• Do not put any objects into openings or operate with openings blocked.
• Do not use without the tank cap in place.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not use an extension cord.

General Warnings
Safety
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS!
• Do not touch any hot areas on the steam cleaner. It is normal for the steam
cleaner to heat up during operation.
• Do not use the steam cleaner to treat any item of clothing while being worn on
the body.
• The force and heat of the steam may have an adverse effect on some materials.
Always test the steamer on a small concealed area to determine if it is
suitable for treatment with the steam cleaner.
• Never aim the steam cleaner at people, animals or plants (risk of scalding!)
Do not aim the steam cleaner at electrical systems or wires.
• Accessories become hot during use - allow them to cool down before handling.
• Do not use the steam cleaner directly overhead.
IMPORTANT! This steam cleaner is equipped with a steam release valve
mechanism, located at the rear of the steam generator. In the event of a
steam flow blockage, the safety valve is designed to release the steam.
Regular cleaning of the steam chamber and nozzle is therefore recommended to avoid such an occurrence. If the steam is released from the safety valve,
stop cleaning and unplug the steam cleaner from the electrical outlet. Allow
the steam cleaner to cool down thoroughly for at least one hour. After this
time, clean the steam chamber and nozzle.
If steam is still being released from the safety valve after cleaning, contact a
service center.

accessories.
Using the Steam-It™
NOTE: Carpets should be dry and vacuumed thoroughly before using
the steam cleaner.

Carpet Cleaning
When cleaning carpets and rugs, leave the steam regulator control set to
“maximum.” Always test the steamer on a small surface area to determine
if it is suitable for treatment with the steam cleaner. Use slow backward
strokes and lift the powerhead slightly during forward strokes to reduce
friction between the cloth and the carpet.
For Large Carpeted Areas
For smoother movement of the steamer over larger carpeted areas the carpet glide attachment can be used:
1. Detach and remove the steam
comb section from the carpet
glide attachment.
2. Fold the cloth and place inside the
carpet glide base.
3. Secure the powerhead inside the
carpet glide base and connect the
cloth to the attachment by using
the towel grips.

NOTE: On flat pile carpet unscrew and remove the corner gliders.

Stubborn Stains
For removing stubborn stains or
embedded grime on hard surfaces,
fold and attach the cloth leaving the
brushes underneath the powerhead
visible.
Move the brush sliders so that the
brushes appear underneath the powerhead. Move the brushes backwards
and forwards over the selected area.
NOTE: Do not use the brushes for routine carpet and hard floor cleaning
as unnecessary scrubbing may cause damage. The brushes should only be
used for removing stubborn stains and grime.
Carpet Pile Rejuvenation
To rejuvenate flattened carpet pile,
remove the cloth and connect the carpet glide base to the powerhead with
the steam comb section in place.
IMPORTANT! The housing and
accessories become hot during
operation.Allow the steam cleaner
to cool down before changing the
accessories. Never open the water
tank cap while the steam switch is on.
Hard Floor Cleaning
Reduce the steam flow to a lower setting by turning the steam control
regulator. Use both forward and backward strokes across the floor area.
NOTE: When the cloth becomes very wet, let cool, ring out the
moisture, use the reverse side or replace with a clean, dry cloth.
Attaching an Accessory
Accessories can be used on the main body of the steam cleaner by removing the powerhead and then attaching the desired accessory.
1. Press the lock button to remove the powerhead when cool.
2. Attach the desired accessory by aligning the hole in the side of the
accessory with the lock button on the main body of the steam cleaner.
Ensure the lock button clicks firmly into place.

Squeegee
For cleaning glass and mirror panels. Use the squeegee at a very low steam
flow. Achieve this by adjusting the steam regulator. A cloth can be used to
wipe the blade and remove excess water during usage when cool. For small
window panels, remove the squeegee tool and spray the steam directly onto
the surface. Use the squeegee separately to wipe away the moisture.
Spot Brush
For cleaning the grout between tiles or stubborn marks and stains on hard
surfaces. Use at medium or high steam flow.
Utility Tool
For cleaning tiled surfaces, cabinets
and countertops in kitchens and
bathrooms. Use on a low to medium steam flow. Cover the utility
tool with the elasticised cloth.
Deflector Nozzle
For cleaning sanitary ware such as toilet bowls, taps or
drain covers. Use this nozzle at maximum steam flow. Point it directly at
stains on carpets or upholstery while holding a clean cloth
near the stained area to capture any loosened dirt.

After Each Use
NOTE: When you have finished steam cleaning, ensure that both the
power switch and steam switch are turned off and that the plug is
removed from the electrical outlet.
Let the unit cool and then empty any remaining water from the tank by
unscrewing the water tank cap and turning the steam cleaner upside down
over a sink or outdoors.
Store the steam cleaner by using the hanging strap at the top of the handle
if needed.
Cleaning the Steam Generator
IMPORTANT! Only follow these instructions when the steam cleaner is completely cooled down. Also ensure that the plug is removed
from the electrical outlet.
1. Twist the steam nozzle, releasing it from its locked position. Pull
upwards; this will remove it completely from the steam chamber.
2. Insert the nozzle brush into the chamber.
3. Rotate the brush while pulling it in and out of the chamber.
4. Insert the steam nozzle back into the chamber and turn it clockwise
to lock back into position.
NOTE: Oreck recommends cleaning the chamber at least after every
12 - 15 uses to ensure optimum performance.
Unblocking the Steam Outlet
If steam flow appears reduced, the steam nozzle may be blocked. Unplug
the unit from the electrical outlet and allow it to cool.
1. Insert the nozzle pin into the center of the steam nozzle to clear any
blockage that may have formed.
Cleaning the Cloths
Both the floor and utility cloths can be machine washed (60˚C max). For
heavy soiling, soak the cloths in warm water and detergent or a mild stain
remover. Allow the cloths to dry completely before storing.
