  • DO NOT handle the lug or vacuum cleaner with wet hands.
  • DO NOT use without filters in place.

  • DO NOT damage the power cord:
    • DO NOT pull or carry the vacuum cleaner by the cord or use the cord as a handle.
    • DO NOT unplug by pulling on the cord. Grasp the plug, not the cord.
    • DO NOT run the vacuum cleaner over the power cord, close a door on the cord, pull the cord around sharp corners, or leave the cord near heated surfaces.
  • DO NOT put any objects into the nozzle or accessory openings. DO NOT use with any opening blocked; keep free of dust, lint, hair, and anything that may reduce airflow.
  • DO NOT use if nozzle or accessory airflow is restricted. If the air paths or the motorized floor nozzle become blocked, turn the vacuum cleaner off and unplug from the electrical outlet. Remove all obstructions before you plug in and turn on the unit again.

  • Use extra care when cleaning on stairs.
  • DO NOT leave the vacuum cleaner unattended while plugged in.
  • When powered on, keep the vacuum cleaner moving over the carpet surface at all times to avoid damaging the carpet fibers.
  • DO NOT place vacuum cleaners on unstable surfaces such as chairs or tables.
  • Your Shark® vacuum may not be designed to stand up on its own. When taking a break from cleaning, you may need to lean it against furniture or a wall or lay it flat on the floor. Using the vacuum for an application where the unit lacks stability may result in personal injury.
  • DO NOT use to pick up:
    • Liquids
    • Large objects
    • Hard or sharp objects (glass, nails, screws, or coins)

    • Poorly lit areas
    • Wet surfaces
    • Outdoor areas
    • Spaces that are enclosed and may contain explosive or toxic fumes or vapors (lighter fluid, gasoline, kerosene, paint, paint thinners, mothproofing substances, or flammable dust)
  • Turn off all controls before plugging in or unplugging the vacuum.
  • Unplug from electrical outlet when not in use and before any maintenance or cleaning.
  • Hand wash with water only. Washing with cleaning chemicals could damage the unit.
  • During cleaning or routine maintenance, DO NOT cut anything other than hair, fibers, or string wrapped around the brush roll.
  • Allow all filters to air-dry completely before replacing them in the vacuum to prevent liquid from being drawn into electric parts.
