 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.
13 AMP
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 connected, that the cable outer insulation extends beyond the cable restraint and that 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.
Disconnect the cleaner from the power supply before servicing, changing accessories, or performing any maintenance.
Use only genuine parts and accessories. Unauthorised parts and accessories may be dangerous and will invalidate your warranty.
Maintain the cleaner in good condition. Use an authorised agent for servicing. Keep machine clean, but DO NOT use solvents.
For dry vacuuming ensure the cartridge filter is firmly in place before operating the cleaner.
DO NOT operate the unit without the cartridge filter in place (except when wet vacuuming). Using the cleaner without a cartridge filter may cause damage to the vacuum cleaner and will invalidate your warranty. 
Wear protective clothing and gloves when appropriate.
DO NOT allow children or untrained persons to operate the cleaner.
DO NOT place attachments close to your face (especially eyes, ears, etc). DO NOT point the hose end at other persons or animals.
DANGER! DO NOT vacuum hot or glowing ash, cigarette ends, inflammable, explosive, corrosive or other dangerous substances.
DO NOT operate the unit without the dust bag or optional cartridge filter (except when wet vacuuming).
DO NOT leave machine running unattended. Turn power supply OFF, and DO NOT leave the vicinity until motor has come to a complete stop. 
DO NOT operate the cleaner while under the influence of drugs, alcohol or impairing medication, or if you are tired.
DO NOT use the cleaner in the rain or in very damp conditions.
DO NOT use the cleaner for a task it is not designed to perform.
When not in use, store the cleaner in a safe, dry, childproof location.
