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.

WARNING:
DirtLifter® PowerBrush
The powered brush roll at the floor nozzle is designed to
enhance cleaning performance. The bristle pattern lifts out
the deep down dirt while gently grooming carpet fibres.
The floating suspension self-adjusts to all carpet heights and
protects your carpet if you leave the power switch ON. When the
machine handle is in the fully upright position, CarpetSaver™
automatically raises the brush off the carpet.
Use only
BISSELL cleaning formulas in your
POWERSTEAMER® P. ROHEAT™ PLUS.
Use of cleaning formulas which
contain lemon or pine oil may
damage this appliance and void
warranty. Chemical spot cleaners or
solvent-based soil removers should
not be used. These products may
react with the plastic materials used
in your POWERSTEAMER®
PROHEAT™ PLUS, causing cracking
or pitting.
Tank-in-Tank™ is easy to use
