Do not leave vacuum cleaner when plugged in. Remove from inlet valve and unplug the electrical cord when not in use and before servicing.

Do not use extension cords or outlets with inadequate current carrying capacity.
Turn off all controls before unplugging.
Do not unplug by pulling on the cord. To unplug, grasp the plug, not the cord.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
The powerhead is designed to pick up dirt and dust particles. Avoid picking up hard or sharp objects with the powerhead to prevent bag tears, hose clogs, and fan blade breakage with subsequent motor damage.
DO NOT OIL. The motor in your Powerhead is permanently lubricated and sealed. Do not oil the motor at any time.
The model, type and serial numbers are indicated on the rating plate. For prompt and complete service information, always refer to these numbers when inquiring about service.
Straight Extension Wands
The two extension wands can be used individually or fitted together to increase the cleaning reach and permit comfortable stand-up floor cleaning.
POWERHEAD BRUSH ROLL BELT
Your motor driven powehead uses a belt to transfer power from electric motor to the revolving brush roll. One of the safety features in your powerhead is a design to let the belt slip if something becomes caught in the brush roll.
One result of this slip feature is belts that require occasional replacement. The length of time between replacement will vary based on your specific usage. Should you notice a reduction in cleaning, or if the belt is not turning in the belt-view window replace the belt.
Powerhead belts are not replaced under warranty, since they are designed to slip rather than permit damage to the motor.
HOW TO ASSEMBLE THE POWERHEAD
1. Snap together the two interlocking wands.
2. Push assembled wands into powerhead socket.
3. Place cord between cord guides on handle socket, as shown and turn to position.
4. Press cord into channels on wands.
To release handle, place foot on the motorized nozzle and pull the handle back to a comfortable work position. Return the handle to the upright position for storage.
EDGE KLEENER feature provides for improved cleaning of carpets near walls and stationary furniture. Slots on the sides of the nozzle increase air flow to the edge of the powerhead and add to the cleaning efficiency of the powerhead. To operate, simply run powerhead along edge board. Edge Kleener operates instantly and automatically.
Carpet Cleaning Adjustment
The motorized nozzle automatically adjusts to any carpet level for maximum cleaning. The amount of suction can be changed to fit your specific cleaning needs.
How to Replace Worn Belt
NOTE: Disconnect power cord from electrical outlet before replacing belt. Belt pully can become hot during normal use. To prevent burns, avoid touching the belt pulley when servicing the drive belt.
Turn the motorized nozzle over to remove the two screws which hold the cover in place.
From the top side of the motorized nozzle, grasp the hood near the handle socket and lift the hood forward to remove.
Lift the brush roll from the pulley end of the base to remove the worn belt from the brush roll.
Replace the new belt around the brush roll pulley and return the brush roll into the base. Check to be sure the opposite end of the brush roll is seated into the base. Then, insert the pulley end of the brush roll into the base with the flat edge of the end cap toward the top.
When the brush roll is seated, place the new belt ZAS099-BT beside the motor pulley and roll the brush roll to wrap the belt around both pulleys.
Tilt the cover over the ridge at the front of the base and push the cover down over the base. Be sure the slot inside the cover secures the ridge. Return the two screws to the underside of the motorized nozzle and tighten with a screwdriver.
