Operating Instructions
Preparing the Carpet for Cleaning:
Carpet should be thoroughly vacuumed and obstacles
relocated before beginning the cleaning cycle. Heavy traffic
lane areas should be pre-treated or spotted with Minuteman
Pre-Treat order #902183 for best results.
To Begin Cleaning:
1. Always work away from the cord.
2. Machine operates by pulling backwards over carpet.
3. The recovery dome lid (pg 10, item B) should be properly
seated on Recovery Tank (item C) for proper vacuum
recovery.
4. Control Panel Switch Identifications:
Normal Cleaning Mode
1. Turn on vacuum switch (Fig 1/C).
2. Turn on brush switch (Fig 1/B).
3. Turn on the solution pump (Fig 1/D) to position ‘I’.
4. Adjust brush pressure at rear of machine, until brush
pressure gauge reads in green zone.
5. Solution pump should be turned off by either using
the momentary bail (Fig 1/A), or flip the switch (Fig
1/D) spray jet to the center position ‘O”; 6” before the
end of each cleaning pass.
During the cleaning cycle, care should be taken not to allow
foam to build up in the recovery tank. If this should happen,
the machine should be turned off. Defoamer order #910543
28
should be added to the recovery tank only, never into the
solution tank. Foam should not be seen inside the right side
of the dome lid.
Confirm that the CFS unit is working correctly by observing
the power indicator light. The recovery water level can be
viewed from the operator’s position of the machine through
the left side of the visible recovery dome. The X17 CFS has
a float ball shut off located in the recovery tank that cuts
off suction to the vacuum hose. When the recovery tank
is full, the vacuum motor will become noticably louder and
the machine will not pick up water. Recovery tank must be
emptied. (NOTE : Never tilt machine completely back with
recovery tank in place. Always remove tank and set to the
side before tilting complete machine.) To empty the recovery
tank use the recovery tank dump hose (pg 11, item D).
Unclip the hose from the tank and turn the cap a quarter turn
counter-clockwise and dump waste water into a floor drain or
utility sink.
