CONSEILS DE SÉCURITÉ
Lors de l’utilisation d’un appareil électrique, quelques précautions élémentaires doivent être observées, incluant les suivantes:
LISEZ TOUTES LES INSTRUCTIONS AVANT D’UTILISER VOTRE ASPIRATEUR.
AVERTISSEMENT
Pour réduire le risque de feu, de choc électrique, ou de blessure:
• Ne pas utiliser à l’extérieur ou sur des surfaces mouillées.
• Fermez le commutateur et débranchez l’appareil lorsque vous ne l’utilisez pas ou avant le nettoyage ou l’entretien.
• Ne permettez pas qu’il soit utilisé comme jouet. Une attention particulière est nécessaire lorsque utilisé par ou prés d’un
enfant.
• Suivez les recommandations d’utilisation de ce manuel. Utilisez uniquement les accessoires recommandés par le fabriquant.
• Ne pas utiliser si le cordon ou la fiche sont endommagés. Si l’aspirateur ne fonctionne pas comme il le devrait, s’il a été
échappé, s’il est endommagé, s’il a été laissé à l’extérieur ou échappé dans l’eau, retournez-le à un centre de service
avant d’utiliser.
• Ne pas le tirer ou le transporter par le cordon, ne pas utiliser le cordon en guise de poignée. Ne pas fermer une porte sur
le cordon ou tirer le cordon sur des coins ou bordures pointus. Ne pas circuler sur le cordon avec l’aspirateur. Tenir le
cordon à distance des surfaces chauffantes.
• Ne pas utiliser des rallonges ou des prises qui n’ont pas de capacité suffisante pour transporter le courant.

touché la poulie du courroie lorsque vous réparez la courroie.
• Portez une attention particulière lorsque vous nettoyez les escaliers.
• Ne pas utiliser pour ramasser des liquides inflammables ou combustibles comme de l’essence: Ne pas utiliser dans les
endroits où ces liquides pourraient être présents.
• Entreposez votre aspirateur à l’intérieur dans un endroit propre et sec.
• Maintenez un bon éclairage à l’endroit où vous travaillez.
• Débrancher les appareils électrique avant de les balayer.
CONSERVEZ CES INSTRUCTIONS

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit
in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in 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.
Afin de réduire le risque de choc électrique, cet appareil est muni d’une fiche polarisée (une des lames est plus large).
Cette fiche ne peut être insérée dans une prise polarisée que d’une seule façon. Si la fiche ne peut être insérée dans la prise,
retourner la fiche. Si la fiche ne peut toujours pas être insérée dans la prise, faire installer une prise adéquate par un
électricien qualifié. Ne pas modifier la fiche.

You will find your cord retainer on the handle above
the upper cord hook. Firmly push the electrical cord
down into the cord retainer before using the vacuum.
This will place the cord out of the way while you are
vacuuming. Remove cord from retainer when ready
to store vacuum or when using hose and
attachments.
9.
Next wind the cord around the two cord hooks on
the back of cleaner. The upper cord hook turns to
release the cord. Turn the hook up to store the cord.
10.
Secure the plug to the cord to prevent unwinding.
HOW TO USE
1. Cord Retainer. To use, push electrical cord down into cord retainer.
2. ON/OFF Switch. International symbol I means On, International symbol
O means Off.
3. Hose/Floor Selector. Turn to select hose for above floor cleaning or
floor for floor surface cleaning. If cleaning hard floor surface also adjust
the cleaner height setting to hard floor.
4. Cam Latch. To release clear tubes.
1
5
5. Dirt Alert Indicator (on some models). The dirt alert sensor uses infrared technology to indicate whether or not floors are clean. When debris
breaks the light beam, the red light comes on indicating additional
cleaning is needed in this area. If there is no break in the light beam,
the floor is clean and no light will come on.
6

2
When using your new vacuum you may be cleaning deep down dirt
missed by your old vacuum causing the light to stay red longer. With
frequent cleaning, after the first few times you use your Eureka vacuum,
the red light should go on less.
4
7
To check if the dirt alert sensor is working properly:
A. While the red light is on, tip the vacuum backwards on rear wheels,
lifting the brush roll off the carpet a couple of inches.
B. After a few seconds the red light should turn off.
6. Bag Change Indicator (on some models). Some models feature a
bag change indicator to remind you to change the bag. When it is time
to change the bag, the bag change indicator will illuminate.
Certain types of fine particles like powder, plaster dust, or fine road
dust can restrict airflow very quickly. The fine particles will decrease
performance even before the bag appears to be full. Change the dust
bag to restore maximum performance.
7. Bag Cover Latch. Pull up on latch to remove bag cover giving access
to the dust bag and motor filter. Push on latch to close cover.

9. Handle Release. Step on handle release. Pull handle back to a
comfortable position.
10. Stair Handle. To use when cleaning stairs.
11. Brush Roll Control. Flip this lever to choose between cleaning hard
floors and carpeting. Brush roll is “off” for hard floors and “on” for carpets.
NOTE: When handle is in upright position, brush roll
automatically shuts off.
12. Cleaner Height Setting. The front of the cleaner has an adjustment that raises or lowers the cleaner base to match the
type of floor surface. With the cleaner cord unplugged, set the adjustment to lowest setting for maximum carpet cleaning.
If the cleaner is difficult to push, move adjustment to next highest setting until cleaner is comfortable to push.
The brush roll must reach the carpet for effective cleaning. The optimal hard floor cleaning adjustment is located next to
lowest carpet setting. For ease in moving the adjustment knob, place handle in operating position and tilt cleaner back to
remove weight from front wheels.
NOTE: The suction against some types of flooring may require higher cleaner height setting. The Hard Floor
setting is recommended, but the actual setting used for your hard floor may need to be adjusted for best
performance and ease of movement.
WARNING: Avoid injury. Keep loose clothing, hair, fingers, and all other parts of body away from any moving
part (such as the revolving brush). Turn off the switch and unplug the cleaner before changing the
cleaner height setting.

HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls, check the bag,
belt, and brush roll often.
Brush Roll
The brush roll turns as it sweeps and combs the carpet nap. Remove hair and threads from the brush roll so it continues
brushing the carpet. To maintain the most efficient cleaning, the bristles must touch the carpet. To test the bristle length,
hold a ruler against the underneath side of the cleaner. If the bristles no longer touch the ruler, replace the brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt turns the brush roll to agitate, sweep, and comb the carpet nap. Check the belt regularly to be sure it is
in good condition. Replace the belt if it cracks or tears. Cut away any hair or threads wound around the brush roll or the belt
pulley because the buildup could cause the belt to rotate unevenly.
How To Replace Brush Roll Belt, Part No. 61110

NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord

hot during normal use. To prevent injury, avoid

How To Replace Brush Roll Belt (continued)
Disposable Dust Bag and Filters
The disposable dust bag plays a very important role in
the efficiency of a vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the
paper bag is to trap dirt. As the bag traps dirt, it must also
be porous enough to allow air to pass on through. If the
paper bag becomes clogged, no air can pass through the
cleaner and no cleaning can take place regardless of how
powerful the unit. Change the dust bag and check the
filters frequently. Some fine particles can restrict airflow
very quickly and will decrease performance even before
the bag appears to be full.
When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder,
plaster dust, or similar fine substances, the bag and filters
may require more frequent maintenance.
How To Replace Bags–Style RR
Filteraire
NOTE: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord before changing dust bag. Never operate

original purchaser and members of his or her immediate household. The warranty is subject to the following provisions.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover
