CARPETS OR HARD FLOORS
• Consult your flooring manufacturer’s recommended instructions before
vacuuming and caring for your flooring, rugs, and carpet.
The brush bar on the Dyson vacuum cleaner can damage certain carpet
types and floors.
• Some carpets will fuzz if a rotating brush bar is used when vacuuming. If this
happens, we recommend vacuuming without the motorhead and consulting with
your flooring manufacturer.
• Before vacuuming highly polished floors, such as wood or lino, first check that
the underside of the floor tool and its brushes are free from foreign objects that
could cause marking.
DOCKING STATION INSTALLATION
Use appropriate mounting hardware for your wall type and ensure that the
docking station is mounted securely. Ensure no pipe work (gas, water, air) or
electrical cables, wires or ductwork are located directly behind the mounting
area. The docking station must be mounted in accordance with regulations
and applicable codes/standards (state and local laws may apply). Dyson
recommends the use of protective clothing, eyeware and materials as necessary.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR DYSON APPLIANCE
• Do not carry out any maintenance or repair work other than that shown in this
Dyson Operating Manual, or advised by the Dyson Customer Care Helpline.
• Only use parts recommended by Dyson. If you do not this could invalidate your
Dyson guarantee.
• Store the appliance indoors. Do not use or store it below 0°C. Ensure the
appliance is at room temperature before operating.
• Clean the appliance only with a dry cloth. Do not use any lubricants, cleaning
agents, polishes or air fresheners on any part of the appliance.
VACUUMING
• Do not use without the clear bin and filter in place.
• Fine dirt such as plaster dust or flour should only be vacuumed in very small
amounts.
• Do not use the appliance to pick up sharp hard objects, small toys, pins, paper
clips, etc. They may damage the appliance.
• When vacuuming, certain carpets may generate small static charges in the
clear bin or nozzle. These are harmless and are not associated with the mains
electricity supply. To minimise any effect from this, do not put your hand or
insert any object into the clear bin unless you have first emptied it and cleaned it
with a damp cloth (see ‘Cleaning the clear bin’ on page5).
• Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
• Do not rest the appliance on chairs, tables, etc.
• Do not press down on the nozzle with excessive force when using the appliance
as this may cause damage.
• Do not leave the cleaner head in one place on delicate floors.
• On waxed floors the movement of the cleaner head may create an uneven
lustre. If this happens, wipe with a damp cloth, polish the area with wax, and
wait for it to dry.
