ORGANISATION.
Do not vacuum up ashes, hot coals and the like,
large fragments of glass and sharp objects.
Don't vacuum up any toner dust, which is used
in printers and copiers for example, because it
is electrically conductive. In addition, it is
possible that it will not be completely filtered out
by the filter system of the wet/dry vacuum
cleaner and can be released into the air via the
exhaust fan.
Never vacuum flammable or poisonous liquids
like petrol, oil, acids, or other volatile
substances.
Don't vacuum up liquids that are hotter than 60°
or any poisonous or flammable dusts.
Never lay the appliance on its side. Pay
particular attention to a horizontal position and
adequate stability on stairs.
Always unplug the appliance after use and
before cleaning or changing the filters or
accessories.
Only trained specialists may make repairs on
electric equipment. Improper repairs could
result in considerable danger to the user.
Do not store the appliance directly beside a hot
oven or radiator.
Children, disabled persons, and the aged are
often not aware of the dangers that can result
from handling electric appliances. The above
mentioned persons and untrained persons must
never work with this electrical appliance.
When cleaning or removing the appliance,
always switch it off. Pull the plug out of the
receptacle, if you are not going to use the
appliance for an extended period of time. Never

Never use the appliance when you are under
the influence of medication, alcohol or drugs, if
you are currently under medical care, or if you
are tired.
Check the appliance and the power cord
regularly for any possible damage. Don't use
damaged appliances.

Unplug the power plug.
After use, empty and dry the tank.
Tip: If you want to vacuum up a large quantity of
liquid from a sink or a tank, please don't put the
entire suction nozzle in the liquid; rather leave a
little space so that some air can also be drawn in
along with the liquid.
The appliance is equipped with a float switch
that will stop the vacuuming when the tank is full.
You will notice that suction has stopped by the
motor now running faster. In this event, switch
the appliance off and unplug it.
Be aware that the full tank can be very heavy. In
this event, place the appliance over a drain and
carefully open the outlet screw. (Fig. 20) The
contents of the tank can now drain out to a great
extent.
Remove the upper section from the tank and
pour the rest of the liquid into a suitable tank or
drain. Then, you can continue vacuuming after
you have replaced the upper section and drain
outlet.
After wet vacuuming, switch off the appliance
and unplug it. Empty the container and clean/dry
it inside and outside before putting it away.
WARNING
After wet vacuuming, please proceed as
described in the section entitled "Dry
Vacuuming" before you dry vacuum again.
