as cloth, rope, or large diameter sticks may obstruct the fan
and block the motor. A thermal protection device, which is
built into the blower vac, will cut o the electricity to the motor
to prevent damage from overheating.
In the event an obstruction occurs and power is curtailed:
1. Slide the ON/OFF switch to the OFF (O) position until the
unit comes to a complete stop.
