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. 13 Amp Fuse Fuse Cover Fuse Blue Brown Cord Clamp 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. 3 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.
