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

plugged into an outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances.
Grounded
Outlets

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.

Fill with BISSELL Formula to the Formula fill
line and fill with Water to the Water Line. Replace
the Valve and Cap Assembly. Place the full tank
back into the unit.

Pad will be in the unit. Based on your flooring
type and personal preference, you may want to
change to the Gentle Clean™ Brush.
