Read these instructions carefully before using the appliance.
Dear Customer,
We wish to thank you for placing your trust in us and choosing a Polti product.
In choosing your Vaporetto Lecoaspira, you were thinking of the hygiene of your home and of
the health of your family, because Vaporetto Lecoaspira allows you to clean most surfaces
with the pure power that steam provides. It dissolves and collects dirt and traps dust-mites
and allergens in the water.
a
Thanks to the unique EcoActive-Filter, after vacuuming you can pour away the dirty water
without the risk of spreading dust everywhere.
The air-filtering system is completed by the air outlet filter, which retains the fine particles, so
that the output air is thoroughly cleaned.
Thanks to the complete set of accessories, you will be able to tackle your cleaning problems,
solving them effortlessly and saving time.
With Vaporetto Lecoaspira you will be able to use steam and suction together for a complete
clean, suction alone so as to collect all the dust efficiently, or steam alone for specific cleaning tasks.
We strongly recommend reading this instruction booklet carefully before using the Vaporetto
Lecoaspira.
What is EcoActive-Filter?
EcoActive-Filter is a revolutionary water filter patented by Polti. EcoActive-Filter uses the natural purifying property of water to capture the dirt, thus avoiding unpleasant contact with the
dust and its harmful dispersion into the environment. It is precisely the flow of water contained in the special filter and its bubbling that make cleaning done with Vaporetto Lecoaspira
so efficient.
This unit conforms with EC-directives 2004/108/CE (EMC) and 2006/95/CE
(low voltage).
Polti S.p.A. reserves the right to change equipment or accessory specification without prior notice.

nesium, mineral salts and other deposits which
in hard water areas can contribute to limescale
build up in the tank. To avoid these problems, it
is necessary to swill out with tapwater and
empty the generator tank after every 3 or 4
uses.In very hard water areas we recommend
the use of our KALSTOP FP 2003, a special
natural-base decalcifier which inhibits and
breaks down limescale, making it easy to remove just by swilling out the tank with a little
tapwater. This is a preventive against scale
build-up and protects the metal walls of the

Polti Service Centre.
We recommend you use original Polti products only, as products of other brands may
not be suitable for use in Polti products and
could cause damage.
Never use distilled water or scented water.
When Refilling the generator boiler, use HOT
rather than cold water, pour in gently at first and
keep your face away. Otherwise the still hot boiler walls can spit drops of very hot water or
steam spray.
Make sure the patented safety cap is fully and
correctly screwed on, otherwise you may experience steam escaping from around the cap.
Do not refill the boiler while it is still hot, allow it
to cool down for a few minutes before refilling.
Do not empy the appliance when the water in
the boiler is still hot.
Do not try to unscrew the safety cap when the
appliance is in use.
Check periodically the safety cap and its gasket, replace them with original spare parts if
necessary.
If you iron sitting down, do not place your legs
under the ironing board, the steam can cause
burns.
Iron only on heat resistant surfaces and on surfaces that allow the steam to escape e.g. mesh
ironing boards.
For iron stand replacement use only original
spare parts.
Check that the continuous steam request button
is switched off before connecting the appliance
to the mains.

ENGLISH
This appliance is equipped with a patented safety
cap,
which
prevents
opening
of
the
generator tank as long as there is any pressure remaining inside the tank. This is an important and
indispensable safety device and it is necessary to
follow certain procedures when re-filling the tank.
When you have used up all the water in the tank,
follow the following procedures:
• Press the terracotta/parquet button (2) until
both indicator lights (2A) and (4) go out.
• Press the steam request button (A5) on the
hand gun or the steam request button (X) on
the iron (W) so as to fully exhaust the steam
supply from the tank.
• Disconnect the power supply cable (13) from
the mains.
• Unscrew the safety cap (7) anti-clockwise.
• Wait for a few minutes to allow the generator
tank to cool down.
• To refill the boiler follow the instructions in the
paragraph headed PREPARING THE APPLIANCE FOR USE.
WARNING: When filling the water boiler when it is
already hot, we strongly advise you to SLOWLY
AND CAREFULLY add just a little water at a time
to avoid steam blowback from the aperture.
The parquet function is intended for cleaning
parquet and other delicate floor surfaces. This
function uses the combined action of a gentle,
intermittent jet of steam with vacuuming power at an appropriate level. When cleaning
delicate surfaces, always use it with the special cloth with velcro (E6) provided applied to
the multipurpose brush (E) (Fig. E).
• Press the main switch (1). The first level on
the vacuum indicator lights (5) will begin to
flash.
• Press the water boiler - terracotta/parquet
button (2) once only.
• The pressure indicator light (4) will flash until the water boiler has reached working
pressure, then stay on steadily.
At this
point, press the terracotta/parquet button
(2) again to turn on the parquet function; the
indicator light will come on (2A).
• While holding down the steam button (A5),
steam will be released alternately and vacuuming will begin at intermediate speed
(you cannot change vacuum speed). If you
release the button (A5), the steam supply
will be stopped, while vacuuming will continue for about 4 seconds more to dry the
surface treated.
• Press the button (2) again to stop working.
• To avoid damaging delicate surfaces, we
recommend always using the parquet
function with the universal brush (E), together with the liquid suction insert (E3)
or with the insert for fitted carpet (E4),
wrapped in a parquet cloth with velcro
(E6).
• Always be very careful when cleaning wooden surfaces (furniture, doors, etc.) and
treated terracotta floors, as prolonged use
of steam could damage the wax, polish or
colour of the surfaces.

