IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following:
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:
• Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.
• Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord when not in use and
before servicing.
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
• Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
• Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left
outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.
• Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close a door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not
run vacuum cleaner over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.
• Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
• Turn off all controls before unplugging.
• Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
• Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
• Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may
reduce airflow.
• This vacuum cleaner creates suction and contains a revolving brush roll. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of
body away from openings and moving parts.
• Do not place cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage. Place cleaner on floor with the handle in
storage position while using attachments.
• Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not use without cyclonic dust cup or filter(s) in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive
belt.
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.
• Store your cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Your vacuum cleaner is double insulated. This means that all external parts are electrically insulated from
the mains. This is done by placing insulation barriers between the electrical and mechanical components,
making it unnecessary for the cleaner to be earthed.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
2
BEFORE YOU START
CHECK THE VOLTAGE
First check the voltage shown on the data plate (see rear view) to make sure that the cleaner is of the correct voltage for your
electricity supply. If it is not, do not use the cleaner but refer back to your dealer.
CONNECTING TO YOUR ELECTRICITY SUPPLY
Permanently connected to the cleaner is a mains supply (2-core) cable fitted with a non-rewirable plug incorporating a 13A fuse.
In the event of the fuse requiring replacement the fuse cover should be removed using a small screwdriver. The old fuse MUST be
replaced by a 13A ASTA approved BS1362 fuse or a BSI approved fuse. The cover must be replaced before the plug is used again.
In the event of loss of the fuse cover, replacements can be obtained from your Electrolux Retailers and must be of the same colour
as indicated by the coloured insert on the base of the plug.
If difficulty is experienced in obtaining a replacement, contact Electrolux on 08706 055055.
In no circumstances must the plug be used without a correct fuse cover fitted.
If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for your socket outlet, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted.
Remove the fuse from the cut off plug.
The cut off plug should then be disposed of to prevent the hazard of shocks in case it should be plugged into a 13 amp socket in
another part of your home.
The wires in the mains cable of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code: Blue: Neutral. Brown: Live.
As the colours of the wires in the mains cable of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals
in your plug, proceed as follows:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter N or coloured black.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter L or coloured red.
If using a three-pin plug, do not make any connection to the terminal marked with the letter E or by the earth symbol or coloured green
or green-and-yellow. This cleaner is double insulated and no earth connection is necessary.
It is in your interest to ensure that the plug is correctly attached to the mains cable. In case of doubt, have it done by a qualified
electrician, as Electrolux cannot regard the repair of faults on the plug connection as a service that can be given free of charge under
the terms of the guarantee.

WARNING
The brush in the cleaning head rotates at high speed and can cause damage to the mains supply cable if the cleaner passes
over it during cleaning operations.
Care should be taken to ensure that this does not happen. If the cleaning head has accidentally passed over the mains supply cable
the following action should be taken:
1. Switch off and remove the plug from the socket outlet.
2. Examine the mains supply cable for damage (only after removing the plug from the socket outlet).
3. If there is any sign of damage to the supply cable it MUST be renewed. The repair MUST be carried out by an Electrolux Service
Agent or a similar qualified person.
4. NEVER use the machine with a damaged mains supply cable.
Proprietary carpet conditioning and air freshening materials
After using proprietary carpet conditioning powders, it is recommended that the dust cup or filters be changed. Some of these
preparations contain substances which if left in the vacuum cleaner for extended periods could damage the plastic mouldings which
form the structure of the cleaner.
Many air fresheners, household deodorants, sprays and polishes contain a highly flammable gas propellant.
Because of this, it is particularly important that these products are used strictly in accordance with the relevant manufacturer’s
instructions.
It is essential that none of the above products are sprayed directly into the vacuum cleaner or any of its filters, hose assembly, dust
cup chamber or dust cup.
Thermal Cut Off
This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the cleaner in case of motor overheating. If the cleaner suddenly shuts off, push the
switch pedal once and unplug the cleaner. Check the cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a full bag, a blocked hose or clogged
filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before attempting to use the cleaner. After the 30 minute period, plug the
cleaner back in and turn on the switch. If the cleaner still does not run, please call Electrolux on 08706 055055.

SERVICE
Should you require service on your Electrolux cleaner, please telephone 08706 055055. Before requesting service, please
check whether your problem is covered under Service Checklist (see below).
New filter pads, brush rollers and drive belts can be obtained from Electrolux Dealers. If difficulty is experienced in obtaining
spares, please contact 08706 055055.
SERVICE CHECKLIST
• If your cleaner will not operate, check the plug connection, plug fuse and mains fuse.
• Never allow the dust cup to become so full that it impedes the air-flow, thus reducing the cleaning efficiency of the
machine. The character of household dust and its effect on the air-flow through the machine may vary considerably. Fluffy
dust allows air to pass through readily whereas fine powdery dust or proprietary cleaning powders, pack tightly in the
dust cup, offering greater resistance to air-flow and will reduce cleaning efficiency if it becomes overloaded.
• Always store your cleaner in a dry place.
• Renew the filter pads three or four times a year. This is essential to ensure continued high filtration of dust particles.
• Sucking up such items as stockings, clippings of cloth, sizeable pieces of paper, wrappings from cigarette packets or
sweets etc., may block the hose. Electrolux regrets that the clearing of blocked hoses cannot be regarded as service
that can be given free of charge, under the guarantee. Should a blockage occur, first disconnect the cleaner from the
electricity supply, refer to section headed “Blockages.” If these operations are not successful, contact 08706 055055.
• Never pick up hot cinders or lighted cigarette ends.
• Make certain that your cleaner does not come into contact with water or any other liquid. It is not designed as
a wet pick up cleaner, and must never be used on damp carpets or wet floors.
Important - in the event of the mains supply cable of this vacuum cleaner requiring replacement, we recommend that this
be carried out by a Electrolux Service Agent.

Maintenance of Dirt Alert Feature (On some models)
The dirt alert sensor uses infra-red technology to indicate whether or not floors are clean. When debris breaks the light beam,
the red light comes on indicating additional cleaning is needed in this area. If there is no break in the light beam, the floor is
clean and no light will come on.
When using your new vacuum you may be cleaning deep down hidden dirt missed by your old vacuum causing the light to
stay red longer. With frequent cleaning, after the first few times you use your new Electrolux vacuum, the red light should go
on less.
NOTE: The dirt alert feature is not intended to be used for above the floor cleaning with attachments.
The red light indicates dirt, dust, etc. is still being removed from
the area being cleaned.
How to Check the Dirt Alert Sensors
To check if dirt sensor is working properly.
1. While the red light is on, tip the vacuum backwards
on rear wheels, lifting the brush roll off the carpet a
couple of inches.

HOW TO MAINTAIN (continued)
Brush Roll
The brush roll turns as it sweeps and combs the carpet nap.
Remove hair and threads from the brush roll so it continues
brushing the carpet. To maintain the most efficient cleaning, the

ruler against the underneath side of the cleaner. If the bristles
no longer touch the ruler, replace the brush roll.
Brush Roll Belt
The brush roll belt turns the brush roll to agitate, sweep, and
comb the carpet nap. Check the belt regularly to be sure it is in
good condition. Replace the belt if it stretches, cracks or loses
tension. Cut away any hair or threads wound around the brush
roll or the belt pulley because the buildup could cause the belt
to rotate unevenly.
How To Replace Brush Roll Belt
