IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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:
1. Do not leave the vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Unplug it from the outlet
when not in use and before servicing.
2. Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
3. Do not allow it to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used
by or near children or infirmed persons.
4. Use only as described in this manual. Use only the manufacturer's
recommended attachments.
5. Do not use with a damaged cord or plug. If the vacuum cleaner is not working
as it should, or if it has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors or dropped into
water, return to FANTOM at 178 West Service Rd., Champlain, NY 12919.
6. Do not pull or carry by the cord, use the cord as a handle, close a door on the
cord, or pull the cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not run the vacuum
cleaner over the cord. Keep the cord away from heated surfaces.
7. Do not unplug by pulling on the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
8. Do not handle the plug or the vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
9. Do not put any objects into the openings. Do not use with any opening
blocked: keep free of dust, lint, hair and anything that may reduce air flow.
10. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all the parts of your body away from
openings and moving parts.
11. Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes,
matches or hot ashes.
12. Do not use without dust compartment and filters in place.
13. Turn off all controls before unplugging.
14. Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
15. Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or
use in areas where they may be present.
1
16. Do not touch the agitator while it is spinning.
17. Do not place any heavy items on top of the vacuum cleaner.
18. Do not step on the hose or pull it too strongly.
19. Do not pick up items such as pieces of waste paper or cloth which look as
though they may cause the hose to become blocked.
20. Do not clean or store the vacuum cleaner in places where there are high
temperatures.
21. Store the vacuum cleaner away from excessive humidity.
22. When carrying the vacuum cleaner, hold it by the carrying handle.
23. Before servicing the vacuum cleaner, allow all metal parts to cool first.
24. Always place foot on handle release when adjusting the handle position
of the vacuum cleaner.
25. If the supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must only be replaced by
FANTOM, because special purpose tools are required.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use only.
Note to user concerning attachment plug:
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 in 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.
