PERFORMANCE FEATURES
Motor protector
Thermal protector
This vacuum has a motor protector bypass
valve which automatically opens to provide
cooling air to the motor when a clog prevents
the normal flow of air to the motor. If the bypass valve opens to prevent motor overheating
and possible damage to the vacuum, you will
notice a change of sound as air rushes through
the valve opening.
This vacuum has a thermal protector which
automatically trips to protect the vacuum from
overheating. If a clog prevents the normal flow
of air to the motor the thermal protector turns
the motor off automatically to allow the motor to
cool in order to prevent possible damage to the
vacuum.
NOTE: Do not block motor protector.
To correct problem: Check for and remove
clogs. See CLOG REMOVAL section.
NOTE: The motor protector may open when
using attachments or when cleaning new
carpet, due to reduced airflow caused by the
attachments themselves or by new carpet fuzz
filling the dust bin quickly.
To correct problem: If this occurs, turn the
vacuum off and unplug the power cord from the
outlet to allow the vacuum to cool.
Check for and remove clogs, if necessary.
Wait approximately thirty(30)minutes and plug
the vacuum in and turn back on to see if the
motor protector has reset. The thermal
protector system will not reset untill the vacuum
has cooled down.
