HEAT PROTECTION SYSTEM
This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the motor from overheating. If the
vacuum cleaner suddenly shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug the cleaner. Check the
vacuum cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a full dirt compartment or
clogged filters. If these conditions are found, empty the dirt compartment and clean the filters
(see pages 10 and 11) or replace if necessary (see page 15). To maintain the best
performance of your vacuum cleaner, we recommend emptying the dirt compartment before
the dirt reaches the “Max Fill Line” and clean the filters.
