2.0 Grounding Instructions
DANGER: IMPROPER GROUNDING METHOD CAN RESULT IN A RISK OF
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
Electrical equipment must be grounded. If the machine should malfunction or breakdown,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical current to reduce the risk of
electric shock. The Carpet Extractor is equipped with a cord containing a grounding
conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is
properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is necessary, DO NOT connect the grounded
wire to a flat bed terminal. The grounding wire is the wire with insulation and an outer
green surface, with or without yellow stripes.
Grounding Method
The equipment is for use on a normal 120 Volt circuit. It includes a grounded plug (plug
shown in Figure A). A temporary adapter (Figure B and C) may be used to connect this
plug into a 2-pole receptacle (Figure B) if a properly grounded outlet is not available.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet
(Figure A) can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear lug or
the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground, such as a
properly grounded outlet box cover. Whenever an adapter is used, it must be held in place
by a metal screw.
WARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of
electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt
as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. DO NOT modify the plug provided with
the equipment. If the plug will not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian
Electrical Code.

DO NOT USE ON WET SURFACES. DO NOT EXPOSE TO RAIN. STORE
INDOORS.
Recommended Procedure for Storage Continued
• All Carpet Extractors, no matter what the time of year, are shipped with antifreeze in
the solution lines. Prior to first use, fill the tank with one quart of warm water. Attach
the hose and using the hand tool wand, flush out the system by spraying the one quart
of water through the pump.
• Attach the 1-1/2 inch vacuum hose and the brass quick disconnect.
• Fill the base unit (the recovery tank must be removed) with warm water (less than
100 degrees Fahrenheit). Fill to approximately 4 inches from the top. Use a liquid
detergent made for carpet cleaning or upholstery. Read and mix to the dilution ratios
as directed.
• Be sure to replace any filters back into the machine prior to use.
• Do not use citrus acid, buterol or harsh degreasers inside the machine.
3.1
Electrical
Plug cord(s) into 20 AMP grounded wall outlet(s). 20 AMP circuits are normally found in
kitchens and bathrooms. Never remove ground prong from the plug. If a circuit breaker
trips during operation, turn machine off, reset the breaker and move the electrical cord to
a different outlet and resume operation.
3.2
• Disconnect the solution hose from the chemical feed and allow the system to bypass
for 10 minutes. This will work antifreeze into the pressure gauge.
• Attach and wands and hand tools that will also be stored with the Carpet Extractor.
Open the valve for 30 seconds, directing the spray to the solution tank. Disconnect the
hose and with the valve open and the jets pointing down, depress the dimple on the
male QD. This will drain the solution out of the tool. Drain thoroughly before storing.
• Turn off the pump and disconnect all hoses and tools. Vacuum out the solution tank
and thoroughly drain the recovery tank and vacuum hose.
To return to service, flush the pressure system by repeating the above steps, using
fresh water in place of antifreeze.
7.0 Trouble Shooting Guide

Vacuum System
The extractor uses a dual vacuum motor system that provides outstanding water lift and
air flow.
Vacuum Float Assembly Warning System: the float assembly on the vacuum stand
pipe prevents the waste tank from overflowing the stand pipe and damaging the vacuum
motors. Motors will reach a fast, high-pitched sound alerting you when the recovery tank
is about to over flow. When this happens, immediately turn OFF the vacuum switches and
empty the waste tank.
The float assembly has a filter to prevent lint and debris from entering the stand pipe.
Refer to the “Maintenance” section for removal and proper cleaning.
Recovery Tank: the vacuum system requires the use of an external filter. The clear
view in-line filter is included with the machine and must be used on every job.
It is also necessary to use a defoamer to eliminate foam build-up in the recovery
tank which could lead to foam/moisture entering the vacuums and contributing to
early failure of the vacuum motors.
If moisture does enter the vacuum motors, contact an authorized service center. To
prevent moisture from damaging the vacuum motors during storage, empty the recovery
tank and store with the lid open.

4.0 Shutdown Procedures
• If using the auto-fill system, turn the water supply OFF before finishing each job.
This will allow use of the water and chemicals already in the tank and will reduce the
amount of excess water to be disposed of later.
• When finished cleaning, turn OFF all switches.
• If the auto-fill system was used and there is still water in the solution tank, push the
float down to release the water inlet hose pressure before disconnecting the hose from
the faucet. Disconnect the water inlet hose from the quick disconnect on the front of
the machine.

