IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed,
including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury.
• Use indoors only.
• 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, use cord as a handle, 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.
• Connect to a properly grounded outlet only (refer to Grounding Instructions).
• 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.
• 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. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts
of body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or
hot fireplace or barbeque ashes. Live sparks or embers could start a fire in waste
material inside the tank.
• Do not use without ball float and cage in place.
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
• If the machine tips over during use, shut it off immediately, set it upright, and wait for
the motor to stop completely. This allows the ball float to return to normal position
and permits proper airflow through the cleaner.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in
areas where they may be present.
• Store your cleaner indoors and in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Do not use any cleaner marked flammable or combustible.

CONSEILS DE SÉCURITÉ IMPORTANTS
L’utilisation d’un appareil électrique sous-entend l’observation de certaines règles de
sécurité élémentaires:
LIRE TOUTES LES INSTRUCTIONS AVANT D’UTILISER L’ASPIRATEUR.
AVERTISSEMENT
Pour réduire les risques de feu, de secousse électrique ou de blessure:
• Ne laisser pas sous la pluie. Ranger à l’intérieur.
• Ne pas s’absenter tant que l’aspirateur est branché. Éteindre l’appareil et le
débrancher lorsqu’on ne s’en sert plus et avant son entretien.
• Veiller à ce que l’aspirateur ne serve pas de jouet, particulièrement si l’usager est un
enfant ou si l’on s’en sert près d’un enfant.
• Ne s’en servir que selon la description qu’en donne le guide. N’employer que les
accessoires que recommande le fabricant.
• Ne pas s’en servir si le cordon ou la fiche sont abîmés. Avant de se servir de
l’aspirateur, le retourner à un centre de réparation s’il ne fonctionne pas comme il
faut, s’il est tombé ou abîmé, si on l’a laissé dehors ou laissé tomber dans l’eau.
• Ne pas le tirer ou le transporter par le cordon, ne pas se servir du cordon comme
d’une poignée, ne pas coincer le cordon en fermant une porte et ne pas tirer le
cordon sur des encoignures ou des bordures pointues. Ne pas passer l’aspirateur
sur le cordon. Éloigner le cordon des surfaces chauffées.
• Branchez toujours l’aspirateur dans une prise à trois (mise à la terre).
• Ne pas se servir de cordons de rallonge ou de prises d’intensité admissible mal
adaptée aux besoins.
• Éteindre complètement l’aspirateur avant de le débrancher.
• Ne pas tirer sur le cordon pour débrancher l’aspirateur. Le débrancher en tirant sur
la fiche et non sur le cordon.
• Ne toucher ni à la fiche ni à l’aspirateur avec les mains mouillées.
• Ne pas introduire d’objets dans les orifices. Ne pas se servir de l’aspirateur avec une
ouverture bouchée et en écarter poussière, charpie, cheveux et autres qui risquent
de réduire la circulation de l’air.
• L’aspirateur créé une aspiration. Cheveux, vêtements amples, doigts et d’une manière
générale tous les membres du corps doivent se trouver à l’écart des pièces mobiles
et des ouvertures.
• Ne rien ramasser de brûlant ou de fumant, comme par exemple mégots, allumettes
ou cendres chaudes des cheminées ou des grilles. Des étincelles ou des braises
peuvent commencer un feu dans les dégâts au dedans du réservoir.
• Ne pas s’en servir sans le filtre du moteur ou que le filtre soit abîmé.
• Utiliser avec des lunettes protectrices ou éviter des bouffées d’air car des poussières
dans l’air peuvent abîmer les yeux.
• Redoubler de prudence lorsqu’on aspire les escaliers.
• Si l’aspirateur se renverse quand il est en usage, tout-de-suite il faut l’éteindre, mettrele à la position droite et attendre que le moteur s’arrête complètement. Cela permettra
que la flotteur retourne à sa position normale et laisse la normale circulation d’air
passée dans l’aspirateur.
• Ne pas s’en servir pour recueillir des liquides inflammables ou combustibles, tels
l’essence, et ne pas utiliser dans le endroits où ces produits risquent de se trouver.
• Ranger l’aspirateur à l’intérieur, au frais et au sec.
• Bien éclairer la surface de travail.
• Débrancher les appareils électriques avant de les aspirer.

Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock.
This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
DANGER
Improper connection of an equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to
whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the
appliance. If it will not fit the outlet, have proper outlet installed by a qualified technician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a grounding plug that
looks like the plug illustrated in Figure A. A temporary adapter which looks like the adapter
illustrated in Figure B may be used to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle, as
shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be
used only until a properly grounded outlet, Figure A, can be installed by a qualified
electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending from the adapter must
be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover.
Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian
Electrical Code.
INSTRUCTIONS VISANT LA MISE À TERRE
Cet appareil doit être mis à la terre. En cas défaillance ou de panne éventuelles, la mise
à la terre fournit au courant un chemin de moindre résistance qui réduit le risque de
choc électrique. Cet appareil est pourvu d’un cordon muni d’un conducteur de terre et
d’une fiche avec broche de terre. La fiche doit être branchée dans une prise appropriée
correctement installée et mise à la terre conformément aux règlements et ordonnances
municipaux.
AVERTISSEMENT
Un conducteur de terre mal raccordé peut entraîner un risque de choc électrique.
Consulter un électricien ou un technicien d’entretien qualifié si vous n’êtes pas certain
que la prise est correctement mise à la terre. Ne pas modifier la fiche fournie avec
l’appareil-si elle ne peut être insérée dans la prise, faire installer une prise adéquate par
un électricien qualifié.
Note. Au Canada, l’utilisation d’un adaptateur temporaire n’est pas autorisée par le
Code canadien de l’électricité.
Cet appareil est destiné à un circuit de 120V et est muni d’une fiche de mise à la terre
semblable à celle illustrée par le Figure A. S’assurer que l’appareil est branché à une
prise de courant ayant la même configuration que la fiche. Aucun adaptateur ne devrait
être utilisé avec cet appareil.

GENERAL INFORMATION
Automatic Suction Shut-Off
NOTE: Use the vacuum in the upright position. If the cleaner should tip, the
automatic suction shut-off turns off the suction.
The automatic suction shut-off functions when the tank is full of liquid. As the tank fills,
the ball float (inside the cage) rises until it seats itself against air inlet. This shuts off the
suction causing the motor sound to become higher in pitch. When this happens, empty
the tank.
The automatic suction shut-off also functions if the cleaner tips over. To continue use,
turn cleaner off and set it upright. Wait a few seconds to allow motor to come to a
complete stop so the ball drops. Restart the motor.
Use this vacuum for wet pickup only.

HOW TO USE (continued)
Begin Cleaning
With the cleaning nozzle you may begin cleaning. By pulling the trigger, you will dispense
the solution onto the desired area. Use a backstroke motion. Because the vacuum is
on, the fluid will quickly be sucked back into the wand. Make several dry passes over
the affected area to completely remove any excess moisture. You will notice that the
area you have just cleaned will be damp. This is normal.
Tips:
If used to clean up spills or messes, clean up as much of the spill or mess using paper
towels before final cleaning with the cleaner. If used on fine fabrics or upholstery, test
for color fastness in an inconspicuous place before cleaning.
Automatic Shut-Off
NOTE: Always use the wet vacuum cleaner in the upright position. If cleaner tips
over, the suction automatically shuts off.
If the cleaner tips over:
• Turn off the power switch and set the cleaner upright.
• Wait a few seconds for the motor to come to a complete stop.
• Restart the motor.
When the tank is full:
• As the tank fills with liquid, the ball float (inside the cage) rises until it seats itself
•
•
•
•
against the bottom of the motor.
The motor sound becomes a high pitch sound.
The shut-off stops the suction.
Turn off the power switch.
Empty the tank (instructions follow).
Empty Tank
CAUTION: Turn off the power switch and unplug electric cord to service.
• Lift the hose and drain any liquid back into the tank.
• Empty contents into a suitable drain by unscrewing the drain plug. (See page 7.)
• Use special care when emptying full tanks with liquids. Quick removal of the drain
plug can result in a sudden rush of liquid.
• Replace drain plug to continue cleaning.
Clean and Store
Note: Turn off the power switch and unplug electrical cord before cleaning tank.
• Empty tank of all liquid and thoroughly rinse inside before storing.
• Clean and dry tank and all accessories.
• Store indoors in a cool, dry area.
