IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
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:
• The vacuum is intended for household use only.
• Use the vacuum only as described in this manual.
• Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
Environment
Use of the vacuum outdoors or on wet surfaces may result in
damage to the appliance and void the warranty. Do not use
outdoors or on wet surfaces.
Use of the vacuum on stairs may cause imbalance, slippage or
tumbling. Always check your balance and ensure your footing
when cleaning on stairs.
Use of the vacuum in an enclosed space containing flammable, explosive materials or toxic vapors may result in an
unexpected spark or fire. Do not use the vacuum in such an
enclosed space. Always check exposed wiring and wire connections before use.
Operation
This appliance has powerful suction capability. Do not allow
it to be used as a toy and always maintain close attention when
used by or near children.
Loose clothing, jewelry and long hair may become entangled
in the suction of the vacuum and cause personal injury.
Always keep loose clothing, jewelry, fingers and all parts of
body away from openings.
Use of the vacuum with an opening blocked may reduce airflow. Keep all openings free of dust, lint, hair etc. Ensure the
filter bag assembly is in place before use.
Improper handling of the power cord may result in wiring,
connection damage and potential sparking or shock. Always
follow these instructions when handling the power cord:
•
Do not pull or carry the vacuum by the cord
•
Do not use the cord as a handle
•
Do not unplug the vacuum by pulling on the cord
•
Do not close a door on the cord
•
Do not pull the cord around sharp edges or corners
•
Keep the cord away from heated surfaces
•
Do not run the vacuum or other appliance over
the cord
A damaged cord or plug may cause a spark, shock and fire.
Always grasp the plug, not the cord, when unplugging the
vacuum. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or its service agent or similarly qualified
person in order to avoid a hazard.
Always check the cord and plug before use. If appliance is
not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center
or call customer service at: U.S.: 1-800-989-3535 Canada:
1-888-676-7325.
•
Do not use the machine without a motor protection filter
installed
If abnormal noise, smell, smoke or any other failure or breakage is found during the operation, you should turn off the
switch and unplug it. Then contact your service center for
repair. Do not attempt to repair by yourself.
Using the vacuum with wet hands and on wet surfaces may
result in unexpected shock, slippage and personal injury.
Do not handle the plug or appliance with wet hands or on
wet surfaces.
Vacuuming burning or smoking objects, flammable or combustible liquids and toxic material may result in a fire and
personal injury. Do not vacuum burning or smoking objects,
flammable or combustible liquids.
Unplugging the vacuum while the controls are ON may cause
sparking and fire. Turn OFF all controls before unplugging.
Do not leave appliance unattended when plugged in. Unplug
from outlet when not in use and before servicing.
