Rated 1 out of 5 by April Bissell ReadyClean
I'm normally a huge fan of all things Bissell. I have the ProHeat 2X Pet, the Little Green cleaner, and 2 weeks ago I added the "Ready Clean" to my Bissell menagerie.
I pulled it out for the second time since I purchased it, and used it twice without incident. I then took the Readyclean into the bedroom to clean some carpeted areas that my ProHeat is too big and clunky to fit into.
Grabbed a soda, took about 15 minutes to relax, then proceeded to insert the water reservoir #dirty water collector# and inserted the tank with the water/shampoo mixture into the slot per instructions. I then got my drink and radio remote control and was ready to have some fun cleaning my carpet.
It was then that I saw that the entire tank filled with solution and water had emptied onto the carpet! I looked under the water reservoir, and saw the solution draining out of the sprayer without any problem!
There are several complaints online about this issue...esp for the past 2 years, and I'm disheartened to see Bissell has not revamped this design or at LEAST put together a video of how to repair an issue that you guys have known about for years but have decided to ignore.
It would be extremely difficult to return this item, since it was bought online through an arrangement the company I work with has for its' employees #with payroll deduction#.
I am hoping you can offer a fix to this issue, since I currently have about 5 towels over the pool of liquid in my bedroom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by EM Leaked half way through first use
I'm overall satisfy with the size and ease of use, however when I moved from cleaning family room to living room, the whole tank of water would emptied out. I checked and re-checked to make sure everyhting was as it was supposed to and it did it again, this time I removed the water tank before it emptied out. Other reviewers mentioned this problem, I shoud've considered that.

Actually I have one so I bought two for our children for Christmas so they have not received theirs yet.they are very powerful smaller machines that I really enjoy it doesn't take up as much space and they do a very good cleaning job so I'm very happy with mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by momoftripletsabc Works Great!
I have 2 yr old triplets. I just used this machine to clean up a huge "paint" mess from not 1 but 3 diapers. I was honestly worried that it wouldn't completely clean the mess up, but my carpet looks good as new!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ReeZee Bought and returned
First off, the two screws used to attach the main handle to the base are poorly made and don't catch the threads - I couldn't tighten them enough to prevent the handle attachment from slipping during use. I managed to use the vacuum regardless, and the head is so small that it would an extended amount of time to do an entire room. Finally, when I went to dump the dirty water, it leaked everywhere. I'm returning it this evening.

I purchase it to clean my carpets in my part model. I have only used once and it did a fantastic job. Made my carpets look like new, removed all of the dirt and stains. It's exactly what I wanted a small, light machine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CleanerCammi17 Starts leaking after 1 year
I bought this in 2012 & hardly used it. Now, when I need it, the solution bottle starts to leak but I don't know where. I just dumped almost 1 bottle of solution onto the carpet in the apartment, so I hope there isn't any damage to floor underneath. I will not buy another upright carpet cleaner from Bissell again. So disappointed with this item & Bissell.
