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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TPayne4362 BEST I've USED
All I can say is Wow! This beast picked up every stain. WORKS SO GOOD U HAVE TO DO THEM WHOLE FLOOR BECAUSE THIS THIS LEAVES A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE. TANK DESIGN EXCELLENT KEEPING THEM WEIGHT ON HEAD FOR MORE SUCTION. Wow!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 3dogs 6 months later... not happy
My cleaner has gone kaput after just six months of use... maybe 10 times. At that per cleaning rate I could have almost rented a professional machine each time! No more suction. And the fluid leaks out in a trail. I have followed all the trouble shooting, cleaned out every crevice I could (though warning... you really can't clean this thing without unscrewing the whole tank.)
so that, coupled with the bad tank design, has forced me to lower this to one star.
I would try to return it but now can't find my receipt.
Am looking for a new manufacturer ASAP

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skelly87 Much improved from 10 years ago
We used to have a similar model purchased over 10 years ago. This design is much better; including the "Heat Wave" technology.
We like how Bissell has designed this machine to be easier to clean after use with better and easier access to locations to clear out debris.
GREAT JOB BISSELL! - Happy Consumer :)
