10 Refilling the Boiler During Use
When water in the boiler runs out, steam will stop emitting from the Steam
Cleaner. To refill the Boiler with water, follow the steps below:
• Switch off the Steam Cleaner by depressing the Power Switch and
unplug the appliance from the power outlet.
• Carefully and slowly turn the Boiler Cap counter-clockwise. If a hissing
sound is heard, residual steam and pressure remain in the Boiler. Wait
until the last of the steam and pressure escapes and the hissing stops
before removing the Boiler Cap.
• Take care of where the Boiler Cap is placed as the underside of the
cap is very hot. Ensure there are no children present who may pick up
the hot cap and cause burns to themselves.
• Allow the Steam Cleaner to cool for at least 5 minutes before refilling
with water.
• Refill the Boiler with a maximum of 1.2 litres (2 pints) of water using the
Filler Funnel. (Note: only use the Filler Funnel supplied. Its nozzle is made
from a hear resistant material to prevent it from melting when filling a
hot boiler. Other plastic funnels can melt and become welded to the
inside of the boiler spout, voiding the product’s warranty).
• Be extremely careful when refilling with water, as the interior of the
Boiler is very hot. Water may spurt out as hot water or hot steam
causing burns.
• Do not overfill the Boiler, excess water in the Boiler will be flushed out
of the unit, resulting in wet floors or wet surfaces when cleaning. Dry
steam will only emit if the Boiler is not overfilled.
• Replace the Boiler Cap by turning it clockwise. Do not over-tighten the
Boiler Cap, finger tight is sufficient.
• Turn on the Power Switch.
• The Steam Cleaner will heat up, produce steam and the Boiler will
become pressurised.
• When the green Steam Ready Light turns on the Steam Cleaner is
ready to use. Note: the green Steam Ready Light may turn on and off
during use, this is normal and not a fault.
• If using cold water, heating time is about 6-7 minutes. Using hot water
will reduce the heating time.
WARNING: Do not open the Boiler Cap until there is no steam being
release from the Steam Gun. If the Boiler Cap is opened while
there is hot steam and pressure in the Boiler severe burns and injury
can occur. If the Boiler Cap is turned and steam/pressure start to
escape from the Steam Cleaner, unplug the Steam Cleaner from
the power outlet and let the unit cool down for at least 15 minutes
before attempting to refill or use the Steam Cleaner.
11 Turning Steam Cleaner Off
• To turn Steam Cleaner off, press the Power Switch and unplug the
electrical cord from the power outlet.
• Any remaining water can be left in the unit.
Using Your Steam Cleaner
• We recommend using distilled or demineralized water as the best way
to care for and utilize your Steam Cleaner.
• If tap water is too hard, use distilled or demineralized water to avoid the
risk of staining pale colored fabrics.
• Do not add detergents, perfumes, oils or other chemical substances.
12 Cleaning Steam Cleaner
We recommend you periodically clean the Steam Cleaner to prevent the
accumulation of calcium, mineral deposits and other sediment caused by
the use of tap water. After every 10-15 refills, fill the Boiler three-quarters full
of hot tap water, shake several times and empty out the water into a sink.
Repeat several times to ensure that the Boiler is flushed of any calcium or
mineral deposits. Wipe the Steam Cleaner with a damp cloth and dry.
Maintenance & Cleaning
Funnel provided to fill the Boiler.
If distilled or demineralised water is regularly used in the Steam Cleaner,
cleaning of the Boiler can be done less frequently. In some areas tap
water is very hard, it is recommended that the Boiler is cleaned more
frequently if hard water is used.
The cleaning of the Boiler and Steamer is the sole responsibility of the
appliance owner. Calcium, mineral deposits and other sediments left to
build up in the Steam Cleaner causing it to fail and/or the steam pathways
in the Steam Cleaner to block, is not covered by the product warranty.
Users must follow the cleaning instructions above.
If the Steam Cleaner and Boiler is not cleaned according to the
instructions above and the product fails and/or the steam pathways are
blocked, the appliance owner should send the product for servicing by
contacting the Customer Support Line.
The Steam Cleaner is intended for domestic household use only. It is not
intended for commercial use. Any use other than for domestic household
purposes will void the product warranty.
13 Replacement of Brushes, Microfibre Pads
and Accessories
The Nylon and Brass Detail Brushes and the Microfibre Pad for the Small Brush and
Floor Brush provided with the Steam Cleaner are to get you started using your
Vapour Compact Steam Cleaner. As these brushes and microfibre pads become
dirty or wear out, replacement brushes and microfibre pads can be purchased
from the retailer from which you purchased your Steam Cleaner and/or from most
other electrical appliance retail outlets.
It is normal to have replacements of the brushes and microfibre pads close at hand
when doing cleaning as the brushes wear out or the microfibre pads become dirty.
Any of the other accessory tools are replaceable by contacting the Vapour
Customer Support Line.

Tips & Reminders
14 Steam Cleaner Tips & Reminders
This steam cleaning appliance has many practical uses that have not
been mentioned in this manual. Please refer to the Cleaning Reference
Guild included with this manual for tips and suggestions of where and
how to use the Steam Cleaner. Alternatively visit the website at www. for additional information or contact our Customer
Support Line for assistance.
Steam cleaning allows the user to clean chemical-free by using the power
of steam, in place of harsh chemical-based cleaners. The heat from the
steam softens and loosens dirt on surfaces, while the steam pressure lifts
the dirt away. All that is left to do is to wipe the surface to remove the dirt
and moisture using a cotton cloth.
TIP: to get the best cleaning results use a microfibre cloth to wipe the
dirt and moisture from the surface being cleaned. Microfibre is designed
to pick up and hold dirt, a great aid in lifting and removing the dirt that
the steam cleaner has softened and loosened. Also, Microfibre requires
moisture to glide over surfaces, the steam cleaner provides moisture
that the Microfibre needs to glide. Microfibre and Steam, a great
cleaning combination!
Making Contact with Surfaces
The steam is at its hottest just as it leaves the nozzle/accessory. This is
the area of the steam output that should be used to clean to achieve
maximum performance. All accessories should make direct contact with
the surfaces being cleaned to transfer the heat from the Steam Cleaner
to the surface in order to soften and loosen dirt. If the accessory being
used does not make contact with the surface, the desired results may not
be achieved. If assistance is required contact our Customer Support Line.
Tip: steam will clean hard, sealed, non-porous surfaces in place of harsh
chemical-based cleaners and detergents. For soft furnishings such
as carpets, rugs, lounges, children’s toys etc, steam will refresh and
deodorise the fibres. Steam is not used to clean carpets, other than to
spot clean. To clean carpets proper carpet cleaning equipment should
be used.
Use ordinary tap water for all cleaning. In hard water areas, we
recommend distilled or demineralised water to reduce the formation of
calcium and other mineral deposits in the Steam Cleaner. Use distilled or
demineralised water when steaming light coloured fabrics to eliminate
the possibility of hard water stains.
Important: Do not add cleaning solutions, perfumes, oils or any other
chemicals to the water used in the Boiler.
The temperature in the stainless steel Boiler reaches about 130°C. The
steam temperature just outside the tip of the nozzle/accessory is between
105°C and 115°C. The temperature of the steam falls to 38°C at a distance
of 25cm from nozzle. This Steam Cleaner produces a drier steam which
cools very rapidly to avoid burns and injuries. Steam must make direct
contact with surfaces for it to clean effectively.
Tip: the hot steam can be used to kill dust mites in soft furnishings and
mattresses. Steam cleaning is ideal for asthma sufferers, persons with
skin sensitivities and anyone with chemical sensitivities.
