GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This appliance must be connected to a grounded
wiring system. If it should malfunction or break
down, grounding provides a safe path of least
resistance for electrical current, reducing the risk of
electrical shock. The cord for this appliance has an
equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. It must only be plugged into an outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with
all local codes and ordinances.
Grounded
Outlets
Grounding Pin
WARNING:
Improper
connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in a risk of electrical
shock. Check with a qualified electrician
or service person if you aren’t sure if the
outlet is properly grounded. DO NOT MODIFY
THE PLUG. If it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This appliance is designed for use on a
nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding attachment plug that looks like the plug
in the drawing above. Make certain that the
appliance is connected to an outlet having
the same configuration as the plug. No plug
adapter should be used with this appliance.

Special features
Your BISSELL deep cleaner is a home cleaning
system that uses a combination of hot tap water,
BISSELL advanced cleaning formula, brush
agitation and suction to safely clean carpets.
DirtLifter® PowerBrush
The DirtLifter PowerBrush is designed to
enhance cleaning performance. The bristle
pattern safely lifts out the deep down dirt while
gently grooming carpet fibers. The floating
suspension self-adjusts to all carpet heights.
When the power is ON ( I ) and the machine is
in the upright position, your carpet is protected
because the brushes are lifted up off the carpet.
Measuring cup
Your deep cleaner is equipped with a measuring
cup for adding the proper amount of formula to
the 2-in-1 tank. For convenience the measuring
cup is built into the lid of the 2-in-1 tank.
2-in-1 water tank
Our 2-in-1 water tank system is designed with a
heavy duty bladder inside for clean water. As you
clean, the clean water in the bladder will empty
and mix with the cleaning formula. Dirty water
pulled out of your carpets will collect around the
outside of the bladder so that clean and dirty
water are always kept separate. This allows the
user to maximize tank space, yet only carry one
tank to and from the sink for emptying and filling.
www.bissell.com
Tip: Deep cleaning carpeting
regularly can reduce dust and allergens
in your home.
Warning:
To reduce the risk of fire, use only
BISSELL advanced deep cleaning formula for full size machines in your deep
cleaner. Use of cleaning
formulas that contain lemon or pine oil
may damage this appliance and void
the warranty. Chemical spot cleaners or
solvent-based soil removers should not
be used. These products may react with
the plastic materials used in your deep
cleaner causing cracking or pitting.
