INSTRUCTIONS
DE MISE À LA
TERRE
Cet appareil doit avoir une mise à la terre.
Si une défectuosité ou autre survenait, la
mise à la terre offre une voie de moindre
résistance au courant électrique, d'où un
risque moins élevé d électrocution. Cet
appareil est équipé d' un cordon électricque
ayant un conducteur et une fiche de mise à
la terre. Cette fiche doit être branchée dans
une prise appropriée qui a été installée et
mise à la terre convenablement en accord
avec le code électrique de votre région

VACUFLO® Built - In Central Vacuum Systems
VACUFLO® True Cyclonic
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS MODELS: 760/960 & 780/980
General Information
Do Not Store Objects on top of the
power unit. This will block the motor
cooling ventilation. Restricting the
cooling airflow may shorten the
motor life.
The central vacuum is designed to
vacuum ordinary household dirt and
dust. The system is designed for dry
pickup. A Wetvac accessory is needed
if the system will be used for liquid
pickup.
The central vacuum system is a
network of inlet valves, 2” PVC tubing,
and low voltage wiring installed in the
walls of your home. To operate the
system, simply plug the hose into an
inlet valve, attach the cleaning tool to
the curved hose end and begin vacuuming. The dirt is transported through
the in-wall tube system back to the dirt
canister (located on the power unit).
Caution: Do not allow the motor
to remain turned on, unless a hose is
connected or an inlet valve is open. If
air is not permitted to pass through the
fan blades, damage may occur to the
motor.
Operating Instructions
Using the Central Vacuum System is
easy. Simply raise the inlet valve lid,
insert the hose end and attach the
desired cleaning tool to the hose wand.
The Power Unit is activated when the
hose is inserted into the valve.
General Power Unit
Maintenance
The simple care and maintenance
instructions included here will help
ensure trouble-free use of the central
vacuum system.
• Do not place objects on top of the
power unit. The motor could
overheat.
• Do not allow the motor to remain
“on” unless a hose is connected or
an inlet valve is open. If airflow is
not permitted to flow through fan
blades, motor damage may occur.
• Empty the dirt canister when it is
3/4 full.
• Remember to clean the motor guard
screen each time the dirt receptacle
is emptied. (refer to Cleaning Guard
Screen instructions).
• The power unit does not require
any lubrication.
• The exterior of the power unit can
be wiped with a clean, dry cloth.
Do not use liquid cleaners or water
as an electrical shock may occur.
• For additional service contact a
qualified service person.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM SYSTEM
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or injury:
• Unplug and disconnect power before
servicing.
• Do not use on wet surfaces.
• 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 appliance is not working as it should,
has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water, return
it to a service center.
• 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 appliance over
cord. Keep cord away from heated
surfaces.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To
unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Do not handle system or appliance with
wet hands.
3) Dispose of the dirt and debris
captured in the dirt canister.
4) Raise the dirt canister to the proper
location under the power unit and
engage the latches.
5) Be certain the dirt canister is
“seated” properly to the gasket on
the body of the power unit.
Guard
Screen
• Do not put any object into openings.
Do not use with any opening blocked.
Keep openings free of dust, lint, hair,
and anything that may reduce air flow.
• 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 ashes.
• Connect to a properly grounded outlet.
See grounding instructions.
• Turn off all controls before
unplugging.
• Use extra care when cleaning
on stairs.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or
combustible liquids such as gasoline or
use in areas where they may be present.
• Do not place or store anything on
top of power unit - overheating of
motor could occur.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
INTENDED FOR HOUSEHOLD AND LIGHT COMMERCIAL USE.
Do not vent into a wall, a ceiling, or concealed
space of a building or structure.
Connect to a properly grounded outlet only.
Troubleshooting the
system
ILLUS. #1
Emptying the Dirt
Canister & Cleaning
the Guard Screen
The dirt canister – where the vacuumed dirt is deposited – is the removable lower portion of the power unit.
The canister needs to be removed and
emptied when it is 3/4 full. The Motor
Guard Screen should be cleaned each
time you empty the dirt canister.
The motor guard screen is located
directly above the dirt canister inside
the power unit. The guard screen is
not removable, it is designed to
prevent lightweight fibers from entering the motor impeller blades. A
buildup of material on the guard
screen may result in a loss of vacuum.
Follow these steps to empty
the dirt canister
(refer to illustration #1)
Make sure the Power Unit is OFF.
1) Disengage the canister latches
located on opposite sides of the
power unit.
2) Remove the dirt canister.
3) Dispose of canister contents in trash
receptacle.
4) Clean the guard screen.

Dirt Receptacle
ILLUS. #2
5) Raise the empty dirt canister to the
proper location under the power
unit and engage the latches.
6) Be certain the dirt canister is
“seated” properly to the gasket on
the body of the power unit.
Follow these steps to Clean the
Guard Screen
(refer to Illustration #2)
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a 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 a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
• If the circuit protector continues to
trip off after a short period of time,
the motor brushes may be worn out.
Call a qualified service person for
service.
• Tube lines may be obstructed – First
check the 90 degree elbow located
directly behind the inlet valves, if an
obstruction occurs it will usually not
make it past this elbow. If the
obstruction is not visible at the
elbow, attempt to purge the tubing at
each inlet valve. To do this, connect
the hose and use your hand to stop
airflow at the end of the hose for a
couple seconds, let airflow resume.
Repeat if necessary.
• If necessary call a qualified service
person to perform required maintenance.
Obtaining Service Under Warranty:
To obtain repair on warranted parts
contact the seller of the system with
the power unit serial number.
• The dirt receptacle and motor guard
screan may need cleaned – follow
instructions in this guide.
• The hose may be clogged – To
check if there is an obstruction,
unplug the hose and insert an
object that is smaller then the
diameter of the hose (A butter knife
works well). Pass the object completely through the hose, if it stops
that will indicate where the obstruc-

Make sure the Power Unit is OFF.
1) Unlatch and remove the Dirt
Canister. (Hold or place the canister
under the power unit to catch the
debris removed from the guard
screen.)
2) Using a long handled brush, insert
the brush through the bottom of the
dirt cone reaching to the guard
screen. Gently “sweep” the screen
to remove the debris.
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.
