IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
This machine must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical shock.
This machine is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug.
The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Do not remove the ground pin; if missing, replace the plug before use.
Improper installation of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Be sure to check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.
If the plug will not fit in the outlet do not modify the plug or the machine’s cord, instead have a proper outlet installed by a qualified technician.
This machine is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and with a grounding plug similar to the one in Figure 1 below.
If a proper outlet is not available, follow the illustrations in Figures 2 & 3 to install a temporary-grounding plug. This temporary workaround should be used only until a proper outlet (Figure 1) can be installed by a qualified electrician.
When and if this type of adapter is employed, screw the adapter’s extended tab into place with a metal screw. However, grounding adapters are not approved for use in Canada.
Again, be sure to check the grounding pin for damages and replace it if necessary.
The Green, or Green-Yellow, wire in the cord is the grounding wire. When replacing a plug, this wire must be attached to only the grounding pin.
DO NOT use extension cords.
Please Note for American use only.
Parts and Service
Please contact Mytee service personnel or a Mytee authorized Service Center using Mytee’s original replacement parts and accessories if repairs need to be performed.

Unpacking the Machine
When your new machine is delivered, please carefully inspect both the shipping carton and the machine for damages.

Powering the Flood Hog™
Connecting Vacuum Hose
The vacuum hose can be connected to the Cuff-Lynx™ connection on the front of the lid on top of the machine.
Connecting Pump-Out Hose
Attach the pump-out hose to the Auto Pump-out fitting.
Secure the hose to the fitting using the cam lock. Push the hose cuff onto the fitting, making sure the silver ears and rings are extended forward. Pull the ears down using the rings until the connection is tight. Place the end of the hose in a location where dirty water can drain.
Switching On the Flood Hog™
Switch on the vacuums using the two vacuum switches.
Switch on the pump-out using the pump-out switch.
In shallow or light flooding situations, a flood wand can be used (included in the A138 Accessory Kit) for flood extraction. For heavier flooding situations, a stand-on flood extraction tool can be used or just a vacuum hose (included in the A138 Accessory Kit).
Emptying the Recovery Tank
The recovery tank can be emptied using the pump-out feature or via the tank drain valve on the front of the machine.

Also, keep all wheels lubricated and check for leaks or loose hardware.
The A138 Flood Hog™ Accessory Kit Contains:
|The vacuum is not turning on.|
|The vacuum may not be getting power.||Check the electrical connections and the switch.
Look for loose or damaged wires. To check the switch: Unbolt the switch plate. Take a picture of the layout of the wires or tag the wires for future reference. Switch the wires from the vacuum switch with the wires from the ump-out switch. Turn on the pump-out switch. If the vacuum turns on, then you know the vacuum switch
|The vacuum is not producing suction.|
|The recovery tank is full.||Empty the recovery tank.|
|If the vacuum exhausts but there is no suction, then the hose from the recovery tank to the vacuum motor is disconnected.||Open the machine and find the hose running from the recovery tank to the vacuum motor. Check if
it is disconnected. If so, reconnect it. If it has a leak, replace the hose (Part # PH627 if 1.5″, PH628 if 2″).
|Vacuum hose blockage (if there is no suction or exhaust).||Check for blockage in the hose, starting from the cleaning tool to the machine.|
|Clogged filter in a vacuum tank.||Clean out the filter regularly.|
|Hose cuffs are loose and cause air leakage.||Tighten all hose cuffs regularly as may loosen over time. Use glue to prevent cuffs from coming loose (optional).|
|The lid on the tank is loose and is causing air leakage.||Make sure the lid is tight.|
|Foam building up in the recovery tank.||Use Mytee’s Auto Defoamer Kit (Part # A688).|
|The boot behind the vacuum port is turned the wrong way.||Make sure this plastic boot is turned toward the right wall of the machine and not toward the ball float.|
|There is a loud grinding noise coming from the vacuum.|
|Debris has been sucked into the vacuum motor chamber. Usually results from dry vacuuming.||Replace the vacuum motor.
To avoid repeat problems, DO NOT dry vacuum with your extractor.
|No water flow from pump-out.|
|The filter is clogged.||Clean the filter.|
|Kinked hose inside the machine.||Open the machine and check the hoses. If any hoses are kinked, undo the kink.|
