taken to arrange the cord so that the cord cannot be
tripped over.
5.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons
(including children) with reduced physical, sensory or
mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or

responsible for their safety.
2.

recommended attachments.
7.
Do not use the vacuum cleaner if it has been dropped,
damaged, left outdoors or dropped into water. Do not
use the vacuum cleaner with a damaged cord or plug. If
the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or a recommended Service Agent to avoid
hazard and invalidating the guarantee.
8.
Do not pull or carry by cord. Do not use the cord as a
handle, close a door on the cord or pull cord around
sharp edges or corners. Do not run the vacuum cleaner
over the cord. Keep the cord away from heated
surfaces.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the vacuum
cleaner from the electrical socket before assembling,
opening or emptying the dirt container, or before
connecting/disconnecting the attachments.
!
CAUTION: The vacuum cleaner is a very powerful unit.
Before plugging the cord into the electrical socket,
make sure the switch is in the ‘off’ position.
!
IMPORTANT: If the inlet, hose or telescopic tube is
blocked, switch off the vacuum cleaner and remove
the blockage(s) before re-starting the vacuum cleaner. See
Maintenance:

IMPORTANT: Washing filters maintains vacuum
performance. Hoover recommends that they should
be checked and cleaned periodically (depending on the level
of use). Make sure all filters are completely dry before
inserting back into the vacuum cleaner.

9.
Do not put any objects into openings. Do not use with
any openings blocked and do not restrict air flow. Keep

cut-out. If for any reason the unit should overheat,
the thermostat will automatically turn the unit off. Should
this occur, unplug the vacuum cleaner from the electrical
socket and turn off the switch. Remove dirt container and
empty. Clean filters. Allow the unit to cool for approximately
one (1) hour. To re-start, plug into an electrical socket and
switch back on.
