WARNING To reduce the risk of ﬁre, electric shock, or injury. • Do not immerse product. Use only on surfaces moistened by cleaning process. • Do not use outdoors or expose to rain. • Use only Eureka brand cleaning solutions intended for this machine application. • Do not leave the portable deep cleaner when plugged in. Turn OFF the switch and unplug the electrical cord when not in use and before servicing. • Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children. • Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturerʼs recommended attachments. • Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If the portable deep cleaner is not working properly, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center immediately. • Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close a door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not run the portable deep cleaner over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces. • Connect to a properly grounded outlet only (refer to Grounding Instructions). • Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity. • Do not carry appliance while in use. • Turn off all controls before unplugging. • Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord. • Do not handle plug or portable deep cleaner with wet hands. • Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce airﬂow. • This portable deep cleaner creates suction. Keep hair, loose clothing, ﬁngers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts. • Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ﬁreplace or barbecue ashes. • Do not use without recovery tank in place. • Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. • If the machine tips over during use, shut it off immediately, set it upright, and wait for the motor to stop completely. This allows the ﬂoat to return to normal position and permits proper airﬂow through the cleaner. • Do not use to pick up gasoline, acetone, perfumes, colognes, paint thinners and other ﬂammable liquids or use in places where they may be present. • Operate and store indoors in an area above 32°F where the machine will not freeze. • Keep your work area well lighted. • Use appliance only on level surfaces. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS Grounding Instructions This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. DANGER Improper connection of an equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. Check with a qualiﬁed electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance. If it will not ﬁt the outlet, have the proper outlet installed by a qualiﬁed technician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A. A temporary adapter which looks like the adapter illustrated in Figure B may be used to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle, as shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet, Figure A, can be installed by a qualiﬁed electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.

Quick Release Cord Hook 3 BEFORE YOU BEGIN Deep Cleaning Carpet NOTE: Never use this portable deep cleaner as a standard vacuum cleaner. For best results, remove all large, solid debris from the spot with a cloth before you begin to clean. Use only genuine Eureka branded cleaning solution. Try our New and Improved Multi-Surface Cleaning Concentrate. Visit www.eureka.com for more information. Pretest for Color Fastness Before cleaning the carpet, we recommend testing the carpet for color fastness. Moisten a white towel with the cleaning solution. Test a small hidden area of the carpet in a closet or in a corner. Gently rub the cloth over the carpet. Check each color. If the towel does not pick up any color, it should be safe to use the cleaning solution on the entire area. See below for additional information. Helpful Hints for Spot-Cleaning Carpet Follow the instructions in this ownerʼs guide. Here are a few extra hints that will make spot cleaning carpet easier. • Before you begin using the portable deep cleaner remove all large, solid debris from area to be cleaned. • Do not use the portable deep cleaner for dry vacuuming as this can damage the unit. • Use consistent forward and reverse strokes over the carpet surface. • Ventilate the room while cleaning to speed drying. Do Not Use on Oriental rugs. After Cleaning • Allow carpets to dry thoroughly. Try to keep children and pets off the carpet until it is completely dry. • Use towels or white cloths to step on if you must walk on the area before it is dry. • Wipe cleaning solution from woodwork and wood furniture immediately to prevent damage to the wood or upholstery. Upholstery and Stair Cleaning Vacuum Upholstery or Stairs Vacuum upholstery and stairs with a vacuum cleanerʼs attachment tool. Use a crevice tool for hard to reach areas such as tufts and corners. IMPORTANT: Cleaning some upholstery fabrics with a wet cleaning solution may damage the fabric. Know what the fabric content is and how to clean it before using a cleaning solution on upholstery fabrics. Most manufacturers care code their fabrics with cleaning methods. Some very delicate and unusual fabrics are DRY CLEAN ONLY. If in doubt of the fabric type, call a dealer or take a cushion or arm cover to a dealer for advice. Fabric Code Ratings: • W for wet clean. • S-W for solvent-dry or wet clean. • S for solvent-dry clean only. Do not wet clean. 