This vacuum cleaner
has thermal
protectors
which automatically
trip to
protect the agitator
motors. The thermal
protectors
turn the motors

vacuum cleaner
off and unplug the power
cord
from the outlet to allow the vacuum

BY-PASS VALVE
This vacuum
cleaner
has a By-Pass Valve
which prevents motor
overheating
and
damage.

cooling
air when a clog prevents normal
air flow
to the vacuum
cleaner
suction
motor. You wilt notice
a change
of sound
as air rushes through
the valve opening.

To correct problem,
install a new dust
bag. If using attachments,
adjust suction
control to allow
for greater
air flow.
NOTE: The By-Pass Valve may open when
using attachments or when cleaning new
carpet due to reduced airflow caused by
the attachments
themselves or by new
carpet lint filling the dust bag quickly.
NOTE:
Do not block By-Pass Valve.
