1.1ELECTRICAL SAFETY
 WARNING! It is the responsibility of the owner and the operator to read, understand and comply with the following:
You must check all electrical products, before use, to ensure that they are safe. You must inspect power cables, plugs, sockets and any other
connectors for wear or damage. You must ensure that the risk of electric shock is minimised by the installation of appropriate safety devices. A
Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) should be incorporated in the main distribution board. We also recommend that a Residual Current
Device (RCD) is used. It is particularly important to use an RCD with portable products that are plugged into a supply which is not protected
by an RCCB. If in any doubt consult a qualified electrician. You may obtain a Residual Current Device by contacting your Sealey dealer.
You must also read and understand the following instructions concerning electrical safety.
1.1.1The Electricity at Work Act 1989 requires that all portable electrical appliances, if used on business premises, are tested by a qualified electrician, using a Portable Appliance Tester (PAT), at least once a year.
1.1.2The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 makes owners of electrical appliances responsible for the safe condition of those appliances and the safety of the appliance operators. If in any doubt about electrical safety, contact a qualified electrician.
1.1.3 Ensure that the insulation on all cables and on the appliance is safe before connecting it to the power supply. See 1.1.1. and 1.1.2. and use a Portable Appliance Tester.
1.1.4 Ensure that cables are always protected against short circuit and overload.
1.1.5Regularly inspect power supply cables and plugs for wear or damage and check all connections to ensure that none are loose.
1.1.6 Important: Ensure that the voltage marked on the appliance matches the power supply
to be used and that the plug is fitted with the correct fuse - see fuse rating at right.
1.1.7 DO NOT pull or carry the appliance by the power cable.
1.1.8 DO NOT pull the plug from the socket by the cable.
1.1.9 DO NOT use worn or damaged cables, plugs or connectors. Immediately have any faulty
item repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician. When a BS 1363/A UK 3 pin plug is damaged, cut the cable just above the plug and dispose of the plug safely.
Fit a new plug according to the following instructions (UK only).
a)Connect the GREEN/YELLOW earth wire to the earth terminal ‘E’.
b)Connect the BROWN live wire to the live terminal ‘L’.
c)Connect the BLUE neutral wire to the neutral terminal ‘N’.
d)After wiring, check that there are no bare wires, that all wires have been correctly RECOMMENDED FUSE RATING
connected, that the cable outer insulation extends beyond the cable restraint and that 13 AMP
the restraint is tight.
Double insulated products, which are always marked with this symbol
, are fitted with live (brown) and neutral (blue) wires only. To rewire, connect the wires as indicated above - DO NOT connect either wire to the earth terminal.
1.1.10 Products which require more than 13 amps are supplied without a plug. In this case you must contact a qualified electrician to ensure that a suitably rated supply is available. We recommend that you discuss the installation of an industrial round pin plug and socket with your electrician.
1.1.11If an extension reel is used it should be fully unwound before connection. A reel with an RCD fitted is preferred since any appliance plugged into it will be protected. The cable core section is important and should be at least 1.5mm², but to be absolutely sure that the capacity of the reel is suitable for this product and for others which may be used in the other output sockets, we recommend the use of 2.5mm² section cable.

6.4.
Verify that the switch is in the ‘O’ position before plugging in the mains cable (Fig.4.4).
6.5.
Turn the motor on by flipping the switch to the “I” position (Fig.4.5).
6.6.
After use, flip the switch to the “O” position and unplug the power cord (Fig.4.6), then empty and dry the container (Fig.4.7).
Remember! The foam filter must be removed after wet vacuuming, and a dust filter must be installed before dry vacuuming again.
IMPORTANT! When vacuuming large quantities of liquids, do not immerse the nozzle completely in the liquid; leave a gap at the tip of the
nozzle opening to allow air inflow. The machine is fitted with a float valve that stops the suction action when the container reaches its maximum
capacity. You will notice an increase in motor speed. When this happens, turn off the machine, disconnect from the mains, and drain the liquid
into a suitable receptacle or drain. To continue vacuuming, refit the container with the container. After wet vacuuming, turn the machine off and
remove the plug. Empty the container, clean and dry the inside and outside before storage.
