SYMBOLS CAUTION STEAM IS HOT!
Warning: hot liquid or steam can burn. Danger of scalding. Steam may
also condense into boiling droplets. Steam should not be directed
towards electrical appliances. Danger of scalding appears on the cap
as this symbol.
The unit is designed for safe, fast removal of wallpaper but please be aware
that steam is produced at 100
C - so be careful, wear protective clothing and protect your
hands with heat resistant gloves or mitts.
FILLING SS75: Remove elbow filler cap and fill unit to MAX. level indicator with clean -
preferably hot - water. Ensure that the ‘O’ ring is seated correctly on the elbow filler cap and
place elbow filler cap lugs into filler hole with the tongue pointing to the TWO O’CLOCK position.
Turn the elbow filler cap clockwise to the SIX O’CLOCK position so that the tongue locks into
place between the two teeth.
FILLING OTHER STEAM WALLPAPER UNITS: Remove filler cap and fill unit to Max.level line
or indicator with clean - preferably hot - water. Replace filler cap.
Check the state of your plaster before starting work.
Steam can loosen weak, porous or poorly bonded plaster - which also loosens readily if cracked, holed or if the steam
plate is held in one position for too long after the paper is soaked.
Weak plaster can normally be detected by tapping a few areas of wall. A hollow sound indicates that you should
proceed only with extreme care - stopping immediately if you hear a cracking sound or plaster starts to break loose.
The steam stripper is safe for drywall/plaster board surfaces but whatever the material, it is always wise to check a
small area before starting work properly.
PROTECT YOUR HOME
The heat generated by the boiler unit can mark carpets, soft furnishings, table tops, cabinets etc. To prevent this we
recommend placing the unit on a wooden board, tray or other barrier - making sure it will not slip off one side or tilt
during use. Dust sheets or newspapers are not suitable heat protectors for delicate surfaces.
To achieve fastest paper removal always gently score the areas to be stripped.
With heavily embossed, vinyl coated or painted papers this is essential. Either use a proprietory
perforator tool or alternatively score the paper with the edge of a wall scraper in a criss-cross pattern
with 150mm (6 inch) spacing. As with all decorating work be sure to protect carpets and furniture with covers.
For a shorter steaming time use less water
Do not overfill the
unit or hot water will be forced up the steam hose.
Screw hose onto threaded outlets of boiler and steam plate, hand
tight is sufficient. Do not over tighten but do check for hand tight
fit from time to time during use.
Connect mains lead from unit to power socket and switch on. lt can
take up to 15 mins (approx.) before steam is produced - depending
on fill water quantity and temperature.
Do not leave unattended and keep children & pets out of the room.
