The intermittent setting requires the
operator to hold any one of the
three trigger switches in the “on”
position with the fingers, and is
typically used in small areas where
short cleaning passes are made.
The continuous setting allows the
operator to set the switch in the “on”

MAINTENANCE
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
Twice a month, flush a white vinegar solution (One
quart vinegar to two gallons of water) or anti-browning
solution (mixed as directed) through the extractor. This
will prevent build-up of alkaline residue in the system. If
spray jets become clogged, remove the spray tips,
wash them thoroughly, and blow-dry.
NOTE: Always store machine with brush
in “Store” position.
NOTE: Do not use pins, wire, etc. to clean nozzles as
this could destroy spray pattern.
Periodically inspect all hoses, electrical cables and
connections on your machine. Frayed or cracked
hoses should be repaired or replaced to eliminate
vacuum or solution pressure loss. If the cable
insulation is broken or frayed, repair or replace it
immediately. Don’t take chances with electrical fire or
shock.
DAILY / REGULAR MAINTENANCE
Before making any adjustments or repairs to the
machine, disconnect the power cord from electrical
source.
1. Empty unused cleaning solution from the solution
tank.
2. Inspect and clean filter screen in solution tank.
3. Flush pumping system with 4 or 7 liters of clean,
hot water.
4. After each use, rinse tank with fresh water.
Periodically inspect the recovery tank and
decontaminate if necessary, using a Hospital Grade
Virucide or a 1-10 bleach to water solution. Waste
water should be disposed of properly.
5. Check for and remove any lint or debris around vac
shoe.
6. Check spray jets for full spray pattern.
7. Remove lint and dirt build-up from brush and
housing.
NOTE: Brush removal.
A. To remove brush, grab and pull brush out from
end opposite drive belt (operator’s right).
Remove other end from brush driver.
B. To install brush, line up slots in brush core with
pin in driver on drive belt side (operator’s left)
and push brush onto driver. Then snap bearing
end (opposite end) of brush into retaining clip.
8. Check cooling air screen (located on frame behind
left wheel) for lint or debris.
9. Check float and shut-off screen and clean as
necessary.
