• The appliance should not be used if there are visible signs of damage or leakage.
• The manufacturer declines any responsibility for damage to persons or equipment,
in the event that the equipment is damaged as a result of improper use, unauthorized repair or unauthorized maintenance work.
• Repairs should be carried out solely by personnel authorized by the manufacturer.
Equipment repaired by personnel who are not authorized to do so, represent a risk
and, as such, are not covered by the warranty.
• The power cable should only be replaced by technical support personnel who

Before Use
Affix either the Hard Surface Floor Pad or Carpet Glide with
Carpet Pad to your Floor Steamer.
WARNING: To prevent floor damage, ALWAYS attach either the
HARD SURFACE FLOOR PAD or the CARPET GLIDE ACCESSORY with
CARPET PAD when using your Floor Steamer. NEVER use without
either of these attachments affixed to the machine.
Before Use
C. Attach Hard Surface Floor or Carpet Pad to Steamer
ATTACHING HARD SURFACE FLOOR PAD
Place Floor Pad face down on the floor, with
white hook and loop strips facing up. Hold Floor
Steamer about 2” above Pad and gently place
Floor Steamer onto the Pad. Firmly press down
to assure Pad is securely adhered to the Floor
Steamer.
ATTACHING CARPET GLIDE WITH CARPET PAD
Place Carpet Glide face up on floor. Center
and place Carpet Pad on top of Carpet
Glide. Hold Floor Steamer over Carpet Glide and
gently lower the Steamer onto the Glide. Make
sure the 4 clips on Glide are around the outside
of the Steamer Base and using hands, attach the
4 clips of the Carpet Glide to the Steamer Base.
USE ON HARDWOOD FLOORS
For hardwood floors, use only on “sealed”
hardwood surfaces. Move Steamer forward and
backward while cleaning, carefully observing
the amount of steam used, as too much water
could cause damage.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT LINOLEUM FLOORING
Steam can cause wax to be stripped from, and consequently damage,
some varieties of linoleum flooring. ALWAYS test a small, inconspicuous
portion of the floor BEFORE using steam to ensure that your linoleum
floor does not have this issue.
NOTE: See “Maintenance & Cleaning” for care and cleaning instructions for
Microfiber Pads.

Before Use
D. Filling Boiler with Water
WARNINGS:
• Carefully read all instructions before removing Boiler Cap.
• Always unplug appliance before filling the Boiler.
*IMPORTANT*
Use tap water – distilled or demineralized water is recommended
if tap water is too hard. DO NOT add detergents, perfumes, oils or
other chemical substances.
Follow these instructions to avoid overfilling the
Boiler.
• Be sure appliance is unplugged, and has
cooled for at least 5 minutes before filling with
water.
• Make sure Handle Assembly is in the upright
“Off” position. Remove Boiler Cap by pressing
it down and turning it counterclockwise.
• Pour in a maximum of 0.6 l / 20 oz. water using
the provided measuring cup. Make sure that
water does not overflow. Replace Boiler Cap
by pressing it down and turning it clockwise.
If using cold water, heating time is about 3-5
minutes. If using warm water, heating time is
reduced.
*IMPORTANT*
• Do not overfill the Boiler as excess water will be flushed out of the
Boiler before dry steam will emit.
• If re-filling the Boiler while Steamer has been in use, be sure to allow
Steamer to cool for at least 5 minutes and loosen Boiler Cap slowly
to allow any excess steam to escape before completely removing
Cap. (See step 2D, “Refilling Boiler During Use” for detailed instructions.)

Before Use
Using Your Floor Steamer
A. Using the Parking Pad
You can use the Parking Pad if the Steamer is warm or hot.
CAUTION
The Parking Pad is provided to prevent
floor damage that can result from leaving
a hot steamer resting on the same spot
for too long. ALWAYS place Floor Steamer
on the Parking Pad when not in use, or
while it is cooling before storage.

B. Starting the Appliance
• Be sure Boiler is filled with water and Boiler
Cap is securely in place.
• Insert the plug into a-3 prong grounded
electrical outlet (orange Power Indicator
Light will illuminate).
• Keeping the handle in the upright “Off”
position, wait until the (green) Steam Ready
Indicator Light illuminates.
Once Boiler is filled and the green Steam
Ready Indicator Light glows, the Monster is ready to clean.
C. Using Steam
• To emit steam from the
underside of the Steamer,
simply pull the Handle
downwards.
• Return Handle to upright
position to stop steam.
You will find that your Floor
Steamer can easily clean
and refresh most hard
surfaces and floors using
the steam from the
underside alone.
NOTE: Some water may be emitted
when the handle is first pulled
down after filling. This is normal.

