IMPORTANT SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should
always be followed, including the following:
WARNING! To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• The vacuum is intended for household use only.
• Use the vacuum only as described in this manual.
• Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
Operation
CAUTION!
• This appliance has powerful suction capability. Do not allow
it to be used as a toy and always maintain close attention
when used near children.
• Loose clothing, jewelry and long hair may become entangled
in the suction of the vacuum and cause personal injury.
Always keep loose clothing, jewelry, fingers and all parts of
body away from openings.
• Use of the vacuum with an opening blocked may reduce airflow. Keep all openings free of dust, lint, hair etc. Ensure the
filter bag assembly is in place before use.
• Improper handling of the power cord may result in wiring,
connection damage and potential sparking or shock. Always
follow these instructions when handling the power cord:
1
• Do not pull or carry the vacuum by the cord
• Do not use the cord as a handle
• Do not unplug the vacuum by pulling on the cord
• Do not close a door on the cord
• Do not pull the cord around sharp edges or corners
• Keep the cord away from heated surfaces
• Do not run the vacuum or other appliance over
the cord
Note: A polarized plug has one
rounded prong and one straight
prong. The rounded end goes
into the longest socket slot.
Rounded Prong
• A damaged cord or plug may cause a spark, shock and fire.
Always grasp the plug, not the cord, when unplugging the
vacuum. If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced
by the manufacturer or its service agent or similarly qualified
person in order to avoid a hazard.
• Always check the cord and plug before use. If appliance is
not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center
or call customer service at: U.S.: 1-800-989-3535 Canada:
1-888-676-7325.
• Do not use the vacuum without a motor protection filter
installed.
• If abnormal noise, smell, smoke, breakage or other failure
occurs during operation, you should turn off the switch and
unplug it. Then contact customer service for repair. Do not
attempt to repair it yourself.
• Unplugging the vacuum while the controls are ON may
cause sparking and fire. Turn OFF all controls before
unplugging. Do not leave appliance unattended when
plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before
servicing.
Environment
!
WARNING!
• Use of the vacuum outdoors or on wet surfaces may result in
damage to the appliance and void the warranty. Do not use
outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Using the vacuum with wet hands and on wet surfaces may
result in unexpected shock, slippage and personal injury.
Do not handle the plug or appliance with wet hands or on
wet surfaces.
2
• Use of the vacuum in an enclosed space containing
flammable, explosive materials or toxic vapors may result in
an unexpected spark or fire. Do not use the vacuum in such
an enclosed space. Always check exposed wiring and wire
connections before use.
• Vacuuming burning or smoking objects, flammable or
combustible liquids and toxic material may result in a fire
and personal injury. Do not vacuum burning or smoking
objects, flammable or combustible liquids.
• Use of the vacuum on stairs may cause imbalance, slippage
or tumbling. Always check your balance and ensure your
footing when cleaning on stairs.
IMPORTANT
An internal thermal protector has been used in your vacuum
to prevent overheating if a large item or clog gets caught in the
nozzle or at the opening of the bag.
When the blockage is not removed, the thermal protector
will trip and vacuum will stop running.
If this happens, turn the vacuum OFF and disconnect vacuum
from electrical outlet. Then disconnect nozzle and remove
obstruction. Within 30 minutes the thermal protector will cool
and automatically reset. If vacuum does not operate, allow
additional time for thermal protector to reset.
Note: The canister must remain unplugged during the 30 minute cooling period.

Maintenance
!
WARNING!
• Performing maintenance on the vacuum while it is plugged
into a wall outlet may result in unexpected vacuum
operation, shock and personal injury. Always turn the
vacuum OFF and unplug before performing inspection and
maintenance.
• If the power cord is damaged, it should only be replaced by the
factory or maintenance center or similarly qualified person.
Bag Full Indicator
• The Bag Full Indicator light (C) will turn red when the bag
fills with dirt. There are three conditions that will cause the
indicator light to come on:
1. The bag is full; change the bag.
2. Very fine material (such as powder) have been picked up, clogging the bag pores; change the bag, even if it
is not full.
3. There is a blockage in the nozzle, hose, tools or at the
bag opening; remove the blockage.
NOTE: The bag full indicator is designed to notify the user
when the filter bag is full. If the filter bag is full of pet hair,
carpet fibers, etc., the bag full indicator may not light up due
to sufficient air flow of the filter bag. Discard the used filter
bag and replace with a new one.
CAUTION: The bag full indicator may come on when picking
up fine materials, such as powder, flour or cornstarch. These
materials may seal the pores of the filter bag and cause the
filter bag to burst even though the filter bag is only partially
full of dirt. It is recommended to change the filter bag more
often when removing this type of material.
