equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. It must only be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with
all local codes and ordinances.

Operation
Cleaning hard floors continued
1. When the ready light illuminates, begin cleaning
by slowly passing over surface while pressing the
steam on demand trigger to emit steam as needed.
2. To sanitize an area of your floor, (attack invisible
germs and bacteria) leave the Steam Mop
Deluxe over area for a minimum 15 seconds,
but no longer than 20 seconds. For larger areas,
overlap swivel head placement.
3. When the Steam Mop Deluxe stops emitting
steam, simply remove the water tank, refill, and
continue cleaning.
Carpet Refresher Attachment
This accessory is recommended for the
refreshing of carpets. Once the steam mop is
cradled in the carpet refresher attachment, it will
easily glide over the carpet.
NOTE: Always be sure a mop pad is in place
before placing in carpet refresher attachment.
Only white mop pads should be used with the
carpet attachment. Do not use carpet attachment on spots or stains, or glide it over the
same spot for longer than 20 seconds.
1. Attach the mop pad to the swivel mop head. As
directed in step 1 on page 4.
2. Place the swivel mop head, with mop pad
attached, in the carpet refresher attachment.
Note: that the Steam Mop rests in the carpet refresher attachment and may not stay
attached to the swivel mop head. It is meant to
glide over the carpet.
3. Fill the water tank with water. Begin refreshing
your carpet or rug by pushing the Steam Mop
in a forward and backward motion, releasing
steam as you go.
4. When you have finished refreshing your carpet
or rug, unplug the steam mop and remove from
the carpet or rug.
NOTE: Move the Steam Mop and carpet
refresher attachment in a continuous motion
until you are finished. This product is not
intended to be used as a carpet cleaner, only a
carpet refresher or deodorizer. Never attempt
to use the Steam Mop on carpet without the
carpet refresher attachment in place. DO NOT
leave the mop in a stationary position.

Warning:
Never put descaling,
aromatic, alcoholic, or
detergent products into
the steam cleaner, as
this may damage it or
make it unsafe for use.
Tip:
During first use, it may
take several seconds for
the Steam Mop Deluxe
to begin steaming. The
water needs to flow
through the filter to the
heater. This delay will only
occur during initial use or
when using a new filter.
CAUTION:
Never put descaling,
alcoholic, or detergent products into
the steam cleaner,
as this may damage
it or make it unsafe
for use.

Maintenance and care
When you're done
1. Unplug power cord from outlet.
2. Carefully remove mop pad from swivel head, as
mop pad and lower assembly will be hot.
3. Any water remaining in the water tank should
be emptied prior to machine storage.
4. Mop pad can be machine washed in hot water.
CAUTION:
Upright storage of the
Steam Mop Deluxe with a
wet mop pad may result
in the formation of white
marks on your floor. To
remove the white marks,
clean area with vinegar.
Tumble dry on low heat or air dry.
5. Wrap power cord around quick release cord
wrap on side of Steam Mop Deluxe.
6. Wipe all surfaces of Steam Mop Deluxe with a
soft cloth. Store upright in a protected, dry area.
NOTE: If steam output is reduced, the nozzle

Replacing the water purification system
If you fill your Steam Mop Deluxe cleaner with
normal tap water, it is essential to check the water
purification system and replace it when it is no
longer effective. Change the filter when the bright
green grains turn blue. If the filter is not changed at
the appropriate time, calcium deposits will
accumulate on the heating element, causing
damage or reduced performance.
Using distilled or demineralized water will maximize
the performance of your filter.
To order a replacement water purification system
refer to the replacement parts section on page 11.
www.bissell.com
Tip:
Using distilled or
demineralized water
will maximize the
performance of your filter.
Tip:
Be sure to use only
a BISSELL water filter
in your Steam Mop
Deluxe.
