Tip:
When plugging
the unit in, make
sure to hook the
power cord into
the Cord Clip.
This will help
guide the power
cord when you
flip from Dry to
Wet Cleaning.
When using a
Dry Gentle Clean™
Pad, you may
want to get it
slightly damp by
squeezing the
trigger to saturate
the pad. This will aid
in the flow of water
and Formula
to clean sticky
grime and spots.
Tip:
Use only specially
formulated
BISSELL Hard
Floor Solutions.
Non-BISSELL
cleaning formulas
may harm the
machine and void
the warranty.
Operation
Flipping from dry to wet cleaning
Tip:
To change from dry vacuuming, to wet cleaning
simply flip the unit around to the wet vacuum
side!
The Gentle Clean™ Brush or Pad and squeegee
will automatically be lowered to effectively clean
and dry all your hard floor surfaces.
Wet cleaning/vacuuming
To extend the life
of your filter and to
maintain maximum
dry suction, check the
filter for lint and debris
frequently.
To begin wet cleaning, simply pull the spray
trigger. Water and formula will be dispensed
through the Gentle Clean™ Brush or Pad.
Tip:
To maximize the area to be cleaned, it is
recommended that the spray trigger is
squeezed on the forward stroke and released on
the rearward stroke.
To make sure water
and formula are
flowing, squeeze the
spray trigger without
the Gentle Clean™
Brush or pad inserted.
You should see a light
stream of water and
formula dispensed
onto the floor.
This will dispense water and formula going
forward and on the pull back, the squeegee
will leave the floor essentially dry and ready to
walk on.
Caution:
Do not over wet the floor. Apply
formula by depressing the spray
trigger on the forward stroke only
and release the spray trigger on
the rearward stroke. Over wetting
the floor surface may cause
delamination of certain laminated
flooring materials.
Dirty tank is full
While wet cleaning, you will see dirty water
collected in the dirty tank. When the tank is full,
the white float in the dirty tank will rise to the
top, making a noticeable sound to let you know
it is time to empty the dirty tank.
Emptying the dirty tank
Remove the dirty tank lid. Dump the dirty water
and debris into the sink, toilet, laundry tub or
outside. Rinse the tank out with warm water and
replace it in the unit.
www.bissell.com
Tip:
While using the Flip-It in the
wet cleaning mode, make
sure to listen for the change
in the sound to alert you
when the dirty tank is full.
Tip:
If there are large pieces of
debris in the water, you may
not want to empty the tank
into your sink.
