Adjusting the detergent (on models with this feature) Detergent flow is adjusted using the regulator (F). Adjusting the detergent pressure Set the adjustable nozzle (E) on " " to deliver detergent at the correct pressure (on models with this feature). Adjusting the pressure (on models with this feature) The regulator (G) is used to adjust the working pressure. The pressure is shown on the pressure gauge (where fitted). 7 INFORMATION ON USE OF THE APPLIANCE (FIG.4) 7.1 7.5 Controls - Starter device (H). Set the starter switch on (ON/1) to: a) start the motor (in models without TSS device); b) set the motor ready to start (in models with TSS device). If there is a pilot light on the starter device, it should light up. If the “low/high” settings are available, use them as follows: Low : low pressure washing High : high pressure washing Set the starter device switch on (OFF/0) to shut down the appliance. If there is a pilot light on the starter device, it should go out. - Water jet control lever (I). 7.6 7.7 Caution - Danger! During operation the appliance must be positioned as shown in fig. 4 on a sturdy, stable surface. 7.2 Start-up 1) Turn on the water supply tap fully. 2) Release the safety catch (D). 3) Depress the gun trigger for a few seconds and start up the appliance using the starter device (ON/1). Caution - Danger! Before starting up the appliance check that the water supply hose is connected properly; use of the appliance without water will damage it; do not cover the ventilation grilles when the appliance is in use. TSS models - In TSS models with automatic delivery flow cut-off system: - when the gun trigger is released the dynamic pressure automatically cuts out the motor (see fig.4); - when the gun trigger is depressed the automatic drop in pressure starts the motor and the pressure is restored after a very slight delay; - if the TSS is to function correctly all gun releasing and depressing operations must be performed at intervals of less than 4-5 seconds. On three-phase models for professional use, at first use start the appliance for a very short time to check that the motor is running in the correct direction. If the motor fan is turning anti-clockwise, exchange two of the three phase wires (L1, L2, L3) in the electrical plug. To prevent damage to the appliance, do not allow it to operate dry and when running do not stop the water jet for more than 10 minutes at a time (for models without TSS device). 9 Stopping the appliance 1) Set the starter device switch on (OFF/0). 2) Depress the gun trigger and discharge the residual pressure inside the hoses. 3) Engage the gun safety catch (D). Restarting 1) Release the safety catch (D). 2) Depress the gun trigger and discharge the residual air inside the hoses. 3) Set the starter device on (ON/1). Storage 1) Switch the appliance off (OFF/0). 2) Remove the plug from the socket. 3) Turn off the water supply tap. 4) Discharge the residual pressure from the gun until all the water has come out of the nozzle. 5) Drain and wash out the detergent tank at the end of the working session. To wash out the tank, use clean water instead of the detergent. 6) Engage the gun safety catch (D). Refilling and using detergent When using detergent, the adjustable nozzle must be set on " " (on models with this feature). Use of a high pressure hose longer than the one originally supplied with the cleaner, or the use of an additional hose extension, may reduce or completely halt the intake of detergent. Fill the tank with highly degradable detergent. Recommended cleaning procedure Dissolve dirt by applying the detergent mixed with water to the surface while still dry. When dealing with vertical surfaces work from the bottom upwards. Leave the detergent to act for 1-2 minutes but do not allow the surface to dry. Starting from the bottom, use the high pressure jet at a minimum distance of 30 cm. Do not allow the rinse water to run onto unwashed surfaces. In some cases, scrubbing with brushes is needed to remove dirt. High pressure is not always the best solution for good washing results, since it may damage some surfaces. The finest adjustable nozzle jet setting or the rotating nozzle should not be used on delicate or painted parts, or on pressurised components (e.g tyres, inflation valves, etc.). Effective washing depends on both the pressure and volume of the water used, to the same degree. 8 MAINTENANCE (FIG.5) Any maintenance operations not covered by this chapter should be carried out by an Authorized Sales and Service Centre. Caution - Danger! Always disconnect the plug from the power socket before carrying out any work on the appliance. 8.1 8.2 8.3 8.4 Cleaning the nozzle 1) Disconnect the lance from the nozzle. 2) Remove any dirt deposits from the nozzle hole using the tool (C1). Cleaning the filter Inspect the intake filter (L) and detergent filter (if fitted) before each use, and clean in accordance with the instructions if necessary. Unjamming the motor (on models with this feature) In case of lengthy stoppages, limescale sediments may cause the motor to seize. To unjam the motor, turn the drive shaft with a tool (M). End-of-season storage Treat the appliance with non-corrosive, non-toxic antifreeze before storing it away for winter. Put the appliance in a dry place, protected from frost.
