Specialized Cleaning Features
Included with the purchase of your Flip-It are the
following Specialized Cleaning Accessories…
The Flip-It was designed to give the user the
ability to easily change between the Gentle
Clean™ Brushes and Pads.
WARNING:
Do not plug in your
cleaner until you have
completely assembled
it per the following
instructions and
operating procedures.
™
1. The Gentle Clean Brush is recommended for
use on Hard Floor surfaces such as tile, vinyl,
slate or surfaces that have grout or crevices
where dirt and grime collect.
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire,
use only BISSELL Hard
and Wood Floor Cleaning
Solutions in your Flip-It.
Use of cleaning formulas
that contain lemon or
pine oil may damage
this appliance and void
the warranty. Chemical
spot cleaners or solvent
based soil removers
should not be used.
These products may
react with the plastic
materials used in your
Flip-It causing cracking
or pitting.
2. The Gentle Clean™ Pad is intended for use
on more delicate surfaces such as sealed
hardwood, laminates or vinyl.
3. The Pleated Filter, located in the lid of the Dirty
Tank should be cleaned periodically.
1.

How To Use Your Flip-It Hard Floor Cleaner
Tip:
Getting Ready
1. Remove the Clean Tank from the machine.
2. Unscrew the black Cap on the bottom of the
Clean Tank and remove the Insert.
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.
3. Filling the Clean Tank:
Fill with BISSELL Formula to the Formula fill
line and fill with water to the Water line. Replace
the Insert and Cap Assembly. Place the full Tank
back into the unit.
Tip:
Inserting The Gentle Clean™ Brush or Pad
The first time you use your unit, the Gentle Clean™
Pad will be in the unit. Based on your flooring
type and personal preference, you may want to
change to the Gentle Clean™ Brush.
Cleaning Formula Section
Keep plenty of genuine BISSELL Hard and Wood
Floor Cleaning Solutions on hand so you can clean
when it fits your schedule. Always use genuine
BISSELL cleaning formulas.
WARNING:
To Reduce the Risk of Fire and Electric Shock
due to internal componet damage, use only
BISSELL cleaning formula intended for use
with the hard floor cleaner.
32 oz.
0482

0484
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.
Tip:
Use only specially
formulated
BISSELL Hard
and Wood
Floor Cleaning
Solutions.
Non-BISSELL
cleaning formulas
may harm the
machine and void
the warranty.

Dry Vacuuming
With the Dry Vacuum Side of the unit facing
forward, turn the unit on and begin cleaning.
You will see dry dirt, crumbs and debris being
collected in the Dirty Tank. You do not have to
empty the dry debris before Wet Cleaning.
Flipping from Dry to Wet Cleaning
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 begin Wet Cleaning, simply pull the Spray
Trigger. Water and Formula will be dispensed
through the Gentle Clean™ Brush or Pad.
Tip:
To extend the life of your
Filter and to maintain
maximum dry suction,
check the Filter for lint and
debris frequently.
Tip:
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
When You're Finished
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.
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.
Checking The Filter

Pleated Filter from the top of the Tank. Remove dirt and
debris from the pleats by gently tapping the Filter over
the wastebasket or outside.

water to clean.

water to clean, it is recommended to leave it out of
the unit to air dry before placing it back in the unit.

fire, electric shock or
injury unplug from outlet
