Step 1

Press the safety cap down and turn it counterclockwise to remove it. The safety cap is behind the handle.

Step 2

Fill the filling flask with distilled water. Position the funnel over the opening on the top of the tank and pour the distilled water into the funnel. Do this until you've filled the tank.


Step 3

Twist the cap back on the machine and press it down to lock it on the machine.

Step 4

Attach an accessory to the nozzle. Use the concentrator nozzle if you are cleaning tough stains in an oven or walkway. Use the angle concentrator if you are cleaning behind something. Use the nylon bristle brush if you are cleaning a surface you'll need to also scrub. Use the window squeegee if you are cleaning windows. Use the steam pocket if you are cleaning floors. Use the steam diffuser for cleaning upholstery.


Step 5

Plug the machine in and turn it on. The red heating light will turn up. Let the machine sit until the steam ready light lights up. This should tank eight to 10 minutes.

Step 6

Position the nozzle over the area you'd like to clean. Hold the nozzle a few inches above sensitive items such as upholstery. Hold it closer for hard items such as walls or ovens.


Step 7

Press the trigger and move the steam around the area to clean it.

Step 8

Let go of the trigger and wipe down the nozzle attachment after every few minutes of cleaning to make sure you are not moving dirt around. Use several layers of cloth to wipe down the nozzle as it will be very hot.


Step 9

Turn off the steam machine once you've loosened all of the dirt.

Step 10

Wipe up the dirt and water with clean paper towels.
