MACHINE INSPECTION
Float Screen Assembly
Vacuum air is removed from the tank by the white
elbow on the right side of the clear dome. This elbow
has a foam sensitive float mechanism attached.
• As the water level rises, the float ball will rise into the
tube and shut off the airflow of the vacuum.
• It does not shut off the vacuum motor.
• Stop the machine and empty the Recovery tank.
• Now that the machine is unpacked remember to
recycle all packing materials.
• Inspect the machine for damage or missing
components. If damage is found, contact the local
freight company to file a freight claim.
Accessory quick connect option
This connection is located at the lower right side of
the machine next to the wheel.
• To insert the solution hose push the outer collar back
and insert the hose fitting fully. Release the collar to
secure the hose in place.
MACHINE COMPONENTS
PREPARING THE MACHINE
Solution Tank
The solution tank is the lower part of the machine
body. It has a capacity of 8 Gallons (30 liters).
Preparing the Solution and Recovery tanks:
• Never use water over 140°F (60°C).
• Excessively hot water will damage components such
as the pump, valves, and seals. Observe the carpet
manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.
• Make sure the black drain hose from the Recovery
tank is securely closed to keep fluids from draining
out. To close push the hose securely into the metal
holding plug.
• Put 1 to 2 gallons (4 to 8 liters) of water in the
solution tank first to help dilute the chemicals and
prevent excess sudsing. Dilute the cleaning
chemicals according to the manufacturer’s
instructions.
• Fill the tank by pouring the water and cleaning
chemicals through the mesh filter that covers the
opening at the front of the solution tank.
• Always use a defoamer in the Recovery tank to
protect the vacuum motor of this machine.
• Every time the solution tank is filled, add 4 to 6
ounces (125 to 188 milliliters) of defoamer to the
Recovery tank.
• Fit the two clear vacuum hoses onto the white
elbows of the clear dome.
• Make sure the clear dome and gasket fits securely
on the recovery tank for an air-tight seal. The
vacuum motor will pull the dome down (creating a
suction) during use.
Connect the Power Cord
This machine is equipped with a twist lock power cord.
• Align the three electrical contacts, push the contacts
together and turn one of the plugs 1/8 of a turn to
lock the two plugs in place. This will prevent the
machine from disconnecting during use.
Recovery Tank
The recovery tank is the upper part of the machine
body. The tank has a capacity of 8 gallons (30 liters).
Control Panel
The operator control panel is located at the upper rear
area of the machine. This panel has components that
control various machine functions:
• The left rocker switch turns both the solution pump
and vacuum motor on and off.
• The right rocker switch turns the brush motor on and
off.
• The red square switch in the center of the panel
allows the liquid to be sprayed onto the carpet. Push
and hold the switch to start spraying liquid, release
the switch to stop.
• The circuit breaker on the right protects the brush
motor.
Brush Head Assembly
This machine has a floating brush head assembly that
adapts to the different carpet pile heights. The brush
head is offset to the left side of the machine to clean
against the wall. The brush head assembly is operated
by a simple foot lever mechanism.
• To lower the assembly to the floor, tap the lever with
your toe.
• To raise the assembly from the floor, simply step on
the lever.
• The brush head assembly includes the Spray Bar
with three Spray Tips. The spray tips can be
removed with just a quarter of a turn in either
direction and does not require tools.
• This machine can be tipped back in order to access
the spray tips, with the recovery tank empty, lower
the handle toward the floor.
Vacuum Shoe
The 16” (41 cm) wide vacuum shoe is located at the
front of the machine. As the machine moves backward
the vacuum shoe pulls the liquid out of the carpet.
NOTE: Some models may have a direct-wired power
cord.
Cleanout Hose
This 4-foot (1.2 meter) hose is supplied with this
machine; it is used to suction water from the clean
solution tank into the recovery tank.
Brush motor circuit breaker
If the brush becomes over loaded by deep pile carpet,
hair, strings or an obstruction the motor will draw too
much current and the circuit breaker will trip.
MACHINE OPERATION
This machine is very maneuverable and is designed
to clean as you pull backwards across the carpet.
