Rated 2 out of 5 by Northern's Lady Does it's job
I have used this machine a few times now. It cleans the carpet well and is easy to use. The negatives I have come across are that it seems to trip the internal circuit breaker for no reason which stops the power brush from turning. To reset this you have to turn the machine off and unplug from the wall, kind of a hassle. Only other thing I would change is give it a longer cord and larger freshwater supply tank.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Clomedico How do the accessories fit in the caddie?
just bought our second bissell. Having issues in putting the stain trapper and the other tool in the caddie.
Looks like I am not the only one.
bissell - great you can respond to the negative feedback but how about posting the steps to put the stain trapper and upholstery tool?

Anyone figure out how to attach the Pet/Mess tool to the caddy? The manual is no help. Neither is searching online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Radar Love the Bissell Proheat 2X Healthy Home Pet Deep Cleaning System
I purchased my first Bissell Upright about three weeks ago and just used it for the first time today. I absolutely love this cleaner. I have been in my home for some time now and we normally don't wear any shoes on the carpet, but it was time for a cleaning. There are only two of us in the house, so the carpet was not too bad.... so I thought. Man this cleaner really pulled the dirt out of the carpet and it worked perfectly. I read the directions a couple of times and even watched YouTube before I attempted to clean the carpet. NO Problems at all! I love it and actually ordered some of the parts (gaskets, belts, etc) that will probably wear out. Do not anticipate any problems, but pays to be prepared. I did quite a bit of research of other brands and feel I got the best bang for my buck. I have read some other reviews and some of the other users don't seem to be happy with their Proheat 2X. All I can say is take your time and be patient using the cleaner. I will update my review a little later as I use the cleaner more and I see if it continues to meet my expectations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Hate this carpet cleaner Doesn't work efficiently!
I bought this machine about 5months ago. This was the second time I used it and I know remember why.... I have to shut it off and clean it after every 2 strokes.... It gets clogged so easy over nothing at all. It's cat hair. Well this was bought for pet use. Dot worry. Oreck is getting a nasty review too bc there is no reason this cleaner Should be picking up this much cat hair. I vacuum all the time and at every direction. My family hates it. Anyways for one room it takes me 3 hours since I have to clean the machine every 5 sec literally no thought by purchasing my own cleaner would save me a few bucks from having them professionally done. I was wrong. It it the worst investment I made!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jg1982 Love the machine hate the manual
Love the machine and how easy it is to use. So effective and easy to use I started doing one room and ended up doing the entire house including stairs the same day! The downside is the manual, the illustrations are poorly made. I cannot distinguish were the accessories are supposed to go.

have changed belts 3x in past two years and have to tear down frequently to clean and inspect. Has just quit again and do not have repair center within 80-100 miles so will prob ably have to just replace unit with another. If used frequently I do not recommend unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yvonne Good for carpet, not very good for hard floor
I find this cleaner to be a very good carpet cleaner, however, I was excited to use this also for my tile floors and ordered the attachment. I do not think that the cleaner is doing a good job beyond a superficial cleaning, but my main complaint is that it does not suction the water up very well after the cleaning. I had to manually mop up water residues, it was too wet. Bottomline, I am still looking for an excellent hardwood floor cleaner.
