  • To Reduce the Risk of Fire and Electric Shock due to internal component damage, use only Hoover Cleaning Fluids intended for use with this appliance. See the Cleaning Fluid Section of this manual.
  • Do not use product with damaged cord or plug. If product is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, call customer service at 1 (800) 944-9200.
  • 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. Do not run appliance over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
  • Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug charger, grasp the plug, not the cord.
  • Do not handle plug or appliance with wet hands.
  • Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow.
  • Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
  • Turn off all controls before unplugging.
  • Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. To avoid personal injury or damage, and to prevent the products from falling, always place product at bottom of stairs or on floor. Do not place product on stairs or furniture.
  • Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids, such as gasoline, or fine wood sandings, or use in areas where they may be present.
  • Connect to a properly grounded outlet only. See Grounding Instructions.


To reduce the risk of damage:

  • Avoid picking up hard, sharp objects with this product, as they may cause damage.
  • Do not use sharp objects to clean out hose as they can cause damage.
  • Store appropriately indoors in a dry place. Do not expose machine to freezing temperatures.
  • Do not allow power nozzle with brush roll running to sit in one location for an extended period of time, as damage to floor can result.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor (C) and grounding plug (A). The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet (B) that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS Step 1


Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in the risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance - if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug (A) illustrated in Fig. 1. A temporary adapter (D) may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle (E) if a properly grounded outlet is not available (Fig. 2). The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (B) can be installed by a qualified electrician (Fig. 1). The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like (F) extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground (G) such as a properly grounded outlet box cover (Fig. 2). Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.

Before You Begin Cleaning

  1. Vacuum carpet and upholstery thoroughly with a Hoover vacuum before use. Don't use the carpet cleaner as a traditonal vacuum cleaner.
  2. Use your Hoover carpet cleaner only if upholstery fabric is marked with a "W" (for "wet" clean) or "S/W" (for "solvent/dry" or "wet" clean). Don't clean fabric marked "S" ("solvent/ dry" clean only).
  3. Test for colorfastness in a small, hidden area. Gently rub surface with a dampened white cloth. Wait ten minutes and check for color removal or bleed with a white paper towel.

Pretreating

For best results, pretreat stains with a Hoover spot treatment (see Hoover Cleaning Solution Guide) to help loosen and remove even the most stubborn stains.

NOTE: To avoid damage to wood floors underneath area rugs or carpet, place waterproof material (ex: plastic) underneath them before cleaning.

NOTE: To prevent staining, use plastic or aluminum foil to protect wood or metal surfaces from possible water spray.

Cleaning Fluid

See the HOOVER SOLUTIONS GUIDE insert or visit Hoover.com/cleaning-solutions.


Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. To avoid personal injury or damage, and to prevent the cleaner from falling, always place cleaner at bottom of stairs or on floor. Do not place cleaner on stairs or furniture, as it may result in injury or damage. When using tools, always ensure handle is in upright position.

For Best Performance

  • For full suction, it is important that the Dirty Water Tank is properly secured before cleaning.
  • Continue using dry strokes until little water is visible passing through the nozzle.
  • Hoover recommends rinsing carpet with water only. This removes residual carpet cleaning solution. Fill Solution Tank with water and repeat. For heavily soiled areas, repeat. Avoid saturating carpet.

*follow these steps for best results


Do not clean over floor electrical outlets. Water will drip from the brushes and underside of the product after use and may puddle. To avoid damage to wood and laminate flooring and to avoid potential slip hazard, after use (a) do not leave the product on wood and laminate surfaces and move to a hard surface and (b) place unit on an absorbent material (such as a towel) to soak up drips.

NOTE: Empty Dirty Water Tank when the motor sound becomes higher pitched and there is a loss in suction (see "Automatic shut-off"). You will also see the float rise and shut off suction at the same time.
