» 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 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.

» Use only on dry, indoor surfaces.
» Keep appliance on a level surface.
» Do not carry the vacuum cleaner while it is running.

» 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.