Use of the suction controls
Simply by pressing the suction button (A4) you will
be able to start suction.
You will be able to select the speed required for
the type of surface to be treated by keeping the
suction button (A4) pressed. When you increase
the suction power, one of the indicator lamps (5)
on the control panel will light up, and when you
lower it one of the lamps (5) will extinguish.
To turn the appliance off just press the suction button (A4).
NOTE: when you switch on the suction, the appliance will restart from the speed it was at the time
of switching off.
To connect the accessories for suction only (F-MQ-R-T) just connect them without hooking with
connector button (C).
CAUTION: in this case it is important to disconnect the steam function by using the safety device
(A3) in order to prevent the steam leaking.
S U P P LY C A B L E S T O R A G E
ATTENTION: When the sucked up dirt reaches
the maximum level in the dirt container (20),
suction is automatically blocked by the safety
float (you will notice an increase in the motor
revolutions).
SUCTION OF SOLIDS AND LIQUIDS
This appliance can be used to suck up dust or liquids equally easily.
However, if the water in the filter is very dirty it
should be replaced proceeding as described in
the section “Emptying and cleaning the dirt container”.
Before putting away the Vaporetto Lecoaspira,
store the supply cable (13) in its compartment (15)
proceeding as follows:
• Take out the dirt container (20) as indicated in
the paragraph “preparation for use”.
• Manually wind the cable evenly and put it in the
storage (15), making it go through the power
supply cable canal (14) (Fig.8).
• Put the dirt container (20) back in its place making sure it is correctly positioned.
After 10 seconds the appliance will go automatically to pause and the four indicator lights will
flash.
Switch off the appliance, and only switch on again
after restoring the water level in the tank as described in the “emptying and cleaning the dirt container” paragraph.
IMMEDIATE RESTART WITHOUT RESTORING
THE WATER LEVEL CAN DAMAGE THE AIR
OUTLET FILTER.
Before resuming your cleaning operations, proceed as illustrated in the section “Emptying and
cleaning the dirt container”, and then top up the

easy to clean the dirt container in your Lecoaspira.
When you have finished cleaning, empty the dirt
container as described and put it back in its housing in the machine.
Suction up about one and a half litres of clean water, turning on the suction for a few seconds. The
whirlpool created inside the dirt container will rinse
the walls and dislodge any dirt. Clean water
cleans the inside of the tubes as it passes through
them. Now empty the dirt container again and put
the Vaporetto Lecoaspira away.
Note: a possible change in colour of the liquid
does not alter the functional character and the efficiency of the product.
Do not swallow. Keep out of the reach of children.

TIP FOR USING THE ACCESSORIES
Before treating leather, special fabrics (especially
dralon and velvet) or wooden surfaces with steam,
consult the manufacturer’s instructions and always proceed only after carrying out a test on a
hidden part or a sample. Allow the area treated
with steam to dry and then check whether any
changes in colour or deformations have occurred
before proceeding further, ensuring exactly the
same steam power and distance as in the test.
When cleaning wooden surfaces (furniture, doors,
etc.) and brick floors always proceed with caution
since excessive use of steam could damage the
wax, the polish or the colour of the surface to be
cleaned. It is therefore advisable to apply the
steam to these surfaces only for short periods at a
time or to clean them with a cloth that has been
treated with steam.
On particularly delicate surfaces (e.g. synthetic
materials, enamelled surfaces, etc.) we strongly
recommend using the steam at its lowest output
power. When cleaning glazed surfaces, if the
weather is particularly cold pre-heat the glass
working at distance of about 50 cm away from the
surface. To take care of your plants, we recommend spraying them from a distance of at least 50
cm.