When moving forward, always push down on the
handle to raise the front of the machine up.
Normal Cleaning
• Always vacuum the carpet with a vacuum cleaner
before extraction.
• We recommend you wear clean tennis shoes or
non-slip shoes when working with a carpet
extractor. Street shoes or rubber cushion soled
shoes when wet will release absorbed dirt or
grease onto the wet carpet and cause re-soiling.
• You may need to pre-treat spots and heavy traffic
lanes before extraction. Refer to the “Common
Stains and Cleaning Treatments” chart for
examples of types of stains and the solution used
to treat the stain.
• Soak up excess liquids with a towel.
• Test cleaner on a small inconspicuous area to
make sure it will not damage the carpet fibers.
• Apply appropriate spotter, following directions on
the container.
• You may apply the pre-treat chemicals in a number
of ways:
• Use a hand held spray bottle.
• Use a 2 - 3 gallon (7 - 8 liter) pump up container
with a spray wand.
• Use the machine spray bar, by tilting the machine
backwards slightly away from the carpet. Press
and hold the square, intermittent switch to apply
the chemical.
• Plug the machine into an appropriate wall outlet.
• Lower the brush.
• Extract the perimeter of the room first, move the
vac shoe as close to the wall or baseboard as
possible. Use the left side of the machine to clean
against the wall for best results.
• Start on one side of the room and work your way
across the room in rows, always working away
from the cord.
• Push and hold the red, square switch to start
spraying and begin moving backwards. About 12 to
18" (30 to 46 cm) before your stopping point,
release the square switch to stop spraying, and
continue moving backwards to recover all of the
solution you have just applied. This will prevent
leaving an excessively wet spot in the carpet.
Move forward to start the next path, overlap 2” (5
cm) for best results. Continue cleaning the entire
area in this method.
• As you clean, keep an eye on the liquid level in the
recovery tank. Empty the recovery tank as needed
during operation.
Do not apply water more than twice in one area to
prevent excess wetting.
• Over-wetting can damage the carpet and the
underlying floor.
• If the brush becomes over loaded by deep pile
carpet, hair, strings, or an obstruction the motor will
draw too much current and the circuit breaker will
trip.
• Unplug the machine, check for debris, and remove
it.
• Push down on the circuit breaker to reset it and
resume operation.
SPECIAL CLEANING
This machine may be used to perform special
cleaning jobs other than “normal” scrubbing.
Double Scrubbing
This procedure provides deeper cleaning on heavily
soiled floors.
• Double scrub by making a second pass over the
carpet with only the brush turned on. Then, make
a third pass with the solution pump, vacuum and
brush on to remove the most dirt. Make an
additional vacuum pass to dry the carpet as much
as possible.
• The slower the cleaning pass, the more dwell time,
increasing the amount of dirt that is removed from
the carpet.
OPTION - ACCESSORY CLEANING
Preparing the Accessories:
• Select the correct tool for the job to be performed.
• Connect the solution hose to the quick connect at
the lower right side of the machine and on the tool.
• To connect a tool, pull back on the collar of the
quick connect, insert one end of the solution hose
fitting and push it in until it locks. Attach the other
end of the solution hose to the tool in the same
manner.
• Remove the machine hose from the left side of the
dome and insert one end of the recovery hose into
the dome. Attach the other end of the hose to the
accessory tool.
Cleaning upholstery, stairs or confined areas:
• Prepare the solution / recovery tanks as you would
for normal carpet cleaning.
• To begin cleaning, turn on the rocker switch for the
solution pump and vac motor only. When you
squeeze the trigger of the accessory tool it will
spray the cleaning solution, release the trigger to
stop the spray.
• Do not apply water more than twice in one area
to prevent excess wetting.
• Over-wetting can damage upholstery and / or
fabric.
Priming the Solution Pump
During normal use the clean solution tank may run
dry. This will allow air to enter the pump and solution
lines. Air in the solution lines will prevent the pump
from working properly, you must prime the pump.
• Refill the solution tank.
• Disconnect any accessory tool that may be in use.
