Thank you for your faith in our products!
We have produced these Instructions for Use and Maintenance so as to enable you to use your central
vacuum cleaning system in the best way possible. These instructions are meant for the central vacuum
cleaner models C 30 Premium, C 40 Premium and C 40 Premium LCD. Nameplate markings (Type):
TE-1650-..-.., TE-1750-..-..
Please read the instructions carefully before using the system and follow all instructions in this manual. The
detailed installation instructions for the wall inlets and parts of the piping can be found in the installation
manual for the Allaway central vacuum cleaning system. You can ensure the operation, efficiency, and
long service life of your central vacuum cleaning system by following all instructions and by only using
original Allaway parts and supplies. Keep the stickers from the product packaging to facilitate further
purchases and expansion of the system.
Keep the machine out of reach of small children. The machine is not a toy. The machine should not be
used by persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental abilities. Monitor and instruct older children
and persons with insufficient experience or skills in the use of the machine.
GENERAL GUIDELINES
n These central vacuum cleaners are only designed for domestic use and should only be used by one
person at a time and only for cleaning normal dust and rubbish.
n Prior to starting up the unit for the first time, please check that the dust canister is empty and that
the filter is in place.
n If the central unit is used for vacuuming anything other than normal dust, a suitable Allaway preseparator must be used.
n The wall inlets are equipped with catchers that stop large particles from entering the pipe system,
and longitudinal objects are caught in the steep elbow couplings located behind the inlets.
n Only one wall inlet can be open at a time when the system is operational, and the covers of all other
inlets must be closed. Keeping more than one inlet open at a time weakens the suction power of
the system and increases the risk of blockages.
1 installation
1.1 Positioning of the Central Unit
l For detailed instructions for installation, please refer to the separate instructions for installing Allaway
central vacuum cleaning systems, which are supplied as standard with pipe kits PPK-44 and PPC-44 and
can also be ordered separately. The instructions can also be found on our website at www.allaway.fi.
n Please follow local regulations for installations.
n The room in which the central unit is installed must be sufficiently spacious and dust-free to allow
for the cooling air required for the motor.
n The temperature of the room in which the central unit is located must not drop below +5 ° C or
rise above +35 °C, even while the unit is operational. The heat produced by the motor of the central
unit is released into the room. It is therefore important to ensure that air can circulate freely around
the unit and that the unit is not covered with textiles, for example, and that the room is adequately
ventilated.
3
n If the central unit is to be installed in a cupboard, pay particular attention to instructions relating
to the size and arrangement of ventilation holes.
n In addition to storerooms and other utility facilities, the C series central units can also be installed
within the actual living quarters, such as in the utility room, a den or a cleaning cupboard. Furthermore,
C 30 Premium and C 40 Premium can also be located in damp or even wet areas, such as the
washroom, thanks to their high drip-proof casing class (splash-proof IPX4). C 30 Premium, C 40
Premium = double insulated, protection class II. C 40 Premium LCD = earthed, protection class I.
n The central unit is connected to a 230V power socket protected with a slow fuse of at least 10 A
or an automatic fuse of at least 16 A.
Never store or handle flammable or corrosive materials in the room where the
central unit is located.
n The exhaust pipe of the central unit is always led outside. We recommend that a muffler (accessory)
be fitted onto the exhaust pipe. The muffler should be positioned as close to the end of the exhaust
pipe as possible for maximum power. Mufflers must not be installed on the suction side.
2 MAINTENANCE
2.1 Emptying the Dust Canister
The dust canister’s volume is approximately 13 litres. The intervals for emptying the dust canister can be
established with experience. The guideline is that in domestic use the dust canister should be emptied
every three months or so. The canister must be emptied before the level of dust reaches the bottom of
the quick release clips. This helps to prevent dust seeping over the edges of the canister in connection
with emptying it.
Undo the quick release clips (1) of the dust canister. The dust canister (2) is now suspended inside the
central unit. Take hold of the clips and pull the dust canister outwards to empty it. Carefully clean the
sealing (3) and then refit the dust canister into place.
It is recommended that the dust canister be washed with a mild detergent once a year. Make a note of
any maintenance you perform in the Maintenance Log on page 11 to help keep track of maintenance
intervals.
4
2.2 Servicing the Filter (Figure 1)
7
The central unit is equipped with a filter (4) that protects the
turbine against dust. The filter must be intact and correctly in
place. New filters can be purchased from all leading retailers and
authorised Allaway service dealers.
8
n Unplug the power cord (5) from the socket.
n Take out the dust canister and empty it.
n Carefully remove the filter cover if any (see section Filter
Cover for the Central Unit), undo the mounting nut (6)
located underneath the filter and remove the filter (4).

