Safety Information
2. Safety Information
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
When using the vacuum cleaner, basic safety
precautions should always be observed, including the
following:
1. Only use the vacuum cleaner indoors on dry
surfaces.
2. Turn off the vacuum cleaner controls before
connecting to or disconnecting from the mains
supply.
3. Always unplug the vacuum cleaner before
connecting or disconnecting the vacuum hose.
4. Close attention is necessary when used by or near
children. Do not allow children to use as a toy.
5. Use only as described in this manual. Use only
the manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
6. Do not use the vacuum cleaner if it has been
dropped, damaged, left outdoors or dropped into
water. Do not use the vacuum cleaner with a
damaged cord or plug. If the supply cord or plug
is damaged, return the vacuum cleaner to a Vax
Authorised Service Agent or suitably qualified
person for examination, repair or adjustment.
7. Do not pull or carry by the cord. Do not use the
cord as a handle, close a door on the cord or pull
the cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not
run the vacuum cleaner over the cord. Keep the
cord away from heated surfaces.
8. Do not handle the plug or vacuum cleaner with
wet hands. Do not use outdoors or on wet
surfaces.
9. Do not put any objects into openings. Do not use
with any openings blocked and do not restrict air
flow. Keep all openings free of dust, lint, hair or
anything that may reduce airflow.
10. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of
the body away from openings and moving parts.
11. Do not pick up hot coals, cigarette butts,
matches or any hot, smoking or burning objects.
12. Do not pick up flammable or combustible
materials (lighter fluid, petrol, kerosene, etc) or
use in the presence of explosive liquids or
vapours.
13. Do not vacuum up harmful or toxic material
(chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, etc).
14. Do not vacuum up hard or sharp objects such as
glass, nails, screws, coins, etc.
15. Do not use without the filters in place.
16. Use extra care when vacuuming on stairs.
17. Keep vacuuming area well lit.
18. Store the vacuum cleaner indoors in a cool,
dry area.
19. Turn off the switch before unplugging.
20. Use only CE-approved 13 amp extension cords.
Non-approved extension cords may overheat.
Care should be taken to arrange the cord so that
the cord cannot be pulled or tripped over.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the vacuum
cleaner from the electrical outlet before assembling,
opening or emptying the dirt container, or before
connecting/disconnecting the attachments.
CAUTION: The vacuum cleaner is a very powerful
unit. Before plugging the cord into the outlet make
sure the switch is in the ‘off’ position. Hold the
vacuum cleaner firmly when starting and in use.
IMPORTANT: If the inlet or hose is blocked, switch off
the vacuum cleaner and remove the blockage(s)
before re-starting the vacuum cleaner.
IMPORTANT: Cleaning filters improves vacuum
performance. Make sure all filters are replaced back
into the vacuum cleaner before using.
This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use
only and not for commercial or industrial use.
PLEASE KEEP THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR
FURTHER USE.
Motor Thermostat
IMPORTANT: The motor is equipped with a thermal
cut-out. If for any reason, the vacuum cleaner
should over-heat, the thermostat will automatically
turn the unit off. Should this occur, unplug the
vacuum cleaner from the electrical outlet and turn
off the switch. Remove the dirt container and empty.
Clean the filters. Allow the cleaner to cool for
approximately one (1) hour.
To re-start, plug into an electrical outlet and switch
