MACHINE OVERVIEW
1. SYSTEM FEATURES
HEAT:The FiberPro 15H and 15HP models have a built-in heater. One switch activates either high heat or low heat. A green, separate circuit indicator light located on the switch plate will illuminate when the two power cords are plugged into outlets on different circuits. This aids the operator in finding separate circuits, which may avoid tripped breakers.
VACUUM: The vacuum motor provides an excellent ratio of water lift to air movement. Carpets should dry quickly if not over-wetted while cleaning.
SOLUTION PUMP: The pump is a ‘demand’ style system. It only runs when there is a demand for spray. This feature increases the life of the pump.
2. CHEMICALS:
The use of clear water in the machine is recommended, with the application of properly diluted cleaner as a pre-spray on
the area to be cleaned. However, you may mix water and cleaning chemicals in a bucket, according to the directions on the
chemical label, and then pour into the solution tank. If you choose to use chemicals in the machine, always use a cleaner with
a pH as close to neutral as possible to avoid premature wear of the pump, seals, and other components. Damage caused by
the use of strong chemicals is not covered under warranty. The use of powder chemicals is discouraged unless they are mixed
very thoroughly and rinsed out completely at the end of the job. Powder cleaners could cause a build-up in the pump, lines,
heater, and quick disconnects. Any problem caused by chemical build-up is not covered by warranty.
If foaming occurs as you clean, use a defoaming agent in the recovery tank only. This will prevent foam overflow which can
cause water damage to machine components.
3. TOOLS & ACCESSORIES:
Use only manufacturer’s recommended tools and accessories. If the spray valve on your cleaning tool begins to leak or if the
spray tips get worn and are no longer providing a nice even spray pattern, order replacements from your distributor.
4. CARE & MAINTENANCE
For continual peak operation, clean the internal plumbing by rinsing with clear water at the end of each job. About once a
month, rinse the machine with a commercial flushing compound to break up an mineral or chemical accumulation that may
have formed from the use of hard water or chemicals.
The vacuum motor and the pump do not require any scheduled maintenance. However, the vacuum motor may require
replacement brushes after 750 – 1000 hours of use.
To help maintain a professional image, clean the exterior of the machine with an all-purpose detergent such as Betco Green
Earth Peroxide Cleaner. The exterior can further be protected with Betco Brite MSP polish. Lubricate the wheels, casters, and
quick disconnects with an all-purpose silicone spray.

MACHINE OPERATION
1. INSPECT THE MACHINE
Before each use inspect the machine, hoses, and cleanliness and completeness.
Ensure the spray nozzles on the cleaning tool are tight and that the float ball in
the recovery tank is clean and operational.
2. SECURE RECOVERY TANK
Close the clear, screw-on lid to the recovery tank and make sure the drain hose
caps is also screwed on tightly.
3. FILL SOLUTION TANK
Fill the solution tank with clean water. The heater on the H series is designed
to provide nearly instant hot water for cleaning. If you use warm water in the
solution tank it will increase the heaters efficiency.
Never use water above 120° F (49° C) in the solution tank.
4. SAFELY PLUG IN MACHINE
Turn off all the switches. Plug the power cords into properly grounded outlets. If
the machine is equipped with two cords, do not connect both cords to the same
outlet. NOTE: This machine is equipped with a seperate circuit locator light. This
feature will inform the operator when the cords are plugged into seperate cicuits,
thereby helping to prevent tripped circuit breakers. If the green light does not
illuminate when both cords are plugged in, it means the cords are on the same
circuit. Try other outlets with one of the cords until you get the indicator light to
come on.
5. CONNECT HOSES
Connect the solution hose and the vacuum hose to the machine and to the
cleaning tool. Turn on the pump switch and depress the trigger on the tool for a
few seconds to fill the heater and lines with water.

MACHINE OPERATION
6. TURN ON HEAT SWITCH
If the machine has a heater, turn on the pump switch and depress the triggger
on the tool for a few seconds to fill the heater and lines with water. Then, turn on
the heat switch to either high heat (II) or low heat (I). Wait two minutes for the
heater to reach operating temperature.
7. PRE-SPRAY AREA
Pre-spray the area to be cleaned with the appropriate Betco® carpet cleaning
detergent. If you choose to add a detergent to the solution tank, be sure to mix
well and always follow the use and dilution instructions on the chemical label.
Use a Betco carpet cleaning detergent with a pH between 5 and 10 to reduce the
likelihood of premature wear to the pump and other seals.
8. BEGIN CLEANING
Turn on the vacuum switch and begin cleaning the area. Squeeze the trigger
on the tool and pull the wand in a backward motion. Release the trigger a few
inches before finishing the stroke to ensure he vacuum shoe will pass over the
wet area. Then push the tool in a foward motion back over the same clean path
to remove and residual water. Continue in this manner until the entire area has
been cleaned.
9. MONITOR WATER LEVELS
Montior the water level in the solution tank. Do not let the pump run dry. When
the solution level gets low, turn off the pump and vacuum, refill the solution
tank, and empty the dirty water from the recovery tank.
10. FINISHING THE JOB
When finished with the job, remove any unused solution from the clean water
tank and run a few gallons of clear water through the system. Drain the recovery
tank into a drain or bucket asing the drain hose on the front of the machine.
Disconnect the hoses from the machine and the cleaning tool.
