My only complaints are the circle it leaves in the carpet, requiring vacuuming afterwards and the wet spot that drips if you leave it sitting on the carpet.

I LOVE my Spot Bot!

By Tamibz from California on 07/09/2012

It's so easy to use and does an amazing job on both surface and set-in stains. I used it on several set-in stains in my RV....and voila! they disappeared! I have 5 dogs and 1 cat, so my Spot Bot is a huge timesaver for me. My pets' messes don't stand a chance with me and my Spot Bot!! Thanks for a great product.

By far the best!

By BluKawiChik from Maryland on 07/07/2012

I used it for the first time last night on an old urine stain from my Bulldog puppy and it cleaned the stain so good that I ended up having to clean the rest of the carpet with my upright Bissell Pro Heat Cleanshot 2x. The rest of the carpet was dirty. Well, the carpet is now done. So now I will be able to see any new accidents as they happen and be able to take care of it on the spot with the SpotBot. Thank you Bissell for coming up with this brilliant idea. Gone are the days of cleaning and brushing by hand!! I have also used the hand tool on my love seat and it worked pretty good! This is a great product indeed. My Bissell ProHeat cleanshot 2X has given me over three years of problem free service. I look forward to receiving that or more from the Spot Bot. Thanks Bissell!!!

Terrific product. Got rid of set-in stains on the first try. (And I tried everything prior to buying the SpotBot.) Love it.
