READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR UPRIGHT VACUUM.
Always connect to a polarized outlet (one slot is wider than the other). Unplug from outlet when not in use and before conducting maintenance. When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should be observed, including the following:

WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR INJURY: » Do not leave vacuum cleaner
when it is plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing. » Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces. » Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children. » Do not use for any purpose other than described in this user guide. Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments. » Do not use with damaged cord or plug. If appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, have it repaired at an authorized service center. » 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 appliance over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.

» 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 openings free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow.
» Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.

» Do not use to pick up toxic material (chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, etc.).
» Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches or hot ashes.
» Do not use without filters in place. » Do not pick up hard or sharp objects
such as glass, nails, screws, coins, etc. » Use only on dry, indoor surfaces. » Keep appliance on a level surface. » Do not carry the vacuum cleaner
while it is running. » Unplug before connecting or

This model is for household use only.

WARNING
>> Before using your vacuum, make sure the dirt tank is in locked position and that all filters, both pre- and post-filters, are in place. DO NOT operate your vacuum without these filters.
>> Plastic film can be dangerous. To avoid danger of suffocation, keep away from children.
>> Do not plug in your vacuum UNTIL you are familiar with all instructions and operating procedures.
>> To reduce the risk of electrical shock, turn power switch OFF and disconnect polarized plug from electrical outlet BEFORE performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks.

THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG

Hot Neutral

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is 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 a proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.
