Thank you for choosing a Volta Vacuum Cleaner
from the Electrolux Group. To ensure total
satisfaction, read the instruction manual carefully.
Retain for reference.
When using an electrical appliance, basic precaution
should always be followed, including the following:
Before connecting the cleaner to an electrical supply
outlet ensure that the voltage marked on the rating
plate ( on the underside of the cleaner ) is correct
for your electrical supply. If it does not comply, do
not use the cleaner prior to contacting
the manufacturer.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
1. Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing.
2. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
3. Young children should be supervised to
ensure that they do not play with the appliance. Close attention is necessary when used near children.
4. The appliance is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons
without supervision.
5. Use only as described in this manual.
Use only manufacturer’s
recommended attachments.
6. Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If the
vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped in water, enter it to a service centre before using.
7. Do not pull or carry on cord, use as a handle.
Do not close door on cord, or pull around
sharp edges or corners. Do not run the
vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away
from heated surfaces.
8. Do not unplug by pulling on the cord.
To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
9. Do not handle the plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
10. 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.
11. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
It is dangerous to alter the specification or modify
the product in any way. Under no circumstances
should you attempt to repair the cleaner
yourself. Repairs undertaken by unauthorized or
inexperienced persons may cause injury and/or
serious malfunction and may void warranty.
NB! To avoid injury and prevent damage to the
machine, a defective lead must only be replaced by
an authorized Volta service provider approved by
the manufacturer to avoid hazard.
The cleaner should be serviced by an authorized
Volta service provider and only genuine Volta spare
parts should be used.
Your vacuum cleaner is double insulated. This means
that all external parts are electrically insulated from
the mains. This is done by placing insulation barriers
between the electrical and mechanical components,
making it unnecessary for the cleaner to be earthed.

bag or fit it in the incorrect manner the dust
compartment will be difficult to close. This is a safe
guard so that the cleaner cannot be used without a

and the Floor nozzle is raised off the floor.

The vacuum cleaner stops automatically if the
nozzle, tubes or hose becomes blocked or if the
filters are blocked, this is due to a safety precaution
which prevents the motor from overheating. The

removed from the power outlet, grasping the plug
not the cord for removal.

Water has entered the vacuum cleaner
It will be necessary for the Fan Unit / Motor to be
checked and if required replaced by an Authorised
Electrolux service centre.
Damage to the Fan Unit / Motor caused by
penetration of water is not covered by warranty.
Use a flexible hose or similar item to clear the tube
and the hose. It is sometimes possible to clear the
blockage in the hose by “massaging” it. However, be
careful in case the obstruction has been caused by
glass or needles caught inside the hose.
Note: the warranty does not cover any damage to
hoses caused by cleaning them.
Cleaning The Floor Nozzle
It is recommended to frequently clean the dual
purpose floor nozzle, this will avoid the reduction
of suction and prevents the lever for changing from
hard floors to soft floors being difficult to activate.
The easiest way to clean the nozzle is by connecting
the hose to the vacuum cleaner and use the hose
bent end handle.
