IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electric 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 operate the vacuum cleaner or charger that has been damaged in any way.
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.
• To avoid excessive heat and damage to the unit or batteries, do not operate the
vacuum cleaner while in the charging stand.
• 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 the charger provided to recharge; Eureka model 351U-1025-1A for 120
volt.
• Do not pull or carry the charger by cord, use cord as a handle, close a door on cord,
or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the charger, not the cord.
• Do not handle charger or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
• DO NOT MUTILATE OR INCINERATE BATTERIES AS THEY WILL EXPLODE AT
HIGH TEMPERATURES.
• Leaks from battery cells can occur under extreme usage or temperature conditions.
If the liquid gets on the skin (1) wash quickly with soap and water or (2) neutralize
with a mild acid such as lemon juice or vinegar. If the liquid gets into the eyes, flush
them immediately with clean water for a minimum of 10 minutes. Seek medical
attention.
• The terminal on the vacuum cleaner should be kept free and clean of objects. While
there is no shock hazard from the terminal, a burn could occur if metal objects are
inserted into the terminal area.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction. 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 a filter in place. When servicing the unit, never put fingers or
other objects into the fan chamber in case the unit would accidentally be turned on.
• 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.
• Locate the wall bracket and charger indoors in a cool, dry area not exposed to the
weather to avoid electrical shock and/or cleaner damage.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.

N’utilisez pas l’aspirateur à l’extérieur ou sur une surface mouillée.
N’utilisez jamais l’aspirateur ou le chargeur s’ils ont été endommagés. Si l’aspirateur
ne fonctionne pas comme il le faut, s’il a été échappé, s’il a été endommagé, s’il a
été laissé à l’exterieur, s’il a été échappé dans de l’eau, retournez-le à un centre de
service avant de l’utiliser.
Pour éviter que l’aspirateur surchauffe, ou que l’aspirateur ou les piles soient
endommagés, n’utilisez pas l’aspirateur lorsqu’il est encore dans son support de
recharge.
Ne permittez pas que l’aspirateur soit utilisé comme un jouet. Une attention particulière
est nécessaire lorsqu’il est utilisé par ou près d’un enfant.
Suivez les recommandations d’utilisation de ce manuel.
Pour recharger l’aspirateur, utilisez uniquement le chargeur qui l’accompagne –
Eureka modèle nº 351U-1025-1A pour 120 volt.
Ne pas tirer l’aspirateur ou le transporter par le cordon. Ne pas utiliser le cordon en
guise de poignée. Ne pas fermer une porte sur le cordon ou tirer le cordon sur des
bordures ou des coins pointus. Tenir le cordon à distance des surfaces chauffantes.
Ne pas utiliser des rallonges ou des prises qui n’ont pas une capacité suffisante
pour transporter le courant.
Ne pas débrancher en tirant sur le cordon. Pour débrancher, empoignez le chargeur
et non pas le cordon.
Ne pas manipuler le chargeur ou l’aspirateur avec les mains mouillées.
NE PAS MUTILER OU INCINERER LES PILES. LES PILES EXPLOSENT A DES
TEMPERATURES EXCESSIVES.
Il peut y avoir des fuites des éléments des piles lorsque celles-ci sont soumises à
des conditions d’emploi excessif ou de température excessive. Si le liquide touche
la peau (1) laver tout de suite la peau avec de l’eau et du savon (2) Neutraliser avec
un acide doux, tel que le jus de citron ou le vinaigre. Au cas de contact avec les
yeux, nettoyer à grande eau pour un minimum de 10 minutes. Cherchez des soins
médicaux.
La borne de l’aspirateur doit être maintenue propre et libre de tout autre objet. Il n’y
a aucun risque de choc électrique de la borne elle-même, mais une brûlure est
possible si des objets en métal sont introduits dans la borne.
Cet aspirateur crée de la succion. Tenir les parties mobiles et les ouvertures loin des
cheveux, des habits, des doigts et de toute partie du corps.
Ne pas ramasser des objets qui brûlent ou fument comme des cigarettes, des
allumettes ou les cendres chaudes.
Ne pas utiliser sans que le filtre ne soit installé. Lors de réparations ou d’entretien, il
ne faut jamais mettre les doigts, ou autres objets, près du ventilateur dans le cas où
l’aspirateur serait accidentalement mis en marche.
Portez une attention particulière lorsque vous nettoyez les escaliers.
Ne pas utiliser pour ramasser des liquides inflammables ou combustibles comme de
l’essence. Ne pas utiliser dans les endroits où ces liquides pourraient être présents.
Situez le support pour l’aspirateur à l’intérieur, dans un endroit frais, sec et protégé
pour éviter le choc électrique ou les dommages.
Travaillez toujours dans un endroit bien éclairé.
Débranchez les appareils électriques avant de les nettoyer avec l’aspirateur.

GENERAL INFORMATION
The cordless vacuum cleaner is the answer for quick, convenient, and easy cleanups.
Grab the cleaner for little tasks rather than using a larger cleaner. Place the wall bracket
in any area of easy access that allows versatile cleaning of kitchen crumbs, or steps.
Always store the cleaner in the wall bracket to provide a ready charge.
Charge for 14-16 hours before first use.
Batteries could lose charge in shipping.
It is best to charge the batteries when temperatures are between 32°F (0°C) and 104°F
(40°C). Other temperatures could damage batteries.
While charging, the charger may become warm to the touch. This is a normal condition
and does not indicate a problem.
