Additional information

Please read the ‘Important safety instructions’ in the Dyson User manual before proceeding.
Installing your docking station

  •   Unpack the docking station, charger and installation leaflet.
  •  Choose a suitable location for the docking station and make sure there is no pipework (gas, water or air), electrical cables, wires or ductwork directly behind the mounting location.
  • Don’t locate the docking station near a heat source such as a cooker, radiator or in direct sunlight.
  •  Follow the instructions on the installation leaflet.
  •  Click the tools into place on the docking station.
  • Place the machine into the docking station.
  •  Plug the charger into the mains electricity supply. Switch on (if necessary) to charge the battery.
  •  It’s important to fully charge your new machine before using it for the first time, and after every use.

The docking station must be mounted in accordance with regulations and applicable codes/ standards (state and local laws may apply).
Dyson recommends the use of protective clothing, eyewear and materials when installing the docking station.

Using your machine

  •  Check that the underside of the cleaner head or tool is clean and free from foreign objects that may cause damage.
  • Before vacuuming your flooring, rugs and carpets, check the manufacturer’s recommended cleaning instructions.
  • The brush bar on the 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.

Emptying your clear 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.
  •  Be careful not to pull the power trigger while the clear bin is open for emptying.
  • Press the red wand release button and pull the wand away from the bin.
  •  To release the dirt:
    – Hold the machine over a bin in a downwards position.
    – Firmly push the red bin release button.
    – The bin will slide down, cleaning the shroud as it goes and the bin base will open.
    – 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 clear bin
If it is necessary to clean your clear bin, empty the bin as shown in the ‘Emptying your clear bin’ section.

  •   Press the red button located on the bin runner to release the bin and slide the bin off the runner.
  •  Clean the clear bin with a damp cloth only.
  •  Make sure that the clear bin and seals are completely dry before replacing.
  •  To refit the clear bin:
    – Insert the spine on to the bin runner.
    – Close the clear bin by pushing the bin base upwards until the clear bin and bin base click into place.
  • The clear bin is not dishwasher safe and the use of detergents, polishes or air fresheners to clean the clear bin is not recommended as this may damage your machine.

Looking for blockages

  • Your machine is fitted with an automatic cut-out. If any part becomes blocked, the machine may automatically cut out.
  •  The motor will pulse and the LCD screen will indicate that there is a blockage.
  • Leave to cool down before looking for blockages.
  • Be careful not to pull the power trigger while looking for blockages.
  • Make sure any blockages are clear and all parts are refitted before using your machine.
  •  Beware of sharp objects when checking for blockages.
  •  Clearing blockages is not covered by your guarantee.
  • To check for blockages in the main body of your machine, remove the clear bin following the instructions in the ‘Emptying your clear bin’ section and remove any blockage.
  • If you can’t clear an obstruction from the cleaner head, you may need to remove the brush bar. Use a coin to unlock the fastener, slide the brush bar out of the cleaner head and remove the obstruction. Replace the brush bar and securely tighten the fastener. Make sure it is fixed firmly before using your machine.
  •  Your machine has carbon fibre brushes. Take care if coming into contact with them , as they may cause minor skin irritation. Wash your hands after handling the brushes.

Washing your filter unit

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.

  •  Remove the filter unit by twisting it anticlockwise. Gently pull away from the machine.
  •  Tap the filter unit gently, to remove any excess dust and debris before washing it.
  •  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 use is mainly in Boost mode.
Don’t put any part of your machine in a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, microwave or near a naked flame.

Charging and storing

  •   This machine will switch off if the battery temperature is below 10°C (50°F). This is designed to protect the motor and battery. Do not charge the machine and then move  it to an area with a temperature below 10°C (50°F) for storage purposes.
  •  To help prolong battery life, avoid recharging immediately after a full discharge. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
