When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord when not in use
and before servicing.
• This appliance is not intended for use by any persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental
capabilities, or lack of experience or knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning
use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
• Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
• Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged,
left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not
run vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
• Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that
may reduce airflow.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts
of body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without dust cup or filter(s) in place.
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.
• Store your cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product may not be treated as household waste.
Instead it shall be handed over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. By
ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and
human health, which could otherwise be caused by inappropriate waste handling of this product. For more detailed information about recycling of this product, please contact your local city office, your household waste disposal service or the shop
where you purchased the product.
Before connecting the cleaner to an electrical supply, ensure that the voltage shown on the rating plate located beneath the
cleaner is of the correct voltage for your electricity supply. If it is not, do not use the cleaner but refer back to your dealer.
Permanently connected to the cleaner is a mains supply (2-core) cable fitted with a non-rewirable plug incorporating a 13A fuse.
In the event of the fuse requiring replacement the fuse cover should be removed using a small screwdriver. The old fuse MUST
be replaced by a 13A ASTA approved BS1362 fuse or a BSI approved fuse. The cover must be replaced before the plug is used
again. In the event of loss of the fuse cover, replacements can be obtained from your Electrolux Retailers and must be of the same
colour as indicated by the coloured insert on the base of the plug.
In no circumstances must the plug be used without a correct fuse cover fitted.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for your socket outlet, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted.
Remove the fuse from the cut off plug.
The cut off plug should then be disposed of to prevent the hazard of shocks in case it should be plugged into a 13 amp socket
in another part of your home.
The wires in the mains cable of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: Blue: Neutral. Brown: Live.
As the colours of the wires in the mains cable of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured 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.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
If using a three-pin plug, do not make any connection to the terminal marked with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured green or
green-and-yellow. This cleaner is double insulated and no earth connection is necessary.
It is in your interest to ensure that the plug is correctly attached to the mains cable. In case of doubt, consult a qualified electrician, as
Electrolux cannot regard the repair of faults on the plug connection as a service that can be given free of charge under the terms of the
13 Amp Fuse
13 Amp
The brush in the cleaning head rotates at high speed and can cause damage to the mains supply cable if the cleaner passes
over it during cleaning operations.
Care should be taken to ensure that this does not happen. If the cleaning head has accidentally passed over the mains supply cable the
following action should be taken:
1. Switch off and remove the plug from the socket outlet.
2. Examine the mains supply cable for damage (only after removing the plug from the socket outlet).
3. If there is any sign of damage to the supply cable it MUST be renewed. The repair MUST be carried out by an Electrolux Service Agent
or a similar qualified person.
4. NEVER use the machine with a damaged mains supply cable.
Proprietary carpet conditioning and air freshening materials
After using proprietary carpet conditioning powders, it is recommended that the filters be changed. Some of these preparations contain
substances which if left in the vacuum cleaner for extended periods could damage the plastic mouldings which form the structure of the
Many air fresheners, household deodorants, sprays and polishes contain a highly flammable gas propellant.
Because of this, it is particularly important that these products are used strictly in accordance with the relevant manufacturer’s
It is essential that none of the above products are sprayed directly into the vacuum cleaner or any of its filters, hose assembly, dustbag
chamber or dust cup.
Thermal Cut Off
This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner switches off, push
the switch to “Off” and unplug the cleaner. Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a full dust cup, a blocked hose
or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30
minute period, plug the cleaner back in and turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, please call Electrolux on 08445 614614.
Calls to this number will be charged at 5p per minute at all times from a BT Landline.
Should you require service on your Electrolux cleaner, please telephone Electrolux Helpline on 08445 614614. Calls to this
number will be charged at 5p per minute at all times from a BT Landline. Before requesting service, please check whether your
problem is covered under Service Checklist (see below). Electrolux will arrange the uplift of the product for repair should no local
service agent be available.
New filters can be obtained from Electrolux Retailers.
• If your cleaner will not operate, check the plug connection, plug fuse and mains fuse.
• Never allow the dust cup to become so full that it impedes the air-flow, thus reducing the cleaning efficiency of the machine.
The character of household dust and its effect on the air-flow through the machine may vary considerably. Fluffy dust allows
air to pass through readily whereas fine powdery dust or proprietary cleaning powders, pack tightly in the dust cup, offering
greater resistance to air-flow and will reduce cleaning efficiency if the cup becomes overloaded.
• Always store your cleaner and spare dust filters in a dry place.
• Renew the filter pads three or four times a year. This is essential to ensure continued high filtration of dust particles.
• Sucking up such items as stockings, clippings of cloth, sizeable pieces of paper, wrappings from cigarette packets or sweets
etc., may block the hose. Electrolux regrets that the clearing of blocked hoses cannot be regarded as service that can be
given free of charge, under the guarantee. Should a blockage occur, first disconnect the cleaner from the electricity supply,
refer to section headed “Blockages”. If these operations are not successful, contact Electrolux Helpline for assistance.
• Never pick up hot cinders or lighted cigarette ends.
• Make certain that your cleaner does not come into contact with water or any other liquid. It is not designed as a wet
pick up cleaner, and must never be used on damp carpets or wet floors.
Important - in the event of the mains supply cable of this vacuum cleaner requiring replacement, we recommend that this be
carried out by Electrolux Service Staff.
New filters can be obtained from Authorised Electrolux Dealers and electrical retailers.
This guarantee is in addition to your statutory and other legal rights.

The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to
routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls,
check the hose, dust cup and dust cup filter often. Clear a
clogged hose, empty the dust cup if it is full, and clean the
dust cup filter when it is dirty.
CAUTION: Turn off the power switch and unplug the
electrical cord before emptying the dust cup
or cleaning the dust cup filter.
CAUTION: Do not use the cleaner without the dust cup
filter properly installed. This can damage the
Hint: Some fine particles can restrict airflow very quickly
and will decrease performance even before the
dust container appears full. For that reason, when
vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder,
plaster dust or similar fine substances, the dust
cup and filter may need cleaning more often.
Dust Cup and Filter
Pull the hose from hose adaptor on cleaner.
Pull back on the power switch to the “open cup” position
and lift dust cup away from cleaner.
Remove dust cup and empty.
Pull the crevice tool out of the base of the cleaner.
The dust cup filter can be cleaned by brushing off over
a waste container. Do not allow to get wet.
The dust cup can be rinsed under running water and
completely dried before replacing on cleaner. We do
not recommend putting it in a dishwasher.
Place the crevice tool on the end of the hose.
When cleaning is completed, store crevice tool back
in the base of the cleaner and replace the hose in the
hose adapter on the cleaner.
Replace dust cup filter in dust cup.
Put bottom edge of dust cup in cleaner as shown above
and rotate down against cleaner firmly. Dust cup latch
will automatically lock.
Brush Roll
The brush roll turns to agitate, sweep and comb the carpet
nap. Check the brush roll regularly to be sure it is in top
condition. Cut away any hair or thread wound around the
brush roll because the build-up could cause the brush roll to
rotate unevenly.
