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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DB22 A simple question
I just picked up this carpet cleaner today at my local Lowes, but the model # has another number on, it reads 47B23. It was the same price and the last one on the shelf. Is there a significant difference between this one and the 47B2? I don't see any info on your site for this model # except something about similar model #'s.

I am enjoying my vacuum cleaning for its great suctioing power for pet hair and dirt.and the easy lift off for emptying the canister, I have nerve damage in my arm and the ease of pushing the vacuuum is a great asset

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wile88 Perfect for apartments!
I bought this for our small apartment and it is wonderful! It is light weight, but it does the job! My only issue is how quickly the solution runs out. It seems to be made for doing one small room at a time. It got out stains that have been in my carpet for years! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a low cost, carpeting cleaning solution for an apartment or small house!

a great inexpensive way to clean your carpets
the cost is so little for the Bissell solution and the carpet looks and feels clean like a pro did it

Rated 1 out of 5 by ttom Started leaking within 3 months
Bought this carpet cleaner from Target and at first it worked fine. But within about 3 months, I noticed it leaking from somewhere between the solution tank and the rest of the machine. Nothing obvious (cracked line, loose joint, etc) but I can fill up the solution tank and let it sit, not running, and watch the water level drop to zero in about 1 minute.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ttom Works until it starts leaking
Bought this product from Target and it worked fine to begin with. Then I started noticing that it was leaking somewhere between the cleaning solution tank and the rest of the unit. I can literally fill up the solution tank and let it sit there, and see the level of the solution drop to zero in about a minute.
They say they have a one- year warranty on the system, and they don't want you returning it to the dealer. So I'm planning to call them up and seek a replacement. I don't have the original packaging, and I'll have to dig up my Target receipt. Expecting a BIG hassle though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Farm girl It's as good as any, but...
The machine works fine, but the overall design is difficult to clean. That seems to be the case for all carpet cleaning machines. But the Bissell is really difficult to clean the dirt & grit out of the holding tank when I'm through.
Also, I don't see why all machines push their brand of chemical. I don't use chemicals because of allergic reactions. Certainly NOT Febreeze! Why do instructions always say to use ONLY these products!?
