IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

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

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR UPRIGHT VACUUM.

Always connect to a polarized outlet (one slot is wider than the other). 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 vacuum 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 vacuum cleaner or use as a toy.

Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.

Do not use for any purpose other than described in this User’s Guide.

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, have it repaired at an authorized 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 vacuum cleaner or plug with wet hands.

Do not put any object into openings. Do not use with any opening blocked; keep openings free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce air flow.

Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts.

Turn off all controls before plugging or unplugging vacuum cleaner.

Use extra care when cleaning stairs.

Unplug before attaching the TurboBrush.

Do not pick up flammable materials (lighter fluid, gasoline, kerosene, etc.) or use in the presence of explosive liquids or vapors.

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

Do not use vacuum 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 filters in place.

Use only on dry, indoor surfaces.

Keep appliance on a level surface.

Do not carry the vacuum cleaner while it is running.

Brush may unexpectedly restart. Unplug from outlet when cleaning or servicing.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE USE

THIS APPLIANCE HAS A POLARIZED PLUG.

To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. 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.

Using the tools

1Make sure the cleaner is in the upright position.

2.Remove the hose wand from the wand base. This automatically diverts the suction to the hose. Unwind the hose from the cleaner.

Note: To help prevent the machine from tipping, the hose should remain in the bottom hose clip.

3.Use the hose and wand alone or attach any of the tools to the end of the hose wand.

TurboBrush

Use rotating brush action for small areas such as stairs and upholstery.

Note: Press gently when using the TurboBrush to gain maximum cleaning. Too much pressure could cause the brush to stop rotating.

Combination brush

Use longer soft bristles for dusting.

Remove long bristle portion and use shorter stiff bristles when agitation is needed to remove debris.

ATTENTION:

Always place the vacuum cleaner on the floor in its fully upright position when using tools. Placing the vacuum in this position automatically stops the rotating brush.

Clearing clogs

Low suction or poor pickup may be due to a clog in the vacuum cleaner. If you notice a change in the sound of the motor or a reduction in the spinning action in the dirt container, check for a clog.

If there is no suction or if suction is reduced at the hose, follow these steps to check for and clear the clog:

1.Unplug cleaner from electrical outlet.

2.Check the foam filter and clean as necessary (see cleaning your foam filter on page 10).

3.Check the HEPA filter and replace if necessary (see replacing the HEPA filter cartridge on page 11).

4.Check to see if dirt container is full. Empty if needed.

5.Remove lower portion of dirt container. Clean the screen and check center tubes for dirt accumulation.

6.While dirt container is removed, check dirt inlet for clogs.

7.Remove the hose from the cleaner by twisting the collar counterclockwise. Straighten the hose and check for a clog.

8.Check diverter area at back of machine for diverter position and clogs. When the hose wand is removed from the base, the diverter should be up (8a). If a clog is visible near the diverter, the plastic cover may be removed to clear the clog by removing the 7 screws as shown (8b).

Clearing clogs continued

1

If suction is normal at the hose, follow these steps to check for and clear the clog for floor cleaning:

1.Check diverter area at back of machine for diverter position and clogs. When the hose wand is inserted in the base, the diverter should be down. If a clog is visible near the diverter, the plastic cover may be removed to

clear the clog by removing the 7 screws as

2a

shown in illustration 8b above.

2.Check the foot hose for clogs (2a). If you are not able to tell from the outside if a clog is present, remove the bottom 4 screws from the diverter cover to loosen and straighten the foot hose (2b).

Remove any clogs found and fully reassemble the cleaner before attempting to check suction again or using the cleaner.

Thermal Motor Protection

An internal thermal protector has been designed into your cleaner to protect it from overheating. When the thermal protector activates, the main vacuum motor will stop operating. If this happens, proceed as follows.

1.Turn the cleaner OFF and unplug from electrical outlet.

2.Check the cleaner for the source of overheating problem (i.e. full dirt cup, dirty filters or clog).

3.Fix the problem by following the steps in the maintenance section of the user guide.

4.When the motor cools for approximately 30 minutes, the thermal protector automatically resets and cleaning may continue. If the cleaner will not turn on or the thermal protector continues to activate, your cleaner may need servicing. Call BISSELL Consumer Services or visit the website.

Note: The thermal protector controls the main vacuum motor only, not the brush motor. If the thermal protector activates, the brush will continue to operate normally; however, there will be no suction.
