IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

PLEASE READ AND SAVE!

WARNING!

Follow these basic precautions when using your Carpet Spot

Extractor:

1. Do not operate this unit if any part of the unit appears damaged.

2. Do not operate if ground plug is broken.

3. Do not operate if the unit is in standing water.

4. Do not use volatile substances or operate when volatile substances exist.

5. Do not service while unit is running or connected to electricity. Unplug the unit!

6. Do not use water more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

7. Do not use solvents with this unit.

8. Do not use as a dry vacuum.

9. Do not use unit unless completely assembled.

10. Use only liquid detergents. Powders do not fully dissolve and damage motor.

11. Always use defoamer. Foam will suspend moisture particles that damage motor.

PREPARE UNIT FOR USE

1. All extractors—no matter what the time of year—are shipped with antifreeze in the pump and solution lines.

Prior to first use, fill the tank with one quart of warm water. Attached the hoses and using the hand tool, flush out the system by spraying the one quart of water through the

pump.

2. Attach the 1-1/2 inch vacuum hose and the brass quick disconnect.

3. Fill the base unit (the recovery tank must be removed) with warm water (less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit). Fill to approximately 4 inches from the top. Use a liquid detergent made for carpet cleaning or upholstery. Read and mix to the dilution ratios as directed.

PREPARE UNIT FOR USE – CONTINUED

Vacuum Shut-Off

The Carpet Spot Extractor is designed with a vacuum restrictor to reduce the vacuum when the recovery tank is full. When the vacuum is restricted, the liquid will not travel up the nozzle of the hand tool. The motor speeds up (the sound of the motor will change) and this is your warning to dispose of recovered solution.

The restrictor is a foam float that slides up and down the vacuum tube in the recovery tank as shown in the photo on the right.

Following Each Use

Remove the vacuum hose from the upper body, unclip, rotate latch on the back of the unit and remove the upper section of the spotter. Dispose of the used solution by pouring the solution out of the vacuum inlet (not the hatch cover) into the toilet or janitor’s closet sink.

PROBLEM SOLVING

Extractor will not run:

1. Check power connection. Move the grounded plug to an outlet that is working. Verify that the plug is working by plugging it into another electrical component, such as a lamp, hair dryer or drill.

2. Inspect the power cord for damage and replace if damage is found.

Loss of vacuum:

1.

Make sure the float is at the bottom of the unit. Open the screw cap and push the float down.

2. Check that the hose cuff is securely attached to the front of the spotter.

Loss of solution pressure:

1. Verify that the pump is on.

2. Remove jet from end of hand tool and press trigger on wand.

3. Clean the solution intake in the solution tank.

4. Check the quick-disconnect for debris.

5. If the pump is still not working, contact your dealer.
