TROUBLESHOOTING
OPEN CIRCUIT
The circuit breakers (20) and (21) determines the open circuit. This system prevents the main motor and broom motor circuits
from being damaged in case of overload.
In case of open circuit, possible causes are:
Main motor (for main broom): The circuit breaker (21) determines the open circuit. Possible causes:
1. There are bulky debris or cords around the broom or between the broom and its flange (remove the debris).
2. The broom pressure on the ground is excessive (check the broom height).
3. The main motor electrical input is too high (check the electrical input).
Wait at least 2 minutes after the open circuit. After repairing, press the circuit breaker button (21).
Side broom motor: The circuit breaker (20) determines the open circuit. Possible causes:
1. There are bulky debris or cords around the broom or between the broom and its flange (remove the debris).
2. The broom pressure on the ground is excessive (check the broom height).
3. The side broom motor electrical input is too high (check the electrical input).
Wait at least 2 minutes after the open circuit. After repairing, press the circuit breaker button (20).
THE MAIN BROOM DOES NOT TURN
Possible causes:
1. The battery voltage is too low, the warning light (4) is on (charge the battery).
2. The main motor carbon brushes are worn (replace).
3. The motor is faulty (repair/replace).
4. The motor driving belts are inefficient or broken (replace).
5. The wiring harness is damaged (repair).
6. The relay is faulty (replace).
7. There is an open in the circuit breaker (reset).
8. The hopper microswitch does not work (adjust/replace).
9. The main switch is damaged (replace).
10. The battery charger-function control is faulty (replace).
THE SIDE BROOM DOES NOT TURN
Possible causes:
1. The battery voltage is too low, the warning light (4) is on (charge the battery).
2. The motor carbon brushes are worn (replace).
3. The motor is faulty (repair/replace).
4. The wiring harness is damaged (repair).

Drive the machine on a level ground.
Turn the main switch (1) to “0”.
Remove the hopper (9).
Unscrew the knobs (A).
Grasp the dust filter (B) as shown in the figure.
Remove the dust filter by turning it in the direction shown by the arrow (C) to disengage it from the pins (D), then lower the
filter to disengage it from the filter shaker combs (E).
7. Remove the filter (F) from the frame (G) by disengaging the rubber bands (C).
8. In an appropriate outdoor area, clean the filter by shaking it on a level and clean surface, tapping the side (I) opposite to
the gasket (J).
Complete the cleaning procedure by using compressed air (K) at maximum 87 psi (6 Bars), blowing only from the side of
the gasket (J), at a minimum distance of 12 in (30 cm).
Check the filter body for tears. If necessary, replace it.
For a better cleaning, it is allowed to wash the filter with water and non-lathering detergents. This provides better quality
cleaning but reduces the life of the filter, which will have to be replaced more frequently. The use of inadequate detergents
can damage the filter.
9. Clean the bearing surface of the filter rubber gasket (J) and check it for integrity and sealing capabilities. If necessary,
replace the filter.
10. Clean the bearing surface of the hopper gasket (L) and check it for integrity and sealing capabilities. If necessary, replace
it.

OPEN CIRCUIT
The circuit breaker (21) determines the open circuit. This system prevents the main motor from being damaged in case of
breakdown.
In case of open circuit, possible causes are:
1. There are bulky debris or cords around the wheel hubs (remove the debris).
2. The floor gradient is excessive (change direction).
3. The main motor electrical input is too high (check the electrical input).
Wait at least 2 minutes after the open circuit. After repairing, press the circuit breaker button (21).
THE MACHINE DOES NOT MOVE
Possible causes:
1. The drive system control cable is misadjusted or broken (adjust/replace).
2. The driving belt is misadjusted or broken (adjust/replace).
