New Equipment Warranty
Lifetime on body, 2-years on vacuum motors, 1-year on pump and all electrical components,
90-days on tools and accessories.
Warranty Policy
All equipment is inspected and tested before shipping from the manufacturer. All parts are
warranted to be new and free from defects in workmanship and material, under normal use to the
original retail purchaser. This warranty limits manufacturer’s liability for defects in workmanship
or materials for replacement of defective parts only. The manufacturer accepts no liability for
incidental or consequential damages arisen from the use of any equipment, defective or not. This
warranty is in lieu of all expressed or implied warranties and is extended only to the original retail
purchaser. Manufacturer sales and service representatives are not authorized to waive or alter
the terms of this warranty, or to increase the obligations of the manufacturer under the warranty.
Parts replaced or repaired under this warranty are warranted for the remainder of the original
warranty period.
Labor is only provided by authorized service centers. If an authorized service center is not near
you, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to take their machine to an authorized service center.
The manufacturer covers up to one (1) year (365 days) of service labor at the manufacturer’s
calculated hourly labor rate/repair time when performed by a manufacturer-authorized service
provider. Ultimately, labor reimbursement costs are at the discretion of the manufacturer. At no
time is the manufacturer responsible for travel time to complete on-call repairs. After one (1) year,
the original retail purchaser is responsible for all labor costs with no manufacturer reimbursement.
The original purchaser must contact the manufacturer to follow correct RMA/warranty procedures.
They must include a copy of the RMA Sheet enclosed in the box with the returned item. No returns
shall be authorized unless the proper RMA procedures are followed. It is the responsibility of the
distributor to repair the client’s equipment as soon as possible.
The manufacturer charges a 25% restocking fee for any items that are being returned to stock.
Items must be new, unused, free of damage and are only good for up to 30 days. After 30 days, the
manufacturer does not accept the return of any items for a store credit.
Authorized warranty replacement parts need to come directly from the manufacturer. Any use of
any other parts will void warranty. The manufacturer does not reimburse for parts used by client
that were not supplied directly for the machine under warranty.
The client must contact the manufacturer prior to working on or changing out of any parts, etc.
The manufacturer must issue an RMA Sheet containing approved labor time and replacement
parts. Do not send parts or equipment back to the manufacturer without an RMA Number and
approval. No labor will be paid for, nor parts cost paid for or reimbursed, that have not previously
been approved by the manufacturer. All warranty work must be approved and authorized to
qualify, and appropriate warranty procedures must be followed.
14.0 Storage and Freeze Protection
You must winterize your Hard Surface 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 Hard
Surface Extractor from freezing and prevent pump and seals from drying out.
Recommended Procedure for Storage
• Pour a quart of RV Water System Antifreeze 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.
• 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 Hard Surface
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.
The auto-dump pump-out does not require freeze protection as long as the
recovery tank is completely drained and allowed to thoroughly dry. To return
to service, flush the pressure system by repeating the above steps, using fresh
water in place of antifreeze.
The warranty starts on the purchase date by the original purchaser from an authorized distributor,
subject to proof of purchase. The Machine Registration Form must be completed and sent to
the original manufacturer at the time of purchase. If proof of purchase cannot be identified, the
warranty start date is ninety (90) days after the date of sale to an authorized distributor.

RMA/warranty procedures. Must include a copy of RMA Sheet enclosed in the box with returned
item. No returns shall be authorized unless proper RMA procedures are followed. It is the
responsibility of the distributor to repair the client’s equipment as soon as possible. Labor is only
provided by authorized service centers. If an authorized service center is not near you, it is the
purchaser’s responsibility to take their machine to an authorized service center.
Client must contact the distributor prior to working on or changing out any parts, etc. Manufacturer

2.0 Grounding Instructions
DANGER: IMPROPER INSTALLATION OF THE GROUNDING PLUG CAN
RESULT IN A RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK!
This product must be grounded. In the event of an electrical short circuit, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing an escape wire with an appropriate
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an outlet that is installed properly and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding instructions are not
completely understood, or if in doubt as to whether the product is grounded properly.
DO NOT modify the plug provided. If it will not fit into the outlet, have a proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
This electric equipment is for use on a
normal 120 volt circuit. It has a grounded
plug that looks like the plug illustrated in
(Fig A). The use of a temporary adaptor is
NOT recommended.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary
adapter is not permitted by the Canadian
Electrical Code.
3.0 Care of your Machine
Treat your machine as you would any other high grade, precision made product.
Dropping, unreasonable bumping across thresholds, leaving outdoors and other misuses
may result in a damaged unit which will not be covered under warranty.
When not in use, the power cord(s) should be wrapped around the molded-in cord wrap
and stored in a dry area. After each use, wipe the machine body, accessories and power
cord(s) with a slightly damp cloth.
WARNING: DO NOT use machine without the proper filters in place. Failure to do
so, will VOID your warranty.

