General Safety Information
FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
15.
Do not use without ALL of the filters in place.
When using the vacuum cleaner, basic safety precautions should always
be observed, including the following:
16.
Take extra care when vacuuming on stairs.
17.
Keep vacuuming area well lit.
1.
2.
Only use the vacuum cleaner indoors on dry surfaces. Do not
handle the plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands. Do not use
outdoors or on wet surfaces.
Turn off the vacuum cleaner controls before disconnecting or
connecting from the mains supply.
3.
Always unplug the vacuum cleaner before connecting or
disconnecting the vacuum hose and accessories.
4.
Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with
the appliance.
5.
This appliance is not intended for use by 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.
6.
Use only as described in this manual. Use only Vax
recommended attachments.
7.
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
is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer or a
recommended Service Agent to avoid hazard and
invalidating the guarantee.
8.
Do not pull or carry by cord. Do not use the cord as a handle,
close a door on the cord or pull cord around sharp edges or
corners. Do not run the vacuum cleaner over the cord. Keep the
cord away from heated surfaces.
18.
Store the vacuum cleaner in a cool, dry area.
19.
Turn off the on/off switch before unplugging the vacuum
cleaner
20.
Use only CE-approved 13 amp extension cords.
Non-approved cords may overheat. Care should be taken to
arrange the cord so that the cord cannot be tripped over.
WARNING: Always switch off and unplug the vacuum cleaner
from the electrical socket 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 electrical socket, make sure the
switch is in the ‘off’ position.
!
IMPORTANT: If the inlet, hose or telescopic tube is blocked,
switch off the vacuum cleaner and remove the blockage(s)
before re-starting the vacuum cleaner. See Maintenance: Clearing
blockages.
!
IMPORTANT: Washing filters maintains vacuum performance.
Vax recommends that they should
be checked and cleaned periodically (depending on the level of use).
Make sure all filters are completely dry before inserting back into the
vacuum cleaner.
!
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 might reduce airflow.
IMPORTANT: The motor is equipped with a thermal cut-out. If
for any reason the unit should overheat, the thermostat will
automatically turn the unit off. Should this occur, unplug the vacuum
cleaner from the electrical socket and turn off the switch. Remove dirt
container and empty. Clean filters. Allow the unit to cool for
approximately one (1) hour. To re-start, plug into an electrical outlet
and switch back on.
10.
Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers and all parts of the body away
from openings and moving parts.
This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use only and NOT for
commercial or industrial use.
11.
Do not pick up hot coals, cigarette butts, matches or any hot,
smoking or burning objects.
PLEASE KEEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR FURTHER USE.
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.
