Instruction Manual

Safety instructions

Read all of this manual carefully, observing all
the recommended safety instructions before,
during and after using your machine. Maintain
your machine in good working order.
Familiarise yourself with the controls on your
machine before attempting to operate it, but
above all, be sure you know how to stop
your machine in an emergency.
Retain this manual and all other literature
supplied with your machine for future

Electrical connection


Double insulation

Your machine is double insulated. This
means that all external metal parts are
electrically isolated from the power supply.
This is achieved by placing an extra
insulation barrier between the electrical and
mechanical parts. Double insulation means
greater electrical safety and obviates the
necessity of having the machine earthed.
Power supply cord
Your machine is designed for use on AC
(mains) electrical supplies only. Do not
attempt to use on any other supply.
Plug your machine into a power point,
never in a light socket.
Do not leave your machine unattended
whilst it is connected to the electrical supply.
Always switch off and remove the plug
from the mains before cleaning,
inspecting or adjusting any part of the
trimmer, or if the supply cord has
become damaged or entangled.
The power supply cord should be
regularly inspected for signs of damage or
ageing and only used if in good condition.
Always keep the power supply cord
away from the cutting line (9), be aware
of its position at all times.
Never carry your machine by the cord or
jerk the cord to remove the plug from the
socket. Keep the cord away from heat,
oils and sharp edges.
Have damaged cords replaced
completely by your nearest Black & Decker
service centre. Do not attempt to do this
yourself as the switch handle is not
customer serviceable.
