Rocket DuoClean with Self-Cleaning Brushroll Corded Stick Vac User Manual

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this vacuum cleaner has a polarized
plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will
fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
DO NOT force into outlet or try to modify to fit.

    electrical wiring, and moving
    parts that potentially present risk
    to the user.
  2. Use only identical replacement parts.

    the instructions provided below
    to avoid improper use of the
    appliance. DO NOT use the vacuum

    openings away from hair, face,
    fingers, uncovered feet, or
    loose clothing.
  16. DO NOT use if vacuum cleaner is
    not working as it should, or has
    been dropped, damaged, left
    outdoors, or dropped into water.
  17. Use extra care when cleaning
    on stairs.
  18. DO NOT leave the vacuum cleaner
    unattended while plugged in.
  19. When powered on, keep the

    on unstable surfaces such as chairs
    or tables.
  21. Your Shark® vacuum may not
    be designed to stand up on its own.

    a) Poorly lit areas
    b) Wet or damp surfaces

    in or unplugging the vacuum.
