This product is equipped with a polarized alternating
current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than
the other). This plug will fit into the power outlet only
one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to
insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the
plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact an
electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat
the purpose of the polarized plug.
Warranty
Troubleshooting Guide
ORECK MANUFACTURING COMPANY: (ORECK gives you the
following limited warranty for this product only if it was originally
purchased for use, not resale, from ORECK or an ORECK
Authorized Retail Dealer.)
WARNING: Unplug cord from
electrical outlet before servicing.
PROBLEM
Water and cleaning solution
is not dispensing onto carpet
or upholstery.
ORECK will repair or replace, free of charge, to the original
purchaser, any part which is found to be defective in material or
workmanship within one (3) years of the date of purchase. This
limited warranty applies to normal domestic use. Any commercial
use of this product will void this limited warranty.
SOLUTION
• Check that the upper supply tank is partially
filled with lukewarm water. Caution: Do not
overfill.
• Check that a cleaner cartridge is installed and
that the white lever is locked in the downward
position. Due to pressurization, the cleaner will
not properly operate without a cleaner
cartridge in place. If the cleaner cartridge is
empty, replace it with a full cartridge.
Drive belts, revolving brushes, bulbs, disposable bags, and other
parts subject to normal wear are not covered by this limited
warranty.
• Check that the spray tips are not clogged. Use a
towel or damp cloth to clean.
• For above-the-floor cleaning, check that the
hand-held nozzle and hose assembly is properly
connected to the cleaner neck. Also insure that
the button lock has been engaged.
This limited warranty does not apply to any part subjected to
accident, abuse, commercial use, alteration, misuse, damage
caused by fire or act of God, the use of voltages other than
indicated on the serial number plate of this product or service of
this product by other than ORECK or an ORECK Factory
Authorized Service Center.
Not removing certain stains.
Heavy traffic area spots.
ORECK does not authorize any person or representative to assume
or grant any other warranty obligation with the sale of this
product.
• For best results, use a stain pretreatment, such
as STEEMER Full Release™ Professional Spot &
Stain PreCleaner. These solutions loosen and
break down most common household grease,
oil, and food stains.
• Make several slow passes over the stain from
different angles.
ORECK’s limited warranty is valid only if you retain proof of
purchase from ORECK or an ORECK Authorized Retail Dealer for
this product. If you purchase this product from any other source,
your purchase is “AS IS,” which means ORECK grants you no
warranty, and that you, not ORECK, assume the entire risk of the
quality and performance of this product, including the entire cost
of any necessary servicing or repairs of any defects.
ORECK’s liability for damages to you for any costs whatsoever
arising out of this statement of limited warranty shall be limited to
the amount paid for this product at the time of original purchase,
and ORECK shall not be liable for any direct, indirect,
consequential or incidental damages arising out of the use or
inability to use this product.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental
or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion
may not apply to you.
Carpet is excessively wet after
cleaning.
Note: Under normal
conditions, a carpet may take
up to four hours or longer to
completely dry. Drying time
depends on a combination of
various factors including:
carpet type, carpet pile
thickness, temperature,
humidity, air circulation and
the number of wet passes.
• Make at least one additional pass over the wet
carpet without pressing the cleaner button.
Excessive foaming at spray tips.
• Check that the upper supply tank has water.
Dark streaks on carpet after
cleaning.
• Operate the machine more slowly; you will
achieve better results with one slow pass than
several fast strokes.
• Check that the handle trigger lock is not
engaged.
• With each pass, slowly pull the unit toward you
to extract any remaining liquid in the carpet. To
speed drying, gently push the nozzle deep into
the carpet pile.
• Check for airpath obstructions in the
stair/upholstery hose, cleaner neck and in the
nozzle. Check to insure that the inlet screen is
free of debris.
• Overlap each pass to provide maximum
cleaning without streaking.
• In high traffic or heavily soiled carpets, it is
occasionally beneficial to allow the carpet to dry
and repeat the process as needed to achieve
optimal cleaning.
ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES FOR THIS PRODUCT,
INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ARE LIMITED IN
DURATION TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD, AND NO
WARRANTIES, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WILL APPLY
AFTER THIS PERIOD.
STEEMER brush roll will
not turn.
• Check that the STEEMER power cord is
completely connected to the main unit.
• If an obstruction stalls the brush roll, the belt is
designed to burn through so as to protect the
motor. Please insure through inspection that the
brush roll is free of obstructions and is free to
turn. Secondly, make sure that the belt is in
good working order. Replace the belt if needed.
Some states do not allow limitations on the duration of implied
warranties, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also
have other rights which vary from state to state.
• If the belt and the brush roll become
excessively wet, momentary slippage can occur.
By running the unit on a dry section of carpet
for a minute or less, the belt will function
properly.

Servicing of
Double-Insulated Appliances
To Set-Up Cleaner
The ORECK STEEMER cleaner is designed for fast
and easy set-up:
A double-insulated appliance is marked with one or
more of the following: The words “Double Insulation”
or “Double Insulated” or the double-insulation symbol
( ). In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of
insulation are provided instead of grounding. No
grounding means is provided on a double-insulated
appliance, nor should a means for grounding be
added to the appliance. Servicing a double-insulated
appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of
the system and should be done only by qualified
service personnel. Replacement parts for a doubleinsulated appliance must be identical to the parts
they replace.

