Important Safety Information

Grounding Instructions

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 plug before use.

Mytee 8070 Lite Heated Carpet Extractor User Manual  & troubleshooting 3
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 either 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 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.

Operating the Mytee Lite™

Mytee 8070 Lite Heated Carpet Extractor User Manual  & troubleshooting 17

Switching On The Unit
In order to avoid vapor locking the unit, use the following procedure to switch on the components:

  1. Turn the pump switch on.
  2. Pull the lever on the cleaning tool to release air in the line. Hold the lever until a steady flow of water comes out of the wand.
  3. Once the pump is primed and there is pressure in the solution line, turn on the heater switch and wait a few minutes for the water to heat up.
  4. Once water is heated, turn on the vacuum and begin cleaning.

Note: When cleaning upholstery, always check the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions.

Mytee 8070 Lite Heated Carpet Extractor User Manual  & troubleshooting 18Use only low foam or nonfoaming detergent or shampoo. Damage due to excessive foam will void the warranty.

Mytee 8070 Lite Heated Carpet Extractor User Manual  & troubleshooting 19Empty the vacuum tank any time you refill the solution tank in order to prevent vacuum tank overfilling.

Cleaning Procedure

For best results when extracting, do one wet pass followed by two dry passes. This ensures you’re not over-soaking the material and keeps the water temperature higher.
The solution pump will only turn on when there is a pressure demand (e.g., while spraying with a cleaning tool, or right at startup). If the pump is continuously running or pulsing,  it does not necessarily mean that it is defective.
 If the pump is not producing the correct pressure and flow, see the Troubleshooting section of this manual.♦

Emptying the Solution & Recovery Tanks

Mytee 8070 Lite Heated Carpet Extractor User Manual  & troubleshooting 20

The solution tank drain is located on the front, lower-left corner of the solution tank.

The recovery tank drain is located on the back of the machine at the bottom of the recovery tank. Attach the included recovery tank drain hose in order to easily empty it into a  bucket or other receptacle.♦

Machine Maintenance

In order to keep the Mytee Lite™ running smoothly and reduce the risk of damage to the machine and subsequent downtime, Mytee recommends following the maintenance schedule below:

Maintenance Item Daily Weekly
Clean and inspect tanks. X
Clean and inspect hoses. X
Check and clean internal filters. X
Check the power supply cable. X
Clean machine with all-purpose cleaner and cloth. X
Check spray nozzles. X
Flush solution system with Mytee System Maintainer. X
Inspect vacuum hoses for holes and loose cuffs. X
Inspect spray pattern for clogging. If clogged, remove spray tips and soak them in a recommended liquid neutralizer for up to six hours. To remove the spray tip, twist the spray tip body counter-clockwise. X
Lubricate wheels with water-resistant oil. X
Inspect the machine for water leaks and loose hardware. X

Filter Maintenance

The Mytee Lite™ has a small filter on the top of the vacuum stack in the recovery tank. This filter should be checked and cleaned after each use.♦

System Maintainer

Regular flushing of the solution system with Mytee System Maintainer keeps your extractor running efficiently by removing hard water scaling that builds up in the system.

How to use System Maintainer:

  1. Thoroughly mix System Maintainer with warm water at a  1:1 ratio in a separate container. Pour into your Extractor’s solution tank.
  2. Connect a cleaning tool (upholstery tool, wand, etc.) and remove the jet(s) in order to prevent clogging from dislodged mineral build-up.
  3. Turn on the Extractor’s pump and run the System Maintainer solution through the system and into a bucket or receptacle until you have a solid stream.
  4. Let sit for about 5 minutes while the System Maintainer solution does its job inside your Extractor.
  5. Finish running the rest of the solution through the system.
  6. Run clean water through the system to flush out any remaining System Maintainers. ♦

Troubleshooting

Issue Possible Cause Solution
The machine is not turning on. The power cord is unplugged. Plug the power cord into a grounded 20 amp outlet.
The circuit breaker tripped in the building. Reset breaker in the building.
Faulty switch or power cord. Contact a Mytee Service Center.
Poor solution flow. The jet is clogged. Unclog the jet by removing and soaking in a vinegar and water solution. Scrub with a soft brush.
Repeat if necessary.
Blockage or clog in solution line. Run System Maintainer through the machine.
The pump continuously runs/ pulses without producing correct pressure/ flow. Leak in solution line between pump and cleaning
tool.
Find a leak and repair or replace the hose if necessary.
Pump switch failure. This can be caused by
various issues:
• Nozzle tip clogged or too small, causing rapid switch cycling.
• Check valve failure between pump and heater causing hot water to return to the pump and damage switch.
•  Pump inlet port is cracked causing the pump to suck in air.
• Damaged pump switch housing.
Contact a Mytee Service Center.
Water is not pumping out of the machine. Vapor lock from turning on heater before the pump. Turn off the heater and allow the machine to cool completely. After the machine has cooled, follow the machine startup procedure in section 2.4 of this manual.
Vacuum/pump/ heater not turning on. Bad power switch. Check the power switch by transferring wires from the switch in question to another switch. See if that switch turns on the component in question. Replace switch if necessary.
Vacuum not producing suction. The vacuum tank is full. Empty vacuum tank.
Vacuum hose blockage. Check for blockages in vacuum hoses inside and outside the machine.
Blows water out of the exhaust. Foam building up inside vacuum tank. Use a defoaming solution in a vacuum tank or use low foam or nonfoaming detergent/shampoo.
The water is not getting hot. Automatic (black) sensor failure causes the manual (white) sensors to trip. Reset the manual (white) sensor by pressing the small button on it. If the manual sensor continues to trip, replace the automatic (black) sensor (part no. E573).
