IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING YOUR APPLIANCE.
Always connect to a polarized outlet (one slot is wider than the other). Unplug from outlet when not in use and before conducting maintenance. When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should be observed, including the following:

WARNING

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR INJURY:

  • Do not leave the vacuum cleaner 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 to be used as a toy. Close attention is necessary when used by or near children.
  • Do not use it for any purpose other than described in this user guide. Use only the manufacturer’s recommended attachments.
  • Do not use a damaged cord or plug. If the 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 the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.
  • Do not handle a plug or vacuum cleaner 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 airflow.
  • Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of the body away from openings and moving parts.
  • Turn all controls OFF before plugging or unplugging the vacuum cleaner.
  • Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
  • Do not use to pick up flammable or combustible materials (lighter fluid, gasoline, kerosene, etc.) or use in areas where they may be present.
  • Do not use a vacuum cleaner in an enclosed space filled with vapors given off by oil-based paint, paint thinner, some moth-proofing substances, flammable dust, or other explosive or toxic vapors.
  • Do not use to pick up toxic material (chlorine bleach, ammonia, drain cleaner, 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.
  • Do not pick up hard or sharp objects such as glass, nails, screws, coins, etc.
  • Use only on dry, indoor surfaces.
  • Keep appliance on a level surface.
  • Do not carry the vacuum cleaner while it is running.
  • Unplug before connecting or disconnecting the Pet TurboEraser® Tool.
  • Plastic film can be dangerous. To avoid the danger of suffocation, keep away from children.
  • Do not plug in your vacuum cleaner until you are familiar with all instructions and operating procedures.
  • Turn Power Switch OFF and disconnect the polarized plug from the electrical outlet BEFORE performing maintenance or troubleshooting checks.

Protecting the Vacuum’s Motor

For more assistance with your vacuum’s motor protection, visit support.BISSELL.com.

There is an internal thermal protector in your vacuum that protects it from overheating. It controls the main vacuum motor only, not the brush motor. When it activates, the main motor will stop. The front lights and Brush Roll will stay on but there won’t be any suction. If this happens, follow these steps:

  1. Turn vacuum OFF and unplug from electrical outlet.
  2. Check for the source of the overheating problem (full Dirt Tank, dirty filters or a clog) and fix by following the steps in the “Vacuum Won’t Pick Up Dirt” troubleshooting section.
  3. When the motor cools for approximately 30 minutes, the thermal protector automatically resets and cleaning may continue. If the vacuum will not turn ON or the thermal protector continues to activate contact Consumer Care.
