GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be connected to a grounded
wiring system. If it should malfunction or break
down, grounding provides a safe path of least
resistance for electrical current, reducing the risk of
electrical shock. The cord for this appliance has an
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.
Grounded
Outlets
Grounding Pin
WARNING:
Improper
connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electrical
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or
service person if you aren't sure if the outlet
is properly grounded. DO NOT MODIFY THE
PLUG. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper
outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This
appliance is designed for use on a nominal
120-volt circuit, and has a grounding
attachment plug that looks like the plug in
the drawing above. Make certain that the
appliance is connected to an outlet having
the same configuration as the plug. No plug
adapter should be used with this appliance..
This model is for household use only.

Operation
Steam cleaning all living areas
Stubborn soil that resists traditional hot water,
cleaning solutions and vigorous scrubbing
can often be effectively removed with high
temperature steam. Baked-on grease on the
stovetop, dried fruit juice in the refrigerator,
stubborn soap scum on sliding shower doors,
gum on countertops — steam makes all these
far easier to clean. Use your Steam Shot to
soften and remove stubborn dirt, grime, dry,
hardened food, and other household soil from
hard surfaces. You can also use your steam
cleaner to clean pet cages.*
*Note: Always remove pets before cleaning.
1.
Fill with cool tap water or
distilled/demineralized water.
2.
Connect the plug to an appropriate outlet.
3.
When red indicator light turns off, the
steamer is ready to use. Press trigger to
release stream.
4.
Wipe surface with a clean, dry cloth.

skin away from steam.
Failure to do so may result
in personal injury.
CAUTION:
Thermal shock can shatter
glass. Before cleaning cold
glass surface, carefully
warm the surface by
directing the steam jet on
the glass from a distance
of no less than 4 - 6”.