n Clean the filter by brushing it lightly or replace it if the filter
is damaged or blocked. Do not allow any dirt to enter the
inside of the filter.
Figure 1
2
Never clean the filter with water, compressed air or by beating it.
n Remove any loose dust from the filter chamber and fit the filter into place. Tighten the mounting
nut (6) by hand, fit the new filter cover (accessory) into place, clean the sealing (3) carefully and fit
the dust canister into place.
n Plug the power cord (5) into the socket.
We recommend that the filter is replaced at least every 3 years. If a dust bag is used,
only replace the filter when necessary.
2.3 Cleaning Accessories
Tell children how to use the system and supervise them while they do so!
The speed and vacuum power of the airflow in the suction hose and the nozzles
are so great that they could, if used carelessly, cause damage to eyes and ears, for
example.
The cleaning accessories are subject to wear and tear according to the frequency of use and the floor
materials, and they must be replaced when necessary. Their life can be extended significantly by cleaning
them from accumulated dirt after use and by storing them appropriately.
After vacuuming, detach the telescopic wand and the nozzles from the handle, and store them in the
nozzle holder with the brush of the floor/carpet nozzle retracted. Avoid storing the cleaning accessories
in direct sunlight, as long-term exposure to UV light makes the plastic parts, and especially the hose, go
brittle, thus shortening their serviceable life. Store the hose in the suction hose stand.
Separate instructions for use and maintenance are supplied with cleaning sets that are sold individually.

3 SAFETY DEVICES
The central units are equipped with safety devices that stop the unit in case of a
malfunction. If the issue causing the safety devices to trip is not resolved and the
system is used regardless of the malfunction, damage to the system may occur.
This is why the safety devices should not be considered as indicators of when the
dust canister requires emptying or when the filter needs servicing, or otherwise as
means of enabling the system to be used or installed in a manner contradictory to
the instructions.
3.1 Overload Protector
The central unit is equipped with an overload protector that stops the unit in case of an electrical
overload or malfunction. The overload protector cannot be reset and must be replaced by a qualified
electrical engineer. In connection with replacing the overload protector, the cause of tripping must be
investigated and resolved along with any other faults.
3.2 Overheat Protectors
The overheat protector of the turbine is located inside the unit and it stops the central unit in case
the turbine overheats. Wait until the turbine has cooled down and the overheat protector has been reset
(approximately 10-15 min.). Find out why the overheat protector has tripped and eliminate the cause (e.g.
full dust canister, blocked filter, blockage in the pipe system, wall inlet, exhaust pipe, cleaning accessories
or the blow-out grating). If whatever it is that causes the safety devices to trip is not resolved and the
system is used regardless of the malfunction, damage to the system may occur.
There are no parts for the user to maintain inside the central unit’s motor housing
(figure 1: 7). We recommend that the need for maintenance and replacement for the
electric motor’s turbine and other parts inside the motor housing are estimated by an
authorised Allaway service dealer after approx. 600 hours of use. This corresponds to
approx. 8 years when the device is used an average of an hour and a half per week.
4 POWER CORD
If the power cord of the central unit has been damaged, it must be replaced with a special cord compatible
with the model of central unit in question and supplied by the manufacturer. Power cords can be purchased
from authorised Allaway service dealers.
5 USEFUL TIPS
5.1 What to Do if the Central Unit Will Not Start
n Check that the 230V power supply is intact.
n Check whether the central unit can be started from the other wall inlets.
n Check that the low voltage connector (figure 1) is connected correctly to its counterpart on the
wall bracket of the central unit.
6
n Check whether the central unit can be started via the low voltage connector (figure 1: 8) of the
central unit by closing the start circuit with a piece of metal wire.
n In case of suction hoses that are equipped with a handle start mechanism, check that the start
circuit of the hose is intact. If the central unit can be started by connecting the contact pins of a
wall inlet with a piece of metal wire, for example, but not with the control switch on the suction
hose handle, the fault is either in the hose or in the switch.
n If the central unit can be started via the low voltage connector but not by opening a wall inlet,
check that there are no breaks in the wires.
n Check whether the overheat protector of the electric motor has tripped (see section Safety
Devices).
n Check whether the overheat protector of the turbine has tripped (see section Safety Devices).
n Check whether the overload protector of the electric motor has tripped. If this is the case, the
start relay of the central unit will make a clicking sound but the motor will not start; contact an
authorised Allaway service dealer.