Setup: inside the solution tank is a
bottle float. Check the chemical feed
supply foot valve for debris and clean
if necessary. Insert the line into the
cleaning concentrate so that it touches
the bottom of the bottle. Set cleaning
concentrate on the machine or inside the
fresh water solution tank opening.
Connect the fill hose to the quick
disconnect located on the back of the
machine. Attached the water supply
hose to any available faucet. It may
require adapters to fit the various faucet
combinations you will encounter. Never
force a threaded fitting. Place a towel
over the faucet connection so that any
spray will be controlled. Turn on the
water and check the hose connections
for leaks.
The solution tank will fill approximately
half full (about 5-gallons). As the tank
is filling, cleaning concentrate is being
drawn into the solution tank.
Shutdown: before the end of each job, turn off the water supply to prevent the solution
tank from becoming completely full. With the cleaning completed and the solution pump
turned off, disconnect the fill hose from the faucet, drain the water in the fill hose back
into the solution tank and remove the fill hose. Remove the chemical feed supply tube
from the chemical solution jug, clean the filter and place into the solution tank. Vacuum
out the solution tank and clean the solution tank water filter.

Turn on the pressure pump switch and the vacuum switches (both vacuum I and II
switches). Direct the solution back into the recovery tank through the vacuum inlet. Cup
your hand around the vacuum inlet allowing the vacuum from the Hard Surface Extractor
to pull the solution through the solution hose. Allow solution to run for 10 seconds. This
allows the solution to push out any air in the pumping system. Repeat this procedure if
necessary. When the pressure hose is connected to the wand, the pressure drop should
only be approximately 100 PSI.

The Hard Surface Extractor utilizes a twin piston pump which is adjustable from 1001200 PSI. Never operate the pump at a pressure setting over 1200 PSI or without water
in the solution tank. Doing so will damage the pump and will void the warranty. Anytime
the Hard Surface Extractor has been stored for a period of time or has had the pump run
“dry,” the solution pump will have to be primed to remove air which might be trapped in
the pumping system (see “Priming the Solution Pump” section).
Priming the Solution Pump: 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.
Vacuum System
Vacuum Motors: the Hard Surface Extractor utilizes a unique two (2) vacuum system,
using one (1) 3-stage and one (1) 2-stage motor, which produces both outstanding
vacuum lift and airflow for superior extraction and drying times. The vacuum system can
be used with one vacuum motor for cleaning delicate fabrics or both vacuum motors for
carpet cleaning, water extraction and hard surface cleaning.
Automatic Vacuum Shut-Off: The float assembly shut-off, located in the recovery
tank on the vacuum stand pipe, prevents the waste tank from overflowing into the stand
pipe and damaging the vacuum motors. The float assembly will cut-off vacuum to the
waste tank. When this happens, immediately turn off the vacuum motors and empty the
waste tank. If the operator continues to use machine after the tank is full, it will void the
Warranty. 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.
Drawing No.
Quantity
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.

5.1
Electrical Cords
Two (2) 25-foot power cords are supplied with your Hard Surface Extractor. Cord 1
powers both vacuum motors and Cord 2 powers the high pressure solution pump and
waste pump. The amperage required by each cord requires that the two (2) cords be
plugged into separate circuits.
• Cord 1 (left side): will require a 20 Amp
circuit to run both vacuums.
• Cord 2 (right side): can be plugged into a
15 Amp circuit if the auto-dump pump-out
is not used or a 20 Amp circuit if the autodump pump-out is used.
20 Amp circuits are usually found in kitchens
and bathrooms. Make sure not other items are
plugged into these circuits. An overloaded
circuit may not always trip the breaker and
may not provide sufficient power to operate the
machine. Plug the two (2) cords into two (2)
Cord 1 (left side)
outlets from different circuits.

Water and Chemical Dilution – Auto Fill
The chemical dilution rate is controlled by the metering tip and the dilution rate can only
changed by changing the metering tip (see section “How to Change the Metering Tip” on
page 11 for instructions).
Chemical Feed Setup
• Remove the chemical feed hose from the solution tank. Make sure the float is attached
to the valve and hanging freely.
• Place the end of the hose into a container of liquid chemical.
• If the tip is removed and the proportioning system operated with no tip, the dilution
rate will be 8:1 (the equivalent to adding 16-1/4 oz. of chemical to each gallon of
water).
• If a fresh water rinse with no chemical is desired, simply leave the chemical feed hose
inside the solution tank.

