Check out some reviews from Walmart

This machine kicks butt. So far it has pulled the following out of our carpet - some months and 2 previous cleanings later.

1. Coffee
2. Soda
3. Dog Vomit.
4. The Dread Dog Poop Kaleidoscope
5. General? That shows up on a beige carpet.

It's easy to use, heats up fast, and does work well on stairs and as a spot cleaner.

Cleans ups are a bit of a pain if you have pet hair, as it will permeate every possible unreachable crevice of the hoses and attachments. To clean the brush base, you will need a screw driver for 3 screws - it's still really simple.

Also, we paid over $200 for ours 2 years ago. This is a damn good price.

The most comparable item over at the mothership seems to have several nice hose attachments including one for crevices. This one has a vague mention in the features section of this:
"3" tough stain tool is designed for cleaning stairs, upholstery and hard-to-reach areas"

The "in the box" section just says:
"this here doohickey we're trying to sell you"
(my paraphrase).

Is there any chance we can get a better list of attachments? I'd really love to pick one of these up, but scrubbing crevices with the end of a hose isn't my kind of party, and this being a referb it seems like included accessories might be a crap shoot.
(Any and all perceived double entendre is unintintional, incidental, and in your imagination, try to act like adults people)

I looks just like this thing.



I would like to add that it does a pretty darn decent job, though I prefer the (not included here) Pet Attachment. Which is essentially the same tool, with rubber knobby things that dig at the carpet for extra gross getting.

So you're saying the referb version definitely does come with that one, but definitely does not come with anything else? Any staff that can confirm?

I'm saying that is the tool that matches the description on the sale page.

"3" tough stain tool is designed for cleaning stairs, upholstery and hard-to-reach areas"

I can't confirm anything other than what's listed on the sales page - and no other attachments are listed as included.

I thought that might be the case, but thanks for your help anyway. Apparently the woot masters are too busy talking cranky wooters with slow orders off the ledge to have enough time to take my moneys. Maybe I'll get to click the button tomorrow if they don't sell out... and someone with access to info beyond google feels like chiming in.

Hi @thumperchick. Wondering about cleaning the tanks.
I have a cat who has a very touchy gut as far as fur balls. I little hair and up it comes along with, well you get the idea.
So lots of cat barf. (Yes, have seen the vet about it. Kitty is ok. ) But I do all the spot cleaning on my hands and knees. : (
Would this work ? Obviously I would pick the "chunks" up. And how hard and how much time does it take to clean the tanks after use for such a small but potent spot ?

TL/DR : Is it worth taking out the machine for small jobs ?

PS how much does it weigh ?

If there is no handpiece, how does it compare to this model:

This has a 3 year warranty and a handpiece.

Bought one of these at Walmart last year and it rocks. Some stats: 2 dogs, 2 cats, kids. We have a very tough to clean berber style rug and this machine does better than any other home machine has. For small, er, concentrated areas of stain (puke, poop, pee, mud) the handheld wand is great. Has its own sprayer and good suction. The whole motor and two tanks unit comes off the blue base/handle part very easily, so you can use the cleaner for places like the car. For that, its just awesome (think old, stinky chocolate milk spills). So, basically a year in and its doing great. For whole room cleaning, the tanks are a bit small and have to be filled/emptied fairly often, but that hasn't been a major drawback.

Anyone know how this works with shag rugs or high pile carpeting?

I didn't see any 'restrictions' in the description, so I'm guessing it's okay. I guess I'm just looking for someone that's tried it with a higher pile.

(We'll be using it to shampoo high traffic areas, no stains)

Anyone know how easy this machine is to clean?

I have an older model and like it because it's pretty easy to get all of the gunk out of it after using it. Is this one similar or do you have to leave a lot of the fuzzies behind when putting it away?

I have a dog who likes to secretly pee on a carpet that has built in "pee camouflage", so every few months or so I rent a Rug Doctor and use the Nature's Miracle Carpet cleaner to catch any spots that may be hiding. Would this machine do the same thing for me? It would pay for itself after three uses.

Yes. These things - no matter what model or manufacturer - do as good a job if you clean regularly as a Rug Doctor would do "every few months."

The thing to remember is even a Rug Doctor requires you to vacuum the carpet first. Anything that won't dissolve or be caught in the water and soap won't get picked up - so you may get a ton of pee or poop or Dr. Pepper - be quick with that last one - off the carpet, but you'll end up with the deep clean machine clogged with hair, fluff and anything bigger than a grain of sand.

