1.0 Safety Instructions
READ THIS MANUAL BEFORE OPERATING MACHINERY. KNOW THE
PROPER SET-UP, OPERATION, CORRECT APPLICATIONS AND THE
LIMITATIONS OF THIS EQUIPMENT BEFORE USE.
This carpet extractor will afford you many years of trouble-free operating satisfaction,
provided it is given the proper care. All parts have passed rigid quality control standards
throughout the assembly process. Prior to packaging, your carpet extractor was again
inspected for assurance of flawless operation.
This machine is protectively packed to prevent damage in shipment. We recommend that
upon delivery, unpack the unit and inspect it for any possible damage. Only a visual
inspection will reveal damage that may have occurred.
If damage is discovered, immediately notify the transportation company that delivered
your equipment. As a shipper, we are unable to report any claim for damage. You must
originate any claim within five (5) days.
This manual is for your protection and information. Please read carefully since failure to
follow precautions could result in discomfort or injury.
Reduce the Risk of Fire, Electric Shock or Injury
Use only as described in this safety operating manual. Use only the manufacturer’s
recommended attachments, accessories, replacement parts and filters. Replace damaged
or worn parts immediately with genuine, original equipment parts to maintain safety and
to protect your limited warranty.
Always turn OFF the carpet extractor before connecting, disconnecting or working on
the machine. This equipment must be connected to a properly grounded outlet only
(see grounding instructions). (1) or (2) 25-foot, 12/3-gauge safety power cord(s) are
provided with this unit (dependent on the model) and MUST be used with this unit to
ensure grounding protection. Turn off all controls before unplugging. Make sure the on/
off switch is in the off position. This is not a toy. Close attention is necessary when used

12.0 Machine Schematic Drawing – Heated Unit
Reduce the Risk of Fire, Electric Shock or Injury.
• DO NOT leave the carpet extractor when plugged in. Unplug it from the outlet when
not in use and before servicing.
• DO NOT use this carpet extractor with a damaged cord or plug. If the equipment is
not working as it should because it has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, etc.,
contact an authorized service center.
• DO NOT unplug the carpet extractor by pulling the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug,
not the cord. DO NOT pull the unit by the cord, use the cord as a handle, close a door
on the cord, or pull the cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep the cord away from
heated surfaces. Lift using only the appropriate handles.
• DO NOT overstretch the safety power cord between the equipment and the electrical
outlet in the wall.
• DO NOT tie an extension cord to the pigtail cord. This will damage the cord and will
VOID your warranty.
• DO NOT handle the plug of the vacuum with wet hands.
• DO NOT move the machine up or down stairs with fluid in the machine.
• DO NOT pick up anything that is burning or smoking such as cigarettes, matches or

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 Carpet Extractor
Treat your machine as you would any other high grade, precision made product.
Dropping, unreasonable bumping across thresholds and other misuses may result in a
damaged unit which will not be covered under warranty.
After each use, wipe the extractor body, accessories and power cord with a slightly
damp cloth. When not in use, the remove the power cord and hoses. Stored in a dry
area.
4.0 Set-Up and Operation
DO NOT USE ON WET SURFACES. DO NOT EXPOSE TO RAIN. STORE
INDOORS.
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 recovery tank with warm water (less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Fill to
approximately 4 inches from the top. Pre-spray a liquid detergent made for carpet
cleaning or upholstery on carpet and agitate carpet. Next, use clean water from
solution tank to extract – this procedure is highly recommended. Note: read and mix
your pre-spray solution 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.
• DO NOT use powdered detergents in this machine – will VOID warranty.

The machines comes with (1) or (2) 25-foot, 12/3-gauge safety power cord(s).
• Locate the pigtail on the back of the machine’s base.
• Plug the lighted end of the power cord into the pigtail.
• Plug the cord into a 20 AMP grounded wall outlet.
20 AMP circuits are normally found in kitchens and bathrooms. Never remove the 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.
4.2
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 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
motor. The float assembly will cut-off vacuum to the waste tank. The motor will also
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 motor 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 debris from entering the stand pipe. Refer to the
“Maintenance” section for removal and proper cleaning. It is also necessary to use low
foaming chemicals or a defoamer to eliminate foam build-up in the recovery tank and
damage to the vacuum motors.
If moisture enters 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.
4.3

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 equipment without the float assembly or with a poorly maintained
assembly, will greatly decrease the life of the vacuum motor and will VOID your
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 water will be sucked in the
vacuum 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.
Vacuum Shut-Off Assembly
This screen should be cleaned daily, especially if the carpet 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.
5.2
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.
CAUTION: before proceeding with this procedure, make sure both the power cords are
disconnected.
• To examine the filter, open the solution tank lid on the front of the machine. The filter
is in the bottom of the solution tank.

The dump valve, located on the back of the machine, has a track inside of it. Open the
dump valve and check the track for build-up. This build-up could prevent the dump valve
from closing and cause leaking. Use a toothbrush to clean the track of the dump valve.
Should moisture ever enter the vacuum motors, completely drain the recovery tank, open
the recovery tank lid, remove the vacuum float assembly, turn on the vacuum motor and
spray a burst of WD-40 into the standpipe. Continue to run the vacuum motor 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.
5.6
Prevent Mineral Deposit Build-Up
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.

7.0 Storing your Carpet Extractor
Store your carpet extractor in temperatures over 40 degrees Fahrenheit. To prevent
moisture from damaging the vacuum motor during storage, empty the recovery tank and
store with the lid open. Store in an upright position in a dry area
If you plan on storing your extractor in freezing conditions or for a long period of time,
you must winterize your carpet extractor to protect the pump from freezing also damage
being caused to fittings and valves. Damage due to freezing is NOT covered under
the warranty. 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 RV Water System
Antifreeze. Mix well and pour into the solution tank.
• Connect the solution hose to the front of the machine.
• Use the wand to spray the mixture into a bucket.
• Disconnect the power cords from the outlets and
from the machine.
Figure 2
• Remove the float assembly from the recovery
tank and clean filter as needed. Replace float
assembly and tank lid (Figure 2).
• Vacuum the excess mixture out of the solution tank and into the recovery tank.
Dispose of the antifreeze properly.
To return to service, flush the pressure system by repeating the above steps, using
fresh water in place of antifreeze.
• Drain any remaining water from the recovery
tank and dispose of in a sanitary drain.
CAUTION: use separate buckets to drain and
fill the tank. Even the smallest debris can cause
issues (Figure 3)
• Disconnect and roll-up all hoses and tools. Store
machine and accessories in a dry space.
