Do not leave your Dyson cleaner with the plug connected to a mains outlet – unplug when not in use. Turn the cleaner off with the switch button before removing from the mains outlet. 2. Always remove the plug from a mains outlet before carrying out any maintenance. Do not carry out any maintenance work on the cleaner other than that outlined in this manual, especially where electrical components are concerned. IMPORTANT Check that your supply corresponds to that shown on the rating plate. The appliance must only be used as rated, it should be fitted with an ASTA approved fuse to BS1362. European conformity information A sample of this product has been tested and found to be in conformity with the following European Directives: 73/23/EEC Low voltage (safety) Directive, 93/68/EEC CE Marketing Directive and 89/336/EEC EMC Directive. For your convenience this appliance is supplied with a plug which is fitted with a 13amp fuse of the appropriate rating. Never put the plug into the socket outlet without the fuse cover fitted. Replacement fuse covers are available from Dyson Customer Care. If the plug supplied is not suitable for your socket outlet, it should be cut off and destroyed/safely disposed of. Warning: Under no circumstances should the severed plug be inserted into a 13A socket, serious danger of electric shock would result from the exposed wires. The mains lead can then be shortened to the minimum required length, suitably prepared and the correct style of plug to suit your household wiring system should be fitted. The following wiring instructions should be followed. If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician. Unwanted products and the environment Should you find that your product needs replacing one day, or is of no further use to you, think of protecting the environment. Dyson will accept your old products and recycle them in an environmentally friendly way. The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance with the following codes. Brown – Live Blue – Neutral As the colours of the wires in the mains lead may not correspond with the colours or markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows: The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured Black. 3. Do not use without the clear bin assembly fitted correctly and both filters in place. 4. Do not fit anything other than Dyson spare parts (available on the Helpline on 01666 827272). Use of non-Dyson parts could invalidate your guarantee. The wire that is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured Red. Neither wire should be connected to the earth terminal of a three pin plug which is marked with the letter E or or coloured Green or Green and Yellow. 5. Do not continue to use the cleaner if any part appears to be faulty, missing or damaged. In these cases, contact the Dyson Helpline on 01666 827272. Always ensure that the cable clamp is fitted and that it clamps the cable outer and NOT the coloured wires. 6. If the supply cord of the appliance is damaged, disconnect the appliance from the socket outlet immediately. The supply cord must be replaced and only by Dyson Appliances Ltd. or their appointed agent as special purpose tools and service techniques are required. Do not put any part of the body, clothes or any object near or into the openings or moving parts of the machine. Do not use the machine with any of the openings blocked with any object that may restrict the airflow. 7. Do not pull on the supply cord, run over it or pull it around sharp edges or near/over hot surfaces. If damaged, call the Dyson Helpline. Do not handle the cleaner or plug with wet hands. 8. Do not use the cleaner if the cord or plug are damaged or if the cleaner has been damaged, dropped or has come into contact with water or any other liquid. In these cases, contact the Helpline. 9. Do not use the cleaner to pick up water or any other liquid. Electrical shocks could occur if used outdoors or on wet surfaces. 10. Do not use the cleaner to pick up flammable or combustible substances or hot ashes or burning objects of any kind. Do not use near such substances. 11. Do not work below the cleaner on the stairs. 12. Do not immerse the whole cleaner in water for cleaning. The clear bin alone may be washed out after emptying. Ensure this is completely dry before using the cleaner again. 13. Static charge can occur in many ways and, when vacuuming, certain carpets may generate small static charges in the clear bin. These are entirely harmless and are not associated with the mains supply. To minimise any effect from this, do not put your hand or insert any object into the clear bin unless you have first emptied and rinsed out the clear bin with water.
