How to adjust the Power Nozzle height:To adjust the height of your vacuum, use the toe-touch control that is located over the front wheel. The numbered settings are for carpet and floors. The dotted settings are for accessories and other cleaning needs. First, turn the unit on and press the toe-touch upper control pedal as often as necessary to lower the Power Nozzle to its lowest setting. Press the toe-touch lower control pedal one notch at a time to raise it to your preferred height. Listen for each click as it raises or lowers. One click is for deep pile carpeting. Two clicks are for long fiber carpeting. Three clicks are for pet hair removal. Four clicks and up are for hose and attachments.
How to install the hose:Make sure your unit is turned off and is unplugged, and the Power Nozzle is removed (see page 22 of the owner manual). Once removed, wipe down the motor shaft. Then place the hooks off the attachment hose over the attaching bar. Push the hose against the unit and turn the accessory lock clockwise to lock it in place. Lower the headlight hood and turn unit on for use.

How to install the Multi-Surface Shampoo System:
Use the MSSS for shampooing your carpets and cleaning your hard surface floors. First, remove the Power Nozzle, then remove the outer bag. Lift and remove the waste tray from the MSSS and set aside for now. The carpet brush roll must be used when shampooing carpet. Insert the baffle strip if necessary with the flat side facing the brush roll. Press the toe-touch control bottom pedal all of the way down to raise the front of the unit. Once that’s down, connect the hooks on the rear of the MSSS to the attaching bar. Push the MSSS up against the unit and turn the Accessory Lock clockwise to lock in place. Turn the nozzle belt lifter clockwise until green arrows line up, and lower the headlight hood.
Lastly, insert the waste tray.

Install the Tile & Grout Brush Roll:
When you are converting your machine to clean tile & grout, you first need to remove the power nozzle, or head of the machine, and the outer bag (see page 22 of the owner manual). Then, remove the Waste Tray from the MSSS. Insert the Tile & Grout Brush Roll. Once the belt is on the appropriate brush roll, insert it back into the MSSS. Push up on the belt with your finger and turn the belt lifter handle counterclockwise until the red arrows line up. Raise the unit by pressing all the way down on the toe-touch pedal. Then, connect the hooks on the back of the MSSS to the attaching bar. Push the MSSS up against the unit and turn the Accessory Lock clockwise, and turn the belt lifter clockwise until the green arrows line up. Lower the hood and put on the waste tray.

How to install the portable sprayer:
The portable sprayer can only be used in the blower mode (visit page 26 of your owner manual). Place the hooks on the back of the air guard over the attaching bar located on the front of the unit. Push the air guard against the unit and turn the accessory lock clockwise to secure in it in place. Remove the outer bag by pressing the bag release button on the top of the bag, and rotating the bottom base of the bag away from the unit to remove. Then, connect the hose to the air exhaust port. Simply line up the arrow on the end of the hose with the arrow on the port; twist the hose clockwise until it locks.
Once your unit is set up in the blower mode with the hose attached to the front of the unit, it’s time to set up your sprayer. Unscrew the jar and fill it ¾ full with non-flammable liquid. The dip tube needs to be attached to the sprayer before screwing the jar. Then, attach the sprayer to the end of the hose. Hold sprayer horizontally and turn the unit on. Squeeze the trigger to spray the solution onto a newspaper to check that it works. Turn the control on the trigger to adjust the spray pattern.
