IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

When using an electrical vacuum cleaner, basic precautions should always be followed including the following:

Read all instructions carefully before using this vacuum cleaner.

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

1 Do not use outdoors or on wet surfaces.

2 Do not leave vacuum cleaner unattended when plugged in. Unplug from outlet when not in use and beforeuser-servicing.

3 Close supervision is necessary when used by or near children. Do not allow this vacuum to be used as a toy.

4 Use only as described in this manual. Use only manufacturers recommended attachments.

5 Never operate this vacuum cleaner if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not working properly, if it has been dropped, damaged, exposed to weather or dropped into water.

Return the vacuum cleaner to a Sharp Authorized Servicer in the United States for examination and repair.

6 Do not pull or carry this vacuum cleaner by the power cord. Do not use the power cord as a handle, close a door on the cord, or pull the cord around sharp edges or corners. Keep cord away from heated surfaces.

7 Do not run the vacuum over the cord. Running over the cord may damage the insulation resulting in an electrical short. If the insulation is damaged, immediately remove the plug from the electrical outlet and bring the vacuum to a Sharp Authorized Servicer.

8 Never disconnect the plug by pulling on the cord. To disconnect from an outlet, grasp the plug, not the cord.

9 Never operate this vacuum cleaner with any air opening blocked. Keep the air openings free of dust, lint, hair and any other similar material.

17

Before removing the plug from the outlet, turn all controls to the “OFF” position.

Use extra caution when cleaning on stairs.

Never handle plug, cord or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.

Never touch the underside of the vacuum cleaner when it is plugged in. The rotating agitator may cause injury.

18 Do not use in presence of flammable or combustible liquids or fumes.

19 Do not place heavy objects on the vacuum cleaner.

20 Do not step on the hose or pull the hose forcibly.

21 Do not pick up objects such as waste paper, plastic sheets, tissue paper or wrappings which may clog the hose and filters. Do not pick up a large amount of dust at once. This may clog the filters and rapidly reduce the performance of the vacuum cleaner.

22 Do not expose this vacuum cleaner to high temperatures while operating or during23 storage.

24 Store this vacuum cleaner in a dry place.

25 Use the carrying handle on the back of the body to carry this vacuum cleaner. Before servicing this vacuum cleaner, allow all parts to cool.

CAUTION: To reduce the risk of electric shock, this vacuum cleaner 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 the proper outlet. Do not change the plug in any way.

WARNING: This vacuum contains a motor protection system to maximize the motor life. It is designed to shut off to avoid

overheating in case of a blockage or clogged filter. If the protection device is activated, the vacuum stops without turning off the switch. If this happens, turn off the vacuum and unplug the cleaner.

Please empty the dirt compartment, clean the net filter with water and check the main filter. After approximately 30 minutes the motor will have cooled and the vacuum will be ready to use. Operating this vacuum with clogged or dirty filters may cause the vacuum to overheat. Please clean the filters regularly.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

This vacuum cleaner is intended for household use only.

HEAT PROTECTION SYSTEM

This vacuum cleaner has a special thermostat that protects the motor from overheating. If the vacuum cleaner suddenly shuts off, turn off the vacuum and unplug the cleaner. Check the vacuum cleaner for a possible source of overheating such as a full dirt compartment or clogged filters. If these conditions are found, empty the dirt compartment and clean the filters (see pages 10 and 11) or replace if necessary (see page 15). To maintain the best performance of your vacuum cleaner, we recommend emptying the dirt compartment before the dirt reaches the “Max Fill Line” and clean the filters.
