READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING THIS VACUUM CLEANER.

2

WARNING

To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:

Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.

This appliance is provided with double insulation. Use only identical replacement parts. See instructions for Servicing of Double-Insulated Appliances.

Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Turn off the switch and unplug the electrical cord when not in use and before servicing.

Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.

Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.

Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If vacuum cleaner is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center before using.

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 unplugging.

Do not handle plug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands or operate without shoes.

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 pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.

Do not use without dust bag or filter(s) in place.

Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.

Do not pick up flammable or combustible liquids such as gasoline, or use in areas where they may be present.

Servicing of Double-Insulated Appliances

A double-insulated appliance is marked with one or more of the following: The words “DOUBLE INSULATION” or “DOUBLE INSULATED” or the double insulation symbol (square within a square).

In a double-insulated appliance, two systems of insulation are provided instead of grounding. No grounding means is provided on a double-insulated appliance, nor should a means for grounding be added to the appliance. Servicing a doubleinsulated appliance requires extreme care and knowledge of the system, and should be done only by qualified service personnel. Replacement parts for a double-insulated appliance must be identical to the parts they replace.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

Afin de réduire le risque de choc électrique, cet appareil est muni d’une fiche polarisée

(une des lames est plus large). Cette fiche ne peut être insérée dans une prise polarisée que d’une seule facon. Si la fiche ne peut être insérée dans la prise, retourner la fiche.

Si la fiche ne peut toujours pas être insérée dans la prise, faire installer une prise adéquate par un électricien qualifié. Ne pas modifier la fiche.

Automatic Motor Shut-Off

To protect from overheating, this vacuum cleaner is equipped with a thermostat which automatically shuts off the motor if it overheats. Should this happen:

1. Turn off the switch and unplug the cleaner because the thermostat will allow the cleaner to automatically start running again when the motor cools

(approximately 30 minutes).

2. Check the hose, bag and filter regularly, as a clogged hose, full bag or dirty filter could cause the motor to overheat.

3. Call a Eureka Service Station if the cleaner will not operate after cooling for approximately 30 minutes.

HOW TO USE

CAUTION: Moving parts. Make sure on/off switch is in off position before plugging in.

A carpet should be cleaned regularly over heavily traveled areas, and once a week over the entire carpeted area. Vacuum slowly, making several passes (forward and backward) over the carpet, covering small areas at a time. The time required to clean the carpet will depend on several factors–including type of carpet and amount of dirt.

HOW TO MAINTAIN

The instructions given in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. To avoid unnecessary service calls, check the hose, bag and filter often. Clear a clogged hose with the blower, change the bag if it is full, and clean the motor filter when it is dirty.

Disposable Dust Bags and Filters

The dust bag and motor filter play a very important roll in the efficiency of the vacuum cleaner. The purpose of the dust bag is to trap dirt, but at the same time, the paper bag must be porous enough to allow air to pass through. If the bag or the motor filter become clogged, no air can pass through the cleaner and no cleaning can take place regardless of how powerful the unit is. To keep the cleaner operating at maximum efficiency, change the dust bag frequently and clean the filter as needed. Some fine particles can restrict airflow very quickly and will decrease performance even before the bag appears to be full. For that reason, when vacuuming carpet fresheners or cleaners, powder, plaster dust, or similar fine substances, the bag and filter may need to be changed more often.

Look for the

Disposable Dust Bag

(optional)

Our high filtration bag is a two-layer, disposable bag that combines our standard paper bag with a nonwoven air filter inside. Use a Filteraire dust bag to create a cleaner indoor environment because the bag filters better than our standard bag. The bags are available

(three in a package) from your local dealer, or you can call 1-800-282-2886 for other locations. Look for the Genuine Eureka Filteraire dust bag–Style MM.
