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.

necessary when used by or near children.

left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service
center before using.

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

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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a
polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug
will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not
fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit,
contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do
not change the plug in any way.

picking up hard or sharp objects that could damage the
vacuum cleaner.

Thermal Cut Off
This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects
the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly shuts off, push the on/off switch off (0) 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 push the on/
off switch on (l). If the cleaner still does not run, then take it
to a Eureka Authorized Service Center for repair.

Brush Roll
The brush roll turns as it sweeps and combs the carpet nap.
Remove hair and threads from the brush roll 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 brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt, Style U
The brush roll belt turns the brush roll 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.
