Rated 5 out of 5 by Kathy33 Very pleased with this product.
I was so glad I bought this Bissell cleaner. I had a bissell cleaner from many many years ago and liked it also but it was time for a new one. This one is so much lighter and I like the way they have the cleaner formula and the water all in one. The older models had a seperate cleaning solution and a seperate water container. Also the best part is you can take the front plate off where it sucks up dirt and you can clean that all out. ( it now just snaps on and off)
I'm very happy with his product and would recomend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Usually happy with Bissell model 1623
I have owned Bissell products for over 20 years. Purchased this machine this week. Seems like a good machine, but has one twerk I am not as happy with. My new machine picks up dirt and water, but not lint. I physically had to bend over my carpet multiple times to pick up the lint balls left behind. It seems to rolling up lint and spitting it out the side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanc245 Great Carpet Cleaner
I purchased the PowerSteamer because it was lightweight and I can't lift the heavy cleaners, they're just too hard to use. I also didn't want to spend a lot of money on a carpet cleaner. The PowerSteamer is very easy to use and does a fabulous job and was a great price. My carpets never looked better. Only problem I have is with the hose for the attachments that is supposed to attach to the machine. I couldn't get it to stay attached and it kept falling off and getting in the way of cleaning. Otherwise, I love it.

Very happy with this product. Cleaning power and products were amazing and I was surprised at how clean my carpet got. Only issue is that it doesn't hold enough water to clean a large area so I had to keep refilling it, but because it was doing such a great job I didn't mind.

I love my Powersteamer...but please learn from my mistake and do not put boiling hot water in the Tank Base...b/c it will melt and then you will be like me having to order a replacement part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lonewolf23 This machine works great even broken
I bought the 1623 & was cleaning my 10 year old carpet & it was doing a great job but I noticed that the base canister wasn't sealing properly so I called Bissell & told them that one of the side tabs was shorter than the other side & they sent me a replacement at no charge. This machine got out stains from grapes that my elderly father was feeding to my dog until I told him that grapes were poisonous to dogs. The dog is fine & so is my carpet. Looks brand new!

My first carpet cleaner was the Bissell 8806 which I loved. This model 1623 is even better. It is smaller and even more compact which is perfect for my small apartment. The power switch has been moved from the handle to a foot peddle next to the release pedal. Much more convenient. The measuring cup is now built into the lid of the water tank. No more misplacing the measuring cup. The front nozzle now snaps off for easy cleaning. Before you had to unscrew it which was a hassle. They kept the best features. The tank-in-a-tank technology means one trip to the sink. And it is the only carpet cleaner at this price point that offers above floor cleaning at the turn of a dial. This is a winner. I always get compliments on how good my carpet looks after cleaning with my Bissell.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynda Easy to Use
This simple model cleans as good as can be expected for my carpets that are over 20 yrs. old. (I've rigorously vacuumed them over the years). From some of the complaints I read. I would suggest a thorough cleaning of the unit after heavy use, so that none of the pet debris clogs up or dries into the components. That way after it sits, the debris won't dry up glueing the working parts. Although I know there are lemons with any appliance. I owned a previous canister Bissell carpet cleaner for over 20 yrs., but it was time for a newer one. This is quieter and much easier to use. It also took out a stain that I never could get out from within the crevace of my wall using the crevace tool. Compared to the old canister I had, I do have to empty the tank more often, but still less hoses, less cords to hassle with, and lighter in weight for this old lady. I'm giving this one 4 stars , only because I don't know how long it will last.
