When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord
when not in use and before servicing.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer's recommended attachments.
• Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped,
damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord. Do not use cord as a handle. Do not close a door on cord or pull cord around
sharp edges or corners. Do not run vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Cord rewind models: Hold plug when rewinding into cord reel. Do not allow plug to whip when rewinding.
• Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
• 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 airflow.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers,
and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not place vacuum cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage. Use extra care
when cleaning stairs. Place vacuum cleaner on floor with the handle in storage position while using
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without dust cup, filter, screen and exhaust filter in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when
servicing the drive belt.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may
be present.

• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Unplug before connecting turbo nozzle.
• WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer,
birth defects or reproductive harm. WASH HANDS AFTER HANDLING
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the
other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not
change the plug in any way.
Do Not Oil the motor or the brush roll at any time. The bearings are permanently lubricated and sealed.
