THERMAL PROTECTOR
This vacuum cleaner has a thermal
protector which automatically trips to
protect the vacuum cleaner suction motor.
If a clog prevents the normal flow of air to
the motor, the thermal protector turns the
motor off automatically. This allows the
motor to cool in order to prevent possible
damage to the vacuum cleaner.
To reset thermal protector: Turn the
vacuum cleaner off and unplug the power
cord from the outlet to allow the vacuum
cleaner to cool and the thermal protectors
to reset.
CAUTION
Always return the vacuum cleaner to
the upright position before using the
hose and attachments. Failure to do
so may result in overheating of the
brushroll motor and can cause the
thermal protectors to trip.
Check for and remove clogs, and
empty dust cup if necessary. Also check
and replace any clogged filters. Wait
approximately 50 minutes before restarting
vacuum cleaner.
BRUSHROLL RESET
The brushroll has built-in protection against
motor damage should the brushroll jam.
If the brushroll slows down or stops, the
brushroll overload protector shuts off the
brushroll motor and the brushroll status
indicator emits red light. The vacuum
cleaner suction motor will continue to run.
