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.
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 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 120volt 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.

w w w. b i s s e l l . c o m WARNING:
Never put descaling
aromatic, alcoholic, or
detergent products into
the steam cleaner, as this
may damage it or make it
unsafe for use.
Tip:
The Steam & Sweep may be
used as both a steam mop and a
sweeper at the same time.
Tip:
During first use, it may take
several seconds for the Steam &
Sweep to begin steaming. The
water needs to flow through the
filter to the heater. This delay will
only occur during initial use or
when using a new filter.
800.237.7691
Maintenance and care
When you’re done
1. Make sure both power switches are
in the OFF (O)position. Unplug power
cord from outlet.
2. Carefully remove mop pad from
swivel head, as mop pad and lower
assembly will be hot.
3. Any water remaining in the water
tank should be emptied prior to
machine storage.
4. Mop pad can be machine washed in
warm water with mild detergent. For
best results, air dry.
5. Wrap power cord around quick
release cord wrap on side of Steam &
Sweep.
6. Wipe all surfaces of Steam & Sweep
with a soft cloth. Store upright in a
protected, dry area.
NOTE: If steam output is reduced,
the nozzle may be blocked. To
remedy, unplug the unit, remove
the swivel head from the lower
body and pour vinegar through
the center tube of the swivel
head “neck”. Clear the nozzle
by inserting a paper clip into the
brass spray tip located in the
bottom of the lower body.
CAUTION:
Upright storage of the
Steam & Sweep with a wet
mop pad may result in the
formation of white marks
on your floor. To remove
the white marks, clean area
with vinegar.
Replacing the water purification system
If you fill your Steam & Sweep cleaner
with normal tap water, it is essential to
check the filter and replace it when it
is no longer effective. Change the filter
when the bright green grains turn blue.
If the filter is not changed at the appropriate time, calcium deposits will accumulate on the heating element, causing
damage or reduced performance.
To replace the filter, pull it up and
away from the Steam & Sweep.
Using distilled or demineralized
water will maximize the
performance of your filter.
To order a replacement filter, refer
to the replacement parts section on
page 10.
w w w. b i s s e l l . c o m Tip:
Using distilled or demineralized
water will maximize the
performance of your filter.
Tip:
Be sure to use only a BISSELL
water filter in your Steam &
Sweep.
