Rated 4 out of 5 by Jen Cool but Manual Lacking
After spending the day with this device I am happy with my purchase. At first, I was a little confused. The instruction manual and inserts do not mention anywhere that the deep clean tool is for carpets. The manual just said to use whichever tool you wanted. I used the deep clean on the chairs in my car, and thought something was wrong when solution kept squirting out the sides. It would have been nice to know which tool was for upholstery. Other than that, the product is awesome and I'm glad to be apart of the Bissell family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MrB Great little spot cleaning vaccuum
This spot cleaner is designed for small jobs and does a great job. The only issue that I'm having: I can't take the top off the "Deep Reach Tool". Is there an easy way to do this? Do I need to disassemble by removing the screws? Do I need to pry the top off?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dog Lover17 Product works great for pet stains...
I purchased this small machine to clean my white berber carpeting after my dog had either peed or pooped on it. It seems to work very well, and is light and easy to rinse out after each use. My one complaint is that the rubber "duck bill" gasket on the bottom of the dirty water tank leaks a bit and drips water on the carpet on the way to the sink every time I remove the tank. It's not a huge problem, but it is an annoyance. Other than that, I'm very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Mom Easy to use and excellent customer service from Bissell!
I have a lot of dog and people traffic in my house and I am now able to stay on top of the spills and such with this easy to use and easy to clean product. I am considering purchasing the big cleaner instead of renting rug doctor. I think it will pay for itself! When took my brand new cleaner out of the box and used it for the first time a small piece of plastic broke off one of the attachments. I called Bissell and they made replacing it super easy! I am very impressed with their website and their phone service. A+!

I have purchased a few carpet cleaners and this one is by far the worst one ever little to no suction to remove dirty water is not even as good as a $3 scrub brush

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sue Spotclean 5207A is a fine item
this item works as advertised. The only issue I have had is the lack of dirty liquid holding capacity before you need to stop using it to empty the dirty container. Seems excessively small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TommiR Great little gadget for old stains on smaller areas.
i bought this from Best Buy yesterday after receiving a coupon and using my rewards. My carpet next to my couch on which i live on practically, is stained with old coffee and tea spots and drops and short of calling in carpet cleaning service I didn't think it was going to be removed otherwise. But this little gadget acted like a semi pro and lifted the stains out. I only used the small white brush and not the DEEP CLEAN red one and it did a great job. But I did notice that the area looked a shade or two darker than the rest. I don't know if its the dirty water spilling out and me not noticing while I continued with the brush. I will try again to see, but i like it anyway

I had a carpet with many stains from the past and I finally decided to purchase this Bissell cleaner (plus, I have a cat that likes to deposit food messes around the house). I never thought the stains would come up and they did. Plus, now whenever my cat throws up, I quickly and efficiently clean up any stains. It's easy to use and very portable. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimbo Perfect product for small tasks.
I bought this unit for the quick and easy small jobs that seem to be the most frequent. I use it for spot cleaning pet mishaps on carpet and furniture mostly. It can also easily clean the carpet and cloth interior of most cars and compact SUV's with one tank full of solution. Ever spill a cup of coffee or a soda in your car or SUV ? This is the right size tool for the job !

Rated 4 out of 5 by momofdrummer Works brilliantly
This is a great spot cleaner! One tank-full took care of the area where the kids sit in the dining room and some footprints from the nearby front door. I had to empty the dirty water tank three times, but the second time was just before the clean tank ran out. I do wish the dirty water tank could hold a little more but that is a small issue.
The size is wonderful- it would fit under a kitchen or bathroom sink, or in a linen closet. And it is nice and light.
I am mildly irritated that the use of anything else in the cleaner voids the warranty. I had a massive headache after using the included cleaners. I will try diluting the solution more in the future and maybe just using water. I'd love to use vinegar, it is so annoying how all these mainstream solutions have "fragrances" which just make me ill! But this machine is worth having even if I only use the brush/suction feature.

