Rated 1 out of 5 by Chris5151 Didn't live up to it's claims. At least, not for me.
My son bought the SpotBot for me so I wouldn't have to get the "big" carpet cleaner out.
Unfortunately, the SpotBot left my spots bigger and darker than they originally were. It evidently didn't pull much water out, because we set barstools over the wet places and used fans for several hours, thinking that when it was dry the carpet would return to its normal shade of beige, but it didn't.
Needless to say, I was disappointed with my "machine". Maybe I just got a bad one, and I wouldn't be able to recommend this to anyone. My carpet actually looks worse than it did before I cleaned them. :-[

Rated 5 out of 5 by Adleigh8276 Great at getting tough stains out and convenient
I love the spotbot! I was hesitant at first to buy this product based on some reviews but this has been a lifesaver for my carpet. My puppy had diarrhea on my carpet and I had used many different products to get the stains out but it wasn't working, this machine took them out the very first try. I also like how you just press the button and let it do it's thing while you clean somewhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Parachic2010 One of my favorite appliances
This little thing packs some serious stain removal power. The simplicity of putting it over the spot, pushing a button and letting it work by itself is well worth the price! It even beeps to let you know when it is finished with the cycle. The included hand tool also works amazingly on furniture, I was embarrased at what I was able to get out of my husband's recliner, although I definitely feel better about it now!. This is definitely a good investment, it can also be used in your vehicle as well.

I purchased the SpotBot® Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8-A after my fastidious daughter recommended it. She's been using hers for years with great success in cleaning up pet stains and tracked-in footsteps from her children and husband. I add the Oxy-clean to the cleaners Bissell includes with the machine and, so far, the dog and people stains have disappeared like magic. Great bargain for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Linda S Somewhat disappointed...
Had the little green machine for years. Thought this would be easier and do better job. Cleans carpet but uses too much liquid and then leaves carpet very wet. Have used bother settings and had same result. Usually have to go over with hose just to get liquid out. Not what I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy J This does a very nice job of cleaning pet spots.
As I have almost no carpet, I bought this specifically for upholstery and area rugs. It does a very good job on my sofa, which I've used it on multiple times now. I used it on an area rug for the first time yesterday. The auto clean feature is very handy - and effective. I've been very pleased with the Spot Bot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kayla Right out of the box & no release of fluid!!
I was given this spot bot as a gift and have read the instructions more than twice and am trying to use it for the set in stains.. The brushes work, the motor sounds fine, but no cleaning solution is transfered to the clean tank or even my carpet... WHAT DO I DO? This is my FIRST time using it. :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by jnuc173 Works very well.
We have a new puppy and a new house which doesn't mix well at times. This device works very well on pet stains. I is designed for just a very small area at a time, but that works for our purpose. I like that it is light and easy to store. Takes no time to get it running.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deep cleaner Great portable cleaner!
This is great for removing nasty stains and smells. I have only used the hand wand and it gets the job done.
The solutions are hard to find for the portable devices and they are on the expensive side. you get very little solution for an expensive price. Thus, only 4 stars instead of 5 stars.
Bissell - Please reduce the solution price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by CrapBot No longevity, lasted only a year
I have two large dogs and got the SpotBot to clean up unwanted surprises. This thing is made of cheap plastic and quickly wears out. After about three months the rotating brush assembly no longer created suction. I read all the info I could find and attempted to get a repair quote. The authorized repair rep wanted to charge me $75 to fix a $150 machine!! No thanks. So for the rest of the time I just used the rotating brush to scrub and have to use the hand wand to suction. Today I pressed the trigger on the wand and water sprayed directly from the sides of the wand at 90 degrees! The cheap plastic had split at the nozzle and now the entire unit is worthless. I've had a Bissell upright steamvac as well and all Bissell products seem to be made to be disposable not durable. Will never buy Bissell again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvthespotbot Babies, Pets, Broken plumbing, oh my
This thing has saved us so many times it isn't funny. Diarrhea on the carpet at 3 am from a sick three year old? No problem! Urine/vomit from pets and kids? It gets it right out. Plumbing leak in the kitchen, gallons of water sitting underneath the floor of the cabinets? Detach the hose and off you go. I am also going to try to clean the cloth seats of my car with the detachable hose - we'll see how it goes but I'm sure it will be great for that as well. I love the ease of use and the pleasant smell of the cleaning products. The unit is rather heavy but that hasn't been much of an issue. If you have pets/kids, this unit will save you some headaches for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katsjazz Absolutely terrific for pet messes!
Love, love, love the convenience and effectiveness of the SpotBot. I have two small dogs that occasionally eat something that they shouldn't. And, unfortunately, that manifests in something completely disastrous usually in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping. The SpotBot makes it a cinch to clean up the nasty mess. This is, without a doubt, the best small carpet cleaner I've ever owned. The extendable hose feature is just great. Thanks, Bissell, for creating a great product (my dogs are grateful, too)!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sore Spot Bot Worked until it didn't. Boo less than 6 months old
I recently moved to a new home where I have very light cream carpet and I bought the Spot Bot to help with my kitties hairball issues. It worked great for the first few months after my learning curve of using the hose option instead of the other to aviod leaving a ring on the carpet. My problem is that the Spot Bot did not hold up very well. After a few months of very light usage, the nozzle on the hose attachment where the cleaning solution is dispensed broke and now the water just dribbles out. Next the whole thing separated from the base so when I pick it up by the handle it almost breaks into two peices and I have to carry it from the bottom, it also leaks both the cleaning solution and the dirty water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by middleprincess love this
I bought my first one over 10 yrs ago and I just had to replace it this year. I used this on every room and thru 8 dogs. it really works good on furniture too. The only thing is it cost the same as I paid for it 10 yrs ago. the sprayer quit spraying and it started not picking up all the water. it was the best for spot cleaning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hank great machine except for the hose , loud noise
I habve had the machine since they came out years ago. They are great for pet accidents, but the hose on the machine is old and became stiff. not bendable like it was when new. I just use water to clean it has been wonderful.
It would be better if it had a more flexable plastic hose.
The noise is LOUD, there were many times I wanted to use it at night but could not because of the loud noise.
Other than the 2 problems it is great and if you have pets or multiple pets plus carpet, the it will help. Get one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Isabel47 Easiest Way to Clean Up Pet Accidents
I have used this machine for one month and I love it. I place the machine over the pet stain and sit down. When the machine beeps that it is finished, I look at where the spot was. Yes, the spot is cleaned up. ...gone! I remember how many times I had to treat and retreat my pet's accidents prior to SpotBot® Pet Deep Cleaner. I recently ordered a power attachment for the hose so I can clean my carpeted steps with less effort. This is the first machine made for pet stains. Of course, I use the products that are made for the machine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lucky23 A bit disapointed
I have light colored carpet and I first used this on the auto setting. It got the spot out, but left a dark ring around the area. I then used it manualy and it did not get out the dark ring and the middle that looked clean is now dark again. I used the pet stain remover. I will try again with the other cleaner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Casey67 Unbelievable
I got the SpotBot because I had some problems with various carpet stains and because my sister had one and raved about it. Now I'm raving about it. I had a spot in a spare bedroom that I think had been there literally for years; I spent more time than I can recall on my hands and knees with this cleaner and that cleaner trying to get it up. I figured, what the heck, lets see what the SpotBot will do, I wasn't expecting much, but the spot is gone! The SpotBot is stupid easy to use, it's lightweight and just about idiot proof. I can't think of enough superlatives. Wish I had gotten one sooner.

