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.
• This appliance is not intended for use by any persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory 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.
• Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
• 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. Do not use cord as a handle. Do not 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 vacuum cleaner on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage. Use extra care when cleaning
stairs. Place vacuum 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 dust bin and filter in place.
• Belt pulleys can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the
drive belt.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.
• Store your vacuum cleaner indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Unplug before connecting stair and upholstery brush.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
The brush in the cleaning head rotates at high speed and can cause damage to the mains supply cable if the
vacuum 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.
Electrolux Customer Care HELPLINE 08445 614614 Calls to this number will be charged at 5p per minute at all times from a BT Landline.

Before using this vacuum cleaner
Check the voltage
• Remove the fuse from the cut off plug.
Before connecting the vacuum to an electrical supply,
ensure that the voltage shown on the rating plate located
beneath the vacuum is of the correct voltage for your
electricity supply. If it is not, do not use the vacuum but refer
back to your dealer.
• 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.
Connecting to your electricity supply
• Permanently connected to the vacuum 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 Customer Care HELPLINE 08445
614614. Calls to this number will be charged at 5p per
minute at all times from a BT Landline.
• 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.
• 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 vacuum 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, consult 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.

Proprietary carpet conditioning and air freshening materials
After using proprietary carpet conditioning powders, it is recommended that the filters be changed. Some of these
preparations contain substances which if left in the vacuum for extended periods could damage the plastic
mouldings which form the structure of the vacuum.
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 or any of its filters, hose
assembly, dustbag chamber or dustbin.

How to obtain service for your vacuum cleaner
Should you require service on your Electrolux vacuum,
please telephone Electrolux Customer Care HELPLINE
08445 614614. Before requesting service, please check
whether your problem is covered under Service
Checklist (see below). Electrolux will arrange the uplift
of the product for repair should no local service agent
be available.
New filter pads, brush rolls and drive belts can be
obtained from Electrolux Retailers. If difficulty is
experienced in obtaining spares, please contact
Electrolux Customer Care HELPLINE 08445 614614.
Service Checklist
• If your vacuum will not operate, check the plug
connection, plug fuse and mains fuse.
• Never allow the dustbin 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 dustbin,
offering greater resistance to air flow and will reduce
cleaning efficiency if the cup becomes overloaded.
• Always store your vacuum and spare dust filters in a
dry place.
• 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 vacuum from the electricity supply, refer
to section headed “How to Clear a Blockage.” If these
operations are not successful, contact Electrolux
Customer Care HELPLINE 08445 614614.
• Never pick up hot cinders or lighted cigarette ends.
• Make certain that your vacuum does not come into
contact with water or any other liquid. It is not
designed as a wet pick up vacuum, and must never
be used on damp carpets or wet floors.
Important – in the event of the mains supply cable of this
vacuum requiring replacement, we recommend that this
be carried out by Electrolux Service Staff.
Spares
New filters, brush rolls and drive belts can be obtained
from Authorised Electrolux Dealers and electrical
retailers. If difficulty is experienced in obtaining spares
please call Electrolux Customer Care HELPLINE
08445 614614. Or visit our website at
www.shop.electrolux.co.uk
• Renew the filter pads regularly. This is essential to
ensure continued high filtration of dust particles.

Thermal cut-off
This vacuum has a special thermostat that protects the vacuum in case of motor overheating. If the vacuum switches off,
turn the switch to off position and unplug the vacuum. Check the vacuum for a possible source of overheating such as a
full dustbin, a blocked hose or clogged filter. If these conditions are found, fix them and wait at least 30 minutes before
attempting to use the vacuum. After the 30 minute period, plug the vacuum back in and press the power switch to turn
on (I). If the vacuum still does not run, please call Electrolux Customer Care Helpline.
