TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY:
This vacuum cleaner is for domestic use only. Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
Do not use with damaged cable or plug. If the supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by Dyson Ltd, our
service agent or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard.
If the vacuum cleaner is not functioning properly, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or immersed in liquid,
do not use. Contact the Dyson Customer Care Helpline.
Do not use the vacuum cleaner if any parts appear to be faulty, missing or damaged.
Ensure all parts including the clear bin are securely attached before use or carrying the vacuum cleaner.
This vacuum cleaner 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 vacuum cleaner by a person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that
they do not play with the vacuum cleaner.
Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use, and before performing user
maintenance, connecting or disconnecting the hose or changing accessories.
Store the vacuum cleaner indoors. Do not use or store this vacuum cleaner below 0°C (32°F). Ensure that the
vacuum cleaner is at room temperature before operating. Put the vacuum cleaner away after use with the cable
stored safely, to prevent tripping hazards.
This machine is fitted with a thermal protection device. If any part of your machine becomes blocked it may cause
the device to operate and automatically stop the machine. If this happens, the machine must be switched off,
unplugged and allowed to cool down before attempting to check filters or for blockages. Ensure any blockage is
cleared before re-starting the machine.
Turn off all controls before unplugging.
Do not unplug by pulling on cable. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cable.
Do not pull or carry by cable, use cable as a handle, close a door on cable, or pull cable around sharp edges or
corners. Do not run vacuum cleaner over cable. Keep cable away from heated surfaces.
The use of an extension cable is not recommended.
Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts, such as the brush
bar.
Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything
that may reduce air flow. Switch off and unplug the vacuum cleaner before attempting to remove any blockage.
Take extra care when vacuuming on stairs; always work with the vacuum cleaner at the bottom of the stairs.
Keep the vacuum cleaner on the floor. Do not put the vacuum cleaner on chairs, tables etc.
Do not shake the vacuum cleaner or press the clear bin release button while carrying the vacuum cleaner.
Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids, such as petrol, or use in areas where they may be present.
Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
Check to ensure your electricity supply matches that shown on the rating plate. The vacuum cleaner must only be
used as rated.
Use only as described in this Dyson Operating Manual. Use only Dyson recommended attachments.
Do not use without the clear bin and filter in place.
Do not lubricate any parts, or carry out any maintenance or repair work other than that shown in this Dyson
Operating Manual, or as advised by the Dyson Customer Care Helpline.

USING YOUR DYSON VACUUM CLEANER
PLEASE NOTE:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Always extend the cable fully to the red tape before use.
Fine dust such as plaster or flour should only be vacuumed in very small
amounts.
Consult your flooring manufacturer’s recommended instructions before
vacuuming and caring for your flooring, rugs and carpets. Some carpets will
fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this is the case, we
recommend vacuuming in hard floors mode and consulting with your flooring
manufacturer.
If used in a garage, care should be taken to wipe the soleplate and wheels with
a dry cloth after vacuuming to clean off any sand, dirt, or pebbles which could
damage delicate floors.
When vacuuming, certain carpets may generate small static charges in the clear
bin. These are entirely harmless and not associated with the mains supply.
To minimise any effect from this, do not put your hand or insert any object into
the clear bin unless you have emptied it and rinsed it out with cold water.
Do not use the vacuum cleaner to pick up sharp objects, small toys, pins, paper
clips etc.
Only use parts recommended by Dyson; failure to do so could invalidate your
guarantee.
Looking for blockages
•
•
•
CAUTION:
Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug the vacuum cleaner before checking for blockages.
Beware of sharp objects when clearing blockages.
Refit all parts of the vacuum cleaner securely before using.
PLEASE NOTE:
•
•
Clearing blockages is not covered by your vacuum cleaner’s limited guarantee.
If any part of your vacuum cleaner becomes blocked, it may overheat and then
automatically shut off. Unplug the vacuum cleaner and leave to cool down.
Clear blockage before restarting.
Large items may block the tools or wand inlet, if this happens switch the vacuum
cleaner off and unplug the vacuum cleaner before removing the blockage. Do
not operate the wand release catch.
You can call the Dyson Customer Care Helpline or refer to www.dyson.co.uk/
support with advice on how to clear blockages.
Emptying the Clear bin
CAUTION:
•
Switch ‘OFF’ and unplug the vacuum cleaner before emptying the clear bin.
•
•
Do not use the vacuum cleaner without the clear bin in place.
To minimise dust/allergen contact when emptying, encase the clear bin tightly
in a plastic bag and empty. Remove the clear bin carefully and seal bag tightly,
dispose as normal. For a free fact sheet visit http://www.dyson.co.uk/allergy
Empty as soon as the dirt reaches the level of the MAX mark – do not overfill.
To remove the clear bin from the vacuum cleaner press the button at rear of
carrying handle. To release the dirt, press the button on the front of the clear
bin.

This machine has two filters, located as shown. It is important to check your
filters regularly and wash at least every month according to instructions, to
maintain performance. Filter B should be rinsed and tapped out until the water
runs clean, then tapped out again to ensure all excess water is removed. This
will normally require up to 10 rinse cycles.
Please leave to dry completely for 24 hours.
The filters may require more frequent washing if vacuuming fine dust.
Do not use detergents to clean the filters.
Do not put the filters in a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven,
microwave or near an open flame.