FINALLY! Our stairs are free of those heavy-traffic area spots that never came clean no matter what type of cleaners or tools we used. Carpet looks like new again. And SO easy to use! I'm sitting here writing this review while it works!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MikeG Works as promised
Got the machine to clean up the occasional cat messes around the house.
Works well so far.
My only complaint is the cleaning area is too small. I need to make a series of cleanings across a single mess.
Overall, it does a good job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DogMama So disappointed and discouraged with Bissell
I've had 2 of these. My first one, which I used probably 10-12 times, worked great. Unfortunately, my life got interrupted by cancer and chemo. Once I was through with my treatment and life was back to normal, I reached for my SpotBot to clean a pet stain and it would not even turn on! This past winter I was lamenting to a friend that I didn't have a working SpotBot for cleaning up pet stains. She told me she had recently bought one but not used it, opting instead to let her husband clean up the pet stains with their full-sized cleaner. She offered it to me and I jumped at the chance to have another. At this point, I was thinking the first machine was just a rare lemon. The new one worked great for about 6 months. Then it began to act up as others have mentioned. Apparently, it's not spraying the solution, even though it APPEARS to be going through the cycle. I'm told I have to produce my receipt to get it worked on under warranty at one of the authorized outlets, but since it was gifted to me, I don't have a receipt. Is it possible that I'm just TWICE unlucky or is SpotBot an inferior product? BTW, I used ONLY Bissell products in both machines. Now I'm stuck with 2 dead machines and several bottles of solution I can't use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SteelersMom Cleans up my worst housekeeping nightmares
My personal worst cleaning nightmare is dog diarrhea in the dining room -- which is what I discovered this morning. Fortunately I had bought a SpotBot about a month ago. This was its first acid test. After picking up what could be picked up, I sprayed it down with Eeeeeeew (a Bissell product sold at pet stores specifically for pet stains and odors). I used the SpotBot formula for set-in stains to get maximum cleaning power, but pressed the button for suface stains to avoid grinding the disgusting stuff further into my cream-colored carpet. After the SpotBot was done with all the stains you would never know anything bad had happened in that room. It was amazing.
I have two minor quibbles. One, mentioned by another reviewer, is that the dirty water tank tends to leak when you empty it -- which is disgusting. I place it completely inside the sink before trying to empty it so it won't spill on me or the floor.
The other is that while the Oxygen Boost formula for set-in stains works like magic, it requires a lot of the liquid, which comes in very small bottles. I get only a little over two tankfuls per bottle, which isn't enough on a morning like this. They should sell it in gallon containers.
Before I got the SpotBot I was trying to figure out how to find the money to rip out all my carpet and replace it with laminate before the family next gathers at Thanksgiving. Thanks to the SpotBot I can put that off for at least another year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ginny Extra hints on Spotbot pet cleaner
In order to help with the circle left on the carpeting I find using the hose attachment with suction only sucking up the excess water after cleaning helps to make the circles not as visible. Be sure to clean the hose afterwards.
I also turn the solution tank upside down on the machine to prevent as much leakage. I also leave the cleaning part of the machine over a sink overnight to dry out. I store the machine on a plastic tray to catch any excess water.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CM Above average performance, avg reliability
Collection tank is easy to keep clean.
Good gasket design of collection tank.
The body of my unit separated at the solution side of the tank after 1 year of use.
Cleaning solution would leak if left in the unit.
The "spot cleaning" feature would leave excess water.

This machine has saved me a lot of time and energy...I didn't have to set up my full-sized machine every time there was a pet accident. My sixteen week old pup is almost 100% house trained, but there are still occasional accidents
