Shark Rocket HV300/CS100 Series Ultra-Light Corded Stick Vacuum Manual

Shark Rocket HV300/CS100 Series Ultra-Light Corded Stick Vacuum Manual Image


To reduce the risk of electric shock, this vacuum cleaner has a polarized
plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a safety feature, this plug will
fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the
outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
DO NOT force into outlet or try to modify to fit.


When using an electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be
followed, including the following:

  1. Your vacuum cleaner may consist
    of a motorized nozzle, wand, hose,
    and/or vacuum pod. This device
    contains electrical connections,
    electrical wiring, and moving
    parts that potentially present risk
    to the user.
  2. Use only identical replacement parts.
  3. Carefully observe and follow
    the instructions provided below
    to avoid improper use of the
    appliance. DO NOT use the vacuum
    for any purpose other than those
    described in this manual.
  4. Before use, carefully inspect all
    parts for any damage. DO NOT
    use if any parts are damaged.
  5. The use of an extension cord is
    NOT recommended.
  6. This vacuum cleaner contains
    no serviceable parts.
  7. This appliance can be used by
    persons with reduced physical,
    sensory or mental capabilities or
    lack of experience and knowledge
    if they have been given supervision
    or instruction concerning use of
    the appliance in a safe way and
    understand the hazards involved.
    Cleaning and user maintenance shall
    not be made by children. Keep the
    appliance and its cord out of reach of
    children. DO NOT allow the appliance
    to be used by children. DO NOT allow

    cleaner with wet hands.

    a) DO NOT pull or carry vacuum
    cleaner by the cord or use the
    cord as a handle.
    b) DO NOT unplug by pulling
    on cord. Grasp the plug, not
    the cord.
    c) 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.
  13. DO NOT put any objects into nozzle
    or accessory openings. DO NOT use
    with any opening blocked; keep free
    of dust, lint, hair, and anything that
    may reduce airflow.

    airflow is restricted. If the air
    paths or the motorized floor
    nozzle become blocked, turn the
    vacuum cleaner off and unplug
    from electrical outlet. Remove all
    obstructions before you plug in

    on stairs.
  18. DO NOT leave the vacuum cleaner
    unattended while plugged in.