WD-40 Vacuum Motors
Should moisture ever enter the vacuum motors, completely drain the recovery tank,
open the recovery tank lid, remove the vacuum float assembly, turn on both vacuum
motors and spray a five (5) second burst of WD-40 into the standpipe. Continue to
run the vacuum motors for at least three (3) minutes.
To prevent moisture from damaging the vacuum motors during storage, empty the
recovery tank and store with the lid open.
6.0 Storage and Freeze Protection
You must winterize your Carpet Extractor to protect the pump system from freezing
and also damage being caused to fittings and valves. Damage due to freezing is not
covered under the Warranty. Store your extractor in temperatures over 40 degrees
Fahrenheit. If you plan on storing your extractor in freezing conditions or for a long
period of time, the following procedure should help prevent your Carpet Extractor
from freezing and prevent pump and seals from drying out.
Recommended Procedure for Storage
• In a separate container, mix 1/2-gallon of water with 1/2-gallon of automotive
radiator antifreeze (ethylene glycol type). Mix well and pour into the solution
tank.
• Connect the pressure hose to the female quick disconnect (QD) on the front of
the machine. Insert an open-ended male QD into the female QD on the end of the
pressure hose.
• When primed, turn down the pressure to 100 PSI.
• Disconnect the open-ended QD and connect the solution hose to the male QD at
the auto-fill/chemical feed connection. CAUTION: applying high pressure (over
100 PSI) to the chemical feed system will damage the mechanism.
• With the chemical feed supply tube at the bottom of the solution tank, turn on
the pump and allow to circulate for 10 minutes. Check to make sure the chemical
supply tube is drawing the antifreeze solution. This will introduce antifreeze into
the chemical feed system.
(10) 12-Gallon, 300 PSI Carpet Extractor with Heat
• Disconnect the solution hose and vacuum hose from the cleaning tool. Pull the valve
trigger to release pressure from the hose before disconnecting the solution hose from
the cleaning tool.
• Disconnect the clear view in-line filter from the vacuum hoses and clean the filter as
needed.
• Disconnect the vacuum hose and solution
hose from the machine.
• If water remains in the solution tank, use
the short vacuum hose and vacuum the
excess water from the tank.
• If the auto-fill system was utilized, place the
chemical feed hose back into the solution
tank.
• If the dump-out system was used: turn the
waste pump switch ON to pump out any
remaining water from the recovery tank;
turn switch OFF, remove the dump pumpout hose from the outlet fitting and replace
the cap; roll up the hose toward drain to
remove the remaining water from the hose;
connect ends of hose together to prevent
dirty water from dripping from hose during
transport.
• Disconnect the power cords from the outlets
and from the machine.
• Remove the float assembly from the
recovery tank and clean filter as needed.
Replace float assembly and tank lid.
• Drain any remaining water from the recovery
tank and dispose of in a sanitary drain. DO
NOT use the same bucket to drain the tank
that you used to fill the tank.
• Roll up all hoses and tools. Collect and store
extractor, all tools and accessories.

5.0 Maintenance
5.2
Regular maintenance is required to keep your Carpet Extractor in proper working
condition. Failure to properly maintain your machine could void warranty. Thoroughly
clean all equipment and accessories after each use:
This screen should be cleaned frequently if
the Carpet Extractor is being operated in an
environment which has an abnormal buildup of lint and debris, such as cleaning newly
installed carpet. Loss of vacuum is most
normally associated with lint build-up in this
filter at the top of the vacuum stand pipe.
• Rinse the solution and recover tanks with clean water.
• Flush the pump system with clean water, including all hoses and wand(s).
• Do not allow water to remain in the tanks after use.
• Lubricate all quick disconnects with WD-40 or similar lubricant.
• Clean vacuum float assembly screen.
WARNING: Disconnect electrical power cord before performing any service or
maintenance inside the machine base or before testing or repairing switches or power
cords. Failure to do so may result in severe personal injury or death.

Rinse Out Recovery Tank
Build-up of fine silt and debris can damage the
Vacuum Float Assembly
auto-dump pump and dump valve. Clean out
the recovery tank on a regular basis to extend the
life of these components as well as keep the tank and machine smelling better.
To rinse out recovery tank, remove the recovery tank lid and open the dump valve. Place
a bucket under the dump valve. Use a hose to rinse the dirt and debris out of the recovery
tank. Close the dump valve and spray the tank with deodorizer or disinfectant. Proceed to
waste pump cleaning and replace the recovery tank lid. Dispose of dirty water and debris.
Clean Fresh Water Tank Filter
The fresh water tank filter is located at the bottom of the solution tank. Unscrew the filter
counterclockwise and rinse with fresh water. If necessary, use a tooth brush to remove
detergent build-up. Note, a heavy build-up is a warning sign that the solution system
should be flushed. See the “Flush Chemical System” section.
5.2
Clean Vacuum Float Assembly Screen
Inside the recovery tank, on top of the stand pipe, is the vacuum float assembly. It
functions to prevent debris and water from being sucked into the vacuum motors.
Operating the Carpet Extractor without the float assembly or with a poorly maintained
assembly, will greatly decrease the life of the vacuum motors and will void the warranty.
If debris builds up on this filter, it will reduce the vacuum air flow and may cause a
significant decrease in the rate of water recovery. If debris prevents the float ball from
moving or seating inside the assembly, it may not stop the airflow when the tank fills with
water and the water will be sucked in the vacuums and blow out the exhaust.
To clean, twist off the float assembly from the stand pipe and clean the screen. Pull fibers
and lint off and rinse with clean water. Push the assembly back onto the stand pipe and
replace the recovery tank lid.