ASSEMBLING INSERTS:
To attach the different fittings on the universal
brush, slide the two slides (E1) on the back of
the brush outwards and attach the fitting most
suited to the surface to be cleaned. Slide the
two slides (E1) inwards (fig. C) to lock the fitting
into place.
We suggest to use this accessory on large windows, large mirrors and smooth surfaces, or to
clean upholstery surfaces such as sofas, mattresses, etc., using the following attachments supplied with it:
• 130 mm squeegee attachment (O), for smaller
windows;
• 200 mm squeegee attachment (O1) for larger
windows and surfaces;
• bristled attachment (P) is recommended for carpeting, stairs, car interiors, and upholstered surfaces (AFTER TESTING FIRST ON A HIDDEN
PART, WAITING AND SEEING HOW IT REACTS TO STEAM TREATMENT). It is also useful for removing animal hair from the same surfaces; a sponge cover (E5) may also be
attached to the nozzle.
Insert the nozzle into the appropriate socket on
the brush and block as shown in fig. D.
To correctly use the steam-suction squeegee proceed as follows:
• apply steam uniformly to the surface to be
cleaned to dissolve the soiling.
• Press the rubber squeegee against the surface
to be cleaned, moving it vertically from top to
bottom with the suction function switched on.
Warning: in particularly cold weather, pre-heat the
windows by applying steam from a distance of
about 50 cm from the surface to be cleaned.

We suggest to use this accessory to clean areas
that are difficult to reach with the other accessories. The 120° accessory may be used for:
• treating stains on carpeting or loose carpets,
before going over them with the brush;
• cleaning stainless steel, windows, mirrors, layered coating and paintwork;
• cleaning corners such as stairs, windows
frames, door jambs, aluminium sections;
• cleaning the bases of taps;
• cleaning blinds, radiators, the interiors of cars;
• atomising house plants from a distance.
The 120° accessory can also be fitted directly onto
the handle (A2) or it can be connected to the flexible tube by means of the extension tubes (D).
It is possible to combine the 120° accessory with
the following other accessories:
• small coloured 120° brushes (L), suitable for
removing caked dirt from very small surfaces
such as cooking rings, shutters, between tiles,
sanitary fittings and so on.
The different colours mean that you can always
keep the same small brush for use on the same
type of surface.
• The steam lance (K1) allows you to reach the
most inaccessible places. Ideal for cleaning radiators, door posts, sills, shutters and toilet
bowls. To connect the lance to the 120° accessory screw it on the 120° accessory, as you
screw the coloured brushes. The coloured
brushes can be screwed on the lance itself.

• In case of accidental fall of the appliance it is
necessary to have it checked by an authorized
service center as the internal safety features
may have been affected.
• ATTENTION: if you iron sitting down, do not
place your legs under the ironing board, the

the monobloc plug (B2) periodically.
If necessary, replace them with the appropriate
spares. Also carry out the same check on the gaskets for connecting the extension tubes (D) and
the handle (A2).
To clean the outside of the appliance, just use a
damp cloth. Do not use solvents or detergents as
these might damage the plastic surface.
To clean the “ECOACTIVE-FILTER” holder and
clean or change the sponge filter, follow the instructions in the paragraph headed “EMPTYING
AND CLEANING THE dirt container”.

light and heat sources. You should wait 24
hours before reassembling the filter in the appliance.
• Replace the filter if it is torn.
• The filter should be cleaned every 4 months.
• To correctly position the Hepa filter (17) make
sure that it fits properly into its recess (19) and
then that the release lever closes over it holding
it in place (18) (Fig.14).
WARNING:
• Do not clean the filter with the brush, as this
could damage it, decreasing its filtering capacity.
• Do not use detergents, do not scrape filter, and
do not attempt to wash it in a dishwasher.
The Steam Disinfector is the sanitiser for household surfaces that can connect up to your Vaporetto Lecoaspira to deliver steam at high temperatures (up to 180°C) together with the sanitising
solution HPMed. The system allows for the elimination of the bacterial, fungous and viral load on
the surfaces and fabrics to which it is applied in
just a few seconds. This helps prevent the risk of
possible infections. When surfaces and fabrics are
sanitised using the Steam Disinfector, the risk of
contagion deriving from surface contamination is
drastically reduced.
The Steam Disinfector is a Polti exclusive and is
only available from the best electrical appliance
stores.
