Grounding Instructions
This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resist-
ance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equip-
ment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of an equipment-grounding conductor can result in risk of electric shock. Check with qualified
electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance. If it will not fit the outlet, have proper outlet installed by a qualified technician. This
appliance is for use on a nominal 120 volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in
Figure A. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly ground outlet, Figure A, can be installed by a
qualified electrician. The green colored rigid ear, lug or the like extending from the adapter must be connected to a
permanent ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover.
Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted
by the Canadian Electrical Code.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, the hose with electrical wires 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 out-
let, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician
to install the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.


The built-in vacuum system is designed for dry pick up of household dirt and dust. Avoid picking up hard or sharp
objects with the system to prevent hose and plastic pipe damage or clogs.
Service Information
The instructions in this booklet serve as a guide to routine maintenance. For additional information, contact your

The model, type and serial numbers are indicated on the rat-
ing plate located on the control panel or motor hood. For
prompt and complete service information, always refer to
these numbers when inquiring about service.
If your home already has the system of plastic pipes and inlet valves, you are ready to install the power unit (refer to
Install Power Unit section below). If not, you can contract to have the system installed by a professional or you may
choose to do-it-yourself. If you plan to install the system yourself, it is important to carefully plan the location of
each inlet valve, the power unit, and the network of plastic pipes. This booklet only deals with the installation of the
power unit; "How-To" booklets are generally included with installation kits. Careful planning will help you deter-
mine the installation kits to buy. The kits should contain enough plastic pipe and fittings, and inlet valves for your
needs. Check with your dealer if you have any questions.