A.L.C.I
CAUTION: Do not overfill tank or use water that is
too hot to touch. Do not put any type of
shampoo/cleaner into the supply tank. Other carpet
shampoo will leave residues in the
cleaner
that will over a short period of time clog the
dispensing system and void your warranty. Use only
STEEMER Full Release™ Professional Carpet
Cleaner cartridges, which are specifically
formulated to be residue-free.
The ORECK STEEMER is made to double-insulated
specifications and is equipped with an A.L.C.I.
(Appliance Leakage Circuit Interrupter). The A.L.C.I.
shuts off the unit in potentially hazardous
situations. The A.L.C.I. has a Test and Reset button
which should be operated each time the unit is
plugged in. Do not remove the tag which provides
test instructions from around the cord at the A.L.C.I.
(A.L.C.I. may vary from illustration).

To Prepare Carpet
Always vacuum thoroughly before using
the ORECK STEEMER carpet cleaner. It
provides excellent carpet cleaning on
carpeted surfaces that are free of surface
debris.

CAUTION: Before cleaning a carpet for the
first time, test a small area for color fastness.
Cleaner Spray Button
Pour a small amount of STEEMER Full Release™
Professional Carpet Cleaner on a clean white cloth
and blot carpet. Examine this cloth for color removal;
if color appears on the cloth, the carpeting is not
colorfast and should not be cleaned with the ORECK
STEEMER wet extraction process.
This product is not recommended for use
on carpets made from silk, velvet, wool
and some cotton blends.

carpet, press the gray
button in the handle
(Figure 14) and slowly
pull the cleaner backwards
(Figure 11). Pressing the
button releases the cleaner
and water mixture onto
the carpet. As you pull the
nozzle over the sprayed
carpet, the nozzle extracts
the solution from the carpet
and stores the dirty water
in the recovery tank. To
move forward, slightly tilt
the nozzle off the floor
and roll the cleaner forward
(Figure 12). Repeat Step 2
working in small overlapping
rows for even cleaning
until the entire room has
been completed.

To shorten the drying time, go back over the carpet
pulling slowly backwards without depressing the
gray button (Figure 14). Repeat this procedure until
you do not see water being pulled from the carpet
through the nozzle.

depressing the red
button located on the
side of the neck
(Figure 15-A). Pull the
nozzle (Figure 15-B)
straight back and off
the neck without
twisting.
Most modern upholstery fabrics may be safely
cleaned by wet cleaning methods; yet there are
exceptions to this, as some delicate or unusual
fabrics require “dry cleaning.” If you are in doubt
about the type of fabric, we suggest that you check
with the manufacturer or dealer where the furniture
was purchased. Most fabrics are wear coded by the
manufacturer which details cleaning methods for a
particularfabric. If necessary, bring in a cushion or
arm cover to your dealer.
5. Lower cleaner onto floor stand.
8
Operating Instructions
• Cleaning upholstery which is covered with fabrics
that are not compatible with wet cleaning may
result in damage to the fabric. Know what the
fabric is and how it may be cleaned before using
the ORECK STEEMER cleaner.
5. Lock the gray cleaner button by pressing and
sliding the button forward on the main handle
(Figure 14).
20
Dispensing Trigger
• Check the stuffing material if possible. Look inside
cushions and underneath the furniture. If the filling
is colored, it may bleed through and discolor the
furniture. Most modern stuffing material is light
colored and colorfast.
• To remove loose dirt, vacuum upholstery thoroughly
with a ORECK vacuum cleaner or other vacuum
cleaner.
• If the upholstery is being cleaned for the first time,
CHECK FOR COLORFASTNESS. Test a small, area
several hours before starting to clean upholstery.
Pour a small amount of STEEMER Full Release™
Professional Upholstery Shampoo on a clean white
cloth and blot upholstery. Examine the cloth for
color removal. If color appears on cloth, the
upholstery is not colorfast and should not be
cleaned with wet extraction methods. Let test area
dry completely. Inspect for changes in color,
bleeding, stretching or shrinkage. Test another area
if in doubt. This product is not recommended
for use on silk, velvet, wool and some
cotton blends.
6. Depress the red
dispensing trigger on
the hand-held nozzle
(Figure 20) and slowly
drag the nozzle towards
you. Make a second
pass at right angles to
the first. This will
minimize any streaking
or uneven appearance.
SMALL SPILL PICK-UPS
Small spills are typical household events. When
liquid is accidentally spilled within the home, the
liquid usually spreads out quickly into a wide area in
a thin sheet.
In such cases, the ORECK STEEMER can be a fast
and easy tool to assist in most types of spill pick-ups.
Several key precautions must be followed to insure
operator safety:
1. Always test and reset the STEEMER A.L.C.I. plug.
2. Do not immerse the power nozzle of the ORECK
STEEMER.
3. Do not allow the lower recovery tank to overfill.
TO CLEAN UPHOLSTERY
4. Do not pick up corrosive, combustible, or
flammable liquids such as acids, gasoline,
alcohol, or use this product in areas where vapors
from these types of materials are present.
1. Plug cord into an electrical outlet.
