IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS STEAM CLEANER.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
•
Do not leave steam cleaner when plugged in. 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 near children, pets and plants.
•
Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended accessories.
•
Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If steam cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.
•
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.
Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
•
Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
•
Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
•
Do not handle plug or steam cleaner with wet hands or operate without shoes.
•
Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked.
•
Store your steam cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
•
Keep your work area well lighted.
•
Never turn the appliance over or on its side when using steam. Never direct steam towards people, animals,
plants, and equipment with electrical components, such as the interior of electric ovens.
•
Do not immerse the steam cleaner into water or other liquids. Always unplug the power cord from the electrical socket
when filling the steam cleaner.
•
Never put descaling, aromatic, alcoholic or detergent products into the steam cleaner, as this may damage it
or make it unsafe for use.
•
Before filling, proceed as follows: 1) turn off appliance, 2) unplug the power supply, 3) relieve pressure by
depressing steam delivery button, 4) allow steamer to cool down for three minutes, 5) relieve any built up pressure
again by depressing steam delivery button, 6) slowly unscrew safety cap (see page 6, item 5) and wait 5 seconds
before removing.
•
Metal tips on nozzles will get hot during use. Do not touch hot surfaces. Allow the attachments to cool down
before replacing them while the appliance is being used.
•
This appliance is intended for household use only.
•
Any repair work, including the replacement of the power cord must only be carried out by an Authorised Electrolux
Service Agent because a special tool is required. Call for nearest service location.

BEFORE YOU START
CHECK THE VOLTAGE
First check the voltage shown on the data plate (see rear view) to make sure that the cleaner is of the correct voltage
for your electricity supply. If it is not, do not use the cleaner but refer back to your dealer.
CONNECTING TO YOUR ELECTRICITY SUPPLY (For UK residents only)
Permanently connected to the cleaner is a mains supply (2-core) cable fitted with a non-rewirable plug incorporating a 13A
fuse.
In the event of the fuse requiring replacement the fuse cover should be removed using a small screwdriver. The old fuse
MUST be replaced by a 13A ASTA approved BS1362 fuse or a BSI approved fuse. The cover must be replaced before the
plug is used again. In the event of loss of the fuse cover, replacements can be obtained from your Electrolux retailer and
must be of the same colour as indicated by the coloured insert on the base of the plug.
If difficulty is experienced in obtaining a replacement, contact an Electrolux Service Agent or phone 08706 055055.
In no circumstances must the plug be used without a correct fuse cover fitted.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for your socket outlet, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted
Remove the fuse from the cut off plug.
The cut off plug should then be disposed of to prevent the hazard of shocks in case it should be plugged into a 13 amp socket
in another part of your home.
The wires in the mains cable of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code:
Blue: Neutral. Brown: Live.
As the colours of the wires in the mains cable of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying
the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
If using a three-pin plug, do not make any connection to the terminal marked with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured
green or green-and-yellow. This cleaner is double insulated and no earth connection is necessary.
It is in your interest to ensure that the plug is correctly attached to the mains cable. In case of doubt, have it done by a qualified
electrician, as Electrolux cannot regard the repair of faults on the plug connection as a service that can be given free of charge
under the terms of the guarantee.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The Electrolux Multi-Steamer steam cleaner is designed to thoroughly clean hard surfaces and upholstery that will withstand
high heat. Do not use on soft plastics, unsealed wood, and cold glass. Check with the manufacturer of all upholstery types
that the fabric can be steam cleaned. Particular care should be taken with velour and draylon fabrics.
WARNING: On surfaces that have been treated with wax or some no wax floors, the sheen may be removed by the
heat and steam action. Do not use on unsealed wood. This could cause the woodgrain to rise.
It is therefore recommended that a sample cleansing be carried out on an isolated area of the surface to
be cleaned. Also, check use and care instructions from the manufacturer on the object you want to
clean.
