IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER.
WARNING
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.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
• 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 centre before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close a 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 air flow.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brushroll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings
and moving parts.
• Do not place cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brushroll may cause damage. Place cleaner on floor with the handle in storage position while
using attachments.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without the dust cup or filter(s) in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive belt.
• 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.
PLEASE SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
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 cleaner.
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 instructions.
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 pedal
once 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 60 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 60 minute period, plug the cleaner back in
and push the on/off switch On (I). If the cleaner still does not run, please call Electrolux Customer Care.
2
BEFORE YOU START
CHECK THE VOLTAGE
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.
CONNECTING TO YOUR ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
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.
If difficulty is experienced in obtaining a replacement, contact Electrolux Customer Services on 08706 055055.
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-andyellow. 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 guarantee.

SERVICE
Should you require service on your Electrolux cleaner, please telephone Electrolux Customer Services on 08706 055055. Before requesting service,
please check whether your problem is covered under Service Checklist (see below).
New filter pads, brushrolls and drive belts can be obtained from Electrolux Retailers. If difficulty is experienced in obtaining spares, please contact
Electrolux on 08706 055055.
SERVICE CHECKLIST
• 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 on 08706 055055.
• 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.
Spares
New filters, brushrollers and drive belts can be obtained from Authorised Electrolux Dealers and electrical retailers. If difficulty is experienced in
obtaining spares please call us on 08706 055055 or visit our website at www.shop.electrolux.co.uk

WARNING: Avoid injury. Keep loose clothing, hair, fingers, and all
other parts of body away from any moving part (such as
the revolving brush). Turn off the switch and unplug the
cleaner before changing the cleaner height setting.
ON/OFF Switch. International symbol I means On, International symbol O
means Off (FIG. 7).
Handle Release (FIG. 8). Step on handle release to pull handle back to a
comfortable operating position. To lower handle completely to the floor
(FIG. 9), depress handle release a second time.
Helpful Information:
Before cleaning under low furniture, check area first for objects that
might harm the unit or block the vacuum hose.
Cleaner Height Setting. An adjustment that raises or lowers the cleaner
base to match the type of floor surface. With the cleaner cord unplugged,
set the adjustment to lowest setting for maximum carpet cleaning. If the
cleaner is difficult to push, move adjustment to next highest setting
until cleaner is comfortable to push. The brushroll must reach the carpet
for effective cleaning. For ease in moving the adjustment knob, place handle
in operating position and tilt cleaner back to remove weight from front
wheels (FIG. 8).
Helpful Information:
Listen to your cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor
or a change in performance, it could simply indicate a common usage or
maintenance issue. Such as, a need to raise or lower the carpet height
adjustment, possible blockage in hose or brushroll area, or a broken or
loose brushroll belt. These are all easy to fix and the instructions are
included in this owner’s guide. Becoming familiar with the information in
this guide will help you to get the best possible performance from your
new cleaner for many years to come.
Note: While using accessories, do not place cleaner on furniture or
steps as the brushroll may cause damage. Place cleaner on
floor with the handle in storage position.
Step 1: To use accessories, place desired accessory into the end of the
hose or wand (FIG.10).
Dusting/Upholstery Brush is for furniture, blinds, books, lamp shades,
shelves, curtains, draperies, cushions and fabrics.
Crevice Wand cleans corners, stairs, baseboards, and between cushions.
Nested Extension Wands to add reach.
Step 1: Grasp both wands near ridges.
Step 2: Pull apart.
Step 3: Turn ridge end to center.
Step 4: Push wands together.
The instructions in the booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance.
To avoid unnecessary service calls, check the top and bottom filters, belt
and brushroll often.
ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
Note: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before
routine maintenance. Never operate the vacuum cleaner
without the top and bottom filters in place.
Note: When vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder,
plaster dust, or similar fine substances, the top and bottom
filters will require more frequent maintenance.
Removing the Dust Cup
Step 1: Remove dust cup by sliding dust cup lever from right to left
(FIG. 11).
Step 2: Grasp dust cup with both hands and pull out (FIG. 12).
Step 3: Empty dust cup into trash.

