Position the brush in front of the stain you want to clean. Squeeze the trigger, then turn on the motorized brush by pressing the power switch on top of the handle. Slowly move the brush over the stain, then release the trigger when you’re done. Any excess dampness can be cleaned up by making additional passes with the brush without squeezing the trigger. Leave the machine on for 15 seconds after cleaning to allow dirty water to collect completely into the Waste Water Tank.
PET PORTABLE SPOT CLEANER WARRANTY
Rug Doctor® carpet cleaning machines have been manufactured, tested, and inspected in accordance with Rug Doctor’s high standards of quality. Rug Doctor Pet Portable Spot Cleaner machines are backed by a 1-year limited consumer warranty. Please consult your user manual to see the full terms of your warranty.
ONE-YEAR LIMITED CONSUMER WARRANTY
Rug Doctor gives you, the original purchaser, who retains proof of purchase from Rug Doctor or an authorized Rug Doctor Dealer, this limited (“warranty”) for your Pet Portable Spot Cleaner carpet cleaning machine acquired for normal household use (commercial and rental use are excluded). You are responsible for notifying Rug Doctor within thirty (30) days of original purchase if any parts or components are missing on your Pet Portable Spot Cleaner machine. You are responsible for testing and inspecting the machine’s condition within thirty (30) days of original purchase for any issues or defects. The purchase receipt showing the date, price, and item of purchase is the initial document of proof of purchase, and it determines the validity of your warranty. To ensure that your warranty is successfully processed, please retain your original purchase receipt and mail in the warranty card that was provided with your new machine. You may also complete warranty registration on our website at www.rugdoctor.com. You are responsible for registering your machine, either by mailing in your warranty card or registering through our website, within thirty (30) days of purchase.
WHAT DOES THIS WARRANTY COVER / HOW LONG DOES THE WARRANTY LAST?
Rug Doctor will, for the original purchaser, repair or replace any part that is defective in material or workmanship for your Pet Portable Spot Cleaner carpet-cleaning machine within one (1) year of purchase date.
WHAT THE WARRANTY DOES NOT COVER
The following exclusions apply for part(s) and machine(s) failures due to: 1) normal wear and tear, accident, other casualty, neglect, improper maintenance, commercial use, improper use, unauthorized setting; 2) machine alterations; 3) abuse or misuse of the machine, including use not in accordance with the “User Guide;” 4) machines that have not been assembled, used, or maintained in accordance with the operating instructions; 5) defects or damage caused by service or parts provided by non-authorized Rug Doctor dealers; 6) normal maintenance, such as the removal of clogs or cleaning brush rollers; 7) damaged caused by external sources such as liquids, hot materials, weather or proximity to heat. Rug Doctor does not warranty any individual parts for the machine for consumer purchase or commercial purchase. All individual machine parts are excluded from the warranty. This warranty does not provide for a refund of the purchase price. For best operating efficiency and cleaning, use of Rug Doctor products is recommended. Use of the machine for rental voids the warranty and is not permitted under Federal Law (see “UNAUTHORIZED USE” statement below). Rug Doctor is not liable for any consequential or incidental damages of any nature involving the purchase/use of your machine. In no event shall Rug Doctor’s liability exceed the purchase price of the machine. Some stares do not allow the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations or exclusion may not apply to you. ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, WHETHER ORAL OR WRITTEN, ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, WHICH MAY ARISE BY OPERATING OF LAW, ARE LIMITED TO ONE (1) YEAR FROM THE PROVEN DATE OF PURCHASE UNLESS APPLICABLE STATE LAW PROVIDES OTHERWISE.
If a machine is returned to a warranty center for repair within thirty (30) days of original purchase, Rug Doctor pays freight charges both to the warranty center and back to you. Thereafter, you may be directed to take the machine to a local repair center or required to ship the machine to a Rug Doctor warranty center should additional repairs be required during the warranty period. During the warranty period, but after the initial thirty (30) days, you will be responsible to pay any freight charges for shipment to the warranty center for repairs. Rug Doctor will pay the freight charges to return your machine to you. If Rug Doctor determines that a machine is unable to be repaired, Rug Doctor reserves the right to elect to replace the machine with a refurbished or used one of the same model. The original warranty period will remain in place for any replacement machine; the warranty will not start over.
