IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should be observed, including the following:

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR VACUUM.

Always connect to a polarized outlet (left slot is wider than right). Unplug from outlet when not in use and before conducting maintenance.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or injury:

Do not modify the polarized plug to fit a non-polarizedoutlet or extension cord.

Do not leave deep cleaner unattended when it is plugged in.

Unplug from outlet when not in use and before servicing.

Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.

Do not allow children to operate deep cleaner or use as a toy.

Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.

Use only manufacturer’s recommended attachments.

Do not use with damaged cord or plug.

If appliance is not working as it should, has been dropped, damaged, left outdoors, or dropped into water, return it to a service center.

Do not pull or carry by cord, use cord as a handle, close a door on cord, or pull cord around sharp edges or corners. Do not run appliance over cord. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.

Do not unplug by pulling on cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.

Do not handle deep cleaner or plug with wet hands.

Do not pick up toxic material (chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, etc.).

Do not use deep cleaner in an enclosed space filled with vapors given off by oil base paint, paint thinner, some moth proofing substances, flammable dust, or other explosive or toxic vapors.

Do not pick up hard or sharp objects such as glass, nails, screws, coins, etc.

Do not pick up anything that is burning or smoking, such as cigarettes, matches, or hot ashes.

Do not use without dust bag and/or filters in place.

Use only on dry, indoor surfaces.

Keep appliance on a level surface.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE USE.

If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

This model is for household use only.
