The most common complaint about this Bissell pet stain eraser 2003A is that it leaks after a few weeks of use and users tend to suspect the machine quality. However, it is not true because the machine does not leak.The reason the leak is that little round cap that holds the soap is not completely pushed in and double checked it will leak. If you push it in all the way then the machine will have no leak at all.

Answer: there is no wall mounting for this unit

Answer:  Bissell 2003A uses a Lithium Ion battery.

Question: Will this work on a mattress?
Answer: Yes i could be used for cleaning spot on mattress. To get a better result, you should pre-treat the ground-in dirt in advance with an enzyme formula or an oxidative formula. However it is not designed for cleaning the whole mattress though.

Question: Can this be used on a mattress?
Answer: Pillow top mattress is an uneven surface, may not seal enough to create suction. If you need to clean spots on mattress then it is okay however it is not designed for cleaning the whole mattress.

Question: Window tool fits what model?
Answer: the window tool will fit the 2003 (this model) but only comes standard with the 2002. It can be ordered separately from Bissell website.

Question: is this safe to use on oriental wool carpets?
Answer: As the wool carpet is delicate, you should check the wool carpet manufacturer to see their recommendation. Otherwise, we recommend you to use blotting method for cleaning wool carpet.

Answer: I have not used the pet stain eraser vacuum on my couch yet. I have used it on my carpet and it works very well.

Answer: I would think it can do both although I’ve only used it for a fresh dog accident.

Question: How is the bissell pet stain eraser better than the bissell spotlifter?
Answer: The spotlifter is a corded unit and this Bissell 2003A is a cordless unit that is the biggest difference between them. Besides, spotlifter uses a 2.0 amps motor while Bissell 2003A uses a motor of 2.5 amps therefore you might expect a bit more suction power from the 2003A unit.

Answer:  the brushes are stationary.

Question: Can the unit stay plugged in the charger between uses or will that harm the battery?
Answer: It’s a Ni Cad battery, so no you should not leave it plugged in between charges. It will shorten the life of the battery.

Question: There seems to be a lot of complaints about leaks. Is this a manufacturing defect or can something be done to avoid this problem?
Answer: I’ve really only had it dribble a bit when I haven’t let the liquid in the front section be fully sucked in to the rear holding tank. Make sure everything is properly closed back up after you clean it and you shouldn’t run in to any trouble.

Question: Will this work on hardwood floors?
Answer: This product is essentially a vacuum with a scrub brush and cleansing solution dispenser attached. So while it would certainly spray and scrub the effected area, the vaccum function wouldn’t work as well on hardwood floors. You might be better off with a steam mop on hardwood and tile.

Question: Will this work on baby spit up?
Answer: I don’t see why not! Works great for our doggie messes.

Question: Does this heat the water/ solution to clean?
Answer: Good question however no this machine does not heat the water. We recommend using hot but not boiling or microwaved water in the machine.

Answer: I’ve used it once to clean up dirty paw prints on the fabric upholstery in our truck. It worked great. Just make sure to provide yourself some extra drying time before sitting on the seats.