How to Change the Metering Tip
• Remove the chemical feed hose from the barb on the side of the proportioning valve.
• Unscrew and remove the old tip.
• Screw in the proper tip for your chemical tip and place the hose back on the barb.
Metering Tip Kit
The Metering Tip Kit contains 14 different colored metering tips, allowing dilution rates
from 11:1 up to 427:1. Refer to the chart below to select the tip that meets the dilution
rate for your chemical application.
• For example, if you require 1-1/2 ounces of chemical per gallon of water, change to
the red metering tip with the dilution rate of 85:1.
• The dilution rates are based on chemicals with water-like viscosity. Thicker (more
viscous) chemicals will dilute at a different rate.

Connection of Auto-Dump Hose
The auto-dump hose is a 50-foot section of a 3/4” garden hose.
• Remove the cap from the auto-dump outlet fitting on the back of the machine.
• Connect the auto-dump hose to the outlet fitting.
• Place the other end of the hose in a commode or drain connected to a sanitary sewer
system.
• Secure the hose end to prevent movement during pumping.
Use defoamer to prevent foam build-up in the recovery tank during cleaning and to
keep foam/moisture from entering vacuums.
50-Foot Auto-Dump Hose
Part No. 80-0112
If not using the auto-dump feature, the auto-dump hose does not need to be connected.
When the recovery tank fills during cleaning, the float ball assembly in the vacuum inlet
filter will rise and will automatically shut-off the vacuum air flow to prevent the recovery
tank from overfilling and waste from getting into the vacuums. When this occurs:
• Immediately turn OFF the vacuum switches.
• Drain the recovery tank. Turn OFF the pump switch while draining the tank. Turn
pump switch back ON upon resumption of cleaning.
• Close the dump valve and turn the vacuum switches back ON when ready to resume
cleaning.
If the auto-dump or vacuum shut-off is not working properly, refer to the “Trouble
Shooting Guide” section or contact your distributor for advice or assistance.
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or injury, repairs to wiring should only be performed by experienced service technicians. If
you are not experienced in checking electrical wiring, contact your nearest authorized service center to perform tests and repairs to

Adjusting the Pressure
When the high pressure solution pump is on and primed, pressure will show on the gauge
only while the tool is being sprayed. When the tool is sprayed, the gauge will display the
pressure being delivered to the tool. When the tool is not being sprayed, the gauge will
return to zero.
• To decrease the pressure, turn the black knob on the pressure regulator to the left
(counter-clockwise).
• To increase pressure, turn the black knob on the pressure regulator to the right
(clockwise).
• To adjust pressure to your tool and surface requirements: spray the tool; check the
pressure on the gauge; re-adjust as needed to set the machine at the desired pressure;
choose the pressure setting that best meets your type of cleaning.
Should moisture ever enter the vacuum motors,
completely drain the recovery tank, open the recovery
tank lid, remove the vac shut-off assembly, turn on both
vacuum motors and spray a 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.
Vinegar may be used to prevent mineral deposit build-up in your machine’s lines and
pump. Failure to do so may clog your lines and pump. Every two weeks, pour vinegar
into the solution tank (dilute with 1/2 water). Run the pump, while squeezing your wand
or upholstery tool’s trigger unit you smell vinegar or notice it coming out of the tool. Let
the machine sit overnight, and no longer, with the vinegar in its lines. The next day, flush
the machine with 1-gallon of clean water or until you do not smell vinegar any longer.
PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to use CLR, follow the directions on the bottle. DO NOT
leave CLR in the machine’s lines and flush thoroughly. CLR may corrode the machine’s
components and VOID your warranty. If you choose to use vinegar, you MUST dilute
with 1/2 water. Failure to do so may damage the machine’s components and VOID your
warranty.
To increase solution pressure, turn
the regulator knob clockwise.
To decrease solution pressure,
turn the regulator knob counterclockwise.
The maximum pressure setting is 1200 PSI. However, the highest pressure attained is
dependent on the amount of water flow at the tool:
• Smaller jets and lower flow will allow for higher
pressure at the tool.
• Larger jets and higher flow will lower the maximum
pressure attained at the tool.
The desired setting will depend on the type of cleaning
and tool used. For example:
• Carpet Cleaning with 2-Jet Wand: 400 PSI
• Tile Cleaning with Hard Surface Tool: 1000 PSI
If adjusting or maintaining pressure becomes a problem,
refer to the “Trouble Shooting Guide” section or contact your distributor for advice or
assistance.

