This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path
of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped
with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be inserted
into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance if it will not fit the outlet,
have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounded plug that looks like the
plug illustrated ‘in sketch A. A temporary adaptor that looks like the adaptor illustrated in sketches
and C may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown in sketch if a properly
grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adaptor should be used only until a properly grounded
outlet (sketch A) can be installed by a qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug, or.
the like extending from the adaptor must be connected to a permanent ground such as a properly
grounded outlet box cover. Whenever the adaptor is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw.
Note: In Canada, the use of a temporary adaptor is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.
Accidents due to misuse can only be prevented by those using the machine. To guard against injury, basic safety
precautions should be observed, including the following:
Read and follow all safety instructions.
WARNING: ELECTRIC SHOCK COULD OCCUR IF USED
OUTDOORS OR ON WET SURFACES
This vacuum cleaner is designed to be safe when used to perform cleaning functions. Should damage occur to
electrical or mechanical parts, cleaner should be repaired by WINDSOR or competent service station before
using in order to avoid further damage to machine or physical injury to user.
A damaged power cord could cause electrical shock and/or fire. To minimize this possibility observe the
following precautions:
Do not run cleaner over power cord.
Avoid closing doors on power cord, pulling it around sharp edges, or placing sharp-edged objects
upon it.
Wind cord no tighter than is necessary to retain it on the cord hooks.
When disconnecting power cord from electrical outlet, grasp the plug. Pulling it out by the cord itself
can damage cord insulation and internal connections to plug.
Your vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush. To avoid bodily injury from suction or
moving parts, vacuum cleaner brush should not be placed against, or in close proximity of loose clothing, jewelry,
hair or body surfaces while cleaner is connected to electrical outlet. Cleaner should not be used to vacuum
clothing while it is being worn. Keep children away from machine when in operation or plugged in.
If used on plush carpet or carpet with thick padding, turn off unit when handle is in upright position. When using
accessory tools, keep floor brush off carpet by keeping handle in locked position and lowering handle with one
hand to raise brush off floor. Operate accessories with other hand.
Always plug your cleaner into a standard wall outlet. Use of extension cord or light socket with inadequate currentcarrying capacity could result in electric shock or fire hazard.
Disconnect cleaner from electrical outlet before servicing, such as changing bags or belts. You could receive
bodily injury from moving parts of machine should switch accidentally be turned on. Disconnect cleaner from
electrical outlet before detaching powerhead.
Do not use your vacuum cleaner in areas where flammable and/or explosive vapor or dust is present to avoid
possibility of fire or explosion. Some cleaning fluids can produce such vapors. Areas on which cleaning fluids
have been used should be completely dry and thoroughly aired before being vacuumed.
To avoid fire hazard, do not pick up matches, fireplace ashes, or smoking material with cleaner.
Keep your work area well lighted to avoid picking up harmful materials (such as liquids, sharp objects, or burning
substances) and avoid tripping accidents.
Use care when operating the cleaner on irregular surfaces such as stairs. A falling cleaner could cause bodily
injury and/or mechanical damage. Proper storage of machine in an out-of-the-way area immediately after use will
also prevent accidents caused by tripping over cleaner.
Store your vacuum indoors in a cool, dry area not exposed to the weather to avoid electrical shock and/or
cleaner damage.
Exercise strict supervision to prevent injury when using vacuum cleaner near children or when child is allowed to
operate vacuum cleaner. Do not allow children to play with vacuum cleaner and never leave cleaner plugged in
and unattended.