4 Check the stufﬁng material if possible Look inside the cushions or on the underneath side. If ﬁlling is a dark color, it may bleed through and discolor the fabric. Most stufﬁng material that is white to light yellow is colorfast and will not bleed colors through to the fabric covering. Pretest for Color Fastness Before cleaning the upholstery, we recommend testing it for color fastness. Moisten a white towel with the cleaning solution. Test a small area of the cushion back. Gently rub the cloth over the area. Check each area for color bleeding. If the towel does not pick up any color, it should be safe to use the cleaning solution on the entire area. Test clean a hidden area Be sure to test clean a hidden area several hours before starting to clean. Let the test area dry completely. Inspect for changes in color, bleeding, stretching, or shrinking. Test another area if in doubt. EXPRESS SET UP NOTE: Familiarize yourself with the parts of the portable deep cleaner by reading this ownerʼs manual before using. A. Fill Soap Cartridge B. Fill Clean Water Tank 1. Remove cleaning nozzle from storage postion. 2. Pull out the soap cartridge, remove the cap and ﬁll with Eureka All Purpose Shampoos and Concentrates only. 3. Close cap tightly and replace soap cartridge. Cartridge must be fully seated in place to function correctly. 1. Lift up and pull out clean water tank. 2. Fill tank with hot tap water (not boiling), replace cap. 3. Gently push until the clean water tank is fully seated into position. Wait 20 seconds to allow liquid to ﬁll system before use. Fill Cap Clean Water Tank Soap Cartridge Hose Cleaning Nozzle Carrying Handle and Hose Storage EXPRESS USE IMPORTANT: For best results, remove all solid material from the area before using the portable deep cleaner. WARNING : Never carry this portable deep cleaner when motor is running. Use only on level surfaces. 1. Remove cleaning nozzle from storage position. 2. Unhook hose from storage handle. 3. Connect cleaning nozzle to hose. Ensure locking tab is in place. 4. Push power switch to “ON” position Power Switch (O = OFF, I = ON) Cleaning Nozzle Carrying Handle and Hose Storage Soap/Rinse Selector Soap Cartridge Cleaning Nozzle Hose Connector Spray Trigger 5. Move the soap/rinse selector to the “Soap” setting. 6. Holding the nozzle approximately 1-inch above the surface to be cleaned, squeeze the spray trigger. Pull the nozzle backward at a moderate pace for no more than 5 seconds to avoid over soaking. 7. Release the spray trigger to stop the solution ﬂow. 8. Place the brush of the cleaning nozzle directly onto surface. Gently scrub the spot by moving the cleaning nozzle forward and backward across spot applying light pressure. As the nozzle moves over the surface, it picks up the dirty water and places it in the recovery tank. 9. Move the nozzle over the carpet/upholstery several more times without pushing the spray trigger. This removes excess water and helps the carpet/upholstery dry faster. (For best suction results, slightly tilt nozzle forward for a more direct contact between suction cover and carpet or upholstery.) 10. For clean water rinse, move the soap/rinse selector to the rinse setting, squeeze the spray trigger and repeat step 6 through 9. 11. For heavily soiled areas, repeat this procedure as needed. NOTE : During initial use, clean water may not be dispensed immediately from the hose. With unit on, depress trigger and wait approximately 4 seconds for water to travel from tank and through the hose. 5 EXPRESS CLEAN UP AND STORAGE Before storing the portable deep cleaner for long periods of time, it is a good idea to set the soap/rinse selector control to shampoo, remove the soap cartridge and squeeze the spray trigger for 10 seconds. This ﬂushes the shampoo residue from the system. Place cleaner on a surface where water can easily be cleaned up. A.

Gently push the tank all the way into unit until secure. 5. Resume cleaning or store. Empty Cap Automatic Shut-Off The automatic suction shut-off functions when the waste water recovery tank has reached capacity. This can be detected by a noticeable difference in the motor sound. Immediately turn off the unit when this happens and empty the recovery tank. NOTE: The recovery tank ﬁlls to just below the empty cap. B. Clean Suction Cover CAUTION: Turn off the power switch and unplug the electrical cord before cleaning. Suction Cover 1. Unsnap and tilt the suction cover forward. Suction cover does not come off completely. 2. Rinse suction cover with water, removing dirt and lint. 3. Replace the suction cover by tilting it back and snapping it in place. C.