What I liked most about the Spot Clean is how compact and mobile it is. It's not a bulky unit and it's very easy to carry around. It does the job that it's suppose to do. Would recommend to friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Soutmaster Lame
This machine by far is one of the worst motorized machines I have ever used.
1. The suction is so weak it barely picks up 1/4 of the solution it puts down.
2. When spraying the solution, it over-saturates where it is not needed.
3. The deep reach tool squirts solution out the sides of head. EXTREME pressure on the head is required not to do so.
4. Dirty water container needs to be emptied at least 3 times per full solution tank.
5. Gasket does not stay in place causing all sorts of leakage.
6. Cleaning solution costs a fortune.
7. Extremely loud for such a weak motor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Butch Poor design
Whoever engineered this model was obviously the last in his/her class of product design! (1.) The hose is too short, (2.) Spray comes out the sides of the deep cleaning tool, (3.) Instructions specify using the Oxygen boost in conjuntion with the cleaner and the supply tank is marked to use both but your own website doesn't show the O2 boost product, so how much cleaner are you supposed to use if you don't use the O2 boost product? Very poor instruction format!, (4.)It doesn't appear that the base was designed to have this unit sitting on a carpet, since the vacuum air intake is on the bottom of the unit!, (5.) It appears that you expect the purchasers of your product to critique your product and tell you what is wrong with it! Is this correct?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Safetyguy64 Cat suddenly lost her mind!
Our cat started to urinate on our bed and love seat recliner. I noticed a reddish stain and immediately called the Vet. Our 8 year old cat that we saved from certain death at the local humane shelter had a stone in her bladder. Seems a cat when in pain from such a thing it associates the cat litter box with that pain and looks for softer places like your bed! Surgery fixed the problem but now she was attracted to the bed and love seat. We tried oxy clean, pet products you spray to repel cats, car upholstery shampoo, tin foil under a towel to "Scare" her. Not one worked. The bed and love seat cost well over $4000 bucks. The bed is a sleep number adjustable bed. I went in search of a solution and the Bissell Spot Clean 5207 came up as highly recommended to take care of the problem. The love seat was stained a faded rose color as was the bed. We used Bissell 2X Pet Stain & Odor Formula 74R72 with the OXYgen BOOST Formula 0801A. The stains are gone and the cat has stopped leaving her rose colored "presents" on our furniture. I have the Bissell hard floor machine and it has worked well for over 6 years now. I just should have known to go back to Bissell for the solution. Thanks again for a product that actually works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BLJ98 Great Product!!
I could not imagine such a small machine could do such a BIG job!! I have my carpets professionally cleaned regularly and I bought this to use around the baseboards that the carpet cleaners could not get close to. What a surprise when the water was almost black!!! This machine is also great for steps and any area where you have a spot or stain. The people who commented about the water spraying everywhere, NEED TO READ THE DIRECTIONS and use the machine as instructed!!!

I was surprized to some positive reviews of this machine but
honestly this machine is a absolute piece of junk it does not
do any better than a hot sponge and dish soap and it's a
pain setting it up, you have to add hot water then the two
solutions and when you see the results you will ask yourself
was this really worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma B WOW!!!
I've had a few carpet cleaners over the past 45 years of marriage. The SPOT CLEAN is far and away the very best ever! So easy to use, light weight, and it REALLY works! After an 'accident' on a white carpet that I was certain would be the end of it, I went out and bought this 'little cutie'. #Thinking that if the stain didn't come out, I would finally replace this old bedroom carpet , and have a carpet cleaner for little spots and the stairs.# I can't tell you how surprised I was when this nasty mess came right out! I then went on a 'hunt' for other stains to try. We have a family of 15, 8 grand kids, 2 grand-dogs, so stains on the dining room carpet was 'SURE' to be it's downfall. Nope, it got everything out, even old stains of BBQ sauce, and another of hot cocoa with a shot of espresso!!! #I did that one myself, last winter!# If anyone doubts that this little dynamo isn't up to the task ---- think again!! I have recommended it to everyone! Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ozark Granny This Product Actually Removes Old Set-In Stains EASILY (without elbow grease)
We are an older, retired couple who absolutely LOVE our Bissell Spot Clean carpet and upholstery scrubber. For us it's a life saver in the figurative sense. It was well worth every penny we paid for it and it paid for itself the 2nd time we used it.
When we bought our home going on Nov. 29, 2011 there was a huge black stain about the circumference of a scrub pail in our master bedroom carpeting that looked like oil. We have no idea how long the stain had been in the carpeting or exactly what the stain was from.
We tried a spray on carpet cleaner that allegedly removes stains to no avail. It didn't phase the stain, it didn't even lighten the stain. My husband used our new Bissell Spot Clean scrubber on the stain on Sept. 17, 2013. He didn't use any elbow grease and he only spent about 1 minute scrubbing the stain.
Oh my gosh, a miracle has occurred, THE STAIN IS COMPLETELY GONE and our carpet looks like new, literally. We're both completely astounded because we thought we'd have to replace our bedroom carpeting to get rid of the stain.
There were several other set-in stains in the carpet: red juice and coffee. The Spot Clean scrubber took those set-in stains completely OUT of the carpet as well.
We clean both of our living room sofas and the loveseat once a week with the Bissell Spot Clean scrubber. It got rid of set-in stains from them as well as easily as if they just happened.
Prior to buying our Bissell Spot Clean portable scrubber, we priced the cost to RENT a carpet / upholstery scrubber in our local stores because our sofas had a horrible odor. The cost of renting a scrubber for 36 hours was $40, then with the cost of buying the necessary detergent and a bottle of the deodorizer, we would have spent about $80 total not including sales tax. We figured we would be financially better off to BUY a portable scrubber for a little more than the cost of renting.
When we read the reviews on many brands of portable upholstery scrubbers, we chose the Bissell Spot Clean which was one of the smartest decisions that we ever made.
We own a 3 year old Morkie and a 2 year old Yorkie who are sometimes covered with dirt, mud and dust, who lay on the back of the sofas & loveseat so they can look out our living room windows.
We also have Seventeen children who are now grown and Nineteen grandchildren who make messes whenever they come to visit. Our Bissell Spot Clean easily cleans up those messes without any effort on our part.
We now scrub our sofas once a week because our Bissell Spot Clean scrubber make them look like new and SMELL like new.
If you're considering buying a portable carpet and upholstery scrubber, look no further than the Bissell Spot Clean. You'll be amazed by the results!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary Lou Love my Bissell spot cleaner!
My sister had one and told me, don't replace the carpet try the Bissell first. So, I took her advise and bought the machine yesterday. Today I first read all the pamphlets enclosed instructions ect. It was so easy, never once had to go back to instruction, very well written. This machine is a God sent! I cleaned all the spots on my carpet. Mostly coffee spills and some food stains and a few pet accidents. I can honestly say my carpet looks like new! So much cheaper than replacing the entire room with new carpet. Thank you Bissell, first time using one of your products, forever a Bissell user!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wally 1 Junk from a previously great company!
Just bought the Spotclean carpet cleaning machine. I have owned many Bissell products in the past, Vacuum's, Carpet cleaners, which were always great cleaning, simple to use, that is until now. This thing made such a mess, the nossle sprays cleaner everywhere, including all over my feet. This machine is more trouble then it's worth. If you don't use all the cleaner in the side tank, it's almost impossible to empty the tank. My carpet is still wet from the mess this machine made. If this is the future of Bissell, I am no longer a customer. WOW, why do companies do this, did they even test this product? It would be soooo simple to design this machine to be easy to use and actually work as intended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sharon Not so happy
Purchased the Spot Clean to take care of pet stains. Assembled the machine and finally figured out how to turn it on (missed this on the diagram). I did the spraying of the stain first to let it sit for 3-4 minutes. The spray was coming out the sides and the front and it was getting on my oak furniture! It wasn't until I saw the spray reach the wood floor that I realized the distance the spray was spraying. Why couldn't the spray just come out the front so I could direct it right at the stain? I had to mop up the wood floor with a towel. Also, the suction is very poor to suck up the dirty spots that had been formula sprayed and I would say there was more water still in the carpet in comparison to what I was sucking up. I sprayed the entire container, which I filled up twice, and I only got 1/2 half a container for dirty water. I'm disappointed in these two things, but the stains are gone and it's taken 24 hours to dry. Sharon

