THERMAL PROTECTOR
This vacuum cleaner has a thermal
protector which automatically trips to protect
the vacuum cleaner from overheating. If a
clog prevents the normal flow of air to the
motor, the thermal protector turns the
motor off automatically. This allows the
motor to cool in order to prevent possible
damage to the vacuum cleaner_
To correct problem:
Turn the vacuum
cleaner off and unplug the power cord
from the outlet to allow the vacuum
cleaner to cool and the thermal protector
to reset. Check for and remove clogs, if
necessary.
Also check and replace any
clogged filters.Wait
approximately
thirty (30) minutes and plug the vacuum
cleaner in and turn back on to see if the
motor protector
has reset.
