• Do not leave Vac when plugged in.
Unplug from outlet when not in use and
before servicing.
• Sparks inside the motor can ignite
flammable vapors or dust. To reduce
the risk of fire or explosion, do not use

dusts, such as gasoline or other fuels,
lighter fluid, cleaners, oil-based paints,
natural gas, coal dust, magnesium
dust, grain dust, aluminum dust, or gun
• Do not vacuum anything that is burning
or smoking, such as cigarettes,
matches, or hot ashes.
• Do not vacuum drywall dust, cold
fireplace ash, or other fine dusts with
standard filter. These may pass through
the filter and be exhausted back into
the air. Use a fine dust filter instead.
• To reduce the risk of inhaling toxic
vapors, do not vacuum or use near
toxic or hazardous materials.
• To reduce the risk of electric shock,
do not expose to rain or allow liquid to
enter motor compartment. Store
• Do not allow to be used as a toy. Close
attention is necessary when used by or
near children.
• Do not use with a torn filter or without
the filter installed except when
vacuuming liquids as described in this
manual. Dry debris ingested by the
impeller may damage the motor or be
exhausted into the air.