Just purchased the Spot Cleaner yesterday and have been cleaning everything from upholstered chairs, toss pillows, stain on carpet, pads on patio chairs, now I'm moving on to the car seats. Does a great job and everything I've done so far looks and smells great.
My only question is...................I can not figure out how to attach the flex hose CLIP. Do you have a diagram or video on how to attach it. I almost think I have the wrong clip. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mother of two year old and english bulldog Its good
I just bought this a few hours ago, and it seems to be working pretty well.. The spot that my dog lays is quite large.. so it takes a bit of elbow grease to really get it good. Works good on our couches though, its disgusting how much dirt you get out of it. I wouldn't recommend for big areas with big dogs. Overall its pretty good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NYJess Works well for being so small
We've been renting Rug Doctors for years to clean up messes from both our children and cat. In between cleanings I have been cleaning up stains by hand; which worked well, but was time consuming. We decided to purchase this to alleviate my time used to do it by hand. It was much quicker and completely removed all the stains. It was even able to clean out a week old cat "accident" on our carpet (we were out of town and the cat sitter didn't see it). This is definitely NOT something for a thorough whole house cleaning.
It is easy to fill the solution/water and to empty the dirty water, no spillage. My only complaint is that the unit starts to spray water from the bottom if you get even a little over the full line. Otherwise, great product!

I just purchased this after lending out my upright and never getting it back and am thoroughly pleased. It's compact and has just as much power as my upright did. Its nice and light to carry from place to place and does wonders. I would recommend buying this to anyone who is interested in cleaning area rugs, couches, autos, rugs, stairs or anything else as I've tried it in every situation and have been very pleased with the results. Good job bissel !!!!

I live in South America, but while visiting my family in the states I saw a Bissell advertisement...having two Persia cats, I was always cleaning accidents. So I purchased the SpòtClean, When I returned to South America, I cleaned all my furniture and even mattresses, I couldn´t believe the amount of dirt that came from cleaning. Also your cleaning products smell so great and really do the job. Now when my cats have an accident, I spring into action using my spotclean . I even found a new use for the Spotclean since stuffed animals can´t be submerged totally, I clean them with the Spotclean and they´re like new without damaging them.

Sure is easier than dragging out my Pro Heat 2X to do small jobs. The 5207 does a quick, thorough job on small pet messes and dirty spots and stains.
However it leaves the carpet a little wetter than the larger Bissell machine, which by the way is a great machine.
And, someone missed the boat by not making the front cover of the Deep Reach Tool removable for easy cleaning like the Tough Stain Tool.
