Rated 5 out of 5 by Daggy cleaning after dogs
I have 2 dogs and with all the rain and the dogs running in and out my stairs got kinda dirty. Thanks to Bissell I have the little SpotClean and this one is the best. I used the OXYgenBoost cleaning formula. The machine is lightweight, easy to carry around and the deep reach brush is amazing, really gets the stains and dirt out. My stairs look like new. Thank you Bissel for sending me the SpotClean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovesyellow Cleans very well
I had the "little green machine" for many years. It finally died. I was looking for a similar machine to do my upholstery and stairs. It was a learning curve to properly use the SpotClean 5207, but once you get the rhythm it works great. The finished job was great. I'm quite satisfied with it. Of course, the old machine was much more sturdy. This one is convenient to handle and is light weight. Hope it lasts as long as the "little green machine"'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by torodude leaks profusely
Over the past several years I've used a Bissell "little Green" machine for two life cycles and both worked superb. Ultimately I just wore them out. No problem.
I purchased a new SportClean 5207 at Lowes about 4 weeks ago. My experiences are as follows:
1. Collection tank leaked out the bottom when lifted to dump. Not good.
2. Several times the very wimpy rubber bladder on the bottom literall fell out when the collection tank was lifted.
3. If the collection tank wasn't put 1000% correctly in place dirty water would leak literally out the bottom of the clean machine onto the carpet.
4. The suction is weak.
5. Machine is very, very loud.
6. When I sucked clean rinse water to clean the hose the collection tank bladder made a funny sound and stopped me from pulling clean rinse water thru.
7. The spray nozzle didn't spray enough cleaning solution to be effective.
I took this machine back to Lowes and got another one thinking I had just one bad machine. And the second one was the same, nothing but problems.
I took the second one back, then bought a new old-school "little green machine" and I'm back stylin' and cleanin' like my original two Bissell cleaning machines did for many years.
Love the "Little Green Machine." I did not like the Spotclean 5207. It's not up to the standards Bissell has set for itself and customers have come to expect from Bissell. I believe Bissell should take the Spotclean 5207 off the market and simply bring back the older school cleaners that are, and have always been, FANTASTIC!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Captkirk Not what I expected
Not what I expected. I bought a cleaner with a heating element to keep the hot tap water hot. Which it did not. was cold within a few minutes. I bought a cleaner to clean upholstery and carpet inside our boat and cars plus the couches and chairs. The Machine leaked badly, I thought it was from the dirty tank not being seated but it was coming out of the vent in the housing. The deep cleaning tool sprayed sideways, it didnt matter how much pressure I used. It still sprayed everywhere except where it was intended. a couple times hitting me in the face when I was cleaning a vertical surface. I had to hold my free hand next to the tool to help direct the cleaning solution to the area I was "trying" to clean. When i held the 3" tool above the base, it would leak out of the connection to the hose. The hose is too short, but I expected that. I am disappointed in this machine as a whole. I do like the compact design and it was easy to put together and fill.
The brand name Bissell used to mean something.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mollysmom Hesitant to use again
I purchased this item in April and used it just once since them. I need to use it again, but am hesitant because of the fairly large tan stain it left on my carpet where the machine was sitting. I thought it would disappear with drying, but it is still there. Also when I went to empty the dirty water, the container dripped all the way to the sink. It also sprayed all over the carpet, including me when using the Deep Reach tool. I thought I had it far enough into the carpet. Disappointed!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PeggyKC CLEANED WELL BUT LEAKED WITHIN 10 MINUTES OF OPENING THE BOX
While the machine cleaned well, it leaked within 10 minutes of opening the box. Bissell wanted me to bring it to an authorized repair dealer, I'd rather return it since I didn't buy a reconditioned item, I bought a NEW product. It does clean well, but I guess I got a defective one.
