Before you start … check the voltage

Before connecting the cleaner to an electrical supply ensure that voltage marked on the data plate (beneath the cleaner) is correct for your electrical supply. If it is not, do not use the cleaner but refer back to your dealer.

Connecting to your electrical supply

Permanently connected to the cleaner is a mains supply (2-core)cable fitted with anon-rewirableplug incorporating a 13A fuse. In the event of the fuse requiring replacement the fuse cover should be removed using a small screwdriver. The old fuseMUST be replaced by a 13A ASTA approved BS1362 fuse and the fuse cover must be replaced before the plug is used again. In the event of loss of the fuse cover, replacements can be obtained from your Electrolux dealer or Electricity Board and must be of the same colour as indicated by the coloured insert on the base plug.

If difficulty is experienced in obtaining a replacement, contact your nearest Electrolux Service Centre.

In no circumstances must be plug be used without a correct fuse cover fitted.

If the plug that is fitted to your appliance is not suitable for your socket outlet, it must be cut off and the appropriate plug fitted. Remove the fuse from the cut off plug. The cut off plug should then be disposed of to prevent hazard of shocks in case it should be plugged into a 13 Amp socket in another part of your home.

The wires in the mains cable of this appliance are coloured in accordance with the following code:

Blue: Neutral.

Brown: Live.

As the colours of the wires in the mains cable of this appliance may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug, proceed as follows:

The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which marked with the letter N or coloured black.

The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked the letter L or coloured red.

If using a three-pinplug, do not make any connection to the terminal marked with the letter E or by the earth symbolor coloured green orgreen-and-yellow.This cleaner is double insulated and noearth-connectionis necessary.

It is in your interest to ensure that the plug is correctly attached to the mains cable. In case of doubt, consult a qualified electrician, as Electrolux cannot regard the repair of faults on the plug connection as a service that can be given free of charge under the terms of guarantee.

A general guide to fitting any plug:

Ensure the lengths of wire inside the plug are prepared correctly.

Connection should be firmly made after all conductor stands are entered into the terminal posts.

When preparing the cable ends take care not to damage the outer seal, or insulation surrounding the inner conductors.

Tighten all screws.

Replace the top cover of the plug and secure.
