Â by Faithsa Not worth it.
I've had two of these. At first I loved it because it was small and easy to handle but after having it for 6-12 mos or so the plastic shield on the front cracked and wouldn't stay in place when using creating a lack of suction. It also leaked but it wasn't a big deal at the time as I'd found it second hand. I figured out that the part that needed replacing (the most fragile part of the whole unit) was not replaceable. grr. Ok fine. Round two. I ordered a new one. I use it maybe twice a month, have had it 2 years and 2 mos. The new one is dead. Same reason. No suction because that shield has cracked/broken. Not ordering another. Something with a wand will be much more useful. It is awkward on anything other than floor surface, it leaks, the reservoir is way too small and the scrubbing aspect is pretty useless. I'm staying with Bissell because I love my big floor shampooer but I'm leaning toward the spot bot pet or the spot clean pro for a replacement. You would think a company such as Bissell would make the weakest part of the machine replaceable. Grr...
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Clyan520 Very disappointing
I've owned a few Bissell products and been very happy with them, but not this one! I previously owned the Little Green Clean Machine, had it for 5 years. I loaned it to my mother since I wanted to get something a bit smaller since we were moving to a small apartment from a house. It still worked great. I will be purchasing another Little Green Clean Machine and returning the Spot Lifter Powerbrush. The tank is too tiny, it leaks and it is definitely not a "deep cleaner" as the name implies. Also, the cord gets very twisted and doesn't have anything to wrap it around so putting away neatly doesn't happen. It just doesn't work well at all.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Suzy123456 Good enough product, but don't get your hopes up.
I was very excited to get my bissell spot remover. I set about trying to get spots out of a kids matteress and was soon very disappointed. It got the dirt out but not the stain. If we had not been in the middle of moving I would have taken it back. So tried the spot remover again on the couch a few weeks ago. I let the kids try it. It did ok. I think this is probably good for stains that have just happened. Don't let it sit or this spot cleaner does not work.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by skibumj2178 Great... until you break the plastic piece in the front
I originally loved this little vacuum. It cleans very well, except for one thing. The plastic piece in the front is somewhat fragile, and is very easy to break. Once broken it does not clean very well at all. I thought I will just order a few replacements shields, but for some reason Bissell does not sell this part. I liked this spotlifter so much I purchased a replacement, then another. After THREE of these vacuums and no support, I am finally giving up. Very sad, because the stupid part probably costs them a few cents, and is not even screwed in. You could literally slide out the broken one, and slide in a replacement...if it was available for purchase that is. I am going to buy a different non Bissell cleaner in the future, in hopes that another brand will offer better support for their products.
