Hey everyone, I'm helping my father in law with his steam cleaner and I'm not too knowledgable on them, I Believe it's a Prochem Performer Bear with a Nissan A12, weve been working to bring it back to life and ran into a problem, I need to know about the electrical to get it started, the coil got fried last time, I was wondering if anyone could point me into the right direction of how the wires go or even a manual for this thing, I'm kinda lost, I'm going to attach photos any help is appreciated. If this doesn't make much sense I'm sorry I have no idea what I'm talking about Old prochem

you should be able to find a manual online. But if your not mechanically inclined, Id take it to a TM service shop. The Bear is an awesome machine and the Nissan is bulletproof so it may be worth saving.

From the picture it seems that your machine has seen better days.

If this is something you plan on keeping for awhile, I would recommend a top to bottom restoration. It would be well worth it.
