Thank you for your purchase of the Sanyo Vacuum Cleaner.
Please read these instructions carefully before using.
A FEW PRECAUTIONS
1. Operating without the filter in place will allow dust to enter the motor and
could damage the vacuum cleaner.
2. Keep the vacuum cleaner away from stoves and other heat sources.
Heat can deform and discolor the plastic parts of the unit.
3. Keep the vacuum cleaner free of insecticides. Do not wipe with benzine,
thinner, petrol or other oils which might cause discoloration or cracking.
To clean the body and hose, dampen a cloth with a mild detergent and
wipe clean.
4. Blocking the suction inlet or allowing the dust to clog the hose will
decrease the efficiency of the motor.
5. Be sure not to push the clamp button while carrying the vacuum cleaner.
6. Never try to vacuum the following objects. They may damage the unit or
cause a fire.
* Wet things, mud, soil, and fluids
* Burning cigarettes
* Needles and razor blades
* Inflammable materials such as gasoline and thinner
7. The following kinds of treatment shorten hose life:
* Bending hose at an acute angle when storing
* Pulling the hose with excessive force
* Placing heavy objects on, or stepping on the hose
8. Pull out the plug from the power source after use. Grasp the plug-not
the cord-when pulling out the plug.
Pulling on the cord may lead to shortcircuiting.
9. Long and continuous use causes the exhaust air and the body of the
vacuum cleaner to become warm. This, however, does not denote
malfunction.
10.When vacuuming places that are very dusty, and also when vacuuming
regularly, empty the dust compartment before it becomes completely
filled.
Frequent emptying lengthens the life of the motor and maintains strong
suction power.
11.If the supply cord of this appliance is damaged, it must only be replaced
by a repair shop appointed by the manufacturer, in order to avoid a
hazard.
12.Do not allow it to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when
used by or near children or infirm persons.
