General Safety Information
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
13.
When using the vacuum cleaner, basic safety precautions
should always be observed, including the following:
Do not vacuum up harmful or toxic materials (chlorine,
bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner etc.).
14.
Only use the vacuum cleaner indoors on dry surfaces.
Do not handle the plug or vacuum cleaner with wet
hands. Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
Do not vacuum up hard or sharp objects such as glass,
nails, screws, coins, etc.
15.
Do not use without ALL of the filters in place.
16.
Take extra care when vacuuming on stairs.
Turn off the vacuum cleaner controls before
disconnecting or connecting from the mains supply.
17.
Keep vacuuming area well lit.
Always unplug the vacuum cleaner before connecting or
disconnecting the vacuum hose and accessories.
18.
Store the vacuum cleaner in a cool, dry area.
19.
4.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not
play with the appliance.
Turn off the on/off switch before unplugging the
vacuum cleaner
20.
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.
Use only 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.
1.
2.
3.
6.
7.
Use only as described in this manual. Use only Vax
recommended attachments.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet before
assembling, opening or emptying the dirt container, or before
connecting/disconnecting the attachments.
!
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.
!
Do not use the vacuum cleaner if it has been dropped,
damaged, left outdoors or dropped into water. Do not
use the vacuum cleaner with a damaged cord or plug.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by
the manufacturer or a recommended Service Agent to
avoid hazard and invalidating the guarantee.
IMPORTANT: If the inlet, hose or telescopic tube is
blocked, switch off the vacuum cleaner and remove
the blockage(s) before re-starting the vacuum cleaner. See
Maintenance: Clearing blockages.
8.
Do not pull or carry by cord. Do not use the cord as a
handle, close a door on the cord or pull cord around
sharp edges or corners. Do not run the vacuum
cleaner over the cord. Keep the cord away from
heated surfaces.
IMPORTANT: Washing filters maintains vacuum
performance. Vax recommends that they should
be checked and cleaned periodically (depending on the level
of use). Make sure all filters are completely dry before
inserting back into the vacuum cleaner.
9.
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.
10.
Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of the
body away from openings and moving parts.
11.
Do not pick up hot coals, cigarette butts, matches or
any hot, smoking or burning objects.
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.
12.
Do not pick up flammable or combustible materials
(lighter fluid, petrol, kerosene etc.) or use in the
presence of explosive liquids or vapours.
