Bissell Little Green Machine manuals vary from model to model, but tips in the Series 1400 User Manual include safety tips such as warnings to never handle the unit with wet hands or aim the spray at people or pets. The manual also includes troubleshooting tips.
According to the manual, owners should never use units with frayed or damage cords, and the machine should never be exposed to rain. If the cleaner does not run, the manual suggests checking the electrical plug, household fuse or breaker. If the TurboBrush attachment has no suction, reposition the switch to the suction position. The Little Green Machine should always be connected to a properly grounded outlet.
