Rated 4 out of 5 by Stan impressive cleaner
I am Impressed with this cleaner. It does a great job on carpet.
The cleaner is difficult to clean up after use. I had to disassembly vacuum head to thoroughly clean left over dirt.
The good thing is the dirt was in the cleaner not the carpet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GL523 Very impressed
We used to have a carpet cleaner but it eventually broke. We had used a carpet cleaning service for a while but they eventually went out of business. The tried another company and we were not overly impressed with the results. So we decided to look into doing the carpets ourselves. Someone we know recommended the Bissell brand. There were a couple of very minor issues I encountered in the beginning such as a missing screw for the hose mount when I was putting it together. Fortunately the mount seems pretty secure for the time being but I will need to contact Bissell to get this screw later on. When I went to use it for some reason the brushes did not work. I also discovered I needed to make sure the clean water tank was seated properly (otherwise it will not dispense anything) but I am going to chalk these minor issues up to possible user error. Once I figured these issues out it seemed to work fine. I was impressed by how much more the Bissell picked up even after vacuuming the carpets beforehand. The end result is our carpet looks great and smell good too. I can't wait to try the next room to see the results. Very pleased and great product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lemon Bissel carpet cleaner ruined my carpet
Bissel ruined my carpet by dousing it with soap and now carpet is soaked and company coming over tomorrow for thanksgiving.
I only used it one other time. This is a disaster for us!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Liam Perfect for my needs!
I bought this to replace the old ProHeat 2 that I had prior and after 12 years finally died. I have 1 cat and 4 fish tanks- sometimes messes happen. This cleaner works great on my carpet. The suction is amazing and the carpet barely feels damp once I am finished. It seems to revitalize the carpet, making it look not so limp and flat. Takes out stains and odors and leaves the carpet looking great. Not to mention it does wonders for taking the salt stains out that are present all winter long. I absolutely love this cleaner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Susan62 Best Carpet Cleaner I have ever used!
Just purchased the Bissell 17N4V and I am completely satisfied, for two reasons. My cat is 17 years of age and has begun spotting on my carpet. She just cannot seem to make it to the litter box. The other reason, my carpet is nearly twenty years old. I live in an Historic Community and the owners do not like to change things unless absolutely necessary. Being that my carpet is that old, still amazingly good condition, I needed a Carpet Cleaner that I could trust. I have rented carpet cleaners from Pet Stores, had good results, however, picking up the cleaner at the store, carrying the cleaner up 21 steps, is no longer an option, nor do I want it to be. This Carpet Cleaner is the best I have ever used. My carpets were fluffy, for the first time in years, dried in less than 12 hours and was so easy to use. Cleaning is a breeze, and stain removal, so far, has been excellent. Thank you Bissell. Should I need any assistance or have any problems, rest assured I will contact you immediately.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mrs Clean Ate my carpet
This was the second time I used the machine. No sign of trouble with the first use but on second use the revolving brushes grabbed a piece of 'yarn'-the carpet is a berber-and quickly ripped out about 5 feet, leaving an ugly zigzag in the carpet. I thought this could have been a fault in the carpet itself so continued on and it happened again. Just trying to clean my carpet for the holidays. Guess we'll endure until spring and have the carpet replaced. Very disappointed in this carpet cleaner!

Rated 1 out of 5 by PurpleDoxie Piece of Garbage!
I used it twice in the same day, and it proceeded to leak out of the bottom! I don't recommend buying this carpet cleaner!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beth I like the machine, but....
I've now gone through 2 tank bladders. They apparently rip easily. By virtue of the part reorder, I'm going to end up paying 1/2 again what I paid for an expensive cleaner. So - not really pleased.
