Suction
THERMALPROTECTOR
This vacuum cleaner has a thermal
protector which automatically
trips to protect
the vacuum cleaner from overheating°
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 correct
problem:
Turn the vacuum
cleaner off and unplug the power cord
from the outlet to allow the vacuum
cleaner 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
cleaner
in and turn back on to see if the
motor
protector
has reset.
POWERMATE STORAGE
The wand has a "U" shaped
flange that slides into
the "U" shaped slot on
the canister,
"_
The flange allows the
wands and PowerMate
to be stored with the
canister to conserve
storage space. The
canister must be
stored on end for this
feature to be used_
To attach the PowerMate,
it must be in the
flat position as shown in the illustration.
Use
the handle release pedal to place it in this
position.
The wand will slip out of the slot as it is lifted
up for use and will slide into the slot as it is
lowered for storage.
STAIR GRIP
During normal operation while the canister is
in the horizontal position, the caster wheel
rotates freely 360 °
The Stair Grip
feature allows
the caster
wheel to lock in
position when
the vacuum
cleaner is
rotated 25 °
from horizontal into a vertical
position in
order for the canister to rest on stairs
HOW YOUR VACUUM CLEANER WORKS

The vacuum cleaner creates suction that
picks up dirt° Rapidly moving air carries the
dirt to the dust bag through the airflow pas-
sages_ The dust bag lets the air pass
through, while it traps the dirt.
For best cleaning results, keep the air-
flow passage open
Check the starred
Motor
areas occasionally
for clogs. Turn off
Safety
and unplug vacuum cleaner from
Filter
Exhaust
outlet before checking.
