Thank you for purchasing a product. Manufactured to a high standard this
product will, if used according to these instructions and if properly maintained,
give you years of trouble free performance.
It is the responsibility of the owner and the operator to read, understand and
comply with the following:
You must check all electrical products, before use, to ensure that they are safe.
You must inspect power cables, plugs, sockets and any other connectors for
wear or damage. You must ensure that the risk of electric shock is minimised
by the installation of appropriate safety devices. A Residual Current Circuit
Breaker (RCCB) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We
also recommend that a Residual Current Device (RCD) is used. It is
particularly important to use an RCD with portable products that are plugged
into a supply which is not protected by an RCCB. If in any doubt consult a
qualified electrician.
1.1.1 The Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires that all portable electrical
appliances, if used on business premises, are tested by a qualified electrician,
using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year.
1.1.2 The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical
appliances responsible for the safe condition of those appliances and the
safety of the appliance operators. If in any doubt about electrical safety,
contact a qualified electrician.
1.1.3 Ensure that the insulation on all cables and on the appliance is safe
before connecting it to the power supply. See 1.1.1. and 1.1.2. and use a
Portable Appliance Tester.
1.1.4 Ensure that cables are always protected against short circuit and
1.1.5 Regularly inspect power supply cables and plugs for wear or damage
and check all connections to ensure that none are loose.
1.1.6 Important: Ensure that the voltage marked on the appliance matches
the power supply
to be used and that the plug is fitted with the correct fuse.
1.1.7 DO NOT pull or carry the appliance by the power cable.
1.1.8 DO NOT pull the plug from the socket by the cable.
1.1.9 DO NOT use worn or damaged cables, plugs or connectors. Immediately
have any faulty
item repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician.
1.1.10 Products which require more than 13 amps are supplied without a plug.
In this case you must contact a qualified electrician to ensure that a suitably
rated supply is available. We recommend that you discuss the installation of an
industrial round pin plug and socket with your electrician.
1.1.11 If an extension reel is used it should be fully unwound before connection.
A reel with an RCD fitted is preferred since any appliance plugged into it will be
protected. The cable core section is important and should be at least 1.5mm²,
but to be absolutely sure that the capacity of the reel is suitable for this product
and for others which may be used in the other output sockets, we recommend
the use of 2.5mm² section cable.

5. Using a paper dust bag
WARNING! Always disconnect the plug from the mains supply before
removing the tank cover.
5.1 IMPORTANT: The filter is made of high quality paper designed to filter
small particles of dust. We Recommend that this filter be used for dry
vacuuming only.
5.1.1 The bag must be completely dry when used to collect dry dust as a wet
or damp bag will clog quickly and be very difficult to clean.
5.1.2 Check the bag carefully and regularly for tears or small holes. Even a
small hole can cause dust to be exhausted. Never use a bag with holes or
tears as this may cause damage to the motor and invalidate warranty. Replace
it immediately.
5.2 Installing& Cleaning
WARNING! Ensure you read, understand and apply Section 1 'Safety
Reminder: DO NOT vacuum hazardous substances. Use of an incorrect paper
dust bag will invalidate your warranty.
5.2.1 Ensure the machine is unplugged from the power supply.
5.2.2 Fit the paper dust bag down over the basket and push it fully home.
5.2.3 Re-position the head onto the tank, and clip in place.
5.2.4 Insert the larger end of the plastic hose into the front inlet on the tank and
lock in place. Push the required attachment onto the free end of the hose.
5.2.5 Plug into the power supply. Switch the motor to vacuum only
5.2.6 When you have completed vacuuming, turn the switch to the 'Off'.
(position 'O'), and unplug from power supply.
WARNING! Ensure you read, understand and apply Section 1 ‘Safety
Instructions’. Reminder: Remove plug from power supply before opening
unit. DO NOT vacuum solvents, explosives, inflammable and/or
hazardous liquids such as petrol, oil, spirits, paint, thinners, acids etc.
Use of an incorrect filter will invalidate your warranty.
6.1 Ensure the machine is unplugged from the power supply. Make sure the
tank is clean and free from dust and dirt.
6.2a For wet vacuum cleaning the foam filter must be used. When using the
foam filter first remove any paper dust bag fitted. Ensure the foam filter is clean
and dry. Place the foam filter over the filter cage and adjust carefully.
6.3 Fit the required accessories or tubes to the suction hose.
6.4 Ensure the switch is 'Off' (position '0') before plugging into the power
6.5 Switch to the 'On'.
6.6 When you have completed vacuuming, turn the switch to the 'Off' (position
'O'), and unplug from power supply.
6.7 After use, empty the tank and dry.
WARNING! The tank is not designed for liquid storage. Always empty
liquids after use. Never store the cleaner with liquid in the tank.
6.8 To vacuum large quantities of liquid, from a sink or tank etc., do not
immerse the nozzle completely in the liquid; leave a gap at the top of the
nozzle opening to allow an air inflow. The machine is fitted with a float valve
which blocks the suction action when the tank has reached its maximum
capacity. The user will notice an increase in motor noise. When this happens,
turn off the machine, disconnect from power supply, remove the head from the
tank and empty the liquid into a suitable receptacle or drain. To continue
vacuuming, refit the head and proceed. After wet vacuuming, turn the machine
off and remove plug from power supply. Empty the tank and clean/dry the
inside and outside before storage.
7.1 SET-UP
Water, mixed with a suitable carpet shampoo solution, is pumped deep into the
fibres of the carpet via the shampoo application nozzle. The dirty liquid is then
sucked back into the waste tank along with the dirt and grime dislodged by the
cleaning solution. Water can be pumped up to 2 meters above the machine so
that stairs may also be shampooed.
WARNING! Ensure you read, understand and apply Section 1 'Safety
Reminder: DO NOT vacuum hazardous substances.
7.1.1 Ensure the machine is unplugged from the power supply.
7.1.2 Fit the foam filter.
7.1.3 Reposition the head onto the tank body and clip in place.
7.1.4 Ensure that the shampoo solution has been mixed with the
recommended proportion of water and pour it into the shampoo tank. Insert the
shampoo tank connecting tube and filter into the tank and push the cap onto
the tank filler neck to avoid any shampoo splashing out whilst working.
7.1.5 Plug the nozzle on the other end of the shampoo tank connecting tube
into the shampoo inlet hole on the rear of the motor housing.
7.1.6 Ensure that the transparent shampoo delivery tube is fitted correctly
around the suction hose and held in place with the clips provided.
7.1.7 Screw the large threaded connector on the end of the flexible suction
hose to the vacuum inlet on the front of the tank.

shampoo outlet nozzle on the front of the motor housing.
7.1.9 Slide the spraying trigger fitting into the mount at the top of the plastic
tube. Push gently and ensure it clicks into place.
Fit the large washing head to the plastic tube. Connect the shampoo delivery
tube from the head to the trigger. The black fitting is a push and twist fit.
7.1.10 The spraying nozzle at the other end of the delivery tube is a push fit
into the mounting on the underside of the head. There is a notch in the nozzle
which must fit onto a spigot in the head mounting to ensure that the nozzle
outlet is the right way round.
To clean fabrics and upholstery, clip the spray nozzle with the short tube into
the underside of the small cleaning head. Then attach the trigger directly to the
mounting on the underside of the small head. Push the assembled head onto
the air diffuser handle. Note: The metal plastic tube is not used.

or blocked. Stop the machine immediately and empty the water tank.
WARNING! Always use a low foam shampoo or use a de-foaming agent.
Prior to storage, following steps should be taken:
