IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER
WARNING
ENGLISH
!
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical
cord when not in use and before servicing.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer's recommended attachments.
• Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been
dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord. Do not use cord as a handle. Do not close a door on cord or pull cord
around sharp edges or corners. Do not run vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away from
heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Hold plug when rewinding into cord reel. Do not allow plug to whip when rewinding.
• Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
• 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.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing,
fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not place vacuum cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage. Use extra
care when cleaning stairs. Place vacuum cleaner on floor with the handle in storage
position while using attachments.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without dust cup, filter and screen, and HEPA exhaust filter in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley
when servicing the drive belt.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where
they may be present.
• Store your vacuum cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Unplug before connecting turbo nozzle.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully
into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the
proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
Motor
Do Not Oil the motor or the brush roll at any time. The bearings are permanently lubricated
and sealed.

2) Check the vacuum for a possible source of overheating such as a full dust cup, blocked hose or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them
and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the vacuum.
3) After the 30 minute period, plug the vacuum back in and turn on the switch. If the vacuum still does not work, call the Eureka customer service helpline.
