Understanding Safety Terminology
DANGER: If safety information is not followed, someone will be seriously injured or killed.
WARNING: If safety information is not followed, someone could be seriously injured or killed.
CAUTION: If safety information is not followed, someone may be injured.
When using this Wet/Dry Vacuum follow basic safety precautions including the following:
WARNING - To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• Do not run the Wet/Dry Vacuum unattended.
• Do not vacuum, or use this Wet/Dry Vacuum near liquids, gases, or explosive vapours like gasoline or
similar fuels, lighter fluid, cleaners, oil based paints, natural gas or hydrogen. Do not vacuum or use this
Wet/Dry Vacuum near explosive dusts like coal dust, magnesium dust, grain dust, or gun powder as
sparks inside the motor can ignite flammable vapours or dust.
• Do not vacuum burning or smoking items such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Keep the cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not expose to rain. Store indoors.
• Do not unplug by pulling on the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Do not use if the cord, plug or other parts are damaged.
• If the Wet/Dry Vacuum is not working correctly or has missing parts, has been dropped or damaged, left
outdoors or dropped in water, return it to an authorized service centre.
• Do not pull or carry by the cord. Do not 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 Wet/Dry Vacuum over the cord.
• Do not handle the plug or the Wet/Dry Vacuum with wet hands.
• To reduce the risk of health hazards from vapours or dusts, do not vacuum toxic materials.
• Do not use or store near hazardous materials.
• Do not use this Wet/Dry Vacuum with a torn filter or without installing the filter except when vacuuming
liquids as described in the operation section of this manual.
• Do not use the Wet/Dry Vacuum as a toy. Pay particularly close attention when it is being used by or
near children.
• To reduce the risk of injury from the Wet/Dry Vacuum accidentally starting, unplug the power cord
before changing or cleaning the filter.
• Do not leave the Wet/Dry Vacuum unattended when it is plugged in. Unplug it from the power outlet
when not in use and before servicing. Turn off the Wet/Dry Vacuum before unplugging.
• Do not put any objects into the ventilation openings. Do not vacuum with any ventilation openings
blocked.
• Keep free of dust, lint, hair or any other items that may reduce the air flow.
• Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all body parts away from openings and moving parts.
• To reduce the risk of falling, use extra care when cleaning on stairs.

SAFETY WARNINGS
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

SAFETY WARNINGS
When using as blower:
• Direct air discharge only at work area.
• Do not direct air at bystanders.
• Do not use near children.
• Do not use blower for any purpose other than blowing dirt and debris.
• Do not use Wet/Dry Vacuum as a sprayer.
This Wet/Dry Vacuum is double-insulated, eliminating the need for a separate grounding system. Use
only identical replacements parts. Read the servicing instructions before servicing the Wet/Dry Vacuum.
Use this Wet/Dry Vacuum only as described in this manual.
Observe the following warnings that appear on the motor housing of this Wet/Dry Vacuum.
DOUBLE-INSULATED. GROUNDING NOT REQUIRED. WHEN SERVICING USE ONLY IDENTICAL
REPLACEMENT PARTS.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not expose to rain. Store indoors.
WARNING: For your own safety, read and understand this instruction manual. Do not
operate unattended. Do not use this Wet/Dry Vacuum to pick up hot ashes, coals, toxic,
flammable or other hazardous materials. Do not use near explosive liquids or vapours.
CAUTION:
Do not vacuum drywall dust or cold fireplace soot or ash with a standard Wet/Dry filter. This
dust is very fine and hence will not be captured by the filter and may cause damage. Refer to
the operation section for proper filter selection.
WARNING: SERVICING OF THE DOUBLE-INSULATED WET/DRY VACUUM
In a double-insulated Wet/Dry Vacuum, two systems of insulation are provided instead of
grounding. No method of grounding is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor
should one be added. Servicing a double-insulated Wet/Dry Vacuum requires extreme
care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified service
personnel. Replacement parts for a double-insulated Wet/Dry Vacuum must be identical
to the parts that are being replaced. This Wet/Dry Vacuum is marked with the words
‘DOUBLE INSULATED’ and the symbol
(square within a square) may also be marked
on the appliance.
• For household use only.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, unplug before cleaning or servicing.
• DO NOT use without filters in place.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock, use indoors only.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury from moving parts, unplug before servicing.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS – WET VACUUMING
BEFORE STARTING
WARNING!
Ensure to read, understand, and apply the safety instructions in Section 1.
Reminder: DO NOT vacuum hazardous substances.
1. Ensure that the power cord is disconnected from the power outlet. Ensure that the tank
is clean and free of dust and dirt (figure 1).
2. Remove the cartridge filter and dust bag. Install a foam filter over the filter basket and place the top
section back on the tank (figure 2). DO NOT use the cartridge filter for wet materials.
3. Fit the desired nozzle to the vacuum hose (figure 3).
4. Ensure that the switch is in the “O” position before plugging the power cord into the power outlet
(figure 4).
5. Turn the motor on by flipping the switch to the “I” position (figure 5).
6. After use, flip the switch to the “O” position and unplug the power cord, then empty and dry the tank.
(figure 6, figure 7, figure 8).
When vacuuming large quantities of liquid from a sink or container, etc., do not immerse the nozzle
completely into the liquid; leave a gap at the top of the nozzle opening to allow for air inflow. The machine
is fitted with a float valve that stops the suction action when the tank reaches its maximum capacity. An
increase in motor speed will be noticed. When this occurs, turn off the machine, disconnect from the
power supply, remove the head from the tank and empty the liquid into a suitable receptacle or drain. To
continue vacuuming, refit the head and proceed. After wet vacuuming, turn the machine off and remove
the plug from the power supply. Empty the tank and clean and dry the inside and the outside before storage.
Remember! The foam filter must be removed after wet vacuuming and a cartridge filter must be installed
before dry vacuuming again.

WARNING! Always disconnect the plug from the wall power outlet before removing the tank cover.
NOTICE! This filter is made of high quality paper designed to stop small particles of dust. The filter should
be used for dry pick-up. It is necessary to use a dry filter to pick up dust as a wet filter will clog quickly
and will be very difficult to clean. Handle the filter with care when removing it for cleaning or during
installation. Check the filter for tears or small holes as even a small hole can allow dust to pass through
and out of the cleaner. Do not use a filter with holes or tears, replace it immediately.
INSTALLATION AND CLEANING
1. Slide cartridge filter down over filter cage (figure 1 & 2).
2. Place retainer on top of cartridge filter against hole of basket (figure 3).
3. Hold lid assembly and turn retainer clockwise until tight. Ensure that there is no gap between filter and
lid assembly (figure 4).
4. To remove filter for cleaning again, hold lid assembly with one hand and turn retainer
counter-clockwise (figure 5).
5. Slide cartridge filter off filter cage (figure 6).
6. Clean filter by tapping it on inside of trash can (figure 7).
7. Clean filter by rinsing from the inside (figure 7).
8. When wet (to prevent mold and/or mildew build-up), the cartridge filter should be moved and allowed
to air dry for a 24-hour period before being re-installed back onto the filter cage.
