POWER-MATE ®STORAGE
The lower wand
has a "U" shaped
=4_
flange in the area
'_"
where the power
cord attaches. The
base has a "U"
shaped slot near
the front.
The flange allows
the wands and Power-Mate®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 Power-Mate ®, it must be in the
fiat 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.
THERMAL PROTECTOR
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.

from horizontal
into a vertical
position in order
for the vacuum
cleaner to rest on stairs.
