Rated 5 out of 5 by Petlover Love it but I wish we can change the hose ourselves
This is our second spotbot. We have dogs and children so this comes in handy. Our first machine lasted 5 years but then the hose broke and we had to bring it to a dealer to have a new hose put on but..it was cheaper to buy a new machine. If the hose could be replaced by the person who bought it ...it would be great. All and all I love this machine and I would recomend this it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by macey23 Not thrilled......Great for the first year
Purchased this machine in December of 2013. Lasted great for about a year. Now, the tank leaks (yes, I've checked the duck gasket and its installed correctly) and the bottom has broken off at the screws from the top. Very disappointed because I loved it! Came online to look at options of purchasing a new one but finding that most of the reviews state the same issue. Might have to look at a different brand which is a shame because I really liked this machine the first year I used it. Disappointed that it worked perfectly until the warranty was done. Looks like a redesign is needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by liljojo65 Leaks but.....
My SpotBot Pet has leaked from day 1 but I still like it. Mine doesn't look exactly like the photos here so maybe they improved it? I love the set it and walk away feature but as in at least one video I saw I highly recommend using the hose to suck up remaining cleaning solution left behind. Mine leaks in many areas but as long as I empty any remaining cleaning solution from the tank I can store it without incident. If it wasn't for the leaking I would have given the SpotBot all 5 stars.

My son and I purchased a Bissel Spot Bot the first year it came out (back when dinosaurs still walked the Earth). We have six cats, but have had more, up to 13, and we've used this machine HUNDREDS of times if not more. There hasn't been a stain it couldn't take out, including dried on pet stains, even the time I dripped white paint while painting the trim around the doors onto my brand new carpet. It took three run-throughs, but that paint came out! Well, today that wonderful, hard-working machine finally gave up the ghost. Not to worry, because we have two more Spot Bots in the closet. My son thought that because we liked them so much, they would be discontinued, much like treasured restaurants that close and TV shows that go off the air with record high ratings...he purchased me two more that we've kept all this time. Today I brought one out. Bissel, I am so grateful for this machine. Good job on a great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by rolex Tried and failed spot bot
Why can't I get a Bissell carpet cleaner to work? I have thrown away 2 upright carpet cleaners in the trash and now looks like a 3rd one. I bought the spot bot for our dog's mistakes. First the spot cleaner stopped working. The buttons do nothing. So not the complainer, we use the hand held wand. Ok, now the hose breaks at the machine connection, so we duct tape it, but that started leaking, That's it! If Bissell doesn't read this and send me a new one, I won't buy any other Bissell products... Hoover is next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Judy86 Love this machine!
I'll try to keep this short - I LOVE THIS MACHINE. Bought this to clean up after our dog threw up on our beige carpet leaving an orange stain. After some research decided to give the Spot Bot Pet a try. WOW am I glad I did! Not only did it get out the orange stain with ease it also cleaned a stain from 2 years prior when my daughter threw up. I tried everything else to get rid of the stain from her - even borrowed a large up right carpet shampooer but the stain kept coming back - until now! This tiny but mighty machine did the job! I am raving about it to co workers, friends and family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ancient46 After a Fix it Works Great
The unit as sent from Bissell had a leaking dirty water tank. the tank's sealer would not let it seat. It leaked and lost a lot of suction. After a few back and forth emails with pictures, I was sent a new tank. The unit now works properly with no more soaked carpets. If quality control hadn't missed an obvious flaw I would have given the product 5 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bri I has pluses, but does stack up to little green.
I loved my little green machine, so when it stopped working, I was devastated. My husband replaced it with this spot bot and while I liked the deep cleaning scrubber... The hose didn't clean furniture as well as the little green did, which was important to me as I have kids and pets and a huge expensive couch. First the sprayer started spraying wonky and then it got knocked over and started leaking out the bottom...so we scrapped it as a waste of money. It lasted us just over a year. We just replaced it with the proheat lift-off pet 2x expert series since our new house has carpet and I like that it can be an upright and portable...I like that machine much better.
