Special features of your BISSELL ProHeat

BISSELL ProHeat deep cleaner is a home cleaning system that automatically mixes hot tap water with BISSELL advanced cleaning formulas and heats the solution as it is applied to the carpet. The combination of heated solution, rotating brushes and powerful suction provide a safe and effective method of cleaning.

Special features of your BISSELL ProHeat

SmartTemp®

SmartTemp Ready Light

The BISSELL ProHeat models all feature a patented built-inheater which will heat hot tap water you put in up to 25° degrees hotter to safely optimize cleaning effectiveness. The heater will never allow the

temperature to exceed 180°. The heater switch which is located on the back of the machine controls the heater so you have the option to turn off the heat if you are cleaning delicate or oriental rugs.

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-adjuststo 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.

SmartMix®

The SmartMix feature automatically mixes hot tap water with the BISSELL advanced cleaning formula. Simply choose one of the 3 settings (Heavy Traffic, Normal,

or Water Rinse) and the ProHeat will adjust the right amount of cleaning solution to mix with the heated water to fit your cleaning need.

Having a separate solution tank from the water tank allows no waste of formula. Because the water and solution are stored separately, they are not mixed until you are ready to clean. When your cleaning job is finished, the formula can be stored ready to use in your machine for the next time!

This feature is available on all ProHeat models.

Scotchgard™ Protector

Carpet protection applied at the mill typically wears down over time from heavy foot traffic and everyday cleaning, including deep cleaning. To help restore this important protection, only BISSELL offers deep cleaning formulas with Scotchgard protector. This offers extra protection against dirt and tough stains to keep your carpets looking good longer.

To maintain your Scotchgard 5-yearlimited stain warranty, you no longer are required to hire a professional. By using your BISSELL ProHeat machine with BISSELL formulas containing Scotchgard protector every 12 months, your carpet warranty from 3M remains in effect. No other home deep cleaning system can do this for you.

Special features of your BISSELL ProHeat

Tank-in-Tank™

Our Tank-in-Tanksystem 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 you to maximize tank space, yet only carry one tank to and from the sink for emptying and filling.

ReadyTools Dial

This provides either floor cleaning or above the floor cleaning with the flip of a switch. If choosing above floor cleaning for upholstery, stairs, or along the baseboards, choose the attachment appropriate for the job. Attach tool to the hose, and you are ready to go!

Flow Indicator

This is located on the machine base. It spins when the trigger is pressed to indicate that the machine is applying cleaning solution to the carpet and will stop spinning when the SmartMix tank or bladder needs to be refilled, or when the trigger is released.

Note: Flow Indicator does not spin when spraying through the attachment hose.

Operation

Before you clean

1.Plan activities to give your carpet time to dry.

2.Move furniture to another area if cleaning an entire room (optional).

3.Thoroughly vacuum area with a dry vacuum cleaner before deep cleaning.

4.Plan your cleaning route to leave an exit path. It is best to begin cleaning in the corner farthest from your exit.

5.Pretreating (optional)

Note: Pretreating is recommended to improve cleaning effectiveness for heavily soiled carpet in high traffic areas such as entryways and hallways.

A.Spray the BISSELL Tough Stain Pre-treatformula onto heavy traffic areas, soiled areas, or stains.

B.Allow to penetrate for at least 3 minutes.

C.Following the instructions below, clean as

normal, using the BISSELL ProHeat machine on the high traffic setting.

Power switch

1.Plug into a proper outlet and turn the power and heater switches to the ON ( I ) position. The switches are found on the back of the handle. Allow 1 minute for thebuilt-inheater towarm-upbefore cleaning. The ProHeat will be fully warmed and will provide optimal performance after a minute of continuous heated cleaning.

2.The SmartTemp ready light indicates when

the heater is ON ( I ).

Note: SmartTemp heats the cleaning solution for carpet and hard floor application only. It does not heat solution sprayed through the accessory tools.

Cleaning strokes

1.While pressing the trigger, make one slow forward wet pass and another one back. Let the built-inheater, formula, and DirtLifter PowerBrush do the work for you.Caution: Do not overwet. Take care not to run over loose objects, edges of area rugs, or the cord. Stalling brush may result in premature belt failure.

2.Release the trigger and make one slow forward and backward pass over the same area to remove any residual dirty water, and aid in drying. Repeat cleaning passes until solution being pulled up appears clean. Continue passes without pressing the trigger until you can’t see any more water being pulled up.

NOTE: Both the SmartMix tank and the clean water tank must have liquid in them in order for the machine to spray. If one tank is empty the machine will not apply cleaning solution or water.

3.After cleaning, you may want to turn the SmartMix dial to water rinse to give your carpeting a final water only rinse. This will ensure thorough removal of embedded dirt loosened by the deep cleaning formula. BISSELL deep cleaning formulas contain an anti-resoilingagent that helps your carpets repel dirt and keeps them looking good longer.

