This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Children should not be allowed to tamper with the controls or play with the product.
It is dangerous to alter the specifications or modify the product in any way.
Always store your vacuum cleaner in a dry place away from damp atmosphere and do not use it to pick up water or other liquids.
Do not use the appliance in the presence of flammable gasses.
Never allow anyone to have access to the rotating brush of the appliance (if fitted) unless the appliance is disconnected from the mains supply.
Never leave the appliance running unattended.
Remove the plug from the wall socket before attempting any form of user maintenance specified in the user instruction booklet.
Do not carry or drag your vacuum cleaner by the mains supply cable.
Do not tug at the mains supply cable to remove the plug from the wall socket.
Ensure the mains supply cable is kept well away from the rotating brushes (where fitted) of your appliance whilst in operation.
Keep the mains supply cable away from heat, oil, sharp edges and rough surfaces. Always ensure that the cable is not damaged in any way.
Never pick up hot cinders or lighted cigarette ends.
Extreme care is required when cleaning stair carpets with your appliance. Ensure that your cleaner is in a stable position at the bottom of
the stairs, and take care not to stretch the hose beyond its actual length. Always ensure when using your cleaner on the stair treads that
you keep one hand firmly on the appliance.
• Dust bags and filters (depending on model) should be changed at regular intervals as stated in your instruction booklet.
• Always use genuine Electrolux dust bags and filters.
• Do not place the air freshener loose inside the dust bag compartment or cyclonic dust cup.
• Do not use the appliance without a dust bag or with the dust cover removed or dust cup.
• When fitting and changing the accessories always follow the instructions in the instruction booklet.
• Under no circumstances should you attempt to repair the appliance yourself. Repairs undertaken by unauthorised or inexperienced persons
may cause injury and/or serious malfunctioning.
• This appliance should be serviced by authorised Electrolux personnel and only genuine Electrolux spare parts should be used.
• The supply cable fitted to your machine is of two core construction. Where a moulded-on plug is not fitted the leads at the end of the
cable are not prepared for a specific type of plug.
As a general guide to fitting any plug
• Ensure the lengths of wire inside the plug are prepared correctly.
• Connections should be firmly made after all conductor strands are entered into the terminal posts.
• When preparing the cable ends take care not to damage the outer sheath, or the insulation surrounding the inner conductors.
• Tighten all screws.
• Replace the top cover of the plug and secure.
Extension Cable
• If using an extension cable at any time always ensure that the insulation sheath is in good condition and is not damaged in any way.
• Make sure that the socket is fitted to the extension cable correctly, if in doubt have it checked by a Qualified electrician.
Double Insulation
• 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.
The symbol
on the product or on its packaging indicates that this product may not be treated as household waste.
Instead it shall be handed over to the applicable collection point for the recycling of electrical and electronic equipment. By
ensuring this product is disposed of correctly, you will help prevent potential negative consequences for the environment and

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.

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 bag 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 bag
chamber or dust cup.
WARNING
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 Electrolux on 08706 055055. Before requesting service,
please check whether your problem is covered under Service Checklist (see below).
New filter pads, dust bags, brush rollers and drive belts can be obtained from Electrolux Retailers. If difficulty is experienced in
obtaining spares, please contact Electrolux on 08706 055055.
SERVICE CHECKLIST
• If your cleaner will not operate, check the plug connection, plug fuse and mains fuse.
• Never allow the dust bag 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 bag, offering greater resistance to
air-flow and will reduce cleaning efficiency if the bag becomes overloaded. Always ensure that you have a spare genuine Electrolux dust
bag.
• Always store your cleaner and spare dust bags/filters 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 us on 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 Electrolux Service Staff.
Spares
New filters, dust bags, brush rollers and drive belts can be obtained from Authorised Electrolux Dealers and electrical retailers.
If difficulty is experienced in obtaining spares please see the Mail order form on page 17 or call us on 08706 055055.

HOW TO MAINTAIN
The instructions in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls, check the bag,
belt, and brush roll often.
Check and Clear Hose Blockages
Low suction or poor pickup may be due to a blockage in the vacuum cleaner.
1. Remove hose and check suction at end of hose - if little or no
suction, check disposable dust bag. Change if needed. If no
improvement proceed to Step 2.
NOTE:
1
Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord before
clearing hose.
2. Remove the handle from the vacuum cleaner by removing the
two screws and sliding the handle towards the rear.
3. Once the handle is removed, disconnect the attachment hose
from the unit by lifting straight up on the hose adapter.
Check for any obstructions that may be in the hose. Any
obstructions can be removed by using a blunt instrument to
clear the hose. Flexing the hose may help loosen the clog.
4. Reinstall the hose after clearing the clog. Make sure the hose is
inserted into the top of the vacuum cleaner before reattaching
the handle.
NOTE:

tighten the two hood screws (see Figure 2). Raise the
handle to the upright position (see Figure 3) and replace
the hose into the lower hose retainer.
NOTE: Blockages are not covered by the guarantee and any service calls to clear a blockage will be chargeable.
11
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 bristles must touch the carpet. To test the bristle length,
hold a ruler against the underneath side of the cleaner. If the
bristles no longer touch the ruler, replace the brush roll.
5
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.

Cyclonic Cassette
||
The disposable dust bag plays a very important role in the
efficiency of a vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the paper bag
is to trap dirt. As the bag traps dirt, it must also be porous
enough to allow air to pass on through. Change the dust
bag and check the filters frequently. Some fine particles can
restrict airflow very quickly and will decrease performance
even before the bag appears to be full.

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.

lifting the brush roll off the carpet a couple of inches.
2. After a few seconds the red light should turn off.
