C
This appliance must be grounded. If it
should malfunction or breakdown,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical current to reduce the
risk of electric shock. This appliance is
equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor (C) and
grounding plug (A). The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet (B)
that is properly installed and grounded
in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
DANGERImproper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in the
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
sketch (A).

instructions!
A temporary adapter (D) may be used to
connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle
(E) if a properly grounded outlet is not
available. The temporary adapter should
be used only until a properly grounded
outlet (B) can be installed by a qualified
electrician. The green colored rigid ear,
lug, or the like (F) extending from the
adapter must be connected to a permanent ground (G) 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.

Before
you begin
a. Vacuum thoroughly
° For carpet,
use a HOOVER vacuum cleaner with an
agitator for best results. Vacuum upholstery with a vacuum cleaner with cleaning tool attachments. Use a crevice tool
to reach into tufts and folds. Do not use
the 'SteamVac' deep cleaner as a dry
vacuum cleaner,
b. For upholstery, check cleaning
code = Use your HOOVER 'SteamVac'
deep cleaner only if the upholstery
fabric is marked with a "W" (for "wet"
clean) or "S/W" (for "solvent/dry" or
"wet" clean), Do not clean fabric
marked "S" ("somventldry" clean
onmy). If your upholstery does not have
a code, seek professional assistance.
c. Test for colorfastness - Wet a white
absorbent cloth with the detergent. In a
small, hidden area, gently rub the surface
with the dampened cloth. Wait ten minutes
and check for color removal or bleed with
white paper towel or cloth. If surface has
more than one color, check all colors.
After
d. When cleaning entire floor, move
furniture out of area to be cleaned
(may not be necessary if only high traffic areas are to be cleaned). For furniture too heavy to move, place aluminum
foil or wax paper under legs. This will
prevent wood finishes from staining carpet. Pin up furniture skirts and
draperies.
f. To prevent staining, use plastic or aluminum foil to protect wood or metal surfaces from possible water spray.
g. To avoid wetting and possible damage
to wood floors underneath area rugs/carpet, either move area rugs/carpet to a nonwood bare floor surface or place waterproof
material (e.g. plastic) underneath them
before cleaning.
e. Pretreat spots and heavy traffic
areas with HOOVER® PreCleaner*Test PreCleaner for colorfastness by first
spraying it on a hidden area; wait ten
minutes and blot with white paper
towels or cloth.
If no color change is visible, spray
PreCleaner onto spots and traffic areas.
Wait at least ten minutes. Use your
'SteamVac' deep cleaner to pick up
PreCleaner and spot. Repeat until spot is
removed; carefully scrub with a household
scrub brush if necessary.
See pages 10-14 for instructions on various
cleaning tasks.
*Available at additional cost.
Do not saturate carpet or upholstery with
PreCleaner.
No cleaning solution removes all stains
from all carpets. Stain removal varies with
the type of spill, time elapsed before
removal, carpet material, and carpet type.
cleaning
a. Allow carpet or upholstery to dry. To
help prevent matting and resoiling the
carpet, keep children and pets away
from surface until it is completely dry. If
it is necessary to walk on damp carpet, place towels or white cloths on the
traffic areas.
If furniture must be replaced before the
carpet is dry, place plastic or aluminum
foil under legs of furniture so metal
slides or wood finishes will not stain the
carpet.
b. Empty tanks, rinse with clear water
and let air dry. Rinse the recovery tank
lid and let air dry.
Any unused detergent may be left in
the detergent container for future use.
c. Remove lint from filter screen located
inside recovery tank.
d. Remove lint from filter screen located
on bottom of cleaner as follows.
Note: When brushes seem to be rotating slowly, disconnect deep cleaner
from electical outlet and check and
clean this screen.
Remove both tanks as described in Fig.
2-16. Tilt cleaner back so handle rests
on floor.
Squeeze filter frame, lift and pull it out.
Wipe off screen and push frame back
into place.
Return cleaner to upright position.
e. If desired, vacuum thoroughly after
carpet has completely dried. This will
help reduce any shading left by the
deep cleaner's brushes.
