INSTRUCTIONS.
THIS MODEL IS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
Commercial use of this unit voids the
manufacturer’s warranty.
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.

WARNING:
To reduce the risk of fire, use only

How To Assemble

Lower Body and the Handle Assembly. To assemble:
1. Slide the Handle Assembly (with attached Quick Release
Cord Wrap™) down into the Lower Body until it will go
no further.

2. Secure the handle by placing one (1) Phillips head
screw

DirtLifter PowerBrush
The Powered Brush roll at the Floor Nozzle is designed to
enhance cleaning performance. The bristle pattern lifts out the
deep down dirt while gently grooming carpet fibers. The floating
suspension self-adjusts to all carpet heights and protects your
carpet if you leave the Power switch ON. When the machine
handle is in the full upright position, CarpetSaver™
automatically raises the brush off the carpet.
Measuring Cup
Your PowerLifter is equipped with a Measuring Cup for
adding the proper amount of cleaning formula to the
Tank-in-Tank. Before using the machine, simply fill the
Measuring Cup to the fill line with BISSELL Fiber Cleansing
Formula. Pour the formula into the Tank-in-Tank as shown on
page 6. For convenience, the Measuring Cup stores on the
back of the unit.