CAUTION - place machine near a floor drain prior to
the next step.
• Turn on the solution pump switch.
• Depress the center pin in the accessory quick
connect for 60 - 90 seconds (minimum). The pump
will spray air and solution out until all of the air has
been forced from the solution lines. When all of the
air has been expelled you may resume your
cleaning operation.
NOTE: The solution pump will not prime through the
spray bar or an accessory too.
MACHINE MAINTENANCE
Routine maintenance is critical to ensure proper
machine operation and cleaning performance.
Perform all maintenance procedures as follows.
Always turn OFF all machine switches before
performing any maintenance.
DAILY MAINTENANCE
At the end of the day empty all liquids from both the
solution and recovery tanks. Rinse both tanks with
clean waster to prevent chemical residue build up,
allow to air dry to prevent orders.
• The solution tank can be emptied by: spraying the
liquid out through the spray bar, or using the cleanout hose.
• To use the clean-out hose remove the machine’s
recovery hose, from the left elbow of the clear
dome. Replace it with one end of the cleanout
hose.
• Remove the mesh filter from the front of the
solution tank and place the other end of the cleanout hose in to the solution tank.
• Turn on the vacuum motor and suction all of the
liquid into the recovery tank.
• The recovery tank is emptied through a large
rubber hose at the back of the machine. Remove
the plug and drain the liquids according to your
local EPA regulations.
• Rinse the tank clean of all debris. Position the
clear dome offset on the recovery tank to allow for
air-drying and prevent odor build up.
• Remove any residue from the screen and float ball
to ensure proper operation. Replace float
assembly in recovery tank.
• Store in a dry area.
• Store with brush assembly up.
• Check the drain hose for damage.
• Remove the spray tips (1/4 turn) from the spray bar
and put them in a glass or plastic container with a
solution of 25% vinegar and water overnight to
remove any chemical residue.
• Unplug the machine and inspect the brush
assembly (paying special attention to the ends of
the rollers) for buildup of carpet fibers, hair or other
materials.
• Remove all debris from the brush. Failure to
remove this material can overload to the circuit
breaker, jam and break the belt, obstruct and
damage the bearings, or burn out the brush drive
motor.
Weekly Maintenance (25 Hours)
• Verify all daily and weekly maintenance has been
performed.
• Flush clean solution tank and hoses with a mixture
of 8 ounces (250 milliliters) white vinegar to onegallon (4 liter) warm water.
• Remove and clean the fine mesh filter in the
bottom of the solution tank.
• Check the vacuum shoe for any debris or
obstruction such as carpet fibers. Carefully
remove any debris to ensure the best air-flow and
liquid recovery.
• Repair or replace any worn or damaged
components as needed.
Mandatory Periodic Maintenance
It is mandatory that the following maintenance
procedure be performed at the described interval.
Failure to perform this procedure may result in poor
machine performance, machine component damage
and failure. This procedure should be performed by
an NSS authorized distributor or service center.
Repairs performed by an unauthorized company will
void the machine warranty. If you require assistance
finding an authorized service center, please contact
NSS Enterprises, Inc.
After every 750 hours of operation
• Inspect the vacuum motor carbon brushes for
wear. Replace the vacuum motor carbon brushes
when they are 7/16in. (11mm) in length.
• Check the belt for wear and tightness.
COMMON STAINS AND CLEANING TREATMENTS
TREATMENT METHODS
• Remove excess material; if the stain is liquid blot excess liquids with a dry cloth or paper towel, if the material is a
solid remove it by scraping it with a dull edge (butter knife).
• Clean the remaining stain as directed by the chart below. Always follow the directions on the container. Apply the
cleaning material directly to the stain (avoid over wetting the carpet or upholstery). Remove the loosened stain
material with a white absorbent cloth, tissue, or paper towel.
• When the carpet is dry, gently brush the carpet pile to restore its appearance.
• Treat unknown stains with a volatile solvent first and follow with other agents as required. If you are uncertain of the
effect of the cleaning agent on the carpet fiber or dye, test on an inconspicuous area first.
