Caring for your floors
Check that the underside of the cleaner head or tool is clean and free from any objects that may cause damage.
Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs, and carpets, check the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning instructions.
The brush bar on your machine 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 motorised floor tool and consulting with your flooring manufacturer.

Charging your machine
It’s important to fully charge your new machine before using it for the first time, and after every clean. This is because the battery and monitoring system’s algorithm `learns’ over time, and fully charging your machine helps it to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
Connect to charger either directly or in the dock.
The blue LEDs on either side of the battery will flash during charging.
When the battery is fully charged, both LEDs will light for 5 seconds.
Your battery is fully charged when the display shows 100%.
Your machine won’t operate if the ambient temperature is below 10°C (50°F). This is designed to protect both the motor and battery.
Changing your click-in battery
Where you have additional batteries, we recommend that you alternate the batteries to maintain even performance.
|To remove a battery
Hold your hand under the battery to support it.
Press the red battery release button and slide the battery off the handle. Place the battery on charge.
|To install a battery
Slide the battery onto the handle until it clicks securely in place.
Emptying your bin
Empty as soon as the dirt reaches the MAX level don’t overfill. Using the machine when the dirt is above the MAX line may cause the dirt to reach the filter and more frequent maintenance will be required.

|To release the dirt:
Hold the machine over the bin in a downwards position.

The bin base won’t open if the red bin release button isn’t pushed down all the way.
|To minimise dust/allergen contact when emptying, cover the clear bin tightly in a dust proof bag while you empty. Remove the clear bin carefully from the bag. Seal the bag tightly and dispose.
Be careful not to pull the power trigger while the clear bin is open for emptying. To close the clear bin: Push the bin base upwards until the clear bin and bin base click into place.
Cleaning your bin
|If it is necessary to clean your bin, empty the bin as shown in the `Emptying your bin’ section.
Press the red button located on the bin runner to release the bin and slide the bin off the runner.
Clean the bin with a damp cloth only.
Make sure that the bin and seals are completely dry before replacing.

Close the bin by pushing the bin base upwards until the bin and bin base click into place.
The bin isn’t dishwasher safe and the use of detergents, polishes or air fresheners to clean the bin isn’t recommended as this may damage your machine.
Washing your filter
To always get the best performance from your machine, it is important to regularly clean the filters and check for blockages.
The LCD display will alert you when the filter unit needs washing. We recommend that you wash your filter at least once a month or when your machine alerts you.

|Wash the filter unit in cold water only.
Wash the pleated paper element of the filter unit first; hold the filter unit under a cold water tap with the foam element downwards and run cold water over the pleated paper.
|Wash the foam element of the filter unit next; hold the filter unit under a cold water tap with the foam element downwards so that dirty water does not contaminate the pleated paper element. Run cold water over the inside and outside of the foam element and squeeze the foam gently to expel the dirt.
Repeat washing both parts of the filter unit until the water runs clear.
Gently shake the filter unit to remove any excess water and leave to drain with the foam element end facing up.
Leave the filter unit to dry completely in a dry environment with good airflow, for a minimum of 24 hours.
|Check that the filter unit is completely dry.
To refit, position the filter unit in place on the main body and twist clockwise until it clicks into place.
The filter unit may require more frequent washing if vacuuming fine dust or if used mostly in Boost mode.
