When using the vacuum cleaner, basic safety
precautions should always be observed, including

Do not handle the plug or vacuum cleaner with wet
hands. Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
2. Turn off the vacuum cleaner controls before
disconnecting or connecting from the mains supply.
3. Always unplug the vacuum cleaner before connecting
or disconnecting the vacuum hose and accessories.
4. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do
not play with the appliance.
5. This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person
responsible for their safety.
6. Only use as described in this manual. Only use
recommended attachments.
7. Do not use the vacuum cleaner if it has been
dropped, damaged, left outdoors or dropped into water.
8. Do not use the vacuum cleaner with a damaged cord
or plug. If the supply cord is damaged, call the helpline
for assistance.
9. Do not pull or carry by cord/hose. Do not use the
cord/hose as a handle, close a door on the cord/hose or
pull cord/hose around sharp edges or corners. Do not
run the vacuum cleaner over the cord. Keep the cord
away from heated surfaces.
10. Do not put any objects into openings. Do not use
with any openings blocked and do not restrict air-flow.
Keep all openings free of dust, lint, hair or anything that
might reduce airflow.
11. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of the
body away from openings and moving parts.
12. Do not pick up hot coals, cigarette butts, matches
or any hot, smoking or burning objects.
13. Do not pick up flammable or combustible materials
(lighter fluid, petrol, kerosene etc.) or use in the
presence of explosive liquids or vapours.
14. Do not vacuum up harmful or toxic material
(chlorine, bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner etc.).
15. Do not vacuum up hard or sharp objects such as
glass, nails, screws, coins, etc.
16 Do not use without ALL of the filters in place.
17. Take extra care when vacuuming on stairs.
18. Keep vacuuming area well lit.
19. Store the vacuum cleaner in a cool, dry area.
20. Turn off the on/off switch before unplugging the
vacuum cleaner.
21. Only use CE - approved 13 amp extension cords.
Non-approved cords may overheat. Care should be
taken to arrange the cord so that the cord cannot be
tripped over.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet before
assembling, opening or emptying the dirt container,
connecting/disconnecting the attachments, or carrying
out maintenance or troubleshooting checks.
!
CAUTION: The vacuum cleaner is a very
powerful unit. Before plugging the cord into the
electrical outlet, make sure the switch is in the ‘off’
position. Hold the vacuum cleaner firmly when starting
and in use.
!
IMPORTANT: If the inlet, hose or extension
tube is blocked, switch off the vacuum cleaner
and remove the blockage(s) before re-starting the
vacuum cleaner.
!
IMPORTANT: We recommend that filters should
be checked and cleaned periodically. For
washable filters, ensure they are completely dry before
inserting back into the vacuum cleaner. Do not wash
with detergents. Use only warm water, max 40°c.
!
IMPORTANT: The motor is equipped with a
thermal cut-out. If for any reason the unit should
overheat, the thermostat will automatically turn the unit
off. Should this occur, unplug the vacuum cleaner from
the electrical outlet and turn off the switch. Remove
dirt container and empty. Clean filters. Allow the unit to
cool for approximately one (1) hour. To re-start, plug
into an electrical outlet and switch back on.
!
This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use
only and NOT for commercial or industrial use.
PLEASE KEEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR FURTHER USE.
