Polarization Instructions
POWER CORD, 2-WIRE POLARIZED CORD
Household models: X9 & G9
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this product is equipped with a polarized alternating
current line plug (a plug having one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit into the
power outlet only one way. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug fully
into the outlet, try reversing the plug. If the plug should still fail to fit, contact a qualified
electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the polarized plug.

Full suction power might be too strong for
some cleaning situations. For example,
reduced suction power would be
appropriate for cleaning sheer curtains.
• On the curved handle, locate the suction
relief valve and slide it backward. This reduces the suction power coming
through the tool. Slide the valve forward when finished to restore full suction power.

Problem Solving Guide
Jammed brushroll
If an object, such as a throw rug or
article of clothing is ever picked up into
your vacuum, the vacuum will sense this
“jammed brushroll” condition and turn off
the brushroll. When this happens, the “brushroll warning” light on the top of the
Brushroll
nozzle will light up in red.
• Turn off the vacuum and remove the
cause of the jam. Turn vacuum back on. If
the brushroll is free of any object and the
“brushroll warning” light is still lit, it’s likely
the clogged condition is located in the
Red Warning Light
vacuum motor fan. If so, please take your
Synergy to your Authorized Simplicity
Retailer for service.
