    of modern, quick and efficient cleaning.
    You have now got a cleaning device, which in many ways will facilitate your future
    cleaning tasks and make them more efficient. 140°C hot steam is an efficient solution,

    an appetizer. Therefore you should read the instruction manual carefully through
    before you start cleaning and you will soon discover that places which were hard to
    clean, can now be cleaned in a twinkling. Many possibilities of quick and efficient
    cleaning are lying ahead.

    3.0 Cleaning with the steam cleaner


    A steam cleaner is an efficient appliance for domestic cleaning. The diagram below is a list of inspiration
    showing for which cleaning tasks in normal everyday
    life the steam cleaner will be of practical use. As
    cleaning tasks vary from home to home, the list
    should not be considered adequate, but examples of
    how to get started with steam cleaning.

    NOTE ! When starting a new cleaning job, you
    should try on a hidden spot as in some cases the
    steam may discolour and cause minor damage to
    the surfaces to be cleaned. Soft surfaces can be
    cleaned with the steam cleaner by holding the
    brush at a suitable distance from the sensitive
    surface (approx. 5-10 cm).

    One of the advantages of a steam cleaner is that no
    chemicals are used as the 140°C hot steam looses
    filth and dirt. It is collected in a cloth mounted on the
    brush or removed afterwards by means of a cloth.
    An important advantage is that steam is disinfecting.

    The steam volume is infinitely variable by means of
    the steam button at top of the machine (3). Always
    use as little steam as possible to save energy.
    When cleaning soft objects always use as little
    steam as possible.

    4.0 Maintenance
    l Always remove the plug from the socket before
    any maintenance of the steam cleaner.
    l The electrical components of the cleaner must
    only be checked by an authorised service shop.
    l Check the electric cable for damages or aging at
    regular intervals. If the condition of the machine
    is not all right, it must not be used.
    l Never empty the machine as long as the water in
    the boiler is still hot.

    Cleaning of the machine
    Clean the machine with a damp cloth.

    Cleaning of boiler
    WARNING! Always clean the machine when it is
    cold and NOT connected to the power supply.
    The boiler should be descaled each 4-6 weeks
    dependent on the water and how often the steam
    cleaner is used.

    STC 2000
    The boiler is most easily cleaned by filling it with
    approximately ½ litre of water, screwing the water
    filling cap on and shaking it. Thus the scale deposits
    at the bottom come loose. Then pour out the water
    and scale deposits and any dirt will be rinsed out.
    l Empty the tank by unscrewing the drain plug and
    letting the water off. (The drain plug is a
    threaded rubber plug on the underside of the
    steam cleaner). Do not forget to screw the drain
    plug on again. If much scale comes out during
    the emptying, repeat the procedure.
    STC 3000
    The boiler is most easily cleaned by filling it with
    approx. ¼ litre of water and approx. ¼ litre of 32%
    acetic acid, screwing the water filling cap on and
    shaking it. Leave the machine for 10 minutes and
    then empty the tank by unscrewing the drain plug
    and letting the water off. (The drain plug is a
    threaded rubber plug on the underside of the steam
    cleaner). Do not forget to screw the drain plug on
    again. If much scale comes out during the emptying,
    repeat the procedure. Afterwards the boiler should
    be carefully flushed with clean water.

    Washing of cloths
    l The cloths can be washed in a washing machine
    at 60°C and dried in a tumbler. Avoid the use of
    a softener which may reduce the absorbency of
    the cloth.
    NOTE! When empty and lead over a bump - i.e. a
    threshold - the STC 3000 may make a chinking
    sound. It is not a fault and has no functional
    importance. The reason is that the built-in pressure
    switch may vibrate a little and thus touch parts of
    the boiler.
