
Do not allow children or any person unfamiliar with these
instructions to use the appliance.
Do not allow children or animals to come near the work
area or to touch the appliance or power supply cord.
Close supervision is necessary when the appliance is
used near children.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge,
unless they have been given supervision or instruction
concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible
for their safety.
Children must be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
After use


Inspection and repairs







Before use, check the appliance for damaged or defective
parts. Check for breakage of parts, damage to switches
and any other conditions that may affect its operation.
Do not use the appliance if any part is damaged or defective.
Have any damaged or defective parts repaired or replaced
by an authorised repair agent.
Before use, check the power supply cord for signs of
damage, ageing and wear.
Do not use the appliance if the power supply cord or
mains plug is damaged or defective.
If the power supply cord or mains plug is damaged or
defective it must be repaired by an authorised repair agent
in order to avoid a hazard. Do not cut the power supply
cord and do not attempt to repair it yourself.
Never attempt to remove or replace any parts other than
those specified in this manual.
Electrical safety

This tool is double insulated; therefore no earth wire
is required. Always check that the power supply
corresponds to the voltage on the rating plate.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or an authorised Black & Decker Service
Centre in order to avoid a hazard.
Voltage drops (VO1700/VO1700A/VO1710)


Inrush currents cause short-time voltage drops. Under
unfavourable power supply conditions, other equipment
may be affected. For example, artificial lighting will show
a temporary drop in magnitude when the machine is
switched on.
If the system impedance of the power supply is lower than
0.45 Ω, disturbances are unlikely to occur.
