Using Turbo nozzle or Power nozzle (some models)
Precautions: Only use nozzle on carpets with a pile depth
under 15 mm. Do not use on animal skins or rugs with long
fringes. To avoid damaging your carpet, do not keep nozzle
stationary whilst brush is rotating. Do not pass nozzle over
mains cable and switch off nozzle immediately after use.
Attach turbo nozzle or power nozzle to tubes.
Connect power nozzle plug to power outlet on cleaner and
use clips to secure cable to tube and hose.
Power nozzle is activated by starting the cleaner.
Suction can also be regulated on turbo nozzle by
opening/closing air vent.
Cleaning Turbo nozzle or Power nozzle (some models)
Disconnect from mains and remove entangled threads from
nozzle by snipping threads with scissors.
Insert screwdriver to remove power nozzle cover. Remove
brush cylinder and supports. Clean as necessary and replace.
To clean wheels, gently lever them from their mountings.
Replace cover ensuring it is properly fastened.
Using combination nozzle/brush (some models)
Use in position shown for cleaning upholstery.
Use in position shown for dusting.
Attach to hose handle for storage.
s-bag™ indicator and changing the s-bag™
For peak performance the s-bag™ must be changed when
full. If the dust bag should accidentally get broken in the
cleaner, take cleaner to an Electrolux Service Centre for
The s-bag™ indicator window will gradually turn red when
filling and completely red when full.
To check the s-bag™, the cleaner must be switched on, with
all attachments connected and off the floor.
The s-bag™ full indicator may signify that the bag is blocked
(occasionally caused by very fine dust) which will cause loss
of suction and may result in overheating. If this occurs change
the dust bag even if it is not full.
To change the s-bag™:
A) Release catch and swing back lid.
B) Pull the sliding tab to remove the s-bag™.
C) Insert the new s-bag™ by sliding the bag slots onto the
holder. Close lid.
We recommend the s-bag™ is changed:
* after using a carpet cleaning powder.
* if there is a bad smell from the cleaner, then you should
also change/clean the filters.
Note: Use only Electrolux original s-bags™
and filters:
s-bags™ and motor protection filter (ref. E54)
Micro filter (ref. EF17)
Washable, reuseable HEPA filter (ref. EF26a).
For healthier homes
s-bag™ safety device
To avoid damaging the cleaner do not use it without a dust
bag. A safety device is fitted which prevents the cover closing
without a dust bag. Do not attempt to force cover shut.
Changing/Cleaning the filters
These should be changed/cleaned every fifth dust bag.
Never use the cleaner without the motor protection filter.
To change Motor Protection filter:
D) Release catch and swing back lid.
E) Discard the unit. Put in new filter and close lid.
To change Micro filter (some models):
F) Open the filter cover.
G) Discard the filter. Put in new filter unit and close lid.
To clean HEPA filter (some models):
H) Open filter cover and remove filter unit.
I) Rinse the inside (dirty side) of the filter under warm tap
water only. Do not use cleaning agents and avoid
touching the delicate filter service. Tap the filter to
remove excess water. Repeat cleaning procedure four
times and allow the filter to air dry. The original filtering
performance is now restored. Replace unit back into
cleaner and close cover.


Power: If the electric power does not come on, disconnect
from mains and check plugs, cable and fuses where
Blockages/dirty filters: The cleaner may switch itself off in
the event of a severe blockage or excessively dirty filter(s). In
such cases, disconnect from mains and allow to cool for 20-
30 minutes. Clear blockage and/or replace filter(s) and restart.
The clearing of blocked hoses is not covered by the guarantee.
To avoid blockages and maintain suction efficiency, the floor
nozzles should be cleaned regularly using the hose handle.
Please also see Electrolux additional information towards the
back of this booklet.
Water: If water is sucked into the cleaner the motor must be
changed at an Electrolux Service Centre.