5.2 What to Do if Suction Power Has Dropped
n Check that all other wall inlets are closed and that they do not leak.
n Check that there are no objects inside the wall inlet that could obstruct flow.
n Check that the suction hose is intact and that no objects that could obstruct flow are lodged in
it.
n Check that the dust canister is correctly in place and that the sealing materials of the dust canister
are clean and intact.
n Check that the dust canister is not full or that the dust bag does not require replacing.
n Check that the filter is in good condition.
n Check that the pipe system is airtight.
5.3 What to Do if the Suction Hose Is Damaged
Cut the damaged section out and reconnect the hose using an extension coupling muff (accessory).
If the hose breaks near the hose coupling muff or the handle, detach the muff or handle, cut out the
damaged section and twist the hose coupling muff or handle back onto the hose. The components of
the hose have a left-handed thread.
In suction hoses equipped with a handle start mechanism, the start circuit wires are built into the hose.
The hose cannot be shortened or extended. In case of damage to the hose, contact an authorised
Allaway service dealer.
7
5.4 What to Do if the Pipe System or the Exhaust Pipe Is
Blocked
n Empty the dust canister and clean or replace the filter.
n Locate the blockage by sucking strips of kitchen paper through the wall inlets. If the strips of paper
end up in the dust canister, that stretch of the pipe system is clear.
n Once you have located the blockage, disconnect the central unit and check that there are no blockages
in the coupling hoses. Then use the suction hose bushing to connect the suction-side coupling to a
wall inlet along the blocked stretch (or to the wall inlet closest to the blockage, if the blockage is
in the frame pipe). Start the central unit via the low voltage connector (figure 1: 8) with the help of
a piece of metal wire, and then go to where the central unit is usually mounted. Block and unblock
the suction pipe opening with your hand to send vacuum shocks to the blocked pipe. If the blockage
has not become dislodged within 10-15 seconds, disconnect the central unit from the wall inlet to
allow the turbine to get some air in between and to stop it from overheating. Repeat the process
after approximately one minute.
n If the blockage cannot be dislodged through suction and you are able to pinpoint its location, it is
worth examining whether the pipe system is easily accessible without having to dismantle too much
of the structure. If the pipe system is accessible, the blockage can usually be removed by opening a
pipe joint.
n Never use overpressure, such as compressed air, to try unblocking the pipe system, as overpressure
will cause the pipe joints to become undone.
n You can also try dislodging the blockage by inserting a tension spring into the pipe system, taking
care not to damage the pipe joints.
n If none of the measures described above are successful in unblocking the pipe system, contact an
authorised Allaway service dealer.
5.5 Details Required for Maintenance Purposes
Prior to contacting an authorised Allaway service cleaner, note down
the type and serial number (N:o) of your central unit, marked on the
nameplate on the external surface of the central unit, on the side of the
turbine housing.
Always keep the unit in its normal upright position during transportation
and take care not to drop it or to make it subject to blows.
8
6 INSPECTING THE PIPE SYSTEM FOR TIGHTNESS
Start the central unit with all wall inlets closed via the low
voltage connector (figure 1: 8) using a piece of metal wire. If
air is still escaping from the exhaust pipe after approximately
10 seconds, there is a leak in the pipe system. The leak must
be located and repaired. Do not run the unit for more than
20 seconds with all of the wall inlets closed. If the installation
is completely airtight, the turbine will not receive any air,
therefore overheating and possibly incurring damage. The
bypass valve must be blocked for the duration of the inspection
using a piece of cardboard, for example (figure 2).

7 ACCESSORIES
7.1 Pre-separators
The EE-20 is designed for vacuuming liquids, sand and coarse rubbish. If the pre-separator is equipped
with a dust bag, the EE-20 also enables the vacuuming of cooled-down ashes and fine dry dust.
Sticky substances and shards of glass may damage the pipe system. The system must
not be used for vacuuming liquids or substances other than normal dust unless a
suitable Allaway-pre-separator is used.
7.2 Dust Bag Installation Kits
The central units can be equipped with a dust bag. Dust bag
installation kits are available from all leading retailers. Using
a dust bag is not obligatory, but it is recommended. Detailed
instructions for installation are supplied with the dust bag
installation kit.
When using a dust bag installation kit (figure 3), the dust bag
is replaced and the filter serviced as follows:
Remove the dust bag (9), undo the mounting nut (6) located
underneath the filter, remove the dust bag rest (10) and detach
the filter.

Figure 3
7.3 Filter Cover for the Central
Unit
The filter cover (figure 4) facilitates cleaning the filter and
lengthens the maintenance intervals and life of the filter. Using
a filter cover is not obligatory, but it is recommended. Never
use a filter cover in central units that are equipped with a
dust bag. Filter covers are available from all leading retailers
(sold in bags of 5).
