GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
Grounded
Outlet Box
Preparation:
The following are instructions for connection to the
power supply and the electrical ground.
This machine must be connected to the electrical ground to
protect the operator from electrical shock. The machine has
an approved power cord with three conductors and a plug
with three terminals. Connect the plug to a receptacle that
has three holes and is connected to the electrical ground.
The green (or green and yellow) conductor in the cord is the
ground wire. Never connect this wire to any terminal other
than the ground pin terminal.
DANGER:
Improper connection of
Grounding Blade
is longest of the
three blades
FIGURE A
the equipment-grounding conductor can result
in 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 machine is for use on a 110 to 120 Volt AC 60 cycle
electric circuit. Make sure you have the correct frequency
and voltage before connecting the power cord to an outlet.
The machine has a plug as shown in figure A.
WARNING: Always use this machine with an AC
three-conductor electrical system connected to
the electrical ground. Replace any worn, cut or
damaged cords. Replace any damaged plugs,
receptacles or connector bodies.
WARNING: Do not cut, remove, or break the
ground terminal. Do not try to fit a three-terminal plug into a receptacle or connector body
that does not fit the plug, see your Authorized
Clarke Dealer to get an authorized person to
make the connection.
WARNING: Do not move the machine over an
electrical cord. Always lift the cord over the
machine.
EXTENSION CORDS:
Use only an approved extension cord with three conductors,
a plug with three terminals and a connector body with three
holes. This machine has a power cord with wire size 18
AWG (AWG means American Wire Gauge).
WARNING: If you use an extension cord, use an
extension cord with minimum wire size 16 AWG.
Do not use an extension cord longer than 50
feet. Do not join two extension cords.

BRUSH PERFORMANCE INDICATOR LIGHTS
The D14 and D18 upright vacuums have 3 brush performance indicator lights (see figure 25). They are GREEN,
YELLOW and RED. They work in the following manner:
Normal Operation:
• The GREEN light is on when the brush drive motor is
on and the brush height setting is correct for the
carpet.
NOTE: It is normal for the red or yellow light to intermittently turn on and off as high or low surfaces are
encountered.
Brush Height Too High:
• The YELLOW light will continue to stay on when the
brush height is too high for the carpet. Lower the
brush height setting.
Figure 25
Brush Height Too Low or Brush Has Jammed:
• The RED light will continue to stay on when the brush
height setting is too low for the carpet. Raise the
brush height setting. The RED light will come on if the
brush is jammed.
• If the RED light is on continuously for 10 seconds, the
electronic safety stop will protect the brush motor by
turning it off.
• To reset the brush drive motor, put the operating
handle in the upright position. Turn the ON/OFF
switch to the off position. Restart the machine.
• If the brush height was too low, raise the brush height
setting.
• If the brush was jammed, unplug the vacuum and clear
the brush.
