side of the cleaner.
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 it is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a
means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a doubleinsulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system
and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement
parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they
replace.
a.
The directions on the cleaner cartridge must be facing out.

button on the plug.
To Prepare Carpet
Polarization Instructions:
To reduce the risk of electric shock, the Oreck Steemer model is
equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to fit the plug fully
into an outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit,
contact a qualified electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not
defeat the purpose of the polarized plug in any way.
Always vacuum thoroughly with an ORECK Vacuum Cleaner before
using the Oreck Steemer. It provides excellent carpet and hard floor
cleaning on surfaces that are free of surface debris.
To achieve best results, high traffic areas and carpet stains should be
pretreated prior to cleaning using Steemer Full Release® Professional
Spot & Stain PreCleaner.
A.L.C.I
CAUTION: Before cleaning a carpet for the first time, test a small
area for color fastness.
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.
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 any wet extraction process.
NOTE: This product is not recommended for use on carpets made
from silk, velvet, wool and some cotton blends. Check the
manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations.
fig. 5 The A.L.C.I. has a Test and Reset button which should be tested
each time the unit is plugged in.
a.
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).
Operating Instructions
DANGER: Improper installation of A.L.C.I. can result in electric shock.
Do not modify or bypass the A.L.C.I. Do not replace any electrical
component in this product with anything other than an authorized
ORECK replacement part. The risk of electric shock can result if used in
the vicinity of improperly grounded stationary appliances (stove,
refrigerator, washer, etc.).
To Clean Carpets
fig. 12 Turn the Shampoo/Rinse switch to the “SHAMPOO” position.
fig. 13 Place power switch in the “ON” position.
fig. 14 Press the spray button in the handle and while lifting the handle
slightly, slowly pull the cleaner backwards. Pressing the button
releases the cleaner and water mixture. As you pull the nozzle
over the sprayed floor the nozzle extracts the solution from the
floor and stores the dirty water in the recovery tank.
To Set-Up Cleaner
The Oreck Steemer carpet and hard flooring cleaner is designed for
fast and easy set-up.
fig. 15 To move forward, slightly tilt the nozzle off the floor and roll the
cleaner forward. Repeat process working in small overlapping
rows for even cleaning until the entire room has been completed.
fig. 6 Swing the wheels away from the nozzle into the operating
position.
Remove the supply/recovery tank:
fig. 7 Pinch the tank release latch together and gently lower the latch to
the nozzle. Do Not Force Latch!
WARNING: Do not push forward! Pull the cleaner towards you to
clean. This cleaner has been specifically designed to place the
nozzle deep into the carpet.
fig. 8 Push the supply/recovery tank downward toward the nozzle and
lift out.
Push down gently on the handle to lift the nozzle out of the carpet
to move forward and reposition the cleaner.
fig. 9
IMPORTANT: Adjust the speed of the cleaning stroke to your
carpet. Heavily soiled or stained carpets will require slower strokes.
Avoid oversaturating.
Fill the supply tank:
a.
Open the tank cap.
b.
Fill the tank with hot tap water to the fill line, as noted on the side
of the tank.
To shorten the drying time, go back over the floor pulling slowly
backwards without depressing the spray button. Repeat this procedure
until you do not see water being pulled through the nozzle.
CAUTION: Do not overfill tank. Do not put any type of
shampoo/cleaner into the supply tank.
To Rinse Carpet
fig. 10 Close tank cap and place the tank back on the cleaner. Lift the
latch to slide the tank upward into position until you hear a
“click”, signaling that the tank is securely locked into place.
fig. 12 Turn the Shampoo/Rinse switch to the “RINSE” position.
Insert Cleaning Cartridge/Bottle:
fig. 14 To rinse carpet, press the spray button in the handle. Slowly pull
the cleaner backwards over already cleaned area. Pressing the
spray button releases clean water. As you pull the nozzle over
the sprayed floor, the nozzle extracts any remaining solution
from the floor and stores the extracted water in the recovery
tank.
fig. 13 Place power switch in the “ON” position.
NOTE: Steemer will not operate without a cleaner cartridge locked
into the docking bay. Use only Steemer Full Release® Professional
Carpet Cleaner cartridges, which are specifically formulated to be
residue-free. Other carpet shampoo will leave residues in the unit
that will, over a short period of time, clog the dispensing system
and void your warranty.
fig. 15 To move forward, slightly tilt the nozzle off the floor and roll the
cleaner forward. Repeat process working in small overlapping
rows for even cleaning until the entire room has been completed.

Sample Cleaning Procedures:
CAUTION: Do not allow the lower recovery tank to overfill.
Damage to the unit can result. Empty the recovery tank when full
and whenever clean water is added to the upper supply tank.
You can use the Oreck Steemer cleaner in many ways to achieve
optimal results. The following chart is a guide to usage, however, feel
free to use it in a manner which you think is most effective depending on
the surface.
fig. 7 To empty the recovery tank, simply release the tank latch by
squeezing the latch together.
fig. 8 Lift the tank out and carry it to a sink or drain. Turn the tank
upside down and pour the dirty water out.
The procedure section indicates the types of passes to use on the
flooring. For example “Shampoo-Dry-Rinse-Dry” means, one shampoo
pass, then one dry pass, one rinse pass (water only), then one dry pass.
fig. 9 Refill the supply tank with clean hot tap water. Replace cleaner
cartridge as needed.

IMPORTANT: Prior to cleaning any upholstered furniture, read the
following instructions very carefully.
fig. 8 Lift the tank out and carry it to a sink or drain. Turn the tank
upside down and pour the dirty water out.
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 particular fabric. If
necessary, bring in a cushion or arm cover to your dealer.
fig. 9 Refill the supply tank with clean hot tap water. Replace cleaner
cartridge as needed.
NOTE: Cleaner will not operate without a cleaner cartridge locked
into the docking bay.

• 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.
• 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 Store Cleaner
fig. 6 Pull the wheel assembly forward toward nozzle for compact
storage.
NOTE: Do not store the cleaner in freezing conditions. Do
not store the cleaner with water in the tank. Do not store the
cleaner with cleaner cartridge installed. Turn the squeegee
upside down for storage. Squeegee will deform if left in
position while in storage.
• To remove loose dirt, vacuum upholstery thoroughly with a 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.
Things To Do
To Clean Upholstery & Small Spill Pick-Ups:
• Keep young children and pets away from cleaned carpets until dry.
Plug cord into an electrical outlet.
• Check carpets and upholstery for color fastness.
fig. 12 Turn the Shampoo/Rinse switch to the “SHAMPOO” position.
• Clean nozzle periodically.
