I have had my Bissell Aromapro dirtlifter for a number of years. This is my third one as the first when switched on the first time blew all my trip switches so went back to the shop. I was then given a new replacement which worked ok for a while (then leaked water everywhere)so again it was returned to Argos who told me I would get a letter of explaination as to why both machines were so faulty, and would I be prepared to try again with yet another machine. As I had just got a new puppy I really needed a shampooer to save my carpets from accidents, so I agreed with major reservations but reassured that I would be hearing from Bissell. Im still waiting five years on. The third machine worked great for about ten uses, but has had many problems and worked very intermittenly. It starts shampooing ok, sucks water ok, then it starts to play up. It wont spray properly, or the shampoo isnt released. Ive cleaned it carefully after each use so there was no reason for the spasmodic action of the machine. I have been very very patient with this shampooere because I really cannot afford to buy another one whatever the manufacturers name as I am a pensioner on resricted funds. Save your money and avoid Bissell I believe they are poorly made and possibly dangerous, mines banished into the garage never to be used again, and I hire a Rug Doctor now.
