31. This appliance is provided with double
insulation. Use only identical replacement parts.
See instructions for servicing of double-insulated
appliances.
WARNING: Your SONIC DUO

worn, unfinished or have a wax or oil finish.

some no wax floors may be damaged by the
cleaning and polishing solutions therefore it is
always recommended to test an isolated area
of the surface to be cleaned before proceeding.
You should always check the use and care
instructions from the floor manufacturer.
Always check with the carpet manufacturer or
distributer before using the Shark® Activating
Pretreater Stain & Odor Remover or the Low
Moisture -No Rinse - Carpet Shampoo. To
determine the colorfastness of any carpet

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. My area rug has a rippling effect on the edges?
A. Wool area rugs have a rippling effect on the
edges after cleaning. This will relax out after
a few days of regular wear and usage.
Q. After using the Low Moisture -No Rinse- Carpet
Shampoo, my carpet feels dry and crunchy.
A. You likely used too much of the Low Moisture
-No Rinse- Carpet Shampoo. The dry, crunchy
feeling will dissipate after a few days of
normal wear and usage. To avoid this from
happening again, we would recommend using
less. Try not to use more than 1 bottle of
diluted solution per 250 sq. ft.
11If the Reusable Bottle is empty, you can refill
it at any time as long as the Sonic Duo™ is
unplugged from the outlet.

Once finished, step on the tag of the Carpet/

Polishing Your Hard Floors:
fig. 25
NOTE: Wood & Hard Floor Polishing Pad
and the Wood & Hard Floor Polish are not
included.
1Vacuum the floor to remove all loose dirt, dust
and grit from the floor surface. For best results,
we recommend that you clean the floor using
the Shark® Wood & Hard Floor Cleaner first and
allow time to dry before polishing.
2Attach the Hard Floor Polishing Pad to the
bottom of the Sonic Duo™. This pad has a
“Orange” trim and the “Orange” tag says “Hard
Floor Polishing Pad”. (Fig. 22)
3Lightly step on the back of the scrubbing head to
release the handle.
WARNING: Never stand on the Sonic Duo™ .
4Carefully, squirt a liberal amount of the Floor
Polish onto an area of the floor to be polished
and place the polishing pad over it before you
start the unit. Make sure that the polishing pad
is saturated and then squirt the polish in 5’x5’
sections. (Fig. 23)
5Turn the On/Off button to “On (I Low)” setting.
Always squirt the floor polish from a height of
6 inches above the floor to avoid splashing the
polish over the floor. One bottle is enough to
cover 425 square feet. (Fig. 24)
8
6Use the Sonic Duo™ to spread the polish
evenly over the floor. Do not go over an applied
area too frequently. Always leave an area
looking wet. If a section begins to look dry while
polishing, add more Wood & Hard Floor Polish to
the area. Repeat until the whole area has been
polished.
7When going from section to section, do not lift
the Sonic Duo™ to move it, always slide it to
the next section. No rinsing is required.
8Allow the Wood & Hard Floor Polish to dry for at
least 1 hour in light traffic areas and a complete
24 hours for the polish to cure before returning
to heavy traffic areas.
9When finished, turn the unit off and slide and lift
the Sonic Duo™ to remove it from the area
that was just polished. Lay the Sonic Duo™
on its side and remove the Hard Floor Polishing
Pad by hand. (Fig. 25)
NOTE: Depending on the amount of traffic your
floors sustain, Shark® recommends polishing
every 2 months. Touch up high traffic areas as
needed in-between full floor polishes.

has begun to dry. Wait until the floor polish has totally dried for approximately a day before going over it
again with more polish.
• N
ever lift the Sonic Duo™ up at the end of a section of flooring that has been polished. Always slide the
unit off the floor and then remove the pad.
• W
hen polishing, you should always leave each section looking wet, never dry, before going to the next
section.
• T ry the Pretreater Carpet Stain & Odor Remover to eliminate your toughest stains. Just spray the solution
onto the stain until saturated, allow 5-10 minutes to set and then blot up the stain with a white cloth or
towel. Never scrub the stain, only blot.

Troubleshooting Guide
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE REASONS & SOLUTIONS
Sonic Duo™ is squirting
foam from the spray nozzle.
1. T he Reusable Bottle is not firmly inserted into the unit. Make sure that you hear an audible
“Click” when you insert the Reusable Bottle into the appliance.
2. There may be air in the system. Hold down the spray button for 5 to 10 seconds to flush the
system.
Sonic Duo™ doesn’t spray.
1. M
ake sure that the Reusable Bottle is inserted all the way in. You should hear an audible
“Click” when inserted.
2. Check that there is enough cleaning solution in the Reusable Bottle. If not, add more.
3. The bottle cap on the Reusable Bottle may need to be cleaned. Remove it from the Reusable
Bottle and rinse it under running water and then replace it onto the Reusable Bottle.
4. There may be air in the system. Hold down the spray button for 5 to 10 seconds until solution
comes out of the spray nozzle.
5. The colored spray nozzle at the front of the unit where the spray comes out may be clogged.
Clean the spray nozzle by removing it from the unit. To remove it, grip the small lips at the
top and bottom of the spray nozzle and turn counterclockwise. Run the spray nozzle under
warm water to clean it out. Reinsert the spray nozzle by lining up its grooves with the inside
of the nozzle hole. Turn clockwise until the lips return to the top and bottom positions.
Sonic Duo™ turns off when
the handle is lowered.
1. The Sonic Duo™ automatically turns off when the handle is lowered to low. This is a
safety mechanism to ensure that the machine will turn off if it is dropped. To keep the Sonic
Duo™ on when cleaning under low profile items, simply twist the handle to the left or right
and engage the swivel. When the handle is swivelled and lowered, the Sonic Duo™ will
remain on.
The cap of the Reusable Bottle
is stuck inside the Sonic
Duo™ after the bottle was
removed.
1. T o remove the cap, hold center valve of the cap with your fingers and gently pull it out. If it
doesn’t come out easily, use a set of long nose pliers for leverage. Be careful not to crack the
center valve when applying pressure and lifting up.
The Reusable Bottle fell out.
1. The Sonic Duo™ is not meant to be turned upside down. When upside-down, the Reusable
Bottle is at risk for falling out of its cradle. Please do not turn the Sonic Duo™ upsidedown. If it is necessary to turn the unit upside-down, remove the Reusable Bottle first.
Sonic Duo™ turns off on
its own.
This unit is equipped with an automatic protector. If for some reason your appliance
overheats, the protector will automatically turn the unit off. Should this occur, perform
the following steps to restart the appliance:
1. Move the switch to the “O” (Off) position.
2. Unplug.
3. Allow the unit to cool for around 45 minutes.
4. Plug in.
5. Turn the switch on to restart.
