INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTION TO
THE POWER SUPPLY AND THE
ELECTRICAL GROUND
This machine must be connected to the electrical
ground to protect the operator from electric shock. The
machine has an approved power cord with three conductors and a plug with three terminals. Connect the plug
to a receptacle that has three holes and is connected to
the electrical ground. The green (or green and yellow)
conductor in the cord is the ground wire. Never connect
this wire to any terminal other than the ground pin
terminal.
This machine uses a 110 to 120 volts AC 60 cycle
electrical circuit. Make sure you have the correct
frequency and voltage before connecting the power cord
to an outlet. The machine has a plug as shown in
Figure 9(A). If a receptacle connected to the electrical
ground (A) is not available, use an adapter as shown in
Figure 9(C). This adapter must be connected as shown
in Figure 9(B) to an electrical ground in the electrical
outlet. Make sure you use a plate screw and the
ground tab to fasten the adapter.
WARNING:
Always use this machine with an
AC three-conductor electrical
system connected to the electrical ground. Replace any worn,
cut or damaged cords. Replace
any damaged plugs, receptacles
or connector bodies.
WARNING:
For maximum protection against
electric shock, use an electrical
circuit interrupter. Get this
device from your electrical
supplier.
WARNING:
Do not cut, remove or break the
ground terminal. Do not try to fit
a three terminal plug into a
receptacle or connector body
that does not fit the plug. If the
receptacle or connector body
does not fit the plug, see your
authorized dealer to get an
authorized person to make the
connection.
WARNING:
Do not move the machine over
an electrical cord. Always lift
the cord over the machine.

EXTENSION CORDS
Use only an approved extension cord with three conductors, a plug with three terminals and a connector body
with three holes. This machine has a power cord with
wire size 18 AWG (AWG means American Wire
Gauge).
WARNING:

If you use an extension cord,
use an extension cord with
minimum wire size 16 AWG.

MAINTENANCE
This section describes the procedures that must be done
by a person authorized to do maintenance.
Maintenance of the Motor
This machine uses a universal motor that has a commutator and carbon brushes. The commutator and carbon
brushes must be checked after every 6 months or every
600 hours of operation, which ever comes first.
WARNING:
Electrical inspections must be made
by a person authorized to do
maintenance. Electrical repairs
must be made by a person authorized to make electrical repairs.
WARNING:
To prevent electric shock, always
remove the electrical plug from the
electrical outlet before doing any
repairs or maintenance to this
machine.
Figure 10
How to Check the Commutator and the Carbon Brushes
To check the commutator and the carbon brushes, follow
this procedure:
1.
Remove the screws that hold the motor cover and
remove the cover.
2.
Remove the spring clips that hold the top of the
vacuum motor and remove the top of the vacuum
motor.
3.
Inspect the commutator. Take the machine to an
authorized repair location if you see any of the following
conditions.
a. Small holes in the surface of the commutator.
See figure 10A.
b. Uneven color - Look for an even dark brown color.
Clean areas or very dark areas indicate a problem.
See figure 10B.
c. High mica - The mica insulation must be lower
than the commutator bars. See figure 10C.
4.
Remove the carbon brush assemblies and check the
carbon brushes. Replace both carbon brush assemblies if either carbon brush is shorter that 1 cm (3/8
inch). If either brush is shorter than 13 mm (1/2 inch),
order replacement brushes. Be ready to replace both
carbon brushes earlier than the normal inspection
time.
5.
Install the top of the motor, the motor cover, and the
fasteners.
WARNING:
The machine must be tested for
electrical safety after electrical
repairs are made.
NOTE: For the best operation, have the machine checked
by an authorized repair person every 12 months. For
safe operation and longer life of your machine, use only
genuine Clarke Technology replacement parts.
