Grounding instructions
This appliance must be grounded. If it should
malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides
a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock.
This appliance is equipped with a cord having
an equipment grounding conductor and grounding
plug. The plug must be inserted into an
appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
! DANGER
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service
person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet
is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance – if it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt
circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like
the plug illustrated in Figure A. A temporary
adapter which looks like the adapter illustrated in
Figure B may be used to connect this plug to a
two-pole receptacle, as shown, if a properly
grounded outlet is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until
a properly grounded outlet, Figure A, can be
installed by a qualified electrician. The green
colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from
the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box
cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be
held in place by a metal screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is
not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.

How to use floor steamer
!
ENGLISH
The Eureka steam cleaner is designed for use on hard-surface floors such as ceramic, stone, marble, vinyl,
linoleum, and sealed hardwood. Do not use on unsealed wood floors. If uncertain, test in an isolated area such
as a closet. NOTE: Heat and steam may remove the sheen on waxed floors or on some no-wax floors. Check
use and care instructions from flooring manufacturer.
• Be sure steamer is turned off and unplugged before filling water tank.
• Fill steamer with clear water only. Do not use chemicals, soap or detergent.
• Never use floor steamer without floor pad.
• Always direct steam away from yourself. Never direct steam toward people, animals or plants.
Using your steamer
1) Sweep or vacuum floor before using steamer.
2) Push up latch and remove water tank (Fig. 1).
3) Lift cap and fill tank with clean tap water. Do not
exceed maximum fill line (Fig. 2). In areas with
hard water, use distilled water for better
performance.
4) Put water tank back in place.

Fig. 6
5) Place pad on floor with Velcro loop strips facing
up. Set floor nozzle onto pad (Fig. 3).
6) Plug in. Push button once for low steam; twice
for high steam. Push third time to turn off (Fig. 4).
7) Hold down floor nozzle and pull handle back to
comfortable angle (Fig. 5).
8) To refill steamer, turn off and unplug. Allow water
tank to cool before removing.
9) To remove pad, step on pad lip and lift off
steamer (Fig. 6).
The steamer can kill dust mites and some types of
bacteria when used properly. To disinfect a specific
area, position steamer over the area for minimum
of eight seconds. This allows the floor under the
steamer to reach approximately 170°F. Use this
procedure to disinfect floors in bathrooms, pet
sleeping quarters, etc.
!
Do not leave cleaner standing on the
floor. If you notice a whitish ‘halo,’
remove it with a few drops of vinegar.
