A IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Follow basic safety precautions, including:
1 The cleaner should only be used by or under the supervision of a
responsible adult. It’s not a toy – don’t let children play with it.
2 Don’t put the cleaner in liquid; don’t use it anywhere
damp or wet.
3 Don’t use the cleaner near a gas, oil, or open ﬁre. The
ﬂame may be sucked towards the cleaner, causing a ﬁre hazard.
4 Keep hair, clothing, ﬁngers, toes, and pets away from the end
doing the sucking, and from the brush.
5 Stuﬀ you mustn’t pick up:
a) liquids – you’ll short the motor
b) stuﬀ that may ignite, like matches, bits of ﬁre-lighter
c) anything burning or smouldering (cigarette ends, ashes,
embers) – wait till they’re extinguished and cold
d) spillage from toner cartridges – the ﬁne particles may pass
through the ﬁlter, and short circuit the motor
e) cement or plaster dust – they’ll combine with moisture in the
air, clog the ﬁlter, scour the bin, and may burn out the motor
f) anything sharp – you may puncture the ﬁlter
g) anything biological – you’ll eventually have to clean it oﬀ the
ﬁlter, and viral particles may pass through the ﬁlter, reach the
air outlet, and enter your air supply
6 If you use the cleaner outdoors (e.g. cleaning the car), connect it
to the electricity supply via a residual current device (RCD), with a
rated residual operating current not exceeding 30mA.
7 Don’t leave the cleaner unattended when plugged in.
8 Unplug the cleaner and rewind the cable when not in use.
9 Keep an eye on the cable, so it doesn’t catch on anything, or trip
anyone up. Don’t run the cleaner over the cable, you’ll damage it.
10 If you’re using the cleaner on stairs, sit it where it can’t topple,
and keep it below you, so if it does topple, it won’t land on you.
11 Don’t use accessories or attachments unless we provide them.
