  • I Wish All Things Sucked This Well!

    Jan 29, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great suction!
    Cons: Solution tank not large enough.

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: lightweight - easy to operate
    Cons: Suction unsatisfactory from the beginning.   No water pick-up after 5 or 6 uses.

    Summary: After several months of use - approximately once a week, I noticed the suction was poor.  It appeared that the machine was pulling up carpet fibers and they would roll up in balls on the floor, so I just assumed possibly those same fibers were ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Cleans great initially. Easy to use.
    Cons: There is a defect in the heater on some of these machines.

    Summary: I have had this product for about 3-4 years. When we initially bought it the cleaner worked great. It is simple to use because it is similar to using an upright vacuum and also has the hose/tool attachment for upholstery or stair cleaning. However, ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The first use went pretty well.
    Cons: small water bucket, caught on fire

    Summary: I used my Proheat Plus about 7 months ago with no problem. When I plugged it in on Saturday, Nov. 23rd, it began heating the water or so I thought. After, 2 minutes of a steady, low motor sound, a puff of smoke came from the bottom of the machine and ... read more

    Pros: Does pick up the dirt

    Pros: Easy to use. Works well. Quiet for what it is.
    Cons: Tank capacity is a tad small.

    Summary: I have a puppy. And she loves to make a mess on the carpet -- she drags food from the kitchen to the living room, she tacks in mud from the outside, she barfs, she pees... you can see how things can get very bad very fast. I have owned the ... read more

    Pros: Well-Designed, Cleans Great, Built-In Heater, "Perfect Pass" Speed Monitor
    Cons: None That I Know

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Super Suction and scrubbing, close to walls
    Cons: Weight, uses more solution than most cleaners, hose doesn't attach nicely, out of the way.

    Summary: We moved into our new home last October, only to smell the faint odor of dog urine. Nice, huh? Old owners didn't even clean the carpets before they moved. Anyway, I had been borrowing my friends Bissel Steam Cleaner, and the task of taking it back and ... read more

  • Good deep cleaner

    May 24, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good cleaning power, onboard heater, price, ease of use
    Cons: No heat through onboard tools

    Summary: My wife and I purchased the Bissel Pro Heat to keep up with our young son. We both figured that the better cleaner would be the one that kept the water warmer. I wish it would heat the water in the tank, but with that being plastic, I can see the ... read more

    Cons: Only got less than a half-dozen uses and it quit working!

    Summary: Update: I'm so mad I could just spit. I have used this less than a half dozen times. My cat knocked down a vase full of flowers. Being that I was going to clean the carpet anyway I thought I just use the Bissell and use it to do the rest of the ... read more
