• 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 parking and 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. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings
and moving parts.
• Do not place vacuum on furniture or stairs as the brush roll may cause damage.
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs. Do not place vacuum at top of stairs. Do not put on stair treads.
• Use extra care when cleaning area rugs as the brush roll may cause damage.
• Unplug before connecting turbo nozzle (if supplied) or other attachments. Place vacuum on floor with the handle in
upright 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 dustbin or filter(s) in place.
• Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as petrol, or use in areas where they may be present.
• Store your vacuum indoors in a cool, dry area.
• Keep your work area well lighted.
• Unplug electrical appliances before vacuuming them.
• Brush roll could suddenly restart. Unplug before servicing.
• Care should be taken not to over stretch the hose when using tools.
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 on/off switch off (0) and unplug the cleaner. Check the cleaner 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 cleaner. After the 30 minute period, plug the cleaner back in and push
the on/off switch on (l). If the cleaner still does not run, then take it to an Electrolux Group Authorized Service Center
for repair.
Follow caution information whenever you see this symbol.

The brush roll 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 the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by a AEG Service Agent or similar qualified person in order to
avoid a hazard.
4.NEVER use the machine with a damaged mains supply cable.
Before connecting the cleaner to an electrical supply, ensure that the voltage shown on the rating plate located
beneath 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.
• 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 AEG 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 AEG Customer Services on 08445 614 614.
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.
• 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.
• 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, consult
a qualified electrician, as AEG 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.

Service Checklist
• If your cleaner will not operate, check the plug connection, plug fuse and mains fuse.
• Never allow the dustbin to become so full that it impedes the airflow, thus reducing the cleaning efficiency of the
machine. The character of household dust and its effect on the airflow 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 the cup becomes
• Always store your cleaner and spare dust 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. AEG 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 AEG on
08445 614 614. Calls to this number will be charged at 5p per minute at all times from a BT Landline.
• 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 - If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by a AEG Service Agent or similar qualified person
