IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Important information for users in the UK:
The wires in the mains lead of this appliance are coloured in accordance with
the following code:
BLUE - neutral
BROWN - live
The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this appliance may not correspond with
the coloured makings identifying the terminals in your plug.
PROCEED AS FOLLOWS:
The wire which is coloured BROWN must be connected to the terminal which is
marked L or coloured RED.
The wire which is coloured BLUE must be connected to the terminal which is marked
N or coloured BLACK.
VERY IMPORTANT:
Neither wire is to be connected to the earth terminal of a 3-pin plug If a 13 amp plug
is fitted, fit a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse. If any other type of plug is used, protect with a
15 amp fuse at the distribution board.
For appliances which come with a mains lead and plug moulded on; the plug moulded
on to the cord incorporates a fuse.
For replacement, use a 13 amp BS 1362 fuse.
Only ASTA approved or certified fuses should be used.
The fuse cover/carrier must be replaced in the even of changing the fuse.
The plug must not be used if the fuse cover/carrier is lost. A replacement cover/carrier
must be obtained from authorised electrical goods retailers.
WARNING! Should it become necessary to replace the moulded-on plug then
the defective plug should be destroyed to avoid any possible shock hazard that could
occur should such a plug be inserted into a 13 amp socket elsewhere in the house.
Please remove the fuse from the old plug.

SPECIAL FEATURES
EDGE CLEANING FEATURE
The edge cleaning feature provides
improved cleaning of carpets along walls
and furniture.
MOTOR PROTECTOR
This vacuum has a motor protector
by-pass valve which automatically opens
to provide cooling air to the motor when a
clog prevents the normal flow of air. If the
by-pass valve opens to prevent motor
overheating and possible damage to the
vacuum, a change of sound will be noticed
as air rushes through the valve opening. If
this occurs, turn the vacuum off and
unplug the power cord from the outlet.
Then check for blockage as described
under the BLOCKAGE REMOVAL section.
Motor
Protector
The motor protector by-pass valve may
open when using attachments or when
cleaning new carpet, due to reduced air
flow caused by the attachments
themselves or by new carpet reduce filling
the dust container quickly.
