MOTOR PROTECTOR
This vacuum
has a motor protector
by-
pass valve which automatically
opens to
provide
cooling
air to the motor when a
clog prevents
the normal
flow of air to the
motor. If the by-pass
valve opens to
prevent motor overheating
and possible
damage
to the vacuum,
you will notice a
change
of sound
as air rushes through
the
valve opening.
Note:
Do not
block motor
protector,
Motor
Protector
To correct
problem:
See the TROUBLE-
SHOOTING
chart.
Note: The motor protector
may open
when using attachments
or when cleaning
new carpet,
due to reduced
airflow by the
attachments
themselves
or by new carpet
fuzz filling the dust bin quickly.
See the
TROUBLESHOOTING
section.
PERFORMANCE
INDICATOR
When the unit is
running with
normal
air flow,
the light on the
performance
indicator
is off.
The light comes
on where
\Performance
airflow
becomes
Indicator
blocked.
If that occurs,
check the dust
bin, clean/replace
clogged
filters, and
check other possible clog locations
shown
in CLOG
REMOVAL
(see page 18).
To correct
problem:
See the TROUBLE-
SHOOTING
chart.
Note: The light may also come on when
using attachments,
due to reduced
airflow
through
the attachment.
Note: In some cases, the performance
indicator
light may not come on if the
motor protector
has opened.
AGITATOR
THERMAL
PROTECTOR
This agitator has a thermal protector which
automatically trips to protect the agitator
motor from overheating.
If a clog prevents
the normal flow of air to the motor, the
thermal protector turns the motor off
automatically
to allow the motor to cool in
order to prevent possible damage to the
vacuum.
During this time the headlight and
suction motor will remain on.
To correct
problem:
If this occurs, turn the
vacuum off and unplug the power cord from
the outlet to allow the agitator to cool and
the thermal protector to reset.
Check for
and remove
clogs, if necessary.
Also
check and replace any clogged filters.
Wait approximately
thirty (30) minutes
and plug the vacuum in and turn back on
to see if the motor protector
has reset.
The motor protector
will not reset if the
vacuum
is not turned off even if the
vacuum has cooled down.
AGITATOR OVERLOAD
PROTECTOR
The agitator has built-in protection
against
motor damage should the agitator jam. If the
agitator slows down or stops, the agitator
overload
protector shuts off the agitator. The
suction motor will continue to run.
To correct
problem:
Turn off and
unplug
vacuum,
remove
obstruction,
then press
reset button.
To reset:
Push in the agitator overload
protector
button.
