Safety Precautions
This vacuum cleaner should be used for normal, dry household dust and dirt. The manufacturer
cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by use or operation of the vacuum contrary
to these instructions. If the vacuum is wrongly operated for a purpose other than that for which
it is intended, no liability can be accepted for any possible damage.
• Do not vacuum areas which contain moisture or water, flammable matter, needles, pins,
razor blades, matches, cigarettes, etc., since they may damage the vacuum or vacuum bag.
• When rewinding the power cord, hold the plug before pressing the cord rewind button to
prevent the cord from whipping.
• Make sure a vacuum bag and filters are always in place.
• This product is equipped with a polarized alternating current line plug (a plug having one
blade wider than the other). This plug fits into the power outlet only one way. This is a safety
feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the
plug should still fail to fit, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat
the safety purpose of the polarized plug.