Flush Chemical System
Chemical build-up in the chemical system can prevent the system from drawing
chemical.
• Rinse the chemical system with fresh water (for heavy chemical build-up, a mild acid
can be added to the rinse water).
• Remove the chemical feed hose from the solution tank and
place the end of the chemical feed hose into water or mild acid
solution.
• Connect the auto-fill water supply hose to the water inlet
(male quick disconnect) on the front of the machine.
• Connect the other end of the hose to a water faucet and
turn ON the water. Let the water flow into the tank until
you are sure the rinse solution has been drawn through
the proportioner and mixed with the incoming water. The
metering tip can be removed from the proportioner to speed
up the process.
• Once the rinse solution has been drawn through the
proportioner, turn OFF the water faucet and disconnect the
auto-fill water supply hose.
• Plug in Cord 1 (left side), connect the short 4-foot vacuum
hose to the vacuum barb, turn on one or both vacuums and use

After cleaning the recovery tank, remove the cap and connect the green 3/4” x 50-foot
garden hose to the auto-dump pump-out port located on the back of the machine. Secure
the other end of the hose where you wish to direct the discharge of waste water, such as a
toilet or sink.
• Disconnect the vacuum hose and solution
hose from the machine.
Fasten the discharge end of the hose tightly. With Cord 2 (right side) plugged in, turn the
recovery tank switch to the ON position. Use a hose to fill the recovery tank to a point
where the float switch turns the waste pump ON. The pump will turn on automatically
when water in the recovery tank is approximately 2/3rds full. The pump will discharge
the waste water down to a level of about 2 inches in the recovery tank. Let the pump run
until it pumps the level down to a point when the flat switch shuts OFF the auto-dump
pump.
• If the auto-fill system was utilized, place the
chemical feed hose back into the solution
tank.

Clean Vacuum Shut-Off Float Assembly Screen
Inside the recovery tank, on top of the stand pipe,
is the vacuum shut-off float assembly. It functions
to prevent debris and water from being sucked into
the vacuum motors. Operating the Hard Surface
Extractor without the shut-off assembly or with a
poorly maintained assembly, will greatly decrease
the life of the vacuum motors and will void the
warranty.
The auto-dump pump-out system is capable of handling most debris that passes through
the waste filter. However, for optimum performance, keep the recovery tank clean and
remove debris from the filter screen of the auto-dump pump-out. This should be done on
a daily basis or as needed, depending upon use and amount of debris.
Every two (2) weeks, run the auto-dump pump-out system with a full tank of clean water
to ensure that debris and lint are not accumulating in the base of the pump.
If debris builds up on this filter, it will reduce
the vacuum air flow and may cause a significant
Vacuum Shut-Off Assembly
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.
This screen should be cleaned frequently if the Hard Surface Extractor is being operated
in an environment which has an abnormal build-up 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.
7.5
Clean Auto-Dump Pump Out
To service the auto-dump pump-out more thoroughly, unhook the vacuum cuff, cut the
zip tie around the looped electrical cord and lift it out of the recovery tank. Unsnap the
screen from the bottom, clean it and clean out the area inside.
7.7
Rinse Out Recovery Tank
Build-up of fine silt and debris can damage the 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 Clear View In-Line Filter
Build-up of debris in the filter bag of the clear view in-line filter will reduce vacuum air
flow and may cause a significant decrease in water recovery. A torn bag will allow debris
past the filter and into the recovery tank. This debris can clog the waste pump and the
vacuum shut-off assembly. The clear view in-line filter must be examined and cleaned
regularly to keep the Hard Surface Extractor functioning properly.
To clean, push the latch lever and open the lid. Remove the filter bag. Examine the bag
and clean or replace as needed. Rinse the body of the hydro-filter with clean water.
Examine the o-ring seal and replace as needed. Re-install the new or cleaned bag. Close
lid and secure latch.
Flush Solution Tank and Pump
At least once a month, the Hard Surface Extractor hoses and tools should be flushed
to remove alkaline residues. Follow the steps of the “Storage and Freeze Protection”
section, using a solution of one (1) part warm water with three (3) parts white vinegar in
place of the antifreeze solution.
Then, repeat the steps using two gallons of fresh water:
Lid
• Pour two (2) or three (3) gallon of clean water into the solution tank.
Filter Bag
• With both Cords 1 and 2 plugged in, connect the pump and prime hose to the solution
outlet female quick disconnect.
O-Ring
• Direct the end of the prime hose into the recovery tank barb.