Maintenance and care

Machine storage

Once your cleaning is complete, make sure the water tank is emptied and rinsed out. Put the unit away in a closet or basement for the next use. The SmartMix tank can remain filled and ready to go (store with machine set to water rinse setting), or it can simply be emptied back into the formula bottle if that is more convenient.

Note: Store cleaner in a protected, dry area. Since this product uses water, it must not be stored where there is a danger of freezing.

Freezing will damage internal components and void the warranty.

Machine care

For best results, a few simple steps can assure your machine is well maintained after your cleaning is complete.

1.Turn power and heater switches OFF ( 0 ). Unplug the machine and wrap the power cord.

2.After emptying the water tank, rinse it out at a faucet with running hot tap water, taking care to clean underneath the heavy duty bladder, and all around it. Clean out lint trap.

3.Replace the Tank-in-Tankon the machine.

4.Clean out the flow indicator filter each time it is used to ensure best cleaning performance. Unscrew the flow indicator cap, lift out the red rotor and white filter.

Rinse all three parts with water. Replace the filter and rotor. Replace the flow indicator cap. Turn until snug, do not over-tighten.

5.Any loose hair or debris can be pulled from the brush roll if desired and thrown away.

6.Wipe the machine’s exterior with a soft cloth.

7.After carpet is dry, vacuum again to remove hair and fuzz.

Cleaning with attachments

Your ProHeat machine comes equipped with a hose and at least one attachment for cleaning stairs, upholstery, and more.

1.Important! If using to clean upholstery, check upholstery tags for instructions.

WARNING:

Maintenance and care

Cleaning with attachments (continued)

A.Check manufacturer’s tag before cleaning. “W” or “WS” on the tag means you can use your ProHeat. If the tag is coded with an “X” or an “S” (with a diagonal stripe through it), or says “Dry Clean Only”, do not proceed with any deep cleaning machine.

Do not use on Velvet or Silk. If manufacturer’s tag is missing or not coded, check with your furniture dealer or manufacturer.

B.Check for colorfastness in an inconspicuous place.

C.If possible, check upholstery stuffing. Colored stuffing may bleed through fabric when wet.

D.Plan activities to allow upholstery time to dry.

E.Vacuum thoroughly to pick up loose debris and pet hair. Use a vacuum with a brush attachment and a crevice tool to clean in fabric folds.

2.Follow the instructions on page 9 for filling the water tank and the formula tank.

3.Set ready tools dial to the tools setting. This will allow spray and divert the suction to the hose.

*SmartTemp heats the cleaning solution for carpet and hard floor application only. It does not heat solution sprayed through the accessory tools.

4.Set SmartMix dial to normal.

5.Attach the cleaning tool to the end of the hose.

6.Plug in and turn on the power switch.

7.Clean by pressing the trigger to spray solution onto the area to be cleaned. Slowly move the tool back and forth over the soiled surface.

Release the trigger to suction soiled water. Continue to clean in the area, working in small sections, until no more dirt can be removed. Rinse (optional) and suction as needed.

Caution: Do no overwet.

8.When cleaning is complete, remove and rinse tools in clean, running water.

9.Coil hose around the tool caddy.

Stain removal

Do Not Delay! Attending to an accident soon after it occurs ensures the chances for full removal. Leaving it for an extended period of time may cause it to set and become permanent.

1.Blot up liquids with an absorbent cloth or paper towels. White materials are recommended because certain dyes may bleed and make the stain worse.

2.Gently scrape up any semi-solidswith a spoon or spatula. Do not use a knife or other utensil with sharp edges because it could damage the carpet or upholstery.

3.If the area has dried, remove the remaining semi-solidsand residue with a sweeper

or vacuum.

Maintenance and care

Stain removal (Continued)

4.Be sure to test any spot removal formulas in an inconspicuous area first. This is important as some dyes and materials could be damaged or discolored by cleaning solvents. If such a change should occur, try a different solution or call a professional.

5.If cleaning on Berber carpeting, gently run your machine over a hidden area. If no fuzzing occurs, continue cleaning in soiled area.

6.Using the BISSELL Tough Stain PreCleaner, spray evenly over soiled area. Do not overwet. Wait 3-5minutes. Gently work the solution by blotting area with a clean, damp, color safe cloth.

7.Clean using either the floor cleaning or tools setting on the ReadyTools dial.

Hard floor cleaning

Your ProHeat model may have come with a hard floor attachment and Hard Floor Solutions formula. If not, these products are available for purchase by contacting the BISSELL Consumer

Services department by phone or on the website. The hard floor tool provides effective cleaning for linoleum, vinyl, and tile floors.

Caution: Do not use on unsealed hardwood floors.

1.Vacuum or sweep thoroughly to pick up any loose debris and pet hair.

2.Move any furniture, if needed.

3.Empty any carpet cleaning formula back into the BISSELL bottle if stored in the formula tank. Fill formula tank with BISSELL Hard Floor Solutions, available at many retailers, or contact BISSELL Consumer Services.
