IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR APPLIANCE.
When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should be observed, including the following:


WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY:

  • 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 the use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
  • Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
  • Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of the body away from openings and moving parts of the appliance and its accessories.
  • Do not use with damaged cable or plug.
  • If the charger supply cable is damaged, it must be replaced by the manufacturer, its service agent, or a similarly qualified person in order to avoid a hazard.
  • Do not incinerate the appliance even if it is severely damaged. The batteries can explode in a fire.
  • The battery is to be disposed of safely.
  • This appliance contains batteries that are only replaceable by skilled persons.
  • Under abusive conditions, liquid may be ejected from the battery; avoid contact. If contact accidentally occurs, flush with water. If liquid contacts the eyes, additionally seek
    medical help. Liquid ejected from the battery may cause irritation or burns.
  • Recharge only with the charger specified by the manufacturer. A charger that is suitable for one type of battery pack may create a risk of fire when used with another battery pack.
  • Unplug the charger from the electrical socket when not in use, before cleaning, maintaining, or servicing the appliance, and if your appliance has an accessory tool with a moving brush, before connecting or disconnecting the tool.
  • Do not use a damaged cable or charger. If the appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center.
  • Turn OFF all controls before unplugging.
  • Do not pull or carry the charger by cable, use the cable as a handle, close door on the cable, or pull the cable around sharp edges or corners.
  • Keep charger cable away from heated surfaces.
  • To unplug, grasp the charger plug, not the cable.
  • Do not handle charger plug or appliance with wet hands.
  • Battery pack and charger base output terminals are not to be short-circuited.
  • Do not charge the machine outdoors.
  • The appliance must be disconnected from the supply mains when removing the battery.
  • Do not recharge, disassemble, heat above 60°C, or incinerate.
  • Keep batteries out of reach of children.
  • Dispose of used batteries promptly.
  • Never put batteries in your mouth. If swallowed, contact your physician or local poison control.
  • Prevent unintentional starting. Ensure the switch is in the OFF position before picking up or carrying the appliance. Carrying the appliance with your finger on the switch or energizing appliance that has the switch on invites accidents.
  • Do not use an appliance that is damaged or modified. Damaged or modified batteries may exhibit unpredictable behavior resulting in fire, explosion, or risk of injury.
  • Do not expose the appliance to fire or excessive temperature. Exposure to fire or temperature above 130°C may cause an explosion.
  • Follow all charging instructions and do not charge the appliance outside of the temperature range specified in the instructions. Charging improperly or at temperatures outside of the specified range may damage the battery and increase the risk of fire.
  • Have servicing performed by a qualified repair person using only identical replacement parts. This will ensure that the safety of the product is maintained.
  • Do not modify or attempt to repair the appliance except as indicated in the instructions for use and care.
  • Keep the temperature range between 4-30°C when charging the battery, storing the machine, or during use.
  • Plastic film can be dangerous. To avoid the danger of suffocation, keep away from children.
  • Use only as described in this user guide.
  • Use only the manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
  • If the appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water; do not attempt to operate it and have it repaired at an authorized service center.
  • 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.
  • Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
  • Do not use it to pick up flammable or combustible liquids, such as petroleum, or use it in areas where they may be present.
  • Do not pick up toxic material (chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, etc.).
  • Do not use the appliance in an enclosed space filled with vapors given off by oil-based paint, paint thinner, some moth-proofing substances, flammable dust, or other explosive or toxic vapors.
  • 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 use it on wet surfaces. Do not expose to rain. Store indoors.
  • Use only the detachable supply unit provided with this appliance, Model SSC-320110AU.
