This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or brake down,
grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical current to
reduce the risk of electrical shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord
having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug
must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can
result in electrical shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service
person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly
grounded, or if the outlet does not fit into an outlet. Do not modify the
plug provided with the appliance.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a special cord
available from your local authorized dealer/distributor.
The instructions in this booklet serve as a guide to routine
maintenance. For additional information, contact your nearest

Your home is most likely already fitted with the system of plastic
pipes and inlet valves and you are ready to install the central power
unit. If your home is not fitted for a central vacuum system, you can
contract to have the Electrolux Central Vacuum System installed
by a professional by contacting your local dealer or distributor or
choose to do-it-yourself.
The central power unit should be located as far away from the general
living area as possible, yet accessible so you can remove the dirt
receptacle, reach the filter, and inspect the central power unit.
A typical location would be in a garage, where you could vacuum
your car or garage area, and where emptying the dirt receptacle
and cleaning the filter would be more convenient. Other suitable
locations are in the basement, laundry room, or ventilated
storage room.
Use caution when drilling holes in walls as gas pipelines and water
pipes and electrical wires may be present. Holes in the masonry
are only allowable if through it its standing stability is not impaired.
Holes in wood studs should be drilled. Depending on what material
your home is built with, use the appropriate anchors to hang your
power unit. Power unit simply slides onto mounting bracket and
clicks into place.

• Place the central power unit in a place that is removed from
the general living area. The exhaust should be easy to connect
to a ventilation pipe. This can be done regardless of the house's
construction material.
• Locate the two low voltage wires near the main pipe. Remove
the insulation from the low volt wire. Insert the low volt wire into
the spring loaded low volt connectors. Be certain you comply
with your local electrical codes and regulations.

• Make sure there is a dedicated electric socket for the power unit.
• Plug in your CVS with the supplied power cord.
Your Electrolux Oxygen CVS does not require the assembly of a
muffler. Your CVS has the muffler installed internally. You may however
desire to exhaust the air outside. In this case you will need to attach
the exhaust adapter. This will convert the size of the exhaust to the
diameter of the central vacuum pipe.