Using Your Floor Steamer
C. Using Steam (continued)
• To emit steam from the
Steam Nozzles, push the
trigger on the Handle.
*IMPORTANT*
The Steam Nozzles are meant
to be used in steam “bursts”
and should never be used on
a sustained basis. The Steam
Nozzles will loosen especially
difficult debris and will assist
in cleaning hard to reach
areas such as floor edges.
NOTE: Your Steamer will not need the
Boiler to be refilled for up to
20-25 minutes.
The Floor Steamer will stop producing steam when the Boiler is empty. When this happens unplug and store unit or refill with water per
instructions (1D).
NOTE: If the Floor or Carpet Pad become too wet or too dirty, replace with a
clean, dry Pad and continue cleaning.
D. Refilling Boiler During Use
WARNING: Let Steamer cool 5 minutes before opening Boiler Cap.
Use care when opening the Boiler Cap – it may still be hot and steam
may escape, causing burns. If Boiler is still hot, water may spurt out
during refilling – this can also cause burns.
• Unplug appliance.
• Press trigger on the Handle to clear steam from Steam Nozzles.
• Press down and slowly turn Boiler Cap counterclockwise. This will allow remaining steam to escape.
• Be sure Steamer has cooled 5 minutes before refilling with water.
• Fill Boiler using Measuring Cup provided. Be sure Steamer Handle
remains in the upright “Off” position. Fill only 0.6 litres. Do not overfill
the Boiler as excess water will be flushed out of the Boiler before dry
steam will emit.
• Firmly push down and screw Boiler Cap back on by turning it
clockwise.
• Insert plug into 3-prong electrical outlet.
REMINDERS
• Always use tap water.
• If tap water is too hard, use distilled or demineralized water to avoid
the risk of mineral deposits or sediment from forming.
• Do not add detergents, perfumes, oils or other chemical substances.

Using Your Floor Steamer
Cleaning and Rinsing Floor Steamer
If distilled or demineralized water is regularly used there is no
need to clean the Boiler.
Rinsing the Boiler
We recommend you periodically rinse the Floor Steamer to prevent
the accumulation of calcium and sediment caused by hard water use.
After 10 - 15 refills, fill the Boiler 3/4 full with hot tap water, shake several
times and empty out into sink or bathtub. Wipe the Steamer base with
a damp cloth and wipe dry.
NEVER HOLD THE STEAMER UNDER TAP TO FILL. Use Measuring Cup
provided to fill.
Cleaning the Boiler
If you use tap water, we recommend cleaning the Boiler every 3-4
months (depending on mineral buildup). Use a Hard Water Mineral
Cleaner/Remover (found in most hardware or small appliance stores).
• Remove Boiler Cap and empty water from Boiler into a sink.
• Follow manufacturer’s instructions on cleaner package, and fill tank
with specified amount of cleaner.
• Empty cleaner from Boiler and fill with water. Rinse thoroughly and
empty from Boiler. Repeat until water in tank comes out clear.
• Replace Boiler Cap and store appliance properly.
Maintenance & Cleaning
3
Cleaning of Boiler and Steamer is the sole responsibility of appliance owner.
Calcium, mineral deposits or sediment left to build up in the Floor Steamer
causing it to fail is not covered by the product warranty.
Before first use after cleaning the Boiler, hold Steamer so it is facing downward and direct steam into a sink or standing shower to
clear any leftover residue from Boiler. When clean drops of water
appear, wipe clean with soft cloth. Your Steamer is ready for use.
Microfiber Pad Care & Cleaning
Your Microfiber Pads are designed for hundreds of uses. Clean Pads
regularly, either by hand (using mild soap and warm water) or in your
clothes washer on a delicate cycle, cool water. Never use fabric
softener or bleach. We recommend letting Pads air dry to maintain
maximum long term effectiveness.

IMPORTANT QUESTION:
Q: Do I always need to use a Microfiber Pad when cleaning with my
Steamer?
A. YES! It is critically important to ALWAYS use your Microfiber Pads. The
Floor Steamer should NEVER be used without either a Hard Surface
Floor Pad or Carpet Glide with Carpet Pad.
