4.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they
do not play with the appliance.
5.
This appliance is not intended for use by persons

or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and
knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or
instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety.
6.
Use only as described in this manual. Only use Vax
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

around sharp edges or corners. Do not run the

WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet 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
outlet, 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: Clearing blockages.
!
IMPORTANT: Washing filters maintains vacuum
performance. Vax 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.
!
IMPORTANT: The motor is equipped with a thermal
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 outlet
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 outlet and switch back
on.

This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use
only and NOT for commercial or industrial use.
PLEASE KEEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR FURTHER USE.