I currently own a Hoover SteamVac which is getting on 5 years old now and is dying monthly - the brushes quit spinning and it needs constant cleaning of itself. The entire thing is air-driven (no belts) so any blockage kills it, and the time it takes to get the thing ready to clean (filling tanks, soap, maneuvering it because it weighs a metric ton) the water isn't as hot as it might need to be.

Just because of that, I just bought this thing. Belt driven, easy to lug from the garage to the stain, and keeps the water hot! If it lasts as long as the Hoover did, it will have been worth it.

Also; don't skimp on the soap just because you would use it more regularly. Stick to Nature's Miracle or Resolve or the cleaner-brand pet solution. Don't think that for half the price a Walmart carpet soap will do anything more than half the job..

(I'm keeping the Hoover, since it does hard floors like tile and laminate, and does a terrific job as long as it's practically maintained)

I believe the similiar model is the Bissell 66E1 found here: pretty decent reviews; but a lot of suction issues...

This is an awesome machine when new. Foes anybody know how a refurbished model does. And I can't find any info on why the machine was refurbished. Anyone have an idea, on this topic or experience? Thank you.

I noted a question regarding the 3" tool. No one has confirmed that the tool is in the box. Can anyone actually confirm that it is?

I would also like to know if the machines were all refurbished due to a specific problem

The tanks lift right out and are pretty easy to rinse out. For small spot clean jobs, I don't even use the cleanser in the tank - just spray with my pet carpet cleaner spray and use the tank to lift out the mess.

Weight - it's not heavy, but once the water is in the tanks, it isn't light either. I lug it around on my stairs a few times a year and it doesn't get too cumbersome.

A brand new Bissell is $143 (with prime shipping) on the mothership. How is this Woot a deal? Amazon one also includes the little spot tool.

Thats a completely different model. It doesnt have the "lift off" feature.

I decided to buy woot's Bissel today because my old carpet cleaner weighs a ton and leaks. Its pretty old and the water tank has been held on by a bungie cord for years. I had a separate portable cleaner for cleaning the car or small messes on the run (cat puke usually) but it just stopped working last month. Hopefully this Bissel will mean I can throw away both of the old machines

I have had one of these for almost a year now, its great for spot cleaning, sucking farts out of car seats, cleaning the carpet in your car, and cleaning area rugs. I have only ever used a larger bissel cleaner, and they both did a great job and are comparable. The only downside to this model is that because it's a lift off the tanks are pretty small so if you use it in a large area you will be refilling and emptying it a lot. But at the same time it has the lift off feature which kind of makes up for it due to how nice it makes it for cleaning out your car. Also this is a great price, im pretty sure these are still like 250.00 new at walmart.

Received it on Friday and used it Saturday. Works great and learned how nasty my carpets were (even though I vacuumed and washed before with a crappy washer I had).

A little bit of a pain to clean (have to disassemble stuff like unscrewing the vacuum nozzle and removing the end caps for the brushes) but since it's not a daily thing it's not a big deal.

Very nice!

So the Woot ad states this:

Warranty: 3 Years Bissell

Yet there was a very large sticker on the user manual that stated refurbished items only have a 90 days warranty. I wouldn't have bought if I knew the warranty was only 90 days given the crappy experience I've had with other refurbished Woot appliances before.

Edited to add that our machine is also black, not blue (not that I care - just another mistake in the ad).

I'm sorry for the discrepancy in the warranties. We are looking into it now. CS will email when we have a resolution.

This works great! It was easier to use than I thought! It seems to have gotten all the stains that I was concerned about completely out.
It was reconditioned, not dirty at all, but a little hair on the brushes and there was dampness, so if that sort of thing turns you off, buy a brand new one.
It comes right off the frame easy enough for spots, but I haven't used it like that yet.
It was a god price, did a good job and was not to hard. The carpet dried overnight and feels clean now.
So if you are on the fence, buy it, I'm glad I did.

July 5th 2014: exactly 6 months after it arrived, the spot cleaner hose managed to shear itself off the attachment housing.

That part isn't available except via an authorized repair dealer (pretty much everything else like gaskets is available here: http://www.bissell.com/parts/?id=9143&sc=product&productid=26940&st=1)

It still works when attached to the upright - which is a more powerful carpet clean, but no good for getting a cat stain off your couch.

May just go get one of these to supplement it:
