Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning or servicing. • Use indoors only. Do not immerse. Use only on surfaces moistened by the cleaning process. • 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 allow it to be used as a toy. Not intended for use by children age 12 and under. Close supervision is necessary when used by or near children. To avoid injury or damage, keep children away from the product, and do not allow children to place fingers or other objects into any openings. • Use only as described in this user’s manual.

If the 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 prior to continuing use. • 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 place the product on the cord. Do not run appliance over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces. • Do not unplug by pulling on the cord. To unplug, 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 airflow. • Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of the 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 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. • 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.

CAUTION: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF DAMAGE:
Avoid picking up hard, sharp objects with this product, as they may cause damage. • Store appropriately indoors in a dry place. Do not expose the machine to freezing temperatures. • Do not use sharp objects to clean out the hose as they can cause damage. • To assist in reducing drying time, be certain the area is well ventilated when using detergents and other cleaners with this machine. • To help prevent matting and resoiling, avoid contact
with carpets until they are dry. Keep children and pets away from carpets until they are completely dry. • Do not store extractors with a solution in tanks. • With brushes on, do not allow cleaner to sit in one location for an extended period of time, as damage to floor can result. • DO NOT USE THIS EXTRACTOR ON HARD FLOORS. USING THIS PRODUCT ON HARD FLOORS MAY SCRATCH OR DAMAGE YOUR FLOOR. • 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 hazards, after use (a) do not leave the product on wood and laminate surfaces and remove to a hard surface and (b) place unit on absorbent material (such as a towel) to soak up drips.
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, 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 equipment-grounding 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.
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.