Top Filter Maintenance (Ref. EF87A)
FIG. 11
FIG. 12
FIG. 13
FIG. 14
FIG. 15
FIG. 16
This new Electrolux Upright uses a cyclone system as a primary filter and
a secondary or top mounted filter that has been moved outside of the dirt
cup. This makes emptying the dirt cup much easier and less messy. It is
normal for this filter to trap fine particles, pet hair, and carpet fuzz. It
should be cleaned periodically depending on vacuuming conditions. For
optimum performance replace it every 12 months.
Step 1: Remove top filter cover by grasping right edge and pivoting to
the left (FIG. 14).
Step 2: Remove filter frame from top filter cover (FIG. 15).
Step 3: Remove foam from filter frame (FIG. 16). Shake filter
frame and foam filter to remove excess dust. If necessary, the
filter frame and foam filter can be rinsed in lukewarm water and
air dried.
Note: The filter frame, foam and cover are not dishwasher
safe.
Step 4: When dry, replace foam filter into filter frame.
Step 5: Replace filter frame into top filter cover. Replace top filter cover
by pivoting back onto cleaner from left to right.
WARNING: Always check that foam filter and frame are correctly
installed in the cover before using vacuum.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE (continued)
Filter Screen
The filter screen is located directly above the dust cup and is easily
removed by turning it counter-clockwise. It should be checked regularly
to ensure an open airway. Reinsert the screen by turning it clockwise
(FIG. 17).
Bottom Filter Maintenance (Ref. EF82)
FIG. 17
Check the bottom filter frequently. For optimum performance, replace
bottom filter every 12 months.
Step 1: Remove the bottom filter cover by grasping the right edge and
pivoting to the left (FIG. 18).
Step 2: Pull filter frame from unit by pulling on tab in center (FIG. 19).
Step 3: On some models, remove filter pad and shake to remove excess
dust. If necessary this pad can be cleaned by vacuuming with
another cleaner (FIG. 20).
Step 4: Replace filter into unit. Replace bottom filter cover by pivoting
back onto cleaner from left to right.
PERIODIC MAINTENANCE
CAUTION: Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before
periodic maintenance. Never operate the vacuum cleaner
without the dust bag or filter assembly in place.
Brushroll
19
FIG. 18
The brushroll turns as it sweeps and combs the carpet nap. Remove hair
and threads from the brushroll so it continues brushing the carpet. To
maintain the most efficient cleaning, the bristles must touch the carpet.
To test the bristle length, hold a ruler against the underneath side of the
cleaner. If the bristles no longer touch the ruler, replace the brushroll.
Brushroll Belt (Ref. ZE090)
The brushroll belt turns the brushroll to agitate, sweep, and comb the
carpet nap. Check the belt regularly to be sure it is in good condition.
Replace the belt if it stretches, cracks or loses tension. Cut away any hair
or threads wound around the brush roll or the belt pulley because the
buildup could cause the belt to rotate unevenly.

Step 1: Firmly pull the end of the hose from the hose retainer on the
hood of the vacuum (FIG. 26).
Step 2: Check for blockages in the hose and hose retainer. Flexing the
hose may help loosen any blockage. If no blockage is found,

replace the hose in the hose retainer. If the blockage is in the
hose retainer and cannot be cleared, continue to step 3.
Step 3: Remove the hood from the cleaner and check for a blockage in
the brushroll area (FIG. 27). Make sure the hose inlet is clear.
If no blockage is found, continue to step 4. After the blockage
is found and cleared, replace the hood on the cleaner.
Step 4: Twist the hose from the coupling elbow on the back of cleaner.
Check for blockages at cleaner opening and in hose (FIG. 28). If a
blockage is found, clear the blockage. The screw attaching the
