Safety precautions
The Mondo Plus should only be used by adults for normal
vacuuming in a domestic environment. The vacuum cleaner
features double insulation and does not need to be earthed.
Never vacuum:
• In wet areas
• Close to flammable gas, etc.
• Without a dustbag (this may damage the cleaner). A safety
device is fitted which prevents the cover closing without a
dustbag in place. Do not attempt to force the cover shut.

Never vacuum:
• Sharp objects
• Fluids (this can cause serious damage to the machine)
• Hot or cold cinders, lit cigarette butts, etc.
• Fine dust from plaster, concrete, flour or ash, for example.
The above can cause serious damage to the motor - damage
which is not covered by the warranty.

• A damaged cable must be replaced by an authorised
Electrolux service engineer. Damage to the cleaner cable
will not be covered by the warranty.
• Never pull or lift the vacuum cleaner by the cable.

Before you start …check

Before connecting the cleaner

that voltage marked on the
data plate (on the underside of
cleaner) is correct for your
electrical supply. If is not, do
not use the cleaner but refer
back to your dealer.
Connecting to your electrical supply
Permanently connected to the cleaner is a mains supply (2-core) cable fitted with a non-rewirable plug incorporating a 13A fuse. In the event of the
fuse requiring replacement the fuse cover should be removed using a small
screwdriver. The old fuse MUST be replaced by a 13A ASTA approved
BS1362 fuse and the fuse cover mustbe replaced before the plus is used
again. In the event ofloss of the fuse cover, replacements can be obtained
from your Electrolux dealer or Electricity Board and must be of the same
colour as indicated by the coloured insert on the base plug.
If difficulty is experienced in obtaining a replacement, contact your nearest
Electrolux Service Centre. (Please see the separate Electrolux Service
Organisation leaflet).
In no circumstances must be plug be used without a correct
fuse cover fitted
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for your socket outlet, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted. Remove the fuse from
the cut off plug. The cutoff plug should then be disposed of to prevent hazard of shocks in case it should be plugged into a 13 Amp socket in another
part of your home.
As the colours of the wires in the mains cable of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which
marked with the letter N or coloured black. The wire which is coloured brown

If using a three-pin plug, do not make any connection to the terminal marked
with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured green or green-and-yellow. [This cleaner is double insulated and no earth-connection is necessary.]
It is in your interest to ensure that the plug is correctly attached to the mains
cable. In case of doubt, have it done by a qualified electrician, as Electrolux
cannot regard the repair of faults on the plug connection as a service that
can be given free of charge under the terms of guarantee.
As a general guide to fitting any plug
• Ensure the lengths of wire inside the plug are prepared correctly.
• Connection should be firmly made after all conductor stands are entered
into the terminal posts.
• When preparing the cable ends take care not to damage the outer seal, or
insulation surrounding the inner conductors.
• Tighten all screws.
• Replace the top cover of the plug and secure.

accordance with the following code:
