GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
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 equipmentgrounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be
plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding 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 product - if it will not fit the
outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified
electrician.

(A)
Figure 1
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and
has a ground plug that looks like the plug illustrated in figure
1. Make sure that the appliance is connected to an outlet
having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter
should be used with this appliance.
WARNING: To prevent possible electric shock, protect
the machine from rain. Keep the machine in a dry
building.
WARNING: To prevent possible electric shock, always
use a 3-wire electrical system connected to the electrical ground. For maximum protection against electrical shock, use a circuit that is protected by a ground
fault circuit interrupter. Consult your electrical contractor.
WARNING: Do not cut, remove or break the ground
pin. If the outlet does not fit the plug, consult your
electrical contractor.
WARNING: Have worn, cut or damaged
cords replaced by an authorized service person.
EXTENSION CORDS
Use only an approved extension cord with three conductors,
a plug with three terminals, and a connector body with three
holes. The machine has a power cord with wire size 16
AWG (AWG means American Wire Gauge).
WARNING: If you use an extension cord, use an
extension cord with minimum wire size 14 AWG.
Do not use an extension cord longer than 50 feet.
Do not join two extension cords.
APPLIANCE PLUG SOCKET
Before connecting any appliance to the appliance plug
socket, the machine must always be switched off. If appliances are connected to the appliance plug socket, ensure
that these appliances are also switched off when being
connected to the appliance plug socket.
CAUTION: The operating instructions and the safety
precautions contained therein must be observed
when using appliances connected to the appliance
plug socket of the machine.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE MACHINE
CAUTION!
On delivery, the accessories - are lying in the tank and
must be removed before the machine is used for the first
time. See figure 2.
To assemble the machine, remove the machine top
section:
The power cord must not yet be inserted into a plug
socket.
1. Open the retaining clamps and lift off the machine top
section (Figure 3).
2. Place a bag-type filter into the tank as described in the
instructions printed on the filter.
3. Fit the machine top section back on the tank, and close
the retaining clamps.
4. Connect the suction hose. The "Wap Multifit" enables
any Wap Technology suction hoses (27, 32, 36, 50 mm
diameter) to be connected to the machine (Figure 4).
MACHINE OPERATION
Picking Up Dry Substances
Before picking up dry substances, the bag-type filter
should always be installed in the tank. It is then easy to
dispose of the material picked up and the service life of
the main filter element is significantly increased. Dry
cleaning without bag-type filter is also possible.
Figure 2
WARNING: Inflammable substances must not be
picked up with the machine!
After picking up liquids, the filter element is damp. Damp
filter elements can clog more quickly when dry substances
are picked up. For this reason, the filter element should
be dried or replaced before picking up any dry substances.
Picking Up Liquids
Before picking up liquids, the bag-type filter must always
be removed from the tank.
WARNING: Inflammable liquids must not be picked
up with the machine!
If foaming is observed, stop work immediately and empty
the tank.
Switching On The Machine (C.A.V 15)
Turn the switch to position "I" (Figure 3).
