baseboards or next to furniture to help remove dirt
trapped at carpet edges.
Overload Protector
The EG1400 has built-in protection against motor and
belt damage should the agitator jam. If the agitator
slows down or stops, the overload protector shuts off
the EG1400. The power unit will continue to run. To
correct the problem, turn off the power unit, remove
obstruction, the press Overload Protector Reset
button.

The suction control allows you to change the vacuum
suction for different fabric and carpet weights.
Opening the control decreases suction for draperies
and lightweight rugs, while closing the control
increases suction for upholsteries and carpets.
